Taoist Yoga Retreat Mexico

Based on Chinese medicine and the Taoist five elements philosophy, these four retreats are designed to find and establish balance and harmony by aligning with the natural flow of life. Each season represents changes in nature and in the way you live and practice yoga. Each retreat is dedicated to a season which is represented by its specific element, the body organs which are more active, the food that is better to be eaten, and the type of practice that better works.

Equilibrium Healing Resort is a peaceful haven hidden in the mountains south of Puerto Vallarta designed to create memorable and lasting effects on well-being and peace. This healing ground conceived as a technology detox retreat based on nature and soul-nurturing food and activities.

Designed as a healing place for the mind, body, and soul, the place offers clean gourmet cuisine, unique eco-friendly architecture, and a stress relieving environment unique to the grounds it is built on. Minimal impact on the natural surroundings was the main focus when developing the unique architecture of Equilibrium Healing Resort.

All the common areas and casitas were designed to create a comfortable immersion in nature with the smallest ecological footprint. The environment is purposely created for the guests to have a real opportunity to disconnect and to detox from all digital influence. Due to the location, Equilibrium Healing Resort is free of cell phone signal, electrical power, and Wi-Fi in the casitas or the resort in its entirety.

Each of Equilibrium Healing Resort's casitas has a unique architecture and design inspired by the nature surrounding it. It is the new kind of luxury and comfort in the middle of the wild nature. The rooms feature candlelit and have no windows, just protection to feel safe but you can still hear and feel the nature.

The rooms are also equipped with super comfortable beds and pillow for the top quality sleep. Equilibrium Healing Resort has eight casitas, each with different options of accommodation (single, double, and triple).

Retreat location

Equilibrium Healing Resort is truly delighted about their location. They are unique and secluded from any other hotels. They are hidden in the heart of the Sierra Madre, down the coast of Cabo Corrientes. Equilibrium Healing Resort is proud not to having a number on their address but having to be located in between two bridges, Guinas and Puerta.

They created Equilibrium without "bothering" the natural beauty of the jungle. They cut no trees and help nature grows as wild as it pleases. Equilibrium Healing Resort has no electricity in the rooms, just solar panels for the common areas. The nights are truly magical on candle and starlight.

At Equilibrium Healing Resort, you will forget about social media because to get the signal, you need to get up the mountain or drive for five minutes. Equilibrium Healing Resort is proud to be a digital detox location.
