“Yoga, Meditation, Pranayama, Chi Kung, Self-Massage, Tai Chi”
Discover what diligent practice can give you
Yoga retreats to restore and heal you. Read Island is a family owned Eco centre where we have been hosting retreats for over 20 years. We believe in a strong practice starting at 7 am with pranayama, Qi Kung and meditation followed by a nourishing breakfast. After breakfast we have a 2 hour yoga practice followed by lunch on the deck with a gorgeous mountain view. Free time after lunch for rest, hiking, swimming or kayaking touring our very magical property. Later we have a qi king/ tai chi class and restorative yoga. After a dinner from local ingredients salmon, garden salad, new potatoes we learn shiatsu and acupressure neck massage.

La Manzanilla is a quiet little fishing village about 3 hours south of Puerta Vallarta on the west coast of Mexico. There are about 1,200 people in the village built along a 5 km firm, sand beach in Tenacatita Bay. The beaches on Tenacatita Bay are safe to swim There are some small coral pocket beaches close to the village with good snorkeling in clean, clear water. There are no large hotels or developments and some lovely walking in the area. There is a lovely laid back tranquility for a yoga holiday or retreat.
