We had the so much fun with Hosh Yoga this past summer in Cuba and are so excited that they will be hosting a five-night, six- day yoga retreat in Tulum, Mexico led by Hosh yoga instructors, Jen Devery and Amy Hansen. Running from February 17th to the 22nd 2018, the retreat will bring yoga enthusiasts on a Mayan adventure to relax, explore, and unwind.

Devery and Hansen’s focus throughout the retreat will be on harmonizing body, mind, and spirit and helping yogis achieve a sense of greater well being. Mornings will begin with breakfast and an energetic yoga practice to set the mood for days filled with adventure, re-connection, and grounding. Evenings will feature a mindful activity, mediation, or restorative yoga practice. Continue reading
