MEXICO YOGA RETREAT

November 21-28, 2022

Yoga, meditation, nature hikes, surf and more...

Join me and Kristin Campbell for an 8 day/7 night deeply relaxing and rejuvenating journey with yoga, meditation and nature hikes on the beautiful Pacific Coast of Mexico.

Away from the hustle and bustle, the retreat is nestled between palm trees on a white sand beach 20 minutes from Puerto Vallarta. Surrounded by nature and only accessible by boat it is the perfect environment for you to slow down, reawaken your senses and simply “just be”.

 

Whether you are seeking to take a break from your busy life, delve deeper into yoga, go on hikes and surf or simply treat yourself and relax, you are welcome to join. You will leave feeling nourished, recharged and blissful from the inside out.

The experience

We will find nourishment of body, mind and soul through delicious plant-based food, twice daily yoga sessions, nature walks, the therapeutic vibrations of gong and other sacred instruments, luscious massages and other natural therapies.

 

By breathing mindfully in unspoiled nature and using a variety of meditations, from silence & stillness to movement & visualisation, we will expand our life force and find our way back into harmony with ourselves and the world around us.

 

You will have the option to join lovingly crafted workshops, sharing circles and special gatherings that will help you to feel inspired, gain new perspectives and learn new ways to support your inner transformation.

This retreat is a beautiful opportunity to connect with like-minded people and forge new friendships, or just simply enjoy some private time meditating amongst the shady palm trees between activities.

 

You will also have plenty of free time to enjoy all that this magical place has to give. If you like staying active during your holiday you can take part in our nature hike to one of the local waterfalls, take surf lessons, go snorkelling, paddle boarding or join a whale watching tour. If you prefer to just relax and bask in the sunshine with a refreshing cocktail, you can do just that in one of the hammocks on our beach.

The teachers

Veronika Pongracz

 

Veronika stepped on the path of yoga 10 years ago, and travelled around the globe training in various styles of yoga, meditation and sound therapy. She teaches mindful movement infused with powerful & fluid elements from yang yoga and restorative & meditative elements from yin yoga and yoga nidra.

Having been passionate about sound and music from an early age, Veronika had 12 years of musical training in piano before discovering Tibetan singing bowls and gongs. Her sound bath will be an immersion in beautiful sound vibrations that are healing for your body, mind and spirit.

Kristin Campbell

 

With passion, precision and a dose of mama-bear love, Kristin teaches embodied-alignment based hatha-vinyasa yoga. You will be encouraged to move slowly and deliberately, building strength and ‘tapas’, your sacred fire on the mat, to nurture your capacity to be with yourself, and thus discover, accept, love, embody and express yourself.

With 21 years of teaching experience, Kristin is passionate about sharing these ancient, time-tested practices to those who are curious about personal growth.

The venue

Our retreat is located on a quiet, white sand beach. It is a little piece of paradise south of Puerto Vallarta. Only accessible by water, the oceanfront retreat provides a unique experience and connection with nature.

The retreat has 13 rooms eco-chic, called ‘casitas’. You can choose from basic, standard, deluxe and suite categories, with single occupancy, two, three or four people sharing. Each casita has its own bathroom, fan and safe. Some of the rooms have AC and their own terrace.

The casitas are decorated with Huichol textile, hand-embroidered cushions and natural fiber rugs. Complimentary Wi-Fi is available throughout the retreat and you can choose from a variety of massages, holistic therapies and beauty treatments.

The food

Using the bountiful abundance of fresh local produce Mexico has to offer, the chefs will prepare delicious, predominantly plant-based meals for you. Packed with nutrients, the meals are designed to cleanse and lighten you mentally and physically. Each full day a substantial buffet brunch and a three course dinner are included in your package. You can choose between vegan, vegetarian and pescatarian options.

If you fancy a snack during the day you can order lunch or smoothies from the retreat’s menu, or try one of the traditional Mexican restaurants on the beach that also serve locally sourced meat, and freshly caught fish and seafood.

Other travel recommendations to add to your trip 

If you have a bit more time you might want to add a stop or two to your trip for a culturally rich and colourful experience.

If you have any questions just ask!

 

Mexico City

Stay in Roma Norte, La Condesa or the Historical District. Get around the city on a bike (ECOBICI), on foot, public transportation, or an Uber. All of the above are safe, and a great way to explore all Mexico City has to offer; artisan and food markets, street food, fancy (and affordable) restaurants, cathedrals, museums, galleries, Chapultepec Botanical Garden, the ruins at Teotihuacan, and so much more.

 

Oxaca City

For more culture, colour and exquisite food fly to Oxaca from Mexico City or take an overnight bus. Rent a mountain bike and tour around the countryside, making your way to El Tule, Mexico’s most famous tree. Rent a car and day trip out to Hierve El Agua, a petrified waterfall and natural springs. Visit Teotitlán del Valle, famous for textiles and stunning rugs or the Inca ruins at Monte Alban. Check out Mercado 20 de Noviembre, a food market where you will want to try absolutely everything! Join a Mezcal distillery tour - there’s plenty of places between Teotitlan and El Tule.
