Retreat to a Mexican jungle paradise with a private beach for 8 days for our 'Back to the Source Retreat'. Where we will slip off the grid, with no wifi, luxurious open-aired cabanas, and sync into the healing nature surrounding you. Give yourself the gift of time and space to connect to your most authentic self. Heal, reset and connect to peace. Spend a week immersed in Yoga, intentional living, community, nature, letting go and healing in this life changing experience. Learn tools to assist you for the rest of your life.
Let go of your worries and responsibilities and connect to the core of life as we tap back into the natural elements. Fall asleep in your eco chic open-aired cabana to the sounds of waves crashing and arise to the sun glistening off the jungle leaves and flowers, listening to the tropical jungle birds.
Take a week to come back to your SELF with daily Chakra (energy center) Yoga, meditation for self-realization, element exploration, Yoga Nidra, and nature immersion. Fill your body with fresh local food created by amazing chefs and spend your free time relaxing at the pool, beach, join a local activity, or visit Sayulita or San Pancho.
Feel completely renewed and deeper connected to joy upon your return home.

The sleeping cabana experience is enhanced without electricity allowing the illumination of oil lamps and candles leaving behind the tedious demands of our electronic age. The cabanas are designed to create a simple and natural but elegant space which offers comfort and coziness with beautiful and architecturally original bathrooms open to the jungle but providing complete privacy. Scattered across the beautiful tropical hillside, each individual cabaña offers exceptional views of the ocean and jungle canopy. Each cabaña is situated to offer privacy and seclusion while still taking advantage of the spectacular views.
Welcome to the famous Haramara Retreat! Located in the breathtaking coastal Riviera Nayarit near the fishing village and surfing town of Sayulita, about 40 minutes from Puerto Vallarta. Nestled above Pacific Ocean on 12 private acres of tropical jungle with a private and pristine beach. Haramara (“Mother Sea”) is an exclusive and intimate seaside yoga resort offering sensual tropical harmony to every guest. The magnificent 360-degree view yoga pavilions, with their high thatched roofs and handcrafted hardwood floors, have been positioned to take advantage of the panoramic views of lush mountains, while taking advantage of the soothing ocean breezes. The open aired spa facility puts you back in touch with nature, as you are pampered body and spirit. There’s a beautiful infinity pool, looking over the pacific. There is also plenty of space to find little private places for reflection all around the property.

The program is filled with traditional Yoga, Meditation, restorative practices, ceremony, healing workshops and joy.

"Anna is such a wonderful & inspiring teacher & person. Her energy is so peaceful & inviting. I loved the morning & evening yoga sessions, which included guided meditation & in the evenings yoga Nidra. The sound healing session led by Paul was like nothing I’ve ever experienced & extremely powerful. I felt cleansed & healed afterwards. Truly amazing! Our group connected so easily & it was so nice getting to know new people. The hiking & scenic views at Yosemite Bug are great. The Cafe has delicious food & the staff are so friendly. The spa tub & sauna were extremely relaxing after yoga & hiking. We went to Yosemite National Park one day & its spectacular! I’m looking forward to returning in the springtime."

"We had a wonderful time! The Yoga and meditation was the best I've ever experienced! Anna's extensive training and experiences shine through her routines and practices. She had many different poses and techniques that were used. Also, her things to do that were optional were also fun! I've done several retreats with Anna and always find them the best ever! Love her soothing voice and gentle, loving spirit! Anyone thinking of coming - join the next one! You will experience a retreat of a lifetime!"

Anna creates a warm, inviting retreat for you to not only get what you want, but what you need. I found the opportunity to relax and rediscover myself, while others had a safe place to work through their concerns or indulge in exercise and exploration. The facilities are relaxed and enjoyable and the food and spa were fantastic

Anna is warm, welcoming, approachable and fun. She set a friendly and easy-going tone for our group and her positive reflections were welcomed. The combination of asana, restorative and meditation was nicely balanced. The Yosemite Bug is so cute and perfect for a yoga retreat. The restaurant at the resort is outstanding: the food, the service, the setting.
