From its creation Retiro Maya was conceived as a yoga, meditation & spiritual and wellness center, ideally situated to enable yoga and spiritual teachers to conduct retreats in an exquisite location. The center provides a peaceful and quiet environment to refresh and recharge in communion with nature, as well as vegetarian meals, therapeutic massages, holistic treatments and personalized attention from Luu, the owner. In recent years we have been fortunate to have some of the finest teachers lead yoga & spiritual workshops at our Center. These teachers have been delighted to provide intensive yoga and spiritual teachings to their pupils in an uplifting environment while experiencing the wonders of nearby Mayan sites and all that the area has to offer spiritually, culturally and scenically.
~Yoga, Meditation & Workshop Facilities ~ The Center features a beautiful yoga & meditation shala surrounded by lush tropical jungle and crowned by a beautiful thatched palapa roof. The shala is fully open, allowing ocean breeze and the soothing sound of waves to fill the space. The shala has an additional open air lounge next to it, also surrounded by jungle, which features a temazcal (wooden structure) and a bonfire. This space is perfect for ceremonies, drum circles, star gazing and any dynamic contemplated in retreats.
~Nourishing Cuisine~ The Center has evolved throughout time and experience, and so has our menu. We use natural & fresh ingredients to offer an array of nutritionally sound choices at every meal. Whole grains, fresh vegetables, and legumes form the backbone of the menus. Our vegetarian plan is made up of three nutritious energizing meals served buffet-style in a beautiful sand floor palapa overlooking the ocean. Tropical fruits, fresh salad fixings, and a selection of delicious salad dressings are always available. Special menus including seafood, poultry and additional arrangements are also available upon request.
