YOGA IN PARADISE RETREAT WITH STEVE & TALYA: paddle boarding & surfing

Zihuatanejo, Mexico

Imagine a week of practicing yoga every day in a palapa on a private beach, so close to the waves you can feel their salty spray on your face (not really, but almost); paddle boarding which we discovered is an awesomely fun activity and a very nice complement to the Turbodog Yoga style (or surfing if you prefer); incredible tasting, fresh and local cuisine;, really cool people to hang out with; beautiful surroundings and lots of other fun optional activities to choose from.

If this sounds like where you would like to be this winter, especially if it's freezing where you live and by the end of February you tend to be desperate for some sun, then join us. You're gonna think you died and went to heaven, that's how great this retreat is going to be.

The property: We have rented out the entire property for this retreat.  Read on about this magnificent place: Playa Loma Bonita is a breathtaking new development just 40 minutes south of Zihuatanejo, Mexico. The area is rich in natural beauty, offering unique experiences and fun activities. The property boasts magnificent views, a mile long stretch of gorgeous beach, privacy, numerous water sports and activities, and close proximity to the excellent local seafood restaurants of La Barrita.   Read more
