Our retreats will begin in the mornings with a Pranyama and Meditation session, followed by a yoga class. Then we will enjoy a delicious organic brunch. The afternoons we will have the chance to dig deeper in your yoga practice with our Yoga Workshops. There will also be free afternoons to experience the many exciting Mayan adventures in the area, from beach bathing to cave diving and from turtle watching to Ancient Mayan temples. Generally, our evenings are filled with a scrumptious organic dinner and followed by a chance to chill, or maybe in a Yin class. There are other evenings free to try the local cuisine in the area.
