I participated in Elana's yoga and surf retreat this past January. I do yoga occasionally and I had never tried surfing. Both were somewhat intimidating to me. I am 47 and in pretty good shape but not an athlete.
I was very impressed with Elana's yoga teaching skills. Elana has been practicing yoga for over 30 years and the sequence of poses for each class was well though out, her instruction was calm and clear and supportive of any yoga skill level.
The classes were geared towards prepping the body for surfing. Also, the restorative yoga sessions after surfing were TRULY restorative.
I very much enjoyed the hotel, the staff was very friendly and helpful. I loved the location on the north side of Sayulita, a 5 minute walk to the central square but in a more quiet area of town. I STRONGLY recommend Hotelito Los Suenos.
I cannot wait to go back!

Yoga with Elana was a dream come true for me. It exceeded my expectations. I decided to fulfill my dream this year which was to go on a yoga retreat. I came across Elena’s yoga and surf retreat on your website and thought bonus, I love to surf every time I get near an ocean and yoga is my passion. I remember falling in love with Sayulita the first time I discovered it and always wanted to go back; here was the perfect/meant to be opportunity. Elana is one of the most charismatic women I’ve ever met. She is so talented in many ways…you will have to go on her retreat to experience them. The moment my eyes connected with Elana I knew I made the right choice. She has such a kindred spirit, a bright beautiful loving inviting smile and made me feel comfortable right away. Her classes were exceptional. She has over 30 years of experience and studied many times in Indian which really truly shows. I absolutely love her style. We did so many different poses and to my surprise a few I have never done before which made me very happy. I love how she would say each pose in sank-script . It gave a real good yogi feel for me. Opening and closing each class with an Om centred me hugely. Elana has a magical voice; we had the privilege of her singing and play guitar to us at the end of class. It was truly magnificent to be on this journey with 16 like minded wonderful women. I was very connected to my spirit while I was there.
