New Year Retreat

Dec. 30 – Jan 5

Our New Year Retreat at the exotic Xinalani Eco-Resort is the perfect place to set your intentions for 2019. Begin your year in vibrant health, rejuvenation, yoga and fitness, with up to 4 yoga, fitness and wellness classes daily — on a private luxurious beach in Mexico! Take in the sun and sea, with surfing, horseback riding, paddle boards and kayaks amidst a gathering of multicultural, like-minded yogis. Relaxation, gratitude and inspiration await!

Flow of the Day


Wake to the rhythmic sound of waves and intricate chorus of tropical birds, and enjoy a cup of tea while overlooking the ocean. Stroll the beach or take a morning swim before heading up to the Jungle Studio for a morning of body, mind and soul replenishing. Join one or both back-to-back yoga classes: Gentle Flow Yoga with Nina Butler and Fitness with personal trainer Lisa Nielsen.


Free time to enjoy the sunshine and waves! Head out for sea kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, surfing or horseback riding. Trek into the forest to a hidden waterfall, take a Mexican cooking class or journey inward with a shaman-led temezcal, followed by a healing massage in the ocean-side spa. A delicious buffet lunch is served from 1:30 to 2:30, followed by plenty of time for a hammock siesta!


At sunset, reconvene for a Smart Abs class with Lisa, followed by a Vinyasa + Yin Yoga class with Nina. Following our sunset session is dinner on Xinalani’s ocean-view terrace — a three-course gourmet meal featuring inspired and traditional Mexican recipes, designed for the healthy lifestyle of a yogi. After dinner take a moonlit stroll on the beach, gather with friends around a bonfire or even try your feet at salsa.
