Yoga and the Sea of Cortez


5 nights, 6 days of yoga, meditation, and ocean adventure at the stunning Casa Tara Retreat Center on Baja’s Golfo de California, the Sea of Cortez. Explore the 5 Elements in one of the world’s most beautiful natural landscapes. See what made Steinbeck fall in love, and why Jacques Cousteau famously named this ocean, “the world’s aquarium.”

Daily meditation and yoga will be interspersed with trips to swim with the migrating whale sharks and visit Isla Cerralvo, also known as Jacques Cousteau Island. Scroll down for details.

“…Let us go,” we said, “into the Sea of Cortez, realizing that we become forever a part of it. We shall take something away from it, but we shall leave something too.” And if we seem a small factor in a huge pattern, nevertheless it is of relative importance. None of it is important or all of it is.
- John Steinbeck. Log from the Sea of Cortez
