Luxuriate and rejuvenate to the sound of the Pacific Ocean at this tropical destination yoga retreat. Relaxation, pristine beaches, meditation, and authentic cuisine await in serene Litibú, Nayarit, Mexico. This retreat is designed for those of us who are craving a dive deep into a slower rhythm of life; sharing movement, breath, energy, laughter, food, and experiences rich in elemental beauty. 

LODGING

Six days, five nights at our magnificent and spacious hacienda-style retreat house nestled in the palm trees. With its expansive terraces surrounded by tropical flora, you'll enjoy the private atmosphere and get in touch with the slow pace of nature. Breathtaking sunsets and the sounds of the ocean will envelope you in peace and relaxation. The house is brilliantly and thoughtfully designed to give space, vistas, and ease to all who visit. Just a few steps from the house is Playa Litibú, a beautiful wide, sandy beach with crystal clear water. Enjoy moonlit walks on the beach, and if luck is on your side, you’ll find a turtle laying her eggs in the sand.
