Earth Day

It's just another beautiful sunrise in paradise, as the cool winds of the beautiful sea carefully sway throughout the hotel on this steamy hot day in Mexico. The soothing sounds of the caribbean crash upon the beach in rhythm with the rustling of the palm trees lining the shore. The sounds resonate with the acknowledgement that today we celebrate Mother Earth, today is Earth Day.

In 1969, activist John McConnell proposed a day to honor the earth and the concept of peace. Awakening a notion of change and it's possibilities available at ones little green fingertips. Alongside the hotel's philosophy for sustainable living, it is with large hearts we pay homage to the importance of McConnell's message to care and nurture for our planet.

The Sanara Tulum team has thoughtfully prepared freshly farmed coco palms and other local plants for guests & friends to collectively seed throughout the hotel. Together with the hotel's landscaping artist Jossemar Rivera & Benito Barcenas, Sanara's visionaries Daniella Hunter and Charlie Stuart Gay invite all guest and friends to participate and share the importance of today, Earth Day.

Coconut Oil for Natural Beauty

Coconut Oil for Natural Beauty

If I had to choose one beauty product to take to a desert island, (and I sort of now live on a Desert Island Beach @ Sanara Tulum) it would be, without doubt, coconut oil.  Having said that, I am sure there would be coconuts on said desert island, in which case I would just make my own coconut oil!

Coconut oil has so many diverse uses, many of which involve its use in cooking, or for consumption, but this post is dedicated to the benefits and pleasures of using coconut oil in your beauty or personal care routine.

Yet Daniella has supplement my desire with this drink... Its amazing and you can share one with us when you visit"

About Rebecca Jo
Rebecca Jo began her yoga practice a decade ago in an effort of physical healing after experiencing trauma to her spine. She quickly understood that flexibility and strength were not simple matters of muscle and bone, but also a challenge to one's sensibilities - a shift in perception that lit the path to inevitable self-discovery.

Through the experience of pain, she learned about the healing potential of the human body and has since dedicated herself to sharing that understanding. With an emphasis on re-focusing energy, Rebecca Jo is able to help connect the emotional stresses of her students to their physical goals through breath meditations, conscious alignment based movement, somatics education and practices of presence.  The physical body is used as a teaching tool and guide to understanding existence on a subtle level. Trained in Vinyasa Flow, Forrest Yoga, and Integrated Movement Therapies, Rebecca Jo continues her own study of human anatomy and movement, injury and trauma recovery, stress release, massage and natural healing in order to deepen her own understanding of the human experience.

As the eternal student herself, Rebecca Jo's practice has shifted and grown through her travels - from hosting private retreats in Thailand and Mexico, as well as pop-up events on New York City rooftops and workshops in Berlin. Each new place traveled inspires her to take on unique and exciting challenges in balance and strength, such as her recent innovative foray into stand up paddleboard yoga here in our beautiful Tulum.
