Todos Santos, Mexico Yoga Adventure

fullsizeoutput_d7ed.jpg

Join Chicago-based  yoga instructors, Jenny Guzon-Bae and Wade Gotwals, for 7 days and 6 nights of yoga, meditation, relaxation, sun, sea, sand, blue skies, and the opportunity to take your yoga practice even deeper. Our destination is gorgeous Prana Del Mar, in the cool little surf village of Todos Santos, Mexico.

Prana Del Mar’s primary focus is on creating an environment where people have the opportunity to join with others to deepen their yoga practices, create space and stillness in their minds and in their lives, and participate authentically in their own self-discovery. All 16 of their spacious, luxurious guest rooms and suites—with their clean lines and understated elegance—all face the ocean as you drift off each night to the sound of crashing waves as they break on the beach.

Their retreat center features two lovely and unique yoga studios tailored to fit the changing rhythms of our yoga practice. The larger Sun studio features expansive windows that look out west to the mighty Pacific and east to the majestic Sierra de la Laguna mountains. The thatched palapa roof overhead is a marvel of Mexican craftsmanship. The more intimate Moon studio is most often used for slower, more internal practices and restorative classes. It features low windows that look out upon a hidden garden, a multitude of skylights for natural light, and an array of Chinese lanterns modeled after the famous Zen garden at Ryoanji for evening illumination.

Our days will commence with a morning yoga practice to prepare for whatever adventures might lie ahead. In addition to the morning classes, there will be afternoon classes to help round out our day. These practices will be geared to helping find new openness in the body and expand the connection with each other and within ourselves.

There will be ample time each day to explore as well as informal workshop opportunities and dharma talks with your yoga teachers. Additionally, the following excursion options will be available:

  • Surfing

  • Whale Watching

  • Horseback Riding

  • Hiking

  • Kayaking/Snorkeling

  • Local Town Visits – Todos Santos, San Jose del Cabo & Cabo San Lucas

  • Cooking Lessons

  • Massage, Aromatherapy Treatments, Body Wraps, Facials & Scrubs in the in-house Spa

 

Excursions, spa treatments and airfare are not included in the cost of the retreat.
