Chalananda is honoured by your interest in considering us. We are committed to making this an amazing experience for you.


Chalananda Retreat Center is located inside a beautiful hot springs water park called Chimulco, in the protected lake and migratory bird sanctuary area of Villa Corona, Jalisco in Mexico.  Just 45 minutes from Mexico's second largest and most traditional city Guadalajara.  The beauty of its surroundings serve as the perfect retreat to practice, learn, relax and enjoy life. 


How to get here: For international guests, the best way is to fly into Guadalajara's Don Miguel Hidalgo Airport and take a cab or uber to Chimulco Water Park in Villa Corona.  We can also arrange transportation if you contact us in advance.


The 140 metre shala is a beautiful and covered open air yoga studio. Experience the year round temperate climate perfect for practice. We offer puzzle mats, yoga mats, blankets and an audio system. We have whiteboards for teaching, and our skeleton Panchito!


The cafe, or La Coquetta, is a favourite outdoor spot offering espresso made to order. Sitting amongst the flowers is a great way to relax and restore. Have one of our baked treats!

Casa Club

Casa Club is our “home away from practice”. A great shared space with indoor yoga studio, outdoor tables, office space, wifi, and bathrooms with naturally hot thermal springs mineral waters in the showers.


In most retreats all meals are included. They feature local cuisine and vegetarian options, with agua fresca at virtually every meal! A secondary hang zone after meals, the music is known to come out!


Bungalows are located in a quiet ideal place surrounded by trees and green areas.  They are fully equipped with kitchenette, private bathroom, fan, chimney and double & single beds. Feel free to email us for more info!


The climate is temperate year round at Chalananda which makes camping very enjoyable. You can bring your own tent & sleeping bag or rent one from us.  We also provide free pillows & blankets to make your stay more comfortable.
