Highlights

Enjoy daily yoga in Utopia's oceanfront studio, offers sweeping views of the beautiful Caribbean Sea in the heart of Tulum’s beach community. Rectangular in shape, props include mats, blankets, blocks, and straps as well as flat tennis balls and chairs if needed.

Every day includes balancing yoga practices appropriate for all levels of practitioners.  Breakfast and lunch are served on site at the retreat center and for dinner we will dine out enjoying the culture of Tulum.

You will have plenty of time on your mat for yoga and plenty of free time to explore, finally read that book you've been desiring or to just rest.  Included in your reservation is a 90-minute massage!

Optional excursions:

Optional excursions include stand-up paddle boarding in a cenote or in the Sian Ka'an Biosphere and a visit to a Mayan Sweat Lodge called a "Temescal".  A Temascal in Mexico is an ancient ritual that unifies the 4 elements in a process that includes aromatic herbal steam, created by the interaction of volcanic rocks with fresh water of the Caribbean. Afterwards, cool off in the underground rivers of Xcaret for a complete cleansing experience.

The retreat was fantastic! The teacher was awesome and nurturing, the yoga deck a perfect place to practice, beautiful view! Utopia is super low key, "rustic" , a great way to detox from the bustle of a big city life. Tulum is safe with lots of great restaurants, shopping and activities. Loved my experience.

I could not have asked for a better group of people, location, staff or ambassador. This was an overall amazing and life changing trip. All the staff were over the top helpful and attentive. The location was absolutely stunning. The massage was something I cannot even put into words, something I've never experienced before. The mud ceremony was a great close to our adventure and a memorable one at that! I cannot wait to book my next trip!!!

Experience of a life time, I couldn't think of a way to have made this trip any better. Teaching yoga on the beach in the beautiful yoga room was the perfect setting. The picturesque scenery and earth connection in the house was breath taking. The Shaman massage was unexplainably life changing. Friends and connections were made that will carry in my heart. Definitely coming back.

I loved my trip to Utopia with Natasha. I enjoyed so many aspects of the adventure. The Caribean Ocean was spectacular, the sound, smell and visuals were healing for my soul. I have new dear friends that shared the adventures. I loved the yoga practices with Natasha. She has a gift of bringing peaceful and calming spirits to those around her. I would encourage this experience for any level yoga lover.
