Mexico 2022: Unplug, Reconnect, and Restore with Nicole Bratt & Christina Malecka
March 12| $2,300
Digital Fast & Yoga Retreat with Nicole Bratt & Christina Malecka
You are invited to join Nicole & Christina for a very special, immersive, week-long digital fast and yoga retreat in peaceful Troncones, Mexico, in March 2022.
Our deadline-driven, non-stop world of competition, hustle, and bottom lines can drive us to extremes. Our tech – as useful as it is – can sap our focus, productivity, creativity, joy, and, ultimately, our impact.
If we desire balance and resiliency in our lives, we must cultivate opportunities to come home to ourselves, to disconnect and recharge. Embracing these opportunities is essential for success in all aspects of how we love, live, and lead.
In order to spend less time on our phones we need to reclaim our lives in ways that transcend tools and quick tips. This is personal growth that is most powerful when held in community.
In service of this, this retreat is designed for those of you craving spaciousness, ease, deep relaxation, and a chance to empower your personal relationship with tech.
Imagine a unique opportunity to slow way down and experience something different.

About the instructors: Nicole Bratt & Christina Malecka
Nicole, a Midwest native, is committed to holding space for students so that they may benefit from this elegant practice we know as yoga. She is deeply honored to be doing just that as the Studio Manager at Seattle Yoga Arts. Her life passion is cultivating vibrant and inclusive community wellness, and she is excited to bring her diverse background as a graphic designer, yoga teacher, event planner, photographer, volunteer coordinator, and small business owner to SYA.
As a group fitness instructor, Nicole explored yoga briefly in her 20s, but initially there was little resonance. When yoga crossed her path again in her 30s, she discovered she was ready to fully embrace its life-changing gifts. Her path led to completing both 200-hr and 500-hr teacher trainings at Yoga Tree San Francisco, and she specializes in Restorative, gentle, therapeutic, and prenatal modalities. She is passionate about the power of stillness as a transformational experience, as well as an antidote to urban living. After 12+ years living, working, and studying in San Francisco, Nicole transplanted to our lush, beautiful Seattle. When she’s not at the studio, you are likely to find Nicole outdoors, listening to live music, creating art, making/eating delicious food, or adventuring near and far.
Christina Malecka is the creator, facilitator and instigator at Unplug Reconnect Restore: Digital Mindfulness Retreats and Workshops. A community organizer turned Licensed Mental Health Counselor, Christina brings over 25 years of experience with change-making, group facilitation, meditation training and workshop development. She loves creating nurturing experiences and holding space for people, and was inspired to create her Digital Mindfulness Retreats after her own profound experience with digital detox and re-set.
