Yoga + Astrology Retreat
In El Cuyo Mexico

Yoga Retreat Mexico

Join us on a spiritual journey into the world of astrology and yoga. Self discovery is the key to unlocking your full potential and this retreat opens the door to your blue print hidden in the cosmic vault of your birth chart. You will receive a personal one on one reading with Tara Jade Nichols, Evolutionary Astrologer with over 20 years of experience as well as yoga practices daily led by Tara that weave the teachings into the messages from the stars.


Our evenings will be shared exploring the north node, your souls purpose and gifts in this lifetime. Learning how to heal Chiron, your wound to carry from past lives. Tara gives an overview of the 2024 astrological events, and how to navigate the energies with grace. We will end with a powerful New Moon in Capricorn ceremony, using Tarot cards and weaving in the new wisdom of your potential.


Wild virgin beaches at your front door; open-air yoga practices with a view; delicious local cuisine to nourish the body; connection with nature to nourish the soul. Round out your days with an adventure into these Mayan lands. Explore the amazing pink lagoons of Las Coloradas, visit flamingos in their natural habitat, check out the town by bike, hop on a SUP or a kayak early morning when the sea is still to glimpse those first morning rays of sunshine peaking over the horizon, bask in the sunshine and swim in the Emerald Coast. We will visit the ruins of Ek Balam created by the ancient Mayans who studied the stars and lived by their teachings. Take a dip in a breathtaking cenote to cool off after a day of exploring. We have our incredible massage therapist with us to offer a healing massage in our open air studio and we wrap it all up with a mud ceremony to cleanse and refresh your body and soul.

Yoga + Astrology Retreat

in El Cuyo, Mexico


Join us with Tara Jade Nichols to dive deeper into the understanding of yourself through the stars. Astrology is an ancient divination tool for understanding the Self and your life experiences. Your North Node reveals the life lessons each soul came in to learn. The Nodes point toward our inherent gifts and growth opportunities. Astrology gives us the blueprint of our soul’s evolutionary potential. As we look at ourselves, we begin to see a greater pattern taking place. These themes are here to teach us, validating our inherent knowledge of the deeper meaning of life.

Guests will have private one-on-one time with Tara as well as group discussions and readings, yoga, amazing beach time and excursions. We will delve into the following topics on retreat :

Astrology Energy of 2024

Tara shares the most significant astrological events and dates happening in 2024. Be conscious of the upcoming transits helps you to know what’s coming and how to use the cosmic energies to your benefit.

North Node ~ Cosmic Destiny

We are all born with a innate gift to share found in your North Node placement. This points us in the direction of our highest calling. The North Node is also called your path of destiny that aligns you with the Soul’s purpose.

Chiron ~ The wound is where the light hits

The wounded healer is here to shine a light on that which needs to be healed. Often time it plays a karmic role in how are biggest life lessons manifest. Discover your Chiron placement to allow the healing to begin.

Personal readings

Tara offers a 30 min. personal chart reading, explaining the current events happening in your life. Whichever areas are activated will show what is unfolding in your life. Divine timing gives us insights; into when to act concerning: career, health, personal, or relationship questions. We better understand the year ahead and when events will occur.

Tarot ~ The Archetypes

In a sacred circle, each retreater will pull a Tarot card to receive answers from the ancient divination deck. The archetype you are embodying is sharing a deeper message to bring you clarity.

Vinyasa Yoga ~ Water flow

Tara began her yoga journey over 20 years ago, studying with profound teacher Shiva Rae. She embodies fluidity in her Vinyasa flow practice to bring in the feminine elements. She believes yoga is an act of prayer to the Self.

About El Cuyo, Yucatan

If you’re looking for a secluded beach yoga retreat in Mexico, look no further than this incredible offering in El Cuyo. This tiny fishing village located on the edge of the Yucatan peninsula is home to virgin beaches, flamingos, turtles, dolphins, countless birds and tons of sea life. Calling it paradise is not enough…the wild palm trees and dunes reach up to the edge of the sea while the gentle waves crash at the white sandy shore.  A plethora of stunning seashells line the beach and you can walk for miles without any disruptions but the kite boarders gliding by on the breeze.

We are trying our best to keep this special spot under the radar and enjoy it as long as possible before the tourist droves hear about its charms and come to find out what all the fuss is about. El Cuyo is believed to be the last hidden treasure on the Gulf of Mexico. Please keep your lips sealed as much as you can but come join us to live this amazing paradise while it lasts.

El Cuyo is located in the Río Lagartos nature reserve, between Holbox Island and the famous pink lagoons of Las Coloradas. It’s a quick and easy drive from Cancun airport but far enough away to really relax and take in the beach life. Your days will be spent lounging by the sea, experiencing nature at its finest and reconnecting with your inner self on your yoga mat by the sea. We can’t think of a better way to spend your retreat.

Travel Tips Guide

Yoga + Astrology Retreat

Travel Tips:

Fly into Cancun International airport (CUN). Please note that Cancun is in the state of Quintana Roo and El Cuyo is in the state of Yucatan. There is a time difference of 1 hour in the winter months for WINTER DAYLIGHT SAVINGS. Please make sure to double check the time zones well as you plan your travel.

From Cancun Airport to El Cuyo, travel time is approximately 2.5 hours door to door. Our drivers are very safe and reliable and we can arrange transfers from the airport to our beach house if you like. Please send along your full flight details and we will try to pair you with others traveling on a similar schedule to and from the retreat. Pricing depends on how many are in the ride.

Taxis are not allowed to wait outside the Cancun International airport at arrivals so a transfer needs to be arranged for a private car service pick up in advance or there is a local bus that takes you to El Cuyo. For arriving on your own to El Cuyo by bus you’ll need to go from the airport in Cancun to the town of Cancun station and then from there to Colonia Yucatan and then from there, you’d grab a taxi to El Cuyo. To find out more details check out this site.

There are no ATMS in El Cuyo and everything is better paid in cash as most places do not accept credit cards. Please plan to take out cash in Mexican pesos at the airport ATM upon arrival, pre-order currency from your bank back home and bring it with you or exchange your currency at the airport for Mexican pesos. Some places accept credit cards but it’s always a better idea to have cash just in case. That said there is not a lot of shopping in El Cuyo as it is a quiet town with beach and chill. Cash tips for staff are appreciated

Wifi is not the most reliable and does come in and out at times along with the electricity though it is getting better. If it does go out it usually comes back fairly quickly and offers a nice chance to sit back and relax and watch the stars. If you need super reliable internet please let us know to discuss this further. The idea is to unplug and be offline as much as possible.

There are no specialized stores and although there are a few pharmacies in the town if a specific drug is required, you would have to travel by car to the city of Tizimín about an hour away so please plan on bringing everything you might think you will need with you from home.
