Yoga De Los Muertos
San Pancho, Nayarit, Mexico
October 29-November 3, 2019
"Feet, what do I need you for when I have wings to fly?" - Frida Kahlo
A unique and immersive experience where students will feed their souls through movement, adventure, and Mexican culture.
We will seek to honor the sacred cycles of life and death through the eyes of Mexican history and culture. Dia de los Muertos is a multi-day celebration of these very cycles and where we have the chance to honor both those who have passed as well as thank and then relinquish the parts of ourselves we wish to see perished. Our retreat focuses on the shadow work and the light that emerges from it.
6 days/5 nights stay in an exclusive & luxurious retreat center close to San Pancho playa
Morning yoga & meditation with Lauren Autenrieth, E-Ryt500 and Zoe Freedman, Ryt200

The Retreat center, Lodgings and logistics
This is the perfect destination for those who seek privacy, serenity, fun and adventure. Located just 1 hour from Puerto Vallarta airport and just a short stroll to the warm waters of the Southern Pacific Ocean. Our casitas are 30 yards from the unspoiled white sand beaches of San Francisco (San Pancho), Nayarit, in the very center of the village, a stones throw away from the main street.
Each casita has 2 Queen bedrooms, one bathroom and a fully equipped kitchen. It is located in the lush tropical garden steps from the pool, with its lounge chairs, hammocks & a bbq area. We offer free wifi, drinking water, fresh bath & beach towels.
yoga & Meditation
Join Zoe and Lauren for yoga both on and off the mat. Come prepared for lots of movement and a ton of soul work. We will dive deep into the shadow self and discover what it means to let go and how we can release old patterns and habits. Ditch negative self-talk and step into a flow of grace in the realization that change is the only constant. Don’t forget your journal, we will offer journaling prompts throughout the week to help guide you towards the answers within.
Mexican coastal cuisine is light, fresh and typically involves tons of fresh fruits and veggies and also locally caught fish. Ceviche, avocado, mango, pineapple and of course, handmade tortillas are all staples to the local fare. Be prepared to eat healthy and well. Melas can be made to almost any dietary preference (vegan, GF, dairy free, vegetarian etc).
