“Yoga is far more than a workout. It’s nothing short of an inner revolution. It’s a profound perspective that allows you to be your most vibrant, effective, authentic self. When combined with Ayurveda, the ancient holistic medical system, Yoga becomes a complete path for unfolding the human potential.

Having had an Ayurvedic consultation with you enabled me to tap ever more of your plentiful resources. Getting me moving, getting stronger and more flexible, paying more attention to how I breathe, meditation, learning pranayama techniques ... I'm more thoughtful of what I eat. I can't thank you enough.Harold Bott, Musician and Composer, New York City
She is a phenomenal instructor - a genuine yogi with a background in dance. Her instructions are nuanced but crystal clear, and it makes a huge difference. I leave feeling like I've worked every muscle in my body, got an amazing stretch, and strengthened my spirit. She is amazing and a joy to learn from.Rate Your Burn Review
Manifest in Mexico
An Adventure Yoga Retreat with Mariko Hirakawa. March 27th ~ April 2nd, 2016
If you are ready to manifest a life attuned to your heart’s Deepest Longings and unleash the most vibrant version of you, then join Mariko in gorgeous Riviera Maya for a most inspired, purposeful vacation!
Over 6 delightful nights and 7 days we’ll be attuning to and opening up to that space of Abundance through the practice of Fluid Vinyasa yoga practice, meditation, visualization and journaling.
I believe that if you have a true, deep desire to do, be, have or give something to the world, then the Universe must answer that call sooner of later. Let’s make than sooner, shall we?
When like-minded, growth-oriented people come together to share and support each other’s dreams, there is a powerful confluence of energy that can accelerate our dreams’ manifestation.
We’ll be staying in the charming village of Puerto Morelos, just 45 minutes from the Cancun International airport, away from the glitz and commercial vibe of Cancun, but with all the beauty, a much more relaxed pace of life, and affordable prices.
We’ll be staying at Casa Om, a beautiful abode, made for and run by Yogis, and exactly 1 minute 29 seconds’ walk from the turquoise beach (faster if you walk like New Yorkers:) Take a moment to watch this video to get a sense of what’s in store for you!
