Mexico Vacation: Stretch That Body Out

Yoga in Puerto Vallarta

Yoga has become very popular in the United States, Canada and Mexico. This continent may love its variety of food, spices and special drinks but health has been on an uptrend in the past couple decades, with Yoga being in the forefront.

Though there are several others, Davannayoga in el Centro is one of the oldest yoga schools in Puerto Vallarta. A variety of yoga classes are also available at many of the gyms in Puerto Vallarta. Davannayoga is a classic school, teaching vinyasa, hatha yago, morning yoga, meditation, restorative yoga and dharma yoga.

Yoga Vallarta is another very reputable studio and offers Pilates, Ashtanga, Tai Chi, as well. They also have meditation, acupuncture, chiropractic and a dance studio. Yoga Vallarta is conveniently located in Old Town.

Yoga retreats have become very popular in the Puerto Vallarta area and you can find high quality locations, with well trained instructors, and amazing amenities up and down the coast from Sayulita to Yelapa. Spas such as Xinalani, located just short of Yelapa, a short boat ride away, attract students, as well as yoga instructors looking for escape from normal routine and a chance to learn from others. It’s the most exciting relaxing environment you could possibly find. Weeklong stays might include courses in plant medicine, healing, sound bathing, and dance. Most retreats like Xinalani offer a full bar, vegan and non-vegan menus, attention to gluten, dairy and nut-free diets. Girlfriend trips are very popular and many places have special programs for families, though children under the age of five and usually not accepted. An abundance of programs, custom and standard, are available.

The benefits of yoga are boundless. Yoga will increase your flexibility and help with protection from injury, regardless of age. The respiratory system, as well as your cardio and circulatory health will achieve major improvements. Losing weight seems to magically occur with increased muscle strength and tone. We have found that our yoga practice makes us think about what we put in our mouth; healthy eating habits come naturally. Energy and vitality become the new normal, and getting up in the morning is no longer creaky and painful, but pleasant and refreshing. Keeping a balanced metabolism for both young and old is a major achievable goal with yoga and will also improve the athletic ability of those so inclined.

Puerto Vallarta offers all levels of yoga and what better place to partake and practice than a spa in paradise with incredible views, bonuses, and affordability.

Que es cómo es.
