Join Nena and Gaby for a 5-day Yoga Retreat at Playa Viva in Zihuatanejo, Mexico. This experience is about awakening your higher self and reconnecting to what is elemental—within us and beyond us.

By focusing the mind, moving the body, and controlling the breath you will learn and experience yoga as a lifestyle. Leave your mat with a new vision, a new flow, and a new perspective.
