Perched amidst majestically swaying palm trees, the Tailwind Jungle Lodge is a sustainable jungle lodge, yoga retreat center and adventure company on the Mexican Pacific. Our motto? Enjoy life! Between yoga, kayaking, hiking, SUP, yoga and relaxing in the hammock, it's definitely easy to do just that.
The Tailwind Jungle Lodge was founded by an adventurous American family in 2007. The lodge's creatively designed, tree-house like bungalows, palapas and casitas are nestled amidst 5 acres of truly stunning jungle ridges descending to breathtaking beaches of white sand. The lodge is located on a spectacular coastline, just north of the charming town of San Pancho (official name, San Francisco) in the state of Nayarit, Mexico.

Lauren Leduc, E-RYT200
A deep longing to heal, nurture, and love myself guided me to yoga in 2001. In the depths my greatest darkness, I found that this strange practice of moving and breathing illuminated something within me that I had so desperately needed: a seed of awakening, consciousness, and divine love. That was just the start. For years, I dipped my toes into the waters of yoga, never quite committing to the practice, but always knowing it had a special place inside me. Several years later, in 2011, after health problems and deep depression, I felt supported and motivated to make some major changes in my life and to dive into this healing practice head first. I kept coming back to the mat, a little stronger each time.
In 2013, I made one of the best decisions of my life and signed up for Yoga Teacher Training through Frog Lotus Yoga to study under the amazing guidance of Jennifer Yarro and Jennilee Toner in the beautiful rainforest of Costa Rica. The experience was expansive, authentic, and brought me to a new level of spiritual awakening. This gave me such a strong foundation, not only in anatomy, asana, philosophy, sequencing, safety, etc, but the foundation of my true self: a woman who now sees her bright, fiery light and wants to share it with others.
Since then, I've taught over 1600 hours of yoga, and have developed a strong passion for making yoga available to EVERYONE regardless of income-level. This led me to founding Pop-Up Yoga KC, an outdoor donation-based yoga program, and Karma Tribe Yoga, a nonprofit donation-based yoga studio in Kansas City's Crossroads Arts district.
My aim is to provide a practice that is challenging, stress-relieving, focused, hands-on, playful, and safe. Most importantly, through my guidance of the physical practice of yoga, I want to help you find your true self. I want you to feel strong, powerful, spacious, and beautiful. I want to guide you into healing the pain of your past, the worries of your future, and to find this amazing space we call NOW. I want you to know you are capable of the impossible. I want you to find the fiery light inside of you waiting to burst forth. I want us to cultivate so much love, compassion, and peace, that we can’t help but share it with the world. Let’s raise the collective vibration, one breath at a time.

My trip exceeded all expectations! My group was wonderful and the accommodations were perfect for a week of soul-searching and adventure. The food was incredible and location unreal. I would definitely book at Tailwind again.
Really, a perfect retreat. The only negatives would be cost of car transport to and from the Lodge and San Pancho. Otherwise, ever single element of the trip was beyond expectations.
This was one of the best experiences of my life. Our hosts at Tailwind were beautiful souls who made every day better than the last.
An amazing adventure in the jungle! The facilities were unique, the food was incredible, and the hostess's were the most inspiring, kind women! Tamara was very gracious, and always available for any requests or concerns. Jungle Judy's vitality is amazing!
We left the concrete jungle in favour of the Mexican jungle with 10 others to stay at the Tailwind Lodge in San Pancho/San Fransisco for 6 days of yoga, incredible food, sun and unforgettable scenery. We had an open-air room in the jungle, camping in style. Our Chefs were amazing preparing the healthiest and tastiest Mexican food accommodating our vegans in the group. Our yoga platform was high up among the tree tops and looked out into the Pacific ocean. Our yoga sessions were set against the sound of waves and birds. During the week we enjoyed stand-up paddle boarding, hiking and kayaking in the ocean, as well as a trip into San Pancho and Sayulita. The 30 min hike to a beautiful and quiet private beach adds just the perfect amount of exercise and excitement. I highly recommend this retreat location and look forward to returning.
Had a great time. Would do again anytime.
