More is not better. Eliminate the “no pain, no gain” mentality.

At Hacienda del Sol we believe physical movement should be treated as a nutrient that feeds your freedom to move and melts away stress hormones. Activities that accomplish this is what we call nutritious movement. Nutritious movement is also about cultivating a deeper connection with your body and not just pushing as hard as you can so you can to burn more calories or get “better results”. The best results come when you use physical activity to melt stress hormones and gain pain free movement. You do this by going to your edge but not falling past it. You know you’ve gone past it when you are performing a physical activity purely using a stress hormone dump. This is experienced as a feeling of separation from your body or the infamous tunnel vision. The antidote for this is to always remain mindful of what you are doing. Nutritious movement conditions you that when you are experiencing a mind-body disconnection, you will slow down, reconnect, and then continue exploring your edge while never going over it. This guarantees you’ll be processing the stress hormones rather than adding to your daily stress load, and safely expanding your physical freedom.

Our primal yoga classes, reflect and recharge classes, and primal fitness classes, are all rich with nutritious movement.

Primal Yoga:

  • It moves dynamically between tensión and releasing, the Yang and the Yin.
  • Focus is on movement. 90 blissful minutes of dipping in and out into flow state.

Primal Fitness:

  • High intensity training, rich in ranges of motion.
  • Primal fitness offers an antidote for the no pain, no gain mentality that inevitably leads to injury.
  • Engage in progressive body movement exercises that take you to your limit while still managing to strengthen your body-mind connection.

Reflect & Recharge Classes:

  • A collection of western and eastern Yin practices focused on activating the parasympathetic nervous system in unique ways, while teaching you the essential skill of processing the stress that has accumulated through out the day, therefore avoiding the eventual condition of chronic stress.
  • Is nature calling you? 🌿🧐
To be quiet in nature is something that not all of us get to do everyday. If you’re not use to it, it might even feel uncomfortable. But when you allow it to touch you, and you feel it’s presence, there is not nothing more nourishing, soothing, and healing. 
Research is showing that being in nature, or even viewing scenes of nature, reduces anger, fear, and stress and increases pleasant feelings. Exposure to nature not only makes you feel better emotionally, it contributes to your physical wellbeing, reducing blood pressure, heart rate, muscle tension, and the production of stress hormones. 
In a time when so many of us are experiencing stress and anxiety, we encourage you to connect with the natural gifts of the earth. Take some time this weekend to connect with nature, slow down, and just see how you feel!

the humbling sight of 
an endless blue horizon – there’s no denying the restorative effects of the ocean.

In fact, the sea is steeped in healing history with its extensive salt water benefits. Victorian doctors prescribed seaside trips, while the ancient Greeks soaked in the mineral-rich water. 
A recent study also found that your proximity to the coast correlates to your health. Ready to dive in?
