Mindful Yoga at Mayan Ruins/ Beach

Playa del Carmen, Mexico

Experience hosted by Sabine

60 mins
Up to 10 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

We will gather in-front of these magical Mayan ruins, located in Playacar, a suburb of Playa del Carmen. Most people just walk by and don't even notice this unique space as it is a bit tucked away from the main street.

We will have two options: we can practice on the grass in front of the ruins (simply unique atmosphere) surrounded by beautiful jungle or we can walk down to the beach, only a few meters away.

We will start with a Mindfulness Meditation to 'center us' into this unique open space, surrounded by nature.

We focus on gentle stretching and gentle slow Vinyasa, Yin & Hatha poses allowing the body, breath and mind to fully connect.

Bringing mindfulness into your Yoga practice brings our awareness and focus to what is happening in the very moment. Mindfulness is being awake. Mindfulness is clarity. Bringing awareness to your body and how it moves in a Yoga pose can have an immediate affect on your mental and emotional state.
Yoga is meant to be practiced in nature and there is no better place than outdoors in nature or on the beach. Mindful Yoga can help in managing tension, staying focused and in living a more balanced life.

Class duration: about 1hr 15min
Other things to note
The Xaman-Ha Ruins are located in Playacar phase1. You can arrive by bike or taxi via the gate of Playacar phase1 or 2. Or simple walk along the beach (300 meters from the ferry station).

Hi, my name is Sabine!
Thank you for finding my offering!

I have been practicing Yoga for twenty years and followed my passion for teaching over three years ago. I swapped my laptop and corporate life for a Yoga teacher lifestyle and would love to share my passion with you.

I focus on Mindful Yoga - gentle Yoga and suitable for all levels - incorporating mindfulness meditation and lots of energetic cues allowing your body and mind to fully soak up this unique space and energy.

The space where we will gather is a hidden spot in Playacar, surrounded by this amazing jungle, that most tourists just miss.

Where you'll be

MEETING POINT: Cunaro de Piedra (pls put in google maps) / corner Bahia del Espiritu Santo. Playacar/ Phase 1. From here we just cross the street to set up in front of the Xaman-Ha ruins. (or walk down to the beach for the 8am class).

The site of the Mayan ruins of Xaman-Ha is a very magical space, historically and energetically. From here the canoes of Mayan pilgrims to the sanctuaries of the goddess of fertility, Ixchel, to Cozumel departed.

Sabine will take you to a magical place not only physically but spiritually. Yoga amongst Mayan ruins, birds chirping, the sound of the waves breaking in the distance, and a soft breeze will add to your experience with Sabine. She has a kind sensitive soul that will influence your energy.

This was a beautiful, grounding class that really gave me a wonderful mental reset. Physically it was a relaxing practice -- just what I needed. I loved feeling like I was deep in the jungle, just a few minutes from hectic Playa del Carmen!

Our Yoga session with Sabine was awesome! Her expertise and her calming voice made the experience exceptional. And of course the location is beautiful. Taking a stroll at the beach after the Yoga was magical. I can highly recommend this experience.
