A new addition to Bahia is Yoga Maya Uvita

A new addition to Bahia is Yoga Maya Uvita!

Author: J.S.P.

At an incredible location, close to the Whale Tail, owner Debbie Krejci offers a stunning space for Yoga Teacher Training (YTT), yoga practice, and retreats. 

Stemming from Ohio in the U.S., Debbie acquired her yoga training in Mexico (200) and Florida (300), E-RYT 500 status, Personal Training certification, and Pilates Mat One. Formerly a paramedic and firefighter/inspector, Debbie became interested in yoga as it was similar to the physical therapy she went through due to an injury with the fire department. Having pushed herself hard with marathon running and intensive workplaces, she found a teacher that made yoga fun and has gone on to teach in Mexico, Greece, Sri Lanka, and now Costa Rica.

She saw the growth potential in the Uvita area and was drawn to the beach, mountains, wildlife, and Pura Vida lifestyle. The easy access to local waterfalls, including Nauyaca, and the Whale Tale beach make it an ideal location for some Namaste!

Yoga Maya Uvita offers all the props (mats, straps, blocks) for all levels and will soon be offering Intro classes, for those new to yoga, in addition to the already available Yin, Vinyasa (with modifications given).  Yoga Teacher Training and High- Intensity Interval classes will also be scheduled.

Debbie is currently working on writing an Anatomy book that includes coloring pages specific to yogis.

Former Y.T.T.s have also included Gong/Sound baths, Cacao ceremonies, horseback riding, and a Medicinal Plant tour. There are bikes and surfboards available!

The grounds provide gardens for clients to have access to the Edible and Medicinal established plants of maracuya, mango, and mamones, with vanilla, turmeric/ginger, bananas/plantains, and ylang-ylang being added.

This stunning venue offers a large yoga shala with a teak floor that is easier on the body, alongside a separate area that can be used for dining, classrooms, and meetings. There are housing options for every budget, and many restaurants and shops are within walking distance. Yoga classes are currently being offered Monday through Friday. (R.S.V.P. necessary!)

Tips for protecting your home


Tips for protecting your home: , Gutters must be cleaned. Make sure your landscaper is doing that during every visit (minimum twice per month), especially during the rainy season. Water mitigation starts with landscaping. Take care when changing the landscaping of a property – especially if you want to change slopes/grades. Don’t plant trees too close to your home. If they are already planted, make sure the limbs are cut back to decrease the probability of debris falling onto the roof.  
Install “alcantarillas” (concrete tubes typically used under roads and driveways) to help the water keep moving. 
Study where your downspouts/rain chains end. Do they go onto the ground? Ideally, a concrete catch box will be connected to buried plastic pipes guiding the water into a more extensive water system.  
Plant appropriate plants and trees in the proper locations.
Keep all drainage clean of debris. Have your landscaper/property manager check them.
