Via Yoga Offers Guests a Chance to Give Back to the Community

Guests who choose to partake in the Via Yoga retreat, taking place Jan. 15-21, 2011, will be able to get more out of the trip than just a yoga and surfing retreat in Sayulita, Mexico. Through a partnership with Costa Verde, Mexico’s first eco-minded school, guests will have the opportunity to work with local children through volunteering in recycling projects, beach clean-up efforts, gardening, and educational programs. But it won’t all be hard work and no play. “Along with two daily open-air yoga sessions and the opportunity to immerse themselves in the jungle ecology and energy of Sayulita, guests will be learning to surf and have the opportunity to go whale watching and snorkeling, which always sparks a profound feeling to the importance and interconnections of our environment,” says Via Yoga instructor Andrea Arriaga, who lives and works in Sayulita.
