Sayulita, Mexico Yoga Retreat — SOLD OUT!
Salute the Sun in Sayulita!
February 15th - 20th, 2019
5 days of yoga, surfing, delicious organic food, and fun!
Sayulita is a sleepy little beach town 25 miles north of Puerto Vallarta along the Riviera Nayarit, a 200-mile stretch of the Pacific Coastline in Mexico. This small town is known for its relaxed hippy vibe, wave surfing, and rich Huichol artisan culture. It offers world class surfing, kayaking, snorkeling, boating, fishing, whale watching, cycling, horse back riding on secluded beaches and treks through surrounding jungles just minutes from the hotel.
This five day retreat in sunny Sayulita will be the perfect little getaway to paradise in the middle of winter! We will meditate on the beach each morning then return to the hotel for a fresh organic smoothie and coffee. We will have a morning yoga practice in one of the beautiful thatched roof studios and then enjoy a delicious organic breakfast buffet together. Daily activities are up to you, but surfing and/or sun bathing are always easily accessible options! I am so excited to explore this charming little town and discover all the magic it has to offer... I hope you will join me!
The venue: Hotelito los sueÑos
I searched and searched and finally decided on what I believe will be the perfect little spot for us to reside! Hotelito los Sueños, or "Little Hotel of Dreams", is a place to relax and indulge in the quaint tropical seaside village of Sayulita. Here you will find comfort, tranquility, and a high level of service. It is just a quick five minute walk to the beach so it is close enough to the action but far enough that you can still get a peaceful night's sleep away from the buzz of the busy beach street. At Hotelito los Sueños, their goal is to provide you the best experience possible; clean, secure, tasteful and comfortable guest rooms, two beautiful pools, two well-equipped and clean yoga shalas, delicious organic food, and even boogie boards and bicycles to use free of charge!
Other features include:
Fridge in every room
Two Pools (new salt water pool!)
Smoothie bar/Breakfast buffet
Complimentary bikes & boogie boards
WiFi is available in all areas and is free of charge
In-house massage therapist... just $18/60 minutes for retreat participants
Mountain bike lockup area

With a couple exceptions due to excursions or other activities, you can expect at least two 75-90 minute yoga classes per day. One will be a Power Yoga class. This will be a dynamic and energetic class and will require a basic knowledge of the physical postures... however, plenty of modifications will be given and there is ALWAYS room to listen to your own body and take it at your own pace. The other practice will be gentle and more restorative -- ranging anywhere from Yin to Restore to Soft Flow.
Meditation will be held each morning for about 30 minutes.
Arrival and Departure
Plan to arrive at Puerto Vallarta Airport (PVR) anytime on Friday February 15th. There will be four separate private shuttles for our group leaving from the airport at different times throughout the day. The exact times for shuttle departure will be determined once the retreat gets closer and people start booking their flights. Once you have booked your flight, please forward me your itinerary via email.
If you would like to arrive early or stay longer that is completely fine but you will need to get your own transportation to and from the hotelito.
All participants must have a valid passport. Your passport must be valid for at least 6 months after your departure date.
Full refunds will be given up until October 1, 2018. Cancellations after this date will forfeit the $300 deposit but will refunded the rest. No refunds will be given after January 1, 2019. No exceptions.
This is intended to be an adults only retreat. Please no children under the age of 18.
