While tourists have long been flocking to popular Mexican travel destinations like Cancun and Acapulco, the Central Pacific region offers some of the most pristine coastlines and beautiful forested mountains in the country. The resort town of Puerto Vallarta and surrounding area is one of the absolute best tropical destinations for any yogi looking to take their practice (and adventurous side) to one of the most awe-inspiring natural playgrounds Mexico has to offer.
One lucky Yogi Surprise member will win a 6-night yoga retreat this January to relax, renew, and revive themselves at the Tailwind Jungle Lodge located north of Puerto Vallarta, near San Francisco in the state of Nayarit. Founded by an American family back in 2007, the lodge offers yogis a creative and peaceful nature-inspired environment with bungalows, palapas, and casitas designed to look like treehouses, surrounded by five acres of lush tropical jungle.
Enjoy two daily yoga classes under the palm trees as you listen to sounds of ocean waves in the background and the warm jungle breeze calms your spirit. Connect even closer to your body and the environment around you by treating yourself to a relaxing massage, a reflexology therapy session, a therapeutic mud spa, or even an appointment/workshop with holistic nutritionist “Jungle Girl” Tamara Jacobi right at the lodge!
In addition to practicing yoga right in the middle of a tropical jungle environment, you can explore this spectacular coastline even further by enjoying other activities like sea kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, hiking, surfing, deep sea fishing, zip-lining, horseback riding, sailing, and so much more. And with healthy, locally-sourced foods the lodge provides for you to feast on, you’ll be able to refuel and energize yourself so you can play and practice all day long.
You can expect to enjoy all of the following during this stunning retreat:
- Three daily meals including breakfast, lunch, and dinner
- Two daily 75-minute yoga sessions including a Sun Salutation/Hatha yoga class plus a Yin and Restorative class
- Transportation to and from Puerto Vallarta International Airport
- Stand up paddle boarding
- Optional activities (kayaking, hiking, holistic nutrition workshops, etc.)
Our retreat winner will join 500-hour yoga teacher, yoga therapist, and registered counsellor Nora Benian at the Tailwind Jungle Lodge March 3rd to March 9th, 2017 for a relaxing and renewing practice and stay at this gorgeous destination. Whether you’re looking to connect deeper with yourself or go on an incredible jungle adventure, this retreat is one you won’t want to miss out on!
