My Top Rated Mexico Yoga Retreat

yoga retreat Mexico,yoga mexico,yoga in mexico,mexico yoga retreats,yoga retreats mexico,yoga retreats in mexico,mexico yoga retreat

My number one spot goes to One Breath of Yoga in Puerto Morelos. If you don’t know where that is, it sits just between Cancun and Playa del Carmen and it’s a smaller more peaceful version of Playa. The ashram is located outside of the town in the jungle, and it’s stunning. I’ve not stayed there personally, but I have visited to do Plant Medicine and I know the yoga teachers who lead the retreats (they are wonderful).

In the Ashram, they practice Ashtanga and Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga. You will eat a vegan and raw food diet (all included), have access to weekly temazcals (Mayan sweat lodge), and as well as your daily yoga practice you can also choose to do a variety of Plant Medicines with a local shaman (who I also know personally and highly recommend). This is of course optional.

You can learn more about their 7 day yoga retreats here, or if you were thinking of doing your yoga teacher training in Mexico they also offer a YTT 200 in Ashtanga Vinyasa click to learn more here

Did You Get Your Travel Insurance Yet?

If you are planning a trip right now then you NEED to thing seriously about insurance. If 2020 taught us anything, it’s that you need to be prepared for anything!

Travel insurance has always been high on the list of things to get before you travel but now more than ever it should be at the top of your list! I’m pretty sure we have all had travel plans messed up because of COVID and not all insurers covered this. So you need to find an insurer that covers travel disruption due to COVID-19, World Nomads and Safety Wing are the ones to go for. World Nomads is great for incidents that happen prior to your trip, so if you get sick or are unable to travel due to travel restrictions some of their policies will cover that as cancellation cover. Safety Wing goes the extra mile and covers quarantine outside your home for up to 10 days, they also have a really handy map on their website showing requirements and restrictions for each country.

If you are doing shorter trips or a onger backpacking trip then WorldNomads is the best option. If you are a digital nomad or planning travel of at least 6 months then go for SafetyWing. Alternativly Travel Insurance Master is a great site to do a more general serch for vacation insurance. Just make sure whichever insurance plan you go with will cover you for COVID.

Private Yoga Retreat In Mexico

My dear friend Maria offers personalized and private retreats on the beautiful Island of Cozumel through her Mexico yoga retreat company Quiet Transformation. She also offers some small (COVID-friendly) group retreats throughout the year. What I love about the retreats that Maria offers is that they can be completely catered to you and your needs. Want to combine your yoga retreat with ScubaDiving one of the largest reefs in the world, you got it! Or maybe you want to really pamper yourself and have more of a spa retreat with massages and facials included, Maria can organize that for you.

Maria uses her deep knowledge in yoga, meditation, and radical self-care to help you to jumpstart your personal transformation and hold your hand along the way. It’s also worth mentioning that Maria is also a specialist in working with chronic pain (especially migraines, back pain, and more), many of her retreats actually focus on helping people to relieve these problems.

For more information about joining one of Maria’s upcoming retreats, or to organize a personal yoga retreat, complete the form below and Maria will be in touch with you very soon.

Tulum Mexico Yoga Retreats

There is no shortage of Tulum Mexico yoga retreats, seriously! Just take a wander around the beach road and you will see an advert for yoga classes and retreats every few meters! Tulum and yoga go hand in hand. But be warned, because Tulum is such a well-known name as a beach yoga retreat venue you have to be careful to not overpay. Accommodation here can vary greatly from a tent on the beach to luxury 5* resorts, so be sure to look carefully before booking anything.

Each of the Tulum yoga retreats I’ve picked has great reviews and are good value for money as most of them as flexible retreats, so you can arrive any day of the week and in between yoga Tulum classes you are free to explore the local area. You can read all my Tulum posts here for extra inspiration.

Beach Yoga Vacations Mexico

Do you want to spend your practicing yoga on the beach in Mexico? Then one of these beach yoga retreats is for you. Puerto Escondido is one of the top surf and yoga destinations in Mexico, forget Tulum, here you will find a much more authentic (and budget-friendly) experience, plus unlike the Riviera Maya, there is great surf in this area. Another top beach destination in Mexico is Puerto Vallarta, also on the pacific coast on Mexico, but here you will find life a lot less rustic and much more in line with places like Playa del Carmen and Cancun.

Both places have a lot to offer, but if you want a little more luxury then choose Puerto Vallarta.
