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,
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!
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!
Prices vary upon accommodation, inquire for more details. Cost includes room accommodation, yoga classes, pre-yoga juices and snacks, after yoga brunch, and dinner daily*. Options for gluten-free, vegan, and vegetarian diets will be available.
