Hot Yoga Christmas Retreat 2020
Puerto Morelos (Cancun) – Mexico
Sunday, Dec 20 – Saturday, Dec 26 2020
7 days / 6 nights
This Christmas, join fellow Yoga lovers from around the world for an unforgettable 7 days/ 6 nights Yoga holiday at the stunning Casa Om in Puerto Morelos on our 11th Retreat there. Escape the cold and get hot in the heated yoga room, get toned during Pilates and Vinyasa classes, relax during Yin classes at the beach or by the pool. And celebrate the festive season in style!
Puerto Morelos is a laid back fishing village just 20 minutes south of busy Cancun. What visitors love about ‘Puerto’ are lower prices and a slower pace of life than its larger, busier neighbours like Cancun or Playa del Carmen. It’s the perfect spot for relaxation – a place to get away from it all and experience the simple Caribbean life, while still being centrally located to the surrounding attractions of the Riviera Maya. There are some fantastic restaurants and bars as well and the beach is just stunning.
The beach with beach bar in front of our Retreat Centre
We have planned a fantastic week with plenty of Hot Yoga classes, Pilates /Vinyasa and Yin Classes, Posture Clinics, Intermediate classes and more. We offer an average of 20 classes a week (see below in the the whats included section) with the focus on Hot Yoga, however we have realized over the past years that many guests do also like to try and/or are practicing other styles of yoga so we have just added more classes in Pilates /Yin and Vinyasa Yoga. Some of these classes will also be held at the beach. All hot yoga classes are held in a heated room with mirrors. Rarely does a guest attend all classes and workshops during the week and that´s absolutely fine. We offer so many classes that you can choose which ones you like most. Its your holiday ! A Christmas Celebration Menu, cocktail nights, and a half day excursion (see below in the whats included section) are all part of the week as well.
Please note, this is not a religious retreat. We just happen to do it during the Christmas season and as usual welcome everyone one, no matter what religion, ethical background or nationality.
Our Yoga room in the villa – equipped with heaters, mirrors and fans. All mats and towels are included
Casa Om is situated right across of one of the most beautiful beaches at the Riviera Maya, with crystal clear waters and no waves, perfect for swimming. Just how you would imagine the Caribbean at its best. We have been running 11 retreats here and are every time excited to be coming back to this premier Hot Yoga Retreat Centre. Casa Om boasts a private swimming pool, rooftop deck with stunning ocean views (where we will be having our meals), a fully equipped and heated yoga room, ample space for relaxation and some turtles as well.
Most classes will be held in the heated Yoga studio right in the villa so no need to walk anywhere with the exception of a couple outside classes on the beach overlooking the ocean. (1min. walk away) An experience not to be missed.
All rooms in the villa are beautifully decorated in Balinese style and feature aircon, mini fridge, own en-suite bathroom, ceiling fans, mosquito nets over each bed and organic toiletries. Further – yoga clothes will be washed once a day which is also included. There is also unlimited fresh drinking water available throughout the villa. The villa is a short 5-10 minutes walk from the centre of Puerto Morelos with its shops, supermarkets, bank, restaurants and bars.
Example of the cozy rooms at Casa Om (shared option – 2 single beds)
