2015 Yoga Retreat in Mexico
Join Ellen and Sally, March 7 – 15, 2015 for the annual MANJARI IN MEXICO retreat on the picture perfect island of Isla Mujeres. Meet us on our mats for a twice-daily yoga practice that will honor seasoned and newer practitioners alike. Hotel Nabalam offers you a place to enjoy the beauty of the Caribbean sea and its sunsets with personalized services and attention. Isla Mujeres never fails to provide an amazing backdrop for lots of yoga, lots of relaxation and lots of laughs. Two yoga classes daily, long walks on the beach, amazing food, on-site spa (spa services not included) All combine to insure you come back restored, refreshed and renewed. During our last three retreats many lasting and deep friendships and bonds were formed on this magical island. We found that there is amazing connection when people are in a place where it is easy to let down habitual defenses and drop more easily into our true selves. Salir del frio! Thaw out in paradise with like-minded souls and get your HOLA on with Ellen and Sally in Isla Mujeres. We welcome yogi's from everywhere with all levels of practice!
The Digs And Details: To get there just grab a flight to Cancun, take a transport to Puerto Juárez and then enjoy an easy breezy (and really fun!) 15-minute ferry ride to the charming Island of Isla Mujeres. (Transport can be set up for you from the airport to the hotel. Ask for details.) Hotel Nabalam — Maya Haven on the beach is located on (and we mean ON!) the North Beach, our favorite beach on Isla Mujeres. In fact our favorite beach — anywhere — period.
The rooms are spacious and chic and there are squishy beds on the beach for your seaside lounging pleasure.
If you like to gaze at the Caribbean blue while you nibble on guacamole (or the yummiest fish tacos, etc.), enjoy Nabalam’s fabulous beach restaurant. If you’d like to get a taste of local cuisine, the town is walking distance from the hotel. (Just don’t let that stop you from renting a golf cart to explore!)
