Yelapa, Mexico. October 17-21, 2018.
Adventure – Exercise – Nutrition
Get away from the day-to-day routine and get energized & healthy with us in Yelapa!
Do you ever sit at your desk, looking out the window, and wonder what it would be like to disconnect and leave your normal schedule behind for a while… to get out in nature and feel what it’s like to thrive in a totally natural environment, instead of cooped up in your stuffy office?
Do you wonder if your technology and modern lifestyle are actually getting in the way of being healthy and happy?
You know that being inside all day under fluorescent lights isn’t good for you. You’re bored… of the usual brown bag lunch and you admit that your sandwich and bag of chips aren’t the best choices.
You’re tired… after work but you manage to squeeze in a quick trip to the gym on the way home. You run through a familiar set of exercises, but your mind is elsewhere thinking about your to-do list.
You tell yourself you’re going to make a change. You’re going to mix it up and try something new. You want to eat better and you want to get in better shape.
…But most importantly, you want to feel better! You want to feel fresh and excited!
You need to reconnect with the primal lifestyle!
Sure, there are many great things about modern life… such as access to information, the speed of communication, and advancements in technology.
But we continue to ask:
- How can we live in the present… without making tradeoffs in our health & fitness?
- What is the lifestyle that allows us to work with our biology… instead of against it?
Experience this primal retreat to find out!

What attendees say…
The retreat was one of the most amazing experiences of my life! The organization, attention to detail, passion and expertise that was provided by Ryan was top notch and allowed me to focus on my growth physically and mentally. Highly recommend! I will definitely do one again!
I have had the pleasure of going to Utuado and Yelapa with Prime Retreats. As someone that works behind a desk most of the time, It’s an incredible experience that connects you back to nature and natural movements that you typically don’t find yourself doing on a daily basis. Both trips have been very well organized as well as flexible to the environment we find ourselves in. I really enjoyed the nature hikes/excursions. We were able to incorporate the different natural movement techniques that we learned on site. As someone with a knee injury, I never felt like I could not do any of the different types of exercises and hikes. I was very impressed with the paleo meals. So rich and filling . They encourage you to eat as much as you can so that you have a lot of energy during our exercises. I would definitely go on another retreat. I always feel a lot better when I get back. It definitely improved my knee movement and strength.
Joining the Yelapa, Mexico retreat with Prime Retreats was amazing. Not only are the locations unbelievable but the attention to detail from Ryan is top notch. He’s very passionate about his trade and is able to help and modify natural movements to someone’s weaknesses. I have a lower back issue and he was able to change the routines slightly for me to improve my movements while erasing my lower back pain. Highly recommend Prime Retreats, if you’re looking to push yourself and learn a unique style of health and fitness.
