Flow of Day


Wake up to a stunning sea view and chorus of tropical birds as you sip tea or enjoy a coffee in quiet contemplation and breath-taking beauty. Stroll the beach, dive in the sea, then step into a magical morning of body, mind and soul rejuvenation in the Jungle Studio overlooking the ocean. All our Exotic Yoga programs are designed for mixed levels, offering modifications for beginners and greater levels of challenge for advanced students. We emphasize safety, awareness, intelligence—and the joie di vivre of yoga!


Free time to enjoy the sunshine!  Head out for sea-kayaking, stand-up paddle-boarding, surfing or horseback-riding. Trek into the forest to a hidden waterfall, take a Mexican cooking class or journey inward with a temazcal (sweat lodge) ritual, followed by a holistic massage… or just take a siesta in a hammock! A delicious buffet lunch is served from 1:30-2:30, followed by plenty of time for a siesta to the sound of the waves!


At sunset we reconvene for a deep and relaxing afternoon yoga practice watching the sun set set over the ocean below. Following our sunset session is an exquisite dinner on the ocean-view terrace, a three-course gourmet meal featuring inspired and traditional Mexican recipes, designed for the healthy lifestyle of a yogi. After dinner take a moonlit stroll on the beach, gather with friends around a bonfire or even try your feet at salsa!

Private Beach Eco Resort

Accessible only by boat, you will be met at the airport in Puerto Vallarta and taken by boat to the one of Exotic Yoga Retreat’s favorite retreat spots — Xinalani, an intimate and secluded seaside eco-resort highly acclaimed for it’s serenity, beautiful open-air accommodations, delicious vegetarian cuisine and stunning yoga studios. Accommodations are luxurious to the soul and magical in the setting amidst nature and sea. All rooms offer a view to the sea and a chorus of waves for deep, rhythmic sleep! Meals are based on locally grown produce, fresh fish and seafood, served in the spacious terrace dining area with spectacular views that overlook the jungle and the ocean. All dietary preferences are warmly catered to, and the friendly staff make sure that all guests are well taken care of. Xinalani is truly a paradise for our Mexico Yoga Retreat!

We will be 60 people from around the world - solo travelers, couples, friends and families! 


“I truly enjoyed our Exotic Yoga Christmas in Mexico. If you want a get away from traditional Christmas, this is the place to go! Great facility, friendly staff, good program choice, but I think what made this yoga retreat so special was Gayle’s attention and love to participants. This is not a retreat to just go and do yoga. This is a retreat to create life long memory.”


“That was the best week of my life! Thank you all for making this trip more than I could have expected. I miss you all and expect we can keep in touch. Better yet, reunite at a future Exotic Yoga Retreat!”


“Nothing but excellent things to say! I did the Mexico Christmas Retreat and it was beyond amazing. The people, the facility, the yoga…all incredible! This was my first yoga retreat, and I could not have been more pleased. Practicing yoga with like-minded, wonderful individuals was such a treat. I felt calm, relaxed, and connected with myself. If you are interested in doing a yoga retreat, or the thought of trying one has even popped into your mind, DO IT! You do not have to be an avid yogi to get something out of this experience. This retreat is far more than just yoga – but the yoga was and instructors were amazing!”
