About the Retreat
Join Gustavo for a one of a kind retreat in the Mexican Riviera. Surround yourself with breathtaking views from the ocean and some of the most fascinating sacred ruins in the world.
Come discover what it means to find your happy.
Expect an empowering and vigorous 60-minute Power Vinyasa class every morning to help you sweat the small stuff and get clear on what makes you shine, spark and become more alive. We will have plenty of time to embark on journeys to the Mayan ruins, sacred cenotes and the fascinating beauty of Mayan culture. Soak up the sun by the ocean and explore. An afternoon of Slow Flow will be the thing to come back to just before dinner to help you settle.
Come with an open mind, be ready to sweat and have fun. #wherewillyogatakeyou? to #findyohappy, of course!
