Yoga and Surf Retreat in Puerto Escondido, Mexico

Mexico Yoga Retreat

Our yoga and surf retreats are the epitome of a balanced, healthy, and fun adventure holiday. Taking a light-hearted and holistic approach to well-being, with a focus on mind, body, and soul. Enjoy daily yoga, meditation, and surf lessons or surf trips for those who would rather a guide than a teacher.

Each week, enjoy two complimentary massage treatments to work out tension built up from surfing or to simply rest and unwind. To balance out the body and mind, we enjoy cultural activities such as a boat trip through the lagoon to swim in the phosphorescence or visit the waterfalls or a remote beach location and ride horses on the beach (and a sunset cocktail!).

Touched by Yoga Retreat Mexico Program

A serene and breathtaking setting for a beach yoga retreat. Each morning, a stunning sunrise welcomes you to this pristine paradise and gives way to the tropical sun. The beach front comes alive with the warm breeze and the sound of the ocean waves.

Our yoga retreats are designed with you in mind. Whether you are coming to try yoga for the first time, if you want to learn how to use yoga to compliment your surfing, or if you have been practicing for years and want to deepen your personal practice in a small group setting, we are committed to making yoga accessible, fun, and safe for everyone.

We welcome everyone from beginners to advanced practitioners to join us. We inspire, care, and create an atmosphere of discovery and possibility for all participants. All you’ll need is an open mind and an inquisitive nature! You will love your time here!

With up to 10 yoga and meditation sessions and a pranayama session included in your stay with us, we hope to give you the chance to really feel the benefits of a regular yoga practice, or if you’re a seasoned yogi, you have the chance to go deep and really focus on your yoga practice for a week or two with our experienced teacher as your guide.

If that’s not enough, you can add some one-one-one sessions with our practitioners to feel the benefit of bespoke attention. If you have any specific yoga, meditation, or pranayama questions, please do contact us.

Miguel (Tivo) Ramirez is our surf facilitator and he has been teaching for over a decade and is a qualified ASP judge at tournaments all over Mexico. He takes his trade very seriously offering surf lessons that are educational, technical, and above all, out of the world fun!

Tivo and his team take safety as priority and make educated decisions around what equipment to use and what beaches are appropriate on each day for each surfer. The daily itinerary remains flexible to the tide and swell so that you get the best of the ocean every day.

You will feel both comfortable and safe enough to push your own limits and will come out a better surfer for it. Tivo keeps teacher to student ratio very low meaning that you have more time with your teacher and your teacher has fewer people to concentrate on at any given time.

We work with incredible trained and qualified professionals to provide massage and body work treatments after adventure packed days full of yoga and surfing. Your body will be in heaven finding relief of tension caused by surfing, pre-existing injuries, or working long hours behind a computer. Our therapists offer deep tissue, remedial or of course, you can also choose to just soothe your tired surf and yoga limbs and muscles. Everyone can benefit from the therapies on offer.

Part of going on an overseas adventure is about seeing and experiencing a new culture and environment. Puerto Escondido and its surrounds is close to Touched by Yoga’s heart and we are inspired by the people, the colors, the places, and endeavor to share as many of them with you as possible.

We include a one day excursion to give you a taste of the magical place your visiting. For those who would like to see a little more, we can gladly help you coordinate any of the amazing local excursions (added extra and weather permitted).

Retreat location

Puerto Escondido is host to one of the world’s most coveted waves. Zicatella, otherwise known as Mexican pipeline, the wave is popular for its character and size. Even for the most experienced surfer, it presents a challenge because it is so sensitive to different conditions: tides, size, strength, and direction.

Catching a good ride isn’t as easy as it looks, but once you make the right pick, the reward is a 200 meters to 300 meters long and often thrilling ride down the line through sections of ripple walls and heaving barrels.

The wave has been a popular one for avid, recreational, and professional surfers for decades with the big wave riders contest held here every October. Our accommodation is right on the beach at Zicatella where you could spend hours watching those brave enough to surf the big waves as the sun sets (cocktail in hand).

Do not be alarmed! Mexican pipeline will not be our beach of choice for novice and first-time surfers who will get their feet wet with lessons on calmer waters which are found at nearby Carizalillo, La Punta, La Bara, and many other spots both north and south of Zicatela.

There are ideal waves here for everyone of every level. Surfers who are not looking for lessons but instead want to be taken to waves away from crowds can spend half a day with breakfast or lunch at secret spots with our guides, then be driven back to the accommodation.
