Awaken to Lila

Awaken to Lila

From October 29 2017 to November 3, 2017

Awaken to Lila: Attune to the play of life. Immerse yourself in the practices of yoga, which go way beyond physical postures. Connect with like-minded individuals, nature and yourself.
Heal, transform, get inspired, be free. Alongside Yoga classes (Hatha Flow, Yin, Restorative), Pranayama, Chanting and Meditation, we will explore various concepts of Yoga Philosophy like the Yamas, Niyamas and Chakras. Through carefully planned activities, we will play and tap into our innate creativity.

The lush natural surroundings will invite you to slow down, rest, and appreciate beauty everywhere. There will be plenty of time for quiet introspection. This retreat is designed to help you re-center and remember what is important to you so you can feel empowered to live a purposeful life and manifest your most heartfelt desires.

Nestled between a white-sand beach and the mountains, on a 10-acre property only accessible by boat, resides the eco-chic retreat center called Xinalani. Despite being only 12 miles south of Puerto Vallarta (making for easy travel to and from), Xinalani feels like its own island. Xinalani is a one-of-a-kind Retreat Center bringing together the best yoga facilities, beautiful eco-chic accommodation, delicious healthy food and supporting staff to make your dream retreat come true, all set on a wide pristine beach and a jungle of breathtaking natural beauty. Come enjoy your dream stay at our nature retreat. With four stunning yoga spaces, a temazcal (ancient sweat lodge), beach club, lounge bar, sand terrace, oceanfront spa, and a restaurant for yogis, Xinalani is a sanctuary of wellness and serenity.
