Radiant Sol for your Soul Eco Retreat

From March 09 to 16, 2019

Looking to recharge, unwind and reconnect with yourself and nature?  We offer you the vision of an exclusive, tropical unspoiled beachfront property nestled between lush jungle and emerald ocean, twice daily yoga practices, nourishing gourmet Mexican cuisine, open-air palm thatched-roofed casitas, oceanfront spa & restaurant, lounge bar, sand terrace and the offering of a Temazcal (an ancient Shamanic sweat lodge ritual).  All of this a vision of a sanctuary for your soul. Please join us for this 7-night escape to Xinalani Retreat; one of the most sought-after yoga retreats in ALL of Mexico! Located in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico it is a short 12 miles south of Puerto Vallarta International Airport!

We will offer two yoga practices per day (optional, of course) in an open-air studio overlooking the ocean.  These classes will follow a natural rhythm of self-discovery and progression throughout the retreat and will include a daily uplifting vinyasa practice with an energetically complimentary and unique blend of yin, pranayama, chanting and meditation leaving you feeling renewed, refreshed and empowered by week’s end.   

Expect to have ample time to choose from an array of on-site or off-site activities or simply to relax.  Optional adventure activities include surfing (right at the property!) as well as stand up paddle board lessons, kayaking, snorkeling, scuba diving, salsa dance lessons, etc.  All are available at an additional cost. Each gives an opportunity to leave the ordinary, get out of the comfort zone, let loose and have some fun!

Set an intention if you wish and make this very relaxing and inspiring week your own magical experience.  The first and last days are reserved for travel.  For boat transportation purposes, please book an arrival flight that lands no later than 4:30 pm and a departure flight that takes off no earlier than 11:00 am.  Whether you are newly to the yoga path or an experienced practitioner, this retreat is for YOU.

About the teacher

Radiant Sol for your Soul Eco Retreat

Bethany McCorkle

RYT-200, E-RYT 500

I have been a student of yoga since 2004 – teaching since 2011. My 200-hr teacher training was completed with Jacqui Bonwell in 2011 and in June 2015, I completed an advanced 500-hr training with Ame Wren and Kevin Courtney through Boston Yoga School.    I continue to study yoga regularly with many gifted mentors along the Northeast Coast aiming to blend the best of the Vinyasa, Power Yoga, Ashtanga and Iyengar systems into an eclectic flow practice.    I am known to deliver a strong, balanced and accessible approach to the yoga practice enriched with specific but supportive functional alignment.  My mission is to encourage students towards developing a sustainable practice that enables good posture, perspective, insight and well-being.

Cathleen Wasielewski

RYT-200, E-RYT 500, YACEP

Formal yoga training began in early 2011 and through a magnificent evolution has brought me on a journey of gratitude.  I have been so blessed to study with such teachers as Shiva Rea, Roberto Lim, Seane Corn, Todd Norian, Anodea Judith, Josh Summers, Bernie Clark, Francesca McCartney and Johanna Bell as well as so many more.  Each has given me a light of perspective on the value of what it means to be a Spirit on this human journey. 

My teachings have evolved through a steady growth of both Vinyasa and Yin Yoga – first with a masculine and disciplined approach to the access of Self through body awareness and now to dancing with the Shakti feminine elements that so serve the wholeness of the new culture we are growing with.  The union of the two is Yoga and life in its fullest sense.  It is a guide and reflection of our evolution and for our evolution. 

I have been teaching in a variety of venues and yoga studios in the greater Portland area since 2011.  The summer of 2016 brought me to a beautiful location in Vancouver, BC Canada to host my first yoga retreat.  It is one of my favorite environments for teaching as the immersion into yoga for the student held in loving space is evolutionary.  The awareness that I might hold the space for the growing heart of another in practice has allowed me to know that the greatest purpose one can have in this incarnation is connection and oneness.  Love is the guiding principle.  

The sphere of yoga is immeasurably infinite.  It is my belief that each person penetrates the sphere with the practice that resonates most sweetly with their own experiences of who they are.  This entry point may be through asana practice, meditation, or the breath noticed in the daily challenges of living.  We find our yoga in daily conversations, the ability to ground ourselves in the midst of struggle amongst our human family and in the many moments of strengths that surprise us.  The recognition of the yoga as union (yoking) of all things is the practice of awakening that we are here for.

A Day In Your Yoga Retreat

While a more detailed schedule will be sent closer to the retreat date, we will begin the retreat with a powerful intention setting circle to prepare you for the transformative experience you are embarking on.  Rise and Shine and enjoy a quiet morning to yourself with yourself. Wake up with tea or coffee and sit quietly to journal or hang out in a hammock listening to the waves and watching the sunrise. Bethany will lead you through a morning invigorating vinyasa flow practice class that will drop you into your own personal space for the day.  Enjoy a nourishing breakfast followed by free time for whatever your heart desires. Each day will be a different experience. Lunch will be healthy and planned to set you up for our evening practice, led by Cathy, that will be an energetically complimentary uniquely blended practice of Yin, chanting, pranayama and meditation. Enjoy a lovely group gathering and dinner with laughs and great chats with your new friends.  There will be ample time for questions and experimenting with essential oils, including an optional personal essential oil consultation. Leisure time will be abundant. Choose to spend your time relaxing in your personal hammock, receiving a massage, enjoying one of the many optional eco adventure excursions or on the beach connecting with like-minded fellow yogis. Enjoy optional afternoon hiking to a beach town and to nearby waterfalls.  Swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, beachcombing, R&R are always available at your leisure on Xinalani’s private beach.
