Yoga and Mindfulness Retreat

Mexico, March 11-19, 2023

Luxury meets Ancient Culture

The retreat will be held at the luxurious La Buena Vibra Retreat & Spa Hotel, an enchanting oasis nestled at the foot of the magical Tepoztlan mountains.

Set in a breath-taking natural environment within the Sacred Valley of Atongo, it is rich with history, mythology and charm, creating its very own magical paradise.

What you will experience


Enjoy a variety of yoga styles led by Mariel Witmond including Mandala, Vinyasa, Yin and Hiit Yoga combos. Stretch and strengthen as you are guided out of your overactive mind and into meditative flows, combining breath and movement to beautifully curated playlists.


La Buena Vibra is made up of various areas that adapt to the different needs of its guests. Enjoy two pools, three Jacuzzis, 2 temazcales, a full wellness center with 6 treatment rooms, 2 vapor rooms, a sauna, a beauty salon and gym. Not to mention 4 yoga/meditation studios!

Local Treats

Immerse yourself in the sacred lands and traditions of Tepoztlan, Mexico. We will hike and explore the surrounding sacred mountains and ancient pyramid, and have one group dinner in town to enjoy the local food at one of Mariel’s favorite restaurants!


The hotels chef has created an original menu that incorporates fresh fruits and vegetables from the hotel’s own organic gardens and orchards as well as the local market place. Food included will all be vegetarian with the option to order a la cart at your own expense.


As part of our opening and closing ceremonies, you will get to partake in local traditions such as a Temazcal (a native Indian sweat lodge ceremony that guides you through four doors associated with four elements and emotions – a great way to get to know each other) and a closing Fire Ceremony.

The program will start at 1pm on Sunday so it would be ideal for your to arrive on Saturday evening. We end the retreat on Sunday afternoon and will arrange for everyone to be dropped back to Mexico City before dinner time. You have the option to fly out of Mexico city that evening or you could spend a night in Mexico City. I can help to arrange day trips to see Mexico’s largest pyramids, etc.

The tempreture can get up to 30 degrees Celsius during the day but it can drop to about 12 in the evenings and early morning so please bring warm clothes!

Yes, please be sure to alert Mariel to any allergies, intolerances or preferences with sufficient time prior to the start of the retreat so she can inform the chef.
