“Community – Practice – Heart's Desire”
Yoga in Yelapa with Annie and Wendy
March 19-26, 2022
Join Annie and Wendy for a late winter retreat to the precious village of Yelapa, Mexico. Just a 45 minute boat ride south of Puerto Vallarta, Yelapa is nestled around a pristine bay, surrounded by sandy beaches and lush tropical mountains – a complete departure from the hectic pace of a typical Mexican tourist town. This week long retreat will provide you with the opportunity to connect to the earth, to the sea, to nature’s rhythms, to the village community, and to yourself.
Each morning you will have the opportunity to greet the day with a sunrise practice on the yoga terrace overlooking Yelapa bay, followed by breakfast. Our dynamic mid-morning asana practice will be completed with pranayama and meditation, and deepened with restorative afternoon sessions. This weeklong uninterrupted rhythm of practice provides us the opportunity to cultivate the art of attention, deep listening, and awakening to our heart's desire.
There will also be ample time to nap in a hammock, lounge on the beach, and to wander the charming, car-free streets of the village. Additional adventures and opportunities to explore the area will also be available.
Accommodations at Pura Vida are open air bungalows located within a tropical garden hillside just above the ocean shore. Each bungalow has 2 queen size beds with a private bathroom. A limited number of single units are also available.
Fresh, locally inspired meals will be communally served in a variety of settings. Two evenings of the week we will venture into the village to explore and enjoy the hospitality of local restaurants and cafes.
This is a unique opportunity to experience a week of yoga, co-created by two seasoned yoga instructors. Together Annie and Wendy offer a yoga practice which embodies alignment, reflection on the self and celebration of the heart.
Three months of yoga instruction and the ability to walk the uneven and steep paths of a rustic village required.
If you are interest in joining us in 2022 and/or want more information, please contact Wendy.

This was an absolutely phenomenal yoga experience. Annie and Wendy are rock star instructors. I appreciate the adjustments and learned so many things I will use in my home practice. I know this week helped my posture, I feel an inch taller!

The connection with the local community of Yelapa, trips to local restaurants, community dance performance and hikes make this a unique yoga retreat.

Slowly finding myself drawn into the transformative awakening of yoga, Wendy and Annie are incredible teachers, not instructors, with a deep passion and a vast reservoir of expertise and knowledge. I close my eyes, listen and learn. Three times a day in the most heavenly setting and it's simply divine.
