Are you dreaming of a week away to focus on yourself and your health without competing demands or priorities?

An active retreat, like no other. 


Just imagine spending 7 active days & 6 restful nights in beautiful Huatulco, Mexico, a gem on the pacific coast.

This week away will be filled with morning workouts and beach walks, hiking to hidden waterfalls, relaxing yoga sessions under the stars, healthy local food, downtime for relaxation, reflection, and health & wellness related workshops.

The Villa has a beautiful pool overlooking the ocean, a private beach down a set of stairs, and a massive yoga deck where we can stretch while breathing in the pacific ocean air or gaze at the starlight sky after a fun day together.


At the Retreat you will:

  • Disconnect from the stresses and demands of your everyday life and focus on yourself.
  • Experience the incredible mental and emotional health benefits of connecting with nature.
  • Learn proper form and technique for exercises.
  • Connect with like-minded people.
  • Learn healthy meal options and how you can easily prepare them at home.
  • Set some kick-ass goals and realistic milestones that will help you achieve them. You will develop a solid plan that you can put into action and get started on immediately!

Your Retreat Hosts:

Hi! I’m Marisa and I would love to hang out with you for a week in stunning Huatulco, a quiet beachside town on the southwestern part of Mexico. I've been coming to this area for over 15 years and it's one of my favourites! I'd love to share this special part of the world with you, in an active way.

I am a registered Personal Trainer with over 13 years of experience, Yoga Instructor, Precision Nutrition Level 1 coach, Certified Leadership Coach and I love being active outdoors. Getting out of town with some like-minded people to spend a week in the sun sweating, laughing, recharging & relaxing sounds just about like perfection to me.

I will be your trainer all week and will be leading the group through workouts, beach runs, yoga sessions and facilitating a few health & wellness workshops. This is your retreat, so everything is optional. All exercises can be modified, non-runners can walk and yoga will be geared to various levels of stretchiness (or non-stretchiness!)


Meet Esther & Roberto Tamayo.

They will be cooking for us throughout the week. Born and raised in Mexico City, Esther and Roberto bring an adored element of family & fun to the Retreat. We will be working together to create healthy dishes using local ingredients, bringing the authenticity of Costa Rica to your plate. Their dishes are guaranteed to make you weak in the knees. Plus they are two of sweetest people I know. If you want to learn how to cook they would be happy to show you their tricks of the trade. As an added bonus, you can have the opportunity to brush up on your Spanish skills.
