The Mystic Within with Jen Breen
Yoga is therapeutic, joyful, practical and mystical.
Join Jen Breen for a week together of yoga, play and relaxation at the sweetest place – Mar de Jade – a lovely resort nestled in a bay by jungle and sea just an hour and a half North of Puerto Vallarta.
We will practice folding and unfolding, looking in and looking out, circling around and traversing new terrain in our bodies and minds to reveal the mystic within. Mythology teacher Joseph Campbell said,
“The privilege of a lifetime, is being who you are.”
Taking time for oneself on retreat is a way to find out who you are without all the demands and stresses of modern day life. Our time together will help us ground our roots of stability, gather techniques of capaciousness, and tap our creative and clear visions for our own path in life.
This is for all levels of yoga students. We encourage everyone to come with abundance and a beginner’s mind.
Your week will include:
- 7 Nights Accommodation
- 3 Full meals a day (vegetarian and vegan available)
- 2 Yoga Classes and Daily Meditation with Jen
- Available but not included: spa treatments, bar drinks, day trips to nearby villages, San Pancho and Sayulita, snorkeling, hiking, sightseeing and surfing.

Date & Time: November 2-9, 2019

About the instructor: Jen Breen
I grew up in Seattle in a hippy, creative, curious, outdoor-loving family. During my teenage years my mother would walk around the house in aerobic clothes and drag me to a funky yoga class in a gym. Little did I know that this would become my life’s work and passion. I began studying yoga formally with Cintra Brown in Phoenix, AZ while teaching elementary school with Teach For America.
i appreciate how yoga helps me be more authentic, compassionate and aware. I use yoga to help me understand myself better which helps me understand others better. I appreciate that it’s a practice for life. My practice has given me tools to help me in life most especially as a wife and mother and a steward of this beautiful earth.
My inspirations and influences along the way are: my mom who values humility and who is quoted to say, “you aren’t as important as you think you are.” My dad who imparted wisdom through modeling a good life of balance and harmony and following your bliss. My sisters Kim and Heidi who are my best friends, advisors and truth tellers. My husband Tom who practices a yoga called “sense of humor” and my four little yet mighty teachers; Grace Cal Johnny and Kate. My yoga teachers; Cintra Brown who taught me the power of mantra and seeing students, Sharon Land who taught me about Daimon and finding one’s unique inner gift. Bikram for the power of asana, heat, discipline and sequencing. Erich Schiffmann for the power of meditation, listening, riding the edge and free form yoga. Katerina Wen for her devotion to the multi-dimensionality of yoga and her brave, authentic approach to teaching with depth and courage. Catherine Shainberg for my yearly tune ups in the potential of imagery to powerfully transform habits. Newest teacher of mine; Nevine Michaan of Katonah Yoga…an original and diverse teacher. And, lastly Mother Nature — the forest, the sea, the mountains and most of all the moss.
