A Note from Whakapaingia

Whakapaingia Luke YogaEscape the ordinary and find a way to balance everything, playfully! We will be exploring the past and present of the jewel that is the Mayan Rivera and dive into the surreal world of the cenotes.  We’ll balance the discovery of the local culture through food, interaction and local treasures alongside awakening practices that add in the mind-heart-body connection.

Whakapaingia will lead you in a strong and calming playful vinyasa flow every morning, ensuring you stretch your body and your mind. And whether on a free day or a big adventure out, evening practices will explore balance with the playful integration of acrobatic yoga and Thai massage.  You will explore balance in fun weightless inversions and arm balances and float through this warm sunshine, warm heart and warm culture retreat.

The fun of acro-inducing laughter and gravity-freedom set the tone for a week that infuses your mind, body and spirit with the magic combination of great yoga, great food and the great culture of the Mayan Rivera.
