Re-Awaken to Your True Nature Retreat

Hosted By Laurie Maloney/UNWIND Studio and Emily Key

October 16th-20th, 2024

Join us for an all-inclusive yoga, meditation and sound healing retreat at Palmaïa, The House of AiA, a premier holistic retreat destination located in the gated resort community of Playacar, Mexico.


Allow yourself to take a break from the daily doings to rediscover what lights you up.

Are you stuck in a rut and feeling depleted of energy? Are you caring for everyone else?

Do you often feel like a personal chauffeur, personal chef, and personal assistant?

Have you wondered what happened to the vibrant, content, happy "you"?

Imagine no meal planning, cooking, or cleaning for a week.

You don’t have to take care of anyone else.

This is about you.

Maybe you don’t even know who "you" are anymore.

YOU are still in there!

Unearth your vitality and purpose as you join us for yoga, meditation and sound healing, to remember your true nature - the true "you" that may be currently buried underneath the juggling of work and family responsibilities.

It’s time to dedicate some time to yourself!

Immerse yourself in the surroundings of the ocean and jungle to calm the mind and reset.

Align your attention with your intention.

Take control of your own life, stop living in habitual patterns, and let go of the false narratives you tell yourself that have been holding you back.

Be guided through awakening, to unlock your hidden power.

Slow down, rest, and allow yourself to be nurtured to experience your own inner peace through restorative yoga practices, meditation and sound healing sessions.

Be in community with supportive, like minded and relatable people.

Step out of your comfort zone and reignite the spark within to restore you back to your true nature! Bring "you" back to "YOU".

Giving yourself permission to get away for this retreat will:

• Clarify what’s important to you so that you are fulfilled with meaning and purpose.

• Identify where energy and time are mis-aligned with your priorities.

• Reinvigorate your desires and dreams which may have fallen away due to getting stuck in your routine.

• Reconnect you to the harmony of nature and humanity.
Return to simplicity of body and breath.

• Let go of chaos and invite calm and steady rhythm back into your life.

• Reveal the bad habits and patterns you are too busy to see when you don’t have a single moment in your busy day and give you practical tools to implement positive shifts.

• Empower you to take the next step toward personal freedom.

• Help you process and understand your current stage of life as you reflect, expand your consciousness, and transform.

• Connect you with supportive people.

• Rejuvenate, restore and heal the body, mind, and spirit.
