Your Hostesses

Shalynn Flavell is a Clinical Hypnotherapist, Cognitive Behavioral Coach and cancer survivor (left). Dr. Jody Stanislaw is a Naturopathic Doctor who has lived with type 1 diabetes since the age of 7 (right).
We met in 1997 while volunteering at a summer camp for children with cancer and have been dear friends ever since. We have both experienced our own intense journeys with disease that have given us unique perspectives and insights in overcoming physical, mental and emotional struggle.

Our lives have taken quite different paths, yet have led us to building careers to help, guide and support others to live happy, healthy lives. We’ve had countless adventures and personal growth experiences together and for over a decade, we have discussed facilitating a transformative women’s retreat experience in a beautiful, beachside setting. ‘Unwind from The Grind” is our dream come to reality. We would be thrilled to meet you and share this amazing experience with you!

We are also thrilled to have the lovely and talented Sarah Curtis guiding our morning yoga sessions!



Join us in Sayulita, Mexico!

Location: Beautiful Villa Pelicanos
February 23 - March 1, 2018

Sayulita is a picturesque enclave 45 min north of Puerto Vallarta. Nature and artistry have converged to create a community that blends seamlessly into its environment and offers relaxed comfort and ease. Small boutique shops and a casual atmosphere make the village an easy and enjoyable place to stroll and soak up the local culture. Walkable and safe, Sayulita is the perfect spot to unwind yet still remain connected.


The Venue

The retreat center offers a magical getaway experience. The property is nestled on a stunning lush 2.5 acres with private beachfront access and beautiful jungle and ocean vistas.

You will feel totally removed from day-to-day hustle and bustle (there are no TV’s or phones), yet it's just a leisurely 10 minute walk into the village for shopping, surfing, eating out.

The main house is located on the top of a hill overlooking the ocean and beaches as far as the eye can see. Workshops, presentations and most activities will be held in a huge living room also on the hill at the top of the property.

Morning yoga, meditation and group hypnosis sessions will be held either out in the large garden abundant with tropical flowers and butterflies or in the shade under a palapa depending on our desires!

We'll be dining in the gardens under a palapa roof with views of both the ocean and the jungle -the perfect setting to enjoy delicious fresh chef prepared meals and share the days discoveries, experiences, laughter, and insights.

Cool off in the infinity pool between sessions. Take in the view of Sayulita village or dig your toes in the sand on the practically private beach attached to the property or just lounge with a book or journal soaking up the warmth or watching the sunset.


This is Exactly What I Need!

The Casitas

The architecture of all the casitas is equally beautiful; each blending harmoniously with the natural habitat, overlooking the ocean and opening up to a secluded balcony to relax and take in the view.

The rooms are double occupancy, have their own bathrooms and are decorated with stylish local flair. Linens and towels are hotel quality and mosquito netting is on all the beds. There is an in-room safe for your valuables, purified drinking water and daily maid service.
