Return to Radiance Yoga Retreat

From January 25 to February 01 2020

Escape your usual habitat and immerse yourself in this oceanside paradise in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico! Treat yourself to a week where you can unplug from the to-do’s of everyday life and tune in to the magnificence of your own existence! With accommodations at Xinalani, we’ll be nestled between 10 acres of lush jungle and the pristine and private shores of Banderas Bay where the song of the sea and the sound of the tropics will soothe your soul. The rooms and yoga spaces are covered with palm-thatched roofs accompanied by views of the Pacific Ocean and jungle, surrounding you with the beauty of nature. The average temperatures end of January/beginning of February is a high of 80 degrees and low of 62 degrees at night. This is also their dry season so there are very little bugs and mosquitos (yay)! There is access to two beaches that have lounge chairs and umbrellas for use. The ocean temps are in the low 70s and during this time of year, there are swells good enough for surfing. There is a pool that overlooks the ocean with a beach terrace that is suitable for bonfires at night. Shared or Single occupancy available. Your investment includes yoga, accommodations, food and roundtrip transfer to and from the airport. Expect to awaken each morning with an artful vinyasa inspired practice designed to enliven the body, mind, and soul and integrate the experiences and insights of the day through a yin/restorative practice in the afternoon/evening. Practices will run 90 minutes to 2 hours and will include breath work and meditation. Whether you are seeking adventure or rest, there will be enough free time sprinkled in for you to receive exactly what you need from this retreat. There is an oceanfront spa on the property with a variety of treatment options, including Temazcal, a traditional Mexican sweat lodge, and opportunities for kayaking, snorkeling, diving, zip lining, hiking, swimming with the dolphins and more! Part of the joy of being on retreat is derived from gathering together for meals (and not having to do the dishes)! Nourishment will be provided by three healthy, gourmet, Mexican inspired meals per day, sourced from locally grown produce and freshly caught fish and seafood. Dietary restrictions can be accommodated. Lastly, there are non-stop flights available from Chicago, Seattle, Phoenix, and Los Angeles into Puerto Vallarta. When booking flights, please select an option that arrives in Puerto Vallarta before 4p on Saturday, January 25 and departs after 11a on Saturday, February 1. From Puerto Vallarta airport we’ll have about a 45-minute drive to Boca de Tomatlan where we will depart by boat to Xinalani.

About the teacher

Return to Radiance Yoga Retreat

Gina Marciano

E-RYT 500

Gina grew up as a dancer, so she has always been inspired and captivated by movement. When she attended college she effortlessly gravitated towards yoga in lieu of other forms of
exercise at the student rec center. What she discovered surpassed the physical and she was propelled into a realm of self-inquiry and exploration of the many layers of being which ignited her passion to share this practice with others. Gina’s teaching style encourages
practitioners to embark on a path of inner exploration, infused with light-hearted spirituality rooted in the belief that we are all connected, we’re here to experience joy and it’s a gift to be alive in a body. Her classes are artfully designed with sequences that bring the body into a state of flow, accompanied by beats that set the soul free while offering the power of touch to support increased awareness and new vantage points.

Gina has been teaching for 10 years and is an E-RYT 500. She has lead eight 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training programs in Phoenix, AZ, and Chicago, IL, training over 70 teachers. She created The Madison Improvement Club's 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training program in Phoenix, AZ as well at Shri Yoga Center's program in Highland Park, IL, in addition to co-creating Yeah's Yoga's teacher training program in downtown Chicago. Whether she is teaching public classes or private students, workshops for practitioners or teachers, trainings or retreats, she is honored to share the beauty and magic of the practice with all who want to learn.
