Our New Year Retreat at the exotic Xinalani Eco-Resort is the perfect place to set your intentions for 2019. Begin your year in vibrant health, rejuvenation, yoga and fitness, with up to 4 yoga, fitness and wellness classes daily — on a private luxurious beach in Mexico! Take in the sun and sea, with surfing, horseback riding, paddle boards and kayaks amidst a gathering of multicultural, like-minded yogis. Relaxation, gratitude and inspiration await!

Flow of the Day


Wake to the rhythmic sound of waves and intricate chorus of tropical birds, and enjoy a cup of tea while overlooking the ocean. Stroll the beach or take a morning swim before heading up to the Jungle Studio for a morning of body, mind and soul replenishing. Join one or both back-to-back yoga classes: Gentle Flow Yoga with Nina Butler and Fitness with personal trainer Lisa Nielsen.


Free time to enjoy the sunshine and waves! 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 shaman-led temezcal, followed by a healing massage in the ocean-side spa. A delicious buffet lunch is served from 1:30 to 2:30, followed by plenty of time for a hammock siesta!


At sunset, reconvene for a Smart Abs class with Lisa, followed by a Vinyasa + Yin Yoga class with Nina. Following our sunset session is dinner on Xinalani’s 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.

You are met at the airport in Puerto Vallarta and whisked away to one of Exotic Yoga Retreats’ favorite spots: Xinalani, an intimate and secluded eco-resort accessible only by boat. It is highly acclaimed for its serenity, stunning yoga studio, delicious vegetarian cuisine and variety of accommodations — all with a view to the Pacific Ocean! Meals are based on locally grown produce, fresh fish and seafood and served in the spacious terrace dining room 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 cared for. Xinalani is truly a paradise for our Mexico New Year Yoga Retreat
