Newly opened on October 2nd, Coral Yoga Studio is a beautiful ocean view studio located in Punta Mita. It is just twenty minutes from Sayulita and offers dynamic in-studio and private yoga classes for individuals, groups, and parties at home or in-studio.
Coral Yoga Studio is lead by Jeanette Calderon, an internationally trained and bilingual yoga teacher. Born in Monterrey and living in various regions throughout Mexico, Janette traveled to complete her yoga training in India. She then began teaching at Coral Gables Athletic Club and Biltmore Hotel in Miami Florida 11 years ago. She later made the move to Sayulita and became the yoga coordinator at Hotel Los Sueños. She has moved recently from Sayulita to Punta de Mita where she noticed the lack of studios to practice. It became Jeanette´s goal to share this opportunity of yoga with the community of Punta Mita.
Jeanette specializes in a dynamic style called Vinyasa Yoga as well as Hatha Yoga. The practice of Vinyasa focuses on movement and breath connection. Designed to progressively open the body, each sequence in a Vinyasa Yoga class builds upon the previous, evolving into deeper, more advanced postures as the practice unfolds. The entire practice culminates with a deep sense of mindfulness, self-connection, and ease. Hatha has a similar premise though each pose is held in a more static position.
During Jeanette's training in India, she excelled and fell in love with the practice of Ashtanga, an ancient dynamic routine that lead the way to the style of Vinyasa. She also developed an understanding of restorative yoga, which is done at a slow pace to allow the body to stretch and relax. Jeanette has experience teaching all levels of yoga and caters any class to the ability level of the student. On top of her extensive yoga training, she is also black belt taekwondo, a 3.5 USTA tennis player, full marathoner, longboard, and surfer.
Jeanette has completed various trainings including Chair Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Low Back Pain Therapeutic Yoga, Karma Kids Yoga, Tantra, Ashtanga, and Hatha Yoga. Coral Yoga Studio has the goal to share the love for yoga and the belief that everyone can benefit from a yoga practice, regardless of experience level, age, size, or flexibility. Jeanette continues to share her knowledge of the practice with the community and the visitors of Sayulita and the surrounding area.
Coral Yoga Studio is located on a stunning beach in Punta Mita on the second floor of El Coral Restaurant. The beautiful beach of Punta Mita and the breeze off the ocean make Coral Studios a perfect location for a yoga class during a vacation or for locals alike. Janette's favorite quality and what drew her to move to Nayarit is the perfect weather, relaxed atmosphere, peaceful but funky vibes, all contributing to a wonderful location to enhance yoga practice.
What separates Coral Yoga from other studios is the location on the beach with an amazing ocean view, the bright and airy space, the convenience of a restaurant downstairs, and the accessibility of private classes designed specifically for any ability level or desire.
What guests can expect in the experience with Jeanette is a full and balanced routine including stretching, strengthening, balance, breathing techniques, relaxation, and meditation. The practice is designed to improve posture and to enhance complete health overall health. Coral Yoga Studio focuses on giving the student an amazing experience with classes customized for all levels so students cannot wait to return.
