Press pause on life and embark on an amazing week of yoga, fitness, movement, relaxation and adventure in one of Mexico’s quaintest and most beautiful coastal towns. Sayulita offers the best of the beach and the jungle with options for sun & ocean lovers, hikers and culture seekers. The eco-conscious Haramara retreat center is built on untouched land offering a truly unique opportunity to unplug from the world and reconnect with nature.
SoulPlay Retreats motivate personal growth and supportive community with experiences that connect and challenge your body and mind. Our deal is, “you do you.” We’ll offer at least one yoga class daily, a fitness or movement session each day as well as an arm balance & inversion workshop to help you get upside down, meditation sessions, group activities, hikes and a zip line adventure! Choose the things that make your soul play, and take the rest of the time to “do you,” get a massage, take a nap or chat with new friends. This is not your typical yoga retreat!! SoulPlay Retreats may push you out of your comfort zone, make you face fears and look at how you show up to new and exciting challenges. We work hard, play hard and rest hard. We start to break through patterns that have kept us from our full potential, all while building real friendships for life.
You’ll move in the open air of the jungle, hike down to our own private beach, have meaningful conversations, chill in the infinity pool overlooking the ocean, read in a hammock by your cabaña, maybe try the sweat lodge. You’ll step out of your comfort zone, relax deeply, and become part of an incredible Tribe on this rustic adventure that will leave you feeling connected, inspired and free.
We welcome all levels of experience. You don’t need to be a yogi, a fitness buff or a movement pro, you just need to be a human being interested in learning, moving and making connections with other amazing humans. Basic familiarity with yoga is recommended – our classes are accessible and challenging for all.

Retreat Leader, Fitness & Nutrition Nerd –
Jack of many trades, Gary launched his career as a national champion bodybuilder in the 90s while simultaneously languishing away as a computer programmer and technology manager. To spice things up, he performed and ultimately went on to teach improv comedy in the 00’s. He then applied his knowledge and love of training and became a founding partner of the international fitness and nutrition company Metabolic Effect, leading multiple weekend seminars both nationally and internationally as well as online seminars and trainings in fitness, fat loss, nutrition and mindset. During these 20-odd years, Gary discovered that these two worlds are not as unrelated as they may seem on the surface. The ability to stretch (both your mind and muscle), see perceived failures and mistakes as opportunities for success, the ability to laugh at yourself and to always be learning are just a few of the key skills that Gary imparts on his students and peers. Not only will you learn how to workout in the most effective manner for every situation you may find yourself in in life, but you will also learn how to progress and regress workouts to your needs, and learn about the power of the mind-muscle connections running through your body. www.garyleake.com
