~ Rejuvenate your spirit on the wild coast of Mexico ~
With the sound of the waves permeating every experience, the luxurious beachside setting and award-winning center of Present Moment Retreat is the perfect environment to let go and unfold. This is a life-enhancing, transformative experience that combines the power of the Kula Collective 200-hour YTT with the renewing cleansing programs offered by Present Moment. By releasing in the body, we clear the mind and free the spirit, letting ourselves merge with the beauty of this magical place.
This training is held on the beautiful Pacific Riviera of Mexico, surrounded by epic surf breaks and rugged, sandy beaches. A short stroll away is a cultural gem, the quiet indigenous village of Troncones. With daily, stunning sunsets, calming, open-air spaces and delicious, health-giving cuisine, this is an experience to nourish the whole self.
This is a unique program due to its incredible venue and its emphasis on Shamanic Healing and Holistic Cleansing. The cleansing focuses on all aspects of wellness (physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual). We cleanse in order to reveal our truest self so that we step onto the mat as new yoga teachers able to guide from the pure essence of the Heart and Spirit.
Experience the sweetness of life while dancing to the heartbeat of the jungle beaches by moonlight. Swim in the warm waters of the Mexican Pacific and experience the magic of living your passion. Come join us and awaken the power of your spirit in this eco-friendly paradise on the wild coast of Mexico.
