Yoga. Adventure. Exploration.

Each day you will be led by one of our instructors through a variety of yoga classes and styles.

All About the Puerto Rico Retreat

As you fly across the Atlantic, leave whatever is not serving you behind and embark on both an adventure and retreat in Puerto Rico.

An included shuttle service will take you on the hour-long drive through the diverse country landscapes brings you to our retreat center on the side of a mountain in the town of Ciales.

Here you will overlook the lush rainforest boasting a choir of tropical birds chirping a welcome song just for you. On the retreat grounds, we will explore hiking trails that take us down to the river, gardens for fresh veggies, yoga as the sun rises, and family-style dinners at night.

We will spend part of our days exploring hidden gems like local beaches, ancient hieroglyphics, and astounding caves.

Puerto Rico is the perfect weekend getaway from the United States, and as a U.S. territory, it doesn't require a passport to travel.

We do ask that guests limit themselves to a carry-on bag and a personal item so that we have enough room in our airport transfer vans.

 

A full packing list will be sent after booking, but the clothes will be light.

What Makes This Retreat Special?

This retreat gives women a chance to break free from routine and set out on an adventure.

There will be time for connection and self-exploration in the evenings, island exploration through the day, and also time to retreat. You will have some of the best views in the world as you deepen your yoga practice, no matter your yoga experience level.

Like yin and yang, we balance reprieve with adventure in order to restore and recharge your mind, body, and soul.

We recommend this retreat for women who like to go off the beaten path, get their hands dirty, and like challenge their bodies.

We will experience mild to moderate hiking conditions while together in Puerto Rico.

Just A Few Of The Benefits...

Drop out of "normal life" for a period.

The ideal place to unplug, slow down that fast pace and get back in touch with nature.

Rediscover yourself after too long feeling disconnected.

Become stronger mentally and find inner peace.

You have the option of bringing your own yoga mat or we can provide one for you.
  • Travel Insurance Suggestions
    While we do our best to hold our retreats rain or shine in order to offer guests the full experience of Earth's elements, we must always put safety first. With that being said, we do recommend travel insurance in the event of dangerous weather. We aim to notify our guests of cancellations at least four days in advance but also recognize that in Florida, severe weather can develop more quickly. Yoga Elements Retreats will refund 100% of what you have paid to us directly and Book Retreats will give you a voucher or refund of the amount that you have paid to them to use on any other retreat in the event that we cancel.
