Location: Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

Dr Genieve Burley and team wish to welcome you to explore with them the nourishment of Body & Soul through Movement and Foods and a bit of magic along the way.

What is Sacred Suntan?

A 5 night Sanctuary Retreat based on the Mind, Body, Soul connection in which we merge our areas of expertise…Yoga, Food, and Mind practices. Oh and a bit of fun on the journey too. We would love to be guiding you through the many aspects we see as being important to living a healthy life: from daily yoga practices, meditations, fitness and games. As a society we find we often look at one but not the other. Genieve's goal is to get you feeling healthy in your best body ever and still have a few laughs, margaritas, and suntans along the way.

What to expect?

We find that like attracts like, and when there’s a positive charge, you get a positive back. What this means to you is that we expect that over the course of your stay you will feel fuelled, nurtured, nourished, stretched, and strengthened. All the core principals that are integral to a better body, is how we go about treating full body wellness and what sacred suntan means to us

…Expect to learn and use your body as much as you want or as little as you want. Dr Genieve’s expertise in Yoga and Chiro brings along complete awareness of full body respect and workouts.

…Expect a lot of food. Healthy food does need not be boring. Our last retreat with Kate Horsman inspired a delicious menu that created the vibration for the retreat. We will carry on her gourmet legacy, she taught Guille some great recipes.

…Expect to laugh, we may not be comedians, but we know how to laugh, and this is just as important part of health, our attitude.

…Expect sun, unless you want an umbrella…then you do you ;)

You can also pay a $500 non-refundable deposit and pay the balance a month before the retreat, please enter your room number in notes.
