Late-Winter Yoga Retreat in Sayulita, Mexico with MJ Daniels and Anne Phyfe Palmer


Join MJ Daniels and Anne Phyfe Palmer for a Late-Winter Retreat at the magical Haramara Retreat in Sayulita, Nayarit, Mexico. Haramara means “Mother Sea” in the native Huichol Indian language. This retreat offers the atmosphere for you to feel your connection to the earth, to the sea, and to yourself and experience relaxation, renewal, and restoration.

At Haramara you will find yourself nestled in tropical jungle vegetation with vistas that soothe the soul. Local artisan-designed cabanas are electricity-free, inviting us into a deep connection with nature’s rhythms and our own subtle body. Beach access and a stunning infinity pool allow you to enjoy sun, water, and the tropical climate.

Our yoga practices will focus on mindfulness and awareness of the energetic qualities of our being with a focus on the Chakra system, a mapping of the human that draws from ancient Indian yogic teachings. Each instructor will bring unique qualities and teachings to our sessions together, creating a fabric of presence. Take this opportunity for yourself to unplug and take your yoga practice to new depths. Come home to yourself in the special magic of Haramara.
