Join Micheline and Joey for an unforgettable Thanksgiving yoga retreat. Frolic under the sun, where the verdant Pacific rain forest meets the crystalline waters of Nayarit, just footsteps from your own exquisite private villa. You will immerse yourself into yoga, mindfulness meditation, live music, surf or stand up paddleboarding, wild dolphin dives in the open seas, and farm-to-table Mexican Gastronomy. You will also pamper yourself with deep Ayurvedic bodywork, treatments, and consultations, and have a ridiculous laughter.
Located on a private beach cove, Villa Ananda is a stunning five-star private villa, where you will feel wrapped in the bosom of the lush, verdant tropics and deeply cared for by Micheline, Joey, and the villa’s staff and therapists.
The private villa offers beautiful suites, each with their own private bathroom and most with an outdoor patio. Distinct from most retreat centers, this villa offers intimate yet spacious grounds that will allow both interaction and time alone to contemplate. You will be awestruck by the tranquil beauty and attention to detail throughout.
