Tribal Yoga Tulum

About This Center

Tribal yoga is more than just a great yoga studio, it is a tribe of amazing people with vast and varied experiences that led them to Tulum. My partner in the business and in life is Alex Alvarez, one of the "banda original" here in Tulum. He has been here since 1993 and we met practicing yoga. I have been here since 2004, and have a special connection to the place in that I believe I came here to die, and I almost did! Read my memoir, Map of Life and Beauty, to find out more. However, here I was given the privilege of living fully and it resonates in this wonderful studio we call Tribal, the shalla that surrounds it and the amazing connection we create in the studio to the breath and the body.

My teachers and I are connected in special ways, some of them were my students over the years. All of them have been my teachers on and off the mat while that I have owned and managed this very exciting and wonderful project. Tribal is a place where we hold space for the yogic mind body connection, where we laugh and grow and play and where "we get our warrior on!" It is also where we connect our breath to activity off the mat, like diving, both scuba and freediving and even snorkeling and floating. We connect to our breath off the mat in some of the most magnificent natural areas above and below the surface of the water.
