Availability is limited. Please contact the Studio for details.

Mar de Jade, a yoga and wellness retreat centre for 30 years is located on the small bay of Chacala in the state of Nayarit on the Pacific coast of Mexico, 90 minutes north of Puerto Vallarta. The Centre is nestled between tropical jungle and a pristine beach, protected from open ocean currents. It offers a relaxing and inspiring environment near a peaceful fishing village.

Here the traditional culture and foods and the emerging influence of North American visitors quietly interact, where the sounds of the morning are roosters crowing, birds calling and waves rolling up the beach.

* The retreat begins Saturday, February 17 at 5:30pm.

Mar de Jade
Our meals are sourced from Mar de Jade’s own organic garden. The yoga platform and accommodation offer views of the glorious ever-changing ocean and lush gardens. Participants have access to spa treatments, swimming pools and jacuzzi, lounge and beach areas (and free wifi).

MONICA VOSS has been a student and teacher of yoga for 40 years. In addition to co-owning and teaching at Esther Myers Yoga Studio in Toronto, Canada, Monica conducts workshops, retreats and teacher training internationally.
