Welcome to Topia!
Meet the owners, Chelle and Kris Swierz. Chelle taught yoga for 12 years in the Seattle area before making the move to Baja Sur, Mexico. She and her husband, Kris, discovered this area in 2010 when traveling to Cabo on vacation. They were looking for a destination where Kris could surf and Chelle could enjoy time in nature. Chelle and Kris instantly fell in love with the landscape and people. Discovering the perfect blend of what they both look for in a travel experience, Chelle and Kris knew this would be the perfect paradise for the Yoga retreat center of their dreams.
When they aren’t running their retreat center, Chelle and Kris enjoy surfing and yoga. They’re enthusiastic about coastal hiking and mountain exploration. Sampling the local cuisine, whale watching, stargazing and finding turtles along the beach at sunrise are some of their favorite Baja hobbies. The adventure wouldn’t be complete without their dog, Carolina, and Tope the cat along for the ride.
