Great central location, very clean, peaceful atmosphere, with knowledgeable and personable teachers, Ser Om Shanti has been my home studio in Tamarindo for the past six weeks. Every class has been challenging but do-able for all levels. Mariel, Tiziana and Fabiola are all fluently bilingual, classes are all in English and Spanish. I’ve loved being able to continue with my yoga practice while in Paradise for the winter.

We have spent about a month yearly in Tamarindo for the past 18 years....and once I found Mariel at Ser Om Shanti Yoga (I think 8-10 years ago) I have been thrilled to learn and practice my yoga here. From beginners to long time yoga believers Mariel has the knowledge, passion and teaching skills to provide every one in class a path to improving their yoga knowledge. She is an intense learner and teacher.....the best combination! She personally introduces herself to anyone new to the class and inquires about their yoga knowledge level and any physical limitations. This allows her to provide individualized feedback to every class member. If you are in Tamarindo - take a class, challenge yourself and feel great at the end of the class, I have taken classes with at least 15 different people over the years......Mariel is clearly at the top of my “yoga teachers list.” And just for the record....I have been on USA Medicare (starting age 65)for a few yearrs now.......proving age is not a limitation to learning yoga!

Thanks, I appreciate your opinion so much. It inspires me!
Students with your beautiful attitude and dedication motivate me to continue learning and improving.
I have been teaching for more than 30 years and I continue doing it with the same passion, vocation and love as the first day. With more experience and maturity. And with the awareness of being only a channel of light of these ancient teachings.
It makes me happy that my students feel it and enjoy it. We walk this path of Yoga together.

Thank you for choosing to return to Ser Om Shanti Yoga Studio every year. Waiting to meet again in a few months to continue talking together! Namasté! Mariel

Mariel operates a beautiful second floor yoga studio in the heart of downtown Tamarindo. I booked a private lesson with her in advance a few days before arriving, and the entire process, from communicating and scheduling, to the intimate and detailed nature of the class itself, and the atmosphere at Ser Om Shanti were 5 Stars! She was very accomodating in switching my class from my original location at my hotel to the studio. During the 1 hour 15 min lesson, she walked me through proper breathing techniques, hip alignment, and how to get into proper posture in various poses. Mariel's attention to detail, calming attitude and consideration for her students are top notch. She even agreed to take photos and video of me during our lesson so I could remember what we worked on. I took her Level 1-2 class following my lesson and was not disappointed! Mariel is the kind of yoga teacher who tries to remember everyone's name in the class and actively walks around to help her students. She is makes sure that everyone feels comfortable. I hope one day to return to Tamarindo and take another class at her lovely studio! Namaste :)

If I could only use two words, i would choose VERY PROFESSIONAL.
I was looking for a yoga teacher that would: teach me, challenge me show me my errors and correct my posture. That is exactly what i found at Ser Om Shanti studio, each teacher gives personal attention no matter how many people show up, and for me, this is the most important thing I look for in a yoga studio.
