Join Vickie Saito and Al Wright for 7 days and 7 nights of Inspired Dance, Yoga and meditation at Xinalani Retreat, an exclusive eco-resort located just 30 minutes from Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

Move your body in stunning yoga spaces surrounded by nature as you immerse yourself in daily Inspired Dance and Yoga classes, MELT Hand and Foot Treatments, and movement workshops designed to rejuvenate and inspire body, mind and spirit.

Find sanctuary as you soak up the beauty and bliss of the ocean, indulge in a spa treatment, detox in the sweat lodge, or relax at Xinalani’s beachfront restaurant. You can fuel your adventurous spirit by signing up for any one of Xinalani’s jungle adventures or eco-tours available each day, including canopy zip lining, swimming with dolphins, jungle treks, and more!

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.

All rooms have private bathrooms and ocean views. All reservations are made through Inspire Movement Arts, NOT through Xinalani.


One thing that makes Xinalani unique is that it’s only accessible via water taxi. For your convenience, your transportation to and from the airport to Xinalani is included in your retreat fee. This includes transfer via taxi to the pier of API Terminal Marítima in Marina Vallarta (15 min) as well as transfer by boat from the Marina Vallarta pier to Xinalani (45 min).

You are responsible for booking your own airfare. Book an arrival flight that arrives no later than 3:00 pm and a departure flight that takes off no earlier than 11:00 am. Note: Please do not book your flight until your retreat deposit has been paid.


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 and dolphins). 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. Our participants loved the food so much that many took a cooking class with the resident Chef.

"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.


"This Inspire Movement retreat in Xinalani was a true step away from winter into a beautiful,

renewing experience in a magnificent setting. The leaders were welcoming and inspiring.

Vickie and Allison modeled kindness and collaborative leadership as they taught.
