One of the things we love most about Sayulita is how active our community is. With an active lifestyle, such as playing sports, (surfing or paddle boarding), or exploring and adventuring in the outdoors, this can bring the risk of injury or pain, and also the desire to maintain your fitness. Whether you need help recovering from an injury, you suffer from chronic pain, you want to improve or gain muscle mass, or you’re an athlete who wants to keep up your physical conditioning, Sarathiel from WAVES Physiotherapy & Sports Science in Sayulita is here to help you!
Sayulita-- are you ready to pump some iron again? SayulitaFit, Sayulita’s first premier fitness center and gym in Sayulita has officially reopened to the community after a six month closure due to Covid. SayulitaFit first opened its doors two years ago on November 12th of 2018. Owner Josh Serrano tells me about the new classes the gym will be offering, as well as the extra preventive measures SayulitaFit will now be taking to ensure health and safety amongst their members.
Getting around in Sayulita has never been easier! With so much to see in our amazing pueblo, Baikas electric bike rentals in Sayulita makes it possible for you to get to anywhere in Sayulita- whether it be to jungle paths, secluded beaches, dirt roads, or up large hills. Walking around can quickly become tiresome, especially in the heat, and cars or golf carts cannot always make it up big hills or on bumpy roads, and often are costly to rent. Baikas are fun, easy to use for any age, eco-friendly, and can get you anywhere in Sayulita at a quick pace. I talk to the owner of Baikas more about their electric bikes and what makes them so unique.
This month’s recipient of Sayulita Life’s $5,000 donation is Sayulita’s local youth baseball team, the Jaibitos. The youth baseball team is run and organized by coach Pedro Navarro, who volunteers his time and efforts in supporting the kids and their baseball program. Thanks to his hard work and time, and Sayulita Life’s donation, which will go directly toward the purchase of new equipment, our youth can now enjoy a fully operational baseball program with proper equipment, in order to play competitively in games against other teams in surrounding areas.
Yoga can mean many different things to different people, and often it can feel overwhelming to find the right type of yoga or the right type of studio to meet your yoga needs. At Sayulita Yoga Studio, Iyengar Yoga is the central practice. Because of its methodology, combined with the studio’s calming and controlled environment, the space is perfect to allow students to really focus and go inward without disturbance or distraction. Sayulita Yoga Center is the right choice for yogis looking to learn about yoga just as much as to practice and engage in it. I speak with the owner, Graziella, about the studio and the type of Yoga she offers in her space.
Some of our local Sayulita surfers will soon be heading to compete in the Mexican National Surf Games in Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca, from October 28th, 2019, through November 10th, 2019. These young athletes have been training and competing for a long time in order to be ready for this amazing opportunity. The local non-profit organization Pro Sayulita generously stepped up to help the competitors, by giving a donation to the team to assist in covering some of the expenses of the tournament.
This month’s recipient of Sayulita Life’s $5,000 donation is SayuParke. SayuParke is a park and space where our community’s children can feel safe while playing and having fun, away from the busy crowds of the plaza or Sayulita streets. Run strictly by volunteers and through the efforts of many local parents in the area, SayuParke is often in need of donations and local support in order to maintain and improve its play structures and overall site maintenance.
Sayulita Life’s $5,000 donation helped in purchasing a brand new, safe, and well-constructed slide for one of the play structures in the park, which the park desperately needed after the old one broke, and the temporary ladder rotted after some heavy rains.
This month’s recipient of the Sayulita Life $5,000 donation is the Mar y Vida camp, run and organized by the local organization El Centro Creativo.
The Mar y Vida camp is a five day camp for local youth, to be held on July 1st, 2019, through July 5th. The camp includes five days of fun, exploratory and learning based activities, such as art, surfing, and science experiments. I spoke with Risa Machuca, one of the leaders of the camp, about the Mar y Vida experience, and how Sayulita Life’s donation will help impact and benefit the camp and the local youth attending.
Sayulita’s Junior Surf and Sup Teams are heading to Colima, Manzanillo, on May 25th, 2019, through May 31st, to compete for the first time in the Mexican National Olympic games. After two weeks of training, the youth are ready to compete against the best, although many of them have been surfing or paddle boarding for their whole lives in preparation. This is the first time in history that the Nayarit state team has been represented at the Mexican National Olympic games, due to the requirement that the team members must also be enrolled in school, and also because this is the first time that surfing has been acknowledged as a federal sport by the government of Nayarit. I talk with the team coach, Geovani Perez, about the team and the excitement over this competition.
