Dare To Go For It!

March 27th ~ April 2nd, 2016

If you are ready to manifest a life attuned to your heart’s Deepest Longings and unleash the most vibrant version of you, then join Mariko in gorgeous Riviera Maya for a most inspired, purposeful vacation!

Feeling the powdery white sand between your toes, you gaze out into the ridiculously blue waters and drink it all in – the warm sun, the lightness in your body, the breeze that gently rustles the palm trees. You’ve just practiced yoga and meditated with some of the most amazing, growth-seeking people you can imagine…and every cell is hearing the call of your heart now.

Where are you – you ask?

Why you’re in Puerto Morales, in the sweetest spot between Cancun and Tulum (with all the beauty and warm weather but not the tourist stampede…) at the Manifest in Mexico Adventure Retreat, relaxing before your morning adventure is about to begin!

Intrigued? Let me tell you more….

Over 6 delightful nights and 7 days we’ll be attuning to and opening up to that space of Abundance through the practice of Fluid Vinyasa yoga practice, meditation, visualization and journaling.

I believe that if you have a true, deep desire to do, be, have or give something to the world, then the Universe must answer that call sooner of later.

Let’s make than sooner, shall we? When like-minded, growth-oriented people come together to share and support each other’s dreams, there is a powerful confluence of energy that can accelerate our dreams’ manifestation.


This Retreat is for you if:

  • You are feeling the itch to explore a new way of living and being.
  • You are not sure how to begin your search, and you lack the support to get started.
  • You feel the need to recharge and reconnect with Inner Guidance.
  • You believe that the best way to start manifesting your dreams is to start living it as soon as possible! img3c
  • You love combining Yoga and Adventure Travel.
  • You value Health, and Well-being on every level.
  • You are called to connect with other Kindred Spirits who are also on a journey of self-healing, and discovery.

So bring your dreams to this fabulous paradise! It’s the perfect way to moveforward towards that which you seek. When you start living your dreams in the present, it sends a powerful message to your subconscious that you do in fact have the power to make anything happen

Location & Venue:

Puerto Morelos in Riviera Maya – halfway between Cancún and Playa del Carmen, Puerto Morelos  still retains its quiet, charming small-town feel despite the building boom north and south of town.

Brilliantly contrasted stripes of bright green and dark blue separate the shore from the barrier reef – a tantalizing sight for divers and snorkelers, while inland a series of excellentattractions beckon the adventurous from the Tulum ruins and ancient Mayan pyramids to fine dining and snorkeling in the second largest coral reef in the world!
We’ll be spending six nights and seven sun-filled days taking in the vast blue ocean, the ancient Mayan ruins, exploring the ocean and enjoying delicious, healthy cuisine at Casa Om, a beautiful abode, made for and run by Yogis.
Our beautiful Yoga retreat center is just 16 miles (27 km) south of Cancun international airport, and exactly 1 minute 29 seconds’ walk from the turquoise beach (faster if you walk like New YorkersJ.)
