Soak up the tranquility of nature and delve into your yoga practice with Joan over the Memorial Day weekend at this award-winning 200-acre nature reserve located on a pristine private beach on the Pacific coast of Mexico. This luxury sustainable boutique hotel is just 30 minutes from the airport, yet feels incredibly private and boasts a turtle sanctuary, archeological site and permaculture farm.

Enjoy delicious and healthy meals made fresh from the retreat center’s organic garden by their friendly staff.

 

Days will begin with a two-hour practice followed by restful afternoons by the beach, massage, horseback riding or nearby excursions. Afternoon practices will be workshop-style, offering pranayama and meditation followed by restful evenings and a family style meal. All rooms have gorgeous ocean views, use traditional open-air construction to capture the ocean breeze and are decorated with local materials to the highest standards of artistic craftsmanship.

Testimonials

D. Kelley, Mexico 2016

Haramara is an amazing, magical spot. It is such a peaceful, powerful place. I loved everything from the cabanas to the yoga shalas to the very limited electricity. I can't wait to go back to this beautiful enclave.
