A retreat will always be more than a “retreat” with me. Of course, you’ll spend some blissful time away from your regular day-to-day practicing yoga, getting in workouts, and soaking in sunshine, but you’ll also collect tools to bring the elements of the retreat home with you: grounding, presence, and connection to yourself.
In March 2020, we went on a yoga and fitness-filled adventure to Tulum, Mexico for what I like to call an immersion, rather than a retreat. We experienced sound healing, guided meditation through an ancient cenoté, learned about where we were staying from local biodiversity experts and activists, and ate incredible home-cooked food from the chef at our villa each day.
When I think of Maggie's retreat, I am amazed at her ability to balance everything from personalities to programming. From finding the line between power + recovery, activities + rest, community building + individual time, I felt like the trip was thoughtfully designed to maximize the experience for all the guests.
I appreciated the chance to immerse ourselves in both Tulum's nature and our yoga practice. It was truly a rejuvenating 5 days and I came back feeling better than ever.
