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.

Dance and Yoga retreat – Holbox , Mexico — 20 Comments

  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.

  2. I just found this site and your retreat offering, it sounds perfect! Looks like I may have found it a bit too late? If you aren’t full, I’d still be interested. If not now, will you be doing another?
