Esencia Yoga Spa, a Registered Yoga Alliance School, was born out of the passion to share wellness. We believe in the integration of your physical, mental and spiritual health to help you achieve the optimal state of well-being and balance. This is how we created your yoga classes and spa treatments.

San Miguel de Allende’s premier yoga and spa center, we are an oasis for relaxation and rejuvenation. The center is a place to play, explore, discover and find your balance. We are a warm environment (often literally!) and feature a variety of daily classes, male and female changing rooms with showers, a fresh juice bar and a spacious classroom where you will find a wealth of new friends and self-awareness.

Compassion for others and love of one’s self — wherever we may be — is what defines our “Esencia." Esencia Yoga Spa was created for you and by you....

I probably waited too long to get this massage. My upper back and shoulders were in a world of hurt. I gritted my teeth as Erica worked away the knots and tense muscles with amazingly strong hands. Miracles began to happen. The pain was lessening. The knots unknotting. My 50 minutes were over, but I felt wonderful relief. Erica is... More

The people at Esencia are terrific, the setting is very relaxing. Carlos at the front desk speaks perfect English. The deep tissue massages from Erika were just what my aching body needed from all the walking around San Miguel. My husband and I both got weekly massages from Erika while staying in San Miguel and were completely satisfied each time.

My husband and I were in San Miguel for the month of February. My girlfriend recommended Erika at Esencia Yoga Spa if I wanted to get a massage while we were there. Well, it was so good, I had 3 massages that month. I came out feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. Oh, and I should mention the most patient receptionist I... More

Esencia is a homey little spa, with a friendly, responsive staff, tucked into a side street a block behind Hotel Real de Minas. I can't evaluate the yoga here but the massages are first rate. During the month we spent in San Miguel, I had four massages with Vanessa. Although I had chosen the relaxation massage, Vanessa adjusted the pressure... More

Esencia Yoga Spa is in the Colonia San Antonio about a 20 minute walk from the Jardin and just around the corner from the Hotel Real de Minas. Carlos, the manager, is very friendly and accommodating, willing to craft a schedule to meet your needs. The facility is a spa offering massages, facials, manicures and pedicures in addition to yoga... More

I regularly get pedicures in the US. No other nail technician/manicurist has done such a nice job of cleaning my cuticles. My toes felt so fresh & clean I opted out of polish and went natural. Erika has a great touch! I'm going back for a manicure and facial. More to follow…

WE attended a basic yoga class which was led by an experienced certified instructor, the spa itself was very elegant and comfortable. I also had a facial and mani/pedi which was fabulous and better than back in the US with regard to the time taken and extras given

More than 3 yrs ago, a friend talked me into attending a yoga class with her. It wasn´t easy convincing me to go, I´m a competitive person and knew that Yoga wasn´t a sport or a place to be competitive. It´s a lifestyle! I am now a die-hard Yogi! And I attribute that to Melinda and Esencia spa in San... More

An MUST HAVE spa experience in San Miguel de Allende Had wonderful facial, massage and the body wrap by Erika. Carlos is a friendly and efficient receptionist. The spa manager Melinda teaches Yoga which I would like to try in the near future.

We are pleased you had a pleasant experience at Esencia. We are especially pleased you enjoyed your full body treatment body wrap. We made some adjustments recently to that treatment and we always are looking to please our customers. Thank you very much for your comment! More
