"LA BUENA VIDA"
YOGA & MEDITATION RETREAT
NOVEMBER 25, 2018 - DECEMBER 1, 2018
Come join Serena on the beautiful beaches of Tulum, Mexico for an unforgettable week of living "La Buena Vida", the beautiful life - a life full of happiness, freedom, health, and whatever fulfills your soul.
Two daily yoga classes will be offered, including one sweaty and energizing yoga class in the morning; and a workshop or a gentle restorative yoga class in the afternoon. Yoga classes will be open to all levels. Get ready to sweat, flow, breathe and let go of all that no longer serves you.
You will experience the breathtaking magic of Tulum. You will be staying at the "Amansala Eco-Chic Resort and Spa". The Amansala is located on the pristine beaches of Tulum - approximately 2 hours south of Cancun. Famous for the spectacular Mayan Ruins, clear turquoise water, and white sandy beaches, Tulum is an eco-friendly paradise preferred by yogis and travelers for its relaxed bohemian-chic feel and breathtaking beaches. You can enjoy visiting the Mayan Ruins, or swimming in the Grande Cenote (beautiful natural hidden swimming hole). You can also enjoy relaxing on the beach, snorkeling, or exploring the local culture.
