“Yoga with a View!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2012

Shooting Star is a gem of a yoga studio, and for anyone wanting to relax. The building itself is open, so not only do you feel the ocean breeze, but you can see the ocean from where you stand. They also offer hot yoga and massage. My masseuse came right to my cabana at La Ponderosa, and my massage was done right out in the open so I could hear the ocean and feel the breeze. The instructors are friendly and very welcoming. All in all this was a great studio, and I'd highly recommend it to anyone.

“Massage, a beautiful yoga studio, a surf shop... they have it all!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2011

I went on a trip to Pavones (my 4th trip) and finally I managed to make an appointment with Amy, who I was told by a number of people, is a very good massage therapist. Being a massage therapist myself, I am incredibly choosy. This massage by Amy was honestly the best massage I have ever had. The location was stunning, in an open air yoga studio with the sound of the ocean and gentle wind chimes too. I love a strong/ therapeutic massage and this was perfect... not so intense that I couldn't drift into that state of massage bliss, but that perfect blend of 'good pain' !
Amy's husband Alex runs the local town Surf Shop called SeaKings surf shop. It is in the best location and has everything you need to rescue you from a bummer surf trip if you break a fin, need a leash, even buy a new board!
Amy offers all kinds of fun activities too, she will take you on hikes, snorkeling, they really are the one stop shop for organizing everything great about your vacation.... Enjoy!
