Escape to Chacala Bay
Chacala is the most pristine and pictureque bay on the lush coastline known as Rivieria Nayarit, with golden sand, coconut trees, and warm ocean waters year-round. A small fishing village home to approximately 400 residents, Chacala means “where there are shrimp” in Náhuatl and is one of the jewels of Mexico’s Pacific Coast. It has easy access to Puerto Vallarta International Airport, yet feels worlds apart from the big tourist developments.

Meet Your Hosts
Bethamie Wyatt (she/her) has spent more than 20 years developing and refining her craft as a multi-modality facilitator of healing. She is a Nia Technique Brown Belt instructor, Reiki Master and Emotion Code Practitioner. Her path into the healing arts was born out of her desire to feel more present, embodied, and connected to her purpose. Finding body-based practices like dance and yoga brought her back into her body and aligned her with a mission to assist others on their own inward journeys. As the founder of Bmoved Healing Therapies, she places a strong emphasis on being present and building a rapport with those she works with. She is committed to daily practices and rituals which enhance her spiritual and intuitive capacities. This consistent attunement with Spirit positions her to be of service in the most effective way, as she guides others in perceiving and releasing deeply held traumas and opening their lives to joy, balance, and new possibilities. Bethamie is excited about sharing the healing and transformational experience of dance and movement at the Together We Flow Retreat! You can learn more about Bethamie and her offerings on her website and on Instagram at @b_moved.
Stephanie Parker (she/her) is an intuitive somatic healer, Nia movement instructor, and anti-oppression facilitator based in Oakland, California. She creates affirming, trauma-informed, decolonial spaces, guiding in a nonhierarchical way that allows collective wisdom to emerge from the group. Stephanie’s compassionate approach is rooted in embodiment practices like Nia Dance and Somatic Experiencing Therapy, as well as Afro/Indigenous wisdom she has found on her own healing journey. Stephanie looks forward to co-creating sacred space with everyone at the Together We Flow Retreat! You can learn more about Stephanie and her offerings on her website, and on Instagram at @catchlight27.
