~ Inspire Movement Retreat ~

Savor a dream wellness vacation as you enter our Inspire Movement Retreat at Xinalani.

Located just 30 minutes from Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, and only accessible via boat,

you'll enjoy 8 days and 7 nights of dance, yoga, and meditation at this exclusive eco-resort

with retreat leaders, Vickie Saito and Al Wright.

Our retreat is open to solo travelers, partners, friend groups, and anyone

seeking to deepen their relationship with themselves through mindful movement.




Each day you'll move in stunning jungle studios surrounded by nature as you immerse yourself in Inspired Dance, Yoga, MELT Method classes, Yoga Nidra Sound Baths, and experiential movement workshops designed to rejuvenate you in body, mind, heart, and spirit. We teach our classes for all levels and offer adaptations and options to help you receive the most from your movement practice.

Our retreats provide plenty of free time every day. When you are not attending classes, you can enjoy the beauty and tranquility of the ocean, pamper yourself with a spa treatment, relax at the beachfront bar of Xinalani, or detox in the sweat lodge. For those who crave adventure, there are many group tours offered by Xinalani, such as swimming with dolphins, whale watching, canopy zip-lining, or waterfall excursions.

Xinalani Resort is located in the jungle and spreads out across mountainous terrain. Be prepared to climb stairs daily to reach the studios, restaurant, and rooms.

Xinalani's accommodations are truly breathtaking. All rooms are spacious, palm-thatched roofed cabanas built on stilts and elegantly furnished by local artisans, and have private bathrooms and ocean views.

Your retreat fee* includes your accommodations, 3 meals per day, transportation to and from the airport, as well as all movement classes and workshops.

At the ocean's edge and bordered by lush jungle, Xinalani’s beachfront restaurant offers a healthy menu and a unique outdoor dining experience (expect to see whales!). Your retreat includes three delicious healthy meals per day (vegetarian, fish, and chicken options offered) as well as a light breakfast option for early risers that offers a mix of granola, fresh fruit, Mexican coffee, and an assortment of teas.

"I attended the Inspire movement retreat this past winter. The retreat center site and the amazing service and food were

worth the trip itself. With that said the classes were the primary reason I decided to go back again.

The flow was perfect - a lovely blend of movement and relaxation. I can’t wait to go back and be with my

Lovely Nia friends and sisters." ~ Robyn M.
