Rejuvenating Retreats in Mexico

 

Retreats in Mexico are all held at my beautiful home in Guayabitos, Nayarit, just one hour from the airport in Puerto Vallarta.

Retreats include morning sunrise meditation followed by a snack, tea, coffee and green juice.  Then we enjoy a 90-minute yoga class on the outdoor patio, surrounded by flowers, palm trees and hummingbirds.  Yoga is gentle and healing, primarily Hatha, suitable for beginners to intermediates.

A delicious breakfast buffet follows, hearty and including a cornucopia of local fruit.  The two-hour workshop is inter-active and focuses on different themes for each retreat.  All are inspiring and motivating, and demonstrate how we can make our lives healthier and happier.  Participants always enjoy the discussions in twos, and engage as much as they are comfortable doing.

We finish with a full, hot lunch, catered by the best chef in town.  All past guests have raved about the fabulous food.  (See reviews at bottom of this page.)

All activities are optional for participants, and are completed by 2:00 PM so everyone is free to spend the afternoons and evenings enjoying the beach and trying out local restaurants for dinner.

Accommodation is available throughout Guayabitos and nearby.  Sometimes my own suites are free, so do inquire.  See Agneta’s Suites on the site menu.

For more information, write to me on the CONTACT page.

March 1st – 4th retreat

Theme:  Transitions after 50, 60, 70:

Finding Clarity and Inspiration as Life Changes

Major life changes sometimes bring about confusion and lack of motivation.  And yet they can be the beginning of some of the best chapters of your life.  Here we will learn to recognize and release undermining habits, and develop values-based intentions that guide us into this wonderful, new era.

The sharing of our thoughts and feelings through discussions during the workshops was very powerful….this is what I intend to do more of.

 

December 6th – 9th

Mother / Daughter retreat

Theme:  Loving Communication

By request, this is our first mother / daughter retreat.  You are welcome to come with a niece, granddaughter or any young woman with whom you’d like to spend this special time.  We will share yoga classes and fun workshops, learning how to communicate our needs lovingly and respectfully.  It will be a time of mutual nurturing and bonding.

Note:  I may have accommodation available for this retreat.  Write to me via the Contact page.

 


 
I learned to spend more time in awareness and observation.  I will try to send out love and joy to everyone I meet.

January 24th – 27th retreat

Theme: – A Consciousness of Love

Based on Marianne Williamson’s book “A Return to Love, we will learn how to move from fear to love in all our interactions.  The workshops will provide a powerful incentive for positive and healing change.

I loved the yoga, especially the restorative class.  I come every year and enjoy connecting with past participants.

Most Participants Return!

Time for me.  In my busy world, this is a time just for me, that I relish. It is wonderful to meet like minded people who share a passion for learning new things and yoga. It is also a wonderful time to reconnect with past attendees.  –Shawn, attended five years in row.

Time for Reflection.  It was a time to reflect on my life while being guided how I can improve it each day.  –Patty W, attended two years in a row.

Living in a Divine State.  (The retreat was about) revisiting ego and its force brought me back to working on recognizing it on a moment to moment basis and attempting to move past it to respond and live in a more “divine mind” state. –Robin, attended three years in a row.

Awesome Week.  This week reinforced a lot of principals I try to live by…was reminded of the importance of being grateful and living with an attitude to shift your life. –C. Pierson, attended four times.  Brooks, Alberta.

Small Steps.  I learned that I carry a lot of worry, and now choose to release worry in my life and live a peaceful, joyful existence. –M. McNamara, attended three years in a row.  Kamloops, B.C.

Wonderful 1st Time Experience Located in the residential area at Agneta’s new home and outdoor yoga studio, the “Guayabitos Yoga Retreat–How to Live to Be a Hundred”, proved to be an invigorating, week-long experience. Surrounded by ocean views, beautiful gardens, hummingbirds and iguanas, this setting provides a perfect backdrop for the retreat. Days beginning with sunrise meditation and yoga geared to individual participants set the tone for the remainder of the day. Discussion sessions relating to “How to Live to Be a Hundred” and the role that mind body and spirit play in being healthy and whole at any age, were thought provoking and provided me with an awareness of how I can improve my well being.  This retreat is tailored to the needs of both men and women. Overall, the retreat provided excellent value and would provide both new and experienced yogis with a valuable experience. It’s an excellent investment in oneself.–Keith, attended three years. (Lethbridge, AB. Canada)

A job well done-Rejuvenating Yoga Retreat  This year was yet another amazing yoga retreat. It is always so nice to take a whole week and focus on myself. Great yoga every day, wonderful thoughtful topics that I will continue to think about and use to grow spiritually, yummy healthy food and best of all the company of old friends and some new friends. Thanks Agneta!  – Lauri K, attended two years in a row

Wonderful!  First of all the tropical location is beautiful. The day is very nicely paced and well organized, with options for all the different levels of our yoga practice and room to stretch and improve. There is opportunity for personal time if you need or want to discuss anything specific with Agneta.  The workshops are illuminating and thought-provoking with everyone participating in an informal discussion on the topic of the day.  The food is creative, tasty, fresh and nourishing, I so look forward to the breakfasts and lunches!  – Marie D, attended Mexico retreat twice
