Our studio has wooden floors, large mirrors, but most importantly full-length windows that show you a beautiful view to our garden with large tropical trees, a water creek and birds chirping all day long.
There’s yoga classes everyday with different certified experienced instructors, that will adjust the classes to everyone’s needs. While you’re staying here you can join any class you want for an additional cost of $10 per class or even ask for a private session, you can also reserve the studio for no additional cost when there’s no classes for your own activities, meditations or stretching.

"Hatha" is the term for the physical practice of yoga, as well as a style of yoga itself. The main difference between a Hatha style class and a Vinyasa (Flow) style class is that Hatha tends to move at a slightly slower pace, not 'flowing' the movements together as one would in Vinyasa.
This class is based on physical postures ("asanas"), deep breathing, mindfulness and listening to the body. The goal is to align, strengthen and promote flexibility in body, with an aim of leaving your practice feeling relaxed and balanced. Traditional asanas are held in accurate alignment, as we make our way through standing, seated, and reclined postures, including twists, backbends, forward folds, and hip openers, etc.
This class is good for beginners, as well as more advanced practitioners.
Deep Core Yoga
"Deep Core" Yoga is an asana-based movement sequence that connects mind to muscle, with a focus on developing a strong core. We will move deep into the body, combining traditional yoga asana with micro-movements and physical touch to strengthen and tone. Intentional, yet challenging, this class also includes breath awareness, self-touch and pressure point activation to help locate and release specific muscles.
The core is the collective term used to describe the muscles that control your spine, specifically your abdominals, waist and lower back. A well-developed core provides essential spinal stability and can contribute to good posture. Both spine stability and good posture will help minimize back pain. Suitable for all levels.
Vinyasa Slow Flow
Designed to build strength and flexibility, Vinyasa ("Flow") means breath to movement -- a moving meditation.
Class begins with a short meditation to connect to your breath. As we begin to move through each pose we keep the focus on breath and alignment. This class improves focus, balance and flexibility all while building strength. Work at your own pace and intensity to a fun and challenging sequence.
Class is for All Levels, therefore you choose the intensity of each pose. Modifications will be offered to make class accessible to all levels as well as variations to make the pose more challenging.
Deep stretch and release!
Yin Yoga targets the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis and lower spine. Yin postures are held for three minutes which gives the body an opportunity to open and release tension from deeper tissues. Props are used to help get into and stay in the poses.
Yin is known as a quiet meditative practice. All levels welcome.
