Enter our spacious open-air yoga studio and feel yourself go, ahhhh. Relax your gaze onto layers of deep green jungle as the sounds of geckos and birds punctuate the silence. Look out onto the incredible natural surroundings. No walls. No mirrors. The space itself is soothing. And so are our classes. We believe in a conscious practice and encourage balance from the inside out. We support a healthy, balanced lifestyle.
