Holistic Health & Yoga Retreat

Mar 31st - Apr 6th, 2019

About the Retreat

A week at Casa Om in Puerto Morelos, Mexico is rejuvenating and life-changing – a dream come true. Step away from the daily grind and immerse yourself in movement, self-care, relaxation, friendship, and adventure! After attending a retreat at Casa Om earlier this year, I fell in love and had a lifechangning experience and knew I had to share this experience with other people. Join an amazing community of people who come together to forge a bond that is unqiue to these types of retreats.

This week is not your typical yoga retreat…begin your day with meditation on the beach; come back for Yayo and his team cook fresh delicious meals each day; eat outside under the thatched roof in the fresh air with views of the ocean; Casa Om does a daily clothes washing for you so you can pack light; the locals in town (just a 5-10 min walk) are so friendly and welcoming filled with vibrant culture, eating, and shopping; sink into a hammock at the end of the day; relax by the pond with the turtles; skip across the street to enjoy an incredible beach bar; take advantage of having a massage with Casa Om’s in-house massuese; after a great yoga class take a dip in the pool;.. and so much more!

Retreat Includes: – Daily Yoga – Guided Meditations – Body Work – Music & Dance – Yucatan Excursion – 10 Chef Prepared Vegetarian Meals by Yayo – Vibrant Culture – Pool – Beach – Informational Talks – Transportation to/from Cancun Airport

About the Teachers

rachel-burackRACHEL BURACKMy story… I can still remember my first yoga class. Having just started high school and still missing the physical demands and mind/body awareness that gymnastics provided – my first downward facing dog was like coming home. I was fortunate to have an amazing yoga teacher right from the start. A teacher who taught me proper alignment, connecting movement with the breath, and finding stillness in the present. I was able to carry this forward with me as I went on into adulthood and as the foundation for my eventual teaching. Over 10 years later I found myself coming home, and applying for my 200-hour Registered Yoga Teacher Training Program with my very first yoga teacher.

In 2013 as a student in the Yoga Alliance RYT, 200-hr Vidya Vinyasa program, I could not have asked for a more enriching experience in the white mountains of NH: Dragonfly Yoga Barn, Studio & Retreat. My 200-hr training was rich, enlightening, and began to manifest much of my purpose and karma here in this life.

In 2018 I came back to education and deepening my spiritual path with Stil Studio’s Fluid 300-hr Fluid Yoga Teacher Training with Kevan Gale and Betty Riaz. My first week immersion into my advanced yoga training experience was in Mexico at Casa Om. I discovered my sangha and knew I had to share this experience with others.

I am passionate about yoga, health, and a holistic approach. I love animals and cherish the happiness they bring to my life. I have a zest for life, the outdoors, achieving my goals, and cherishing friends and family – my sangha. I am dedicated to self-growth and over the last few years achieved a lot from completing my Health Coach Certification to pursuing new career experiences. I provide an intuitive approach towards my students, their bodies, and supporting my sanga through my nutrition education and applications; body work experience; understanding and self-practice of many holistic health modalities; and much more.

I am honored to find myself surrounded by a very supportive yoga community. I’ve met so many phenomenal people along the way that are shaping me, teaching me, and who are also learning from me. I wouldn’t be this far and have gotten here as gracefully without the support of my sangha. Join me in Mexico to discover and be nurtured by your sangha.

Honor the past, be happy in the present, and know the future will always be ahead.

Activites

Optional Excursions (additional fee applies):

Cenotes
The Mexican Riviera is flush with these beautiful underground pools and a trip here isn’t complete without a dip in these refreshing waters. There are multiple cenotes to visit that are much less crowded than those in the Tulum area and only about 30min away by car. Find tranquility below ground or liven you experience with a cenote/zip line combination. Both options are available and booking at least a day in advance is recommended.

Snorkeling & Snuba
The biodiversity on the protect reef in the Mexican Riviera is stunning. Take off for an afternoon when the sun lights up the corals, tropical fish and sponges and search for turtles or reef sharks. Snorkelers can float above it all while scuba divers (no certification needed) can swim down into the tropical traffic. Either option will highlight why this area is protected and turned into a National Marine Park. Yogis can walk to the beach and take a 5 minute stroll to reach the operator. This natural oasis is literally steps from our retreat center.

Scuba
If you’re a diver there’s twice the opportunity here, you can dive in the coral reefs or, for something a little different, take a cavern or cenote dive. Seasonally the more adventurous (crazy?) yogis can also try a bull shark dive…eek! Tons of diving options await the intrepid.

Akumal Sea Turtle Snorkel
The warm Caribbean waters off of the Mexican Riviera boast sea turtle populations year-round. You can outfit with a dive shop to snorkel with these lovelies or head out with your own gear and see if you get lucky.

Coba Ruins
The Mayan ruins at Coba is one of the few sites in the Yucatan that is still relatively unrestored. Many of these ancient buildings are the same as when they were rediscovered in 1890. The beautiful location is less hectic and touristy than other Mayan sites and is certainly worth the day trip.

Playa Del Carmen Take a shopping trip, have a great meal, or just enjoy people watching on a trip to Playa del Carmen. This is a fun tourist spot where you can shop for anything from cheap souvenirs to boutique items.
