About this trip

Hanuman Yoga Retreat is delighted to offer our 8th Annual New Year’s Yoga, Meditation, and Wellness Retreat in San Pancho, Mexico! Your 7 day tropical holiday retreat will be filled with many blessings— nature’s nurturing, fantastic food, and an engaging program led by highly experienced, heart-centered practitioners. Our carefully designed itinerary uniquely offers a wide variety of somatic and mindful modalities to experience many approaches and tools for well-being. Movement and meditation allows us to let go of stress and tension, increase body awareness, expression, and build a healthy relationship with ourselves. We'll also re-examine ways in which we can go from being 'stuck' in our patterns, ego and need for control, to greater trust in our truth and freedom. Stepping into this new space naturally opens up healing, creativity, and intuition— embracing 2021 with fresh energy, readiness, and purpose. 

About the Facilitators

Retreat Leader & Facilitator: Tammy Hayano
Originally from California, Tammy Hayano has been living and traveling worldwide for the past 15 years. Tammy took her love of travel, teaching background, and interest in transformational experiences to start Hanuman Yoga Retreat. Since its launch in 2013, Tammy has led retreats in Bali, Thailand, Mexico, Hawaii, Vietnam, and California. Tammy brings a gentle, calm, and reflective approach and aims to work where people are at, instead of where they "should" be.   Tammy offers several modalities for self-care, healing, and connection while creating a conscious community: Hatha Yoga, QiGong, JourneyDance™, Innerdance Energy Work, TRE®/tension-trauma release, Laughter Yoga, Craniosacral Therapy, and Family Constellations. Tammy's classes, workshops, and retreats consistently receive excellent reviews on TripAdvisor, BookYogaRetreats, and WeTravel.


Guest Teacher: Andrea Corrigan Rivera
​Born, raised, and introduced to Yoga in the SF Bay Area, California, Andrea began energy healing in 2017 and moved to "Pueblo Magico" the following year. It was in Sayulita, Mexico that she experienced a  rebirth of herself into a compassionate and authentic teacher, healer, and energetic guide who feels deeply connected to the community around her. Andrea's goal is to help students sense peace between their body, soul, and their environment. Tapping into a connection and compassion within ourselves, ultimately turns that recognition outward to the world around us, creating an existence with reduced suffering for all. Andrea's work is her personal homage to the divine. She is RYT200 Certified from Passion Yoga School and studied the Soul methods under Adi Shakti & Sharon Brenes. She has taught Power Vinyasa Flow, Restorative Yoga, and Free Community Classes at Oro Leggings Studio.  Andrea currently offers public classes and ceremonies at Hotel Selina Sayulita, and is booking private clients for Winter 2020.  Follow Andrea on IG and her website.

Wow, where to begin? I joined the week-long new year's retreat in Mexico without doing any research and thought I was heading into a "yoga" retreat that would be mostly about fitness. I was WRONG. And what I experienced was EVEN BETTER! Indescribably so. I am already ready to book it again for new year's next year. This was truly a transformative experience in totally unexpected ways. Tammy is a very special person, and her co-facilitator for this retreat, Dave, was as well. The space these two created for us was one of safety and joy! They led us through Hatha yoga and many other types of yoga and different modalities that I had never heard of or tried, all to incredible results. Leaving the retreat I felt an incredible amount of joy and release and ready to take on an amazing year. (Can't say I've ever felt that way after waking up hungover from a new year's eve spent out at the bars...) The group at the retreat was also great -- I know that I will see people that I met here again. Wonderful community and friends that could only be created in an atmosphere like this -- full of vulnerability, joy, pain, openness and love. I can't recommend enough!!!
The retreat exceeded my expectations in every way. The accommodations were floating on the lake, the beds were comfy, the lake was so clean and refreshing and the food was so deliscious I went back for seconds plenty of times. I cannot say enough good things about Tammy. She is an amazing facilitator in how she can teach new intricate skills to so many people at once and does it with humour and keeps you engaged the whole time. I love that she has a sharing circle after the class to discuss and go deeper into what we learnt or felt. I have never been so vulnerable and felt so safe at the same time. Saffia and Bard the co facilitators were both great value and my husband and I did one on one trike and himikayan bowls with them. This retreat was my best experience in Asia and one of the best experiences of my life.

This was possibly the best New Years I’ve ever had! Tammy and Fernando are the most wonderful, caring, and considerate facilitators you could possibly ask for. This retreat was a totally transformative experience and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for the time and space to reconnect with themselves in a beautiful and supportive setting. My week on this retreat was an absolute dream and if you’re on the fence about booking it - just do it! Trust me. Thank you Tammy and Fernando!! Xo
This week was worth a lot more than we paid! We were very fortunate to spend a week in the company of a wonderful group, connecting and learning from both Tammy and Fernando. They scheduled a week of wellbeing and growth that I hope I have the opportunity to repeat in the near future.
Tammy was an excellent yoga teacher / host! Her attention to detail and warm, welcoming attitude made participants of all levels feel comfortable and at ease. The hotel accommodations were lovely and the ocean views from the yoga palapas were an excellent backdrop for our yoga and meditation sessions. The hotel staff was accommodating to all dietary requests (gluten free, vegan, dairy free, you name it) and all meals were prepared for us and were super healthy / delicious. If you're looking for a relaxed atmosphere to deepen your practice, I highly recommend Tammy and her co-facilitator Fernando. This was the 2nd time I've participated in one of Tammy's retreats. She exceeded all of my expectations, per usual!
