One of my favorite places in the world is a town called Mazunte in Mexico. This is a little hippy coastal town in the Oaxaca province. I went three years in a row to do Yoga and a few 10 day silent retreats at Hridaya yoga. An unique center that teaches the essence of Yoga, it is very profound and it is not taught like this by many other yoga schools.

Hridaya focuses its teachings on the spiritual heart. During all the classes they use inquiry while staying long in the poses / Asanas. They do different courses and you can join with a low budget, since all prices are very reasonable. The teachings are very deep and the yoga is more a moving and static meditation. After the 24 day Yoga module 1 you could join them for a 10 day silent retreat. Something one has to put on their bucket list if you feel ready for it. 

Combine this beautiful Yoga course and silent retreat with the beautiful blue ocean and white sandy beaches of Mazunte and you have the most perfect combination. We absolutely love Mazunte, it is very peaceful and you can live here with a low budget. 

Best time to visit

The best time to go is from October to March which is the dry season. Our personal favorite time is October which is the end of the Rainy season. Not many tourist arrive yet so it is super quiet. Click here for more average weather information in Mazunte.
