After a great deal of hard work, Yoga in Yelapa  is completed and boasts an 1800 square foot yoga studio, tropical accommodations and a full kitchen/dining area. Now that this facility is fully operational they have announced their 2010 offering of extended yoga courses, making Yelapa a true yoga vacation destination. Comment the owners Judith and Cody, “If anyone would have told us years ago that we would be living outdoors in the small coastal fishing village of Yelapa, Mexico, we could not have imagined it. Not only are we now living in Yelapa, a place reached by boat with no cars, but we've completed the challenging project of building a yoga studio on a mountain. For over a year, we've watched the materials for this project be carried up the mountain by mules and on the backs of strong men - a shear force of physical strength and commitment to build - through sun, rain, humidity and every challenge possible.

Here’s a sampling of what’s planned for the upcoming months.
