About the Retreat

Yoga, Singing & Play: An Infusion of Radical Well-Being in Mexico

Join Margie and Barbara for a glorious week of yoga, singing, chanting, poetry, play, ceremony, and community. You don’t need ANY experience with yoga or singing to reap the full benefit of this infusion of radical well-being. Our emphasis is on pleasure and presence more than perfection.

Schedule

We offer two classes per day (10:30-12:30 and 7:30-9:00) with lots of time in between to do whatever is needed to re-connect with Nature’s rhythms, to give ourselves enough rest and play, movement and song, good company and wholesome nourishment to stand and engage with whatever life presents us.

There are optional activities available for a nominal fee including whale watching, a trip to the local street market, a sweat lodge, and guided hikes.  Spa services are also available.

Longing to transmit what’s essential & transformative by living my deepest convictions & sharing my ‘capacity to make beauty’, I am in willing service to those things ‘that cultivate intimacy with the sacred’ & that remind us we are not here by accident or error. Our vibrant health, deep well-being & capable hands are truly needed in this world. How shall we proceed? Whether you choose to engage in the conscious moving, sitting & singing meditations of yoga in Minneapolis or Mexico, the grief-metabolizing, soul-remembering labor of our hands keeping indigenous skills & arts alive in my local Handwork Sessions, you will have a chance to experience deep presence & moments of simple being. From that place new behaviors have fertile ground to sprout into living daily as if everything matters. margieweaver.com
