I was already on a yoga retreat, but had I not been, I would definitely have signed up for this. The location at NaBalam hotel is great.

My groupon and crossed fingers brought me and my fiancé to Hotel Na Balam and to Lal. It was a most pleasant surprise and has changed our yoga practice and life perspective. Our first yoga class was just us two and Lal...then the next class as well. It was perfect! Lal shared life insight as well as exposing us to... More

A week with yoga cleared my senses on all levels and left me with a spirit ready for new challenges. Your voices linger with me and I feel truly grateful for having had the chance to learn from you. Truly a piece of paradise that I will carry with me in my heart. Until we meet again:-) Namaste Tine

This is my third February on Isla Mujeres - I come for the sun, sand, music, water and above all the yoga at Vastu. The yoga is exceptional, the teachers amazing. My practice is greatly enriched by this amazing school.

My husband and I vacationed on Isla Mujeres for 2 weeks in December. We discovered Vastu in our second week and wish we had started going to classes earlier in our vacation. If you want a true classical yoga experience spend some time with Lal. He was fabulous! A truly worthwhile experience and worth going back to Isla to take... More
