with Erinn Lewis and Mark Herron
April 23-30, 2016
Let the supercharged energy of Tulum’s sunshine, ocean, and Mayan culture clear the cobwebs off your heart and drop you into sukha–a state of clarity and sweetness. Experience inspiring, challenging, and diverse styles of yoga with a smile on your face, including vinyasa for all levels, slow flow, yin, and meditation practices to move you, ground you, quiet you, and energize you from the inside out.
At this retreat, spend a week in the Yucatan Peninsula on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world and wake up each day to the sound of the surf just outside your cabana. Enjoy yoga twice daily, fresh and nourishing meals, spectacular Mayan ruins, beachy cliffs, and world-class spa treatments–or simply spend the day swimming in the ocean and swinging in a hammock until your cares melt away.
Like many other One Yoga journeys, you have the freedom to decide each day what your agenda will be. Wake up with the sunrise for a day of invigorating yoga and adventure, or sleep in and laze the day away in a beach hammock with the nourishing sun and sound of the surf as your companion. Whatever your style, you can rest assured that you and your practice are welcome here. Our teachers offer classes in a variety of styles that meets all abilities and needs, including vinyasa for all levels, slow flow Hatha yoga, yin yoga, and meditation–all with expert guidance and practices personally tailored to the group.
At Maya Tulum Resort, you can walk from your cabana straight into the Caribbean Sea for a swim, enjoy delicious and healthy meals that magically show up three times a day, and soak in the prana of this magical shore. If you are feeling adventurous, you can visit the nearby Mayan ruins, snorkel in the cenotes, or enjoy the bright colors and sounds of nature at the nearby bio-reserve. If you are feeling introspective, simply take a yoga class or two, have a massage (or two!), relax in a hammock, sip on a coconut, and watch the stars illuminate above the waves. If you are fortunate, you might even spot a sea turtle coming up to lay her eggs on the placid beach at night.
The resort’s natural thatched-roofed cabanas, steps away from the ocean, blend comfort with nature. Every cabana has a sitting area, tiled bathroom, open shower, and a 5-gallon bottle of filtered water that is refilled as needed. Each cabana also has U.S. outlets to charge your devices and a private safe for your valuables.
Part of practicing yoga is nourishing the body with healthy foods, and in this respect, the Maya Tulum Resort shines. Their restaurant serves an all-you-care-to-eat vegetarian and fresh seafood buffet, and these delicious, communal meals are often the highlight of the day. Breakfasts may include fresh local juices, fruits, granola, eggs, potatoes, french toast, yogurt, coffee, and teas. Lunches and dinner may include local specialties, abundant fresh salads, soups, homemade chilaquiles, shrimp ceviche, stuffed avocado, quesadillas, curried rice, fresh local fish, and a dinner dessert that is always anticipated. Inbetween meals, you can always order from the restaurant and enjoy guacamole, fish tacos, fresh juice, or a cold cerveza.

Travel, Additional Information & FAQ’s
The Maya Tulum Resort is 90 miles south of Cancun on the Caribbean coast of Northeast Mexico known as the Riviera Maya, a verdant area bordered by a pristine blue ocean and emerald-green tropical forests and jungles. The world’s second longest reef stretches from Quintana Roo to Honduras with miles of some of the best beaches in the Western Hemisphere. The Riviera Maya is home to tranquil sea coves, bays, lagoons, caves, cenotes, and other landmarks that are vestiges of a culture thousands of years old.
The influence of ancient Mayan culture on the Yucatan Peninsula makes this area unlike any other in Mexico. The resort is located just a few miles from the ruins of the 13th century Pyramid El Castillo (The Castle) that provide a breathtaking view of the sea crashing below. Tulum boasts an unspoiled native village that is a refreshing contrast to the tourist towns farther north.
The Maya Tulum Resort lies on a secluded road, removed from the other hotels in the region, with its own dramatic beach and private cover. Should you wish to retreat into a world of your own, the resort is self-contained, but with plenty of opportunities to explore the unique offerings of the Riviera Maya and its ancient, mysterious culture. We will be there during one of the most beautiful times of year, when the temperatures range from 78 to 85°F and the water is warm yet refreshing. Guests are free to explore the different beaches in the area, many an easy ride or even a walk from the resort, or simply relax on your private beach listening to the ever-present rhythm of the waves and enjoying nature in all its splendor.
