April 14-20, 2018

The mission behind this retreat – Be Love: Return to Intrinsic Rhythm – is to nourish the spiritual warrior in each of us.

Join my co-leader Corinna Rae and me for a beach yoga retreat in beautiful Tulum, Mexico at the all-inclusive Swiss Family Robinson-reminiscent resort of Amansala in April of 2018. This is a chance to explore the Mayan ruins and jungle landscape of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula on the Caribbean Sea, all while deepening your yoga practice, absorbing a gentle ocean breeze, and setting life-affirming daily intentions.

Tulum Mexico Yoga Retreat Leigha ButlerThe mission behind this retreat – Be Love – is to nourish the spiritual warrior in each of us. As yoga practitioners, we are already inclined to lead lives of compassionate action, and we aim to support you as you develop and awaken the super soul-dier within. Think of this week as a time to renew your commitment to letting love light the way.


We strike a balance between solo, reflective time and social time. ThorSunrise in Tulum Mexico Yoga meditation retreat leigha butlerough self-care practices, intelligently sequenced warming flows, (optional) morning meditations, soft afternoon yoga, and powerful daily intentions, we will become the embodiment of love and the bricklayers of a cooperative human future.

The sea in Tulum is as bright an aquamarine color as you can imagine. The sunrise boasts pastels and contrasting colors that are tough to capture on camera, and the friendly community features comfortable amenities, fantastic food, and many healing services, from massage to clay baths to sweat lodges.

We are experienced, mindful teachers who will meet you where you are at in the practice. Morning classes will be open-level Vinyasa style, appropriate for most practitioners with some yoga experience. Experienced practitioners will be invited to deepen the practice according to the body’s needs. Beginner students will be shown how to modify. Afternoon classes will be cooling, gentle, and restorative-style classes. You are welcome to take both classes or just one. The time in Tulum is YOURS!

Airport Code – “CUN” – Tulum is located about 75 miles south of the Cancun Airport. It takes about an hour and twenty minutes to get to our resort.

Getting from Cancun to Tulum – Amansala Resort is very happy to arrange transportation for you from the airport to the resort. It’s a good idea to confirm this when you book or ask about alternatives. There is a public bus, for instance; but we believe the resort’s shuttle is worth the price.

In & Around Tulum – Most everything is accessible in Tulum by foot or by bicycle, including the Mayan Ruins.



Note: Retreat pricing does NOT include air travel.

Non-Refundable Deposit
