Rosarito, Baja Norte, Mexico

Deepen your yoga practice, learn to surf, relax, and enjoy Mexican food and culture! We’re so excited to bring an amazing group to Baja Mexico, an area we have loved exploring and enjoying for many years. We intentionally create a sober, healing environment so you can experience the natural and cultural beauty of Baja with open eyes and a clear head.

We’ve traveled extensively through Baja and we always long to come back for the chill vibes, delicious food, and gorgeous coastline. With opportunities for surfing, ziplining, hiking, and practicing Spanish, this retreat includes many ways to get our of your comfort zone. You can look forward to sunrise and sunset yoga flows on the gorgeous patio at Native Residence, and delicious, plant-based, locally-inspired meals! We don’t think you’ll ever want to come home.

Zach and I have traveled extensively in Mexico, especially in this area of Baja. If you haven’t been to Mexico before you can trust in our competency and Spanish speaking abilities as guides! Please let us know if you have any questions!

Since all retreat deposits and payments are used to secure venues, activities, and supplies, and since canceled spots require extra time and energy to re-fill, all deposits and payments are non refundable. In emergency situations, you may or may not be offered a credit for a future retreat or event, based on the decision of our team. Cancellations due to fear of travel are not transferable or refundable. Cancellations less than 1 month before your retreat are not refundable or transferable. We recommend travel insurance to protect your investment in the event you must cancel.

Carrie and Zach are incredible! My wife and I attended the retreat in Baja this year and it was truly so special. From morning yoga and meditation, to ziplining, surfing and the delicious food they provided- everything was perfect. I felt so safe and supported in the community they helped create for the long weekend. Definitely recommend booking a trip with these guys !! 😍
