Shakthi Ganeshan has been teaching yoga and meditation for 20 years, and offers you a program of yoga in the mornings, delicious food, the setting of the artistic and irrestistible "Pueblo Magico" as it is known throughout Mexico. Shakthi's yoga retreats provide a safe container to practice, with inspiration, and supportive guidance. The yoga will be offered at a moderate level, so many levels can practice at once. We will practice yoga with both Hatha and Vinyasa elements, allowing for care and alignment, as well as edge and challenge.

Seasonal tropical fruits abound. in Guanojuato, Mexico (the state which San Miguel is in.)


New Year intention setting, and Chakra healing will be healing themes for the retreat with ritual and group guided meditation, journaling and partner exercises.


Our inspired, one-of-a-kind Retreat campus is graced with gardens and pools amongst private villas on a sanctuary surrounded by the walkable city. You can walk everywhere. Explore and ground in the dense jungle-like gardens--- viewing and communing with cacti, flowers, and trees, listening to the tropical birds. Take a short walk to the town center, and taste the mole, hear the mariache bands, and sense the art of a vibrant culture. There is also shopping for the most carefully crafted art... so beautiful! Feel yourself again, as you take in the views at our retreat center setting- which is a rejuvenation vortex, a peaceful gathering place to relax and soak up the healing beauty. We will support each participant will have the chance to reconnect what they value most. Prepare for wonderful city explorations, swimming in Mayan baths, and breathtaking views. Evenings will include restorative yoga, and community building.


We are planning a foray to the local hot springs, and local travel adventures.

Reviews

What a nourishing, reflective, and inspiring retreat. I am absolutely atonished how much wellness was created on this time we shared together. We had spaciousness for meditation, yoga, ceremony, hiking, swimming/cold plunges, wisdom shared with nourishing food prepared for us each day. I'm so grateful for the beautiful space and teachings from Shakthi.

It was a magical weekend! Such an incredible space, community and food. I felt as if I was able to really expand my practice of meditation because Shakthi and Whitney (and definitely Alex &amp; Kayla as well!) were able to create such a safe and welcoming space. That weekend served as a turning point in my pregnancy, bringing me peace and calm and acceptance. I will look back on it whenever I need inner strength. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
