March 7-14, 2020

Join Alex Mathisen and SoulSpark Journeys for an unforgettable yoga adventure in paradise. With all the details set in place, you simply need to book your flight! We will celebrate the simplicity, beauty, and magic of life in Xinalani all week long. Rejuvenate your body and mind with invigorating and nourishing yoga practices. You will return home with a new perspective on life both on and off your mat.


Only accessible by boat, Xinalani is an elegant, eco-chic retreat set amongst ten acres of splendid unspoiled jungle on the southern shore of Banderas Bay, just south of Puerto Vallarta. Xinalani offers private pristine sand beaches, seclusion, and a chance to escape from the world. Breath-taking ocean-front rooms, four inspiring yoga studios, on-site spa and local hand crafted food await you. Our retreat is deigned to recharge the body and mind. Start each day with an invigorating flow class designed to explore your edges, deepen your practice and try something new. Late afternoon practices will nourish the body and mind through gentle yoga, meditation and restorative poses.  The day is yours to spend as you wish – relax in a hammock, take a dip in the ocean, snorkel, kayak, stand up paddleboard…the list is endless. Enjoy magnificent ocean views and relax with the sound of the waves as the chefs serve you gourmet healthy style meals using local grown produce and fresh fish and seafood. Vegan and gluten free options are available upon request.
