WHERE WE STAY:

5 STAR ECO HOTELS OF THE WORLD

Let us not forget Prana del Mar has exemplary eco credentials. The resort solar panels as its sole source of power and all waste water is treated on site and then used to irrigate the garden, itself organic. And if you purchase carbon offsets for your flight the resort will credit you that amount towards a spa treatment, surf lesson or excursion. Prana del Mar has been awarded 5 stars by Eco Hotels of The World.

YOUR ACCOMMODATIONS

Beyond the guest accommodations, the center features a central community building with full restaurant, swimming pool, hot tub, spa treatment rooms, lounges, a rooftop deck, and a meditation room. They offer a variety of spa services – including massage, body wraps and scrubs, and more. There is also a large, airy 1,850 square foot yoga studio that overlooks the ocean, five acres of desert gardens, a stone labyrinth for walking introspection, and a nearly-empty, golden-sand beach where you can walk for miles at the front of the property.

All of the above remain in harmony with the natural environment due to Prana del Mar’s commitment to environmental stewardship. Not only is all electricity solar-powered, the vegetable and herb garden is organic, the pool is solar-heated, wastewater is treated on site and reused for the xeriscaped gardens, sheets and bath towels are all organic, and more.

ABOUT THE CUISINE:

Combine all of this with delicious cuisine featuring an international menu that incorporates contemporary and traditional Mexican influences and a loving staff, and you have an inviting place to deepen your yoga practice where you can relax, refresh, and rejuvenate. Daily breakfast, lunch and dinner will be included in your package, with snacks available throughout the day. Most meals will be vegetarian, with fresh fish and seafood served occasionally throughout the week.

ABOUT THE FACILITIES

Check out 3 studios, pool, sauna, hot tub, private 19 acres of walking beach and more!

    Tell me more details, I live in Venezuela. I have been readind your posts in MindBodyGreen, and since then, I have been following you with love, admiration for the work you are doing for the planet and great appreciation!
    I love yoga, and even if surfing is not for me, I love watching them…I was married for 10 years a surfist…!

  2. Hi

    My partner and I are interested in this retreat. We are looking to learn some challenging postures to bring back to Australia. What type of yoga do you teach and would you say this retreat is for beginners, intermediate or yoga teachers? Are any of your studios at the retreat heated as we are Hot Yoga teachers. Can you confirm the weather degrees of Cabo during this period?

    We are both teachers looking to learn new postures however relax at the same time 🙂

    • Dear Suzanna,
      My intention is that every retreat include new postures as a means of inspiring everyone to keep evolving their practice as well as familiar poses experienced more deeply. The depth might occur as a result of cuing or new techniques being applied. Even a pose such as Pigeon needs to be updated for us as practitioners. Certainly no one ever walks away from my classes, workshops or retreats feeling under challenged physically or mentally.

      This retreat has regular practioners, dedicated students and teachers of yoga. I would say it is intermediate.

      The two studios: Moon and Sun Studios are naturally heated. Not 110 degrees you might be used to. I also teach heated vinyasa. We do all we can to heat up through tapas instead of just external heat. Our Xinalani retreat March 30, 2014 has 2 studios and one is “heated” and is the hottest yoga studio at a retreat center we are aware of.

      While on retreat we will include practice of:
      Tolasana (scales pose)
      Astavakrasana (8-bends pose)
      Eka pada bhujasna (elephant trunk, one leg up on outside of shoulder, one extended forward)
      Dwi hasta bhjasana (same as above but with both legs extended forward)
      Bhujapidasana (shoulder pressure pose, similar to above, but with both legs on outside of shoulders)
      Pinca mayurasana (elbow balance, forearm stand)
      Adho Mukha Vrksasana (downward facing tree, AKA full arm balance, AKA hand stand)
      Vasisthasana (side plank)
      Bakasana (crow or crane pose)
      Parsva Bakasana (side crow or crane)
      Tittibhasana (firefly pose)
      Galavasana
      Eka pada koundinyasana I (scissors)
      Eka pada koundinyasana II (twisted scissors)

      And there will be excursions included such as kayaking, snorkeling, visiting some local beaches. On site we will have constellation presentation, language class, walking meditations, guided hikes and more!

      It is a great combination of yogasana, meditation and relaxation. This is 5 star luxury and the studios are incredible!

      Happy to have you with us. $100 OFF by August 30th registration.

      Peace in all ways,
      Silvia

      PS I will email you this info and include a 12 page client package about this retreat
