One breath, one movement, one step at a time, we learn to trust in ourselves and forge the way forward.
Transformation is a practice of repetition, just like all others. Learn to trust, push, surrender, and grow, all with what you already possess. My yoga journey began like many others, ignited out of sheer necessity:
Brand new to Boston and the city’s way of life, in 2011 I began working in a local artist’s studio in the trajectory of my academic career in Art History. Just months after moving to Boston from North Carolina, I suddenly became seriously ill. I struggled for months trying to sort out what was causing the illness. I wound up trying to sustain a very limited version of a vegan diet (rather unsuccessfully) to appease my body’s digestive failure and eminent shut down. Countless failed doctors and blamed organs later, my mentor in the art studio finally had quite enough of my constant state of frustration and exhaustion, and dragged me to my first yoga class.
A practiced yogi herself, Sheila opened the door to my slow but extraordinarily transformative path back to health, via the simplicity of learning about body awareness. Despite extraordinary doubt from doctors, I eventually learned how to listen to my body through my yoga practice, riddling out the cause to my illness. (A rare and severe allergic reaction to a copper IUD)
It was six months after my first yoga class I began yoga teacher training, hopeful with my progress and new lifestyle to work my way back to health. My yoga practice serves me as a sort of tough love, when either my head or my heart fall back into old patterns of doubt or frustration. Looking back, I’m quite grateful for the the turbulent introduction to yoga - without having been so ill I may never have found the practice.
It’s from this experience that guides me to teach from my heart, with the same sense of compassion and empowerment I learned to summon for myself. The process of our growth may not always be comfortable or predictable, but it’s what we choose to do with what’s laid before us that really matters.
Meredith will meet you wherever you are, whether on your mat, or in your life, with equal parts empowerment and compassion. Her practice will bring both high octane energetic movement and quiet stillness, moving through dynamic opposition in the body to challenge the perspective of our own limitations one breath at a time.About Meredith Sills
Dee Holliday has been teaching in NYC since 2012. She holds two 200 hr certifications as well as being certified in Yoga Nidra. She is excited to be currently working on her 300 hour certification as well! Dee has studied extensively with Matt Giordano and is thrilled to be among the first graduates of the Chromatic Yoga training.
Dee Holliday approaches her class in such a way that you are lead through a thoughtful and structured sequence that will allow you to find the freedom and strength of your body in equal parts. She will urge you to not only release and flow with the freedom of your breath, but to also dig deep and find the joy in building your strength. Dee infuses her classes with a light-hearted, playful energy, creating a mood where students can cultivate and strengthen the relationship they have with themselves in a compassionate and loving way.About Dee Holliday
We are located on a private beach where you can really relax and be in touch with nature and the sea. Punta Monterrey is surrounded by 300 acres of jungle which is an ecological reserve. Here you can spend quality time with your friends and family in an isolated yet secure environment. Punta Monterrey Beach has maintained its natural beauty and wildness. Our hotel is designed for people who wish to get away from it all and step into nature. Enjoy our amazing sunsets, take a walk in the jungle or taste our fresh seafood and fish!

Excellent trip. The hotel was absolutely beautiful, and the staff was very friendly. Food was delicious. No wifi, contrary to the website, which turned out to be fabulous but could have been an issue if I'd had a lot of work that needed to be done. I would definitely go back.
Overall a great trip! Certainly a rustic, but beautiful location. The yoga room is wonderful and we had incredible sunsets. I would recommend for those who enjoy the outdoors and don't mind going without some amenities. The food was local and tasty. The owners and staff very friendly. We had awesome leaders and a great group of people which truly made the trip!
Amazing trip! Wonderful resort with a very accommodating staff.
Beautiful location. Fresh food made daily.
I truly enjoyed this trip. Great leader and beautiful resort.
It was really nice to getaway! Food was very fresh & tasty!! Beach and lodging was clean. I had trouble sleeping the first few nights as it was quite humid. My room description on trip tribe said that it had ac but it did not.
Trip exceed expectations.
Exceeded our expectations in every way! Perfect location, excellent accommodations, amazing people, and incredible food. Highly recommended. The location for a yoga retreat is perfect. To be overlooking the ocean and jungle with the sounds of the waves and the vision of the sun rising....while we did our morning yoga can't possibly be described in words....add to that the best yoga teacher in the universe....makes for a perfect experience.
This retreat was pure magic - from the location, to the accommodations, to the service and the staff - this was an amazing experience! Hands down.
What more can I say??? The entire trip was a 5 Star experience for me!!!!!!! Seafood came fresh from the ocean to our plates,fresh fruit at all meals.All of our requests were answered with "can do". Want massages ,arranged,want to go "zip lining" Etctera,Etcetera,Etcetera.I think the ONLY item Jaime and staff can't take "credit" for was the weather :-)
Really grateful for this place, the staff and the yoga room. We felt really welcome. We enjoyed how quiet the hotel and the beach was. It was truly a gift to stay at Punta Monterrey.
Amazing trip! Amazing resort! Friendliest staff, most beautiful beach, great accommodations, fantastic and super healthy meals prepared for us everyday! They had many great activities available for us each day such as kayaking, paddle boarding, hiking to a hidden beach with a mud bath. They harvested and served us fresh oysters from right off shore twice! I was able to snorkel out from our beach to a rock point and see a plethora of beautiful fish as well. I will certainly be going back to Punta Monterey!
Trip was amazing. Beautiful resort and private beach. The friendly staff and delicious food made the trip extra special. Highly recommend and would go back in a heartbeat.
One of the best trips I have been on. Tracey lead a wonderful retreat and the environment was perfect for mindfulness.
The trip was fantastic! The location was idyllic and the seclusion or remoteness was what I was looking for in a retreat that was meant to enhance mindfulness, our awareness to be present and to be grateful of where we were and what we already have in our lives.
Wonderful! Totally taken care of. Would do it again for sure!
Excellent combination of superb yoga instruction, beautiful location and camaraderie. It rekindled my resolve to keep a daily yoga practice and gave me tools to enable that to easily happen. Being able to spend the free time on the adjacent beach and surrounding forest was spectacular.
This was an excellent retreat in every way. The teacher was excellent. The stay at the Hotel Punta Monterrey was also excellent. It was on the rustic side in some ways but that added to the experience.
It was great.
The food, accommodations and yoga was OVER THE TOP. I had the time of my life :-)
Had a great time! Outstanding job by instructors and hotel staff
Fantastic experience.... the entire staff is there to accommodate your every need, especially Jaime and Mateus. Exquisite rustic setting on private beach was pure paradise and the fresh food dishes were to die for AND super healthy...my fav was the fresh ahi, but close behind were the jack fish (sometimes caught right at our beach), dove fish, and tuna. The cuisine was an ongoing superb party of fresh flavors that tantalized the tastebuds!!!!
It was a beautiful location.
This was my second experience hosting a yoga retreat with Trip Tribe and it far exceeded my highest expectations. Thank you for connecting us with such quaint locations to share our love of yoga and travel with our students. Looking forward to booking my 3rd retreat with Trip Tribe in the next few months.
I had a great time!
Overall the trip was excellent! We enjoyed great yoga and meditation, terrific food, and the location and hotel staff made the whole experience amazing!
Hotel Puenta Monterrey was incredibly intimate and relaxing. If you want to unplug and remember what is important, this is the place. The owners are on site and involved in the day to day operations keeping in touch with the needs of their guests. It is family owned and cherished in a way that provides a quiet intimacy. Matias and Jaime went above and beyond to facilitate/translate during a health crisis of one our attendees. The leaders of our retreat, Tina and Cristina created a great daily yoga meditation curriculum. I would do it again in a heartbeat.
I had a wonderful time. Loved the resort, the teachers, experiences, yoga practice and all.
The trip was amazing! Beautiful location right on the beach, three delicious meals each day, helpful and friendly staff, lovely yoga space, wonderful yoga and fitness classes.
The Hotel Punta Monterrey was an awesome venue, and the entire trip was seamlessly organized.
Jaime, Matias, Raul and the whole staff at Punta Monterrey were so extremely welcoming and accommodating to all of our needs. It’s such a special place we can’t wait to be back!
Amazing! I could not have asked for a better group and better location to join a group of 100% random people on.
This was a unique and beautiful experience, highly recommend!!!
