YOGA RETREAT IN MEXICO
The BIG EXHALE Yoga Retreat
BECAUSE WE ALL NEED A LITTLE SOMETHING TO LOOK FORWARD TO…
We are thrilled to invite you to this retreat on the Mexican Pacific! It goes without saying that it has been quite an interesting year, and I am ready to usher in a new sense of well-being for 2021. That is precisely why I am hosting this mindful retreat in my home of Puerto Vallarta…well, kind of Puerto Vallarta! This retreat will be held on one of the areas most beloved secluded beaches, Quimixto.
Quimixto is a small beachside village just 45min. south of Puerto Vallarta. The fun part? You must arrive by water taxi! Away from the town and the crowds, this is the perfect place to disconnect, breathe in the fresh ocean air, and enjoy some much needed R&R focused on wellbeing, community, and orienting yourself toward JOY.
COVID-19 RESPONSE :
All retreats will be maximum 10 guests. A negative COVID-19 test result within 48 hours of arrival must be presented to join. Social distancing measures have been taken onsite at the retreat venue to ensure that everyone is safe and protected. Staff members wear masks and keep areas clean and sanitized on a regular basis so you are free to relax and breathe in the fresh jungle air with plenty of open, outdoor space for everyone to relax, socialize, and enjoy nature. Yoga classes in the open-air studio will be set up so distancing is possible. Mats and props are sanitized between classes. Due to the nature of the situation we are only offering private accommodations if you are coming on your own. If you’d like to share a space please plan to bring your roommate/s with you on retreat. There are options for private, shared doubles, triples and quads available.
While we have recently moved to the ‘Yellow Light’ with almost everything in the state operating at full capacity, Mexico still takes precautions and requires the use of masks, anti-virus/bacterial gel, temperature checks and bleach walk-through upon entering into any store or venue so please make sure you have your mask with you when you arrive and even a back up in case you leave yours on the beach or by your hammock! Our shuttles and airport transfer vans all take extra precautions to ensure sanitation as mandated by the state. Excursions are also spaced so distancing is possible on boats and beyond. Mexico is here to welcome you with open arms for a much needed escape from it all in a time like no other. We await your arrival with open arms and are so thrilled to have you along for some much needed social interaction and yoga.
A secluded Pacific coast beach get-away to refresh and reignite the soul!
We are thrilled to invite you to this retreat on the Mexican Pacific! It goes without saying that it has been quite an interesting year, and I am ready to usher in a new sense of well-being for 2021. That is precisely why we are offering this mindful retreat in the home of our yoga teacher, Willis, in Puerto Vallarta…well, kind of Puerto Vallarta! This retreat will be held on one of the areas most beloved secluded beaches, Quimixto.
Quimixto is a small beachside village just 45min. south of Puerto Vallarta. The fun part? You must arrive by water taxi! Away from the town and the crowds, this is the perfect place to disconnect, breathe in the fresh ocean air, and enjoy some much needed R&R focused on wellbeing, community, and
orienting yourself toward JOY.
Aside from providing an experience that is magical and expansive, our other main priority is to offer an experience that is mindful of the current state of the world. Therefore, we would like to mention these aspects of the retreat that will ensure everyone is as safe as possible:
—This retreat is a small group retreat. No more than 10 guests will be in attendance.
—Rooms will either be shared by 2 people that already know each other or booked as a private, individual accommodation.
—All common areas are open air. I mean, it is right on the beach! The yoga studio is an open air palapa and the dining area is a huge palapa overlooking the grounds and the playa! This place offers up ample space to socially distance.
—Attendees are encouraged to bring their own mat, 2 blankets, 2 blocks, and a strap. The property also has properly sanitized mats if you don’t mind using those. If you don’t want to haul your own props down, you can add $50usd to your package and we will get that together for you!
—All attendees agree to be mindful and respectful of the boundaries of their fellow yogi.
YOGA RETREAT IN Quimixto includes
—6 nights stay right on the beach in a breezy boutique hotel. Every room has its own bathroom.
—1-2 practices per day in the open-air palapa studio (vinyasa, hatha, katonah, yin, restorative, meditation, pranayama).

—Spa Credit good for one treatment at venue from this menu – refresh page if photo won’t load.
