Escape to the exotic beachfront resort, Maya Tulum Mexico, a premiere yoga and wellness destination on the Caribbean for our 5-night yoga and wellness retreat, with Sally Mitchell from Body Flows Yoga Retreats.
Just 1.5 hours drive south of Cancun and 15 mins drive south of the Mayan ruins at Tulum, this magical and mystical hidden gem is bordered by the ocean on one side and the jungle on the other. Step out of your cabana right onto the beach, just footsteps from the ocean! This is the perfect place to destress, rejuvenate and connect mind, body, soul.
As well as retreating from your daily life, you will have the opportunity to deepen your yoga practice with 2 yoga classes daily, including vinyasa flow for all levels and yin/restorative yoga, healing and rejuvenating for the body, mind and soul. Two optional workshops will be held during the retreat (learning natural, efficient and injury free ChiRunning and ChiWalking, and taking yoga off the mat into your daily life, including some yoga philosophy and an overview and discussion about the eight limbs of yoga). All yoga classes and workshops are optional although highly encouraged.
Massages and spa treatments are available onsite at Maya Tulum, and optional activities and excursions may be arranged on arrival (such as snorkeling, stand-up paddle board, biking, hiking, and visits to beautiful lagoons, caverns and popular Mayan ruin sites at Tulum). Read more about Maya Tulum's excursions.
The yoga classes will be a blend of Vinyasa Flow and Hatha, linking movement with the breath, moving your body through both yin and yang postures. The classes will be theme-based, creative and balanced and will incorporate pranayama (breathing), strengthening, stretching, detoxing, energizing, and meditation. You will experience a safe and nurturing practice, leaving you feeling relaxed yet energized.
All levels are welcome and encouraged at our Maya Tulum Mexico Retreat! We look forward to sharing this journey and vacation with you at this stunning and tropical beachfront resort!
