Why do we keep going back to Haramara? Just ask yourself! It seems it's mostly about one another: meeting new people, opening to new friendships, exploring on and off the mat in keeping with whatever intentions bring you to this magical place.
Every year it gets better. Those entirely new to the experince arrive into the welcoming energies of those who've been here before. And every year our host Sajeela de la Borbolla and her staff offer somethng new, something better, some new refinement, from more comfy casitas to more delightful food to more spa services to the inifiniti pool to more and more that supports us in doing yoga, relaxing, and having a great time!
Come again and immerse yourself in a week-long yoga retreat at Haramara Resort! Surrounded by lush jungle just 30 miles north of Puerto Vallarta International Airport on Mexico's Central Pacific Coast, Haramara's setting, design and vibe are perfect for letting go and opening to the best new year of your life. Located just outside the picturesque town of Sayulita, Mexico, its tranquil beaches, energizing surf and magnificent sunset are ideal setting for renewal and transformation. Our daily schedule offers sunrise meditation and pranayama (or sleep in!), three yoga classes (Vinyasa Flow and Gentle Yoga, and evening Relax Deeeply), and an array of both on-site and off-site activities and excursions.
Yoga Practice: Daily classes and workshops are designed for new and beginning to advanced students and teachers. With the support of Mark and his assistants, classes are taught to accommodate different levels of ability and interest. Morning classes start with Sun Salutations and standing poses to warm, awaken, strengthen and open the body, then flow into backbends, core refinement, twists, hip openers, forward bends, and inversions. Arm balances are sprinkled into the classes for anyone interested. All aspects of the yoga practice can be further explored in mid-day workshops on focused topics. All classes emphasize proper alignment, energetic actions, use of props, and modifications to make the practice accessible, while also offering plenty of space for more advanced exploration of asanas. Morning classes are by design more energizing while afternoonclasses are pretty purely relaxing and restorative – the perfect complement to an afternoon of napping, surfing, or playing at the beach or in the jungle.
Accommodations: Spacious casitas are sprinkled along the paths leading from the Yoga Pavillion down to the beach. We offer a variety of accommodations: single, double, triple, quadruple and group (8) occupancy casitas. Private bathrooms, hot open air showers, comfortable beds, awe-inspiring panoramic views, candles and gas lanterns make the casitas as charming and serene as can be.
Food & Dining: The food at Haramara is amazing. Local and international chefs prepare exquisite meals using local organic produce and seafood caught fresh daily. If you are vegan or have other special food interests, the kitchen staff will happily prepare your meals accordingly. The food is all organic, clean, healthy, delicious and beautifully presented. The dining pavillion is a beautiful ridge-top cabana overlooking the jungle and sea. Sharing food and conversation is one of the great highlights of any Haramara retreat.
