Rancho la Puerta in Tecate, Mexico

A Destination Like No Other

I first learned of Rancho la Puerta through my yoga studies. Indra Devi, “the first lady of yoga,” attended the same yoga school in India as my teacher, BKS Iyengar. After graduating from the Krishnamacharya yoga school, Indra Devi lived for a short time in Tecate, Mexico. There, she conducted training courses for yoga practitioners at what has now become the world’s #1 fitness spa destination by Travel + Leisure, 14 years in a row!
Spend a few days at Rancho La Puerta, and you’ll easily understand why! The Ranch, as it’s known by its devotees, is a magical place of peace. It has 4000 acres of lush paths that lovingly guide you through your stay, hiking trails, a sense of spirituality, spacious art and fitness studios, an incredible spa, and several pools (I love the water workouts). And the food! Rancho la Puerta was plant-based before it was a thing. Communal meals are incredibly delicious and nutritious. Along with an abundance of fresh fruits and vegetables, the Ranch serves dairy, eggs, seafood, grains, legumes, nuts, and seeds.
Kind, sincere, creative, strong-hearted – it’s a network of souls all together for the greater good. That’s how I feel at the Ranch, with all the staff, in their sweet gentle ways, working to bring each of us the best experience of our lives. Every moment is carefully crafted with a sense of peaceful pleasure within a feeling of aliveness.

Rancho la Puerta and Me

While I knew about Rancho la Puerta, I had never visited until two of my yoga school students told me that I had to go and that the Ranch needed me. Seeking the connection, I was quickly hooked! Rancho la Puerta has authenticity you can feel – the same as my Really Real Yoga®. Now, I too am a Ranch regular.

Here is where my announcement comes in. Each week, the Ranch hosts noted guest speakers, talented performers, and leaders in their field to present learning experiences and evening lectures. April 27 – May 4, 2024, I will be presenting “Inner Fitness – Your Way To Wellness” based on my 30+ years as a teacher of traditional yoga and Ayurveda and everything it entails for the wellness of mind, body, and spirit.

My five-day Inner Fitness series will be fun and informative. I’ll introduce practical life skills that are personalized just for you. All are designed to bring inner balance based on who you are and what you desire in this life. My series accelerates awakening, reconnecting you with a greater sense of purpose and inspiration in your life. This is my passion and my whole life’s work.
