The idyllic island of Holbox (pronounced hol-bosh) is just a few hours from Cancun international airport via road and ferry. Famous for it’s spectacular sunsets, glistening emerald seas and laid back, fishing village vibe, Holbox is also part of the Yum-Balam nature reserve which is home to a vast array of plant and animal life.


The retreat takes place at a beach-front property, Villas Flamingos. A large pool, two restaurants, spacious yoga studio with spectacular sea views, elegant, air-conditioned rooms, spa, friendly staff and ‘those famous hammocks’ make this a world-class destination to relax, connect with nature and unwind.

The atmosphere of Holbox is muy tranquilo – there are no paved roads and very few vehicles on the island – which makes it the perfect place to unplug from the pressures and distractions of every day life.

Holbox Bliss

Holbox offers an opportunity to immerse yourself the elements of nature. The sunsets, the stars, the moon, the sea and the birds reminds us that we are connected to a power greater than us. Experiencing this connection reminds us what is important and allows us to come into balance – body, mind and soul.

  1. Hola Sarah
    I’m still very interested in attending your retreat and I have two questions for you. One of my two friends that wants to come with is a male. Is that a possibility?
    And how many people are coming so far? Is there still time to register for us?

    Secondly we have two very very cute well trained under eight pounds service dogs, that would also like to attend with us. Is that possible?

    I’m reaLly glad the teacher trained in NY at golden bridge. As you know I am a certified teacher as well but I trained in LA with Harijiwan.

    Looking forward to meeting you and hearing back from you.
