HARAMARA RETREAT, SAYULITA MEXICO
Join Stacey Millner-Collins, ERYT-500, for this nourishing week-long retreat in Sayulita, Mexico at the lovely Haramara Yoga Retreat Center overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
ABOUT THE YOGA & PHILOSOPHY
After the last year and a half that we have all experienced, this yoga retreat is designed to re-nourish your body, mind, and soul. Classes will be geared to all levels and will include restorative sessions with pranayama & meditation practices as well. We will have 2 classes a day, in the morning before breakfast and late afternoon before dinner, except on your travel days. After the morning class, you will have free time to do what you wish...beach, spa, surf, whale watch, pool time, nap. The yoga spaces have all the props we will need for class (including bolsters & eye pillows).
Stacey will be centering the retreat on the teachings from the Vijnana Bhairava, and using the book “The Radiance Sutras” by Lorin Roche. This text offers 112 sweet meditation practices that we will explore together in asana, discussion, and with mediation practice itself.
ABOUT HARAMARA & SAYULITA
Haramara Retreat is located on the breathtaking coastal Riviera Nayarit near the fishing village and surfing town of Sayulita. Nestled above Pacific Ocean on 12 private acres of tropical jungle, it has a private and pristine beach. Haramara (“Mother Sea”) is an intimate seaside yoga resort offering two 360-degree view yoga pavilions, each with high thatched roofs and handcrafted hardwood floors, positioned to take advantage of the panoramic views of lush mountains and soothing ocean breezes while practicing.
The open-air rooms/cabanas have private outdoor bathrooms and mosquito netting to take advantage of the ocean sounds and breezes at night. All meals will be served at the resort dining palapa, which offers exceptional, creative, local cuisine that includes fresh and delicious (mostly organic) gourmet meals. The open-aired spa puts you back in touch with nature, pampering your body and spirit. The infinity pool is another outstanding feature overlooking the Pacific! The pool area and terrace boast a wonderful juice and snack bar, which also serves before dinner cocktails. Visit their website at: https://haramararetreat.com
Sayulita itself is a small, vibrant Mexican town known for its surfing (especially for beginners) and whale watching (Dec.-March). It is located about 50-minutes north of Puerto Vallarta. Sayulita has many open-air restaurants, beachside bars & cafes, and boutiques and is a quiet 25-minute walk from the retreat center (or a taxi ride for $5). The main beach has a super lively vibe and there is a sweet town square.
