Teacher Bios

Venue

Mar de Jade has been home to hundreds of retreats over the past 35 years. The resort has a supportive, warm feel, allowing participants to rest, feel at ease and enjoy the benefits that come from being on a retreat. You will have access to four gorgeous yoga spaces, all with hardwood floors, ocean views and full of lovely, natural light.

Take a dip in the swimming pool, wading pool, jacuzzi or wander the paths lining their tropical hotel grounds. Take a walk down Chacala beach, one of the most beautiful, tranquil beaches on the lush Riviera Nayarit coastline or visit the small, charming Mexican fishing village right next door.

Mar de Jade, snuggled between jungle and ocean, is far more than your average wellness resort. Founder Dr. Laura del Valle came to Chacala over thirty years ago to bring healthcare to the local community, and the home she built for her family and visiting medical students slowly evolved into the Mar de Jade we see today. Now offering a hotel, bar, pool, full treatment spa, stunning studio spaces, and excursions and activities, Mar de Jade retains its intimate family feel and community connection.

Three generations of del Valles now call the resort home, and the medical clinic established by Laura in the 80’s has evolved into MDJ Community Projects, a non-profit running local education and health programs and an organic farm that produces most of the tasty fare enjoyed by resort guests. This non-profit gets its funding from guests like you, so when you’re kicked back on the beach or sweating it out in the studio, you can feel good both in body and in mind. Mar de Jade is a resort of rare beauty with heart and soul to match. What better place to host a yoga retreat?

Food

Three times a day, Mar de Jade’s talented chefs prepare gorgeous buffet meals using ingredients from the resort’s organic farm. Traditional Mexican cuisine inspired dishes incorporate a variety of healthy vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, pescatarian, and poultry options, and the chefs are happy to tailor to specific dietary needs or allergies. Sorry carnivores but red meat is never served! Between meals, you’ll have access to a snack bar stocked with fresh fruit, coffee, tea, bread, and delicacies like homemade organic peanut butter and marmalade. Stations throughout the grounds provide purified fresh water to keep you hydrated between practice sessions!

Accommodations

Mar de Jade offers accommodation to suit an array of styles and budgets. Choose to look out over the Pacific, or into the lush green of the forest canopy.  Sleep the whole family in multibed apartments, share a room with a friend, cozy up with a loved one, or take some time and space all to yourself. No matter your choice, your room will come with unique and tasteful décor, exposed wood finishes, and plenty of natural lighting. Rooms at Mar de Jade are sanctuaries within a sanctuary: places to unwind, reflect, and recharge.

Important: If you would like to attend the retreat and stay off-site, Mar de Jade charges a $75/day fee for meals and use of amenities. You must pay this fee before registration is complete.

How To Get There

Mar de Jade is a 90 minute drive north of Puerto Vallarta International Airport on Highway 200. This distance can be covered via rental car or bus, but the resort recommends taking a taxi and is happy to arrange one for you.
