Are you ready to experience a week of self-care with a gigantic dose of laughter, creativity, fun, mindfulness, connection and AMAZING food?
Of. Your. Life.
This retreat will have as a backdrop, one of the most beautiful places in the world, Tulum, Mexico and the Caribbean Sea. Set in the heart of beautiful Tulum, the colors of Mexico will be inspirational for creating art projects guided by Renée and discussing self-care, manifestation and mindfulness with Amélie in a safe and caring environment.
It is happening:
MARCH 30th to APRIL 6th, 2019
Our mission for this retreat is to bring a group of women together to create a beautiful space for us to express ourselves completely, authentically and freely. This is a week for relaxation, self-care, fun, creativity and for creating lifelong friendships with other beautiful women. Come feel the warmth of the sun on your skin, the hot sand between your toes and the cool water of the sea (or pool) on your body…
Tulum’s spectacular coastline with its confectioner-sugar sands, jade-green water and balmy breezes – makes it one of the top beaches in Mexico. Not only that but they also have a dramatically situated Maya ruin. There will be shared accommodations on a beautiful property in Tulum town that features 6 units, a private garden and a pool to cool off in during your down time. Each unit will have its own bathroom and mini kitchen (should you want to get your own groceries and snacks at the nearby grocery store).
All breakfasts, lunches, some snacks and beverages are included with tuition. Dinners are the only thing that are not included but there are a variety of restaurants to fit every budget. Since Amélie knows the area very well, she will be guiding anyone who wants to follow to the best restaurants the area has to offer. Be prepared to have your taste buds blown away by the amazing food!
We’ve got you taken care of for the entire week! Pack your favorite bikini, get yourself to the Ottawa airport and let us take care of you until you get back home. The plan is to have everyone fly direct together into Cancun then you will all be driven into Tulum. Flights and transportation are included. (If you wish to fly from another city please let us know so we can work something out!).
The weather is pretty great at that time of year in Mexico and is typically around 25°C – 30°C so don’t forget to pack your sundresses and summer clothes along with your bathing suit.
Included in the retreat are four excursions:
Swimming in a cenote (a deep natural well found in Central America)
Yoga on the beach
Swimming in a protected lagoon
A day at one of the most beautiful beach clubs in the Riviera Maya.
You are, of course, welcome to do your own thing if any of these activities do not appeal to you. Our group will also have access to bikes should you want to take a ride through town. This is your time, so you do as you please.
Life Coach and Reiki Master/Teacher Amélie Gervais will be teaching the following workshops:
Mindfulness for Busy Women
You will learn some wonderful tricks and practices that can be used in order to incorporate mindfulness in daily life. These are sure to increase peace and joy; no matter what life throws at you. We will discuss many different positive ways of dealing with stressful situations, difficult partners/parents/children and incorporating mindfulness to create healthy, beautiful relationships.
Manifest Your Magic
Do you believe in magic? Or perhaps you’ve heard of manifesting and you’re curious how it could work for you? With this workshop, learn specific steps that will help you manifest anything you want in your life. This is an interactive workshop that will last throughout the week, implementing different steps every day.
Chakras and Meditation
Learn the basics of meditation and chakras, how they can become unbalanced and most importantly how to utilize Reiki to restore a healthy flow in all of your 7 energy centers.
Artist and instructor Renée Savoie will be teaching the following workshops:
You will be hand stitching a journal together and making a beautiful cover to house all of the lovely learnings, ideas and manifestations you will have throughout the week.
Embroidered Bib Necklace
Learn some basic embroidery stiches and create a gorgeous floral bib necklace that you can work on throughout the week while relaxing at the beach.
Mala beads are a string of beads traditionally used in prayer and meditation. They are also a beautiful reminder of our devotions. Everyone will get to make their own personalized mala bracelet and learn how to make a tassel (and what it’s significance is) to finish them off.
Although floral crowns have long represented many different things in different cultures, many women, like Frida Kahlo, used floral wreaths as subtle rebellious hints of their identification and free-spiritedness. Nowadays, they still represent similar notions from the past such as victory, romance, love, peace and femininity. Floral wreaths show the personality and style of the wearer and we are hoping you will show us yours in this workshop where we will be making handmade felt flowers to piece together a floral crown of your own.
