The Team

Foko De La Pena

Foko is our very own private chef and the wise master for our medicinal food. His passion started as just a 12-year-old boy when he was trained by everyone's favorite chef - his grandma.

Suddenly he was rising through the ranks at a private cooking agency while simultaneously practicing yoga under his teacher Michael Stewart, founder of Shanta Vira Yoga.

In 2018 his cooking took a more conscious path and led him to study Ayurveda. He offers Ayurveda consultations during our Retreats and Trainings.

Adriana Zarza

Adriana is a seeker, numerologist, visual artist and passionate student of healing techniques. Born in Mexico she is the bearer of several ancestral prayers for cleaning the physical, mental, energetic and emotional bodies. She also holds a 300-hr Yoga Alliance YTT in Ashtanga Yoga.

What makes this retreat special?

It is known that the whole cosmos and ourselves revolve under the play of the 5 Great Elements (Earth, Water, Fire, Air & Ether). By understanding the way these elements work – supported with the knowledge of Ayurveda, Tantra and Yoga (the 3 sister sciences) – we can find a way to restore balance and enhance our day-to-day lives.

Music, music and more music. We have come to understand that sound and vibration is a powerful medium through which to heal and connect with the spirits.

So if you are someone who is looking to unblock your musical expression, or already love to get stuck in with the chorus, then this will be a wonderful experience for you!

The Food

All of the food is inspired by their very own host Foko. Having spent most of his life as a professional chef he knows a thing or two about how to make a good meal! He sprinkles his Ayurvedic knowledge onto all the dishes he creates, but it is his huge heart that seasons the food most strongly. Every meal is full of love and devotion. Tasting is believing!

You will enjoy breakfast after your morning practices, it would be prepared under the Ayurvedic guidelines and herbal knowledge to create a balancing meal with the elements. The breakfast will include a combination of fruits at their own time followed up by a hearty cereal packed with spices, seeds, and nuts. Tea will be served after.

At night you will be part of a family-style dinner, following what Ayurveda recommends you to stay balanced with your elements and while also keeping the medicinal aspect of food in tune with your needs.

This will include different portions of cereals, fresh veggies, salsas or chutneys, grains, and magical spices. Tea will be served after. Snacks and beverages will be present every day during our break at noon. Always under the same guidelines.
