  • Review by Vanessa Vargas

    "If I ever had any doubts about Yoga and meditation, this studio quickly dissolved them. It's not just your regular Yoga, stretch here and there type of place. The owner, Lourdes, has combined mind, body and spirit into this great space she has created. Everyone was so welcoming and genuine and most of all, positive and encouraging. Having gone now for three days in a row, I feel back in focus and re-energized. I'm not one to normally comment, but in this case and in these times, everyone can use the light and love that the experience at this studio has to offer."

    "I just attended my first yoga class at Om Yoga - Restorative yoga. Lourdes was absolutely incredible. She is helpful, supportive, and motivational. I left feeling so peaceful and inspired. And what a great treat that the first class is free! Classes for returning students are $15 which is an outstanding price. This place is absolutely one of the best yoga studios I have been to and I highly recommend it!"

    "Lourdes is an amazing, inspiring yoga instructor. We booked a private session with her for a group of nine women. She was flexible on the location, she drove to us and we held the session right on the beach. She catered to the experience level of the group and everyone had a great time! Thanks, Lourdes!"

    "Best yoga classes I have ever experienced! Not only is it body yoga but also mind yoga. Lourdes really knows how to get to you in all levels. Her knowledge base is vast and her patience, sweetness, and encouraging smile make her the kind of instructor you know will always be there to help you succeed. Thank you so much for all the support!"

    "I absolutely enjoyed taking the deep stretch class with Lourdes. It was the first yoga class I have taken in quite a while. I felt comfortable and welcomed. She was so sweet, professional, and caring. She has calmness in her voice and emits the most positive energy through her words. The class was a little difficult as we held poses much longer than I have ever done before, but the feeling of super relaxation in myself and my body was totally worth it! I will absolutely continue to take classes with her and would highly recommend her services to any yogi at any level!"
