Up in the hills north of town amid lush forest, this is a blissfully secluded perch to learn and practice shamanic healing and other esoteric arts, with a magnificent yoga platform built into the hillside. A cafe prepares vegetarian food and accommodations are available in shared adobe cabañas with thatched roofs and magnificent lake views.

There are daily morning yoga classes, but most visitors like to take extended yoga and mediation retreats. There are other wellness offerings such as Thai massage; check the website for the current program.
