Our mission is to create a community space that revolves around movement, embodiment, functional fitness, mindful practices, play, self-expression, and healthy, balanced lifestyles.

At the Monkey House Mexico we are re-defining modern fitness and coming back to our primal roots.  Instead of trying to be ‘fit’ in order to look a certain way, we focus on enjoying movement, learning new skills, and exploring the infinite possibilities of our bodies.  We celebrate all bodies!  Click here for info about our upcoming retreats.

One of our inspirations for Monkey House Mexico is Athletic Playground in Emeryville, California.  Shira Yaziv, owner, has been a friend and colleague for years and has participated and taught on many Sweet Retreats in the past.  Shira’s success in creating conscious community through play at Athletic Playground opened our eyes to the idea of creating a culture of movement and healthy lifestyle.  We come together to enjoy life, to share food, skills, movement, stories and to share ourselves.  This is the kind of culture we want to create here at the Monkey House in La Punta.

In February 2017 we built the Monkey House Mexico.  Here are some photos of the build – from ground up.

We hope you will come visit us soon.  For more information about classes, workshops, events and RETREATS, click here.
