Spring Yoga Retreat at Haramara in Nayarit, Mexico with Karen Gamble and Marni Entrop

Join Marni Entrop and Karen Gamble for a Spring Retreat at the magical Haramara Retreat north of Puerto Vallarta, in 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. Our teachings will incorporate the ancient science of Ayurveda, Yoga tune-up therapy, yoga folklore and philosophy. There will be opportunity during the retreat to self reflect through yoga and meditation as well as igniting creativity through journaling, ocean gazing and Mexican Culture. The experience will serve as a beautiful opportunity to deepen the relationship with yourself.

We will offer a perfect blend of asana practices, meditation, self-inquiry, and free time. Additional experiences are offered with a fee. These include cooking classes, trekking and zip-lining, massage, bodywork and more.

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. Visit their photo gallery to see cabanas, setting, pool, and more.
