Explore the 5 Elements in one of the world’s most beautiful natural landscapes. See what made Steinbeck fall in love, and why Jacques Cousteau famously named this ocean, “the world’s aquarium.”

“…Let us go,” we said, “into the Sea of Cortez, realizing that we become forever a part of it. We shall take something away from it, but we shall leave something too.” And if we seem a small factor in a huge pattern, nevertheless it is of relative importance. None of it is important or all of it is.

The yoga offerings are suitable for all levels of practitioner, and we take pride in our ability to challenge and engage both beginners and seasoned yogis and yoginis at each session.
