NATURE & YOGA RETREAT
FRIENDS Let´s meet and connect at Rancho La Concha and submerge ourselves on the practice of yoga and nature on this beautiful spot in Baja California. Yes, this crown jewel is a perfect spot to practice yoga, hike, explore, surf, meditate 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 >> 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 and lived in California for 7 years, where she met her teacher Tim senessi. She did her 200-hour Yoga training and has been teaching since. she mentions “ it’s a gift to always remain a student, there is no stopping there is always space for learning ”. Michelle enjoys combining a good blend of Vinyasa Flow along with some ideal postures with proper alignment, while still enjoying that flow of the elements.
Michelle has been studying, traveling close to Mother Nature, learning specific tools for self-work, discipline and connecting to Ancient wisdom through her travels, and her close days with the ocean. It’s a vibrant, uplifting Yoga class, where we let the breath guide us; we root down, rise up and open our hearts to the endless possibilities of life.
Rancho La Concha is located 2 hours south of Ensenada, between Santo Tomas and Ejido Eréndira at the Pacific Ocean Coast.
The ranch is located in a private ranch with more than two miles of private beach dream-like beaches loved by surfers, fisherman, and adventurers. Rancho la Concha is the perfect place to get disconnected from traffic, some responsibilities, and the noise pollution created by big metropolitan cities.
We chose this enchanting place because of the calmness and connection to nature it gives to people. The ranch has fresh running water from the mountains, green pastures, a dream-like beach, and little hidden places to sit and relax.
The amenities include a clean restroom with hot running water, kitchen to warm up your coffee, marked and clean areas to set up your tent, and many other things that will make your experience unforgettable.
