Looking to practice yoga in Puerto Vallarta? I live here and do yoga every week, so I’m sharing my favorite yoga studios and retreats in this guide.
Situated on the Bay of Banderas with the Sierra Madre mountains as the backdrop, Puerto Vallarta is the perfect place to connect with nature and yourself in these yoga classes immersed in nature.
Whether you’re living in PV and looking for a studio to practice regularly or coming here for a yoga retreat, these are the best places for Puerto Vallarta yoga.
Yoga classes in Puerto Vallarta
Terra Noble Art & Healing Center
There’s no doubt that Terra Noble has one of the most beautiful views in Puerto Vallarta. Although it’s a little more challenging to reach than other yoga studios in town, it is worth it. I recommend taking an Uber, as the walk up the hill would leave you with little energy!
Terra Noble hosts several events, including sunset yin yoga on Mondays (check the schedule here for the latest times).
I recommend practicing yoga at Terra Noble at least once during your time here, as the views from the top are just breathtaking, and the atmosphere is incredibly healing. They also do temazcal ceremonies here, an incredible and unique experience in Puerto Vallarta.
If you want to do yoga on the beach in Puerto Vallarta, Yoga Vallarta is one of the best options.
They offer beach yoga and meditation on the weekends and Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, as well as sunset beach yoga Mondays through Thursdays.
The classes take place next to Los Muertos Pier in the Romantic Zone. They provide beach mats, so you don’t need to worry about bringing your own, although a towel is recommended.
I’ve taken both morning and sunset classes, which are wonderful. They are led by English-speaking yoga instructors, and the class sizes are typically just 3-4 people, although it can be up to ten.
Once you join, you will be added to a WhatsApp group where photos are shared from the class.
For more information or to reserve a class, you can visit their website.
Flying Heart Yoga Puerto Vallarta
Flying Heart Yoga is a studio in Zona Romantica “committed to the integrity and heart of yoga/mindfulness practices.” I haven’t had a chance to practice here yet, but several friends have recommended it.
The studio is light, bright, and spacious, with all the yoga props you need, as well as AC and fans (because it can get very hot in PV during the summer). They offer classes 2-4 times a day, as well as special events, retreats, and yoga training. You can check the schedule here for the latest info.
Other yoga classes and popups often happen, which you can find out through the ex-pat and digital nomad Facebook and WhatsApp groups.
Joint Coworking, one of the best coworking spaces in Puerto Vallarta, has recently started running yoga classes on Mondays and Wednesdays. The classes are run by Collin Wynter, who also teaches for Yoga Vallarta – I’ve taken his classes many times, and they are fantastic!
Yoga retreats in Puerto Vallarta
Xinalani Retreat is one of the top yoga centers in Mexico, featuring six unique yoga studios immersed in nature.
The center is on a secluded beach near Quimixto, which is one of the most beautiful beaches in Puerto Vallarta.
