About this trip

Join Body Flows and yoga teacher Sally Mitchell us at the luxury yet environmentally-conscious yoga and beachfront resort, Playa Viva in Mexico. Step out of your cabana right onto the beach, just footsteps from the ocean. The perfect place to relax, rejuvenate, and restore is awaiting you in sunny Mexico!


The yoga classes will be theme-based, creative and balanced, for a safe, strong yet supportive practice, leaving you feeling relaxed whilst energized. Morning classes will be vinyasa flow for all levels, and afternoon/evening classes will be yin/restorative with yoga nidra or guided meditations. Optional workshops will be offered during the retreat (eight limbs of yoga and yoga in daily life, natural and efficient walking and running form, essential oils and chakra balancing).


All levels are welcome and encouraged. We provide options and modifications so everyone feels included and comfortable, and the yoga is available, challenging and transforming for all.

We look forward to sharing this journey of yoga, wellness and nature with you!


"Sally's Yoga retreats are truly a "reset" experience for us Yoginis who live very busy, stressful and active lives. Sally creates a very inspirational atmosphere, both physically with the locations she chooses AND supportive of any level of Yoga practice; spiritually, and offers a lovely sense of needed community and genuine guidance and caring. She is one of a kind." - Kathy, Sonoma Retreat
