We aren’t sure we’ve ever been this excited.
With the incredible connections formed by the recent Mermaid Yogis challenge on Instagram, we decided to create a totally amazing, one of a kind, Magical Mermaid Yogis Mexico Retreat hosted by Stoked Yogi founder Amelia Travis, and Zen Girl founder Mandy Burstein and sponsored by our favorite wild dreamers, the babes over at Teeki.
What started as a simple conversation – how amazing it would be to connect with all of these inspiring women in real life – has become a reality with our November retreat to Sayulita, Mexico for eight days of surfing, stand up paddle boarding, yoga, and radical lifestyle inspiration and transformation.
This bohemian gypsy adventure will take us to Sayulita, Mexico – where we will nourish ourselves, indulge and explore, breathe it all in, and love it all out. Eight days of yoga on land and sea with your fearless mermaid leaders, equipped with everything you need to dive fully into the present moment. Immerse in local culture and get an insider’s guided tour of all our favorite secret spots. This retreat is designed for the adventurous mermaid yogi who believes in being barefoot and sun-kissed, lives by the sun and loves by the moon, and finds joy in venturing outside her comfort zone with a heart full of wanderlust.

Dining Fit For a Mermaid Queen

Our home for the week is nestled at the north end of Sayulita, the crown jewel of the Rivera Nayarit coastal corridor.

From art galleries to live music nightlife, Sayulita has something for everyone. Holistic healing is available at the local spas, and the flower child fashionista will find shopping to suit even the most eclectic style maven.
Choose Joy. Live Wild and Free
This retreat will be more than a vacation – this is a lifetime experience to connect with soul sisters from all over the world – to swim naked in the ocean at midnight – to let loose and roam free with sand in your toes and salt water running through your veins.
