MJ's Vinyasa yoga class

A thoughtful, primal, playful, yet challenging flow balancing both yin and yang; energizing the body and balancing the mind. A sweaty, stretchy, joyful practice set to a soundtrack that will get you moving and breathing deeply. You are encouraged and will feel comfortable meeting your body wherever it is at each time you step onto your mat. While some previous experience with basic poses is helpful, you will have an abundance of loving space to modify and challenge as you choose.

MJ's Yin yoga class

Yin yoga focuses on the slow, patient, opening of the fascial layer of the body. The fascia is the connective tissue (shrink wrap) that underlies the skin, wraps the muscles, holds the bones together and is the conduit for the meridians through which energy flows. Over time chronic tightness of this layer causes stiffness and inflexibility restricting mobility and energy flow. Fascia responds differently than muscle and requires this slow approach to facilitate opening. This is a deeply meditative practice. No prior yoga experience required.

MJ's Resorative yoga class

Restorative yoga brings harmony to the body’s rhythms. It brings you to a state of “being,” not “doing,” while there is no movement, no effort, and the brain becomes quiet. Props are used to place the body in comfortable, relaxing poses. This enables the mind to clear, the breath to deepen, and the body to easily relax into balance. Restorative Yoga is the practice of deliberate stillness. This is when the healing begins.


Every Barre fitness class is fun and empowering class set to some motivating tracks. Classes begin with a warm up focusing on postural strength and alignment, followed by a series of upper body exercises using light weights. The ballet barre is used to sculpt the lower body, abs and for flexibility training. Then it is down to the mat for core work and a relaxing and invigorating final stretch.

    "The weeklong yoga retreat was sunny, peaceful, invigorating, and healthy. I enjoyed time with old friends, made new friends, learned lots of new yoga poses. Can't wait for next year - I'm already signed up."

    "I had the best week at our yoga retreat in Puerto Morelos. The ocean was a block away. Sunrise meditations were beautiful! Thanks to Melissa, there were several choices for daily yoga and exercise, not to mention the bead necklace and cooking classes. The atmosphere was inviting and warm. I feel I've made lifelong friends with everyone who was there! "

    "I had a wonderful week in Puerto Morelos at Casa Om on the yoga retreat. The days were well planned to include lots of yoga, good food, free time, and group activities. The group came together like magic. No one knew everyone, not even Melissa, most of us knew only one person when we started the week, but we the week ended with a true feeling of friendship and love for one another. I returned with a “yogic state of mind” that hasn’t dissipated yet. It was a truly amazing retreat."

    "My time at Casa Om was indeed inspiring. The yoga, the environment, the friendships formed and the food were beyond my expectations. Melissa made magic happen. From meditating on the beach at sunrise to enjoying the local music festival in town, I feel like I lived a lifetime. I am a happier, stronger & healthier person and this week will serve as a catalyst for a great future. "

    "Cannot say enough good things about Melissa's yoga retreat at Casa Om. I went with my mom and was immediately brought into a wonderful loving community, many of which have become friends beyond Mexico. I had been nervous before going, since I'm not much of a yogi, but Melissa's classes have something for everyone, and she challenged me in such positive ways. We spent our days lounging on the beach between classes, and eating wonderful home cooked meals by Chef Jajo. Anyone considering the retreat should absolutely go. "
