THE GODDESS YOGA RETREAT
Join Tiffany Zoldan for a beach yoga retreat in beautiful Tulum, Mexico in April of 2018. This is a chance to explore the Mayan ruins and jungle landscape of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula on the Caribbean Sea, all while deepening your yoga practice, absorbing a gentle ocean breeze, and setting life-affirming daily intentions.
The mission behind this retreat – to get in touch with, and awaken your inner Goddess and true self while recognizing any barriers within, and releasing / breaking those barriers in order to move on and love yourself. Being a goddess means being pampered and indulging the mind, body and spirit. The embodiment of this retreat to “fill up our cups” whether it’s by eating the scrumptious local food, treating yourself to a massage, skinny dipping in the ocean or enjoying some cocktails, you have permission to INDULGE!
Women are divine beings often spending time comparing themselves to other women instead of elevating one another and working together as a support system. By coming to this retreat we plan on pealing off the layers, letting go of any factors holding us back, and digging deep to unveiling our feminine powers to connect with our tribe.
We strike a balance between solo, reflective time, and social time. Through self-care practices, intelligently sequenced warming flows, (optional) sunrise meditations and walks on the beach, soft afternoon yoga, and powerful daily intentions, we will become the embodiment of love and the bricklayers of a cooperative human future. Expect to rid yourself of negativity through dance and movement, healing rituals and emotional exercises that aid in the transformative process of LETTING GO and AWAKENING THE DIVINE FEMININE WITHIN YOU!
Tulum, Mexico is about an 80 minute drive south of the Cancun Airport. Tulum is perhaps one of the most spiritually abundant little beach towns I’ve ever experienced. You can’t walk down the beach without gazing upon someone meditating, or practicing yoga. The food is healthy and delicious. The Caribbean Sea is warm and healing. People wake up for the sunrise over the ocean and climb towers to see it set over the jungle. The friendly community is off the grid but features comfortable amenities, and many healing services, from massage to clay baths to sweat lodges. Whether you seek to explore the Mayan Ruins and mystical cenotes underground crystal clear water caves, or simply lay in a hammock on the beach with a cocktail, THIS is a week to live in rhythm with nature’s cycles. This video captures the essence of what Tulum offers:
Our private oceanfront villa combines the best of both worlds – privacy, spaciousness and chicness of our own 5 bedroom beach house, and the top quality service of a well-reputed resort. Where else would you have the option to ask for “room service” while staying at a beach house? Especially since ZAMAS Que Fresco restaurant is one of the best in Tulum, with seafood brought in fresh daily right out of the sea.
As soon as you walk through the gates, you will either want to change into your swimming suit and dive straight into the pool or head to the beach across the street. You will love burying your feet in the soft white sand, savoring the feeling of being on vacation in one of the best places in Riviera Maya.

The food at the resort is fresh, plentiful, healthy and delicious with a Mexican flare.

There will be lots of fresh fruits and veggies, with local fish and chicken options. Cocktails are not included, however, this is also a RETREAT FOR YOUR TASTEBUDS so feel free to INDULGE!
Restaurants nearby are quaint and amazing, so I have planned a couple of nights out to enjoy.
