The Ixchel System Mexico Retreat

Cancun, Mexico

December 12-16, 2023

We would like to invite you to the first ever Ixchel retreat held in Mexico this December! Come and join us on this 5-day transformative journey, where you will learn the basics of The Ixchel System methodology and learn how to release or prevent tension and pain throughout your body. The Ixchel methodology is a pioneering program that helps to realign your physical, emotional and spiritual body. This methodology teaches you how to self sooth your body by identifying and releasing unconscious patterns and trauma that are stored in your cell memories. During the workshop you will learn how to regulate your autonomic nervous system, to move your body out of contraction caused by negative emotions, and how to ease any tension and pain that is causing discomfort. Using 3D joint movements during the exercises we will achieve internal alignment that has been lost and restore ease and balance within your body and improve the overall body & mind relationship.

We are hosting our first retreat on the Yucatan peninsula in Mexico, as it is the birthplace of the Goddess of Ixchel and where the Ixchel System took inspiration from. Ixchel was the wife of the God of The Sun and was worshipped as the Mayan deity of the moon, symbolizing love and medicine. Within our work at Ixchel System, the goddess symbolizes the harmony between ancient natural medicine and modern approach to health and healing. To finish the transformative retreat you will have the chance to connect with the heritage of Ixchel paying visit to her temples on the Island of Cozumel and on Isla Mujeres (Isle of women).

What techniques will we use?

Here is some information about the ITEC and FHT Accredited Get Into Your Body Methodology

Throughout Get Into Your Body Level 1 you will learn fundamental movement practices along with biomechanics theory, ensuring you understand the basis of biomechanics self-assessment and how your centre of mass has the power to hinder or heal your movement and balance.

As the course progresses, you'll piece together exactly how pain conditions and emotional stress lock your body up. You'll discover the key to releasing habitual movement patterns that could potentially damage your body or simply hinder your performance in sports or other daily activities.

Module 1 – The Body and Foot Pressure

Relevant to conditions including Plantar Fasciitis, Ankle Strain and Sprain, Achilles Pain, Bunions and other foot pain.

Orientated in a clock face, you will discover the tripods in your feet, immediately giving a sense of connection and support.

Learn how to correct your balance and bring yourself back to your centre. We will look at how joint movements and gravity limit movement and restrict your muscles, relieving or compounding pressure in your back and feet.

Module 2 – Mobilising the Hips & Pelvis

Relevant to conditions including Sciatic Pain, Herniated Disc Hip Pain, Lower Back Pain, Stiffness, Lack of Mobility and Flexibility.

A unique walk through the movements of your hips and pelvis. Let’s reveal what is stuck and get it moving.

Learn how to correct your balance and bring yourself back to your centre. We will look at how joint movements and gravity limit movement and restrict your muscles, relieving or compounding pressure in your back and feet.

Module 3 – Spinal Alignment

Relevant to conditions including Sciatic Pain, Herniated Disc Hip Pain, Lower Back Pain, Stiffness, Lack of Mobility and Flexibility, Digestive Problems and Emotional Trauma Dissociation.

Understand how your hip flexors and pelvic tilt can help your spine feel perfectly aligned in three planes of movement.

It’s time to get your rib cage aligned with your pelvis. To do this, we work from your hips and legs, bringing your upper body into alignment so that your feet are finally able to evenly balance much of the weight of your upper body.

Module 4 – Rib Cage Release

Relevant to conditions including Frozen Shoulder and Rotator-Cuff Injury as well as Breathing Problems, Digestive Problems, High Blood Pressure and Heart Problems.

A unique approach to bring immediate ease to your body with the alignment of your spine and rib cage.

In this class as you begin to understand how to move your rib cage through three plains and self-assess different ranges of movement. You may be able to identify how you barely inhabit this part of your body as we use the breath, arms, and spine to remind your chest how to let go.

Module 5 – Shoulders & Arms

Relevant to conditions including Frozen Shoulder and Rotator-Cuff Injury.

In this fascinating workshop, we will dismantle the shoulders so that you understand the specific movement of your shoulder blades and how they can move independently of your upper arm shoulder joints.

This workshop creates a profound shift for your upper body, giving you the power to finally release tension and stuck muscles that have simply forgotten what's possible for your body.

Module 6 – Neck Open/Shut

Relevant to conditions including Chronic Neck Pain, Headaches, Migraine, Dizziness, Social Anxiety.

Using the Clock Face and Plains of Movement, we will begin to explore how your neck and your chest or rib cage often move as one unit.

Also looking at the breath, we put everything together to get your body connected to your gait Internally as well as structurally.

Module 7 – Integrating the Jaw & Breath with your Body

Relevant to conditions including TMJ, Teeth Grinding, Breathing Problems.

This final Workshop allows you to understand the impact of your jaw closed tight rather than open and relaxed on the rib cage, pelvis, hips, and feet.

Also looking at the Breath, we put everything together to get your Body connected to your Gait Internally as well as Structurally.
