Festival of Lights: Yoga & Ayurveda Retreat -23 to 28 October- TULUM

6 days and 5 nights in the mystical Mexican Riviera Maya with the magical celebration of lights of Diwali
Saturday 23 to Friday 28 October

Let’s celebrate with lights, flowers, and rituals THE GIFT OF LIFE. In this retreat we will celebrate as in India: In a FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS!

Join us in a mystical retreat of the spirit, to celebrate one of the most sacred nights of the year, DIWALI, the light that dwells in every heart. We wanted to appropriate this auspicious date to delicately weave a space where we give ourselves permission to detoxify our body, disconnect our mind from the frenetic rhythm, and internalize the teachings of the twin sciences of Yoga and Ayurveda, to awaken to more optimal health.

If you are open to a more purposeful life, awakening in consciousness, and ready to step into a brighter future, join us for 6 days of Yoga, Ayurveda, meditation, mantras, teachings, vibrant food, natural beauty, and the ceremony. Diwali, the festival of lights, in the magical Riviera Maya.

Taking distance in nature and getting away from routine life opens the door to inner silence and to consciously inhabiting that personal refuge. We are going to share in this retreat many of the keys and secrets of Yoga and Ayurveda for life in complete nutrition and longevity. The goal of these sciences, inherited from the East, is that we return to our essence, that we know ourselves better, and establish ourselves in HARMONY.

This will be a space of transformation, through study and daily practices, that will satisfy our body, that will nourish our mind and that will open windows of our being that have remained closed. We deserve as humanity to awaken to a kinder, loving, and softer consciousness, to treat ourselves better as individuals and as a collective fabric. From this immersion, you will leave with the inspiration to serve, connect and vibrate higher on your path.

A complete program, with enough free time to relax and recharge your internal batteries. Discover the Mexican Riviera Maya and its essential spiritual heritage. Join us to visit a secluded mystical cenote in a natural sanctuary and let your heart expand in a sacred Mayan pyramid. But everything seen and understood in the light of Yoga and Ayurveda.

What is a yoga retreat?

What is Ayurveda and why is it important?

Ayurveda is the name of the Indian medical system with more than 5,000 years of wisdom that diagnoses and treats illness from the comprehensive view of the Human Being in all its dimensions: body, mind, and spirit.

More than a health system, Ayurveda is the science of life. In Sanskrit, ayus means life and veda means wisdom. Ayurveda, the wisdom or science of life, offers us a recognized guide to achieving greater happiness, energy, and love, as well as to develop the meaning or purpose of our lives. From the Ayurvedic point of view, human beings are not simple machines that we have learned to think about, but rather fields of intelligence that exchange energy and information with the environment. Health is a state of balance, where all the dimensions of the human being are integrated. Ayurveda reminds us that health is the balanced state of dynamic integration between our environment, body, mind, and spirit.

An important goal of Ayurveda is to identify a person’s ideal state of balance, determine where their imbalance is, and offer tools such as diet, herbs, aromatherapy, massage, yoga, meditation, and music to restore it. Ayurveda as part of your healthy lifestyle helps you:

  • Have a clear understanding of your body and mind and what conditions can trigger disease
  • Prevent, through self-knowledge, diseases that may be developing in your body
  • Make the right decisions about your diet and lifestyle
  • How to cope with the difficulties of daily life.
  • Ayurveda focuses on removing the roots of disease. Let’s use this immersion to together rectify our habits to establish ourselves in radiant health.

 


Why should you come to this Festival of Lights?

✓ Because it is the perfect opportunity to respond to the call of your soul, to retire for a while in solitude, calming the mind and recharging the internal batteries.

✓ Because you want to recognize your personal constitution (Vata, Pitta, or Kapha) to have radiant health at all levels.

✓ Because it is a unique opportunity to share and celebrate life with others through this festival of lights, Diwali.

✓ Because through the retreat, we will conscientiously make a pilgrimage through these sacred Mayan lands, which carry powerful ancestral energy.

✓ Because you know that you have always longed for spiritual rebirth, and fill yourself with new tools for a more awake life.

✓ Because you are grateful to live and feel the need to honor it with a special ceremony.

✓ Because you want yoga, mantras, meditation, and healthy eating to be your medicine.

✓ Because reconnect with your purest and noblest essence.
