Bay of Banderas, Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

Monday, May 6th, 2024 through Saturday, May 11th, 2024 

Join us for the MOOXLI Spring 2024 retreat and go from hearing and believing your inner critic to quiet acceptance and vibrant celebration of exactly who you are today darling.

Registration for this retreat opens in July. Registration for SPRING 2024 will open to all current and past retreat and course attendees with first access exclusive sign-up for the first 7 days. After the first 7 days, all remaining spots will be opened up to the MOOXLI Email community for 7 days, and then if there are any remaining spots they will be made available to the general public. If you aren’t on the email list, get on the list by filling out the contact form at the bottom of this page. 

Before we ask you to commit, let’s make sure you understand who this retreat is for:

 You are a smart, successful, and highly motivated individual! Ask anyone and they’ll say how remarkable you are. Yet,  you ask yourself how someone with a degree, a job, and goals can be stuck in feeling unremarkable and frustrated by the lack of control they have over their choices. Let’s fix this disconnect darling! 


You want to take your inner critic off of repeat and start hearing and listening to your beautiful heart again


You want to flip your internal script from I am so tired to, I am fired up!


You want the way you feel inside to match what those around you already see on the outside


You want to understand research-proven approaches to giving up personal and professional emotional exhaustion for living an empowered life


You are a nurse and want to see and accept yourself with the same love and care that do for others


You want to learn how Yoga can become part of the way you support yourself as a person and a professional

You should join us if you want to move from wondering why someone who looks like they have it all together but feels scattered, numb and frustrated, to being able to accept, celebrate, and nourish yourself at the deepest level of your being. Let’s introduce you to who is guiding you on this journey.


Sara Bergakker

“Clinically qualified, but not emotionally equipped,” describes MOOXLI founder Sarah Bergakker, experience starting as an LPN in the emergency department at the age of 19. This theme continued as Sarah completed her bachelor’s in nursing and began work as an ER Trauma nurse, and then became a nurse anesthetist. After almost 20 years in healthcare, Sarah realized that she didn’t know what she was going to do differently but that her practices of perfectionism, numbing, and detaching from her emotional and physical self needed to change. ​Sarah started this work to discover if there was a way for her to continue to work in healthcare and find joy in her work. She is so thankful to have returned to the original passion of her calling in healthcare. ​Sarah will be sharing how self compassion and boundaries can effectively change our habits, change our lives, and ultimately support our own resilience.

The Setting:

Great news darlings! We are returning to the incredible magic of Xinalani Eco Resort in the Beautiful Bay of Banderas, Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. We heard you all when you said you missed out on this sold-out retreat location in 2023 and want your chance to join us!

Join us in the magic and wild beauty of all Xinalani has to offer. Start your mornings listening to the ocean waves, feeling gentle breezes, and jungle birds greet the day with you in the open-air yoga studio. Spend dreamy nights sleeping in once-in-a-lifetime jungle bungalows while the ocean lulls you to sleep. Xinalani has thought of everything and will be nourishing your body and soul through their farm/ocean-to-table meals and onsite spa.

Enjoy kayaking, paddle boarding, swimming, or simply lounging by the oceanfront infinity pool.

All inclusive lodging rates range from $195-$475 person/night and you have to book 5 nights lodging to attend the retreat.  Private and shared room lodging options are available.  Your retreat tuition does NOT cover your lodging, it is booked and paid for separately immediately following your retreat registration confirmation.

You can look at available rooms by clicking here and putting in the dates of the retreat. 

By the time your refreshed and recharged self boards the plane to fly back home you will have: 

Earned 20 CEs!

Learned in a supported community of your peers how to listen less to your inner critic and treat yourself with the same compassion and kindness that you give to your patients

Learned what changes you can make in your life on the daily to gain big momentum

Know exactly what you are going to do on the Monday after the retreat, how to handle the Sunday Scaries, and know you aren’t going back to real life, you are going back to YOUR life

Learned how to figure out what the heck you do want out of life and how to get it

Learned that you don’t have to be able to fold yourself into a pretzel to practice yoga and move your body in a way that supports you

"What Sarah Bergakker and her MOOXLI team have created is pure magic.  Sarah took her own experience, strength, and hope and not only shined a light on burnout in the healthcare profession, but she took it a step further and created MOOXLI."
