Wellness and Yoga Retreat
For Sign Language Interpreters
San Miguel De Allende, Mexico
Day of The Dead - Día de Los Muertos
Oct. 30-Nov. 3rd
STRUCTURE AND FREEDOM
This retreat offers you the ability to get away from the daily grind, learn new yoga techniques, connect to your inner wisdom, free your body, relieve tension and stress, explore San Miguel de Allende and dip into the unique traditions of this magical country.
Seize this moment, this will be the only time this retreat will be offered at Casa Ana at this time of the year. There are limited spaces for just 8 interpreters.
Wake up to the sounds of birdsong and church bells, enjoy a morning beverage followed by a yoga class then brunch next door. Take the afternoon to explore San Miguel or relax at Casa Ana. Another class in the afternoon will still leave you with plenty of time to explore the festival activities in the evening. Complete your day with a delicious dinner at one of San Miguel’s world-renowned restaurants.
This retreat will be in English. If you want to know about the future plans for retreats in ASL with guest teachers, please send an email. It’s important to know there is demand for this.
Known as the ‘Heart of Mexico’ due to both its geographical and its historical significance, San Miguel de Allende has been voted many times as the Best City to Live by Condé Nast magazine.
A UNESCO world heritage town, it’s renown for its stunningly preserved colonial architecture and Neo-Gothic Parroquia, a gorgeous pink church in the center of town.
It’s full of rich history home to artists, amazing restaurants, and attracts people from all over the world.

During this time of year, there are festivals, parades, and altars to honor the memory of loved ones. Dia de los Muertos festivities include Calaca parades where folks dress up as Calacas as seen in the photo.
You can get your face painted and join the festivities. Public events for tourists include cultural activities all over town and public displays of altars in the Jardin.
It’s truly a magical and transformative time of year to be in Mexico, not to be missed.
DIA DE LOS MUERTOS
Casa Ana is a historical home right in the center of town with beautiful views of La Parroquia and just blocks from the Jardin.
There are six beautiful rooms, a quaint yoga studio, and a cafe where you can enjoy brunch each day. You will enjoy the charm of the Mexican architecture of Casa Ana with modern amenities.
You can relax beside the pool or in the garden, watch the sunset on one of the many terraces or the rooftop garden, curl up with a book in the cozy common areas, and take full advantage of the magic of San Miguel just outside the front door.
