“To be fully alive, fully human, and completely awake is to be continually thrown out of the nest.”
— Pema Chödrön
It’s a good sign when a retreat has been returning year after year, and even more so that for the past eight years there have been back-to-back weeks!
Thoughtfully created in Troncones, Guerrero; one of the last sacred and authentic destinations in Mexico, Present Moment Retreat offers the opportunity for physical, spiritual, and mental rejuvenation through yoga, meditation, and the healing arts. Renew your spirit while meditating on their private beach; revive your energy with sunrise and sunset yoga with yogi Ted Roseen, and then reward yourself as you dine on mouth-watering gourmet cuisine. At night, relax in your private seaside cabana, take a walk on the beach, cool off in the pool, or check out the nightlife in one of the nearby towns.
Located just north of Ixtapa, with the amenities of a five-star hotel and the privacy of a deserted island, Present Moment Retreat uniquely combines the luxuries of a health spa and beach resort with the tranquility of an intimate yoga center.

Ted Roseen has been teaching his unique blend of yoga around the Twin Cities for years. This mix of the biomechanics of Iyengar, strong poses and repetition of Ashtanga, and the gentle flow of Vinyasa creates a fun, yet challenging balance for students of any level. As a marathoner, triathlete, and rock climber, Roseen understands the importance of an open body, the benefits of a positive and quiet mind, and the powerful resource that is tapped when that open body and quiet mind are connected. But, it’s Ted’s sense of humor and lightness of heart that sets him apart from other teachers, a true believer in tapping into your inner playground. He has studied under a number of gurus, including Saraswathi Rangaswamy, daughter of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, India, and local yogi Dec Barry. Ted was acknowledged for his efforts and abilities in yoga in the Mpls/St. Paul Magazine “Best of the Twins Cities 2007.”

Your Boutique Bungalow
Present Moment is the perfect antidote to the chaos of everyday life. Authenticity was imperative in the construction of every inch of this resort. Thus, all bungalows have an indigenous palapa thatched roof, hand-crafted in the Mexican tradition, and are furnished with a pillow top queen-sized bed, luxurious 400 count cotton bedding and a canopy of white linen.
With 5 deluxe bungalows and 3 family bungalows, somewhat blurring the lines between the indoors and out, with its amazing vantage points to the sea, gardens and pool, your accommodation will be the perfect place to rest yourself after a full day of yoga and surf at Present Moment. Just a 30 second walk the beach, let the sounds of the ocean lure you to sleep each night.
With 3 air-conditioned suites, for those seeking a little more similarity to the comforts of home. Centrally located, you will be just steps away from the beach, amazing yoga classes, massage, and fine dining. If you enjoy strolling the shore at sunrise, these stunning bungalows will have you on your way in no time. Hand-crafted and beautifully appointed, a true home away from home.
About Troncones & Getting Here
At the heart of charming Troncones Beach, nestled between the lush mountains of the Sierra Madre and the sparkling Mexican Riviera, Present Moment Retreat combines the ambience of nature’s grandeur with personally challenging mind-body work, set in harmony on beautifully-landscaped tropical grounds.
Troncones Beach is a small, recently-developed community situated on some 3 miles of pristine Pacific beach – a strand of white sand punctuated by occasional rock outcroppings often harboring tidepools teeming with fascinating saltwater life. The charming village is home to a small school, a public library (donated by generous local residents for education of the village’s children), a church, several dry goods outlets and a few other small provisioning services for essential items. All of these are couched within a traditional and tropical Mexican ambience.
