About Debra Murphy
Studying the Mind-Body connection is Debbi’s life work. After years teaching in traditional academia (doctorate in exercise science, minor in psychology), Debbi turned her attention to the study of yoga, a perfect nexus of both.
Through more than 40 years of experience, including a decade as director of Shanti Yoga Teacher Training, Debbi embodies the personal empowerment of yoga as well as the evolving dynamic art and science of yoga. All her classes are grounded in sound biomechanics, mind-body-spirit integration, and her heart lies in the transitory nature of the beautiful, juicy flow of the vinyasa tradition.
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.
At Casa Om we run a full gourmet vegetarian kitchen. We offer extensive Mexican, Thai, New American, and Lebanese food options. Visitors love our fresh juices and smoothies. All dishes are prepared with a healthy yogic lifestyle in mind. We love to make gluten free and vegan meals as well. Please let us know how we can accommodate any request.
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.
