  • Xinalani Puerta Vallarta Mexico (map)

Tap into your body’s innate wisdom through yoga & meditation and find inspiration and momentum for 2019. Explore herbal supports and create vitality through eating solutions that sustain and nourish you.

Join yoga teacher and Olympian Emily Silver with herbalist and wellness coach Anna Matriotti for a week of restoration and transformation at Xinalani, an exclusive yoga retreat center in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

We begin with a powerful intention setting circle to prepare you for the transformative journey you are embarking on. Each day begins with optional morning meditation, followed by a Hatha Vinyasa flow yoga class. Each evening ends with Restorative yoga and sacred circle. There will also be daily herbal intensives focusing on understanding how to balance the systems of the body through functional nutrition. This includes working with digestion, hormones, detoxification, and optimizing metabolism. Optional mini workshops will be available throughout the week including guided ocean swims and plant meditation.
