Fit & Fly Girl Tulum

April 1 - 8, 2017

Join us for Fit & Fly Girl Tulum, which will be held April 1 - 8, 2017, at Shambala Petit Hotel, a beachfront boutique hotel in the heart of Tulum, Mexico. Your fitness instructor for the retreat will be UK-based personal trainer Katie Davies, and your retreat host will be Kathryn Stella.

Shambala Petit Hotel

Shambala Petit is a boutique hotel located beachfront in the heart of Tulum, walkable to shopping, restaurants, and bars.  The hotel consists of 10 casitas, 9 with private in-room bathrooms and 1 with a private bathroom separate from the casita.  Unlike most hotels in Tulum, Shambala Petit's casitas have air conditioning.  Each casita is unique and most open directly onto the beach.  Shambala Petit has a yoga/fitness studio facing the ocean as well as a dining room where breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be served for the group.  Fit & Fly Girl has reserved the entire hotel to provide our guests with a private hotel experience.

Please note that the use of hair dryers, flat irons or curling irons is not allowed at Shambala Petit because they will overpower the hotel's generators.


All meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) are served at Shambala Petit and included in the cost of the retreat. Coffee and tea are served each morning at the hotel; fresh juices are served with breakfast, lunch, and dinner; and filtered water is available throughout the day. Meals are healthy and delicious, emphasizing local fruits and vegetables and fresh fish. One night during the retreat, the women will have the option to go out to dinner at Hartwood restaurant in Tulum, which the New York Times has referred to as "inventing food that is avant-garde and ancient, global and local — and, fortunately, delicious."

Fitness Classes, Activities, and Excursions

Your fitness instructor for Fit & Fly Girl Tulum, Katie, will lead daily fitness classes throughout the week. Katie offers a variety of classes tailored to various fitness levels, including kickboxing, circuit training, yoga, HIIT training, and cardio, such that no two classes are ever the same. Each morning, stretching and beach walks will be offered. One complimentary 60-minute massage will be provided for each guest inside Shambala Petit's massage palapa. A local shaman will lead a Mayan clay ceremony and meditation for the group.

During the retreat there will be various excursions in and around Tulum, including biking to and visiting the Mayan ruins in Tulum, visiting the Cobá ruins, swimming at a cenote, and visiting the Sian Ka'an biosphere. Shambala Petit has bikes and stand-up paddleboards for any guests who wish to use them. For a supplemental fee, we are able to arrange any additional activities you would like during your retreat, including snorkeling, biking, surfing, cooking lessons, parasailing, scuba diving, kite surfing, Spanish lessons, visits to area cenotes, stand-up paddleboarding lessons, a day at the spa, or a session with a local shaman, life coach, energy healer, or Mayan astrologer.

Fit & Fly Girl Tulum builds plenty of free time into the schedule each day to relax and sit by the ocean with a book, walk along the beach, get a massage, go shopping, or simply hang out at Shambala Petit with the other women on the retreat.
