Hotel Nabalam offers you a place to enjoy the beauty of the Caribbean sea and its sunsets with personalized services and attention. Isla Mujeres never fails to provide an amazing backdrop for lots of yoga, lots of relaxation and lots of laughs. Two yoga classes daily, long walks on the beach, amazing food, on-site spa (spa services not included) All combine to insure you come back restored, refreshed and renewed. During our last three retreats many lasting and deep friendships and bonds were formed on this magical island. We found that there is amazing connection when people are in a place where it is easy to let down habitual defenses and drop more easily into our true selves. Salir del frio! Thaw out in paradise with like-minded souls and get your HOLA on with Ellen and Sally in Isla Mujeres. We welcome yogi's from everywhere with all levels of practice!
The Digs And Details: To get there just grab a flight to Cancun, take a transport to Puerto Juárez and then enjoy an easy breezy (and really fun!) 15-minute ferry ride to the charming Island of Isla Mujeres. (Transport can be set up for you from the airport to the hotel. Ask for details.) Hotel Nabalam — Maya Haven on the beach is located on (and we mean ON!) the North Beach, our favorite beach on Isla Mujeres. In fact our favorite beach — anywhere — period.
The rooms are spacious and chic and there are squishy beds on the beach for your seaside lounging pleasure.
If you like to gaze at the Caribbean blue while you nibble on guacamole (or the yummiest fish tacos, etc.), enjoy Nabalam’s fabulous beach restaurant. If you’d like to get a taste of local cuisine, the town is walking distance from the hotel. (Just don’t let that stop you from renting a golf cart to explore!)

With Donna. Sunday, April 6, 1:45 – 2:45 pm. Yoga Nidra is a highly powerful ancient meditation technique originated from the Tantras. It is the scientific way to eliminate the root cause of all the negativities. In yoga nidra, you not only enjoy the complete physical, mental and emotional relaxation but also get to explore the tremendous powers hidden in the deeper layers of subconscious and In the deep relaxation state of yoga nidra, the mind is in a state between sleep and wakefulness and its receptivity is many times more than its receptivity in wakeful state. The secret is that the subconscious mind is at front in this state while the conscious mind takes the back seat. The subconscious mind is a very obedient disciple and immediately carries out the orders that you put to it. By practicing yoga nidra you can completely train your subconscious mind. Then the ordinary conscious mind and intellect will follow the suit. The subconscious and the unconscious mind are the most powerful forces in the human being. In yoga nidra you learn how to access these powerful forces to gain knowledge, cure diseases, increase creativity, and to realize your true self.unconscious mind. A single hour of yoga nidra is as restful and refreshing as four hours of conventional sleep.
