      Hatha Yoga and Self-enquiry together

    Hridaya Yoga Center in Mazunte offers the most beautiful Hatha Yoga classes for those who want to approach Yoga as a Spiritual Path. During the Hridaya Yoga practice you will connect with your most inner being, finding the silence of the Heart while you enquire on the nature of the Self, finding the perfect balance between effort and relaxation. You will learn to identify the different energy centers (chakras) that are activated by each asana, and you will be introduced to various methods of meditation that will deepen your practice in a subtle but profound way.

      Complete Transformation

    Hridaya is one of those special places that will stay with you for the rest of your journey. It is such a beautiful place with the most pure, gentle creatures you will ever come across. The teachings are filled with such deep love and humility it overtakes you. I fell in love with this place and it was very hard to leave. Sometimes coming home after exciting travels can be tough, but after Hridaya I felt more ready than I ever have in the past to go home. Two months now after arriving home and I still am experiencing Hridaya daily. I continue to meditate and feel the love and compassion all the time that I found at Hridaya even two months later. I recommend this place to everyone, no matter where you are in your path. Come with an open, beginner's mind. Do not accept the teachings, nor reject them, just observe. At the end you can make your own decision. I've gladly welcomed the lovely new additions to my life. Thank you so much Hridaya, I love you all and can't wait to return. <3 Art

      Please read this warning before you visit Hridaya Yoga in Mazunte, Mexico!

    I am disappointed to say that after doing much research and coming to this school with an open heart and the hopes to learn all I could about the yogic lifestyle, I realized that this school only cares about money and not about the safety of its students. The members of the school board provided no assistance for me or held themselves liable after my tent, which was on their campgrounds, was robbed off all my valuables because they have no locked gate or safes for belongings. They never forewarned anyone of the robberies that were occurring biweekly at gunpoint (despite my pleading that they post a warning on their web site) and didn't provide any safety for their students. It has become increasingly obvious to me that the reason this school is so heavily disliked by Mazunte's residents is because they truly only care about making money. As a result of coming here, not only is my whole life in shambles, but I have lost all desire to practice yoga or live meaningfully. Please reconsider before spending your money at this dishonest and greedy facility. If you do decide to visit, PLEASE do not bring any valuables as there is no place to keep them safe. Students have even been robbed while sitting for meditation.

Thank you!

We're glad you've joined our retreat community. See you around :)
