Travel and wellness have long been important components to the Free People brand. The retailer markets itself as a lifestyle, sharing content targeted at the women who is intelligent, creative, confident, and comfortable in all aspects of her being. For over ten years, Free People catalogs have whisked fans away to Paris, Bali, Costa Rica, Jackson Hole and more.

Now, FP ESCAPES offers even more: a full-immersion experience that brings the brand to life.

Free People has teamed up with Yogascapes to create the most amazing wellness escapes designed for women to live freely & fully while exploring incredible corners of the world.

Only a few spots left:

On this journey our practice will honor the lingering energy of the winter solstice by resting more than doing, by dreaming more than acting, and by diving into ourselves. Recharge amidst beautiful natural surroundings, soak up the sun and float out at sea.

Each day will focus on healing the body with daily yoga and nourishing vegetarian meals. Mornings will begin with a daily card reading and a moment of silent meditation to honor the depths of winter. In the middle of our trip, guests will have the option of partaking in a three day food-based cleanse through which they’ll learn about nutrition and encouraging healing in the body.

Throughout this experience an emphasis will be placed on fostering dreams; allowing ourselves permission to dream beyond our wildest imaginations, exploring storytelling, beautiful mystery, moon cycles, and more. Each soul who attends will leave feeling refreshed and ready to take on all the New Year has in store.

This trip is an FP Escape, curated by Free People and powered by Yogascapes.

Open to women ages 18 and over.
Airfare to Puerto Vallarta not included.

Yoga teachers, healers, nutritionists, and other world-renewed instructors will lead our group through its travels, providing deep knowledge and expertise

We will make the journey following the Winter Solstice, and our practice will honor its lingering energy by resting more than doing, by dreaming more than acting, and by deepening into ourselves.

Creating a fresh start to the New year, each guest will be outfitted with Free People product to match the escape and complement the experience.

We have permission to dream beyond our wildest imaginations. We will undergo a Temezcal indigenous ritual and will explore storytelling to awaken the spirit.

The home for this yoga adventure is Xinalani eco-resort where deep rest and relaxation are your only objective. The venue which can be accessed only by boat is located in Yelapa, Mexico, directly on the beach and surrounded with breath-taking jungle. Sounds amazing, right?

As a sustainable resort in Mexico, the property is a sanctuary for wildlife. Standing in the heart of the jungle privileges our location – humpback whales, bottled-nose dolphins, iguanas and birds such as parakeets, parrots, macaws, and woodpecker, among others. Sound amazing? We think so!
