Winter Retreat to Holbox Island, Mexico! with Cassandra Ferland and Aino Siren

February 11 - February 18

| $1285 - $2335 |


For their fifth annual yoga retreat, Cassandra and Aino return to the stunning Holbox island, Mexico for a weeklong getaway. The island is part of an ecological reserve In the Yucatan Peninsula, separated from the mainland by a shallow lagoon that is home to flamingos, pelicans and other rich birdlife. Holbox is a Mayan name that translates to ‘black hole’; a place where time and space seem to disappear. That is the effect the island has on its visitors; deeply relaxing the mind, body and soul. It is a quiet, spacious oasis with no public cars. Palapas del Sol, our setting for the week, is a beautiful oceanfront hotelito complete with a salt water pool,
beautifully furnished dining area, and cottages made from locally sourced materials. The food is divine- fresh, organic, and lovingly prepared by the gracious Mayan people who work there. It’s just 90 minutes from the Cancun airport, via car (1h), ferry (25min) and golf cart (5min). The nearby town gives the perfect opportunity to further explore the food
and culture of the island.

Each day includes an enlivening morning yoga, meditation, and afternoon classes that alternate between deep stretch restorative classes and power yoga. Classes will be held on Palapas brand new Yoga Shala, on the top floor of the main building, which provides panoramic views of the beach, ocean mangrove, and lagoon as well as both sunrise and sunsets. Join us for an unforgettable experience and a chance to deepen your practice, leaving you recharged and renewed!



Daily options for activities include:

  • Relax or sunbathe on the beach, in a beachside cabana, or in the seawater infinity pool
  • Rent a Paddleboard or Kiteboard; Holbox has one of the safest beaches for learning how to kite board with professional instructors.
  • Isla Pajaros (Bird Island) is a 30 minute boat ride, and tours are available to view more than 140 species of birds including pink flamingos
  • Visit fresh water swimming holes bordering the lagoon that separates Isla Holbox from the mainland.
  • Deep sea or fly fishing
  • An optional adventure day trip to explore Mayan Ruins and a Cenote on the mainland of the Yucatan peninsula
  • Pamper yourself with massage, Marma, Raindrop Technique, or private yoga
  • An evening outing to a nearby local restaurant



All rooms at Palapas del Sol are on the beach and feature a private bath, AC, elegant Caribbean décor with wood floors, and wifi. Many have ocean views. We will honor room requests on a first come, first served basis. Space is limited!

Cassandra Ferland and Aino Siren first bonded over a shared love of yoga, travel, and adventure. Their teaching styles are a great compliment to one another. Cassandra is known for her dynamic and challenging classes featuring creative sequencing, while Aino’s focus on fluid and subtle movement reflects her background in dance.Both are 500-hour Yoga Alliance Certified, Ishta Senior teachers, and are part of the Teacher Training program at Ishta Yoga. They currently teach yoga in the NYC area, both privately and in group classes. What inspires their retreats is space- the creation of space to gain perspective, to find balance, and to reconnect with the joy and beauty of moving through life.
