Jamie Testa E-RYT 500:
Jamie discovered yoga while a student at UC Davis. After her first hot yoga class she knew the practice would be part of her life-long journey. At the time, Jamie was reliant on 3+ visits a week to the chiropractor to stave off debilitating headaches that were lingering from multiple car accidents. After several months of consistent practice the headaches were nearly gone. She wanted to start giving back by teaching and graduated from Bikram’s Teacher Training in Spring 2006. Jamie also attended a comprehensive 500-hour Yoga Alliance yoga teacher-training program, trained to teach Yin yoga and Hot Pilates. Jamie taught for 4 years before opening Akasha yoga studio in Vacaville, CA, in 2010 and in 2012 joined forces with a long-time friend and fellow yogini to open a second Akasha studio in Davis.

Over the past eight years of teaching this transforming practice she has noticed so many changes in those she teaches, as well as herself. Debbie owns Bikram Yoga Mid Atlantic.

Optional Excursions (additional fee applies):

The Mexican Riviera is flush with these beautiful underground pools and a trip here isn’t complete without a dip in these refreshing waters. There are multiple cenotes to visit that are much less crowded than those in the Tulum area and only about 30min away by car. Find tranquility below ground or liven you experience with a cenote/zip line combination. Both options are available and booking at least a day in advance is recommended.

Snorkeling & Snuba
The biodiversity on the protect reef in the Mexican Riviera is stunning. Take off for an afternoon when the sun lights up the corals, tropical fish and sponges and search for turtles or reef sharks. Snorkelers can float above it all while snuba divers (no certification needed) can swim down into the tropical traffic. Either option will highlight why this area is protected and turned into a National Marine Park. Yogis can walk to the beach and take a 5min stroll to reach the operator. This natural oasis is literally steps from our retreat center.

If you’re a diver there’s twice the opportunity here, you can dive in the coral reefs or, for something a little different, take a cavern or cenote dive. Seasonally the more adventurous (crazy?) yogis can also try a bull shark dive…eek! Tons of diving options await the intrepid.

Akumal Sea Turtle Snorkel
The warm Caribbean waters off of the Mexican Riviera boast sea turtle populations year-round. You can outfit with a dive shop to snorkel with these lovelies or head out with your own gear and see if you get lucky.

Coba Ruins
The Mayan ruins at Coba is one of the few sites in the Yucatan that is still relatively unrestored. Many of these ancient buildings are the same as when they were rediscovered in 1890. The beautiful location is less hectic and touristy than other Mayan sites and is certainly worth the day trip.

Casa Om Spa
Whether you’re looking for an amazing massage or energy work, The Travel Yogi team can tell you first hand how amazing the team at Casa Om is. Please be prepared to book early to secure a spot. Once the word gets out from the first few massages, they’ll book up quickly!

Playa del Carmen
Take a shopping trip, have a great meal, or just enjoy people watching on a trip to Playa del Carmen. This is a fun tourist spot where you can shop for anything from cheap souvenirs to boutique items
