Recharge and Renew yourself through yoga, sound healing and Temazcal while being held in the stunning, pristine nature of Tulum.

Find deeper self-love, purpose and reconnection to life as you are full-supported and nurtured.

Modern life can keep us busy achieving and striving for the things we desire. Yet, this pace of life often leaves us stuck over-doing and dysregulated without the proper tools to support our well-being.

We end up staying stressed out, over-thinking our decisions, and chronic tension builds up in our bodies.

Even if we are on a spiritual path and live consciously each day, we need to take time to immerse ourselves in environments that are truly rejuvenating.

By intentionally making time for retreat, we can reconnect to the things that matter most for our essence. We can find that spark of aliveness that rests in our hearts which makes life easeful and joyous again.

Our relationships improve, stress dissolves, and we manifest a life path filled with joy, inspiration and synchronicities.

By incorporating pristine nature and intentional yogic practices into a carefully-curated retreat, we reconnect back to natural rhythms. This increases our health and well-being by providing a holistic mind-body approach supported with expert guidance in a sanctuary-like setting.

So if you are looking to reveal your higher purpose, learn the best yogic tools to manage modern life, and do it all in the magical environment of Holistika Tulum

MEET YOUR INSTRUCTOR

ITZEL OLVERA

Itzel's yoga journey began at the end of 2008.

She was invited by a friend to try yoga for the first time at the opening of a small studio called Yoga by The Way, in Playa del Carmen:

“I never felt so lost, stiff, dumb, and completely soaked in sweat before, but after all that effort, I still remember perfectly that amazing and unique feeling in the last pose, the resting pose, and I felt deeply in love and in need of this practice that completely changed my world”.

Her teacher Ellen de Jonge taught Vinyasa to her students based on the foundation of Patanjali's Eight Fold Path.

Later on Itzel practiced the Primary Series of Ashtanga yoga under the guidance of Michael Gannon at Yogaloftplaya. In the end of 2017 she travelled to India to deepen her philosophy studies with Arvind Pare and Ashtanga yoga with Vijay Kummar in Mysore.

Always a student, Itzel keeps the practice going to keep the circle of learning and teaching flowing. Since more than 8 years Itzel shares energetic Vinyasa, Ashtanga and Yin Yoga at Holistika Tulum for people of all levels and ages. She is one of the most loved and followed teachers for locals and yoga travelers alike. With her own love for movement and self exploration, she encourages her students to practice with self-awareness.
