Escape the hustle! Join co-retreat leaders Jody Hahn and Laura Cohen to rejuvenate for five days of yoga, sand and sun. Travel with us to the beautiful, private one-mile beachfront retreat center and turtle sanctuary, Playa Viva, on Mexico’s Pacific Coast.
There will be two yoga classes per day on the outdoor yoga platform overlooking the ocean; a morning vigorous vinyasa led by Jody, and an evening slow flow/restorative led by Laura. We will also offer two workshops during the course of our stay.
