While staying here, you will certainly feel at home. Located just downstairs from the Tribal Yoga Studio and just above the Acuatic Tulum Dive Center, you have convenient access to Tribal and Acuatic's facility and staff as well as Tulum’s neighborhood restaurants and shops.

Acuatic / Tribal is on the bike path to the beach and is about a 20-minute bike or 10-minute taxi drive to the beach. Although you are not directly on the beach, you will have fabulous access to the most sought-after cenote dive sites and easy access to the magnificent Tulum Beach and the cultural attractions of Tulum Pueblo.

They have reliable internet at no extra charge in both Tulum and XCalak. However, this will be the perfect time to hit pause and let go of the digital world. Use this retreat to notice the breeze in the surrounding trees and the warm air on your face or relax on a nearby hammock before you are off to your next yoga class or dive adventure.

Program

This retreat is like no other if you are an adventurous person who also wants to take care of yourself and touch the breath of your being. The locations, the guides and teachers and the activities are the best available. You will not only have fabulous experiences but also meet places and people who can introduce you to yourself and some of the most amazing natural areas on the planet.

If you are a certified diver and want to experience the best of the spectacularly unique cenotes and Caribbean coastal reef while improving your yoga, this week is for you. If you are not certified, Tribal can help you get there. They can certify you as part of these unique and memorable experiences. Just let them know and find a friend to come with you. You can both get certified and become lifelong dive and yoga buddies.

Tribal Yoga Tulum has the perfect combination of yoga and scuba / free diving for an experience that will cultivate a sense of inner peace while fostering that ideal sense of accomplishment as you improve both your diving and yoga skills while you fill your energetic tank. Give yourself this special week full of mind and body opening as you are introduced to ancient places and waters that will fill your senses and soul.

Introduce yourself to another existence on land and underwater in some of the hidden and not so hidden parts of the Yucatan. Sometimes, the most amazing jewels are right in front of you but you cannot see them until you observe them with the right eye. Let your eyes be opened and see the wonder all around. As you practice and dive in amazing places, you will cultivate peace and quiet for the mind, refreshing energy for the body.

This intensive one week will allow you to drop out of normal life for a period and renew as well as refresh your inner spirit and zen. With incredible teachers, guides, lodging, and natural areas, you will immerse yourself in your yoga practice and diving in a way you have never allowed yourself before.
