We will provide you with the beauty and the style, you bring your open heart and prepare to smile wide on each exhaled breath. 

Expect Only the Best; Anticipate Joy

Your retreat will be a dream from the time you choose to join us to your steps off of the plane back home. JanalynRose will guide you through morning yoga practice that will wake up your body mind and heart. Directly following each daily yoga practice will be incredible foods and adventures through the vibrance of Sayulita, Nayarit Mexico, a town with warm, tropical waters, lush jungle, gracious locals and the finest culinary fusions.

Explore the town’s offerings, shop at local boutiques, savor street tacos, and have a margarita on the beach. Discover everything this charming and vivid town has to offer.

Location, Accommodations and Meals

Sayulita is 30 minutes North West of Puerto Vallarta in the Nayarit region of Mexico. Known for its lush jungle, ancient history and local community of healers, Nayarit is one of the most beautiful areas Mexico has to offer. Sayulita offers a small town charm with colorful prayer flags throughout cobblestone streets, professional surfers on waves out front and caballeros riding stunning horses past both (yes, you can join them if you are curious). 

Our accommodations are stunning, overlooking the vast expanse of the ocean and nestled into the trees with bird song every morning. Located on the Southern side of town, Amor Boutique Hotel is walking distance to the town square but tucked away for quiet nights and steps to the beach. Amor Boutique has an onsite spa and the elegant O Restaurant, yoga palapa above a double infinity pool and massage offerings. Each room is designed in true hacienda style and includes a full bathroom, kitchenette, air conditioning and wifi. Amor Boutique Hotel is a serene healing space with lush interior gardens. Sway in hammocks,  find a quiet spot for meditation on the deck of your Villa, or walk steps over the hill to a secluded beach. What is calling you is waiting for you here. Follow the sound of your heart to the beating drums on the beach of our sweet town.

Along with your morning yoga practice, a light breakfast and the finest coffee will be provided daily. Lunch is your chance to explore Sayulita and the variety of foods it has to offer. Your choices range from small taco stands to chic cafes to fine dining restaurants. Dinner will be provided every evening at the choice restaurant in the village.

Stand Up Paddle Yoga Teacher Training- Punta Mita, Mexico

The hot Mexican sun burned our backs, but the water was only just cool enough to soothe it. 13 Girls learning, teaching, growing and enjoying the scenery of Punta Mita Mexico. The locals must have laughed all the way from our arrival to departure through our Spanglish, attempt to practice yoga through the set waves of the best swell in the area in five years, and our love of everything coconut- shrimp, fish, ice cream, even Rickaroons- (but that is another story). Maybe next time you will want to go leanr how to teach yoga on a paddle board......
