During this retreat, you will be staying at Casa Los Mangos, a wooden cabin with spacious terraces. Casa Los Mangos can fit up to 14 people in three bedrooms with bathroom and two mezzanines. This is where Volcan Laguna lodges visitors to the Volcan Laguna's project.

Volcan Laguna is continuously remodeling and adapting the lodging to become an "off-grid" venue, and you can help as well. Together with you, visitors, volunteers, yogi, and art residents, the aim is to live in a permanently changing community of people who deeply cares for the health of the environment.

Program

After you finished this workshop, you will have experienced a ceremony with the medicine of the "abuela" and a fire ceremony with the medicine of the word. There will be a talk about the tools and techniques for creating effective rituals that support your overall health. You will be able to safely incorporate this wisdom to your overall yoga practice.

Retreat location

This retreat will take place in the volcanic lagoon of Santa Maria del Oro in Nayarit, Mexico. Volcan Laguna is located inside the crater, directly on the waterfront. With few inhabitants, this lagoon is a very calm and magical place during the week. The weekend brings quite a number of visitors and boats, yet Santa Maria del Oro Lagoon is still quite unknown to most visitors of the region.
