February is the perfect time to escape the monotony of winter! Join Dede Fuentes for a Retreat from Extremes at Xinalani. Slow down, rest, and rejuvenate during a blissful week in Mexico.

The daily bombardment of extreme messages: good/bad, black/white, left/right, all/nothing— leads us to a climate of unease and polarization. Living within these rigid societal extremes makes it difficult to maintain a sense of stability and centeredness. Returning to a softer, more pliable state is essential to the cultivation of a healthy, rooted yoga practice.

During our week at Xinalani, we will move within the boundaries of extremes to gain a better understanding of our individual, black/white thought patterns. It is within this framework of “practicing grey” that a spacious, supportive, foundation will arise. After seven days of consistent moderation practice, you’ll return home with the ability to recognize when your thoughts/patterns are migrating to the extreme. More importantly, you’ll have the skill set to mindfully reassess, readjust and settle back into a more balanced, supportive space.

Here's what a typical day might look like:

7:45am-9am Buffet breakfast
9:30-11am Vinyasa Flow Class
11am-5pm Lunch and Free time - standup paddle boarding, surfing, kayaking, zip-lining, take a walk on the beach, meditate in the gardens, relax by the pool, or treat yourself to a massage at Xinalani spa
5:30-7pm Evening group session: guided meditation, journaling, freedom style practice, gentle yoga; additional activities to be determined.
7:30pm - onward Dinner & Sunset

Everything on the suggested itinerary is optional, including all class sessions. This is your retreat experience and you are encouraged to choose your activities based on what feels right for you!

"All I wanted to do is 'get away' and what really happened is I 'came back' to myself. Going to Costa Rica with Bloom let me reset myself in ways that I can never do in my busy life. Everything about this trip was perfect! The daily activities (or non activities if you choose), the people, the scenery, the food, everything was much more than I expected."
