About this trip

Join Whole-Hearted Yoga & Travel for Experience Puerto Vallarta 3: A Luxury Adventure Trip!

More Than a Vacation...Everything is planned for your perfect getaway from the moment you step out of the Puerto Vallarta airport; luxury accommodations, excursions, most of your meals, a massage, and Christ-Centered yoga are included with plenty of time to rest and reflect. 

My personal mission is to encourage women to give themselves permission to do something life-giving that feeds their souls. This is not just an escape. My goal is for everyone to return home restored, inspired, and refreshed. 


"The trip was better than I anticipated. I was nervous about not knowing anyone, going to a city that I have never visited, and the general feeling of 'not being in control." ... it was very empowering to have so much fun, and I loved getting to explore the food places from a local’s perspective. This was an awesome way to have that experience." - Renee F.

"It was really wonderful. I came to spend some time relaxing, getting away and spending time with God. I felt like I was able to do this and spend time getting to know the other ladies." - Sarah D.

"Loved the trip! I rate it a 10. Loved the hotel & service!! The food was great & liked the yoga even though I don’t do it regularly! Liked bike and food tour!! Puerta Vallarta is magical!! & very safe! Thanks for great trip." - Becky J. 

"What a blessing this has been! You made this special for each of us, and I have loved getting to know you and all of the ladies." - Shauna G.

"The trip was even better than I expected. My favorite part was getting to connect with everyone and still having the quiet time to focus on Jesus. Everything was well thought out and the yoga was fabulous." - Christina B.


We are returning to the beautiful, intimate setting of the Hacienda San Angel boutique hotel in 2024. Perched on a hilltop above the renowned Guadalupe Church in the center of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, Hacienda San Angel is a truly special place offering five-star service and amazing food. Overlooking the city and the ocean, it is one of the world’s most elegant and unique boutique luxury hotels you will ever visit.  Check out this short video of the HSA grounds:   Welcome to Hacienda San Angel! - YouTube  

All you have to do is grab your spot, find your passport, pack your bags and book your flight. What are you waiting for?

See you in Mexico!

San Gabriel’s large bathroom has both a claw foot bathtub and an open shower and boasts a painting done on tin representing the Virgin and Child from 1800. The room is adorned with a 19th-century niche that was salvaged from a church in Vietnam at the end of the Vietnam War when all of the churches were being looted.

After 16 years of practicing yoga, I decided to share my passion for yoga & traveling to Mexico with others. Whole-Hearted yoga is a Christian yoga company that teaches the physical and mental benefits of yoga. We utilize scripture to create a spiritual aspect and Biblical world view in the practices. My purpose is to challenge, restore & empower women through faith-based yoga classes, workshops, and retreats.


It was a wonderful trip. The accommodations were amazing and the staff went above and beyond! I loved the bike street vendors tour, I didn’t enjoy the party boat excursion, but the people were very kind and I thought the food was good. Overall, it was a fun experience!

Lori makes each trip special and unique. Our recent trip to PV was amazing. The hotel is beautiful and the service there is the best ever! The food at the hotel and around town is so delicious. The activities were super fun and just the right amount of active time. On my first trip with Lori, I didn’t know anyone and ended making friends for life. And finally, the yoga is so so good. Lori has the best meditations. You will be refreshed and relaxed! I can say enough good things - JUST GO!
