We invite you to join us on an inspiring and transformational journey of mind, body, heart and soulful connection.

A celebration, a ceremony, a returning home to yourself, caring for yourself, and getting to know yourself on levels maybe never previously thought possible.

Days infused with intuitive yoga, embodied movement, meditation, sound therapy, creative arts, and other earth-based practices designed to balance the physical, emotional, and energetic bodies.

An invitation to slow down, move inward, attune to Mother Earth’s rhythms, fold into her embrace, and rest in her nourishment, healing, and love.

Sacred moments connecting in community, sitting in ceremony, sharing in soulful conversations, healing laughter, tears, and joy.

Sacred offerings to hold you, inspire you, nourish you, and remember you back to the intuitive wisdom, aliveness, and freedom within you.

A transformational journey for anyone craving to reconnect to the sacredness of their life.

About the Instructors:


Joanna Benevides

Joanna is a yoga teacher, a Reiki Practitioner, Women’s Circle Facilitator, and a forever curious and fascinated artist of life. She is based out of Boston and Cape Cod Massachusetts, and has been teaching and facilitating yoga and wellness retreats, workshops and trainings for over 15 years. She led her first retreat at Haramara seven years ago, which sparked her love affair with Mexico’s extraordinary and sacred land, where she is blessed and humbled to call home for several months out of the year.

Forever fascinated by the creativity and intelligence of the body, she invites you to open to connect deeply with that intuitive wisdom as a portal towards healing, awakening, and remembering you back to that place of home within. Body, Mind, Heart and Soul.

Joanna’s classes are soulful, explorative and creative, emphasizing embodied movement, a deep listening, connection to oneself, to nature, and to the greater web of existence that we are all intrinsically a part of. You will move with your breath, shake-it-out, use your voice, receive and release, and find quiet, stillness and deep healing rest. She feels privileged for the opportunity to share this inner alchemy with all those who are called.
