Dancing Through Life at Playa Xinalani!

A Yoga, Nia, Tai Chi, Movement, Breath and Relaxation Vacation In Mexico!

December 2-9, 2023


Join Somatic Educators Adelle Brownlee Brewer and Joanie Brooks for their 4th        annual restorative week of Yoga, Tai Chi, Nia, Meditation, Breath, Relaxation and FUN

at Xinalani Retreat, an exclusive eco-resort located just 20 minutes from Puerto Vallarta, Mexico!  Only accessible by boat, Xinalani (pronounced she-na-la-nee) is a sanctuary of wellness and serenity! 

 Each day, wake up to the sound of the ocean from your breathtaking ocean-front room. Be nourished by delicious and healthful local cuisine, enjoy daily Yoga,

Nia and Tai Chi classes in the stunning yoga spaces surrounded by nature and

the ocean, indulge in a spa treatment, detox in a Temazcal (ancient sweat lodge),

or simply relax and soak up the beauty of your surroundings.


Do as much or as little as you desire!  You can also fuel your adventurous spirit by signing up for any one of Xinalani’s jungle adventures or eco-tours, including canopy zip lining, swimming with dolphins, jungle treks, and more!


Set at the edge of the ocean and bordered by lush jungle, Xinalani’s beachfront restaurant offers a healthy menu and a unique outdoor dining experience.

Your retreat includes three delicious healthy meals per day

(vegetarian, fish, and chicken options offered) as well as a light breakfast option

for early risers.


This retreat is for EveryBody - come with your partner, friends or alone!



Your retreat fee includes 7 nights accommodations, 3 meals per day, transportation to and from the airport, use of snorkeling and kayaking equipment as well as all classes offered by Adelle and Joanie.
