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....

A friend and I have been to Esencia two days in a row now for micro-current facials and a deep tissue massage. I'm not one to get facials regularly so this was a splurge for me (relatively since this cost less than half for an inferior service in Miami). I have to say that Erika did an amazing job, and...

This spa is amazing. The deep tissue massage was wonderful. Esencia is very clean. They accommodated us at the spur of the moment. I will go back when I am here next year. Thank you to the staff!

Great spa that rises above others. The facial by Erika was totally perfect. I have had facials regularly for many years and she exceeded all standards. What made it fabulous were the extras not typically done with a facial- hands wrapped in cream and heated mits, massaging of neck, face and arms. I left feeling fantastic -she is exceptional ....

As a year-round local, i am at this spa for yoga and beauty services several times a week. I love the staff and the contribution to my overall health this place provides. I am obsessing lately over the weekly facials. the microdermasion and essential cleansing facial have done wonders!

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
