The sky temple is a perfect place for mind, soul and body. The facility is perfect for yoga, meditation, chanting and soul finding.

“Serenity at the Sky Temple!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014

First of all, Yelapa is a wonderful experience in itself. Quaint, safe, and serene (the fact that there are no cars make it a great escape!). Then on top of that, there is the Yoga Sky Temple, where you can experience world class yoga with a world class person/instructor in Judith. Highly recommend!

“Sky Temple is a beautiful dream come true!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

I wasn't sure what to make of a yoga retreat near Puerto Vallarta that one must travel by boat to get to. Puerto Vallarta has a charming boardwalk to explore, and you leave for Yelapa from the distinctive dock that looks like a sail at the south end of the boardwalk. The Sierra Madre loom beyond the coast of the Bahia de Banderas bay and after 40 minutes you turn into the northwest facing bay that houses the village of Yelapa.

We stayed for the week in the Garcia's rentals just above where the river empties into the ocean. We spent hours soaking up the lap of the waves, the amazing variety and beauty of the birds flying and flocking, and of course, did yoga in Sky Temple.

This is a place for people who like to walk, and can negotiate steps - there are 400 of them from the main road through the village to Sky Temple. 400 steps that are more like an athletic walking meditation because there are altars, prayer flags with meditative mantras, and unique species to ponder like the devouring fig overtaking a palm tree, or the endangered military mccaws flying in pairs overhead.

Sky Temple is an experience! Gentle breezes waft through the beautiful shaded space while you look out over the jungle canopy toward Yelapa bay with sounds of the surf alternating with the vibrant bird life. After yoga you can descend to Los Suenos for meals - indeed the whole week was like a beautiful dream.

We enjoyed the snorkeling - many tropical fish in schools unphased by snorkelers let us see them up close. January yielded a couple of whale sightings as well. The 1.5 hour (each way) hike to the waterfall was mostly shaded and informative of the local flora and fauna.

This place seemed to bring out the best in our group of yoga practicioners - I hope you get to retreat here and let the magic of Judith's family and vision hold you in their embrace!

“Yelapa, Mexico”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

What a quaint, fishing village.
Taxi ride from the Marina in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
Great place to spend the day, or over night.
