Puerto Morelos

Puerto Morelos is a laid back fishing village just 20 minutes south of Cancun. What visitors love about Puerto Morelos are lower prices and slower pace of life than its larger, busier neighbors like Cancun or Playa del Carmen. It means you get the best of both worlds; its the perfect spot for relaxation, a place to get away from it all and experience the simple Caribbean life, while still being centrally located to the surrounding attractions of the Riviera Maya. And there are some great cocktail bars too.

Casa Om

Casa Om is situated right across of one of the most beautiful beaches at the Riviera Maya, with crystal clear waters and no waves at all. Just how you would imagine the Caribbean at its best. The private location provides you with first class amenities, serene beaches just steps away, and a peaceful atmosphere. Dine on exquisite vegetarian cuisine, swim in fresh underground pools, or transform yourself in the ocean.

  • Breakfast
  • Dinner

  • Other dietary requirements on request
(If you have special dietary requirements its a good idea to communicate it to the organiser when making a reservation)


The bay of Akumal is famous for its unique visitors, the sea turtles. These can be found there all year long, feeding from the sea grass that grows in the bay. It is important not to touch the turtles, but you can swim very close to them and visit the coral reef of the area. In Akumal, there is also the Yalku lagoon, where cenote waters meet with seawater, creating a natural aquarium where you will find hundreds of colorful fishes.

Botanical gardens

You can go to the botanical gardens of Puerto Morelos for a nice walk in the shade as you explore this beautiful green park, look for spider monkeys, discover rugged temple ruins, and cross a swinging bridge. It takes about 90 minutes for this local adventure, and its the only place in the region where you will find preserved and pure indigenous nature.

Chichen Itza

The Mayan city of Chichen Itza is the jewel of the archeological sites in the Yucatan Peninsula. Considered one of the modern seven wonders of the world, Chichen Itza's more famous landmark is the main pyramid call. There is also a sacred cenote on the site where ancient Mayans used to perform a lot of sacrifices. It is a four-hour drive from Puerto Morelos, but visits can include a stop in the colonial town of Valladolid, where excellent vegetarian food can be found. The excursion will take a whole day, but this majestic site will not disappoint you.


If you feel like having a quiet night out you can catch a movie at one of many movie theaters in Cancun and Playa del Carmen. You can find 3D theaters in Cancun and Playa del Carmen and 4D theaters in Cancun. Films are played on their original language and with Spanish subtitles, but sometimes they are translated so make sure you check at the ticket office first.

Cirque Du Soleil

If you want to have a night full of emotions and imagination, the Riviera Maya is one of the few places in the world where you can experience a show hosted by this renowned circus. Reservations must be made, but Casa Om can help you with that.

Ek Balam

Ek Balam is one of the most ancient, and more recently restored Mayan cities in the area. You can rent a bike to ride across the jungle, go on top of the main pyramid and visit a refreshing cenote full of geological formations and a very fun zip line. Its only a two hours drive from Puerto Morelos, and on the way you can also visit the colonial town of Valladolid.

Fine dining

Puerto Morelos has an excellent variety of restaurants, ranging from Uruguayan food, vegetarian, Indian, Mexican, fusion gourmet, and more. Most places offer a fish and sea food menu, but you can always ask them to prepare something vegetarian. You can find a wider variety of options in Playa del Carmen and Cancun, as well as numerous organic stores of fine delicatessen products from the region.

Paddle boarding

Thanks to the coral reef, Puerto Morelos has excellent water conditions allowing you to enjoy this friendly exercise while contemplating on an unusual panorama off the shore. It will just take you a few hours, but the silence alone might be exactly what you need.


As one of the world's premier tourist destinations, the shopping options in the Riviera Maya are impressive. You will find everything from ultra-chic designer stores and famous brand names to flea markets and souvenir shops. There are many shopping malls in Cancun and Playa del Carmen, all offering the avid shopper a real treat. However, if you are looking for real and authentic Mexican handmade gifts you can go over the Market 28th in Cancun as well as to the Quinta Avenida in Playa del Carmen, which is a pedestrian street where restaurants, shops, art galleries and various services are located. Every Thursday, during the evening, arts and cultural bazaars are installed along Quinta Avenida where you can find and get original pieces directly from their authors.


Puerto Morelos is located in front of a National Marine Park, which includes the Mesoamerican coral reef, the second largest reef in the world. There are amazing scuba diving and snorkeling spots right in front of Casa Om. You can walk from Casa Om to the beach, get on a boat, snorkel on the reef, and come back in less than three hours. There is also snorkeling excursions in Isla Mujeres and Contoy Island, but consider that going there will take a whole day. A reservation has to be made previously.

Tulum ruins

The Tulum ruins are just two hours south of Puerto Morelos. It is one of the main ceremonial centers of the ancient Mayans. Today, the archeological site is one of the most visited locations of the Riviera Maya. Its location and turquoise mythic waters will not disappoint any expectations. Casa Om can help you arrange transportation that will pick you up, take you there, help you buy the tickets, wait, and take you back. To avoid big crowds Casa Om recommends you go very early and avoid weekends.

Whale sharks

Do you want to swim with the largest fish in the world? In the Riviera Maya, you can do it. From mid May to mid September, this area has the privilege to receive the largest migration of the mighty whale sharks. Casa Om can help you make a reservation for the transportation to pick you up and take you to Punta Sam, where you will get on a boat that will take you in to open waters, where the sharks can be found. The boat ride is about an hour long and, to avoid hurting the sharks, sunscreen is not allowed before swimming with them.

Xcaret amusement parks

Xel-ha and Xplor Xcaret amusement parks are known for the quality of their shows, delicious food, huge aquariums, and beautiful locations. From adventure to nature, Xcaret parks have it all. For the more adventurous, Xplor offers underground caves, ATVs, and thrilling zip lines. Lovers of nature will enjoy Xel-has incredible sea life but, for a more complete experience, Xcaret main park and its famous night show will take you through the history of Mexican culture, ranging from ancient civilization to modern identity. Food is included inside of the parks, so it's best for you to plan a whole day for your visit.

Relax and refresh yourself with a spa treatment right at Casa Om. The in-house massage therapist can provide a relaxing massage or Ayurvedic treatment, a great compliment to a yoga retreat for a total body blissful experience.

  • Review by Erica

    "The Blissful Bergerac 8-Day Yoga Retreat was an overall wonderful experience. Our yoga instructor Debbi Murphy provided excellent sessions tailored to the group's levels, and we learned a lot from her through insights and stories about yoga and its many physiological and spiritual aspects. The chateau provided a perfect setting with plenty of space for solo time but intimate dining and common areas for socializing with the group. The food was hearty and healthy, and the staff was accommodating and friendly. The multiple excursions, from the local market trip to the castle tour to the vineyard tasting, were well organized and interesting. I would recommend this retreat, or one structured in a similar manner, to anyone looking for a true getaway. Regards." website, edited

    "Shannon's guidance with each yoga session was always on target for our needs - the chateau and it's staff were amazing; the food and wine a treat beyond expectations; the location breathtaking; the tours incredibly enjoyable and enlightening... The Travel Yogi has always done an incredible job in packaging the tours I have so far enjoyed. Yes, I will be looking at their other offered destinations."

    "I have led 5 retreats now with The Travel Yogi and I keep coming back for more! Not only do they curate amazing trips, they are extremely professional, pay attention to the smallest details, and truly go above and beyond in every way to create incredibly unique experiences and memories that last a lifetime. In March, I partnered with the Travel Yogi to lead a 10-day yoga + safari retreat to Kenya, and words alone can't do the trip justice. Our adventure literally began right when we touched down in Nairobi. We had group transportation and a guide waiting for us in the airport and within 10 minutes of leaving the airport, I had already spotted my first wild giraffe on the ride to Emakoko Lodge. The beautiful ride to the lodge was through a nature conservancy, where we also got up and close and personal with a lion, zebras, a hippo, rhinos and gazelles. And it was just the first day! I thought that would be hard to top, but each day only got better. The accommodations were top notch, the food was incredible, the guides were so knowledgable and friendly, the game drives were out of this world, and we got to do yoga in some of the most stunning natural settings on the planet. The Travel Yogi is bar none the best in the business!"

    "Jen and Courtney made booking my trip so easy. They were so helpful, answering all my questions and making sure I understood everything and was well-informed. The Travel Yogi staff is amazing! The sailing excursion was the best. The staff at Santorini Sailing were so wonderful. They definitely showed us a good time, fed us well and made sure we were comfortable and safe. It was so great. Elizabeth's attention to your needs and concerns about your yoga practice is a 10 on a scale of 1-10. She is open to teaching you new things and is very helpful for helping you at whatever yoga practice level you are on. She is fantastic! I enjoyed the whole experience. With this being my first trip internationally and my first yoga retreat, I was so blown away by Elizabeth and her knowledge, the amazing ladies on the trip and how easy Jen and Courtney made everything! Please keep being your amazing, wonderful selves! If I can ever help out or volunteer to assist with making The Travel Yogi experience as wonderful for others, as it was for me, I would love to!"

I am eternally grateful for the relationships that Elizabeth and The Travel Yogi helped establish. I had flight issues and The Travel Yogi and Elizabeth stayed with me and communicated with me every step of the way. I truly felt as though they cared. They even got me a cake for my birthday! I felt so loved and appreciated. What an amazing way to bring in my 30th!"

There was a good balance of excursions and relaxation time. The food was amazing! I think that the trip is actually a pretty good deal, given that it includes most of your food, transfers, hotel, yoga, etc...and there is no planning required of the traveler! I enjoyed the relaxation, yoga, and meeting new people."

She is also just very calming and easy to be around. I very much enjoyed her as an instructor and travel companion. The second cenote which was about 30-40 minutes away with the cliff jumping was amazing. Our guides and drivers were amazing. They really went out of their way to be customer service oriented"

    "Enthusiastic and helpful yoga teacher. Listened to the group and tailored accordingly. Locations showed different parts of the country, which was nice (e.g., city vs. countryside). Wonderful hikes. Visiting local schools, houses and monasteries. Unique experience which will be very memorable. Would recommend using the same guide as he was able to organize some pretty cool stuff for us outside the itinerary. He was also knowledgeable and approachable. The driver was friendly and informative too."

  • Review by Stacy O.

    "No need to tell you how amazing Alexa is but I am happy to sing her praises. She made us all feel special and loved and allowed me to deepen my practice in this awesome setting (I especially adored the outdoor sessions in Punakha). She's such a gem! In general, accommodations better than expected in this LDC, and the service was awesome -- friendly, attentive and accommodating without fail. It was a packed program, allowing for virtually no down time, but I would not have wanted it any other way as there is so much to see and experience in breathtaking Bhutan. And you absolutely must retain Tashi Phuntsho as a The Travel Yogi guide -- he is not only extremely knowledgeable about his country (history, traditions, culture, politics, trends, etc.), but also a compassionate, generous person who never hesitated to fill all of our random requests and meet all of our needs, and always with his huge, heartwarming smile! So very many aspects of it were life-affirming and awe-inspiring. I'm really very grateful that it was so much more than a yoga retreat as the Himalayan culture and hiking cannot be missed!"

    "JL is exceptional! I am so thankful that I've found her. Each and every class was spot on and just exactly what I needed in my practice. Sometimes, with other teachers, I've found myself tuning out or predicting the next move ready for the class to be over. Not one single time did this happen with JL. She is truly amazing. The food was really awesome! I was a little hesitant about the vegetarian fare and no alcohol policy. I honestly didn't miss it (meat/alcohol) much and there were plenty of bars within walking distance. The staff was very friendly and accommodating and I enjoyed them. Marcela and Andres were really personable and accommodating."

  • Review by Kat F.

    "JL seriously made this retreat happen for me. I've only been practicing yoga for about a year...and after I expressed interest in a retreat, she encouraged me to do one. I didn't know anyone besides her going - and I realize now that that's very normal on retreats - but for me, that was super scary and out of the norm for me! JL was so amazing and encouraging leading up to the retreat. She introduced me to people in class who'd also be going. She's just so positive and awesome! On the retreat- she was so accessible...hung out with us, gave us so much advice and really was just one of the group! I loved every moment of the trip and was so grateful to be there! It seriously was the best experience I've ever had! Casa Om was so amazing! The managers were so helpful always, and the rooms were great! The chef staff was seriously the best. I loved everything about it!! Our tour guide, Marcella, could not have been better. She was so energetic and personable...and you could tell she really loved what she does! She was so involved.. the excursions were awesome! Every time I had a question about anything, it was either already listed, or it was so fast to get a response via email. I loved that! I felt so great and confident in everything leading into the retreat. Thank you for being so great on that! The group was truly amazing. Everyone was so nice, relaxed, friendly, just glad to be there! The location, resort, and staff were amazing. I loved every second!"

  • Review by Holly W.

    "I honestly had the most amazing, life-changing experience on this retreat and JL was the driving factor behind that. Her voice corrections and ability to read the room and still keep an eye on the individual is amazing. Personally, she is warm, caring and her passion for yoga beyond just the 'body stuff' has changed the way I see yoga and myself - she's had such an impact on me. Being one of only three attendees who didn't know JL beforehand - I'm amazed at the close connection she built with me in a only a week with another 11 yogis there feeling the same! Marcella, our Eco Tours guide, is the best guide I have come across in my tours all over the world - very knowledgeable, passionate about her country and the Mayan people (especially with her work with the villages all over). Overall, everything (including Andres the driver) was amazing and thought through. The response time was super fast and Courtney answered all my questions beyond the usual yoga retreat Qs - and was super pleasant, knowledgeable and all her answers were considered based on what she'd learned about me and what I would most like/need. Something I'm not at all used to (maybe an Australian thing!) but it made all the difference. Everything was set up so well that it encouraged great practice and then lots of opportunities to get to know the group beyond the usual small talk - JL's influence was a huge factor in that of course, plus the organized tours and the regular times to eat together and hang out. I feel very lucky that I stumbled upon The Travel Yogi - I got a personal recommendation to check out the online videos on Gaiam and from there stumbled on the retreats page! This was a perfect coincidence of the location I wanted, at the time I wanted (my birthday!). The written testimonials and professionalism of the Travel Yogi site pushed me to book (and the motivating notice that there weren't many spaces left!) I'll be sure to recommend to friends in Australia and the U.K. - as it was the absolute perfect way to turn 30!"

    "Liz was absolutely wonderful and attentive to each student's needs, adjustments, and desires by listening and accommodating to the day's activities and overall well-being. My yoga practice strengthened and developed through the intimate workshops and sessions. The hosts at each location were amazing. Simon and Daisy at Sosian were attentive to everyone in the group, remembering every little detail down to how we take our coffee! I feel like we really got a customized and intimate safari experience here. Their energy was so great and it felt like they became family. It was really sad to leave Sosian. We also had a great time at Naboisho. Moses and the staff were attentive and provided a sense of safety at the tents. The group seemed to really appreciate and find value in the trip to the Samburu Village and the local school. Needless to say, the trip to the Elephant Orphanage was heart-pumping with overflowing love. I had no idea we would be able to interact with the elephants. The staff was really helpful, informative, and kind. Among The Travel Yogi and other comparative yoga safari retreats, I hands down had the best experience working with Jen at The Travel Yogi. I can't thank Jen enough for her insightful consideration and help in the process. Jen was responsive, thorough, and accessible at all times - by email or phone. Her energy, kindness, and passion radiated in every communication I had with her and I definitely had my questions! I am impressed with the research and selection of organizations, hotels, and partners. I am a big advocate for responsible travel and was so excited to be a part of a life-changing adventure that supports environmental and conservation efforts. Plus, there's primal yoga! Every day felt like a dream. I am so thankful I took pictures that pinch myself and remind me this experience was real! I signed up for this trip by myself and left with newfound friendships in my fellow yogis and with our guides and hosts at each stay. Thank you! The partners at Natural Habitat, the accommodations, the hospitality of the staff and hosts - I can't say enough good things about everyone and every place we encountered during our retreat. I am extremely impressed with our guide Jackson from Natural Habitat. From the first day arriving in Kenya to the last minute at the airport, Jackson made this trip incredible. His knowledge, experience, background, and passion in everything he does truly shines. He is someone that is going to changing the world and to be with him on this retreat was an absolute honor. Whether luck of the draw or intended, we really got the best here. Jackson is an amazing guide, prestigious teacher, honorable leader, and kind human being. In retrospect, this was an amazing deal as the organizations and staff were highly invested in conservation efforts and wildlife and environmental education - which are causes I strongly care about. On top of the astounding, breathtaking experience, this made the cost of the trip worth every single penny and more!"

Sansara provided one of the best places to do yoga I've ever experienced! You guys do a great job of keeping us informed before, during and after! You are incredibly responsive and helpful, both of which are very much appreciated! The group vibe was wonderful, Sansara is an amazing and incredibly special place and Panama is one of the coolest countries I've ever visited. "

    "Mark Moliterno is truly unbelievable. My week of practicing and learning with Mark was truly life-changing for me. I knew going in that his yoga voice program was going to be different than a typical yoga workshop, but really had no idea how profoundly his program would change me. "

    "Imparting information during his classes was very detailed and easy to follow. Working with our breath, bodies and voice was more impactful than any yoga class I've ever taken. The integration and changes that happened as we learned to add specific sounds to our practice was so exciting. Everyone in the class evolved in some way as the week progressed. The way of teaching is fun, very informative, interactive, peaceful, and strengthening, and for me personally, an awakening."

    "Mark is compassionate, knowledgeable, gifted teacher, and practical in his application of knowledge on all levels-physical, mental, intellectual, and spiritual.I've never had better food in my life and my husband, who was worried about the 'vegetarian' food, said he would eat this diet if the food was this good. The staff were attentive, genuine, kind, and friendly. We watched whales tail slap, breech, and spout while doing yoga. There were many kinds of birds and wild life to constantly observe. The masseuse was a lifesaver, intuitive, kind, and talented. Saved me from getting sore muscles. Everything was meticulously clean, which I so appreciated. I've never stayed at a place kept so pristine. So great that snorkeling and sea kayaking were included as part of the trip. It was amazing and the guides were wonderful. Learned a lot in the cooking class - so glad that was offered. So many choices of things to do - could not do it all, so will have to return every year for years to come! This location was a fabulous choice. Thanks for choosing it for us. The staff were very helpful and friendly-made me feel excited about the experience, gave positive energy through their interactions. Thanks so much! "

    "Vytas teaches a very challenging class, and I loved it. His sequencing was extremely intelligent and prepared us for the more advanced poses.Sansara was amazing! One of my favorite yoga retreats ever, and I've been to many. I loved the location. It's so nice to have some local folks in the vicinity, and some other restaurants/bars.My room was beautiful. Bed was super comfy! Bathroom was luxurious. Loved my shower! Loved the yoga palapa! I love practicing by the beach! Layout of the rest of the retreat was so comfortable and intuitive. Loved it."

    "Without question this is one of the top getaways of my life. Mia and Patti in collaboration to conduct mind-body-soul yogi experiences have me convinced I must schedule more retreats!"

    "Vytas really made this an exceptional experience not only as a yoga instructor but as an inspiring human being and leader. From challenging us inside the yoga room to assigning each one with a secret yogi as a way to connect selflessly with one another and also enhancing the group dynamic with games and meaningful conversation.Exceeded expectations in every level. Besides the dream location and the outstanding yoga classes, the connection between the group of people that were part of this trip took the energy and experience of the retreat to a whole other level."

    "Erica's physiology knowledge will be hard to be matched by anyone. This translates into very sophisticated detailed classes. Her roundedness with other alternative healing methods, combined with her physiology and yoga sequencing knowledge and her natural leadership and charisma, puts her in a league of her own."

    "Wonderful classes! She takes the time to make sure each person is getting the most out of every single class. Challenging for the ones that want it and offers modifications for the ones that need it. Best instructor I've ever had.I have a food allergy that the staff and chefs gave extra care to and made the experience that much more enjoyable and worry free.Details are extremely important to me so the travel yoga exceeds expectations with letting me know every detail about the trip. I recommend The Travel Yogi Gaiam to anyone because of how secure I feel with how transparent everything is."

    "This was the most amazing trip of my life. First, Jen at the Travel Yogi made every step of the way in booking the trip and my airfare so easy. She sat on the phone with me on the weekend looking through all of the flights and giving me advice on the airports and different routes. She was unbelievably helpful and eased my fears. The way this retreat is structured is spectacular. The excursions every day, all day long and the blend of yoga in the morning and the evening was perfect. We also had one day where we could choose our own adventure which was awesome. The excursions were really quality and so much fun. Liz Arch, our yoga instructor was phenomenal. She has such a warm and playful spirit and so much knowledge in so many areas of wellness. She geared the yoga each day to the needs of the group and even did a couple workshop style classes for inversions and arm balances. She also did restoratives when we needed that, and gave us a taste of her own brand, Primal Yoga. The accommodations were wonderful and the owner and house manager of the Semilla Verde property were knowledgeable, helpful and went so out of their way to care for us. The group itself was an amazing, adventurous, warm, funny, diverse group of humans that I am looking forward to calling friends for a very long time. I was terrified to leave the US and go to this tiny place so far away, but I am so glad that I did, it was truly life changing and I highly recommend this trip for everyone!! Thank you Jen, Courtney, Liz, Rob and Rafi !!! xxo"

    "Being fairly new to yoga & only practicing regularly for over 1 year, JL has set the bar high. This was my very first yoga retreat and I'm blessed to have found her through The Travel Yogi. Before we even met, I already felt warm through her generosity... gifts sent to her students: Juil sandals & chakra root scented oil. I arrived to Blue Osa in Costa Rica and received the first of many hugs from JL. She gives the best hugs! She welcomed each of her students with a personalized reiki infused mala bracelet. In the short week with her, she was nothing short of inviting, personable, and all smiles. And thank you to The Travel Yogi for being so thorough in preparation for this retreat! How could I not book with The Travel Yogi again? Namaste!" website, edited

    "If I could hire Jen Hoddevik from The Travel Yogi to be my personal travel agent/life organizer, it would be worth whatever amount of money it cost! Iceland was my fourth retreat with The Travel Yogi, and exactly as it was in all previous trips, every detail was handled by Jen and her expert staff. I didn't have to worry for a second once from the point I arrived at the airport and saw the driver holding a sign with my name until he brought me back there almost a week later. The excursions were first rate-all we had to do was show up for the bus-and the cost of the trip was extremely reasonable with all of the meals, yoga and sights it included. Yoga with Elizabeth Rowan was perfect to start our day and wind down our evenings. This trip was 5 star all the way, and I can highly, highly recommend it to any adventurous travelers! Thank you again to The Travel Yogi and Elizabeth Rowan for a wonderful experience." website, edited

    "Regarding Galapagos, June 2015 with the incredible instructor, Liz Arch. This was my first yoga retreat and I'm worried that it spoiled me for all future ones! I had such a fantastic time. The Galapagos islands were utterly amazing: tortoises, iguanas, sea lions, hiking, and snorkeling... not to mention the AMAZING food and accommodations at Semilla Verde. I have super strict dietary restrictions and they were able to make me something healthy and delicious every day. We were also very fortunate to have a splendid group of Yoga enthusiasts who I think will be good friends for years to come. Courtney was a wonderful hostess - she made us all feel safe, comfortable and well cared for. Thanks to everyone for a trip of a lifetime!! I'd join you again in a heartbeat."

    "My Baja Travel Yogi trip was really the trip of a lifetime. I was unsure of what to expect and felt blown away by both the location/facility and the detailed planning. I could truly relax into the experience and enjoy Baja because I never had to worry with a thing! As an obsessive planner, I was amazed that I could actually unplug and get so much out of this trip. I will definitely be planning another trip through The Travel Yogi in the future..."

    "A trip to the Galapagos is a trip of a life time. Jenniferlyn Chiemingo, our trip Yoga Teacher and Leader, made my experience beyond my expectations. Jenniferlyn is an extraordinary inspiring and motivating yoga teacher. She inspired me to be adventurous and make the most of the nature around me. She also helped me to reach and experiment beyond my typical yoga practice. Her guided meditations were very provoking and will last in my mind and spirit forever!! Jenniferlyn has a shining energy that is honest, refreshing and contagious!! Her attitude will make any trip, any location, an extraordinary event. I am super fortunate because Jenniferlyn is has my hometown yoga teacher. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to travel with her. Namaste!!"

    "I could not have asked for a better experience with Travel Yogi from start to finish. Jen and Liz were so helpful and communicative through the entire process. Every detail is taken care of, so there is no stress in traveling, which is rare these days! It was a magical experience at Prana Del Mar with Alexa Silvaggio as the yoga instructor. The accommodations, peaceful surroundings, delicious food and inspiring yoga made it one of the best trips I have ever had, and with a group of strangers no less! I'm absolutely hooked and cannot wait to book another retreat through the Travel Yogi! Thank you so much, Jen and Liz!"

    "The Santorini retreat was absolutely perfect! From the controlled yoga, amenities, and travel assistance to the uncontrolled staff, food, and weather, everything was perfect! I enjoyed practicing yoga with Angel in the mornings and evenings, her style of teaching was perfect for a retreat get away (calm yet challenging, with stretching and spiritual vibes infused)!The staff at Rocabella could not have been better! They were incredibly accommodating, friendly, and spoke English. Upon arriving at the retreat, all yogis who were attending became instant friends, such a great feeling! I felt safe and well prepared as a solo traveler and felt like I knew who to contact at all times if I had a question or needed something! There was free wi-fi at the resort which I really liked because it felt nice to have a connection to home, but still be in such a far away place! Thank you all again for letting me in on this amazing piece of heaven that I will remember forever!"

    "The retreat was amazing. Thank you to you and your team for selecting such a beautiful location in Bali for yoga, rest and relaxation, and exploration. The staff at Soulshine was incredible friendly and helpful. Ogoum in particular went above and beyond to show us around Ubud, explaining customs, traditions, and answering any questions we had. The facilities were clean and well-kept. I always felt safe and welcome. Thanks again for your work!"

    "It was so awesome and well organized that I didn't even appreciate how well everything was being handled during the retreat. I did a 4 day organized trip to Isabela Island after the retreat, and in comparison I realized how lucky we had been to have such good guides and hosts and helpful staff. Galapagos is wonderful no matter what, but it was definitely worth it to have every so well taken care of during our stay."

    "I recently went to Bali with the Ashley Albrand via The Travel Yogi. Everything about the experience was amazing, from the initial engagement with Jennifer to the follow up and finally arriving in Bali and attending the retreat. Traveling internationally can be a hassle, but Jennifer made sure that all the details were taken care of pre-trip and was available if we had any questions during the retreat. Soulshine was amazing, like a little bit of luxury paradise in the middle of the rice paddies. Ashley was phenomenal, an amazing teacher leading a life changing experience in the middle of paradise. I can't recommend the Travel Yogi enough and I will definitely book another yoga vacation with them."

    "I cannot imagine all the time and energy that went into planning this amazing retreat, but I thank you so much from the very bottom of my (jet-lagged) heart! It was quite a transformative experience, in every sense, and I felt that I was aboard a very tightly manned ship. It was a very well-balanced vacation, with just enough yoga and Ubud city time. I do hope that our paths cross someday soon, maybe on the other side of the world! "
