We will be working intensively toward a pain-free life! We will learn how to reduce our chronic pain through mind-body education, yoga, breathwork, healthy eating, and more!


We will be working to eliminate our pain at the Maya Tulum Resort, located on the beach in Tulum, Mexico (visit for more information). This resort is breathtakingly beautiful, and is dedicated to facilitating the health and healing of their guests with luxurious treatments with influences, both ancient and modern.

Meals and Accommodations (included in price):

We will be eating 3 gourmet meals a day. They will be vegetarian, anti-inflammatory, and will assist in our internal healing.

We will be housed in beautiful cabinas with bug nets to allow a perfectly uninterrupted sleep. Cabinas will sleep 2 people each so prepare to get to know your new roommate for 5 days! Groups of 3 or more may be able to reserve a larger cabina at no extra cost (E-mail for inquiries).

What to Expect from Classes:

Empowerment through education is a key part of breaking free from your pain! It is my intention to bring together 20 years of knowledge regarding the science, experience, and treatment of chronic pain from a bio-psycho-social perspectives. We will have fun, interactive lectures and discussions which will go over mind-body medicine and the mind-body connection to pain, basic anatomy and physiology of pain, Eastern and Western techniques to access the healing wisdom of our unconscious minds, and more! Most importantly, you will leave with effective tools to use back at home to make sure the pain stays away. We will have group yoga (all levels welcome!), and group adventures exploring natural wonders and ancient Mayan civilizations. We will lounge on the beach and watch the sunset every night.

Most importantly, this is a “Choose your own adventure” kind of week. All events are highly encouraged but completely optional. This is your vacation, after all!
