Join us in this tropical haven on a secluded beach cove on Banderas Bay- Puerto Vallarta, Mexico for a week of yoga, fun and adventure!
This Retreat is Appropriate for All Levels!
We will stay at Xinalani Retreat (pronounced shee-nah-lah-nee), a beach retreat set amongst 10 acres of splendid unspoiled jungle on the southern shore of Banderas Bay in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Xinalani's quiet waters and pristine sand beach can be accessed solely by boat through Banderas Bay, a remarkable biodiverse hot spot in the Mexican Pacific Coast.
~Prices start at $1500 / Person~
Xinalani means “seeds” in pre-hispanic language. It is a one-of-a-kind Retreat Center bringing together beautiful eco-chic accommodations, inspiring open-air yoga studios, and delicious healthy food all set on a secluded pristine beach and a jungle of breathtaking natural beauty. It is place for reflection, renewal, fun and adventure!
All of Xinalani's accommodations are ocean front, spacious, palm-thatched cabins floating on stilts. All suites and rooms are designed with refined elegance and built and furnished by local artisans. You will enjoy the closeness of the natural elements and the stunning views of the Pacific Ocean and Puerto Vallata from your terrace.
All of Xinalani's meals are served in their beautiful, thatched-roof, open-air dining room with amazing views of Banderas Bay and Puerto Vallarta.
Set the Seeds for Joy, Freedom, Playfulness and Adventure while nurtured in a secluded and pristine pocket of nature... an environment equally suited for contemplation AND play.
Yoga classes will be held in open-air studios nested in the jungle with amazing ocean and jungle vistas. Yoga classes will be led by Deanna Evans. Deanna encourages her students to approach their practice with a deep awareness of their physical and subtle bodies, and to face challenges on and off the mat with ease and joy through the vehicle of the breath, a still mind, and an open heart.
Mornings will begin with a meditation and a heart-centered, alignment-based vinyasa (flow) class. The evenings will consist of a gentle, restorative class, pranayama (breath-work), and yoga nidra (deep guided relaxation).
Additionally, throughout the retreat, Deanna will interfold themes of passion, creativity, play and connection to enliven your innate ability to actualize your highest potential and your dreams!
What seeds will you plant for your New Year?
In addition to a week of yoga and nurturing your seeds, you will have the opportunity to choose from a vast array of fun and healthy activities, including:
Whale Watching- From mid-December to the end of March, the geographic location and conditions of Banderas Bay make it especially suitable for Humpback whales’ breeding and calving activities.
