Welcome to the sun-kissed shores of Puerto Vallarta! With a girls’ trip meets adventure camp-style experience, you’ll get to immerse yourself in a one-of-a-kind adventure retreat that will fill you with strength, empowerment and rejuvenation! In the spirit of creating a brave space for our community to do all the things, I’ve joined forces with plus-size paddleboard instructor and Puerto Vallarta native, Georgina Shaffer, to bring you the world’s first plus-size Aerial Yoga + Paddleboarding adventure retreat.

Soar into the size-inclusive practice of aerial movement and be guided through dynamic and restorative sessions suited for all levels. You will pair your aerial practice with adventure through paddleboarding lessons and excursions out on the beautiful Pacific Ocean.

The MIXTO resort will exclusively host NAKOA Adventure for the week giving our adventurers the ultimate getaway haven. An experience for plus-size women to come together, connect, create community, fill your cup and have fun!
