8 Limbs Late-Winter Yoga Retreat with MJ Daniels and Leisha Davis

March 14- 21, 2020

Slowing down, nourishing ourselves and connecting to the Divine within.
Join MJ Daniels and Leisha Davis* for a week at the beautiful Haramara Retreat in Nayarit, Mexico. We will focus daily on personal inquiry through the Yoga Sutras. Also, practicing twice daily mantra, asana, pranayama, and meditation. All of these practices are tools to help us navigate and guide our way to the Divine within.
Haramara means “Mother Sea” in the native Huichol Indian language. This retreat offers the atmosphere for you to feel your connection to the earth, to the sea, and to yourself and experience relaxation, renewal, and restoration. Find a quiet place to sit and read, enjoy a beverage, write in your journal or connect with friends, new and old. Enjoy beach time for sun, sand and solitude; swim, walk, read or stretch out for a nap.

Packages include:

At Haramara you will find yourself nestled in tropical jungle vegetation with vistas that soothe the soul. Local artisan-designed cabanas are electricity-free, inviting us into a deep connection with nature’s rhythms and our own subtle body. Beach access and a stunning infinity pool allow you to enjoy sun, water, and the tropical climate.
Our yoga practices will focus on mindfulness and awareness of the energetic qualities of our being. Our teachings will incorporate the ancient science of Ayurveda, Yoga tune-up therapy, yoga folklore and philosophy. There will be opportunity during the retreat to self reflect through yoga and meditation as well as igniting creativity through journaling, ocean gazing and Mexican Culture. The experience will serve as a beautiful opportunity to deepen the relationship with yourself.
We will offer a perfect blend of asana practices, meditation, self-inquiry, and free time. Additional experiences are offered with a fee. These include cooking classes, trekking and zip-lining, massage, bodywork and more.
Take this opportunity for yourself to unplug and take your yoga practice to new depths. Come home to yourself in the special magic of Haramara. Visit their photo gallery to see cabanas, setting, pool, and more.


The cabañas have been designed with comfort in mind. Enjoy the rustic luxury of one of Haramara’s spacious cabañas, which feature comfortable beds with hand woven sheets, gauzy sheer curtains to filter the sunlight, and oil lamps and candles for softly lit evenings. Most cabañas have private hammocks for lazy afternoon naps.
Each cabaña has its own unique and individually designed private bathroom with hot water, monogrammed towels, and an open air shower with a view.

About Your Retreat Leaders:

MJ Daniels has a unique style that has been influenced by many different teachers and years of training. She has an intuitive, gentle approach to her teaching. Her classes have a Bhakti influence focussing on love and devotion. Her practices help students reach all the layers of their being by incorporating flow style asana, yoga philosophy, pranayama, mudras, and vibrational sound through mantras, harmonium, singing bowls, and tibetan bowls. Through her gentle and warm presence she exudes an open invitation to practitioners of all levels, creating a safe and non-judgemental environmnet for people to show up just as they are.

Leisha Davis fell in love with yoga twenty years ago and her passion quickly led to teaching. She has learned from a wide variety of teachers and is grateful for the influence each has had on her practice and life. Leisha’s classes are a dynamic offering of meditative and playful movement, deeply grounded in breath awareness and infused with yoga philosophy. Her teaching style invites students to dive within and connect to their inherent luminosity. Leisha is also a life coach and the founder of Mindful Mama Living. Her mission is to inspire others to live with greater presence, ease and joy through the practices of yoga and mindfulness, so that each of us can show up for ourselves, our families and the world at large in peaceful and positive ways. Leisha spends the majority of the year in San Pancho, Mexico with her husband and two daughters.
