Whole body healing-yoga, meditation and somatic

Nov 2 – 9, 2024

Join Colorado-based instructors, Angela Melzer and Cristen Malia for this heart-opening, expansive, fun and restorative week enveloped by the unique magic and beauty of the jungle at Haramara Resort in Sayulita, Mexico.

Engage in a powerful, playful, deeply nourishing, healing and rejuvenating time of deep re/connection to your magnificent self.

Cristen and Angela bring together years of experience teaching and practicing yoga, meditation, somatic therapy, mindfulness, nervous system healing and self-exploration. Angela will be offering her extensive knowledge in meditation, somatic therapy, and neuroscience, and Cristen offering intelligently sequenced flowing vinyasa yoga, healing and nourishing restorative yoga, and meditation and mindfulness. All of this supporting you in deepening a connection with yourself and wisdom within. This retreat fills the gap. It has more support and time commitment than a regular yoga retreat and yet is less intense than a therapeutic or spiritual meditation retreat.

Haramara Resort (https://haramararetreat.com/) was designed to flow with the nature that surrounds us. You can begin your day with a stroll to the beach or dip in the infinity pool. Meandering trails guide you through the jungle on your way to your bungalow. Open the door to find beautiful and comfortable amenities. All bungalows are open air with canopied beds. Security staff is available 24 hours a day and housekeeping staff will keep your room looking as beautiful as the first day you arrive.

We’ll have plenty of time for beach, play, and rest to heal and connect with our innermost intention while honoring any challenging experience and emotions you may be working with.

This retreat will include an exploration of mindfulness meditation, yoga, somatic awareness tools and psychotherapy techniques.

We explore practical tools, tips and experiences to help us work through the symptoms of anxiety, stress, trauma and grief. These techniques shed light on how to regulate our emotions and nervous system, connect to the wisdom of our body, mobilize stagnant energy, release deeply held tension and allow stuck processes to move forward. Through this embodied, trauma conscious experience we learn to approach ourselves with kind curiosity, opening to a deeper understanding of ourselves and leading to greater self-acceptance, self-kindness and ease.

  • Lodging
  • 3 meals per day starting with dinner on November 2, and ending with brunch on November 9.
