Our mission is to cultivate a yoga travel community that inspires strength, courage, creativity, adventure and connection.  It is a community you return to again and again.

Twenty years ago, my meditation teacher Joni Zweig (Cirasmita) gave me my meditation name, Jayalila. In 2011, eleven women traveled to San Pancho, Mexico, and Jayalila Retreats was born. The women inspired me to continue creating unique experiences, explore beautiful places, and engage different village communities.  Retreat participants who adventure with us help to inspire future retreats. In essence, our students are our teachers. They have taught us that when people are inspired to take risks, meet new friends, travel internationally, and practice yoga and meditation, an amazing retreat experience is about to unfold. 

At Jayalila Retreats, we are passionate about cultivating the mind-body connection and the grounding, clarity and peace that this connection offers us.

Retreats build community and connection for all who participate.

Coordinating retreats in Mexico, The Caribbean, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Tobago, Guatemala, and Italy brings joy and creativity into my life work.
