Many things happen inside our soul when we embrace the quiet, the stillness, the meditative state of the ocean surf and the cool Pacific breeze.

We Release.

We find our deep restorative breath instead of relying on the shallow breathing that consumes our daily, busy and overwhelming life. 

We Exhale.

We experience inner calm, a peace, and a return of our natural biorhythms that tell the story of where we have been and where we are hoping to go.

We Rise.

The ocean surf shares its power as it builds strength in our spirit and reminds us of our vulnerability as it recedes with the tide.

We Connect.

We become one with the nature all around us, and we look at the abundance in the life that teems in the ocean below. Swimming alongside creates that are as uniquely curious about us as we are about them.

We Restore.

When you travel to a destination know as, “A Place of Peace” what else would you expect?

Michelle and Keith can’t wait to join you in LaPaz as we release, exhale, rise, connect and restore. 

Your hosts:
Michelle Steinke-Baumgard & Keith Baumgard

Michelle Steinke-Baumgard is an author for HarperCollins, speaker, fitness coach, mother and a re-married widow. After losing her husband Mitch in 2009, she turned to exercise as an outlet for grief and a way to handle stress. Michelle found it so powerful that she eventually quit her corporate VP job to become a fitness coach. Since then Michelle has been featured in Fitness Magazine, Shape Magazine, contributed to articles for Prevention Magazine, The Huffington Post, and countless other media outlets.  

Keith Baumgard is the Co-Founder of My1FitLife, and Live the List Nonprofit. Fitness has been a life-long passion of his, starting from a young age. Keith’s degree is in Exercise Science and Sports Medicine allowing him to extensively learn and study the anatomy and physiology of the body, specifically the muscular system. Having a background in this allows him to continually develop unique and effective exercise programs. He started his career as a personal trainer right out of college and continue to work with clients still today. In 2004 he lost his best friend in a plane crash and realized how important exercise and fitness is in helping with the grieving process. His greatest reward is seeing others achieve their goals and live up to their full potential.

The Snorkel Trip to Los Islotes is by far one of our most popular trips, and with good reason!

Visit Los Islotes, a beautiful coral reef island that is home to a colony of California sea lions; throughout the Sea of Cortez area, this colony is commonly referred to as “the friendliest sea lion colony in Mexico,” due to how playful and interactive these animals are with humans. In addition to the sea lions, Los Islotes also boasts a beautiful coral reef and a wide array of fish species. This is truly a life changing and incredible excursion to not be missed! After swimming, enjoy a scenic boat ride to an island where we will enjoy a beachside lunch, have more time to swim and snorkel too, or just relax! On the scenic boat ride home, we may just be visited by the dolphins that like to play in the wake! 

Each year between October and February, we have unique visitors that gather into the bay of La Paz to feed on plankton – whale sharks!

Contrary to their names and their massive size (up to 40 feet/12 meters long, and weigh on average 5 tons), whale sharks are not harmful. Although they are the world’s largest fish species, these beautiful sharks filter-feed on tiny plankton as they swim slowly along. Their calm and gentle nature allows us to swim and snorkel with them. Being alongside a whale shark is truly a lifetime experience. No words can express the thrill and amazement. This excursion runs from either 9-11 and or 1-3:30 pm. Specific time to be determined.
