NEW YEARS OCEANSIDE YOGA RETREAT IN THE JUNGLES OF PUERTO VALLARTA

Wednesday, January 04 - Saturday, January 07, 2017

Relax, renew and reset at Xinalani Retreat with Cat Aldana and Brian Witten. This 10-acre TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner and top-ranked specialty lodging puts mind and body wellness front and center. The property setting in and of itself will get you into Zen mode in no time. All retreat facilities, from the thatched-roofed meditation cabin and jungle studio to the greenhouse, are designed to highlight the incredible mountain, beach and jungle scenery; there’s even a yoga sand terrace, where you can occasionally see a pelican swoop in! Spend your hours watching for whales or exploring the lush canopy, among so many other options. And if you still don’t feel rested, there’s always your room – it’s perched on stilts, above the ocean, so you can fall asleep to the lapping of the Mexican Pacific. To keep you in top form, its restaurant offers healthy cuisine, using local ingredients and freshly caught seafood. For staying hydrated, the waters from fresh-cut coconuts complement smoothies and cocktails at the bar. And of course, for your twice daily yoga, you have Brian and Cat leading you into the most blissfully awesome savasanas and ultimate meditative states.

Digital Detox

Digital Detox

We know we’re on our phones too much. We know we shouldn't scroll mindlessly on Instagram right before bed. We know staring at a screen too long can't be good, but we do it anyway. If you have a million reasons why you must respond to every email or why eating lunch at your desk is the only solution to getting all your work done, consider adding a meditation practice to your routine to help you stay balanced and focused despite all of life’s distractions. More than ever we need to learn how to create an oasis of calm to escape to, where we are just “being” rather than “doing.” In this era of multi-tasking, being able to focus on one thing regardless of anything else going on around you is a truly priceless skill to have. 

Step back from the noise and reward yourself to a window of time to learn how to tune into what really matters: you, your body, your mind and your complete and total wellbeing. Join Cat Aldana in an intimate two hour yoga class and guided meditation at Flex Pilates Chicago to help you reach greater productivity and longer stretches of true happiness. All levels welcome.

Date: Sat. March 12th
Time: 4pm-6pm
Cost: $60
Location: Flex Pilates (213 W Institute Pl)

Daybreaker Chicago // Everybody Remembers Their First...

The wait is over. It's time to wake up and dance your face off. Chicago, it's official... Friday nights are for sleeping now, because Wednesday morning we're hitting the club. 

What if we ditched the treadmill, skipped the gym, and said goodbye to the lackluster morning routine? What if we shunned bottle service, velvet ropes, the morning hangovers and instead came together to dance with reckless abandon surrounded by amazing people, beautiful music, and a vibe you won’t find anywhere else?

After waking up in NYC, LA, SF, London, and all around the world, it’s about time we brought some morning mischief back home to Chicago.

Get tix — Chicago.daybreaker.com/tix

You'll flow with master yogis Cat Aldana and Brian Witten, dance to the epic beats of Win & Woo and experience wave after wave of surprise performances from the best underground talent Chicago has to offer. The coffee, juices, and breakfast treats are on us, you just come ready for an epic experience you won’t soon forget.
