Carolyn Belko, accomplished yoga adept and teacher has been practicing in the area of this pristine location for over 30 years. The expansive space, silence, and power of the environment has fed her inner journey and now yours. She will lead the Iyengar Yoga Retreats facilitating a transformative experience.

Spacious accommodations welcome you on three beach front properties facing sunrises over the sea. Time for walks or swims in the warm sea waters, or perhaps a nap in the hammocks under a palapa await you between yoga practice sessions. The small group retreats allows us to connect with each other re-forging bonds in the community, opening our hearts with nature and each other.

Authentic gourmet vegetarian meals and refreshments prepared with affection by our local chef complement the practice and stay.

Reflections on Retreats



Poem by Alison

Sunrise of orange and yellow
Over the sea
Swimming with the jellyfish
Under the lunar eclipse of the
Scorpio moon
Ego dissolves with the twisting
Bharadvajasna
Unfurling on the beach of solitude
Awash in tiger striped prints
Only to reveal the treasures of
Going deeper
The tide high and low filling the
Air in sea smells
Birds calling to wake up
Cats roaming free
Teachers sharing their gifts
Belly full
Heart open
Hari Om
