The Yoga studio & cafe

Yoga is a physical, mental and spiritual discipline that is both rejuvenating and calming at the same time.

If you’d like to try is out for the first time or if you practice yoga at home and would like to continue to do so, you’re welcome to join our classes held on the roof top, with the sounds of the ocean in the background and a salty breeze wafting through. Our Yoga shala and Rooftop cafe are closed during the low season (roughly from November until beginning of March, please check our Facebook and Instagram page for updates).
