Yoga by the Way is now "Yoga District" but just as good as before. The founder, Ellen, sold the studio to locals who renamed it Yoga District and they also studied from her so their style is similar. The class schedule is extensive, the teachers are passionate and it's yoga on a tropical, breezy rooftop with flowers and blue sky,... More

As someone with a regular yoga practice, I felt that the studio and teacher provided a great level for a vacation yoga practice. While not the most challenging, the instructor allowed for you to explore your own limits. The class was given in both English and Spanish which was helpful and appreciated. The instructor guided the practice with great flow... More

Sure had a lot of fun doing yoga at Yoga by the Way last month. Great time! It's a little hot up there, so get ready to sweat. Bring some water!

We stopped by Yoga by the Way while in Playa, only being able to do 2 sessions. Each of these, and especially Ellen's, were exactly what I was dreaming about yoga to be: challenging, accessible, encompassing, strengthening, relaxing... Ellen is able to keep you at your limits - giving the maximum but never pushing you where it wouldn't make sense... More

My husband attended his first yoga class ever here. He loved it, did very well, appreciated the adjustments, careful instruction and choreography . I have been practicing for many years and also loved her instruction. Ellen is funny and very engaging. She truly understands how to run a class full of different levels so do not let that unknown stop... More

Great for beginners. My wife and I take Yoga classes in the US but only to relax ourselves. This class was great, the teacher was really helpful and calming...a great experience all-round. They have a nice area in the lobby where they sell books and meditation dvd's.

The teachers here are excellent, and the studio is great. I bought a 10-class pass and went almost every night I was in town. I did some of the most intense yoga I've ever done here (I'm still a semi-beginner), pushing myself so much further than I ever have before. I glided out of every class feeling so stretched, energised... More
