Qoya Retreat with Kaci Florez May 6 - 13, 2017

Qoya is based on the idea that through movement we remember our true essence as women as being wise, wild, and free. Drawing from the wisdom of yoga, the wild and creative expression of dance, and the freedom to feel pleasure in our bodies through feminine movement, Qoya helps us to connect with all parts of ourselves, the seen and the unseen, on both sides of the veil.

The path of a woman is circular. Cyclical. We know as surely as we know spring will come, that our joys and challenges are both temporary. Our desire then isn’t to stay still, stuck in either fear or love. Our desire is to dance. To move back and forth between the challenges and joys, honoring the past and celebrating the present while looking towards the future with trust that no matter what comes, you will know how to dance with it. What if your willingness to feel it all is a portal to your awakening? It’s often said that the veil between life and death is very thin. But what if this imaginary veil was actually nothing more than the skin and body you live in?

What if the only difference between living on earth and living in spirit form is the body?

Kaci believes: -Our physical body is a portal to understanding and experiencing non-physical parts of ourselves and our world. -That by fully exploring and honoring our physical body, we can lift the veil on our spiritual Self. -We can access our infinite nature and bring the wisdom of our wholeness to this life right now, here on earth.

On this retreat, we will dance with the veil through daily movement, nourishing food, time in nature, deep rest, ritual, and honest connections with likeminded wise women.

Get to know Kaci at You’re ready to dance with the veil to experience your wholeness. All that lies on the other side is freedom.

Power Yoga Retreat with Bryan Kest
August 5, 2017 · 3:00 pm -
August 12, 2017 · 12:00 pm
Maya Tulum Resort
Retreats are just that! We leave our "normal," everyday life and enrich ourselves with an exotic, earthy adventure. I like to describe our retreats as vigorously spiritual and totally amazing in every way. My personal mission is to see to it that you have an amazing "trip!"

There are no prerequisites to attend the retreat, although it would be informative for you to have taken at least a few classes with me to see that you jive with my teaching style. You can take some of my classes online at

Bryan's Perspective:
All true wellness and health come from a calm and peaceful mind. A calm and peaceful mind is
• Less dominated by habits and addictive behavior.
• Less reactive to outer situations (less stress).
• More centered and objective.
• More accepting of life and its fluctuations.
• More in tune with the body breath, feelings and intuition.
So, the poses naturally need to be infused with a purpose and meaning which brings insight and energy to an otherwise mundane physical practice of poses, or eastern calisthenics. In this way, the poses become asana or "meditation in motion." As we excel in this practice, our yoga begins to transcend the yoga room and permeates our life. In other words, a strong physical practice needs to be grounded in a strong mental practice.

Yoga Retreat with Gina Wasserlein

September 30, 2017 · 12:00 pm
Maya Tulum Resort
Retreats are meant to reconnect with yourself and enrich your life. As you leave the “real world” for a little while, you have the opportunity to fill your cup and remind yourself of the importance to take care of you. This week Retreat will have everything you need to find balance in your life and to have the time to think about what is important in your life. You will see yourself through new lenses like a new fresh perspective of the amazingness that resides inside of you beneath the stress, tension, uncertainty and anything that is in the way of your true nature. My goal is to ensure that you have an amazing experience and feel relaxed yet recharged, strong yet soft, more balanced and ready to share the best of you with others.

There are no prerequisites to attend the retreat, just the desire for a little TLC time. You can participate in as many classes as you wish. Or if you desire, you can skip them too.

Contact Gina Wasserlein with any questions and to sign up at 519-890-9644.

Gina’s Perspective:
To be truly happy in life and to feel complete, balance, health and peace, we must be able to clear our minds and free ourselves from the thoughts that don’t serve us well. We must have the strength and clarity to listen to our intuition and the confidence to make things happen. The life we presently live stems from our past thoughts, words, and actions. Yoga and meditation are tools to help us live a life we all want to live. The more we practice being present, calm, peaceful on the yoga mat, the more we can practice being present, calm and peaceful off the mat… where it matters most.

Join Gina Wasserlein for this week dedicated to immersing yourself in all things that make life a little sweeter : yoga, nature, the ocean, good food and relaxation. Nurture yourself and truly treat yourself with tender loving care. This week long yoga vacation will reawaken yourself to your true nature of real peace that resides within all of us.
You will have the opportunity to participate in any of the 3 yoga classes offered for the week along with some meditation, walks and talks all taught and led by Gina.

Styles of yoga offered:
Early Morning Mysore
Slow flow/ Yin

You will have the freedom to feed your soul and body with what you need to get the most out of this retreat.

Read your favorite book in the hammock, or join a yoga class.
Soak in the sun or swim in the ocean. Take a long walk or take a nap. The retreat is your time to reconnect with the most important person to connect with YOU. You may choose to come with a spouse and really take the time to share in the beauty of this relaxing environment.

All activities and yoga classes are optional. This is where you get to choose based on how you feel – choose what works for you. Participants of all levels are welcome. You don’t need any experience with yoga to participate.

Discovery of Self

October 21, 2017 · 12:00 pm
Maya Tulum Resort
Tulum holds a special place in my heart and soul because of the discoveries that I have made while living and visiting this most magical of landscapes. I arrived initially in Tulum seeking to find deeper meaning in my life, but to also heal from my own challenges and soul loss. As a way to go more deeply into my discovery of self and my healing process, I sought the council of others in community to help me on my life’s path. Through meditation, yoga, and other healing practices, I began to learn the art of allowing the larger Self to emerge.

“The Discovery of the Self” Retreat is a way to share ancient teachings that can be applied in our busy postmodern lives; Going into the silence; sitting and walking in meditation; engaging our bodies though yoga; and journaling our experiences are all ways to engage more closely with our Divine Selves. These are practices that I will share as part of the retreat. All of these practices will be part of the sacred landscape of Tulum, Mexico. Tulum is one of the most beautiful settings of any city constructed by the Maya. Dominating the overlook to the sea, the Temple of The castle, is perched on a cliff overlooking pristine beaches and an aquamarine sea.
