The custom-built Bocas Yoga Studio was designed specifically for the practice of Yoga, with clean hard-wood floors. Nowhere else in Bocas Town is there a space that's devoted entirely to Yoga practice. All classes provide a highly attentive and supportive environment. Appropriate for beginners and ongoing intermediate students. Founder, Laura Kay, who in addition to completing 250 hours of Basic Yoga Teacher Training, has successfully completed 108 hours of Anusara Yoga Immersions & 36 hours of Anusara Yoga Teacher Training. Here you will find a safe, comfortable, noncompetitive, nonjudgmental, lightly air-conditioned, nurturing haven. Classes use principles of alignment to promote safety and empower students to achieve their full potential. Each class interweaves heart-oriented, life-affirming themes to connect students to the deeper purpose of yoga.

Laura has great energy. She encourages all to have fun and celebrate their bodies, and adjusts to whoever is in the room - newbies, foreigners, young or old. She is very helpful at teaching how to get into positions correctly to get the most out of your practice. The studio is beautiful- clean, serene, warm. I would go back everyday... More

I loved Laura's classes!!! Affordable, effective and mostly a lot of fun. The best value class I found in Central America. She has a great sense of humour which fits in really well while not distracting from her great class. I was so sad to have to move on and no longer attend her classes. Go!

I had a lovely experience with Bocas Yoga. I was staying in town for several weeks and was looking for a way to relax and be active. Laura immediately welcomed me into her studio and made me feel right at home. During my time there, I was able to experience both larger and smaller, more intimate group classes. She thoughtfully...

A rainy Saturday in Bocas and this was just what we needed. We brought several family members hoping this would be a good session....and it was great. Laura gave us an hour of concentrated attention, leading a great practice that was relaxing, stretching, challenging and grounding. Exactly what we needed and a wonderful 'find.' Worth a detour!

Bocas Yoga provides a beautiful and safe setting to practice. The studio is conveniently located, perfectly clean, and comfortable. However, it's really Laura's dedication to teaching that sets it apart from other studios. It's obvious to me that she understands how to safely practice yoga, while also encouraging her students to try new things. She always asks if anyone has... More

While on our honeymoon my husband and I stayed at the owner Laura Kay's private bedroom through Airbnb. That in itself was a delight and we highly recommend. Then we had the pleasure of practicing yoga with Laura twice during our stay and very much enjoyed the classes. Laura does a great job of welcoming each student, new or old... More
