Feb. Raising Your Vibration, and Oct./Nov. Dia de Los Muertos San Miguel de Allende, Mexico

It’s for good reason that Travel & Leisure named San Miguel de Allende its 2017, 2018, 2020 and 2021 #1 city in the world. This is an enchanting destination that feels, in the best of ways, frozen in time. And UNESCO, having conferred upon San Miguel its status as a protected World Heritage Site, has preserved its magic for future generations to enjoy.

Considered by many to be the cultural and artistic capital of Mexico, it is the quality of light in this high-desert oasis, along with its beautiful Tuscan colors, its historical colonial architecture, its cobble-stone streets, its over-flowing bougainvilleas, and its exceedingly warm locals that begin to define its world-renowned appeal.

For decades x-pats from the Americas and Europe have been drawn to the vibrancy, tranquility, grand flavors and ease-fullness that penetrates the soul here. Come join Desiree and Andrew, along with other like-minded yogis, in their home for a Spring Break that is sure to warm your heart and nourish your body.

Extra-curricular activities include: enjoying creative and authentic Mexican cuisine, shopping in artisans markets, observing cultural events/weddings/parades/dances in the central square, visiting hot springs, going out on the town for live music and theater, horseback riding, hot air balloons, wine tasting, or just wandering the streets and discovering what unfolds.

Price: $465. Includes 20 hours of yoga and two catered meals including a dinner at Andrew and Desiree’s home.
