Back from a week-long yoga retreat in the magical, incomparable Xinalani Resort in Mexico. We rocked the yoga house, hiked, surfed, whale-watched, zip-lined, spa treatmented, had night dance parties and bonded with ourselves and our surroundings. Thank you Jean-Baptiste for creating this paradise, to Jen Pastiloff for sharing the love and fun, and to all the incredible staff at Xinalani for indulging us so completely. And, most of all, thank you to the lovely, powerful and hilarious women who accompanied me - I love you gals!!! February 2013 :-)

Alysha Greig: "It is without a doubt one of the most unique place I have ever slept in"
"It is without a doubt one of the most unique place I have ever slept in. It reminds me exactly of the bungalow I stayed at with Reid in Thailand on the Phi Phi Islands – except there is no wall leading out to the porch. Yes. No wall. The room is wide open to nature and the sounds of the ocean. I love it."

Dara McKinley: " It inspires awe at every turn "
They call the Xinalani Retreat Center "Inspiration Universe" and this is so true. It inspires awe at every turn. Sleeping, eating and dancing in the tree tops, with the ocean calling below, it was perfect in every way. The food was health infusing and delicious. The ocean was pristine and spirited. The accommodations were hip, comfortable and spacious. The mountainous jungle was wild and lush. The movement studio was my dream space. The boat ride was adventurous and divinely scenic. The massage was sacred and healing. The sun loved me up. The butterflies visited often and gave me kisses. There were ridiculous amounts of beauty everywhere I looked. The peace and pleasure were undeniable. I could go on and on. Xinalani nailed it. When I was on the beach, soaking up the elements, it felt like a pitcher of goodness was being poured into my body. Heaven. On. Earth.
Dara McKinley, Nia Yoga Teacher, Seattle, Washington

Brenda Medina: "Living Xinalani Retreat is one of the greatest experiences I have ever had. Xinalani is everything I have dreamed for"
Living Xinalani Retreat is one of the greatest experiences I have ever had. Xinalani is everything I have dreamed for: a magic place in the Pacific Ocean, surrounded by a lush vegetation and amazing sunsets. Here I was able to hear the intense voice of the sea, witness the first rain of the rain season, admire the crabs, practice yoga daily and be cared by a profesional spa therapist. The suites are really comfortable and private, but at the same time they are open to nature. The food is "without words".. just amazing!! The staff and service are incredible. The Xinalani Team makes your experience unforgettable. I definitly want to come back! // Vivir una semana en Xinalani Retreat ha sido una de las mejores experiencias que he tenido. Xinalani es todo lo que pude haber soñado: un lugar mágico frente al Océano Pacífico rodeado de vegetación y con atardeceres espectaculares- Aquí pude escuchar el intenso sonido del mar, presenciar la primera lluvia del año, admirar el show de los cangrejos alrededor, practicar Yoga diariamente y ser consentida por un masajista profesional. Las habitaciones son muy cómodas y privadas y al mismo tiempo abiertas y en contacto con la naturaleza. La cocina "sin palabras"... es exquisita! La atención del Staff es increíble. Quienes forman parte de Xinalani hacen que este lugar sea inolvidable para quién lo visita. Definitivamente quiero regresar!
