The Butterfly Yoga Retreat

MARCH 2020 ~ Macheros, Mexico

~ Kathy F.
TESTIMONIAL  "The Butterfly Yoga retreat was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. Every part of the weekend was so special and amazing in ways that most vacations/retreats could not ever match. While the accommodations were not luxurious, they were very comfortable and the food was so authentic and delicious. Jules is the best yoga teacher and a wonderful host. She has the remarkable ability to cater to the individual needs of every guest. The views during our outdoor yoga sessions were so spectacular that I continue to visualize them whenever I do sun salutes. Visiting the butterflies was so moving and beautiful. It is not easy to get to Macheros but it is well worth the effort. I cannot imagine a more perfect weekend if you enjoy yoga, nature and/or adventure.  ~ Kathy F.

I’m so excited to announce my second annual Butterfly Yoga Retreat! It’s an eco journey that will take us to the beautiful hills three hours outside of Mexico City to see the famous monarch butterfly migration. Together we will meditate on historic hillsides, soaking up the restorative energy of one of the most magical nature wonders on earth, sought by ecologists and nature lovers world wide. We’ll be staying at a quaint bed and breakfast, that sits perfectly within the peasant village of Macheros, nestled in a picturesque valley beneath the butterfly mountain. It’s a TripAdvisor Excellence award-winning spot that happens to be co-owned by a former yoga student of mine, who collaborates with me to make this a memorable yoga meets monarch journey. Each day will be filled with calming yoga, meditation, hikes and horseback to the butterfly sanctuary, discussions on Monarch conservation, deliciously authentic Mexican meals, and astounding sunsets and star gazing - all leaving you more restored, educated and inspired.

 

 

To give you a picture, I’ve attached a sneak peek of the beauty of these butterflies in motion. I can’t wait to see them again. They are life changing!

TESTIMONIAL  Jules is the best yoga teacher I have ever had! She is very encouraging and funny and also provides individual attention and critique. It was much more helpful to me than the usual classes because she points out areas where I could adjust my pose or suggested ways to get the full stretch in a manner that my body could handle without getting hurt. The location was breathtaking. The bnb features homestyle meals surrounded by a scenic, non-commercialized village. There are great sunrise views on the roof of the bnb as well as beautiful sunsets on their lawn. I had so much fun riding a horse up to the mountain, and the butterflies were amazing. It is an out of this world experience to be standing in the sunlight surrounded by these beautiful, spiritual monarch butterflies. What a unique trip!  ~ Betsy C.
