Women of Wellness: Global Souls Enhancing Health and Fitness in Puerto Vallarta

By Shay Seminerio

August 24, 2023

Puerto Vallarta, with its captivating blend of tradition and modernity, has become a beacon for women from around the globe who are passionate about wellness. These women, now calling this picturesque coastal city home, are making significant strides in the health and fitness industry.


Holistic Well-being: Body, Mind, and Soul

A holistic understanding of health is at the heart of Puerto Vallarta’s wellness revolution. It’s more than just exercise routines and meal plans. Tina Jackson of Wellness Rooted captures this essence beautifully:

We are interconnected beings; our present systems of body and mind, as well as a connectedness to past experiences. All parts of us need to be tended to be free from dis-ease.

The city is now home to yoga studios, wellness retreats, and holistic healing centers that embody this philosophy.

Jama Lambert, Who just finished writing her first book “The Immunology of Celiac Disease and Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity: What Your Doctor Didn’t Tell You,” echos a similar sentiment, encouraging us to recognize the inner signals our bodies send:

Just as in life when it comes to health, listen to your gut. The epicentre of health lies in the gut. Take care of it with a positive mindset, and the gut will take care of your body.

These two philosophies are interwoven, emphasizing the importance of understanding oneself holistically.


Nurturing Community Through Nature and Nutrition

Puerto Vallarta’s health and fitness community thrives on the bonds formed within its circles. These are places of mutual support, empowerment, and shared growth. Cynthia Vega of Garden Of Cyn emphasizes the spiritual connection to nature and its bounty, reminding us to

Embrace the harmony of nature’s bounty for your well-being. Let the vibrant colors of plant-based eco-friendly diets nourish your body and the connection to your soul.


Pushing Boundaries: Innovative Fitness Endeavors

Innovation is the lifeblood of this thriving community. Puerto Vallarta offers everything from state-of-the-art gyms to unique, personalized coaching methods. Natacha Radojevic’s Wave Elements stands testament to this, pushing individuals to see beyond and harness their innate capabilities and encouraging us to:

…activate Ocean Confidence with exposure therapy or ocean confidence training & tune into your heart and soul going within and experiencing an Intuitive sound healing journey. Through the untamed nature of the ocean, matched with the resonance of sound, both these waveforms can unlock a fierce soul calling and unlimited physical potential.

All bodies are celebrated here, and every wellness journey is unique. The women of wellness in Puerto Vallarta are challenging and reshaping beauty standards daily.

Blending personal passion with business acumen can be challenging, but the women in Puerto Vallarta make it seem effortless. Tymeka Zimmerman, a fitness and life coach who runs Wellness Warrior Masterminds, a 16-week fitness coaching program designed exclusively for women, has a philosophy that rings true here:

Health is not just the absence of illness, but the presence of vitality.

Their businesses are about pursuing wellness and navigating the intricacies of entrepreneurship in their adopted home.
