*sunglasses, sun hat, flip flops and beach wear
*regular clothes for dinners out, exploring town
*wraps or comfy clothing for cooler nights
*biodegradable sunscreen and insect repellant
*books & journals for down time
SOULCATION TRAVEL TIPS:
*we usually like to travel in comfy runners that we can then use when exploring, biking or climbing ruins
*pack extra underbelongs... these we find we never have enough of when we go from yoga to breakfast to the beach back to yoga, etc...
* we usually recommend that travelers bring their own yoga mat or a travel yoga mat and whatever props they normally use.

YOGA TEACHER | SOL TO SOUL YOGA RETREAT LEADER
My journey started over 15 years ago as a personal trainer. The shift into teaching and practicing yoga came at a time when the stress of running my business had wreaked havoc on my body, mind and spirit. Yoga played a starring role in healing my body and helping to manage an auto-immune disorder. It also led me to the beaches of Tulum where I hosted my first yoga retreat in 2010.
This was a life-changing experience. Two years and three yoga retreat later, I made the decision to pack up my life in Canada and drive via motor home to Tulum with my cat and dog as co-pilots.
Finding your passion, filling your soul with things beyond the material items in life, delving into the heart of what makes you unique, playing outside comfort zones... this is what 'soul sessions' are all about. Taking the time to really feed your soul what it needs to grow and flourish and feel fulfilled is what we'll dive into on this #soulcation retreat. And I can't wait to share this experience with you!
Sweet and spicy. Alignment based and inspired by my work with bodies over the past 15+ years. Yoga beyond the postures so that you discover how your body moves and how that transcends beyond the mat.
