Imagine devouring juicy tropical fruits as you emerge from the metamorphic cocoon of a hot primal Mayan sweat lodge ceremony.

You walk a few steps and submerge your body in a cool jungle spring, shedding your old self.

In the warm night air, fireflies are floating between the trees, and as you close your eyes you can hear the peaceful sounds of crickets, frogs and other jungle animals. You encounter yourself..and life..on a whole new level. It feels like you are on another planet, and your spirit is elevated.

Over the next few days you let go of the past and the future, immerse yourself in the moment and feel an excitement for life that vitalizes you. You are encouraged and supported, and you feel the power of your soul’s purpose becoming more clear. Peel back more layers and discover your true self in a session with a local shaman, unwind with gentle yoga, learn breathwork and meditation tools, explore ancient Mayan ruins, swim in crystal blue cenotes (caves), plunge off a zip-line into refreshing water, dance your buns off, grab a green juice on the way to the market, shop local artisans, and create new life-long friendships.

“Wouldn’t it feel amazing to truly embody your gifts and your purpose?”

Yes, it would, and that’s what you can expect during our time together. Through nurturing life-affirming classes and ceremonies you will be able to gain clarity on your soul’s purpose, and your reason for being here. When people are on fire with their soul’s purpose they blaze a path for all who are near them. They are an inspiration, and life is easier and more fulfilling. When you upgrade to a new version of yourself at this retreat, you will emerge ready for your next endeavor with clear vision.

“What would it feel like to have the tools you need
to navigate life’s ups and downs?”

Many of us are stressed-out overthinkers who live with chronic pain. If you’re armed with the right self-help tools, you can stop letting your thoughts run the show and free yourself of stress, pain and tension. Dr. Anya teaches tools such as Emotional Freedom Technique, self-love exercises, breathwork, meditation, journaling your intentions, using food and herbs as medicine and other holistic life hacks so you feel confident navigating whatever life throws at you.

The Location...

puerto morelos sign

Puerto Morelos is a safe, peaceful, elegant, sea-side village in the Mexican Caribbean. Turquoise waters, impeccable white sand beaches, tropical jungles, Mayan archeological sites, underground rivers, lagoons, lush landscapes, cenotes, and Mayan culture and history set the scene for an unforgettable experience. This village is also home to one of the largest coral reefs in the world, so snorkeling is definitely an option!

The Venue and Accommodations...

Casa Om is a 4-story luxury boutique yoga retreat center built with love. It is located 16 miles south of the Cancun International Airport. As you enter the carved wooden doors, you feel the serenity of the space. The property is a 1 minute and 30 second walk from the beach, and features 11 bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, a pool, a fish and turtle pond, 3 kitchens, a 1000 square foot yoga room, and an open-air rooftop dining area. There is also a deck on the beach that will host a couple of our yoga classes. A massage therapist will be on call to pamper you at the resort, as well as other healing sessions. The rooms at Casa Om are beautifully appointed and air-conditioned with filtered water in each room. The retreat center is a mere 10 minute walk to restaurants, a grocery store, a craft market and coffee/fresh juice shops.
