About the Retreat
This Christmas, join fellow Hot Yogis from around the world for an unforgettable 7 days/ 6 nights Yoga holiday at the stunning Casa Om in Puerto Morelos on our 10th Retreat. Escape the cold and get hot in the heated yoga room, relax by the beach or pool, and celebrate the festive season in style!
Puerto Morelos is a laid back fishing village just 20 minutes south of busy Cancun. What visitors love about ‘Puerto’ are lower prices and a slower pace of life than its larger, busier neighbours like Cancun or Playa del Carmen. It’s the perfect spot for relaxation – a place to get away from it all and experience the simple Caribbean life, while still being centrally located to the surrounding attractions of the Riviera Maya. There are some fantastic restaurants and bars as well and the beach is just stunning.
We have planned a fantastic week with plenty of Hot Yoga classes, Posture Clinics, Intermediate classes, workshops and much more. A Christmas Celebration Menu, cocktail nights, and a half day excursion are all part of the week as well. The Retreat is also open to partners who don’t practice Yoga but who would like to enjoy a holiday and celebrate the festive season together. Please note, this is not a religious retreat. We just happen to do it during the Christmas season and as usual welcome everyone one, no matter what religion, ethical background or nationality.
Casa Om is situated right across of one of the most beautiful beaches at the Riviera Maya, with crystal clear waters. Just how you would imagine the Caribbean at its best. We have been running 8 retreats here and are every time excited to be coming back to this premier Hot Yoga Retreat Centre. Casa Om boasts a private swimming pool, rooftop deck with stunning ocean views (where we will be having our meals), a fully equipped and heated yoga room, ample space for relaxation and some turtles as well.
Most classes will be held in the heated Yoga studio right in the villa so no need to walk anywhere with the exception of a couple outside classes on the pier overlooking the ocean. An experience not to be missed.
Optional activities that can be organised directly once you are there as as follows: Onsite massages and healing therapies, snorkeling trips, diving (right outside our door is the 2nd largest reef in the world so there are plenty of opportunities to experience the amazing world in the water), sailing trips, Mexican cooking classes (this is a favourite of all previous guests), spa treatments, shopping trips to Cancun and Playa del Carmen, waterpark adventures, horse riding, Stand up paddle boarding and much more.

The rooms at Casa Om are comfortable and beautifully designed with air conditioning and fans. Drinking water and wifi are provided. Casa Om sleeps 26 and is across the street from the beach.
At Casa Om we run a full gourmet vegetarian kitchen. We offer extensive Mexican, Thai, New American, and Lebanese food options. Visitors love our fresh juices and superfood smoothies. All dishes are prepared with a healthy yogic lifestyle in mind. We love to make gluten free and vegan meals as well.
We will include breakfast each morning and dinner 4 nights out of the 6 you are with us. The other nights we will venture out into town.
Our head chef, Eduardo, is a former restaurateur; he brings more than 10 years of professional cooking experience to Casa Om. He is passionate about food and his cooking classes are a favorite amongst our visitors. Those passionate about cuisine will find a like-minded soul.
We will pick you up from the airport and take you 20 minutes south to the beautiful town of Puerto Morelos on the white sandy beaches of the Mexican Riviera.
We are located at 9 mza 26 sm 02 avenue javier rojo gomez, Puerto Morelos, Quintana Roo, Mexico.
Optional Excursions (additional fee applies):
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.
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.
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.
