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.

That and so much more is what we learned and adopted during our yoga lessons in bocas. We were in bocas for the Second time and chose to relax instead if partying like the Rest of the island. Bocas yoga was the perfect place for that. The Studio is great and there is such a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere it... More

I was in Bocas Town this October and even with a week of sunshine, a visit with Laura brightened my day that much more. She has the most pleasant and calming demeanor. I look forward to many more visits in the future.

Laura is amazingly patient with beginners and challenging to the accomplished. I entered the purple house with some amount of trepidation. I was reasonably new to yoga and very new to Bocas town. I was in town for Spanish classes at Habla Ya and was staying near by. I discovered the purple house on my walk to the store and... More

I spent the summer working at the Smithsonian institute on the island, and though I had only done yoga a handful of times before, I found myself a regular at Bocas Yoga. Laura Kay is inviting to anyone who wants to try yoga or continue practicing. I loved how she emphasized both positive attitude and the alignment for safety and... More

Having a regular practice in the states, it was nice to have a Yoga option while on vacation. Laura was very friendly and a true Yogi. She was considerate of each of us in her class, being mindful of each of our varying strengths and weaknesses. She has a wonderful energy about her and her studio is very peaceful and... More

I was surprised to find a yoga studio and instruction of such elegance so far off the grid. Lara Kay's studio was serene, clean, full of light, beautifully colored and interestingly decorated. Like a polished gem in the rough and tumble of Bocas. Laura Kay has created a place and a practice that should please all comers, both practiced yogis... More
