As a land of sacred waters, the history of healing in Akumal runs deep.

It is our honor to meet you there for a holistic yoga adventure immersed in Akumal’s natural beauty, traditional rituals and ceremonies,  sacred healing waters, artful and healthy cuisine and more!

Our retreat also coincides nicely with the traditional Mexican celebration of the Day of the Dead, or Día de los Muertos. Unfolding over two days, this celebration, contrary to what many people believe is not just about death – it’s about joy, celebration, and connecting to our own ancestral heritage and learning how it can support us. During our time there, we will strive to understand and appreciate the depth and beauty of the Day of the Dead, with one of our main themes being: eliminating the veil that separates us from our ancestral heritage which continually supports us in our human walk.

Highlights:

  • 5 nights pristine jungle accommodation
  • 2 organic, vegetarian, pescatarian meals per day
  • 2 Private cenotes
  • Daily meditation
  • Daily Movement – Yoga
  • Kirtan – music and chanting
  • Mayan Temazcal ceremony with native Shaman
  • Day of the Dead celebration experience
  • Traditional spiritual medicine ceremony with world renowned Shaman
  • Snorkeling
  • Explore Tulum ruins
  • Airport transfers (Fly into Cancun International Airport)

We’ve curated a powerful 6 day, 5 night retreat experience that invites you to connect with your empowered truth and personal art of living.

So naturally, we’ll be staying at a serene jungle location just minutes from the beaches of Akumal and Tulum with our own private cenotes (pristine underground river system) that will provide us with a blissful setting for self-care and cultivation of inspired living.Explore the magical, mystical universe of the self and how we relate to the universe and everyone in it. Learn how to raise your vibrational frequency to manifest the life of your dreams. Expand your understanding and performance of your brain. Learn how to transform subconscious belief patterns and co-create the YOU of your dreams.

Be a part of a community who lives limitless, never stops exploring and lives well. Live fully. Embracing your full potential to live optimally, naturally, NOW. Relax and open to receive; grateful receptivity, my new feeling!

We are energetic beings. Powerful, creative energetic beings enjoying the human experience. The human condition comes with illusion. Maya means illusion. What better place to unveil the cycle of death and rebirth?

The Program

We immerse ourselves in nature and commune with the elements to discover or deepen our relationship with our inner beings. Working with the elements through transformational yoga, meditation and powerful ceremonies we blast through subconscious blocks to living our full potential. This retreat will help you process your emotions and live in harmony and unison with your own spirit.

We explore the sacred waters from the cenotes to the lagoon to the sea. Water is a gateway to the subconscious and your true power and essence. This retreat is designed to leave behind the demands of everyday life. Find your bliss with crystal clear waters, sandy beaches, exquisite wildlife, wholesome meals, daily meditation, movement and ceremony. Learn to live ritually.

Instructor

Tami Gingrow has been studying and practicing holistic health and wellness all her life. Tami has been practicing yoga since 1996 and teaching yoga since 2010. Her own style, transformational yoga, has evolved through years of practicing the foundational yoga styles of Iyengar and Anusara, balancing her energy centers with a kundalini practice, through shamanic journeying, Egyptian Shamanism, immersing herself in nature and cultivating a daily meditation practice. Holistic health means integrating body, mind and spirit. Tami believes fueling the body through nutrition is an individualized science.  Being in tune with nature and her cycles is the key to a balanced life.
