Romance and Adventure Yoga Wellness Retreat
with Morgan & Ron Cecil
Romance and Adventure is about falling in love again with the beauty and wonder of life. This Romance and Adventure Yoga Wellness Retreat is for couples and singles, for devoted yogis as well as for those who just want to enjoy the deep relaxation of a private beach in the coastal jungles of Puerto Vallarta Mexico.
Love and freedom reawaken in our soul first, and then expand out into every area of our life. During this retreat you will reconnect with the healing power of the present moment and unlock the feeling and experience of love and freedom in your body and mind as well as your soul. Your relationship with the Spirit and your own heart will be forever changed on this Xinalani Romance & Adventure and Yoga Retreat, leaving with more gratitude for your life, passion and excitement for your future, and love for your most significant relationships.
Fall in love and dream again as you restore and renew your mind, body, heart and soul. Let the Spirit breathe new life in you and reawaken romance and adventure and gratitude for your life.
Beauty. Presence. Shared Experience.
We come to slow down, renew our faith, receive and abide in love.
In our yoga practice will dive deeper on our mats every morning with a breath-centered, Spirit-lead vinyasa practice and end with a short but deep time for contemplative prayer. The afternoons will be open for you to swim, snorkel, surf, hike, nap in a hammock, listen to the sounds of the jungle and hear new thoughts from God. At the end the day before dinner, we will meet for a restorative practice and meditation that soothes and heals the soul, massages and cares for the body from the inside out, and breathes new life into our heart and spirit. In the evening we will come together to share a delicious meal and converse about what it looks like to create a life of true romance and meaningful adventure.

Ron Cecil was born in a small town in rural New Mexico, destined to become a cowboy or a preacher. He fell in love with God and rock climbing, seeing the world, and smoking cigarettes in secret. He also fell in love with a girl who he eventually married. When his young marriage ended in a divorce he feared he was to follow in his mother and father’s footsteps, who were married 13 times between them. God began a new thing in Ron’s heart and in his life. Ron fell in love again, this time with a single mom and her son. He married this woman in 2009 and adopted her son in 2010.
Ron, or “Rocco” as his wife likes to call him, is a devoted husband, dad, rock-climber, writer, and businessman. He has traded all his bad habits for one motorcycle. His wife loves the wild cowboy in him as well as the soft-hearted preacher. He makes her the best green chili breakfast burritos the world has ever known and she adores the man he is to her, the dad he is to their kids, and the brave friend he is for others.
Ron is gifted at telling stories, drawing out stories in others, and making people feel like they are the most interesting person in the room. He is a man’s man (who can talk cars for hours), his wife’s best friend (who can also talk feelings for hours), and a man after God’s own heart (who hungers for time with Jesus like a son does his dad). His wife thinks that RonCecil was born to show others how to love well, because he loves her very well and she knows that is no easy feat. He always gives her the bigger piece of communion bread as if to say “I want you well fed” and this makes her feel very loved. She also thinks he looks very handsome in jeans and cowboy boots, so if he would still like to be cowboy that is alright with her.
