Playa Viva is a sustainable haven on the Pacific coast of Mexico, nestled between the ocean and the majestic Sierra Madre Mountains, on a mile of private beach.
This retreat will be a deep dive into living the practice of yoga, for returning to life with more mindfulness, openness, and freedom. Playa Viva provides the perfect backdrop, with its emphasis on positive social and environmental impact for the local ecosystem. The property’s nearly 200 acres include an estuary, an Aztec archaeological site, turtle sanctuary, coastal forest, and mangrove ecosystem which support an array of stunning wildlife.
While not in practice, enjoy relaxing on the property’s 200 acres of protected land, at the on-site pool, or on the mile-long private beach. Spend time in community or take time to yourself, read a book, lounge in the sun, or catch a nap in a hammock.
