Haramara Yoga Retreat
Sayulita, Mexico // January 15th - 22nd, 2022
Brisa and Raudhah welcome you to The Haramara Resort ~ named one of the top 10 eco resorts in the world by Yoga Journal ~ for a week-long immersion filled with yoga, mindfulness, meditation, connection, and friendship that will nourish your body and soul connection.
Are you emotionally fatigued from 2020/2021 being a huge unknown?
Have you been living in constant stress because your day to day has completely changed?
Do you miss being around people, seeing their smiles, hugging and squeezing friends?
Did everything related to 2020/2021 caused you to forget how to care for yourself physically, mentally and emotionally?
YES, we know how it feels.
That’s why we conjured up this week-long sanctuary together. To help you unplug from your busy routine, relax in nature, and practice self-care. With breathtaking views set as the background, you will become inspired not only by the beauty of clear blue waters of the Sayulita beach, but also through your daily yoga practice, mindful and loving conversations with like-minded people, and nourishing and fresh home-made meals created by world class chefs so you can feel like you are hugged from the inside out.
How will a day at the Haramara Retreat feel like~
Wake up slowly as the sun rises up through the jungle trees. Listen to the birds singing as you are walking in nature, surrounded by beautiful tropical foliage and flowers, and enjoy fresh homemade yogurt and granola, local organic fruits, and Yogi tea, followed by a 2-hour yoga practice to awaken your senses, energize your body, and restore your mind.
After our practice, we will all gather for desayuno, where we will enjoy a delicious breakfast and being around loving and wonderful friends.
After breakfast, you will have time to nourish your soul. Choose to get a massage, walk by the serene crashing waves beach and lay by the natural pool on the top of the mountain with an ocean view. Enjoy this time to rest, reflect, and replenish.
We will then meet for lunch. The chef will prepare an organic and delicious comida, always making sure to honor your dietary needs.
In the afternoon, we will head to the Yoga Shala for our afternoon vision circle which will incorporate contemplative writing, mindful movement, and a dharana practice (meditation)
Then after taking an outdoor shower in your cabana, we invite you to witness the exquisite Sayulita sunset and its transformative ancient wisdom.
We’ll walk together through the nature path and enjoy a flavor-packed cena. After dinner, some may want to go straight to their cabaña and get a wonderful night of sleep, while others will enjoy swimming or sitting in the hot tub and watching the night sky lit over the ocean view.

Hi, my name is Brisa (she, her, hers). I am a mama of two beautiful girls and Bodhi the corgi, and wife to the love of my life, David. I am a yoga teacher and the founder of Yoga for a Cause Movement.
I love traveling and the outdoors. I'm passionate about learning. I am always looking for new ways to get inspired on my mat, in my practice and when I am teaching yoga, and as a parent and human being. I'm an adventure seeker, world traveler, food enthusiast, wellness junkie, and avid yoga practitioner.
I grew up between the big city of Rio de Janeiro and a small farming town in the south of Brazil. Back in Rio, I studied Dramatic Arts, followed by a journey that brought me to the Rocky Mountains, Bermuda, a sailboat across the Atlantic to the Azores, then the Canary Islands, and Spain. I lived in Aspen, Boston, and Seattle before settling down in Durham, North Carolina. Coming from a totally different background and through my travels, I learned a lot about other cultures and ways of living. I learned that true happiness can be fostered when we plant seeds of compassion and understanding towards all beings. And that I could use any privilege that I have received to uplift and elevate someone else's life.
Though Brisa first found yoga in Brazil in 2003, it was not until 2009, while living in Aspen, Colorado, did yoga become part of her daily life. After only a few days of practice, Brisa realized the health, fulfillment, and peace that yoga would bring, and knew that she was destined to become a yoga teacher. Now Brisa brings 10 years and over 3,000 hours of teaching experience to her classes. Brisa is a certified Forrest Yoga, Prenatal Yoga, Early Postnatal Yoga, and Bikram Yoga teacher. She is also a Barre3 certified instructor. Brisa is passionate about coaching yoga with a therapeutic approach. She has recently partnered with Duke University Hospital and is currently involved in a study to help cancer patients and survivors through yoga. Brisa is also a member of the yoga teacher faculty at the 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training Program at Yoga Off East studio.
Brisa combines her love for yoga, travel, and adventure through her international yoga retreats.
I'm Raudhah. My pronouns are she/her/hers and I giggle A LOT. You could say that Raudhah's path has looked a lot like the Charlotte freeway, where I live now, confusing and yet got me to where I am.
Raudhah was born in Singapore and spent her formative years in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Growing up in an International School, she grew up eating all types of food, immersing in different cultures and sometimes combining different languages into one sentence.
Raudhah began her yoga practice when she was in grad school studying how soil bacteria interacted with plants but she could never afford to go to yoga studios. So once a week, she would get on a bus and travel on the LA freeways for 2 hours to take donation and free classes with Annie Carpenter and Bryan Kest.
So when she began making money as a research mentor, she started paying for a membership at CorePower Yoga. In 2014, Raudhah completed her 200hr teacher training with them and began teaching and helping to manage their Charlotte studio.
In October of 2019, she dug deeper into sequencing, anatomy, yin yoga and philosophy in her 300hr training with Adam Whiting Yoga. During a practice with Raudhah, she weaves in life lessons through the lens of civil rights activists and eastern philosophy such as yoga and Traditional Chinese Medicine. Raudhah is currently studying further with Michelle Cassandra Johnson to take responsibility for her role within social justice and
