Yoga in Yelapa with Sarahjoy

Yoga has the power to transform us, to revive our expansiveness, grace, grounding and capacity for awe embodied. Yelapa has this same power.

​Enjoy the combination of a beautiful sacred space to practice yoga, immersion in tropical beauty and being part of village life. The combination of yoga, meditation, Ayurveda, pranayama, chanting, dharma talks, walking, hiking, ocean, river, tropical nature and being part of this Mexican village life affirms Yoga’s ultimate theme of Oneness.

​​Yelapa, reached only by boat, takes people back in time enhancing the feeling of “getting away from it all” and invites participants to remember the simple life.

​​Pura Vida Eco Retreat offers a sacred space deeply connected to nature for yogis to enjoy. Enjoy beautiful views of both the ocean and the jungle from the venue each day. Our jungle setting holds both expansive views with the wonderful sounds of the constant lap of the ocean and the sights and songs of tropical birds enjoying the trees surrounding the studio.

Ayurveda, pranayama, chanting, dharma talks, walking, hiking, ocean, river, tropical nature and being part of this Mexican village life affirms Yoga’s ultimate theme of Oneness.

We are traveling to a small village in Mexico, remotely arrived at by small boat taxi. Every aspect of the retreat center was created by the founder of Pura Vida. Each tile, each pillow, all of the supplies to build the center from nothing were transported to the village via such small taxis. Enormous commitment and labor have gone into the design of an extraordinary retreat center for our renewal and study. As such, we have refund and cancellation policies in place to respect the center, which is offering us exclusive use of their facility during our retreat.


Sarahjoy has been leading yoga and meditation retreats for more than 22 years. Her commitment to yogic study and to creating the rhythms of ashram-style learning and studying has deepened every year. Particularly as contemporary life has increased in tempo, stress, anxiety, and health challenges, Sarahjoy’s abiding vision for us to realize the yoga in all things – and to be able to sustain such a felt sense amidst what daily life brings – has expanded to include more teachings from the yogic texts, chanting practices, and Ayurveda. 

She is also adept at integrating the most relevant teachings from brain science and interpersonal neurobiology. 

“All life is relational. We begin in relationship. We live in relationship. We experience our disappointments and challenges in relationship. It is also in relationship that we have our greatest capacity for healing.”    – Sarahjoy
