Local Tip- When traveling to Sayulita (or any place tropical, in general) it’s a good idea to think ahead of what items you may need to bring on your trip for your workouts. It’s always best to do some research to see what studios, retreats, and fitness classes provide to their students. Most classes provide mats, blocks, straps and blankets. It’s important to note, although Sayulita does not offer any “hot” or Bikram yoga classes, doing yoga anywhere in the tropics will give you the same great work out and a healthy sweat on, so be sure to bring water and a towel to class!
