Ellen De Jonge offers a great yoga sanctuary from the busyness of the "Quinta" in Playa del Carmen. You can find a wide variety of classes and check the schedule for workshops. Get to class early, it is not surprising to find full classes.

I'm finally getting around to reviewing this place. I bought a couple of punch cards for multiple classes because I love the place so much. Central access. Great teachers, Tice wood floor with good vibe. It can get a little warm in there which I appreciate it helps open up the body. I wish this place the best and hope... More

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
