Happy is the New Healthy Retreat in Cabo (March 11-13, 2016)

A 3 Day Yoga + Meditation Retreat

                  Cabo San Lucas, Mexico (March 11-13, 2016)

The inspiration behind my new book HAPPY IS THE NEW HEALTHY is a 111 year old lady that I got to know her over the past few years of her life. She was the happiest person I ever met. What were her secrets to happiness?

“SEX, VODKA, AND SPICY FOOD!” Those were her words, if you can believe that!Happy is the new healthy by Yeah Dave!

That’s the spirit behind my 3 day Yoga + Meditation Retreat in Cabo. This retreat will take place March 11-13 at Casa del Mar. SHARE WITH YOUR FRIENDS

I will teach you a unique style of yoga and meditation that integrates exotic chocolate and fine wine. Why? The Harvard Business Review reports that happiness comes from frequency of positive experience.  That means, little moments of joy spread throughout each and everyday. Take time to savor the chocolate, enjoy the wine, slow down for the sunsets, and remember that life is precious.

Whether you are brand new or experienced in yoga and meditation, my approach is entertaining, delicious, and engaging for everyone of any level.  But more than anything, it’s the reminder to carve out a weekend to get back in alignment with what matters most in life.


My name is Dave Romanelli. I have been leading retreats for 15 years, which have been featured in Food & Wine and The New York Times. I have written two bestselling books, which make wellness relatable to those of you who want to be healthy but still want to CARPE THE HECK OUTTA YOUR DIEM!

If you’d like to see more, following is our retreat schedule:

Friday night, March 11: Yoga + Wine   6:00pm-8:00pm

Accessible to both absolute beginners and advanced yoga students, this flowing vinyasa yoga class will relax your body and open your taste buds, shedding light on the proverb: “Enjoy yourself. It’s later than you think.”  The aging process can be embraced, or resisted. It’s all a matter of perspective.  As John Barrymore said, “You don’t age until your regrets outnumber your dreams.” After class, Dave will guide you on a tasting of fine wine to savor the moment.

Saturday morning, March 12:  Yoga + Chocolate    8:00am-10am

This deep stretch, super relaxing yoga class will rejuvenate your sensory awareness and remind you that the greatest memories are best captured as scents, tastes, and sounds…not photos and videos on the iPhone.  If you have been spending too much time worrying and getting in your own way… there is never as good a time as NOW to wake up and celebrate the simple pleasures and small victories.  After class, you will enjoy a guided tasting of exotic Vosges Chocolate bars and truffles and remember…everything is sweeter when experienced in the present moment!

Saturday evening, March 12: Learn to Meditate (and laugh your ass off!)    4:00-6:00pm

The human brain is the most complex thing ever discovered in the universe. If you took a piece of your brain no bigger than the tip of a pen and stretched all the neurons in that tiny piece of brain, they would extend 2 miles in length. That’s how intricate the circuitry is in the human brain. BUT…the average human being loses their attention span 6-8 times per minute. I will teach you the basics of meditation,  and how to harness the immense power of your mind. This is a unique style of meditation that makes the practice entertaining and relatable. If you are interested in soothing your mind and spending more time relaxing and less time worrying, my approach to meditation will hit just the right spot.

Sunday morning, March 13:  Why Happy is the New Healthy    8:00am-10am

I will share tips and tools on how to maximize happiness. The tendency is to say to ourselves, “I will be happy…when my back feels better” or “I will be happy…when the economy improves” or “I will be happy… when I find love in my life.” If you place conditions on your happiness now, you’ll have conditions on your happiness 10 years from now. It takes a certain kind of mental strength and emotional fortitude to embrace your challenges and love your life! The subtitle of my new book is “31 Ways to Relax, Let Go, and Enjoy Life NOW” and in this talk, I will share stories, videos, and inspiration on rising above the stresses and anxieties and living your life to the fullest. Hint: Don’t think so much (;
