Elemental Retreat

July 28th - August 4th, 2021

Oaxaca, Mexico

Disconnect with the outside world, nourish your soul, and access complete rejuvenation through daily yoga and meditation led by Kelli Wefenstette, owner of Wildlight Yoga in Chicago, and Arielle Schmidt, owner of Tranquility Rising in Cincinnati. 


Wanderers will be invited to participate in yoga, meditation, mindfulness, journaling, and community circles while receiving ample time for personal care as well as life changing adventure. You can even dive deeper into your own journey by adding a Thai Yoga Immersion Protocol with Arielle onto your trip. 



In the spirit of elementals we are embracing the Earth Element. What does that mean? Everyone has their own unique needs when they travel, so to make everyone comfortable and conscious of those traveling on a budget, we highly recommend booking your lodging at Casa Angel Hostel. You can also book an Airbnb but the hostel will be our center point.


Casa Angel Hostel has a multitude of room options from standard, deluxe, and superior rooms varying from private rooms and ensuites to dorm style. For the budget conscious you can stay here for less than $100. (Arielle personally stayed here February 2021 in the Deluxe Mixed 6 Bed at half capacity for $80 for a week.)


By allowing you to pick your own level of comfort we aim to keep you balanced the moment you arrive so you can spend less time adjusting and more time relaxing and reconnecting to yourself.
