About the Event
Join Mandy Wozniak and Nicole Curcio in the jungle as we make time for art, yoga, community, beachtime and sunshine! We’ll spend seven nights and seven days at Tailwind Jungle Lodge in San Pancho, Nayarit, Mexico, as we shake off the cold winter blues and Capture the Glow!
Our small retreat community will practice art and yoga together in a safe and welcoming environment. Whether you’re a professional artist or yogi, or you’ve never picked up a paint brush, or stretched on a matt, there’s sure to be something inspirational for every skill level.
The art portion of our retreat, is about making time to experiment and capturing the inspiration you'll find by unplugging and exploring new surroundings. We'll meet as a group and talk about art journaling, personal creative aspirations, and share ideas about how to get unstuck. We’ll carry our sketchbooks along on our adventures and I encourage you to take notes and sketch throughout our week together. Travel journaling is a great way to document experiences and inspiration. The goal is to relax and allow yourself time to create, so you can translate your experience into new artwork at home, or have a whole journal of your sketches to remind you of your time in Mexico. Some materials will be provided for you, but a supply list will be posted as we get closer.
If you're looking for a cushy, luxury retreat, this is NOT the retreat for you, but…
If you enjoy being outdoors, close to nature and a bit of roughing it, you've come to the right place! What’s roughing it in this context? Some of the casitas have compost toilets adjacent to them. There will be bugs, and lizards, and birds and critters (coati or tejon’s) close by; you’ll likely hear them foraging at night. Most of the casitas have at least one wall open, some are partially open on all sides, which means you can hear the ocean and jungle sounds, but it also means sleeping under mosquito nets and hearing the other jungle sounds. There is no Wifi throughout most of the lodge, but you can catch a signal by climbing many stairs up to the office. Town is a 3 mile hike, or drive away. There are dirt roads and trails and steep stairs. LOTS and Lots of stairs (your calves will get a killer workout). But there will also be amazing ocean and jungle sounds and views. A mostly secluded beach, a short 1.5 mile hike away. An outdoor yoga platform, which will also become a part time art studio, and so much more. If you’re still with us, read on…
