Micheline Berry Mexico Yoga Retreat Program

Come celebrate Thanksgiving on the Mexican Nayarit Riviera, where your villa sits just footsteps from the crystalline blue waters of the Pacific Ocean. Deep encounters in nature combined with yoga practices will allow you to release tension, grief, and stress, and return to your somatic roots of well-being and original state of happiness.

Immerse yourself in deeply nurturing Liquid Asana yoga and mindfulness meditation journeys with Micheline Berry and in the evocative live music of singer and songwriter Joey Lugassy.

Enjoy eco-safaris, such as surfing, paddle boarding, or even experiencing a rare dive with wild dolphins, swimming, singing, and playing with wild them in the open seas. Take a trip to the charming fishing and artistic village, Sayulita, where you will visit local ateliers.

Experience periods of silent reflection and the best of Ayurvedic bodywork, treatments, Abhyanga, and health consultations at Villa Ananda’s Ayurvedic Spa. These come at extra costs. You will leave creatively inspired, well fed, and physically renewed from this nurturing, culturally enriched, and explorative retreat.

Included excursions

Enjoy eco-safari and dive with wild dolphins in one of the few places in the world where you can swim and play with wild dolphins in their own environment. This will be Micheline's fourth time visiting this pod of dolphins with the marine biologist she works with in Puerto Vallarta. There will also be an excursion to the charming village Sayulita to shop and to visit local artist ateliers.
