Yoga classes wit Lal, Lorrie, and Krystal were the highlight of my recent trip to Isla Mujeres! While on a 10 day family vacation, I was able to sneak away once a day for a calming, challenging yoga class. The style was slightly different from what I'm used to at home, but the teachers explained each pose clearly and created... More

The first time I entered the palapa, I immediately felt something special. You can hear the waves crashing down into the sand, the sound of the wind rustling nearby palm trees as you fall deeper into relaxation on your yoga mat. Lal instills confidence in your practice from the moment you set foot on the mat. From headstands, to the... More

Of all the studios and styles of yoga I have tried, Sivananda yoga at Vastu is the by far the best I have ever done. Lal and the other teachers are amazing beyond words. My sisters and I discovered the school 2 years ago while on vacation in Isla and now its the reason we try to go back every... More

You don't need a fancy yoga retreat. Lal and Vastu is all you need. Doing yoga in a palapa every morning with Lal made my vacation absolutely perfect. Lal is by far the best yoga teacher I've ever practiced with. Motivation to get back to Isla Mujeres more.

What a treasure to find Chucho and Lal. Not only were they able to assess my weaknesses but also my strengths. I was able to successfully do poses that I once thought would forever be out of reach. Even more importantly, my mind and spirit feel at peace. They both teach with love, encouragement and are amazingly intuitive. I will... More
