We booked at Na Balam hotel, knowing there was on site yoga available. I had only done yoga with DVDs and was looking forward to my first 'real' yoga class. It was amazing! A perfect balance of physical and spiritual learnings. Thank you!

This yoga school has classes available on four fixed hours during a day, which makes it very easy for a passing tourist to join some of them. Our teacher took well into account the different levels of the participants and managed to create a very peaceful and relaxing atmosphere. Also the place was very nice.

All is an excellent teacher. We are in our early 50's and have done a little yoga in the past. Lal gives an all round experience - body, mind and spirit. He is able to gently extend our capabilities and is a lovely guy. We look forward to our 1.5 hour session every day. Love it!

I read about NaBalam before going to Isla Mujeres and was pleased to find that it was a short walk up the beach from my hotel. I went on my very first morning and only missed one day during my stay. Walking up an amazing beach, experiencing an amazing yoga practice and walking back to my condo in the ocean... More

I was able to practice three times at Vastu during my stay on Isla Mujeres last month. Had we been on the island longer, I would have been there more! The instructors at Vastu are very welcoming and made class accessible to all practice levels. The style of yoga they teach is slightly different than my usual practice but it... More

I had the pleasure to practice yoga witb Vastu at the beautiful Nabalam both last year and again a couple times again this week while on Isla Mujeres. Tropical plants surround you, a beautiful wooden studio, glimpses of the ocean and the sound of the ocean all add a beautiful element to the class. Lal, the instructor is an incredibly... More

I am by no means a yoga master. I'm not flexible, and I have limited experience. That said, I like to try different yoga places when I travel, and I have taken classes in 6 or 7 different countries. I found this to be a place that felt so unbelievably authentic, it made many of the other classes I've taken... More

My spouse and I greatly benefited from this practice. I have been practicing many years and still learned more valuable technique. Well worth the time! Mary & Anthony

I've been a student of yoga for many years and this is probably my favorite. All the instructors are very knowledgeable and made me feel very comfortable with some difficult poses. I took several classes and the next morning I would always wake up so refreshed. Thanks to all of you at Vastu!
