Join me this Halloween for my Temazcal Ceremony & Yoga Retreat. Through daily asana, pranayama, meditation, satya circles and the healings of a Temazcal Ceremony we will honor Dia De Los Muertos by taking this time to shed dead energy from our bodies and spirit to make room for the new. For cleansing and spiritual rejuvenation we will participate in a Temazcal ceremony, an unforgettable and beautiful sweat lodge experience used traditionally by pre- Hispanic indigenous peoples of Mexico. Temazcal has been known to be very therapeutic for purifying the mind, body and soul and bring about spiritual awakening and healing.
Outside of the retreat schedule, there will be plenty to do in Yelapa. Go into town to witness the beautiful artwork and Day of the Dead celebrations, explore the quaint alleyways of the pueblo, hike to the waterfalls, lay out on the gorgeous white sand beaches sipping on fresh coconuts, grab a kayak and paddle the bay or swim around with a snorkel, book a massage or reiki session, go hang gliding or simply grab a book plop in your hammock and just relax. To ensure a pure and cleansing retreat experience we don’t allow loud music or alcohol at the property.
This retreat is about shedding off dead energy to make room for new energy. Through daily asana, meditation and Satya circles will dive into self exploration of mind, body and spirit. The highlight of our experience will be the Temazcal Cereony led by a local shaman. Temazcal comes from the Nahuatl language of Central Mexico and translates as “house of heat.” Since ancient times, a temazcal ceremony is considered to be a healing and purification ceremony that cleanses the mind, body, and spirit and brings about spiritual awakening.

Our journey begins!
Fly into Puerto Vallarta International Airport. Grab a taxi and head to “Los Muertos” pier (located in Old PV or La Zona Romantica) to take a water taxi to Yelapa. As you approach the pier keep an eye out for 'Water Taxi' signs where you can purchase your ticket. Tickets are around $15-20 round trip (these prices are subject to change). If you arrive in between stops and you’ve got some time to kill, check out the cool cafe's and restaurants until the next boat comes. Your vacation starts now :)
Assuming you catch a water taxi when you arrive at the pier, the trip from the airport to Yelapa will take around 1.5-2 hours and is a lovely experience. Keep an eye out for whales and dolphins on your water taxi ride over! Our first meal together is Dinner so feel free to eat lunch in town or bring a snack with you.
Check in anytime after 2pm. Our opening ceremony will begin at 5pm! If you arrive early take a dip in the ocean, stroll along the quaint alley ways, explore the meditation gardens or simply relax in your hammock!
