Personalized retreats at Casita Tibet in San Miguel de Allende

San Miguel de Allende is a magical town located at the very heart of Mexico in the state of Guanajuato. At 6000 feet of elevation it has an ideal climate of dry heat during the day and fresh nights. Designated as a Unesco Heritage Site and considered one of the most beautiful cities in Mexico, it is a place of inspiration for artists and seekers. Casita Tibet is a beautiful space ideal for relaxation, refuge and practice.

I have always found during my life that when in a phase of transition or crisis the most helpful action for me was to get away for a short time and immerse myself in a completely different environment to gain perspective and insight.

After selling my Yoga studio of 20 years in 2017, I wanted to once again create a space of refuge but at a much smaller scale and in Mexico, a place that grew in my heart over the last years and that I now call my second home.

I called our space in San Miguel Casita Tibet because Tibet always represented a place of wonder and mystery to me and is situated similarly as the heart of Mexico on high plains.

The retreats at Casita Tibet are uniquely tailored to the visitor’s needs and always include daily Yoga classes, meditation sessions, coaching sessions, astrological transit readings and two meals specifically designed for the needs and constitution of the visitor along with delicious & medicinal teas made of local herbs.

Retreats usually are from Friday night until the following Saturday morning. The price includes all classes, meals and accommodation. Airfare and travel to and from Leon, BJX airport are not included.

Before every retreat I have an hour phone conversation with the visitor to inquire about physical, emotional and spiritual needs, their goals and concerns and their dietary requirements and wishes.

Accommodation is in the ground floor of Casita Tibet with bedroom, living room , kitchen and Yoga room with all doors leading onto the lovely patio with a fountain and lush plants. The Casita is walking distance to the center of town and no car is required to move around in town.

On the second floor of the Casita are my living quarters and has a separate entrance creating a space of privacy for each casita but makes me available at all times during the retreat.

Booking for summer of 2019. Friday to Saturday (8 nights and 7 days) $2000. Extra services such as massage and excursions to ancient sites and hot springs can be accommodated at an additional cost. Best airports to fly to: Leon, BJX, GTO (one hour and 15 minutes drive to San Miguel) or Mexico City (3 hours drive to San Miguel). Very reasonable shuttle services available for both airports through Vaijes San Miguel. Contact directly with your flight information at

“I want to first thank you for your openness to receive me in Casita Tibet. I did, in fact, gain enormous insight into the recipes for a calm and insightful heart and mind. Since arriving home I have incorporated what we discussed and integrated these insights into my daily life. I will deepen these understandings with further introspection and practice. San Miguel is magical! Guided by your compassionate coaching and nurtured by the welcoming environment of Casita Tibet I have come back home with much more peace in my heart.” – K. Trent – August 2018


” As you ring,what batters you becomes your strength.
 Move back and forth into the change.
What is it like, such intensity of pain?
If the drink is bitter, turn yourself to wine”

( from the Sonnets to Orpheus II, 29)        Rainer Maria Rilke
