Yoga del Sol Adventure Retreats
These yoga retreats combine yoga with adventurous activities in beautiful locations that most often include sun, water and wildlife. On our last retreat, we visited the quaint town of Los Barriles in Baja California, Mexico staying at the famous Palmas de Cortez Hotel right on the beach. We practiced yoga daily and had many adventures, including biking, kayaking, paddle boarding, snorkeling, beach walking, bonfire, poetry reading, pickle ball, visiting a natural hot springs, massage treatments, relaxing by the pool, and many excellent meals together.
Yoga was offered daily outside with oceanside breezes. This meant that while we were practicing, we enjoyed stunning views of the sea, calming sounds of the waves, and warm wind on our skin. Yoga classes were designed for all levels with modifications for beginning yogis and opportunities for advanced practitioners to grow their practice. We spent a lot of time talking about the powerful teachings of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras — learning more about the important practice of yoga off the mat.
We explored the foothills of the Sierra De La Laguna Mountains on mountain bikes and visited a natural hot springs along a on cool river surrounded by boulders and waterfalls.
SPA TREATMENTS were an option for those that wanted to skip the mountain bike ride. We found a charming spa in town that picked guests up at the hotel and everyone raved about their treatments.
The Sea of Cortez offers beautiful crystalline waters that we explored by kayak, stand up paddle board, swimming or snorkeling. The turquoise waters, recently declared as a UNESCO site, drop dramatically right off the coast and are host to whales, manta rays, and thousands of varieties of tropical fish. Jacques Cousteau once called this area “The aquarium of the world”.
