san pancho beach

Imagine... a luxury beachfront, jungle surrounded villa, warm water, sunny days, fresh fruit, challenging daily workouts, exciting adventures, 1-on-1 body work sessions, delicious margaritas and endless good times. Got it? You have just pictured yourself at The Balanced Experience, a week long health, wellness and adventure retreat.

Villa Papelillos, San Pancho, Mexico


This retreat is designed to make you feel good. It is a lovechild of my undying love of travel and my passion for health and fitness. I want to make every person feel their best through bodywork, exercise, self care sessions, adventure, education, and being surrounded other like minded individuals. My goal is to make sure you feel better when you leave than when you arrived, not only physically, but mentally and spiritually as well. We guarantee you will feel relaxed, revitalized, inspired, and healthier. You are going to eat incredible food, detox digitally, move freely, de-stress and meet other incredible people. The retreat will have structure without being constrained and allow everyone to push their boundaries without forcing themselves completely outside of their comfort zone. We will eat delicious and healthy vegan food, while perhaps indulging in a few Mexican treats or cocktails. The perfect blend of BALANCE. 


A 7 night, 6 day health and fitness retreat lead by Danielle Boyd and Ally Bradshaw in incredible San Pancho, Mexico.

The nearest airport is 45 minutes away in Puerto Vallarta.

The Balanced Experience 2017

The Balanced Experience 2017


Anyone and everyone is welcome. We are looking for individuals who are keen to move, play, and love to explore and meet other like minded people. Your fitness level is not important, all workouts and adventures are tailored to your needs and abilities. The only criteria is your desire to have FUN!

What you can expect...

A typical day in the life during The Balanced Experience would start around 8am with a quick but effective HIIT workout on the pool deck or beach, follow by poolside fresh pressed juice and a delicious vegan breakfast. Next, we will pack our things and head out on a local adventure such as surf lessons, stand-up paddle boarding or hiking. Most afternoons will be free time where you can explore town, have some down time on the beach or choose your own adventure. We will reconvene in the early evening for our delicious in house prepared vegan dinner with a glass of vino. We will wrap up our evening with rooftop, candlelit yoga under the stars or some gentle self care like rolling or stretching, followed by perhaps a cheeky margarita or cerveza as a night cap.
