Barefoot for a Week – Restore, Reveal & Illuminate!

Full Moon Yoga Retreat with Karen Dorfman and Shonali Banerjee

Spend a week with your feet in the sand on this week-long yoga retreat set in Mexico’s spiritually and culturally rich Yucatan Peninsula. Wake to the sounds of ocean waves from your cabana as you prepare to make your way to morning meditation and yoga practice. Throughout the week you will enjoy two specially designed yoga classes per day which will lead up to a full moon beach-side ceremony on the final night of the retreat. On some days there will be a third class focusing on a special aspect of yoga. Karen and Shonali teach multi-layered mindful vinyasa yoga classes meant to support each individual in the group. Restorative yoga, pranayama, and meditation will be sprinkled generously throughout. Shonali lends her beautiful voice by leading accessible mantra practices and offering sweet sounds during savasana. There will be a sacred intentional labyrinth walk, and a full moon traditional sweat lodge called the Mayan Temezcal (optional, extra fee).

Time between classes opens to whatever brings you happiness and contentment. Enjoy long walks on the beach, swim in the clear turquoise water, relax in a hammock with a book, connect to nature, visit local shops, or schedule spa treatments right on property. A mid-week break may include an excursion to the Tulum ruins, Coba, Chichen Itza, magical Cenotes, or the absolutely amazing Sian Kaan Biosphere.

Take this time for yourself to rejuvenate while being supported by two wonderfully experienced teachers. Our intention is for you to feel refreshed, illuminated and inspired by the end of the week . Join us to deepen your practice or jump in for the first time. All are welcome!
