Loreto Bay, Baja Mexico Writing Retreat

Join me Monday February 3 - 8, 2020 for a 5 day Writing & Pilates Retreat!

Arrive Monday, February 3 for the welcome dinner!  (If you arrive before I can help you make arrangements at the local hotel)

Leave on Saturday, February 8th, or you can choose to extend your stay on either side.

Join Tammy L. Coia (The Memoir Coach) and Jaime K. Ullman (Pilates Studio Owner-Educator – pilatesblue.com) as they join together to bring a dynamic women’s retreat focusing on your body, mind and soul.

Tammy has inspired hundreds of women to look inward and write from a place deep within all the while making sure each woman feels safe and nurtured. Tammy lived a few years in Baja and will be taking you to some of her favorite locations. We will have time to write and reflect and also to be of service one afternoon on a visit to Casa de Cultura where we will get to meet and work one on one with children learning English. It is one of the highlights of the trip to see their excitement when we arrive! One day we will drive down to Magdalena Bay where we will take an excursion out to see the gray whales where the mothers come to give birth. With a little luck the whales will come to our boat and you will get to see them up close and personal!

Jaime, from Culver City, Ca will be bringing her energy in the form of Pilates Matwork. With her abundance of movement experience on all Pilates apparatus, she will share her passion for the Mat; you will sweat, smile & amaze yourself while you workout. The sessions will be 55 minutes long. All levels are welcome.

The mornings will be for a Pilates session for those who would love to stretch and move followed by a writing session led by Tammy.

The afternoons are open for one on one sessions with both Tammy and Jaime.

1:1 sessions with Jaime will be Wellness, Health and Life Coaching; she welcomes you to a complimentary clarity session to assist you in making a shift in your life, whether it be relationship, career, health or anything that is on your mind. These sessions can be 30 – 60 minutes.

All meals are included on this retreat. You will stay at a beautiful hotel located right on the Sea of Cortez. Single and shared accommodations are available! Just come ready to stretch and write and be inspired by the beauty of the location and the people of Baja!
Arrive on Monday, February 3 for an evening welcome reception and dinner. We will finish up on Saturday morning with a closing  ceremony and you can catch your flight back to the mainland that day or stay a few extra days (contact Tammy for hotel arrangements).

Loreto Writing Retreat Testimonials

Tammy, dear Tammy…

This week has been invaluable!  Not only have you revitalized me and reignited that desire to write, write, write!, I’ve gained volumes of resource information about the craft.  The daily prompts have been a tremendous confidence builder, and a wonderful way to explore what a treasure writing can be.

I believe the retreat brought each of closer as writing companions, gave us all amazing inspiration, and sent us home willing to be more vulnerable as we share our stories.
I’m so grateful you have the love, the openness of heart, and the desire to use your gift
for teaching in such a beautiful way.

With loads of affection,
Marcia (Juno, Alaska)

Tammy’s workshops are so inspiring (this is my 3rd!)  I love the way she creates a safe and welcoming place for women writers to explore their experiences and show them using an endless arsenal of writing prompts that help participants cut to the heart of whatever they are writing, and enjoy lots of camaraderie and laughs along the way.

Warning: Not for the faint of heart!

Another week, another one of Tammy’s writing retreats.  We are all exhausted from the wealth of information we have absorbed, inspired by Tammy’s mantra, “yes you can!” Where have I heard that before!   I have written with Tammy in Loreto (3 times, Calgary and last year in Greece).  We have shared our stories, laughed, and cried until the tears fell.  We have invented scenes, characters and brought them to life under Tammy’s guidance.  We have found a place in each other’s hearts as they ours.  We want to adopt Tammy as our sister.  When is the next one?

Where do I begin?  This was my second retreat with Tammy.  Although different from my first, nothing is ever the same, it was equally wonderful.  Tammy provides such a warm, safe, inspiring space in which to write.  You will grow, share, learn, laugh and cry.  You will question, dig deep, be inspired and be supported.  You will make wonderful friends with women who share your passion for writing.  Tammy is an extraordinary and encouraging teacher. And best of all, you will write!  Thank you Tammy with my whole heart for helping me to unleash and grow my passion for writing.  Until next time…I really can’t wait.  I love you!
