This intensive yoga training is designed for teachers looking to deepen their practices as well as recharge and relax. This will focus on building a stronger foundation while helping practices move toward more advanced expressions of asana and meditation techniques. Classes will range in style from Ashtanga Vinyasa to Yin, with special workshops to break down inversions, backbends, hip opening, as well as how to teach these poses to your students in an accessible way.
Casa Om has 10 beautiful bedrooms and bathrooms, a spacious and well-equipped yoga room, swimming pool, a rooftop dining area, and two kitchens. Bedrooms can set for either single or double occupancy, and have either a private bathroom or a bathroom shared between two rooms. Casa Om also has a new dorm that sleeps up to six people in bunk beds.
The rooms at Casa Om are comfortable and beautifully designed with air conditioning and fans. Drinking water and Wi-Fi are provided. Casa Om sleeps 24 and is across the street from the beach.
Puerto Morelos is home to one of the largest coral reefs in the world. Catch a boat out to the reef and snorkel for hours or just hang out on the calm beach and relax until your heart is content.
The deck across the street is a public space. Casa Om is at the quiet end of town and usually this space is nice for a morning class overlooking the ocean as the sun rises. Watch the waves crash on the coral reef in the distance or take this entrance to walk on the beach.
The dining area sits up to 16 people. It's a nice space to have an air conditioned dinner, meeting, or to play games.
If you want to watch the turtles or fish, as you dip your toes, the pond is your place. There is a small outdoor kitchen in the far corner as well.
Casa Om offers a number of nice spaces for groups to gather.
The palapa is great for dining, discussions, outdoor yoga, and meditation.
The yoga room is great for yoga as well as meeting space and use of a projector. Groups use it for watching movies, massage, and discussions.
The pool is a great space to cool off, hang out, or have a small group discussion by the pool.
This class will focus on meditation while holding Yin or Restorative yoga postures. This style is nice for those that struggle to sit still during meditation, giving your mind something else to focus on.

In this workshop, you will revisit the foundational elements and drills while exploring new variations and techniques. Expect to receive homework for when you go back home.
Practice whatever you would like with Irene’s guidance and assistance. If you’re not sure what to practice, don’t worry, she will give you drills to work on :)
