Yoga Retreat in Puerto Morelos, Mexico
YOGA: There will be two yoga classes held daily in the spacious screened yoga room surrounded by palm trees and flowers. Classes are alignment-based. Morning classes are more active and challenging. Afternoon classes will include forward bends, twists, restoratives, pranayama, and meditation. The yoga vacation is geared to students with at least six months of yoga experience. Props are provided.
ACTIVITIES: Although there is plenty of time between yoga classes to rest and relax by the pool, in the hammock palapa, or on the quiet white sand beach, many activities are also available. The reef at Puerto Morelos is spectacular and easily accessible. Snorkeling is fabulous, either from the shore or by boat. Guests in previous years have enjoyed touring the Mayan ruins in Tulum and Coba, and exploring Xcaret Ecological Park. On one day mid-week, only one early morning yoga class will be held to accommodate those who wish to go on longer excursions.
