When it comes to wellness activities, yoga is one of those that quickly come to our minds due to the increasingly number of people who practice this discipline and share its benefits for both body and soul. In Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit there’s an enormous variety of spaces and classes, for beginner to advanced, that offer this mental and physical discipline of Indian origin.

They include the following:

In Sayulita, Hotelito Los Sueños offers retreats and classes taught by internationally renowned teachers.

 The beachfront location of Villa Ananda in Punta de Mita makes this luxurious yoga center a worldwide favorite. Their day spa packages with aromatherapy and massages are the ideal complement.

In Puerto Vallarta, the Hotel San Trópico in Marina Vallarta also has its own yoga studio, with morning and evening classes. Davannayoga has several spaces, one offering a spectacular view of the bay from the hills of the city center.

The yoga classes offered by the public library, La Biblioteca Los Mangos, are very popular among the local community.

Surrounded by mountain and sea, the yoga space at Casitas Maraika, south of Puerto Vallarta, has no comparison. They organize, among other things, walks through the jungle from Boca de Tomatlán to the isolated tropical hotel. And for the best yoga with a paradisiacal view, consider Judith Roth’s Sky Temple in Yelapa.

“There are lots of reasons why we have advertised in Vallarta Lifestyles for several years. One of them is that they know pretty well their target, because they know who are their readers and they adapt as much as possible the content and material that is offered. For these reasons they have a growing number of readers which is very important for us. Another reason is that many people  —including us— think that the magazine has been as a serious publication since its beginnings. Historically, Vallarta Lifestyles has known how to capture the audience and has done it pretty well."

“When I first opened my gallery in 1986, my relationship with Vallarta Lifestyles started for the need of people to know me and, because it is one of the very few quality publications in the destination, I decided to advertise in it. There are clients that still remember me for the magazine, with whom I have had several years of relationship.”

“Among other things, Vallarta Lifestyles stands out for its strong presence throughout our destination, from five stars hotels to brand new condominiums, where they finally find the type of clients that we look for. For all of us is very important to be in print media to strengthen our advertising strategy and this magazine is essential to achieve it.”
