A Day in Your Yoga Retreat
We will begin Day 1 of the retreat with a Meet & Greet to set a powerful intention to prepare you for the transformative experience you are embarking on. Day 2 and there on, Wake up with tea or coffee, sit quietly or connect with your fellow yogis, or hang out in a hammock listening to the morning sea and catching a glimpse of the sunrise. Following morning Tea/Coffee we will partake in Yoga Session 1. Cornelius will lead you through an invigorating gentle flow that will wake and align your body and mind with your inner best for the day. Morning practice will be followed by meditational "word" for the day, followed by journal reflecting, and then a Yoga/Fitness based workshop (yoga/fitness workshops will vary each day).
We release for breakfast after our morning session. So, enjoy a healthy breakfast and free time for whatever your heart desires. There are plenty onsite and offsite activities and adventures to be enjoyed making each day an exceptionally unique experience. One of our favorite’s: Jungle Trek to the nearby waterfalls. Experience the local land of Quimixto as you make your way to a refreshing & breathtaking waterfall.
Lunch will be healthy and planned to your needs with healthy gourmet vegetarian and non-vegetarian foods inspired by delicious traditional Mexican recipes.
After lunch chose to spend your time relaxing in your personal hammock, receiving a massage, enjoying one of the many optional eco adventure excursions or on the beach connecting with like-minded fellow yogis. Enjoy an optional afternoon Jungle hike to Las Animais beach town. Swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, beach walks are always available at your leisure on Xinalani’ s private beach or take a very short walk to Quimixto’s beach where you can chill with the locals.
Yoga session 2 will start in the earlier evening, a few hours before dinner and will be held for at least 1 hour at the Aerial Studio or the Jungle Studio. The Aerial studio is a majestic all-purpose yoga studio designed without handrails, all open air, wooden floors, palapa roof, and stunning ocean views. The Jungle Studio is a magnificent palm-thatched roofed temple situated on a hilltop with dramatic ocean views. The Jungle Studio is Xinalani’ s most awe-inspiring yoga studio. Dinner will be served at 7:30PM and feel free, after dinner, to unwind in our Lounge/Bar in the heart of Xinalani, down the mountain and near the beach. It’s the perfect place to enjoy music and meet new people, or simply relax and watch the world go by or the birds fish.
