Mexico, Yoga and… Honey?

Meditating and doing Yoga on the beach smeared in honey… Yup this is a werid one, but still interesting… maybe I’ll try it next time I’m in Tulum, MX. Article from the New York Times written by Penelope Green. Enjoy it!

Tulum Mexico
“It is hard to know who recited the first Om or unfurled the first yoga mat upon Tulum’s epic beach. But it is true that Tulum, on the southern edge of Mexico’s Riviera Maya (and a healthy distance from the bunkerlike developments there) is a hot spot for yoga tourists. Don’t be afraid if you don’t know your downward dog from your dolphin: it’s more of a yoga aesthetic that prevails here, a mood and a look that draws misty-eyed boomer professionals (heavy on the fashion and publishing industries) with fond memories of youthful forays to Thailand for Ko Samui’s full moon festival — or maybe just those who wish they’d hit that Lonely Planet trail when their knees could still take it. You might call Tulum “Ko Samui-lite” — a strip of beach and jungle peppered with stylish haute-bohemian huts that are off the grid and just a few hours by plane from New York or Los Angeles. And instead of hallucinogens to bend your mind, there is stunning (and pricey) cuisine that reflects the eclectic tastes of the expats — from Italy, France, Germany and the two coasts of the United States — who have settled here.”
