WHERE WE WILL STAY
As if the pictures don’t do itself justice! ISN’T THIS SPACE EXQUISITE?
We will be taking “Glamping” to an even Glampier level as we snuggle in for 6 days on the western coastline of the Baja peninsula. Tucked in a secluded cactus grove and steps away from the wild and beautiful pacific coastline, Gypsy Canyon is just a short drive from the town of Todos Santos. It is perfectly located for gathering, reflecting, relaxing and enjoying the incredible natural beauty of southern Baja. It will also allow you to enjoy sleeping under the stars without sacrificing the services and amenities that make your stay feel luxurious.
Your shared tent will welcome you with a queen bed and plenty of places to keep your belongings. Cabana beds and chillout zones are scattered throughout the property. And yes, there are bathrooms and electricity - all the amenities you’d find in a traditional brick and mortar space but with oodles and oodles of #instaworthy charm!! Multiple bathrooms have hot showers, luxury bath products and fantastic water pressure.
WHAT WE WILL DO
Our first evening together you’ll be greeted with a full moon and a Shamanic Cleansing ritual. This first night will set the stage and lead us into an incredible week of expansive growth, adventurous fun and nourishment for both mind & body. You’ll have the opportunity to take a cooking class from our personal chef, SUP or Kayak in the crystal blue waters of Balandra Bay, explore and elevate your personal business with workshops geared to impact your influence, and find deep relaxation with Yoga Nidra. It will be a full week of fueling your body and mind.

of Roots & Wings Wellness
Hi y’all! I'm Jamie and am SO excited to connect, travel and adventure with and get to know you! I’m ready to link arms with you for a LIFE CHANGING EXPERIENCE together!.
I hail from Bend, Oregon where I live with my husband Jamie (#JamieSquared) and our NINE fur-babies (5 dogs, 4 cats). I am passionate about empowering women in my career as a lifestyle & wellness coach. I have made it my life's work to help women live the fullest extent of their ability and purpose while also contributing to our surrounding communities to leave each encounter better than we found it.
I am a RYT 400 (two RYT 200s), have my MEd in School Counseling, YogaCalm© certified and am the founder of ROOTS & WINGS WELLNESS | HEART & SOL ADVENTURES. I have spent my years “Adulting” as a school counselor, waitress and outdoor adventure guide (rafting, rock climbing, ropes course facilitating and summer camp guru) - ‘hats’ that I have hung up to create the space for the pursuits I have now - running a virtual coaching business, investing in local start-ups in Bend and hosting incredible travel / wellness adventures for incredible humans LIKE THIS ONE!
I am passionate about helping women, men and families live healthier and more fulfilling lives; I strive to make fitness fun for all, nutrition simple and to educate on the importance of detoxing, eating clean and learning to be in-tune with our bodies. All of this in the spirit of self love and gratitude. I am passionate about mental health and teaching the foundational skills of gratitude, goal-setting, positive self talk/ affirmations and manifesting one's dreams & desires (while also putting in the elbow grease to earn the things we want).
I'm so honored to guide you on this experience and self-discovery and I know we will have a life changing time and make forever memories. I believe we are stewards on this EARTH and have a responsibility to protect and advocate for our planet and social injustice in our world/country! Service, environmentalism and advocacy is interwoven in ALL that I do.
6 years into entrepreneurship and reaching the highest achievements and milestones in my fitness coaching business have cultivated in me a PASSION for helping other dreamers and entrepreneurs identify their dreams and believe in their greatness (because YOU, my friend, are a phenomenal and capable being!!) … and help them ACHIEVE IT! Nothing fuels MY soul more than mentoring other entrepreneurs in building the life of their dreams, achieving freedom and making an impact on the world. BUT IT IS HARD, RIGHT?? Business, entre-leadership, social media, sales - it is gosh dang hard WORK and without the support of my mentors and guides along the way I would have been so lost. So now I pay the skills and knowledge I have forward to help others blaze their trail to greatness too!
Nicole Diaz of Nutmeg Yoga
“You are one step and one breath away from finding your peace in nature”
- these are words I live by.
Hola, I’m Nicole, a native Texan who curates yoga hiking adventures across Connecticut. I am passionate about making yoga + hiking accessible to all because I believe both are powerful tools to build a stronger mind, body, and spirit of resilience to meet life’s challenges.
As a social worker, yoga + hiking helped me create balance and cultivate compassion not only for myself but the families I strived to empower with the skills needed to provide a safe environment for abused children.
I hold certifications in RYT 200, Wilderness First Aid, American Red Cross CPR and am pursuing independent study as a Master Naturalist to better inspire the next generation of conservationists.
Off my mat/trails, I can be found teaching aqua-zumba in the Caribbean and demonstrating my love languages of acts of service + quality time to family and friends by cooking them healthyish farm-to-table Latinx meals. Facilitating opportunitites for people to connect to themselves and the great outdoors brings me joy and I look forward to supporting you in your growth journey on this one wild planet we share y’all.
