Through daily consultations, therapies and individual workshops we share and support your inner development and transformation during your time here with us, offering you sustainable healing practices to carry with you as you venture home.  Our program includes daily meals, comfortable private accomodations and a staff ready to support your needs during this journey.

Our programs offer a comprehensive in-depth study of Yoga and Ayurvedic theory for aspiring students and seasoned teachers looking to gain proficient and tangible knowledge in the foundational subtleties of practice through an advanced exploration of asana, pranayamaand meditation techniques. The foundation of this program will be rooted in understanding and developing approaches to a safe and sustainable self-practice that once mastered will be naturally and easefully shared with future students as the practitioner blossoms beyond the personal stages of self-transformation into knowledgeable guides who hold space for others to realize their own inner evolutionary potential. This approach leads to confidence and accountability in self-development for the aspiring or seasoned yogin, maintaining the bedrock of the yogic approach to life, as well as nurturing the profound love and appreciation for the pursuit of self-knowledge through selfless service and unconditional love, from one’s interior terrain branching outward into our relationships with the world and interaction with the Nature of others and Life itself.

Maha Vidya will be joined by guest teachers and dear friends Darshania and Kemit Sweeney. Visiting our group from the island of St Croix they will bring with them a depth of elemental understanding and tangible practices working with nature itself. Private and group offerings will be available with the two as well as a beautiful collaboration with Zaplin and Carlisle to express the heart of the Yoga teachings.

This unique program is seeped in deep physical, emotional and energetic healing with detoxification or rejuvenation therapies all formulated just for you. Located on the northern seaside along the beautiful island of Puerto Rico in the quaint surf town of Isabela, we create a special program to support health, peace and gentle healing on all levels of existence.


Group sessions will include explorations in the local area to sacred spots. Bring your walking shoes!
