“let the mystery of life hold you, while proceeding with grace and curiosity for who you are and what life is bringing you” – Steph Wall Yoga

At the end of September, Steph hosted a Yoga retreat at La Calma in the jungle of Tulum, Mexico. Yoga, travel, and tequila brought us all together in Mexico and there was no shortage of laughs, jungle sweat, or cervezas.

A hot minute with Steph:

What was the inspiration for Strong & Free Mexico edition? Prior to the Strong and Free Retreat in Mexico, all my retreats had been run in partnership with someone else. I wanted to challenge myself and do something on my own this time. I wanted to step up and do something that would challenge me to really live Strong and Free! I chose Mexico specifically because I wanted to go somewhere I had already been to, already fallen in love with, and knew we would be safe and comfortable. Tacos and margaritas were a factor in this decision as well.

Style of yoga that inspires and challenges you? Vinyasa all the way!! I love teaching something so fluid and graceful. It gives me the gift of creative expression, whether I am teaching it or practicing it. It can hold me like a baby when I need it, and it can challenge me like a bitch when I need it.

Favorite food dish in Mexico? Drink?! Fish tacos and una y dos y tres cervezas 🙂
