About the Teachers
She studied with Bikram Choudhury extensively since 1995 in Los Angeles at the Yoga College of India and is photo featured several times in “Bikram’s Beginning Yoga Class” instructional book. She practices daily and has consistently taught Bikram Yoga since 2002, worldwide. She is also qualified to teach the advanced series of Bikram Yoga.
My deepest wish is to serve people through teaching yoga; to help relieve others of some of their pain and suffering; to bring a healthy glow to their faces; to bring strength and flexibility to their bodies and minds; to help others connect to their joyful essence through the magical beauty of Bikram Yoga.”
Hargobind Khalsa was born in an ashram and grew up in India. After breaking a vertebrae in his back, he began practicing yoga with regularity. He completed Kundalini yoga training in India in 2000 and again in the USA in 2001. He completed Sterling Hot Yoga training in 2014 and Jared McCann’s Vinyasa training in 2015. He has done additional training in yin, satnam rasayan, and yoga with weights. He is the co founder of Pure Om Hot Yoga, Casa Om and the One Fire Hot Yoga Festival.

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.
