Hey! I'm Parinaz

I know it can be hard finding the time for rest & self-care
when there are always other things on your mind or you’re just too tired from life.


That's exactly why I created this retreat...  
Because sometimes, all we need is a little break from the norm so we can recharge and connect with others
who understand what it means to live a balanced life.


You’ll spend the weekend surrounded by the natural beauty of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. 

You’ll wake up to crisp, clean air each day and
the peaceful silence of this sanctuary will fill you with relaxation and   

I’m so excited to take this journey with you!

This was life-changing. 

I've been on several retreats and this one gave me a breakthrough I've never experienced before. 

I'm ready to sign up for next year!

This was my first yoga retreat, and I found everything in it non-threatening. It was mentally & physically enlightening. 

Bryan N.

The way Parinaz structures everything allows you to get so much out of the experience. I had major break throughs on this retreat.
