About the Retreat
The Cancun Yoga Retreat offers a balance of adventure and relaxation, nourished by a strong sense of community. This year, our retreat will be hosted by Casa Om, located in Puerto Morelos, Mexico. Casa Om is a nurturing, health conscious environment perfect for a relaxing retreat and the deepening of your yoga practice!
The retreat offers two daily yoga classes led by Brian and Gaby’s experienced teaching. Utilizing meditation, asana, mantra, and pranayama, guests will deepen their connection to their individual practice while tuning into the energy of the land and culture. The opportunity to unplug and immerse in whole, simple living will support you in unwinding and moving towards clarity. A balance of native spirituality and yoga philosophy will encourage transformation towards Self-knowledge.
Casa Om is just 15 miles south of Cancun and is located directly across the street from the ocean. The retreat center is a short walk away from restaurants and shops, giving guests the option to explore local culture. We will enjoy a group trip to Chichen Itza, one of the modern wonders of the world! Other optional activities include SUP, swimming, botanical gardens, snorkeling, exploring a local cenote, and spa services.

About the Teachers

Yoga is the modality that has led her closest to this, offering deep, lasting healing and the ability to embrace ones whole self.

Brian Tobin Brian is a Hatha Yoga and meditation teacher based in Burlington, Vermont. Brian aims to work with each student, starting from where they are, in order to develop their own personal practice. Utilizing techniques including yoga postures, breathing techniques, mantra, concentration, and visualization a custom practice is carefully crafted. The goal of all of these practices is to increase Self-knowledge and Joy in daily life.
At a young age, Brian began to wonder how to cultivate meaning and connectivity in life. Years of interest in consciousness and philosophy led Brian to the traditional practices of Hatha, or physical, Yoga. Studying and practicing alongside his beloved teachers, he has explored in-depth the intersection of body, breath, energy, and mind. Brian draws his influences from numerous different lineages of Hatha and Raja Yoga including: Sivananda Yoga, Bihar School of Yoga, Gosh/ Paramahansa Yogananda Lineages, Yogi Gupta (Dharma Mittra) Lineage, and Native Spirituality. Brian has received his advanced teaching certifications through the Hathavidya School of Yoga.
