Yoga In Cabarete
Get stretchy and relaxed Cabarete style
Yoga in Cabarete is sort of a big deal. That’s probably because almost everyone is here to shred in some sort of watersport. Therefore, one of the main priorities is to keep the body strong, yet flexible in order to withstand the crashes that can happen during a surfing, kiteboarding, windsurfing, or SUP sesh.
As you may or may not know, yoga has a wide range of benefits including, but not limited to, the following:
- Increased flexibility, strength, and long lean muscle tone
- Pain relief and prevention
- Better and fuller breathing
- Stress reduction
- Mental calmness and improved concentration
- Weight management
- Cardiovascular conditioning
- Improved posture and body awareness
- Inner Peace
So, whether you are a hardcore yogi, or just starting to get in touch with your flexible side, Cabarete has a very wide range of yoga classes to suit everyone. Keep in mind there is a revolving batch of teachers coming in and out of Cabarete due to its transient nature. For that reason, our list of yoga classes in Cabarete includes the staples that we know of. If you have a yoga class that we didn’t mention, please feel free to jot down the information in our comments.

Grace Mazzucco – Hatha and Vinyasa Yoga
Grace is a beloved member of the Cabarete yoga community who has been practising yoga for the better part of 2 decades. She received her certification in India where she trained in classical yoga (the original 8-limb practice as outlined by Patanjali). Her Asana practice style focuses on combining Hatha with Vinyasa while maintaining attention to the breath and alignment. Some classes include pranayama and meditation. Her certification in Yoga therapy and her knowledge as a massage therapist adds an extra bit of depth and insight to her classes. In general, her classes will suit every level, even if you are new to yoga. Our favorite thing about Grace’s classes is they take place during sunset as well, two days a week (Grace likes to surf some mornings)!
