About the Retreat

Alba Nagurney

alba-nagurneyAlba’s path to yoga began as she was looking for alternative healing methods for her spinal cord injury due to a car accident that happened ten years ago. She was in an extreme amount of pain and no flexibility in her spinal cord. Her doctor stated that she should go in for surgery but she would still not regain 100% function. She took Bikram Hot Yoga classes and found that her spinal cord injury was healing. Alba knew firsthand the benefits of yoga and wanted to begin a journey to help others strive for their positive inner and outer health. With her medical background; obtaining a Master in Public Health from Hebrew University and completion of one year of psychiatry and psychosomatic disorders externship at MedStar Washington Hospital on Irving Street, NW in Washington, DC, she knew she could contribute to the yoga discipline. Alba set out to integrate her medical and personal background into the benefits of yoga; building the union of body, mind and spirit. Alba is certified as instructor in Barre, Bikram, and Yoga Spa, and she is pursuing additional yoga certifications. Building this strong foundation allows Alba to approach her yoga teaching with inspiration and playfulness, leaving her students feeling refreshed, nourished and balanced within themselves

Activites

Optional Excursions (additional fee applies):

Cenotes
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.

Scuba
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.

Coba Ruins
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.
