Richard Pike
It was just another Tuesday in June 2003 when my friend John Sikorjak (thank you, John) suggested I join him for a Bikram Yoga class. I said sure, why not, how hard could it be to do yoga? My first class- I was a train wreck. Not supposed to leave the room – I left the room. Water? Spent most of the time pouring it on my head. Standing Head to Knee – could not reach my foot. Fixed Firm – no, don’t think so. Triangle Pose – fugetaboutit. Thanks to a patient and loving certified Bikram Yoga teacher, somehow I made it through the class. I went home, poured myself into bed, and thanked God for allowing me to survive. I woke up the next morning and it was like a miracle – my knees felt better than they had since high school. My back felt better. And, I felt 3 inches taller. So, I went back…and went back…and went back. Seven years later and 35 pounds lighter, I realized I needed to share this wonderful yoga as much as I possibly could. So, I trekked off to San Diego in the Fall 2010 and immersed myself in Bikram’s rigorous nine-week Teacher Training. Now I look forward to meeting you and sharing this life changing yoga as we sweat and stretch and transform our bodies, minds, and spirits.

Emma decided to make yoga even more of a central focus in her life, at the young age of 19, and completed her Bikram TT Spring of 2014. The mind and body connection and her love for the practice is what made her want to share it with others. A few years into her yoga career she came across HOT HIIT and found that it was a great compliment to Bikram. Emma found the physical and mental strengths to be challenging and rewarding so she added the 60 minute High Intensity Interval Training classes to her profession. She is looking forward to inspire and share her love for the practice at her home studio in NY, and around the world.

Puerto Morelos is a small village situated 20 miles between Playa Del Carmen and Cancun. It offers world class infrastructure in a small town setting. It means we get the best of both worlds. There are so many fun things to do in and around Casa Om. Last year we offered Bikram yoga, snorkeling, sweat lodges, hands on corrections workshops, a photo yoga posture class, a special ashtanga class in playa del carmen, a kundalini class, a shopping trip, visits to zip lines over cenotes, mayan ruins, classes on the beach, cooking classes, massage treatments with a mayan healer and a movie night.

Siri Om & her team have led 8 retreats in the Mayana Riviera. Each event is set to be more inspiring and entertaining than the previous. We are excited to show you the special things that we have discovered.
