“knowledgeable teachers, beautiful space”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

I did several classes with both Dagmar and Sylvia at the open air studio in Montezuma. Both teachers are both calm and dynamic offering a lovely experience with great attention to the individual students in the room. In the classes, there were people of all levels and the teachers paid close attention giving different options for the students. There is an emphasis on breathing, noticing your own self in your body, and tuning inwards. Classes are peaceful, but also challenging- a great combination. I'd recommend Sylvia's classes to anyone wanting a greater understanding of proper alignment! Dagmar's voice is like butter, and she has a real knack for personal adjustments. Wonderful studio, and definitely worth making the effort to take a few classes.

“Yoga in Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

We spent 3 wonderful days in Montezuma recently, during our stay I took myself and my 2 daughters aged 16 & 11 years to 2 yoga sessions at Montezuma Yoga at Hotel Los Mangos. The setting was inspirational as was Sylvia,our teacher. My daughters were beginners and she made them feel very welcome and helped them with the different techniques. If you are visiting Montezuma this is a must do, to be able to have a yoga session in the open air to the sound of birds, wildlife and the ocean is a truly uplifting and relaxing experience and one I will not forget.

“Learn Yoga from Intuitive Teachers in Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

I spent 4 weeks in Montezuma broadening my yoga practise with Dagmar and Sylvia. The studio and environs are a perfect complement to a well rounded yoga practise. The classes can be restorative or challenging and i found the teachers to be very aware of what kind of practise the students need. Highly recommend!

“Amazing teachers, amazing yoga, unforgettable experience!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

Whether you're a beginner or an experienced yogi this place will give you an amazing experience. The view speaks for itself overlooking the ocean and hearing the monkeys and birds in the surrounding trees, but the teachers are what make it a great hour and half of your day. Both Dagmar and Silvia are there to help you enjoy and deepen your practice in whatever way they can. Don't be afraid to speak with either of them before or after class with any questions you may have. You will not be disappointed and if you don't love yoga yet, you will!

“Yoga just for the money!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012

This location and his beautiful surrounding landscape unfortunately don't offer good yoga teachers, only people that use this word to make money. For example, my teacher Silvia Nevjinsky never had a studio in New York as she says in his curriculum! He started doing yoga just before starting to teach it there. This place is apparently well-organized and' half-a-scam.. any gym in the world can give a better service...for 1/4 of the money!

We are happy person but not stupid

Hola Daynisa,
I am sorry that you didn't like your experience at Montezuma Yoga and respect your opinion, however I am surprised about your review as it is stating false facts and therefore i like to reply to you.....first of all we do not state anywhere that Silvia Nevjinsky owned a yoga studio in NY. Silvia has been practicing Vinyasa Flow Yoga since 1998. In New York she studied intensively with Meg Carlough, April Martucci and Melissa Mitchell . She is a registered Yoga teacher with the Yoga Alliance since September 2005 and has further studied anatomy and kinesiology with Irene Dowd and Paula Tursi. She has been teaching for a few years and is already teaching at Montezuma Yoga since March 2011. So I don't know why you are writing such false facts....However I am the founder and director of Montezuma Yoga and have been teaching here for over 11 years and as you can see in all the other reviews besides your own, people have great experiences and we are very dedicated to provide a supportive and inspiring environment. We also offer discounted class cards to tourists and residents are practicing yoga for half price...Every saturday we offer a donation yoga class with all proceeds going to the local recycling project......Wishing you all the Best, enjoy the practice, Namaste Dagmar
