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.
Yoga is for everyone. It is a science developed to maintain and help heal the human body and mind. A Pittsburgh native, Zeb has studied yoga all over the world. After his intensive, nine week teacher training with Bikram Choudhury in Honolulu, Hawaii, Zeb set out to travel and bring the gift of yoga, of health, to as many people and places as possible. From the beaches of Mexico, all throughout the United States, Australia, and Southeast Asia, each new place has put him in touch with wonderful new cultures, new students, and new teachers. 2014 International Champion, Zeb has placed in the top four of the USA Yoga National Finals from 2008 to 2014. Held in India for many years, this international ‘yoga competition’ is founded on the ideal of spreading interest in yoga throughout the world and focuses on the individual improving their own practice, not competition against opponents.
Bringing with him a deep knowledge of yoga technique, Zeb also has an extensive background in dance, physical theater, mask work, and the performing arts, holding a BFA in Theater Arts from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia.
Casa Om has 10 beautiful bedrooms and bathrooms, a spacious and well equipped yoga room, swimming pool, a rooftop dining area and 2 kitchens. Bedrooms can set for either single or double occupancy, and have either a private bathroom or a bathroom shared between two rooms. Casa Om also has a new dorm that sleeps up to 6 people in bunk beds.
The rooms at Casa Om are comfortable and beautifully designed with air conditioning and fans. Drinking water and wifi are provided. Casa Om sleeps 24 and is across the street from the beach.

Our head chef, Eduardo “Yayo” Gomez, is a former restaurateur; he brings more than 10 years of professional cooking experience to Casa Om. He is passionate about food and his cooking classes are a favorite amongst our visitors. Those passionate about cuisine will find a like-minded soul.

Puerto Morelos is a small village situated 20 miles between Playa Del Carmen and Cancun. It offers world class infrastructure in a small town setting. It means we get the best of both worlds. There are so many fun things to do in and around Casa Om. Last year we offered Bikram yoga, snorkeling, sweat lodges, hands on corrections workshops, a photo yoga posture class, a special ashtanga class in playa del carmen, a kundalini class, a shopping trip, visits to zip lines over cenotes, mayan ruins, classes on the beach, cooking classes, massage treatments with a mayan healer and a movie night.
Siri Om & her team have led 8 retreats in the Mayana Riviera. Each event is set to be more inspiring and entertaining than the previous. We are excited to show you the special things that we have discovered.
