One of our recent Graduates from the AquaHolic Journey Yoga School was kind enough to leave us a testimonial on her experience of our 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training.

Casa Copal ~ Our secluded Ocean front Villa

THE SOUL FLOW RETREAT

Escape with Tiffany Zoldan to a secluded beach for a Women’s Retreat in the beautiful Mayan Riviera in November of 2021. Shhh…this is a chance to ignite your SOUL, awaken your inner KNOWING, embody your POWER and connect with your TRIBE for an intimate gathering in a Secret Beach Hideaway. This Retreat is all about embodiment and tuning into the rhythm of your SOUL’s FLOW! Explore the Mayan ruins and jungle landscape of the Mexican Caribbean, all while deepening your yoga practice, absorbing a gentle ocean breeze, and setting life-affirming daily intentions.

WHEN

November 12th-18th, 2021

THE PURPOSE

Come as you are – to reignite your inner Spark, and connect your mind, body and spirit. Women often put themselves last on the priority list, and the embodiment of this retreat to “fill up your cup.” This is your chance to sneak away to a private oceanfront Villa in a sleepy seaside village, and embark on a SOUL JOURNEY in a safe space for self discovery and truth. It’s also your time to be free, have fun and let go, so enjoy a massage on the beach, delight in the scrumptious local food, or curl up in a hammock with a book or a cocktail, this time is yours and you have permission to INDULGE!

THE REASON

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, digging deep to unveil our feminine powers, all while connecting with our tribe.

THE WAY

We strike a balance between solo, reflective time, and social time. Through self-care practices, intelligently sequenced warming flows, meditations and walks on the beach, powerful daily intentions, and SOUL ACTIVATING inner work, 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!

THE LOCATION

Copal Retreat is situated on the coast of the Riviera Maya, in a beach town called Paamul. It is an hour away from the Cancun International Airport, 15 minutes south of Playa del Carmen and 20 minutes north of Tulum.

THE VILLA

Casa Copal is an ocean-front villa in the Riviera Maya. Our rooftop studio space offers panoramic views of the Caribbean ocean, perfect for daily sunrise or sunset practices. Our acclaimed in-house chef delivers three meals a day with an exquisite menu offering deep Mexican roots with contemporary style influences, local and ethical ingredients, and will follow any dietary restrictions you may have.

The villa faces the beautiful waters of the Caribbean ocean and cohabitates with an abundance of coconut palm trees, flowers, hermit crabs, iguanas, pelicans, and other jungle and tropical beings. The Villa is situated beside an isolated and ungroomed coastline beach that is a sanctuary for turtles, a five-minute bike ride through the jungle. It is also next to another public beach with white sand that is a three-minute walk away. There are kayaks, paddle boards, beach bikes, and hammocks to use in your free time. Our beautiful suites are all steps away from the beach pool, the common space, and our rooftop studio space. We have beach-front and courtyard suite options, each offering two double beds and we offer either private or double occupancy suites.

Free WiFi in rooms and throughout the property!

THE FOOD

The food at the Villa is fresh, plentiful, healthy and delicious with a Mexican flare. The meal plan is based on the philosophy of “from the earth to your plate.” Our in-house chef and staff, deliver breakfast lunch and dinner for our guests. The menu has deep rooted Mexican dishes with contemporary style influences. The chef caters to any dietary restrictions or preferences a guest may have. We use local, seasonal, and sustainable ingredients, rich cultural Mexican techniques, and most importantly, lots of love in the food we serve. Three meals are served daily, and fresh fruit and tea and infused water is available at all times.

Cocktails are not included, however, this is also a RETREAT FOR YOUR TASTEBUDS so feel free to INDULGE!

THE ITINERARY

Plan to arrive on Friday November 12th and depart on Thursday November 18th.

The itinerary is curated by Tiffany, your guide and Yoga Instructor as well as your local hosts; proud Mexicans who are passionate about teaching others about Mexican culture while having a lot of fun doing it. On top of the daily sunrise and sunset practices of yoga, healing sessions and women’s circles overlooking the Caribbean waters, the Itinerary also offers a beautiful Mayan sound bowl therapy session for the opening ceremony amongst the ocean breeze, perfect for a spiritual and mental cleanse. There is a tour to a cenote, a fresh water sinkhole in the middle of the jungle, a lunch and beach day at a pristine beach club in Tulum and a tour to some ancient Mayan Ruins as well as and a one-hour massage session on the beach. An optional night out in Playa del Carmen on the famous Fifth Avenue can also be arranged! Whether you are cliff jumping in the jungle or reading a book on a hammock under a palm tree, the itinerary has the perfect balance between adventure and relaxation. THIS is a week to live in rhythm with nature’s cycles.

THE YOGA PRACTICE AND BEYOND

Tiffany is a trauma recovery certified E-RYT 200 yoga instructor and mindfulness and embodiment coach who will guide you through a safe yoga practice and inner work exercises. Morning classes will be all-level Vinyasa style, appropriate for most practitioners with some yoga experience.
