About the teacher
Lauren created LIV Yoga Institute as a result of working through her own healing from her life’s challenges and experiences. LIV Yoga is a healing, physical, and internally focused practice that also focuses on how to carry a transformative experience off the yoga mat and into daily life.
By teaching asana and breath awareness, Lauren teaches yoga from a place of having people begin to truly listen to their bodies and begin to understand what it feels like to heal and not push, to go downstream and honor themselves. With her guidance, Lauren’s students cultivate an awareness of their own practice on and off the mat, resulting in them connecting to themselves, feeling peace of mind, power and freedom.
Lauren took her first yoga class in 1996 and became a certified yoga teacher in 2001. Her extensive studies of Ashtanga, Vinyasa and Bikram Yoga over the years have given her a great blend of perspectives to look from at the body and mind.
Lauren is devoted to her practice and is an ongoing student of all limbs of the yoga practice. As a teacher, she has a passion for teaching from a place of reminding her students to be kind to themselves, that we are here to heal. Her classes focus on breath, alignment and teachings about mindset so that her students have the opportunity to transform self made limits and begin to live from a place of creating their life from scratch.
Lauren views the practice of yoga as a place where we learn to sit in the seat of ourselves, as we are, as it is. That is the yoga path! To follow our natural purpose for being here so that we can experience living as joyful. To fall in love with being alive and feel connected once again.
Casa Om has 11 beautiful bedrooms and bathrooms, a spacious and well equipped yoga room, swimming pool, a rooftop dining area and 2 kitchens.

The rooms at Casa Om are comfortable and beautifully designed with air conditioning and fans. Drinking water and wifi are provided. Casa Om sleeps 26 and is across the street from the beach.

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 snuba 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 5min 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.
Casa Om Spa
Whether you’re looking for an amazing massage or energy work, The Travel Yogi team can tell you first hand how amazing the team at Casa Om is. Please be prepared to book early to secure a spot. Once the word gets out from the first few massages, they’ll book up quickly!
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.
