MisfitStudio Retreat

MisfitStudio Retreat

From November 03 to 10, 2018

This November, we’ll be escaping to MEXICO to indulge in a week of movement, tranquility and soulful conversation. We are THRILLED to be bringing the MISFITMETHOD to the Xinalani Retreat Center – a serene escape that boasts comfort, majestic views, and an opportunity to rest and reset. Surrounded by lush jungle and beaches, it’s a true sanctuary for self-discovery. Experience a physical and spiritual shift by letting go of to-dos, meetings, and the daily stressors of life to indulge in mindful movement, reflection, connection with yourself and others, and some true self-care. Lindsey and Amber will lead us through two movement classes a day, untangling in the fresh ocean air, surrounded by palm trees, and the sweet smells and sounds of nature. Each day will offer the opportunity to relax by the beach, unwind with some hammock time, optional excursions and an opportunity to connect on a deeper level with oneself through meditation and ritual. Delicious, fresh Mexican fare will be served daily, nourishing you with local ingredients made with love. Eco-lodges are nestled within the jungle, designed and built by local artisans with comfort and tranquility in mind. All accommodation options boast a private terrace, hammock, hot water, luxury linens, beautiful mosquito netting, a private washroom (and open-air shower), and jungle or ocean views.

About the teacher

Amber Joliat

Amber’s unique approach to movement encourages a deep untangling allowing the mind, body and soul to open from the inside. Dancelike sequences set to music drive in elements of connection, shift and physical/emotional release, intentional therapeutic vibration. Calling in strength and grace with creativity and magic, during class you will be guided to unravel, explore sensation and dance with freedom.
Movement as Meditation: With the love and support of Toronto, MISFITSTUDIO now has to two beautiful studios, an expansive growth of community, budding teachers thriving in the MISFITMETHOD 200 hour movement program created by Amber. A teacher training that not only explains her method of movement, but gives space for each participant to explore what it means to
BE MOVED both physically and spiritually. A Lover of beauty, Amber believes we are all artists and
inspires everyone to discover their own light.

Lindsay Kinzinger

Lindsay is an advocate for fitness, not only for the physical benefits it provides us but for the mental ones too. She strongly believes in how movement of the body is essential for good quality of life and will openly discuss how it has personally had an effect on hers. Lindsay discovered Pilates 8 years ago after trying a little bit of everything, from running, Muay Thai, boot camps, Yoga and weight training, but never really focusing on any one activity. It wasn’t until she came across Pilates that she really found her passion in movement, it was the mental focus and combination of strength, balance and control that Pilates requires that really grabbed her. She began her journey into the fitness world by enrolling into Humber Colleges Fitness and Health Promotion program and after spending the year studying anatomy, physiology, biomechanics and fitness prescription, she then turned her attention towards gaining her Pilates Mat certification through Body Harmonics. Lindsay is certified in both Pilates Mat and Pilates Reformer and is continuing her education with The MISFITMETHOD teacher training program. After that her goal is to obtain a specialized certification in Anatomy and Biomechanics and as many more certifications as she can get her hands on because “our learning never ends!”. In her classes you’ll find a combination of precision and intensity, she loves the creative side of combining music with movement and loves to make things playful where she can.
