One of the reasons we wanted to return to Isla Mujeres for our winter vacation was because of the great yoga classes we took last year taught by Lal and his instructors. Their method of yoga is for all levels and balances the body and the mind, a great antidote to the temptations of this beautiful island. It is challenging... More

Vastu has a lot of soul. This is the result of their wonderful instructors. They are safe yet can help you challenge yourself in the poses. They are happy to share their deep knowledge of their series of movements as well as yogic thought and philosophy if you dig that. Mats and blankets are there to use so all you... More

My wife and I were staying in Isla Mujeres over the Christmas Holiday. I am an avid Yogi and my wife is a beginner. These classes made our trip and brought us into "vacation relaxation mode" much faster than we would otherwise have been. We are still talking about this Yoga experience so I felt compelled to write a review.... More

Vastu made our time on the island so much richer. Lal adapts his sessions to those present. He challenges and nourishes in a perfect ratio. The space is peaceful and calming and a cool retreat in the heat. I bought a group of five sessions and am so glad I made time for yoga. Great for beginners and experienced yogis.... More

This had to be the most amazing Yoga experience I've ever had. The setting is peaceful and Lal is very patient and pushes you gently. Whether it's only you or 10 people in class, it feels like you're always getting personal attention. I would definitely recommend going to an early morning session. Really gets you relaxed and prepared for the... More

I thoroughly enjoyed our yoga session with Lal. We went as part of a bachelorette party, and our group included people with varying levels of yoga experience. The class was such a well rounded experience, ranging from breathing exercises and learning how to fully relax to some intense core work and a head stand (which I never thought I'd be... More

This is the real deal, not the latest fad yoga. Location is very peaceful. Class level is tailored to participants. Best classes I've been to in many years of yoga.

My daughter and I recently visited Isla Mujeres for a much needed relaxing break. We attended class with Lal and it was such a wonderful experience. I practice yoga regularly but the classes with Lal allowed me an opportunity to learn so much about myself and how my yoga practice balances my life. Thank you, Namaste.

If you are an experienced yogi, go! If you think you can`t do yoga, go! Learn to breathe the way you were born to and change your life. Never too early, never too late. Several classes with excellent yoga teachers every day at Na Balam Hotel. I did the Vastu School of Yoga`s Teacher Training RYT 200. It was 21... More
