Mindful Vinyasa + Sacred Self-Care 

with Christine Chen & Von Love

Join us at Present Moment Retreats, an oceanfront yoga retreat center 30 minutes from Ixtapa, Mexico.

Heal your body, mind, and soul during a beach getaway, featuring twice-daily asana and healing workshops.

You'll have plenty of time to craft your own vacation too: tropical excursions, spa treatments, beach time, a Sweat Lodge, plus delicious food and company. We plan to release baby turtles into the ocean - new beginnings for all!

What yogis shared about last year's retreat: 

"Not to be all woo woo but it did change my life!" 

"Thank you so much Von and Christine for pouring your heart and soul into this experience!" 

"Always felt safe trying new things!" 

"Everyone got along, and it was a wonderful group of people."

location vibe

Present Moment Retreats is about 30 minutes north of Ixtapa, on the beach - close enough to town and some action, but not in the hub of the action. All rooms are quiet and serene, super close to the ocean.
