Join Cindy and Neda for a beautiful week of yoga, massage, and relaxation with their Beach-N-Bliss Yoga and Massage Retreat! Cindy’s yoga and Neda’s massage will blend together a mix that will leave you feeling renewed and revitalized!
Nestled between a white-sand beach and the mountains, on a 10-acre property only accessible by boat, resides the eco-chic retreat center called Xinalani. It’s a one-of-a-kind Retreat Center bringing together the best yoga facilities, beautiful eco-chic accommodations, delicious healthy food and supporting staff to make your dream retreat come true, all set on a wide pristine beach and a jungle of breathtaking natural beauty. This retreat will leave you feeling rejuvenated and refreshed!
Each day will begin with an awakening hatha yoga practice. You can spend your late morning and afternoon basking on the beach, surfing, learning to stand-up paddle board, getting a massage from Neda, taking a hike or anything else your heart desires. Your vacation includes an excursion to swim with wild dolphins and a group trip into Puerto Vallarta to shop and explore. Ultimately this is your retreat and you can make it as adventurous or as relaxed as you want – all classes and excursions are optional. Each day will wrap up with a second practice that will be more focused on relaxation and meditation. We will then gather for dinner, drinks and a lifetime of memories! Bring your spouse, family, and/or friends for a week of Beach-N-Bliss!

About the Teachers
Twelve years ago, I suffered a back injury hurtling me to the vital realization that I needed to start loving and caring for my body. At that time I was nearly 300lbs, unhealthy and lethargic. Eager for change, I began moving more and nourishing my body with wholesome, real foods. Since that pivotal moment I have lost OVER 125lbs…and have kept it off for over 10 years!
Not only did my life dramatically change when I lost the weight, so did my career. Over these past ten years, I have been blessed to be able to teach, inspire, and evoke my passion for yoga, health, and wellness to countless people.
My classes encourage students to engage fully at their level, listen to their bodies, and grow in their practice by challenging themselves to explore their boundaries. I offer detailed alignment instructions that allow students to increase flexibility, strength, and re-discover the poses.
I’ve been a Nationally Certified and Licensed Massage Therapist since 2002 from the Baltimore School of Massage in Maryland. I also have a Bachelors in Exercise Science from the University of Missouri Kansas City and an Associates in Business Administration from Longview Community College.
I have taught Massage and Bodywork Therapies and Managed a Student Massage Clinic for 3 years. I greatly enjoyed instructing students on bodywork modalities, and I truly believe it made me a more well- rounded professional therapist in my practice.
My passion is helping my clients achieve personal greatness through the healing arts of therapeutic bodywork, exercise/fitness, healthy lifestyle and nutrition habits. I enjoy learning how to enhance my skills in complimentary alternative medicine to benefit my clients’ needs in a holistic and natural way.
