Yoga Among Friends

Yoga Retreat in Baja, Mexico
w/ Laura Jane Mellencamp
February 17 – 24, 2018


Join Laura Jane and fellow like-minded friends for a small, intimate yoga retreat to this luxurious eco-retreat center, Prana del Mar, in Baja, Mexico. Built in harmony with the raw beauty of the Pacific coast amongst soaring mountains, healing ocean, and desert calm, this region is a natural oasis that deeply amplifies the effects of your yoga and meditation practice. It’s a time to nourish a deeper understanding of yourself!


A half hour from Cabo San Lucas, this exceptional oceanfront retreat location is ‘off the grid’ and unrivaled in their cuisine, service, and totally blissed-out location. After centering yourself in your morning yoga practice, spend the day walking barefoot on miles of stunning beaches, catching waves at one of the nearby surf breaks, riding horseback along the coast, paddling and snorkeling in the Sea of Cortez, or lounging in the swimming pool. Watch the sun set into the Pacific as you dine on fresh, delicious Mexican and international cuisine, sip the best margaritas while laughing with friends new and old. Then admire the starfilled sky as you wander back to your suite to sink into a plush pillow-top bed, lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves breaking on the beach.


Using the practice of meditation and the depth of Patanjali’s yoga sutras, Laura Jane has designed this week to support you in finding tools to cultivate greater awareness towards self-healing and transformation. The retreat includes storytelling, chanting, asana, and meditation to truly bring the tools of yoga into your daily life.


Yoga classes will blend the disciplines of various styles of Hatha yoga with the mindfulness of meditation in this like-minded community. They will cover the fundamental principles underlying the therapeutic application of yoga and how to incorporate these principles into your practice. Work to dissolve old blockages, unravel samskaras, and create new pathways to vibrant health and happiness. The end result will be one of the most incredible, unforgettable yoga experiences you will ever have.


It is perfect for all levels of practitioners, yoga teachers, and bodywork therapists.


Not only will you enjoy the rejuvenating daily yoga sessions, there will be plenty of free-time for exploring and experiencing the beauty of Prana del Mar and Cabo, Mexico.
