Excursions are available to local sacred Mayan cenotes (underground and open-air rivers suitable for swimming), and the pyramid at Chichen Itza for the Spring Equinox (witness the amazing descent of the serpent shadow at this time).

Yoga classes will be held every morning and evening, the final class will be the morning of Saturday, March 22rd, followed by a fresh fruit breakfast. Check-out is 11am on Saturday. Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be provided Tuesday through Friday. In the case of excursions to Chichen Itza and the cenotes, a take-away lunch will be prepared for you. Please note, check-in/out times are approximate and we will accommodate your schedule.
You will love the food and feel satisfied! Raw, vegan, fresh, local & gluten-free food is my passion! I have experienced a retreat where food was limited, and it was not a nice experience! Don't worry, this will not be the case, I will ensure that you are happy! If you're new to raw cuisine and are concerned that you may want something more, no problem! Something that you crave can be prepared by the wonderful staff at Macan Che or myself, if you feel the need. We want you to be comfortable!
New to Yoga? That is fine! I'm very experienced at teaching all levels of ability. You will feel relaxed and welcome in the shaded outdoor teaching space, a beautiful palapa surrounded by gardens.
Please visit the Photo Gallery for photos of Hotel Macan Che, the secure and natural setting for this retreat. Macan Che is a walled-in and gated garden property. Spa services and traditional Mayan healing are available by appointment. You can relax in the shade or soak up the sun by the pool. You may wish to explore Izamal, and you should, it is steeped in history and contains Mayan ruins of it's own! Bicycles and horse drawn carriages are abundant and the people are lovely in this safe, slow-paced Mexican town.
