Sayulita has become a hub for yoga on the Mexican west coast. The dual mission of Yoga Los Sueños is to offer full-time, year round regular yoga classes and to serve as a yoga retreat centre. The expansion of Hotelito Los Sueños was conducted with these goals in mind. The yoga studio was designed and built with care and attention for the yoga practitioner. Everything from the cushioned flooring to high quality mats to the great surround sound was considered. Our hope is to attract yogis from all over North America and Mexico to Sayulita.

These extremely accessible classes are an ideal choice for anyone looking to develop a practice of conscious, mindful movement with some support—from seniors to pregnant women to world-class athletes. Each class will be a different experience based on your teacher’s creative choice and background to bring you to new depths and your edge on that particular day. Props and modifications offered for proper alignment and ease in the postures.
Vinyasa Flow 2
This class works at a moderate pace in the vinyasa style of connecting movement and breath. Expect inventive and thoughtful sequences of sun salutations,twists, balances, back bending and inversions.

Suggested modifications will accommodate; the yoga newbie, the seasoned yogi to that intense athlete.

This class will have you on the floor most of the time, using as many props needed to create as little effort while holding poses. Poses are held for 2-5 minutes allowing joints and fascia to release. This class will complement your Vinyasa practice and will open and release areas in need of more stretching.
