TULUM YOGA & WELLNESS RETREAT
Amansala Eco Chic Resort + Spa; Tulum, Mexico
June 20 - June 25, 2022
PRICE GOES UP MAY 16, 2022
We're off to Tulum, Mexico, known for its natural beauty, white sand beaches, award winning restaurants and Mayan Ruins.
IMAGINE: yoga, healthy food, beach time, snorkeling in the cenotes, salsa dancing under the stars, spa services, new friends and plenty of time to reconnect with yourself.
This retreat will consist of a variety of yoga practices, meditations and breath work to help you deepen & expand your practice, guiding you back to your innate potential & personal power. Better yet, classes will be held in a shala overlooking the ocean, just steps away where the waves will calm you back to your center.
Not only will you have two yoga classes a day, you'll also have time to relax on the beach, explore the city, participate in transformational mayan healing services and once in a lifetime excursions!
All of this is here to help you live life to the fullest so you never need to live vicariously through someone else - you get to make your own desired lifestyle your reality.
Amansala Retreat center is also world-renowned and has been featured in The New York Times, Yoga Journal, Self, Elle, Vogue, Allure, Pop Sugar, Nat Geo Traveler and more. Your experience of the center, staff, excursions, healing services and food will it be top notch, which I can speak to from first-hand experience!
It's all set and we'd love to have you join!

TESTIMONIALS FROM EMPOWERED: WOMEN'S RETREAT AT AMANSALA TULUM, NOVEMBER 2021
What People Say
This was a huge, scary commitment for me- with small children at home it seemed impossible to leave and to spend that amount of time and money on myself but I did it and I am so happy I did. It was such an amazing experience that I didn’t know I needed till I was there. Carole was absolutely wonderful!! She is such a beautiful soul, working with her was a delight. I would highly recommend taking a retreat with Carole, I can’t wait to go again.
AMAN:PEACE / SALA:WATERS
Amansala is Sanskrit named after the peaceful crystal clear waters of Tulum, and to this day it is still one of Tulum's most iconic, eco-chic boutique hotels. Amansala was founded on the belief that a true vacation is one where you come back looking and feeling better than when you arrived.
We are a full service resort that puts equal emphasis on indulgence as it does on the restoration of the mind, body and spirit. We believe in creating an experience that centers around the natural beauty and resources unique to Tulum. We use natural materials and resources to create simple yet beautiful rooms, a menu full of fresh delicious food and an atmosphere that feels more like staying at a friends beach house than a hotel.
Whatever you are looking for, it is our goal to create an experience that you will never forget where you can do as little, or as much as you want. Over the years, we have created a loyal following of guests who come to us to experience the best of Tulum, come see for yourself.
Amansala is located just 2 hours south of Cancun and is famous for it’s Mayan Ruins, and is preferred by yogis all over the world for it’s relaxed bohemian-chic feel, local highlights, beautiful beaches, hidden cenotes, and lush jungle and great vibes.
