I was looking for a place to continue my yoga practice while on holiday, and when I found SXM yoga on-line I was thrilled. I sent a list of questions and Megan responded within a day with extremely helpful and cheerful responses. Yes - they have mats on hand. Yes, you can purchase a card and share it with your spouse. She also told me several options on how to get there from our resort. She went above and beyond several times in providing assistance. My husband and I did five classes in the two weeks we were there, all with Megan. (I'm told the other instructor Petra is quite good too).
We always did the morning classes because we opted to walk there and back, an hour each way, and the morning sun is gentler :-). I do yoga several times a week with a variety of talented teachers, and Megan's class was very well done. Her voice is soothing, her direction is bang on, and she also did some new-to-me positions that I quite enjoyed. My husband is less experienced and "stiffer," and the class was perfect or me as well. Maybe next year we'll grab a cab and try the sunset class, I imagine it's quite beautiful. A wonderful bonus - t the end of class, Megan gives everyone a gentle mini massage. The product on her hands had a wonderful scent - I asked her about it and it's actually a hand sanitizer as well, so when she goes from person to person her hands are clean. Very thoughtful!
On a side note, the classes I attended had a wide range of students - men and women, younger and older, experienced yogis and people who may have been doing it for the first time. Similarly, some folks were dressed in typical yoga clothing, while others were dressed in whatever they happened to have with them on vacation. It was comfortable for everyone.
The location of the shala is outstanding - under a roof in the shade, on the beach, with only sand between you and the ocean. I heard the waves crashing and the birds chirping, and I am sure when I return to my hectic work-life, I will envision this yoga class when I am searching for "calm."
This was a fantastic find for us, and we will definitely be making it a regular art of our annual visit to this glorious island!
