 MAR DE JADE – CHACALA MEXICO! November 9th – November 16th 2024


This retreat is an invitation to dive deep into the medicine of Somatic Movement in a healing and beautiful location.  Experience Nia, Breathwork, Feldenkrais,  Meditation, Relaxation, Connection, Play, Expansion and JOY-FULL Expression. Mar De Jade’s beautiful natural surroundings and serene atmosphere makes for a magical experience. It is situated at the foothills of a tropical jungle, between the mountains and the warm shores of the pacific ocean. You will hear birds each morning and the ocean waves throughout the day.

“Mar de Jade is one of the great undiscovered pleasures of Mexico… A tropical setting that lifts the spirits and fires the imagination.”
