Yoga ~ Mindfulness ~ Meditation by the Sea
Relax into your Wonderful Self! Enjoy daily yoga, meditation, and mindfulness practices in a birder’s paradise in authentic Mexico at it’s finest. Take in this quiet, relaxing, small, friendly fishing village. Our beautiful villa is just steps off the beach and the surrounding Pacific Ocean. Step into a cultural immersion sure to inspire.
Your investment includes accommodations, daily Qi Gong infused Hatha & Restorative Yoga, guided meditations, daily breakfast & most dinners prepared on site with Mari and her delicious family recipes with local, fresh ingredients. Options include whale watching, birding excursions, hiking to the volcano crater with long, magical views, on site massage therapy & a very special cultural trip into the mountains with the indigenous tribe sharing their arts & traditions. We also will have the opportunity to take our yoga practice off the mat and pay it forward by participating in a service project in the local village, supporting a community organized effort to spread love and service, our true nature brought into action.
Space is very limited on this intimate retreat that feeds the soul.
The location is choice! The mix of down time and the options for group outings worked for me. I loved meeting the indigenous tribe's elders. Enjoyed our sunset walks, yoga, meditations immensely. The evening circles added closure to each day and was important to me. I appreciate your guidance, your sense of humor, the music you choose...Our morning yoga and meditation was what I looked forward to every day! Bliss!!! –JW, Maine
Thanks for the blessings, the fun, the love. The facility was perfecto! I loved the way you set the atmosphere, found the middle ground with our group, during the yoga practices...the evening circles were close and intimate experiences which continued to reinforce community. The outings were a great mix of experiences. I am glad so much was available, yet optional at the same time. I would definitely recommend this retreat in this locale!! It's close to the beach, the village...it's beautiful...an oasis. You are awesome and I would return! –Janet, Maine
The location and the facility was excellent all around. Everything that we needed or wanted was there. I so appreciated your compassion and kindness during my transition and ascension. –Brenda, Maine
For me the retreat was the right balance of yoga meditation. Quiet reflective time and exploring time.I went there not knowing anyone except you and at first felt uncomfortable but told myself this was all about me learning to like myself more and it was for my personal self growth.Our outing to the bird sanctuary was great and I enjoyed the day a lot.The hike up to volcano crater was good as it was wonderful to see the town from a higher view. The meals were fantastico and we love Mari and her family!! I love the way you teach and I am a Jen yoga teacher convert. I appreciate the way you run a retreat as you managed to find time to connect and make everyone feel your love and intention. Bravo –K Dunn, Maine
Your yoga is perfect for me. You bring together a lovely group of women - that was the best part. Chicala itself is a gem. –Nan Cardella, PA
What worked for me was Everything! The structure of the day with retreat activities, free time, meal times, gave a continuous flow of good energy through the day. So what do I mean by good energy: Continuity, Peacefulness & Mindfulness, the mindfulness,being captured by the Noble Silence. I gained "Strength", through the outer strength I began to feel from the Yoga lent to a deeper inner strength. Through the risk of sharing ourselves with women we did not know, I felt a "connectivity" with our human experience. I truly felt "refreshed" in every way, through the physical aspect; meditations, sharing, and the beautiful environment, and the meals!! Much Love & Gratitude to you as your special spirit has enriched us all! –Kathleen Stevens, Maine
Everything worked for me. The location, the amenities, the people, your message & vibe, the yoga & meditating, the amount of time we spent together, the amount of alone time I had. I gained a true knowledge of the value and importance of being quiet. I knew this but to experience it was amazing. Noble Silence was a gift! And having you walk us through breathing was huge. I think I didn't know how to breathe properly my whole life. Or if I did I forgot and that made a huge difference in me being able to focus and concentrate and relax. Thanks so much Jen. I think your're especially wonderful!! –Karen Wilson, Maine
A gentleman I work with said to me, "Hey, look at you...you're back, looking healthy as ever and look at that bounce you have back in your step!" Mission accomplished! I am so grateful he noticed because that is what I have really missed. It's back! My heart, mind and spirit are so much lighter since joining your retreat. It has been great for my soul. I knew I needed it and I am so glad I did it. I have really found myself again. Thank you Jen! –Robin Matthews, Connecticut
