Yelapa Yoga Retreat in Mexico
Jan 16, 2015| $1295
This retreat offers a combination of meditation, hiking and beach in Yelapa, Mexico from January 16th to the 24th of 2015 for a total price of $1,295
Yelapa Yoga Oneness Retreat offers yoga, meditation, and much more for every body, an affordable, wonderful opportunity to relax, renew, and rejuvenate. Yelapa is a delightful Mexican fishing village, located on a sleepy little bay just south of Puerto Vallarta. Since there are no roads to Yelapa (one of the things we love most about the town!), we take a 45 minute boat ride from Puerto Vallarta to the village. As there are no roads in Yelapa, there are no cars, less noise, less pollution and less stress. The donkeys used for transport make their own noise and pollution, but we’ll manage! Temperatures in January: refreshing 60-65 at night, 75- 80 in the day. Note: This is the dry season, so normally lots of sun. The food is fresh and delicious, including local fish, chicken, enchiladas, tortillas, ceviche, beans, avocado, pies, fruit (papaya, banana, pineapple, melon, etc.). Fresh fruit beverages. Yum.
Upon arrival we hike up (184 steps — great for free bare footed reflexology session!) to our home for the week, Casa Milagros (House of Miracles). Located on a hill above town, we enjoy an incredible view of the bay, sometimes spotting whales while we dine on the patio, or as we stretch with our roof top yoga.
Note: If 5 star luxury and big rooms are your craving, we may not be for you, andmost of the rooms have shared bath. But we offer great food, personalized service, compassionate teachings, conscious and healthy travel, clean accommodations,and magical surroundings with incredible views.
We practice yoga on the roof patio, overlooking the bay and village, accompanied by the rising or setting sun. We generally do sunrise and sunset yoga, and various Oneness Awakening courses, with profound teachings, meditations, processes and blessings. We will have plenty of activities scheduled, yet keeping things as flexible and open as possible to allow people to create their own experience, with free time to relax, swim or snorkel every day, roam the village, hike the river valley, play in waterfalls, sip from coconuts, or drink fresh fruit juices on the beach. There are extra options available for a very reasonable fee, including massage, whale watching, fishing, snorkeling and other boat trips, island visits, parasailing, etc. Note: Everything is optional, but we encourage you to attend the yoga and Oneness classes to help create a sacred energy for the group
