Ignite Your Light: Dreaming the New You

In Troncones, Mexico
March 22-29, 2020

Join me with Dr. Valerie Girard, chiropractor and spiritual teacher,
for a Transformational Yoga & Healing Retreat on the beach. We will gather for one week by the sea at the beautiful yoga beach town of Troncones, just 25 minutes north of Zihuatanejo. We will stay at a lovely accommodation right on the sea with a swimming pool.


Daily Schedule

After a restful sleep to the sound of the waves, enjoy a daily light breakfast before meditating on our own yoga pavilion, situated right on the beach.

This will be followed by 1 and 1/2 hours of training in the various aspects of yoga with Terra. Yoga will be taught on a beautiful yoga platform or on the beach.
After a short break, engage in a two hour class to delve into the mysteries of body-mind-spiritual transformation, offered by Valerie.

After lunch, enjoy a variety of experiences including free time at the pool, a raw food cooking class, a trip to the Goddess Pools, community acupuncture, the local farmer’s market with local handmade goods, a cacao ceremony, shopping, restorative afternoon yoga or boogie boarding with Valerie. You may also wish to schedule with the many talented body workers offering Thai and deep tissue massage. Dr. Girard and Terra will also be available for energetic healing sessions.

In the evenings, we will enjoy beautiful dinners out, with classical guitar concerts, salsa dancing, a sunset horseback ride, dancing to rock and roll under the stars or perhaps, a quiet walk on the beach. Troncones has many lovely well priced restaurants serving delicious regional and organic food.
