EMBODY MEXICO 2017 ~ yoga~water~wellness - NOVEMBER 17-24 (FULL)
Enjoy the sensation of your toes in warm sand, the thundering sound of pounding surf and the sweet scent of jacaranda while relaxing your body & mind on the tranquil shores of Mexico's south-western coast during our 7 day retreat into wellness. We will begin our days with the sun & the hummingbirds, finding length in our bodies & joy in our hearts from the beachside yoga shala on the grounds of our boutique hotel. Ai Chi classes & relaxation time can be enjoyed in the infinity pool, and time in the hammocks, qiyoga on the lawn, strolls on the beach & breathtaking sunsets will help spread the joy.
Troncones, our host town, is an authentic & quiet Mexican village that features a few charming shops, cafes, and a host of live music & dancing several nights a week. Together with yoga, massage and spa activities, this retreat is a wonderful blend of lively & tranquil. The vibe is chill, the people friendly, and the location beautiful. Come join us!
