    Awesome yoga experience
    Wow did I have a blast at the Yogaloft. I was in Mexico for eleven days and only three in Playa del Carmen. Prior to finding the Yogaloft I wasn’t having any luck locating a studio for my practices. Practice was a slice of heaven and hell. First practice was with Michael L for an Ashtanga practice. I had never completed the full series prior to this. The assistance was great and help me get into poses properly. I was hesitant returning for the morning, but I felt awesome post class. Yep, I wanted more. I put my big boy shorts on and showed up for the morning power vinyasa with Michael C. I’ll be back. Rahul is the man he was so welcoming. Thanks for an awesome experience. Ian

    Special studio
    Fantastic studio and teachers. I took Ellen's vinyasa class first and it was a strong challenging practice. Ellen is great and she has a great sense of humor. The next day, I took Michael's Gannon power class. I had been 'warned' that it was tough, and it certainly lived up to it- the class was amazing, though at the same time invigorating and spiritual. Thanks Michael! You have a very special studio!

    Yogaloft Playa is the BEST!!!!
    Beautiful space with incredibly qualified teachers. Michael Gannon's classes are incredibly fun and challenging with great music and a beautiful community. Yogaloft is a MUST when visiting the Riviera Maya regardless of the level of yoga you practice there is a class in this space for everyone. Great energy from everyone that shares this space.

    True Yoga SCHOOL and Playa Destination
    I have had many classes and training opportunities with Michael since 2022 and will continue to make YogaLoft a go-to in my travels. His school is beautiful, instructors are excellent, and the community is bright and loving. Highly recommend!

    Home is within Yoga Loft
    YogaLoft has been my home studio for the past 6 years and I continue to return year after year as I cannot find the same experience as what I receive in the states. The home that Michael Gannon has created has sparked a light in my life…The Ashtanga tradition, culture, experienced teachers, the sense of tribe when you walk through the doors, cleanliness is a 11/10, “Terrible Tuesdays”, - there is something so very magical about this space…truly ineffable. If you are visiting PDC, I highly recommend pushing yourself to attend a few classes….You may just be surprised how empowered you feel leaving the Shala. My forever home <3

    An Ashtangi haven/heaven 🧘🏾‍♀️
    Yogaloft is a sacred space for yogis (incl. experienced, unexperienced, and new) to enjoy the deepening of their relationship to themselves. I highly recommend practice here if you love a challenge, and would like to learn how to slow down the pace when taking on challenges to enjoy the experience (i.e. the process or ride). 🤙🏾

    Best yoga studio in Playa del Carmen
    Exceptional yoga instructors, welcoming community, cool vibe. A wide range of classes to get a challenging workout or learn the basics. Thank you to Michael, Ellen and the YL tribe who welcome us and offer a fantastic yoga experience.

    Yogaloft: My favorite place in PDC.
    Wonderful place to spend time while you’re in Playa. I’ve been coming for some time now. All levels are welcomed and accommodated for. The community here is committed and humbling. A few classes here during your mornings will set your vacation energy exactly where you want it to be. Healthy healthy place. Let yourself come again and again.

Yogaloft is much more than a yoga studio, it's family!! I was alone in Playa del Carmen, and there, I found a home!! I made so many good friends, shared so many experiences and learnt so much! Michael is a very conscious and demanding teacher. He gets to know well each of his students and he always pushes you to get the best of you through yoga. His classes are fun, as well as very powerful and dynamic. Helen classes are evolutive and bring you from level zero to level up! She is very funny and constantly makes you laugh as you pass from one asana to the other. Diana rocket classes are a meditative dance that will put you in touch with your inner core. I feel so blessed and grateful to have had the opportunity to practice in Yogaloft for almost a year; as well as to have shared such wonderful experiences and moments!! Thank you, thank you, thank you! Namaste, I love you all!! Mélanie Domínguez

I’m truly grateful to have discover this yoga studio in Playa.
Power vinyasa classes with Michael Gannon are incredible. It mixes breathwork, yoga, cardio and workout and really allows you to build strength and flexibility!
Ashtanga class with Michael Luginbühl are amazing too. You will practice the true and entire primary serie which is really rare and hard to find!

In general, I like the simplicity of the class and the teachers in this studio.
Really amazing classes for really good prices! Highly recommend!

The Yogaloft was an unexpected highlight of our trip to playa del carmen, we had the month pass and got full use out of it, great deal for your dollar. It’s a beautiful studio with plenty of space, lockers, showers, and place to leave your mat. You’ll always leave sweating and feeling ready for the day, we were beginners and felt comfortable and very challenged. Super fun how Gannons classes have music with great playlists!

What a fantastic place to press a reset button and clear my mind and body of all of life's clutter and anxieties! Originally I was in search of Bikram Yoga, I am very grateful to have found Michael Gannon's Yogaloft and his "Ashtanga Yoga Made Simple - A Practice For All Levels" book and teaching method. I have been here a week now and can see why Michael has such a following here in Playa Del Carmen and around the world. The other teachers and staff are amazing as well. This is probably one of the best Yoga studio's I have ever been to. If you are a Yoga enthusiast and are in Playa Del Carmen don't miss the chance to spend some time here with Michael and his team, I will be bringing my wife with me next time!

It's been great to experience classes that are different of my usual practice. The classes are challenging, well structured, and there is no way you won't sweat. It's definitely a crowded and popular studio, while still being charming and warm. I have tried the "Gannon Power Vinyasa" by Michael Gannon, "Vinyasa" by Ellen De Jonge, and "Guided Ashtanga" Michael Luginbühl . I recommend them all.

Haven’t done a ton of power vinyasa classes but this was without doubt the best of them. Up there with one of best classes of yoga I’ve done full stop. Michael is a great instructor and applied a great boot camp style for this intense class. A refreshing change. Great music, awesome flow and all round top class! Look forward to going back next time I’m in town.
