Playa del Secreto


This 5-day retreat can be extended up to one week as a yoga holiday (additional nightly bookings include daily morning tonic, 90-minute yoga class, meditation and after class detoxifying smoothie).
Taking Place at Playa del Secreto, Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo, Mexican Caribbean

FEBRUARY 13 – 17, 2020


Do your physical, intellectual or emotional bodies need a “Reboot” from any old, non-serving patterns, negativity/toxicity or limiting beliefs?

Are you ready to bring yourself to your own natural balance where you will function at your optimum to reach your full potential and establish routines that will make you stay on track with your goals and make your heart content?

Come to our Secret Beach, connect with the healing sound of the ocean and start a five-day detoxification on a physical, mental and emotional level, to restore your natural inner balance.

During our 5-day yoga retreat, you will practice energizing Yang style Yoga to strengthen and detoxify the body while enjoying an believable sunrise alongside the ocean, and enjoy a soothing, loving Yin practice at sunset where we create space in the body and get in touch with our emotions as our guide to what adjustments we should make in our lives to become who we truly want to become. 

Our Temazcal Ceremony, in line with Mayan Tradition, will allow you to let go of what no longer serves you. We will finish the ceremony with a rebirth jump into a beautiful, private cenote, a natural fresh water river, the entry point to an underground cave. Discover the hidden beauty of the Mayan Riviera further and join us for a guided snorkel tour through a cenote also.

During our yogic Samskara Wheel discussion, we will learn how patterns are formed, which may cause limiting beliefs and prevent us from reaching outside our comfort zone, and during Our Power of Habit talk, we will design a daily routine for you to implement upon your return home to help you increase your productivity and happiness. Learn about the healing power of an Alkaline Diet and Conscious Eating during our Lunch n’ Learn.

With our additional healing practices such as pranayama, meditation, mantra chanting, the heart-connecting Breath Circle Ceremony, Yoga Nidra, journaling, as well as our home-cooked, anti-inflammatory, plant-based diet, you will naturally slow down to purge what no longer serves you, and develop new daily habits to stay on a path of long-term health and vitality. For your gastronomic experience, you will have the opportunity to dine out at three, hand-picked restaurants. You can keep your experience entirely plant-based, or you can venture out to try a local specialty.

Come alone, with a friend or your partner, this retreat works for any relationship status!

Extend your stay by up to one week, enjoying yoga and meditation in the morning, and exploring your surroundings, or simply relaxing or taking additional classes during the rest of the day.

Casa Del Mar Bonito offers Zen-like resplendence right on the white sands of the Mexican Caribbean. You will be located in Playa Secreto, or “Secret Beach,” a gated community situated on perhaps the most beautiful glistening ocean front in the Mayan Riviera. The sands stretch for about a mile with about fifteen private villas lining the beach. It’s a hidden tropical getaway.

The forty-five foot pool is surrounded by fountains, gardens, lounge areas, tables and a marvelous “in-pool” lounge. The pool is located in an unobservable courtyard to provide maximum privacy. The living room is open, airy and offers a spectacular view of the ocean and the pool.

The exclusive custom made interiors and design of Casa Del Mar Bonito blend an eclectic variety of features including marble sculptures and fountains from Beijing, mosaic marble floors from Bali, hand carved mahogany doors from Indonesia and a conservatory brick domed ceiling completed by Mexican artisans. The pool tile was produced in Japan, and the glass shower doors hand etched in Java. A ruby red, crystal chandelier from India adds to the romantic atmosphere around the beautiful mosaic marble top dining table.

Playa del Secreto is a gated sanctuary where you will find a beautiful residential community where villa owners are committed to preserving the area as an immaculate luxury destination.

Four bedrooms are available; three (Ocean Breeze, Mayan Princess and the Palm Tree) have one king and one single bed; The Buddha has two single beds. The first three rooms are available on a single, double or triple occupancy basis. Each room has its own bathroom, the former three also its own private beach access, The Buddha its own sauna!

Casa del Mar Bonito also has its own garden with a giant chess board.

The Peace Temple, a wooden gazebo on the beach, serves as an outdoor yoga studio, a sanctuary to read a book in a hammock, or dine while listening to the sounds of the ocean.

Once capacity has been reached at Casa del Mar Bonito, additional housing will be arranged at a next door villa until the retreat capacity (15) has been reached. The additional housing rates will be quoted then and will depend on the overflow group size. All retreat activities will take place at Casa del Mar Bonito.

Hana Sykorova, RYT 500, RYT 85 Prenatal, Reiki Level I

Hana draws from a variety of yoga traditions, weaving in shamanic philosophy, aromatherapy, breathwork, reiki and sound within intention-set classes, in line with her Kula Collective training. As an Ironman athlete, she understands the importance of body recuperation and specializes in yin yoga, a slower approach to yoga, stretching the body beyond the muscle to access the connective tissue, achieving benefits similar to acupuncture, and deep relaxation. As a holistic health coach, she has a deep interest in diet and its ability to heal the body. 

After her prenatal certification with Ojashvi Yoga Shala in Rishikesh, India, Hana started to also enjoy working with pregnant women with the understanding that samskaras, positive imprints, start to develop in the womb, and that practices such as pranayama, mantra chanting, visualization, meditation or yoga nidra have a profound therapeutic effect not only on expectant mothers and their babies. In addition to New York City, where she spent almost a decade after getting her MBA working in the corporate world, she is now an entrepreneur following her yoga calling and spends time between the Mayan and French Riviera, San Francisco, New York and her native Czech Republic.
