Testimonials

  • Review by Matilde Juliette from Denver Colorado

    "Victor Varana taught Kalam-Balam - The Path of the Snake and the Jaguar - tying the ancient knowledge both to the practice in our minds as well as for our bodies. Combining methods from two of his passions, yoga and Aikido, he moved us through honestly the most unique sequence I’ve probably ever experienced."

  • Review by Tanushka from Denver Colorado

    "I recommend you try the yoga at this place too. I know there are many hotels that offer yoga, but the guy who teaches here is excellent - perhaps one of the best yoga classes I've ever taken. It's 15 USD per class, and there are daily classes at 10:30."

    "I feel very privileged to have had the opportunity to do yoga three times a week with Victor. He knows how to make yoga not only challenging, but fun too. He is always such a happy person that it wears off on others around him. To know him is to love him."

  • Review by Lynn Stewart Stevenson from British Columbia, Canada

    "Victor is an amazing yoga instructor that is able to modify his yoga moves to meet all age groups and personal limitations. I have been very fortunate to work with Victor. In the past six weeks and three sessions a week, he has never duplicated any of the moves. He encourages us to reach our fullest potential even with our personal imitations. Thank you Victor for being such a dedicated, caring and experienced instructor. I look forward to every class."

  • Review by Eva-Maria Hahler from Montreal, Quebec

    "People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. - Maya Angelou"

    "The fact that I am writing this testimonial over a year after I have been on a yoga retreat with Victor in Tulum is a testimonial in and of itself. The fact that I am taking the time in a very busy moment in my life is an additional testimonial to Victor's awesomeness. Would I write this testimonial two years after the retreat, it would still be as enthusiastic as I felt leaving Tulum two summers ago. Tulum has changed my life before, but somehow Victor always seems to play a role in it. I can feel his heart smile while I am sitting here writing about his retreat, in a far away country, way after our last encounter. His open heart and creative mind together have led to the creation of the most wonderful and inspiring Yoga retreat I have ever been on- with ripple effects until today and for a long time to come. Victor's first ever retreat incorporated a mix of spirituality, creativity and power. Ingredients: a knowledgeable, kind and compassionate master, wonderful participants, nurtured and nourished by Victor's overflowing love, a beautiful beach setting, some Aztec healers and a Temazcal, to name just a few. Every day was a surprise. You know when you open a Kinder chocolate and you don't know what to expect. This was Victor's retreat. Obviously I cannot tell you what to expect, as I don't want to spoil any surprises, but I can say as much: every day was more awesome than the previous one and at the end of it all, we were all beaming of pure joy and happiness. Victor helped us peel away all those layers around our true selves - those beautiful selves that were there all along. Peeling away doubts and worries, transforming us into warriors, lovely powerful warriors, who knew that anything was possible. Just knew and still know. I for one wrote my doctoral thesis in the months after the retreat and Victor's magic worked its way all the way, giving me the courage to fight right through this arduous journey. The same happens to this date. At times when I doubt, even in moments of deep exhaustion, I remember one of the many activities and I find strength within - I remember how I felt when we practiced together. I felt powerful, playful, joyful. I felt loved. I felt One. Victor, I am forever grateful for your warm heart that plants seeds and patiently encourages a blossom to search for the light. I will never forget how you made me feel, Victor, and I am looking forward to the next time we meet and practice, play and pray, laugh and joke. You are the best and I truly miss you. Thank you, brother, In Lak'ech."

  • Review by Elissa Heyman from Santa Fe, New Mexico

    "Victor created a wonderful week for our group that I’ll always remember: a week in paradise with a true teacher. Being in Victor’s classes with his level of commitment made me understand more about spiritual development and what it entailed. We went on really fun and fascinating excursions, ate great food, and swam in the Caribbean while still living a beautiful life of practicing yoga, and learning Mayan and Eastern spiritual traditions."

  • Review by Aviva S. Bernat MD, from Los Angeles, California

    "I gave myself this workshop and week at Maya Tulum as a 45th birthday present and it was one of the best weeks of my life. It was deeply relaxing, wonderfully joyful, and physically, emotionally and spiritually nourishing and enlivening. The workshop that Victor created was amazing. He put so much heart and creative thought into every detail. He planned the journey on which he lead us with such care and insight. He wove physically challenging and deeply restorative yoga into each day and integrated the yoga with the energetic and natural world. I tried things I never thought I could possibly do and ended up loving them and feeling very empowered. He also incorporated ceremony and ritual into the week and it was a transformative opportunity to participate in the Mayan Temezcal ritual. He also introduced his unique style of Alquimia yoga, which was a blast! Victor is also so multi talented and brought those gifts of chanting/kirtan, photography, multimedia to each of us. I was so inspired and impressed, I asked him to design my professional website. Victor’s wisdom and playful spirit was evident in all that we did. He chose meaningful and fun excursions that were also connected to our journey for the week. He introduced different styles of yoga and challenged us to push ourselves in a really gentle and supportive way. He taught by example, which inspired me. His breadth of knowledge and commitment to this work was evident. The gifts of that week continue to emerge in my life. I have such gratitude for Victor, my fellow participants, and the exquisite Maya Tulum."

    "Thank you, thank you, thank you!"

  • Review by Janet Goldman from Saint Louis, Missouri

    "Spending a week on a yoga retreat with Victor Verano is amazing, empowering, and fun! Each day was different and presented a new challenge for me. What a powerful and exhilarating feeling it was for me to do postures that I thought I was unable to do. I really got out of my head and into my body. My batteries were totally charged to go back into the world in a more loving and peaceful way."

    "The Kirtan session led by Victor the last night was strong and transformative. I would highly recommend this yoga retreat and I am looking forward to his next one."

  • Review by Sandy from Washington DC

    "I came here after researching remote beach resorts and seeing that they offered yoga, healthy food, and no TV or Internet. I was in desperate need to relax and recharge. Maya Tulum exceeded all of my expectations. Tulum is spectacularly beautiful and there is an indescribably strong and peaceful energy here. The yoga is challenging and the teacher really passionate. Tania and Victor are standout instructors who are excellent at both the yoga and meditation. The food is amazing. Not a single bad meal. Fish tacos, veg sandwich, guajillo fish and granola are my favorites but honestly it's all so good, fresh and filling. Don't let the vegetarian thing fool you the food is so satisfying."

    "If you're looking to restore yourself and feel healthier in body, spirit, and mind, this is the place."

  • Review by a traveler from Minneapolis

    "We attended eight classes in our five days (every one that was available while we were there). Our instructors were Maria, Victor, Joanne and Adrianna. We were happy with all of them. Victor was the most unique and his class was a bit more of an “experience.” The yoga in general was not much different than what you would find in the US. We averaged about eight students per class. Each class was 75 minutes long."

  • Review by A. Farley from Las Vegas, Nevada

    "I went to 3 a.m. yoga classes (two with Maria, one with Victor). The yoga studio is beautiful. One large room, lots of windows, ceiling fans, and well-stocked with mats, blankets, small towels, blocks, antiseptic spray, and drinking water. In fact, I've never been to a nicer studio. The practice was really nice, very professional, and restful and challenging at the same time. Neither Maria nor Victor take themselves too seriously - they were light hearted and calm and made me feel very comfortable. They both spent time checking postures and assisting students with their poses. I wish I could transport them and the studio here to Las Vegas!"

  • Review by Laura Cruz Navarro from Playa del Carmen, Mexico

    "La primera clase de Yoga que tuve fue con el maestro Victor, no tenía idea de lo que se trataba, solo me di a la tarea de ir asistiendo; fue gracias a la paciencia y dedicación que recibí, que poco a poco fui avanzando en las posturas."

    "Fui experimentando el Yoga través de la práctica sin teoría alguna, guiada solo con las indicaciones de mi profesor, hoy en día cuando hago Yoga escucho sus recomendaciones: “hombros separados del cuello, todo tu cuerpo está activo, la rodilla nunca debe sobre pasar el pie, etc, etc.”."

    "He escuchado muchas versiones del significado de Yoga para mí el es entrar en un estado de meditación, viviendo el aquí el ahora basándose en la auto contemplación que te lleva a la comunión de mente, cuerpo y espíritu."

    "Deseche el viejo paradigma de ejercicios extenuantes basados frases tales como: “si no hay dolor, no hay ganancia”; el Yoga me ha enseñado a escuchar mi cuerpo y de esta manera respetarlo y a valorarlo."

    "Victor con entrega y amor me abrió las puertas para recorrer el camino del Yoga, hoy recorro este camino que tiene maravillosos paisajes, ya sea que me deleite con uno solo o continúe avanzando para luego regresar al anterior o continúe caminando, el Yoga es un camino sin fin."

    "Gracias Victor por mostrarme este camino al Ser."

    "Después de un intensivo entrenamiento bajo las enseñanzas de Víctor, tome la fortaleza que requería para dejar de fumar, y volver a valorar el equilibrio entre la mente, y el cuerpo! Está de más puntualizar cada elemento que transformó, pero invito a todos a dejarse influir, y sorprender por lo que ésta practica puede hacer por ustedes."
