Daily Yoga and Meditation
Classes are customized for the needs of people with headaches. Yoga was the first "alternative care" that actually helped my own migraines, so I love sharing this tool with other people. We focus on neck stretches, long holds to calm the nervous system, and we avoid inversions that can worsen headaches.
Learn about the root causes of migraine that are fixable... such as nutrient deficiencies, leaky gut, toxins, and adrenal fatigue...all while you smell the ocean breeze.
Unwind with at the ocean front spa with treatments that will soothe your nervous system. We will also have the option to participate in a temezcal with a local shaman, which is a purifying sweat lodge ritual.
Whale watching, hikes to a local waterfall... the afternoons are yours to explore. We will also have a bonfire on the beach for our opening ceremony the first night, and salsa lessons to celebrate our last night!
Each room has a sliding glass door, so you can fall asleep to the sound of the waves, or close the door to cool off in the A/C. We will have the exclusive use of both eco-friendly villas at Mixto during our stay.
Foods to support brain health
We will dine like royalty, with gluten-free food at every meal. Other food sensitivities can be accommodated as well.
Mixto offers three healthy meals a day using locally sourced foods and seasonal ingredients prepared by our private chef.
