Mexico Yoga Retreat with the MAC – December 2023

Join your favorite MAC yoga instructors Michael Salmon & Kimmie Brunke at the beautiful Xinalani resort in Quimixto, Mexico for 7 nights/8 days of yoga. You will enjoy two daily yoga sessions (one in the morning and one in the afternoon or closer to evening), fun outdoor activities and time to relax at the pristine and private beach. All levels of yoga practitioners are welcome.

About the resort:
Xinalani is one of the top eco-friendly yoga resorts in Mexico, located 12 miles south of Puerto Vallarta and tucked away in a private setting accessible by boat. All rooms have ocean views and range from open air palapas to deluxe rooms or suites with AC. Guests enjoy top-class and locally sourced chef prepared meals accommodating all dietary needs and preferences.

In addition to twice daily yoga instruction, your trip includes lodging, transfers upon arrival and departure (private car & boat) and all meals. Also included are carefully selected private excursions; a hike with a local guide exploring the beautiful and natural setting of the area, a boat and snorkeling cruise to take in the stunning coastline and a traditional cacao ceremony with a local shaman. An additional daily yoga session offered by the resort is also included.
Other optional activities at the resort include spa treatments, surf and SUP lessons, swimming with the dolphins, cooking classes with a local chef, shaman sessions, private/semi-private yoga sessions and more (not included in tour price).

About Your Instructors:

Mike Salmon specializes not only in the Spanish language, but also in tailoring a yoga practice to the needs of the individual helping to build a sense of confidence and joy in the student.
His goal for the journey is for you to deepen and perfect your practice through teacher-led classes and workshop style instruction on the beach or in one of seven different Yoga spaces of the resort.

Kimmie Brunke’s yoga styles vary from slow and intentional, with long-supported holds using props, to sessions that encompass both alignment and creative flow. She incorporates both Western & Eastern anatomy and philosophical ideas into every class to deepen the practitioner’s experience. Through mindful movement and encouraging self-reflection, she guides her multi-leveled students toward achieving an understanding of purnatva – that wholeness, inner strength, harmony and fulfillment can be found within themselves.
