Tulum Yoga Retreat 2023 – Purposeful Intentions

The end of the year is such a good time to review, reset, and rejuvenate. One of my favourite and most energetically powerful areas in the world – Tulum, Mexico – is home to so much beauty and holds a vibration like no other.

When: December 1-6, 2023

Where: Holistika Tulum

Located in the middle of the jungle, Holistika offers all the benefits that being surrounded by nature provides. In conjunction with all its spaces, yoga classes, dailiy activities, and magical people, it is the perfect place to disconnect and reconnect with your soul.

I wanted to create something really meaningful and mindful. We all need an extremely healing and intentional reset after the last 3 years, something with an element of restoration, as well as a deep sense of transformation. I curated this retreat in such a way to completely release negative and stagnant energy both physically, and energetically with a schedule that includes a special guest, Veronica Ciandre, and Alessandra Montana.

Veronica is the owner of iSOLA, wearable medicine using semi precious stones, raw crystals, sterling silver and gold, all pieces are beaded in a sacred, geometrical mathematical pattern found throughout nature called the ‘Fibonacci Sequence, also known as ‘The Divine Code’, ‘The Pattern of Creation’ and ‘God’s Language in Numbers’. Exposure to the pattern facilitates the resonance of balance, beauty and harmony when worn, and exponential growth when used to focus the mind in meditation.

Alessandra Montana is a sound alchemist, sound therapist and an incredible force. She began practicing yoga with Saul David Raye, and embraced Bhakti Yoga and Atma Yoga, offering all her thoughts and actions to a higher power as a source of help and guidance. She moved to Tulum in 2010 and begain teaching full time after finishing her yoga certification. In 2012 she expanded her vision into the magic world of sounds and vibrations. and she started to share this wonderful medicine of overtones and magic through the magic powers of the Gong, Singing “Himalayan” and crystal bowls, crystal pyramids, harmonium to mention few.

Fully in love with this part of her journey, Alessandra took on the studies with pioneers in sound experiences including Don Conreaux, Methab Benton, Philippe Garnier, Lea Garnier, Richard Rubis, Tito La Rosa, Ramji Singh, Silvia Nakkach and Baird Hersey. 5 years later, Alessandra certified as a sound therapist. She, now , regularly presents sound offerings privately and publicly in Tulum -Mexico- (Sanara’, Casa Malca, Yaan Spa, Selina and Nomade to mention few) , France, Milano (Italy) and Los Angeles (California) or wherever Spirit guides her. In 2014, she founded SUHUY (sa-gra-do) Medicine for Body and Soul that lasted for few years and guided her into a deeper solo project “One Love , One Sound” . In 2018, she started assisting her teachers and as well under the blessings of the Grand Gong Master Don Conreaux , she started offering Sound Healing and Gong Training to share the wisdom & Gong legacy received by Don by training others in merging into the journey of sounds and vibrations with awareness and heart power. In 2019, she started her journey into the study of Gong Mastery with Grand Gong Master Don Conreaux and Gong Nidra with Master Methab Benton. She travels and works in Mexico, Los Angeles and Europe. Her work has been mentioned in Yoga Journal USA, 66 minutes ( M6- French television), New York Times, Vogue Uomo ( Italy) to mention a few and she was chosen as sound therapist for Grateful Dead , Matthews Band and the Phish. Alessandra still lives in the outskirt jungle of Tulum, the place where dreams come true, and still loves beautiful clothes.
