Flavio Lopez
Flavio grew up in Mexico City with a passion for innovative ideas and extreme sports and, like many people, he began practicing yoga to cure an injured ankle in 2001 while he was studying industrial engineering. He was fascinated at the way the human body mimicked the industrial machines he was studying and through his Hatha yoga practice, he correlated the repair of his body to a technical repair like the restoration of a machine. Flavio was certified to teach in 2011 and shortly after, he came to the Mexican Caribbean and Tulum to find more yoga and balance in his life.
Iris Campion
Ayurvedic Institute (Ayurveda Practitioner)
Iris completed her Sivananda yoga teacher training in 2001 in the Bahamas and has been teaching Hatha yoga ever since. She provides treatments, classes, and consultations in Ayurveda since graduating from California College of Ayurveda in 2005. She completed additional Ayurvedic studies at the Ayurvedic Institute in 2007 in New Mexico. Yoga and Ayurveda provided profound relief for Iris from chronic illnesses such as chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia from a young age.
Ricardo Castro
Ricardo is from Northern Mexico, a small town called Tampico. He developed his love for bodily movement and the interaction between body and mind through martial arts, loving both the traditional aspect and the competition. He began yoga to improve his alignment in competitions and immediately fell in love with its focus on balancing body and mind. He is new to teaching yoga but an old soul with years in martial arts and the mind-body connection. He received his training in 2015 in Vinyasa flow at Yoga Dicha in Tulum, where he now lives.
Mariana Borbolla
Mariana moved to Tulum just three years ago from Guadalajara, Mexico. She studied yoga in Playa del Carmen and received her certification in Vinyasa flow from Alan Montaño. Developing a dedicated and constant practice showed her the internal and external changes yoga brought about in herself. Subsequently, she decided to share the yoga practice as a teacher. Mariana shows her students how yoga can help them live less accelerated lives and be in the moment, thus healing physical and emotional wounds.
Esteban Pando
Esteban started traveling abroad in 2007 as a musician. Finding himself always attracted to the sea, in 2013 he decided to settle in the Mayan Riviera and develop his passion for water. Continuing with this development he moved to Utila, Honduras in 2014 to become a dive master and a free diving instructor. Ever since he finished his training in 2015 he returned to his second home in Mexico and has been guiding people in open water using scuba gear and sharing his passion and knowledge of free diving with an ever growing population.
