Yoga Adventures Worldwide's goal is to make yoga retreats amazing and affordable. Yoga Adventures Worldwide has its own private villa secluded in a beautiful jungle setting right on the beach road in Tulum. The gorgeous Caribbean Sea is just across the street, steps from all of Tulum’s hottest attractions, and miles of beach to walk just past the break in the road. In addition, there is a private pool and beautiful yoga space right in the villa. The house has 5 bedrooms, 3 shared indoor bathrooms and a pool bath, sitting areas to relax both indoors and out , and an ample yoga space for outdoor practice. The restaurant is located just across the street on the beach side where you will enjoy your meals with beautiful ocean views and live music during the evenings in high season.

Tulum is an ecological zone which means rustic luxury. There is electricity around the clock and solar powered internet 24 hours per day at the restaurant just across the street. Sheets and towels are changed only when necessary to conserve the precious natural resources and you will be offered ocean breezes instead of air conditioning. Most of the year the weather is very comfortable and you are lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves just steps from your bed. Yoga Adventures Worldwide heats its own water for showers and tread lightly on the land that hosts us all.

You will start the days with an invigorating Vinyasa flow morning practice, enjoy healthy and fresh meals, and offer free time to relax by the Caribbean sea or explore the wonders of the area.

Ayurvedic massage (non-oil)

Based on the principles of yoga, this amazing massage experience expels toxins and provides deep relaxation. Physically it helps all systems of the body, and mentally it helps relax the mind by removing energies that store past tensions and emotional problems in our body.

Coconut milk and honey

This is an exotic blend from the Yucatan.

Joyful feet (reflexology and foot massage)

Beginning with an exfoliation for feet and calves followed by an application of refreshing gel, reflexology points are then addressed to release tension. Reflexology is based on the theory that points on the bottom of the feet are energetically connected to specific areas of the body. By stimulating these points, the corresponding body parts are benefited. Reflexology neutralizes the effects of stress by inducing a deep state of relaxation that calms the nervous system and allows the body to achieve a state of equilibrium. This treatment ends with a mint hydrating cream that thoroughly refreshes your feet. Hot towels are used during this treatment to achieve deep relaxation.

Marine crystals and papaya

These are excellent exfoliants with firming abilities.

Mayan healing massage

The local Mayan shaman, Daniel, accesses your aura seeking out points of resistance and sources of pain within your body. Through a combination of healing techniques and massage, he will cure what ails you. A truly unique experience that will leave you feeling like new.

Nopal and aloe vera wrap

This treatment is recommended for those with sunburned skin. Aloe vera has a calming effect - refreshing, hydrating, and regenerating the skin quickly. Your therapist will apply a cool aloe vera gel all over the body and then wrap you for 20 minutes in a chilled sheet, while you receive a gentle facial massage. A scented moisturizer, made from the exotic tuna, the fruit of the nopal, highlights this experience.

Reiki therapy and massage

Reiki helps release blockages and imbalances in the energetic body (mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual). Paired with a healing Swedish or deep tissue massage of your choice, this combo will instantly uplift the body and soul.

Shirodhara therapy

Traditional Indian treatment where warmed oil is streamed onto the forhead or Third Eye point to offer complete relaxation. This service must be booked 72 hours in advance.

The feel good massage

Explore what it takes to feel good in this learning experience combined with a wonderful relaxing massage. You will be relaxing on the table receiving a massage, while Margo (registered nurse, Reiki master, and certified massage therapist) educates you on the causes of chronic pain and stress through interactive teaching and demonstration. The second half of the massage, go back to a quiet one hour massage, the best of both worlds. This massage will teach you how to carry yourself and deal with chronic pain for a lifetime.

Thai massage (non-oil)

This massage is based on a system of energy lines known as sen. The objective of a full session is to restore balance in your body-mind through many different techniques that include pressure points and general pressure, as well as stretching exercises using hands, feet, and elbows. This technique releases muscular tension, increases blood flow, stimulates endorphins, and boosts the immune system. Please wear loose fitting clothing. This massage is performed on a cushioned mat on the floor.

  • Review by Julia K. from Portland, OR USA

    "Yoga Adventures WorldWide – Havana, Cuba is a life-changing experience. From the beginning, Christina provided everything we needed to stay informed and prepared for this trip. Christina cares so much, and it truly comes out in the way she runs her programs. She arranged our travel and accommodations in Cuba as well as offered a diverse travel itinerary – allowing for a truly relaxing and inspiring experience."

    "Our hosts were incredibly helpful and warm and contributed to our local Cuba experience. Nina, as always, offered a grounding and spiritual yoga environment for us to practice in – which really balanced our other time exploring the city, the culture, swimming in the ocean, enjoying the nightlife, and even learning how to salsa dance."

    "This trip is a gift that keeps giving. It has opened my eyes and heart to a new beautiful country and culture all while cultivating a seamless experience that combines yoga, life-long friendships, amazing food and music, and memories I will always hold close to my heart. Thank you, Christina and Nina for an extraordinary experience. I so look forward to future adventures with you!"

    "I first encountered Christina and Yoga Adventures Worldwide in October 2015 when I attended the retreat in Morocco. Leading up the retreat I had a million questions and"

    "requests and Christina never hesitated to answer them and assist where she could, always with a friendly and enthusiastic mail (even though I think I must have been driving her crazy). I had an amazing time in Morocco, Christina planned everything to perfection. The accommodation was magnificent, the day trips where well thought out and well organized. And off course the yoga was incredible! After the retreat I knew I would definitely see her again and now my next adventure with Yoga Adventures Worldwide is in Cuba. Again Christina has effortlessly assisted with every request, concern, and travel arrangements. I highly recommend booking your next yoga retreat with Yoga Adventures Worldwide and have no doubt that you will find Christina the perfect host."

  • Review by Aimee M. from Los Angeles, California

    "As per usual, thank you for envisioning, coordinating, and executing such an amazing experience. Cuba remains mostly untouched by the corporate arm that sustains and"

    "controls most of the world. To immerse in a city (Havana) of nearly two million people who never ask, "where's Starbucks?" or "what's the Wi-Fi code?" (A personal favorite and"

    "somewhat shameful question of mine) and to see them operate by interpersonal connection in a way we used to before text and constant access, was refreshing and offered me perspective while reminding me, there is always another way. Being in Cuba and utilizing the connections you developed allowed us to share gave me the opportunity to see, understand, question, and learn about Cuban culture in a way I wouldn't have had otherwise. I am so grateful that you have facilitated this type of unique experience in places around the world. You model a way for people to get to know the people who are the cities we visit. Also, being part of The YAWW family has allowed me to make lifelong friends out of strangers again and again. I feel like the richest woman in the world! I'm a YAWW woman loud and proud! Where to next?"

    "Amazing trip with like-minded individuals who know how to balance serious yoga practice with fun cultural immersion. I can't think of a better way or excuse to travel to wonderful places! Nina is an approachable, authentic, loving instructor. Well prepared pre-departure and during trip, there was flexibility in schedule, welcoming, and accepting of all participants, warm personalities. Yoga Adventures Worldwide picks delicious restaurants, unique experiences, and all at an affordable price. I felt full, satisfied, and eager for the next meal every time."

  • Review by Kelly Anne from Orange County, California

    "I could not have imagined a better experience for my first yoga retreat. Christina took absolutely tremendous care of our small group. She was happy to do some light hand holding in the weeks leading up to the retreat, with my being a little nervous and having lots of questions. Christina's restaurant recommendations were amazing, I could write a dozen reviews for the food in Tulum. Tulum is honestly a magical place, with so much charm and rustic elegance. Everyone I met, from the locals to the expatriates, was warm and friendly. The location of the retreat was so stunning. The beach had the whitest sand and the warmest water. Rebecca Jo was our yoga instructor on the retreat. I did not know what to expect when it came to the yoga practice, as there are so many styles and philosophies, and I am used to very vigorous power yoga. Rebecca Jo led us through the most wonderful series of what I will call workshops, as opposed to classes. Her teaching style and the practice she led us through really opened up my body and mind to something totally new. This was honestly the best thing I have ever done for myself, and I cannot wait to attend another Yoga Adventures Worldwide retreat with Christina!"

    "There is no such place as Tulum. Utopia just offers you the best in paradise, an amazing spot right on the beach and close to all the cool bars, restaurants, shops, and great yoga workshops. I have been there twice and long to go back again. Thanks to Christina and her staff. The only thing I would say is that you should not expect top luxury; if you are looking for plush pillows and linen, Utopia is not the place. Although the lack of luxury is more than compensated for by the fact that you are surrounded by the lovely nature of the jungle and the sea. I recommend to bring ear plugs, as the ocean is super noisy at night, it can be intense!"

  • Review by a traveler from New York City, USA

    "This was my first yoga retreat, as well as the first time I committed to sticking with the practice. Nina was the best teacher and spiritual leader, she kept her words light and connected. This was one of the best experiences ever; I walked away with a greater and calmer sense of self. I also made friends, who I will be connected to for life! Utopia is an eco-chic home on the beach, which is clean and friendly, with amazing fresh food. I highly recommend this if you need to get away and reconnect with yourself and take a time out from the chaos in life that you no longer need."

    "The yoga and spa retreat at Utopia was life-changing. The staff was super attentive, the massage therapist was amazing, and Luna, our yoga teacher, was such a wonderful spirit. She offered the perfect mix of classes, poses, and postures. The food and variety of fresh juices were delicious. We felt completely safe in Tulum at all hours. We went in July, when the weather is hot; however, the location of Utopia, right on the beach, offers a wonderful breeze. Christine, the owner, has developed a wonderful retreat in this perfect location."
