It is in the union of body, mind, and breath that you will find true balance
As an Englishman looking out on the continuous grey rain of his country, the thought of a yoga retreat in sunny Mexico with spare hours spent on the beach next to the humming jungle is enough to make me wonder if I am living in the right place.
The retreat is organically built and maintains a strict eco-policy and it has a development policy for local people to sponsor their education. Their aim is to achieve a balance of body, mind, and breath (or soul if you want to get all Cartesian about it) for their guests and everyone involved in the hotel. As well as yoga they specialize in water sports.
The area is popular with surfers and the retreat runs a ‘yoga and surf’ program. Interestingly, they run a traditional Temazcal ceremony with a local shaman who will take you through the ancient purification ritual in a sweat-lodge. The rooms and suites are naturally gorgeous with incredible views and elegant furnishings.
