  • Private Lessons

    Originally, yoga was taught by one teacher directly to one student. When you work with a teacher one on one, the teacher is able to help you experience the benefits of yoga in a safe, personal way. This is how you get the absolute most out of each lesson.

    Whatever your reason for practicing yoga, private classes provide the perfect environment meeting your yoga goals, whether is to address concerns such as injuries, therapeutics, energy balancing, or even transform bad habits, including postural misalignments and behavioral patterns.

Being a yoga teacher in Playa del Carmen

I’ve lived in Playa del Carmen for Five years and have been teaching yoga here for just about half that time. Of course I’ve been brought up here in this famous yoga community and have learned from this town’s best teachers. Being a student here was FUN! There are always plenty of places to choose from with a variation of styles, locations, prices, schedules… you name it!

I have taught all over Playa! But these are the places I teach at now. I’ve made Playa my home and my students come to visit me, but they also come to these wonderful shalas that have so much to offer as well. Come visit me in any one of these places!

1yr Anniversary Celebration @ Aldea Corazon!

Que bonitoooo! A beautiful morning in Aldea Corazon restaurant. Thank you to all who put together this magical event around the cenote, which is the ‘heart’ of this rich, Mayan village-style setting.

Starting at 8am, with around 20-30 sekera-yoga yogis and crossfitters from FFIT Crossfit, we gathered and set up our tapetes on the ground and practiced in the moist, copal-fragranced air of the morning jungle.  After a LUSH practice with soft music, sweat and delicious streeeeeaaaching, a few drops of rain fell through the rainforest canopy and signaled our time to gather inside for a fresh fruit breakfast, compliments of the owners of one of Playa’s most healthy, enchanted restaurants.

Plans to recreate this magical event with a stronger emphasis on raw-food? Maaaaaybe!  Are you interested in attending? Please contact me and I’ll get the word across for you! :D

Namaste!  <3

The Motivation


“As the body becomes more flexible, the mind becomes more open.

When you practice, you take control of the spirit, of your life, you build confidence and conquer fears; and when you feel that sense of achievement, it translates into everything else in your life.

Its not about extremes, its more about balance. Seeing people achieve their goals through practice is something really special; because that positive energy radiates from them, and its infectious… Its inspiring.

I think that’s what gives me the motivation to teach yoga.”
