Riviera Maya, Mexico

Come Home to Aïa Thanksgiving Retreat is a 5-day experience designed to bring guests back in balance with their body, breath and nature, with a healing homecoming for the heart, soul and spirit. Poised perfectly before the busy holiday season, this is a gift for you to restore and refresh yourself with a thoughtful and meaningful alternative to the obligations of traditions that may no longer inspire you, or that shrink your spirit because of relationship issues or family dynamics.

Through guided Hatha Yoga practices, meditations, sound healing, and native Mexican wellness traditions like a Mayan clay ceremony and Temazcalli, a healing steam lodge, participants will experience deep relaxation and connection, leaving them refreshed, restored and renewed. This unique retreat experience is designed to inspire and embody gratitude and Thanksgiving as a healing spiritual practice. 

 

"WE PRAY THAT WE MAY GROW IN OUR UNDERSTANDING OF THE NATURE OF ALL LIVING BEINGS AND OUR CONNECTEDNESS WITH THE NATURAL WORLD; THAT WE MAY BECOME EVER MORE FILLED WITH GENEROSITY OF SPIRIT AND TRUE COMPASSION AND LOVE FOR ALL LIFE..."

What our guests say:

Attending Enicia’s yoga retreat in Tulum was one of the best things I have ever done for myself. We rush through life and take care of everyone else, but sometimes we just need to live in the moment and take care of ourselves. And this is what Enicia helps you do. The workshops she ran were truly rewarding, and I left the retreat with a much more positive outlook on life. I recommend this retreat to anyone in need of a true vacation from every day life; you will actually return home awakened, refreshed, and very happy.” 

-Kate Monaghan, New York, New York

“I was overwhelmed with work and the intensity of New York City, when I stumbled upon Enicia’s Tulum yoga retreat online. I had never traveled alone before, and the welcoming vibe I received the moment I arrived immediately made me feel at home. Enicia catered to the needs of each of us beautifully in our daily yoga practice. Her workshops were eye-opening and productive, building a special connection between us and nourishing our souls. I walked out of this retreat a changed person. I was more in touch with my creativity and my heart was filled with peace and calm. Enicia helped me find my breath again and gave me the tools to maintain this peace in my daily life, and for that I am immensely grateful.” 

-Jennifer Bowles, Queens, New York

"The Sanadora retreat in Tulum is one of the best spiritual experiences I've had in my life. Enicia is an inspiring teacher that knows how to guide you to connect your soul with Mother Nature gently and wisely. I enjoyed every minute of it and would recommend this retreat to anyone who is looking for a truly magical experience."

-Blanca Garcia, Mexico City, Mexico

I enjoyed the morning heartfelt Yoga with a view of the turquoise waters just mere steps away, the spiritual ceremonies, clay bath, Sound Journey, cenote excursions, shopping in tiendas in town of Tulum, and a visit to the jungle school of small children who we donated some academic supplies. One of the most enjoyable things was the spa treatments received from Paolo. The Thai Massage was the absolute best I had ever gotten and left me tingling with currents of energy, yet completely relaxed. I highly recommend this retreat, The add-on spa treatments by Paolo, the love and light put into its creation by Enicia and Paolo. Oh, and don’t even get me started on the excellent home made, fresh, exquisite cuisine!

-Jacquie Freeman, Riverside, California

"I feel like I'm going home with a magical tool kit inside of me!"

-Heather Soares, Palm Springs, California

"I want to express my gratitude for the blessings received during the retreat with Sanadora Sanctuary. At the age of 75, I released deep hidden emotions, anxiety, fear of deep waters, and claustrophobia with the support of a genuine, trusting, and spiritual teacher and loving, caring staff in a sacred, safe atmosphere surrounded by luscious nature. I have gained 'a peace that passeth all understanding.' I encourage you to take the opportunity to spend time with Enicia and team in Retreat."

-Maria Gonzalez, Dallas, Texas

"I first attended the November 2018 Sanadora Sanctuary retreat as a guest yoga teacher - and I am now planning a third annual retreat with Sanadora Sanctuary. I have attended other yoga retreats, but this one felt decidedly different. Because of the small group size and having the entire space to ourselves - the house, the grounds, the amenities - our group felt very welcomed and taken care of. What separates Sanadora Sanctuary retreats from others is how incredibly curated everything feels. All meals, excursions, ceremonies, etc., are created in-house by Enicia and Paolo. More than a retreat, it feels like you have been invited to stay a week at their home, where you are shown the most amazing aspects of their beloved Tulum. Once you attend one retreat with Sanadora Sanctuary, you will begin to crave another!"

-Leslie Boyd, E-RYT 500, Fallbrook, California
