Are you ready for the jungle? Spend one week at an eco-resort along the Quintana Roo coast with Monika Harczuk from Harmonized New York exploring Pilates, yoga, meditation, breathing techniques, dance and a Mayan ceremony with a local shaman. This Back To Our Roots Retreat is designed to awaken the clarity and wisdom within you! Treat yourself to a heart-centered adventure and wellness experience that will send you home revived on every level—mind, body and soul. Participants will explore simple tools and techniques to help manage stress and create new, healthy imprints and habits to carry home with them. The retreat is like a week-long camp for adults—full of health, wellness, fun and nature in an intimate group setting (max. 14 people). 

About the Host

After receiving her Classical Pilates Instructor Certification in the Netherlands in the early 2000s, life brought Monika Harczuk to New York City in 2006 where she continues to live, teach and learn. The Big Apple is where she started her meditation practice and also discovered Iyengar yoga. She is very grateful for all that she has experienced along the way and is more than happy to share this knowledge with you! 

About the Venue

Retreat attendees will stay in exclusive accommodations or cozy houses (“casas”) with private rooms and ensuite bathrooms, air conditioning and a shared living room area that's practically outdoors where you can read, relax and connect with others. Guests have access to a private cenote (a natural freshwater pool carved out of limestone rock) as well as the on-site swimming pool. The jungle eco-resort is located near the beachfront village of Chemuyil, just 75 minutes south from Cancun International Airport (CUN).

  • The retreat includes scientific proven methods for stress reduction and sleep improvement. Participants will not only have the chance to explore and try all of the tools and techniques offered, but they will also create new habits to take home with them.
  • The retreat provides a week to take a break not only from your daily routines but from the hustle-bustle of the city and from any air and sound pollution. A total break from all around you to calm down your nervous system, to quieten your mind, sharpen your senses and awaken your inner guiding light and clarity. 

The retreat is designed for anyone looking for a nourishing vacation to enjoy, explore and refresh in a beautiful environment surrounded by like-minded people! People who enjoy yoga, meditation, breathwork, dancing and Pilates! All levels welcome. The retreat program is designed to uplift your energy levels, empower your body, and quiet your active mind so you can tap into your full strength, clarity and potential—all while experiencing the beauty of the tropical jungle. It's the perfect place for those seeking peace, meditation and a healing environment. The program is based on four core values: mindful movement, meditation, laughter and learning.
