Posada Corazón is an enchanting bed and breakfast in San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato. It is in a narrow valley, which makes its streets narrow and winding. Most are alleys that cars cannot pass through, and some are long sets of stairs up the mountainsides. Many of the city’s thoroughfares are partially or fully underground. The historic center has numerous small plazas, colonial-era mansions, churches, and civil constructions built using pink or green sandstone.

Start your day with daily transformative yoga classes and meditation, followed by a nutritious breakfast, and then do the activities you wish to be involved in during the day. There are loads of things to do such as reading books, going for walks, exploring architectural details in the area, and relaxing in the leafy courtyards.

Yoga

All yoga programs are breath-centered and explore the power and connection to our vital energy, known as prana. Although you will find classes to honor all forms of yoga, the primary style we use is Prana Vinyasa Flow.

What to expect

  • Expect a nurturing environment with a strong sense of community.
  • Expect to be challenged, supported and creatively inspired.
  • Expect a strong collective of individuals who enjoy freedom of expression, exploring the edge, honoring the power of stillness and the great teacher within.
  • Expect to expand your practice and your heart whether you are just beginning on this path or have been on this journey for years.

Enjoy trips to local galleries to explore San Miguel’s thriving international artist community. The most fabulous, Spanish speaking co-host will also be available to help immerse yourself in San Miguel’s historical culture.

They offer homemade enchiladas or huevo divorciados and the bread basket with homemade marmalade and honey is divine. There are a lot of bars, cafes, and restaurants nearby that offer Mexican cuisine. Their food is primarily a fusion of indigenous Mesoamerican cooking with European, especially Spanish, elements added after the Spanish conquest of the Aztec Empire in the 16th century. The staples are native foods, such as corn, beans, avocados, tomatoes, and chili peppers, along with rice which was brought by the Spanish. Europeans introduced a large number of other foods, the most important of which were meats from domesticated animals (beef, pork, chicken, goat, and sheep), dairy products (especially cheese), and various herbs and spices.

    "I'm not even spiritual, I'm an empirical hard man who understands the power of meditative discipline. These guys are super real and great at what they do. If you need woo with your yoga, it's welcome. I felt welcome as a non woo person."
