  • Vinyasa: The Seven Doorways 

The Vinyasa class sequencing within the 7 Doorway method is rhythmic and responsible. It’s intuitive nature is the groundwork for all that we will touch physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

  • Intuitive Sequencing

Learn to break down each flow and discover exactly why and how the pieces fit together. Discover breath as the bridge from thinking to feeling. Apply the 5 Elements of Nature for exceptional results.

  • Acro Yoga & Inversion Practice

The profound effects of Inversion Therapy and partner work ( of many kinds ) are both integral in a well balanced practice and community experience. Seeing ourselves and others from a new perspective is an exceptional tool.

We will ensure that you leave the training feeling confident to teach. The art of giving and receiving feedback are relied on heavily to draw out the certainty our students demand!

Today, Jonah is a well traveled ashtanga/vinyasa teacher whose classes are both graceful and intense. Impermanence, compassion and humility are just a few of the elements that Jonah seamlessly weaves through each healing practice.


We had a great time! The hotel was excellent, easy check in, friendly staff, very clean and comfortable rooms. The resort itself was so beautiful and the food was wonderful. Daily yoga and activities were great. I enjoyed my free time but could have used more structure, too much free time at times. It would have been nice to have options for other optional activities and meals.

Amazing. Mind blowing. Emotional. Intense. The best yoga practices of my life. The most amazing experiences freediving the cenotes! And to end the week on a really tight note, a super emotional and spiritual experience doing the Temazcal. What a week! Thank you Jonah!!!
