Mexico Retreat

Shake off the Winter Blues, and Join us for an Unforgettable Mexico Retreat

The Tulum, Mexico retreat promises relaxation, rejuvenation and an absolutely unforgettable week in Paradise. This retreat combines a "spring cleaning" yoga program, beautiful beaches and a complete refresher for the body, mind and soul.

In addition to flowing through a daily yoga practice in a beautiful open air yoga studio surrounded by spectacular views of white-sand beaches and unbelievably clear, turquoise water, plan to soak up spectacular sunrises, sunsets, starry skies, enjoy delicious local meals (and the best mango margaritas in Mexico).


Jillian’s Mexico retreat was a fantastic, heartwarming, restorative and rejuvenating retreat experience. I often close my eyes in class, at work, etc. and simply take myself back to that palapa, pretending I am hearing the birds, Jillian’s music, breathing the fresh air, smelling the flowers, lost in a pose.

A Sample Day

Every morning Jillian will weave various purifying techniques such as slow flow vinyasa, cleansing pranayama, mediation and relaxation and each evening you will experience a deeper release in restoratives and other expanding practices. You will become more revitalized each day and totally regenerated by our last class as we cumulate on the spring equinox with a transforming and celebratory practice.

Between classes you are invited to play hard or relax deeply.  Our hotel, Amasala, is located directly on the beach, a short bike ride from the ancient Myan Ruins. And close to the Sian Ka’an Biosphere, Mayan for “Where the sky is born”.  You can adventure out to swim and snorkel in the cenotes (underground caves), or relax and stay cool and lazy in a hammock; sun bathe, and more. For an extra fee you can enjoy spa treatments by Mayan midwives (including an amazing belly massage).  Up and down the beach there is awesome food, great shopping, kite surfing and paddle boarding lessons, bikes for rent to explore on your own, or simply walk or run for miles along this gorgeous shoreline.

You are guaranteed to return home with a reenergized body, calm mind and awakened spirit.


Amansala is a perfect beachfront eco-resort, boasting two open air practice spaces and several different dining & gathering areas--both indoors and out--all with ocean views. All rooms have private baths with hot & cold water, separate sitting areas--each has its own artisanal decor and unique charm. Amansala has a luxurious bohemian chic feel with sweet ocean breezes, a beach club with bar, and gorgeous white sand beaches stretching in both directions. It really is a very special spot.

While all the rooms at Amansala are lovely, open to ocean breezes and none more than 80 feet from the ocean, not all rooms are oceanfront. These rooms are available on a first come/first served basis, so participants are strongly encouraged to book as soon as possible in order to have the possibility of reserving the most desirable room.
