Puerto Escondido is an ideal location for asana practice in that it is hot, humid and sunny – ideal for muscles and joints to gently stretch and lengthen, minds to relax and spirits to brighten!

It is very much an ocean oriented community with wonderful beaches at walking distance along with a lot of clean, local produce to nourish you throughout the training.

Added to that, the Mexican and Oaxaca family character is tangible throughout with smiling and welcoming energy.

It’s Yoga® International has relocated headquarters here due to these wonderful characteristics that allow for healing and transformation in a safe and loving environment.

“My It’s Yoga® inspiration is the strong international Rocket® family. I love facilitating Rocket® classes and telling the practitioners that they are moving and breathing in the same flow as all the It’s Yoga® centers around the world. I love traveling to different It’s Yoga® studios and knowing, no matter what country and what language is spoken, I will have that feeling of hOMe. Triangle…Triángulo…etc is still Trikonasana; we move and breathe together.”
