It all depends on how the mood takes you.
  • Our Yoga Practice

    During our retreat we’ll engage in a daily Restorative Yoga practice. It’s become one of our yoga instructor’s favorite styles of yoga to teach because of the deep relaxation it promotes from the moment we get on the mat until our last posture at the end of the practice.
    We’re generally not instructed on how to relax. Yet, this is the crux of Restorative Yoga. Rather than the energetic or pretzel-like postures, sometimes the hallmark of other yoga styles, the emphasis of this practice is on stillness and deep repose.
    Using props, such as blocks and blankets, we’ll engage in gentle postures and stretches designed to soothe the mind and help us experience the kind of deep rest that comes with a good night’s sleep. Ahhh…

    Our Retreat Venue

    Casa Om is a gorgeous boutique retreat center designed with Balinese and Indonesian influences, and includes 10 comfortable air conditioned bedrooms (with fans), a lovely pool, a courtyard Koi pond, and large yoga/meeting room.

    Getting to Casa Om couldn’t be easier. Fly into Cancun International Airport (CUN), and it’ll be a short 20-30min taxi ride to travel the 16 miles (27 kilometers) from the airport to Casa Om. (Airport transfers are included in your registration fee.)

    The retreat center is within easy walking distance to the beach (about a three minute walk) and approximately a 10 minute walk into the local town where there are restaurants, coffee shops, a grocery store, and local artisans displaying their wares.

    The food at Casa Om will not disappoint. In fact, it has quite a reputation for the fresh and delicious vegetarian meals prepared by Chef Eduardo, who is passionate about providing guests with an array of vegetarian cuisines including Mexican, Lebanese, Italian, and Thai. Gluten-free options are also available on request.

    During your retreat one meal a day (typically lunch) will be on your own but there are plenty of reasonably-priced restaurants in town offering a variety of food choices.
