5 day Svabhava yoga retreat with sounds of the ocean and live music of the healing African Harp to guide you through your yoga practice, meditation and Kirtan on private ocean front estate in biosphere reserve SIAN KA'AN UNESCO World Heritage Site with sunrise or sunset kayak excursion on the coast of TULUM MEXICO
This retreat is dedicated to bring to life all of the virtues of our existence. The location visually captures the breath of any visitor. In this fully-staffed, private oceanfront estate, located in the pristine Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve, enjoy daily yoga practice moving to the sounds of the harp. Savor the breathtaking sunrises over the Caribbean, and experience gourmet meals prepared by our retreat chef, underneath the palapa in the open air dining room.
You will revitalize your mind, body, and spirit in this luxurious oasis deep in the Mayan jungle, 45 minutes south of Tulum.
Sian Ka'an is the largest protected nature preserve in Mexico's Maya Riviera, world renown for its unique wetlands and unparalleled biodiversity. The name Sian Ka'an means "where the sky is born" in Maya. The Mesoamerican Reef—the world's second largest—is just a short swim from the beachfront directly outside your doorstep. The refreshing ocean breezes keep you comfortable throughout the day.
From the villa's roof-deck, witness gorgeous sunsets over the vast Sian Ka'an jungle
as birds glide above the treetops. Then rekindle your sense of wonder as you gaze upon the expansive night sky, just as the Mayans did from this very spot a millennia ago.
Flow through creative sequencing taking time to synchronize the Ujjayi breath with the movements releasing stagnation and opening fresh, energetic pathways in the body. Experience pulsation vinyasas, micro-movements, and undulations, a moving meditation.
