About the Retreat
Join Tarra and Brittany for 6 days/5 nights of yoga, sun, relaxation and adventure in Puerto Morelos, MEXICO! We will offer 1-2 yoga classes a day, 3 group dinners and daily brunch prepared by our own private chef, and optional excursions to choose from. As you escape from the cold winter weather, this retreat will allow you to press pause on your daily life, and enjoy a fun vacation with a mindful twist as you relax and reset. Yoga classes will be focused on Hot Yoga Vinyasa Flow and Yin/Deep Stretch with additional workshops and meditation on select days (classes will cater to all levels).
Begin the day with an energizing yoga practice followed by a healthy wholesome brunch on our rooftop terrace. Then spend the majority of the day relaxing the Mexico beaches with your favorite frozen cocktail, snorkeling the second largest coral reef in the world, exploring the Tulum Ruins or Cenotes, or just reading a great book on the hammocks by the pool at Casa Om. Unwind with a Deep Stretch class before family dinner and the rest of the night is yours to spend how you choose.

About the Teachers
Tarra first fell in love with yoga during college and her love for the practice has evolved in so many ways over the past 8 years. She was attracted to hot yoga for the detoxifying sweat release and the physical challenges as well as the opportunity to slow down, be present and enjoy the flow rather than trying to have it all figured out (on and off the mat). As an athlete and a runner, yoga helped alleviate her chronic back pain, while increasing her range of motion through strength and flexibility. Tarra enjoys teaching for the ability to share her passion for yoga with others, and hopes to inspire her students in ways that so many teachers have done for her.
She completed her 200 RYT Training with Grace Morales in Charlotte, NC during 2015 and has since completed additional intensives with Irene Pappas, Daniel Rama, Patrick Beach, Steph Gongora, Erin Kelly, Carson Clay Calhoun, Adam Whiting, Jaimis Huff Flynn & Jennifer Busco. Tarra attended her most recent training at Casa Om in October 2017 and fell in love with the space so much so that she was inspired to lead her own retreat here. She currently teaches weekly Hot Power Vinyasa classes at Charlotte Yoga in North Carolina and at local breweries around town. Check her out on IG @QCyogi.foodie for her upcoming classes.
Brittany discovered yoga after graduating college in 2012. At first, she was looking for a way to continue to build the strength and flexibility that she had always had from being a dancer her entire life – but yoga quickly became more of a life practice for her when she realized the mental benefits of it as well. After practicing herself for almost 5 years, Brittany decided to pursue teacher training when she relocated from Buffalo, NY to Charlotte, NC. Being a part of the yoga community in Charlotte was one of the main things that made her feel at home in her new city and she wanted to bring that sense of community and connection to other people through teaching.
Brittany completed her 200 RYT in May 2016 under the teachings of Jaimis Huff and Jennifer Busco, as well as completing her Deep Stretch certification in December 2017 with Ashley Masters. She has since completed additional workshops and trainings with Patrick Beach, Carson Clay Calhoun, Kerri Verna, Adam Whiting, and others. Brittany currently teaches Hot Vinyasa and Deep Stretch classes at Charlotte Yoga and NC Yoga Bar.

Optional Excursions (additional fee applies):
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 snuba 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 5min stroll to reach the operator. This natural oasis is literally steps from our retreat center.
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.
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.
Casa Om Spa
Whether you’re looking for an amazing massage or energy work, The Travel Yogi team can tell you first hand how amazing the team at Casa Om is. Please be prepared to book early to secure a spot. Once the word gets out from the first few massages, they’ll book up quickly!
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.
