Begin Again
New Year’s 2020/2021

December 26-January 2


A Spacious Gathering for Yoga Practice

In a secluded, contained environment, we’ll explore the practice of yoga as a source of renewal and revitalization. As 2020 slips into our rearview mirror, we will take every precaution and arrive at a place that holds space for healing and nourishing from the inside out. In the serenity of the jungle, we’ll turn off all our devices to go offline from the buzz of it all and go online with  our hearts, breath, and practice.

For 7 days we’ll collectively commit to being off-grid. We’ll spend our days plugged into asana, meditation, pranayama, and chanting to support a return to the center of our being. These practices, along with plenty of time for beach, play, and rest, will strengthen the energetic body and help us connect with our innermost intention for this new year while honoring the intensity and challenge that has been this last year.

Amidst the surf and cliffs along the coast of Mexico, we will revel in stillness, quiet evenings, and moments emerged in nature. This spacious gathering will be about simplicity, ease, and celebrating the joy of this life.

*Let me be clear, the rooms have no electricity and no connectivity… just nature, quiet, and time to listen to the breath.

Travel details and inclusions

In addition, the staff has implemented very high standards of cleanliness and amended meal set up to eliminate the need for shared utensils.

Special policies:
