Yoga Retreat at Haramara in Nayarit, Mexico with MJ Daniels and Leisha Davis
Slowing down, nourishing ourselves, and connecting to the Divine within.
Join MJ Daniels and Leisha Davis for a week at the beautiful Haramara Retreat, north of Puerto Vallarta, in Nayarit, Mexico. We will focus daily on personal inquiry through the Yoga Sutras and practice twice daily: mantra, asana, pranayama and meditation. All of these practices are tools to help us navigate and guide our way to the Divine within.
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 the sun, water, and the tropical climate.
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.

“I booked my stay early this year before the quarantines, and was so thrilled to realize that everything at Haramara is open air, so it is the ideal place to be. I could do yoga outdoors at their gorgeous yoga shalas, and then relax at the beach or by the pool. I have never stayed at a resort or retreat where everyone, from the cleaning and landscaping staff to the chefs and waiters, paid such exquisite attention to detail and just generally went the extra mile at all times. As a vegan, I am accustomed to traveling where I ‘make do’ and rarely eat well; the food was consistently absolutely sublime, truly on par with the best high-end vegan restaurants in the Bay Area. (My partner is an omnivore, and was also thrilled with every meal.)” – September 2020 Guest
“I am home from an amazing week at Haramara! I cannot thank you enough! It was absolutely amazing in every way! I absolutely LOVE Sajeela and the whole entire staff was absolutely amazing!! As far as Covid was concerned I didn’t feel it in any way showed up on our retreat! People felt very safe in Haramara and no one mentioned anything to me otherwise.” – October 2020 Yoga Retreat Host
