TULUM, MEXICO ~ While the earth transitions from summer to fall, EcoTulum Resorts along Mexico’s Riviera Maya in Tulum, helps travelers do the same with a number of wellness retreats designed to promote inner connectedness and general well-being.

Like the earth, our bodies respond to the changing seasons. To prepare mentally, physically and spiritually EcoTulum Resorts offers travelers the opportunity to explore their bodies and minds during two organized retreats held at EcoTulum properties this November.

The first retreat, a nine-day journey through all things therapeutic, spans from November 4-12 and centers around the work of Christine Germyn, an experienced Yoga instructor whose practice focuses on Flow Yoga, a combination of Raja, Hatha, Ashtanga, Vinyasa Flow and Power Yoga techniques. Participants looking to recharge for the new season can stretch their way to wellness while enjoying the rustically chic beach villas at Azulik (

The second retreat, which runs from November 11-18, aims to strip away exterior encumbrances to put participants in touch with their core essence through the techniques of Hakomi, a holistic therapy that integrates the principles of mindfulness, organicity, non-violence, the mind-body connection and unity. The retreat will be lead by master herbalist and iridologist Martha McCallum, who will help attendees reconnect with their organic selves as they soak in the sun and surf at Cabañas Copal (
