Hola from Mexico! My alarm went off at 4:45 a.m. and I happily bolted out of bed to get ready for an early flight.
We have a great airport in Charlotte and I knew there would be lots of good breakfast options. It was nice not to have to choke down breakfast at home at 5 a.m. I ended up getting breakfast and Jamba Juice and ordered an apples and greens smoothie and a spinach and egg wrap.
Travel to Cancun from Charlotte is SO EASY! We left at 8 a.m. and touched down in Cancun at 10:12 a.m. local time. Direct flight on U.S. Airways. Our retreat is at Zoetry Paraiso de la Bonita in Puerto Moreles. It was just a quick 20 minute transfer from the Cancun airport. This resort is incredibly beautiful and zen and I’m happy to call it home for the next week. I mean, how can you be stressed when you walk through the entry to this view?
We grabbed sushi and ceviche at the poolside sushi bar while we waited for our rooms to be ready.
One of the best features of the resort are that every single room is ocean front. Not “ocean view” or “ocean side” but ocean FRONT!
We spent a few hours on the beach before our first practice of the retreat. We met at 5 p.m. on a dock overlooking the ocean. It was so relaxing to practice in the breeze with the sun setting
Pigeon never felt so good. It was such a great practice. My body felt more open than it’s been in a really long time. That’s what a big exhale can do for you I guess!
It will mostly be business as usual around here for the next week with a few retreat/vacation posts thrown in here and there. Follow me on Instagram to see lots of beach and yoga shots! Enjoy the weekend.
