Alzbeta Peskova has an endless passion for yoga. She is an international Yoga teacher who believes yoga can make a positive shift in anybody’s life. A Yoga Champion with a decade of teaching experience and in-depth knowledge of physical alignment, Alzbeta inspires students to commit to their practice and do their best.
Alzbeta began studying yoga and meditation in her early 20’s. She committed to her practice and kept trying to overcome the mental and physical challenges. Original Hot (Bikram) Yoga helped her to recover from a major skiing accident which damaged her knee. In 2011 she completed Bikram Yoga Teacher Training in Los Angeles, CA and has been teaching in Westchester, NY and Fairfield County, CT ever since. She has attended many seminars with advanced yogis in NYC where she trained for the Yoga Asana Championship Competition. She was the CT Champion and made it to the National Competition in 2015 in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
Alzbeta is originally from Prague, Czech Republic and has taught in various yoga schools around Europe. In 2019, she traveled to India for a Yin Yoga Teacher Training where she studied Chakras and energy healing. Alzbeta is fascinated by the human mind and consciousness. She is a certified Life Coach and Reiki practitioner. She combines all aspects of yoga including breathing exercise, asanas (postures), meditation, mantra, the healing power of the Tibetan singing bowl, and affirmations to awake the human mind and inner senses so you can look deeper and achieve higher state of consciousness.
Jackie Ryan started her Yoga journey 12 years ago and never looked back. Through her Bikram practice, she was able to cure her asthma, allergies and eczema, say goodbye to depression, insomnia, and a binge eating disorder, and cultivate an empowered sense of self and compassion for others. After 7 years of dedicated practice, Jackie went through Bikram’s 9-week intensive training in Los Angeles in Spring 2014 so she could empower other people to heal their own bodies and minds. A Yin Yoga training called to her in 2015 and she studied Integral Yoga and Meditation at Satchidananda Ashram Yogaville, completing their Living Yoga Training in 2016.
Jackie became a certified Holistic Health Coach through IIN in 2015. She is humbled and grateful to be helping clients find balance on and off the mat. Jackie is a huge advocate for creativity and self-expression. She found Bikram Yoga while getting her BA in Studio Art at the University of Vermont. She is an abstract painter whose vibrant work you can see at visionfaerie.com. She lives and teaches Yoga in CT, where she founded Ecstatic Dance Fairfield County and offers workshops on mindfulness, nature connection, art and manifesting. Jackie believes that yoga is a foundational practice that empowers you to free yourself from all limitations so you can truly shine your unique light upon the world.

Optional Excursions (additional fee applies):
The Mexican Riviera is flush with these beautiful underground pools and a trip here isn’t complete without a dip in these refreshing waters. There are multiple cenotes to visit that are much less crowded than those in the Tulum area and only about 30min away by car. Find tranquility below ground or liven you experience with a cenote/zip line combination. Both options are available and booking at least a day in advance is recommended.
Snorkeling & Snuba
The biodiversity on the protect reef in the Mexican Riviera is stunning. Take off for an afternoon when the sun lights up the corals, tropical fish and sponges and search for turtles or reef sharks. Snorkelers can float above it all while scuba divers (no certification needed) can swim down into the tropical traffic. Either option will highlight why this area is protected and turned into a National Marine Park. Yogis can walk to the beach and take a 5 minute stroll to reach the operator. This natural oasis is literally steps from our retreat center.
If you’re a diver there’s twice the opportunity here, you can dive in the coral reefs or, for something a little different, take a cavern or cenote dive. Seasonally the more adventurous (crazy?) yogis can also try a bull shark dive…eek! Tons of diving options await the intrepid.
Akumal Sea Turtle Snorkel
The warm Caribbean waters off of the Mexican Riviera boast sea turtle populations year-round. You can outfit with a dive shop to snorkel with these lovelies or head out with your own gear and see if you get lucky.
The Mayan ruins at Coba is one of the few sites in the Yucatan that is still relatively unrestored. Many of these ancient buildings are the same as when they were rediscovered in 1890. The beautiful location is less hectic and touristy than other Mayan sites and is certainly worth the day trip.
Playa Del Carmen Take a shopping trip, have a great meal, or just enjoy people watching on a trip to Playa del Carmen. This is a fun tourist spot where you can shop for anything from cheap souvenirs to boutique items.
