Borealis Yoga Adventure in Puerto Morelos

Feb 3rd - 9th, 2019

About the Retreat

Join Emilie and Karen for a week of yoga and adventure in the beautiful Mayan Riviera of Mexico. Rejuvenate and unwind from winter by spending 7 days and 6 nights in paradise. Wake up to sunrise meditations on the beach and deepen your practice with class twice daily.

Just steps from a pristine beach, enjoy all of the amenities of an upscale hotel but in our own private Casa. Rejuvenate in the ocean, lounge by the pool, enjoy delicious and nutritious vegetarian meals on the rooftop, explore a quaint town on the Mayan Riviera. Relax, laugh and recharge… take this time for you to deepen your practice, reconnect, realign and inspire yourself to take your practice and life to another level.

In addition to some serious hang-out time at the Casa, we’ll venture out to the stunning Mayan temple ruins of Tulum. Then discover the natural beauty of swimming in a cenote (pronounced say-no-tay). Cenotes are freshwater swimming holes made of natural carved rock formations located just inland from the ocean. We’ll also experience a traditional Mayan temazcal (pronounced tay-mas-kal), a super-cleansing ritual reminiscent of a sweat lodge.

No yoga or meditation experience necessary. All levels welcome.

Activites

Optional Excursions (additional fee applies):

Cenotes
The Mexican Riviera is flush with these beautiful underground pools and a trip here isn’t complete without a dip in these refreshing waters. There are multiple cenotes to visit that are much less crowded than those in the Tulum area and only about 30min away by car. Find tranquility below ground or liven you experience with a cenote/zip line combination. Both options are available and booking at least a day in advance is recommended.

Snorkeling & Snuba
The biodiversity on the protect reef in the Mexican Riviera is stunning. Take off for an afternoon when the sun lights up the corals, tropical fish and sponges and search for turtles or reef sharks. Snorkelers can float above it all while scuba divers (no certification needed) can swim down into the tropical traffic. Either option will highlight why this area is protected and turned into a National Marine Park. Yogis can walk to the beach and take a 5 minute stroll to reach the operator. This natural oasis is literally steps from our retreat center.

Scuba
If you’re a diver there’s twice the opportunity here, you can dive in the coral reefs or, for something a little different, take a cavern or cenote dive. Seasonally the more adventurous (crazy?) yogis can also try a bull shark dive…eek! Tons of diving options await the intrepid.

Akumal Sea Turtle Snorkel
The warm Caribbean waters off of the Mexican Riviera boast sea turtle populations year-round. You can outfit with a dive shop to snorkel with these lovelies or head out with your own gear and see if you get lucky.

Coba Ruins
The Mayan ruins at Coba is one of the few sites in the Yucatan that is still relatively unrestored. Many of these ancient buildings are the same as when they were rediscovered in 1890. The beautiful location is less hectic and touristy than other Mayan sites and is certainly worth the day trip.

Playa Del Carmen Take a shopping trip, have a great meal, or just enjoy people watching on a trip to Playa del Carmen. This is a fun tourist spot where you can shop for anything from cheap souvenirs to boutique items.
