Join Vessel on a 7 day, 6 night pottery and yoga retreat, bringing you an experience like no other - a perfect blend of restoration and pleasure in a hidden oasis in San Jose del Cabo, Mexico. Find yourself immersed in a private oasis just off the tip of the Baja California Peninsula where the Sea of Cortez meets the Pacific Ocean. Known for its abundance of beautiful beaches, fishing community, art and cuisine; it also has a very special contrast of desert, ocean and sea.

Our primary focus is on creating an environment where people have the opportunity to join with others to deepen their creative pottery and yoga practices, and making space for the body, mind and soul to rest and restore, whilst participating authentically in their own self-discovery.


We believe that cultural immersion is an essential part of wellness. Throughout your stay, you will have the opportunity to delve into the vibrant Mexican culture, discovering its profound benefits for personal growth and wellbeing. Engage in traditional ceremonies, using indigenous herbs and botanicals, where you'll experience the cleansing power of steam and connect with ancient rituals that promote spiritual and physical healing.

Baja is a place that celebrates diversity, creativity, artistry and sustainability, feeding the soul. Live musical performances and curated visual art exhibits - makes this special place for you to rekindle your creative energy!

Book your wellness retreat today and embark on an unforgettable adventure that will leave you inspired, refreshed, and forever changed. Viva la vida!
