Taking Care of Yourself
Everything for Health
We all need wild places to regenerate our souls. We gently feel the subtle change in our spirit as we are immersed in the luxury of nature—a place, unspoiled by the persistent background hum of modernity. By the end of a week’s stay, you’ll settle into the pace of pure nature—a pace where the best moments are spent watching the pelicans fly in formation over the sea, you fill your lungs with fresh ocean air during yoga, get dusty exploring the local ecosystem and be inspired by more stars than you could ever imagine filling the night sky. Playa Viva is a place to experience and be experienced.
We are dedicated to living systems, vibrant communities and creating a legacy that makes all guests feel proud about their footprint on the environment. As part of a healthy environment, we engage in our personal path to wellness.
When we feel healthy and well, we are better able to serve our planet and ourselves. Please join us on the path to health and wellness at Playa Viva.
We offer yoga classes six (6) days a week on our beautiful oceanside yoga shala. Move through your sun salutations while breathing ocean air and listening to the sound of waves crashing gently on the shore.
Your holistic host will craft a program that is just right for you, whether you are a beginner or have your own dedicated practice. Special classes can be arranged for couples or kids. Yoga workshops are offered throughout the year, so feel free to join any of these Mexico yoga retreats.
When it comes to relaxing and pampering yourself, what could be better than a massage right on the beach? Playa Viva is always staffed with a masseuse, some of whom can provide additional spa services such as facials and specialty scrubs using locally harvested materials.
Settle into one of our beachside palapas and relax to the sound of the ocean as the scent of coconut oil permeates the air and you achieve nirvana. Services vary based on provider, so make sure to inquire about the spa menu when you arrive. Prices for massage are $110 for 60 minutes, $130 for 75 minutes, $150 for 90 minutes and $190 for 120 minutes.
The holistic host is a special role at Playa Viva. Your holistic host is your guide to optimizing your Playa Viva experience. As the role title describes, they are usually the first person to welcome you; they will show you around and be available to answer all your questions (or point you to the right person who can), and they will join you at meals and make sure you are integrated into the community of guests as well as introduce you to the wider community of team members, all available to make sure you get the most out of your stay.
The holistic host will lead morning yoga, and you can book additional yoga sessions with them (for an extra fee). They are also available after yoga and before dinner for massage and other spa treatments. Click below to see who will be the holistic host during your stay.
