Yelapa Yoga Holiday Mexico

Holman Health's theme this year is slowing down, ahhhhhhh... being still, being who we are, stepping outside the rat race and remembering what is important: breath, community, consciousness. You will apply this to your slow food eating, to your slow yoga, your slow days on the beach.

  • Free Wi-Fi

Enjoy 7 nights accommodation at Pura Vida in Yelapa and 1 in Puerto Vallarta. Holman Health can match you with others or single rooms may be possible for an additional fee.

Pura Vida is a beautiful new retreat center, with most rooms that open up to the bay. All rooms have hot showers and private bath along with security boxes in each room. Also, there is one dorm-style room for four people. The hotel has free Wi-Fi.


Upon arrival in Mexico

You meet for one night in a romantic old town Puerto Vallarta, staying right on the beach at the Emperador Hotel. On Saturday morning, you walk right across the walkway to the boat that takes you on a beautiful 45-minute ride to Yelapa, often visited and welcomed by dolphins or whales en route!

In Yelapa, you will walk five minutes to your home for the week, Pura Vida Wellness Center. Located a short walk from town, you enjoy an incredible view of the bay, sometimes spotting whales while you dine on the patio, or as you stretch with the patio yoga.

Yoga on the patio or indoor bamboo deck

Overlooking the bay, accompanied by the birds. You generally do sunrise and sunset yoga, and various profound teachings, meditations, processes, and workshops.

You will have plenty of activities scheduled, yet keeping things as flexible and open as possible to allow people to create their own experience, with free time to relax, swim or snorkel every day, roam the village, hike the river valley, play in waterfalls, sip from coconuts, or drink fresh fruit juices on the beach.

There are extra options available for a very reasonable fee, including massage, whale watching, snorkeling, and other boat trips, island visits, parasailing, and more. Please note that everything is optional, but Holman Health encourages you to attend as many of the yoga and oneness classes to help create sacred energy for the group.

What does a typical day look like?

Sunrise yoga (sometimes with an optional meditation beforehand), then breakfast. Then, you either have an activity (playshop, hike, island or beach visit) or just leisure time to stroll town or visit the beach for swimming, sunning, eating lunch, and more.

Then a second yoga class before sunset. Then dinner, usually at the hotel, but a couple of times, you will go out to sample some of the excellent local restaurants. Holman Health will also offer a couple of playshops (open to suggestions, possibly meditation, breath, healing, and more)

Included excursions

This retreat includes a guided hike.

Retreat location

Yelapa is a delightful Mexican fishing village, located on a sleepy little bay just south of Puerto Vallarta. Since there are no roads to Yelapa (one of the things we love most about the town), it takes a 45-minute boat ride from Puerto Vallarta to the village. As there are no roads in Yelapa, there are no cars, less noise, less pollution, and less stress. The donkeys used for transport make their own noise and pollution, but you'll manage!


Included are two meals each day, which gives you the freedom to explore the town for some delicious local foods. Meals in Yelapa: healthy buffet breakfast each morning after yoga, and one other delicious buffet meal each day (lunch or dinner).

The food is fresh and delicious, including local fish, chicken, enchiladas, tortillas, ceviche, beans, avocado, pies, fruit (papaya, banana, pineapple, melon, and more). Fresh fruit beverages. Yum!

The following meals are included:

  • Breakfast

The following dietary requirement(s) are served and/or catered for:

  • Regular (typically includes meat and fish)
If you have special dietary requirements it's a good idea to communicate it to the organiser when making a reservation
