Play inMotion Retreat
Malinalco, Mexico
An all-inclusive play and movement retreat led by Daphne Zahara on the mystical Valley of Malinalco. 
May 26th - 29th, 2023

Play is the pleasure of being inventive, imaginative, and trying something new. Play is the infinite testing ground for creativity.

When we are kids, we play without reservation or judgment. It is a natural part of how we both interact with the world and learn. Yet, adults forget to play.

Play in Motion Retreat is an invitation to tap into your creativity through movement to create a time and space for play.

Mystical location

Southwest of Mexico City, there is Mexico's little-known mountain town of Malinalco. Dubbed by some as the new San Miguel de Allende "Mali" a very cool town with deep Indian cultural roots and sites to explore, including Aztec ruins—a temple carved directly into stone.

Surrounded by mountains and lush vegetation, Villa Los Apantles is a very special house full of mysticism and Mexican art.
