TRANSFORMATIONAL YOGA RETREAT
TRANSFORMATIONAL YOGA RETREAT
FRIENDS Let´s meet and connect at Ejido Eréndira and submerge ourselves on the practice of yoga and nature on this beautiful spot in Baja California. Here, the beach is located 30 steps and one burrito away from the campsite. Yes, this crown jewel is a perfect spot to practice yoga, explore, surf and relax the entire day; It is also a perfect place to disconnect from our daily routines, jobs, school and enjoy nature's gifts!
MEETING SPOT >> Larroque 271, Empleados Federales, 22010 Tijuana, B.C.
DAY 1: Tijuana - Eréndira (3 Hours).
After departing from Nativo Coffee in Estacion Federal, we will head south and drive through the toll road from Tijuana to Ensenada, this is a scenic road so be prepared to be mesmerized.
We will stop at a local organic restaurant in Ensenada to have breakfast. We will then head towards Santo Tomas, which has a checkpoint. Please be aware that weapons, ammo, and drugs like marijuana are illegal in Mexico, do not bring any of these things, for we will not be responsible for anyone. We will then arrive to the town of Santo Tomas and take a detour towards the ranch; here is where the off road will begin, It will take around 40 minutes to arrive to our final destination. We will arrive to the campsite right in front of the beach, so be prepared for a spectacle! We will set up camp and prepare food. After having lunch we will have some free time to tour around the area and we will have our yoga class after. Lastly but not least we will have dinner and a bonfire to enjoy nature all together under the stars.
DAY 2: Yoga and Connection With Nature
Wake up with the rising sun and start our yoga session. Breakfast will follow and then we will jump right in into our Workshop on how to keep an active spiritual life; how to empower your life through journaling, chanting, and understanding your energy portals also known as chakras. We will create our own vision board and journal our wildest dreams as we are surrounded by nature in this beautiful authentic serene place in Baja California. At night we will have our Cacao Ceremony; it consists of creating a safe space around the fire and the rest will unfold.
Our last yoga will be in the morning of Sunday. After the yoga class we will have a hearty breakfast and free time to relax on your last day. We will head back to Tijuana at 12 p.m. and will be arriving at 6 p.m. to the border.
Michelle was raised in Tijuana Baja California, México. She embarked on a journey to Orange County in order to complete Nursing school, it was here where her spiritual quest began. A new chapter started in her life; her love for the ocean started to sprout along with her passion for surf and Yoga, which became her medicine for the soul. She became certified with 200-hour teacher training at YogaWorks with Tim Senesi. She currently assists Yoga Master Senesi on spiritual retreats worldwide. Michele also teaches in Tijuana and Ensenada and has developed her own style of “Healing Vinyasa Flow.” Which is meant to reinforce the Asana practice (physical postures) and it is influenced with the spiritual side of nature’s medicine and one's own healing energy.
Michelle spends most of her time in nature; practicing and teaching Yoga to people who have heard the calling for a spiritual awakening. She shares how nature is her greatest teacher, and how fortunate it is to connect with this earth. She is currently working in opening the first yoga studio in Valle de Guadalupe, which is the Napa Valley of Baja California.
Michelle loves combining nature’s medicine with the practice of yoga because both help her achieve balance. She keeps her mind and heart open, as life brings new opportunities and challenges in her career. Her mantra is “staying close to her intentions, teachers and knowing that there is always room for improvement and self-love.
