Ashley Neese | Self-Discovery | Isla Holbox, Mexico

  • Isla Holbox Mexico (map)



23-26th Jan 2020

Join us in the New Year for an intimate breath-work retreat at the luxury design hotel Punta Caliza. We will gather together in the fresh air and warm water to explore our breath, inhabit our bodies and discover more of inner knowing. Through guided breathwork, somatic inquiry and community we will create a safe container to cleanse, unwind, relax, and recharge our systems.

Punta Caliza is a small, family-owned, design hotel in Isla Holbox, Mexico. Created and crafted by a family of travellers very much in love with their country. Utilising local materials and sustainable and conscious design. They want you to enjoy, fall in love with the island, and feel at home.

Punta Caliza acts as the perfect idyl for Self-Discovery. Remotely positioned and immersed in nature, it brings the the outside in. Marrying the elements in the most seductive way. Nothing is as it seems and ever corner and angle reconnects you with yourself and the world around you.

Self-Discovery is at the heart of the yoga tradition. It is essentially being aware of oneself. Becoming the observer, finding solace and strength in our solitude, being able to identify the paths given to us, and learning how to navigate our lives to fulfil ourselves personally rather than our notion of how we should be living




Ashley Neese is a renowned breathwork teacher and author of the best selling book How To Breathe: 25 Simple Practices for Calm, Joy and Resilience . She has studied with some of the world’s leading masters in yoga, meditation, medical intuition, and somatic therapy.

Ashley draws from this deep well of resources to guide people back into their bodies where they learn beyond the cognitive mind how to cultivate resilience, develop relational intelligence and trust the wisdom held within. Her passion stems from her belief that our deepest and most profound healing occurs when we learn to listen to the unique language of our bodies. 

Ashley has been featured in magazines such as Elle Japan and Angeleno, and on websites such as goop, Vogue, Well+Good, Jenni Kayne, and mindbodygreen, among others. She is in private practice in Los Angeles and the Bay Area.



We all possess both rough and smooth edges within our character. Like scales, they can often fluctuate. Punta Caliza reflects this intricate part of us. With water at the heart of its design it supports in purifying not only the space but all those that enter it.

The remoteness of its location supports in providing stillness and silence, something we often run away from. A human, nature connection is also greatly available and encouraged. Discovery starts with us acknowledging the world around us and the part it plays in nurturing our body, mind, spirit connection.

Consciously Connected Travel was created out of a necessity to do more. Our tribe of beatniks truly believe that everyone has a part to play, and ours is creating a space where travel, wellness and philanthropy intertwine. So that the future generations might live in a world that is a little bit more full of love and light.

CCT was designed to blur the lines between travel and supporting communities in the places you travel to, every time you travel with us - either through our Travel Design service, Culturally Connected Experiences or Wellness Activations, we donate a % directly from our own pockets to a local project, charity or community in that destination in addition to planting trees to offset each travellers carbon footprint.
