Yoga Puerto Escondido Mexico
Our yoga classes are currently held on Monday. Wednesday and Friday. They are preceded by a meditation which starts at 6.00 am (Monday to Friday). We ask that you also join the meditation as it will help you move into a more mindfull space and more likely to receive greater benefit from the hatha yoga class.
Our partially guided, heart centred sitting meditations last for 30 minutes, are usually led by Pete Adams (founder of The Sanctuary), and are open to the public.
We make no charge for our morning meditations but you are welcome to leave a donation, perhaps some fruit, vegetables (please note that at The Sanctuary we eat vegan unprocessed food), or even some cash if you feel inspired to do so. There is absolutely no expectation to do this.
Spiritual Reading, Sun Gazing and Warm Up
Following the meditation at 6.30am we usually listen to one or two sutras and explanations of them, from the yoga sutras of Patanjali. Pete is recording these as he reads them, and some of the previous recordings are available to listen to on this page: https://www.moving-overseas-guide.com/yoga-sutras-of-patanjali.html. We then start a set of warm up exercises to prepare us for the asana section of the class, taking a short break to watch the sun rise during which some of us practice "sun gazing", rebounding (to stimulate the lymph system), and yoga for the eyes.
As the time of sun rise changes every day, this section between the meditation and hatha yoga section of the class can vary slightly.
The asana section of the class. Asanas (physical postures) with a focus on awareness of the present moment and of the chakras form the core of the practice. Our slow, relaxing, profound meditative style of hatha yoga is suitable both for beginners and experienced yogis. We will be accessing deep layers of consciousness and releasing energetic blockages through the use of ancient yoga techniques. The style is based on the teachings of Agama and Hridaya Yoga where asanas are held usually for several minutes to allow the flow of energy to more deeply penetrate both our physical and non-physical bodies. Each asana is followed by a short awareness phase during which we focus our attention to perceive the effects of the received energies.
The class finishes at 8.00 am after a 10 to 15 minute guided and Tibetan Singing Bowl complete body relaxation.
We are now offering several healing retreats at The Sanctuary. Please visit our Healing Retreats Page for more information. .
Pete Adams has been learning and practicing yoga since January 2008 when he took the first 7 weeks of the Agama teacher training course in Koh Phangan, Thailand. He continued to study with Agama Yoga in Mazunte, Mexico from January 2009 when the school first opened, and subsequently with Hridaya Yoga after they joined Agama at El Corazon in Mazunte.
Following many other studies, particularly over the last seven years since retiring from a succesful business in England and moving overseas, pete brings a wealth of experience particularly in the field of natural health. During 2012 he attended three of the Hridaya Revelation of the Spititual Heart Meditation Retreats and become a Minister of Health for the Genesis II Church of Health & Healing.

Residential Healing Protocols. Although we offer many individual therapies as shown above, the major focus of The Sanctuary is to offer residential healing, through a protocol which includes many different healing modalities including some of the above but more specifically nutrition (fasting, juicing, raw, whole-foods), use of MMS, enema and much more. Possibly the most healing of all is living in a community of supportive and loving people. We invite you to view our volunteer page which currently has the most complete information about what we offer. We also welcome Personal Health consultations from local residents and will discuss what we are able to offer on an individual basis.
