The Goddess Rising Yoga Retreat November 15-22, 2020

A glimpse into the Goddess Rising Retreat

THE GODDESS YOGA RETREAT

Join Tiffany Zoldan for a beach yoga retreat in beautiful Tulum, Mexico in November of 2020. This is a chance to ignite your SOUL, awaken your inner GODDESS, step into your POWER and connect with your TRIBE! 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 PURPOSE

The mission behind this retreat – to awaken and celebrate your inner Goddess by doing the inner work. In order to feel empowered, we often need to break down the barriers inside of us to rise up and truly love ourselves. This is a safe space for self discovery and truth.
Being a Goddess also means being pampered and indulging the mind, body and spirit. The embodiment of this retreat to “fill up our cup” 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!

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, and 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

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:

Why YOU Should Create a VISION BOARD

Happy New Year everyone! Since we have entered into a new decade, I have been fired up to set intentions, put goals into action and manifest my wildest dreams. I kicked the new year off by creating a Vision Board for my “2020 Vision” and hung it up by my bathroom sink so I would see it every day!

Did you know that a vision board is a concrete representation of your desires and aspirations for a compelling life? They are also fun to create and can serve as an invaluable tool to motivate and inspire you towards concrete daily action in pursuit of your biggest and most important life goals!

A vision board is a sacred place that displays what you want in life. When you hang it in a space where you see it daily, your vision board brings your goals and aspirations to life…

So check out my latest episode on 5 MINUTES TO MINDFULNESS and take 5 minutes to create a vision board that will give you a clear picture of where you want to get to!

Why Tulum?

I was late when it came to ‘discovering’ Tulum. By the time I booked a vacation for my husband and I to explore Tulum, it had already blown up on Instagram, was considered a “Yoga Destination” and was featured as THE hottest spot to visit in various publications world wide. It was December of 2014, and Benjamin and I decided to have one last holiday before we were going to try for our first baby. I chose Tulum because of the yoga factor, and we were were searching for a place where we could ditch the alcohol and focus on clean eating and juicing. We certainly found what we were looking for…and then some!!! The beautiful long stretches of white sand beaches with aquamarine waters, dazzled my eyes. The countless yoga shalas to practice in, soothed my muscles. The incredible array of fresh fish, ceviche, fruit and juice nourished my body, and the magic of it all fed my soul. In many ways, Tulum awakened my senses. The gentle reminders on various road signs like “Stay Present” and “Follow that Dream” kept me in the moment.

The variety of places to explore ignited the adventurer in me. The hidden gems on the jungle side of the beach road sparked up the romance with the soft music and candlelight. Tulum sounds like the ocean, smells like copal, tastes like mezcal, feels like yoga bliss, and looks like paradise. However, waking up to the sunrise over the ocean each day was perhaps my most priceless experience. On any given morning I would see many gather on the beach for the sun to rise. Some would be walking the shore, others would be practicing their Sun Salutations, I even encountered a gorgeous topless opera singer who would serenade the sun with her voice. She reminded me of one of my dearest friends, and I was drawn to her freespirited fiery soul. I myself looked forward to the ritual of the sunrise, and envisioned my own dreams by manifesting them in those quiet moments before the day began. Perhaps Tulum is part of the reason I got pregnant with my first without ever trying. I literally got home after our first visit to Tulum, and within a week conceived. My soul had been satisfied, my heart was full and I set my intentions on that sacred beach the Mayans discovered centuries before.

Tulum-RuinsOver the last 3 years we have visited Tulum a handful of times and I’ve comprised a list if my favorite places to enjoy while there.

YOGA

Offers an incredible array of yoga classes in a beautiful jungle side yoga shall.

A stunning yoga studio right on the beach, offering the most exquisite view.

One word: MAGIC

BEACH CLUBS

Good vibes, amazing mixologists, and great daybeds to post-up on.

This place has a fun atmosphere with a caribbean feel.

BEACH DINING

Italian food, extremely romantic, and beyond charming.

Authentic thai food with the best view in Tulum.

Gluten, dairy, grain and refined sugar free food. SOOO delicious.

JUNGLE SIDE DINING

Argentinean steakhouse with a beautiful ambiance.

EVENING COCKTAILS

A magical mezcal bar to enjoy a cocktail or dinner, then dance under the palm trees and disco ball.

Really romantic place to settle in and try an array of fabulous cocktails.

DOWNTOWN TULUM

Located on the best block in downtown Tulum and my favorite place to get caffeinated. Also next to the best bar downtown that serve fresh mojitos right out of an old painted volkswagen beetle.

Local dive. HUGE portions. The ceviche is ridiculously good.

 

 

Hi, I’m Tiffany & I’m an AquaHolic

It all started with a family trip to Venezuela when I was a kid. It was the first time I had ever seen water so blue…aquamarine to be exact. We were flying to a place called Margarita Island, and as I looked out the airplane window, I was dazzled by the various colors of aqua and turquoise below. Considering I grew up in Canada and had been accustomed to grey skies and cold weather, I was shocked that colors like this actually  existed in nature. That was it! I decided then and there that I was going to travel the world to discover the perfect white sand beaches and azure seas.

Fast forward to now, and while I have searched far and wide for the most beautiful beaches in the world, from the South Pacific to the Caribbean, Australia to Europe, Asia to South America, I’ve been blown away by the awe-inspiring pieces of paradise I’ve been blessed enough to visit. However, I realized over the years that it wasn’t enough for me to just visit these places, I wanted to choose one and live there… and this is where the story begins.

See this blog is called AquaHolic JOURNEY for a reason. I know it’s cliche, but it’s really not about the destination, it’s about the journey. If it had been up to me, I would’ve moved to a bohemian beach town years ago, but I’ve had to learn patience, which is MUCH easier said than done for me.

I also met, fell in love with, and married my soulmate, and somehow convinced him to take this crazy journey with me, although he didn’t need much convincing since he is a water lover also.

We have much more in common then our wanderlust and love of the ocean though. We are both Pisces, exactly one week apart in age, we were both born and raised in Canada, but are also American (thanks to each of our American Mom’s) and we adore our family. Oddly we met in Vegas where we currently reside, but that’s another story.

Back to patience…the virtue I just do not have (sigh) I’ve had to learn patience because my husband is rational and realistic, and I am a dreamer. Luckily for me he makes dreams come true, and he does so with careful thought-out planning. Needless to say we put our plans into motion, and have been moving forward, albeit slow and steady. Not to mention our plans have changed and evolved over the 8 years we’ve been together, and so have we. Our goal is still same, but we certainly upped the anti…We started out as a young couple without a care in the world and no responsibilities, to a more practical duo who got married and bought a house. After a lot of work and saving, plus a ton of market research in various beach locations around the globe, we purchased our plot of land in our dream destination. Now, we are ALL in with 2 baby girls, a mortgage, a motorcycle, some land and a dream… So THIS story is not so much about MY journey as a free spirited gypsy soul…because while I am still all of those things, I am now part of a fabulous and fearless foursome, and together WE are on an AquaHolic journey to living a life by the sea.

IMG_20170707_141402.jpg

This journey will include all things related to water in our lives, including my two natural water births I had over the last two years. It will cover the progressional steps we are taking to start our business, learn a new language, move to a foreign country with our beach babies in tow. Also, we may live in the desert right now, but I’m on the lake as much as possible teaching SUP Yoga, planning my yoga retreats, and using the water to get my pre-baby body back~ whether it’s through swimming or mermaiding;)

So if you’ve ever dreamed about leaving the rat race for the beach pace, my hope is our journey will inspire you. Even if you are choosing to live a more authentic life by tapping into your own dreams and pursuing them, I would love to know what your passions are!! It takes courage, faith and perseverance to make a dream become reality, so be prepared to hear the up’s and down’s and everything in between when it comes to ours.

I’m Tiffany and I’m and AquaHolic. Who are you, and what are your passions?

The Calming Ritual of Tea

Making Tea a Ritual ~ 5 Minutes to Mindfulness

As simple as this may sound, and as cheesy as this video may be, there really are a ton of benefits in turning the act of drinking a cup of tea, into a mindful ritual.

Of course I shot this video BEFORE the days of quarantined life, and now drinking tea is something I do with my kids running around me squealing lol! However, it doesn’t take away the enjoyment of such a simple act.

Lastly, remember you can do anything for 5 minutes so why not to do something positive for your well being. 💕

Stay mindful my friends.🙏🏻

Why Floating is Therapeutic!

I don’t know about you, but this is the time of year that I start craving some Vitamin Sea!

Did you know that floating in nature, or feeling weightless in a hammock, or even utilizing a “flotation tank”, also known as a “sensory deprivation chamber” has many benefits! It is most often used as a method for relaxation and to boost creativity. It can allow one to engage in a deep meditative state, regardless of meditation experience.

Watch this video to feel some summer vibes and a taste of serenity.

Lastly, remember you can do anything for 5 minutes so why not to do something positive for your well being. 💕

Stay mindful my friends.🙏🏻

The Importance of Walking in Nature!

I get it, it’s hard to get outdoors when you would rather stay cozied up inside where it’s warm, but did you know that walking in nature can decrease depression, improve your wellbeing and mental health, and lower perceived stress???

Sometimes all we have is 5 minutes!! So this is just a friendly reminder to try and spend those 5 minutes doing something POSITIVE for yourself!!

Imagine how you would feel if you implemented walking in nature for 5 minutes a day, 7 days a week!!!😊

10 Things to Know About SUP Yoga Certification

Getting there

You can choose to fly to Ilheus or Salvador. If you fly to Ilheus (a smaller airport where airfairs might be more expensive) you will only need to take a 1 hour cab ride to Itacaré. However if you fly into Salvador’s International Airport, you can either take a cab ride to Itacaré (costs around 800 BRL) or you will cross over to Itaparica island with the ferry and from there take the bus to Itacaré (costs around 50 BRL). Both options take about 6 hours. The Soulful Kind would be happy to help you organize a reliable cab from Ilheus or Salvador if you notify us beforehand by email.

Accommodations

Welcome to our hidden tropical oasis, a small family owned hotel close to the beach. Picture charming and rustic bungalows that are hidden under Cacau and Mango trees.
