What people have to say about us...

“Last winter I was fortunate to experience a month stay at Tribal Tulum, attending no less than two yoga classes a day.

The yoga instructors were world class, creative and amazing! They were experienced with all skill levels and making everyone feel comfortable.So many reasons to practice with Tribal Tulum and Get Your Warrior On!

 “Home away from home”

Upon arrival, I was made to me feel at home right away! Accommodations: The room was beautiful and stocked with fresh fruit and water. The room was also cleaned regularly. Tribal provides a bike for your stay which quickly becomes your best friend. They also have some of the best scuba and free diving instructors. Yoga: I tried to attend at least 1 yoga class a day and found there is much variety and something for everyone. You can attend even if you’re a beginner. I liked the incorporation of essential oils and more breathing techniques than I’m used to. The staff: Everyone is very friendly and helpful. Location: The retreat is in a convenient location. It doesn’t take too long to bike to the beach or even some cenote. I biked to 2 nearby cenote during my visit which were beautiful. There are also some delicious restaurants and bars within walking distance. Tulum: Tulum itself is gorgeous, safe and I’d definitely revisit. This loft fits the Tulum vibe of positivity and slow living perfectly! Thank you all for making my first solo vacation wonderful 😊

I can't recommend Tribal yoga enough. I went in Aug 2017, booked for 4 days and extended for another week! It's a fabulous choice if you're traveling alone, I made fabulous friends and really felt at home. The excellent loft 4 self-catering, a/c accommodation is amazing, spacious and stylish-amazing beds!!

Superb yin, vinyasa, hatha, asthanga, yoga nidra yoga over looking a canopy of jungle tree tops. Silhouettes of sunset over the jungle are part of my meditation! So uplifting!! The expert yoga guidance twice a day with extremely kind, motivating, expert teachers allowed me to achieve my intention for my yoga holiday - to come away and live the yoga practice: I have new self empowering confidence and beautiful sense of inner peace and kindness to myself - and the world seems a softer, better place - thanks to Tribal!

And you'll meet the fabulous Joanne who owns Tribal Yoga. She has an amazing energy of warmth, fun, wisdom and inclusiveness. She easily organized safe airport transfers, books excursions, diving, and settles you into your Tulum tribal yoga experience with a free bike, wheeling around Tulum was a highlight of the trip!

Throw in Tulum's natural beauty-the white beaches, fabulous restaurants, excursions to ancient Mayan archeological sites, UNESCO wilderness, free diving in cenotes and it's one of the best traveler choices I've ever made. I'll definitely be going back!

I booked a one week yoga retreat at tribal yoga via As it was my first time to travel to Mexico I had some questions and send an inquiry to Joanne. She was more than helpful and answered always right away, so I felt very welcome and safe. My loft (no 4 as far as I remember) was very spacious, modern, clean and lively decorated. There was a cute balcony with a hammock, which I feel in love with. Never feel asleep faster than there :-) the room had three ventilator and an ac as well. The kitchen offered everything you needed to prepare a proper meal. I tried to take part in every class theme. The classes with Daria have been the most inspiring ones. She is a great teacher and takes really care if each student. Roll and release changed a lot in my practice. Ivengar yoga with Eugenia was challenging, very good and exact. You really feel every posture and how to move into the right posture. I couldn't believe it when I hung upside down on the wall, keeping my whole weight in that posture for more than one breath. I booked a fabulous tour to the cenotes with acuatic diving, incredible to snorkel there. A must do when you are in the area and we had so much fun. I could have stayed there for a couple of more weeks. Felt home right away and explored whole tulum with a rental bike which I got from Joanne. I lost one pedal and got a new bike some hours later. Perfect service! There are always some dogs around and a little cute cat. Just adorable. I enjoyed every single second and have been so sad to leave. I will come back again and get my warrior on. If you meet Joanne you will immediately know that she is a special woman, calm, lovable, laughing and joking. I didn't finished her book yet, but I am very impressed already. Thank you tulum, thank you aquatic, thank you to all teachers to have me, thank you Joanne and her employees and thanks for the peace I took with me to Germany :-)

Jo and the whole team at Tribal make this place super special.
Warmly greeted by Jo after a long journey from Australia and made to feel part of her yoga family, she is super attentive as are the teachers and the classes were varied, informative and challenging. 

The loft apartment I stayed in was gorgeous and clean and fresh fruit was on a basket for when I arrived. So many thoughtful touches had been made...

The yoga studio is just stunning!!!

Jo went out of her way on many occasions and cant thank her and the team for such a beautiful experience...inspiring to be around and hope to stay in touch.

Thank you guys so much!!

I would definitely recommend yoga here and the trips with Aquatic too, awesome trustworthy staff. Just lovely experience!

I had a couple day off and decided to treat myself to yoga retreat and relax a bit. Tribal Yoga was everything and more that I could expect! The studio is beautiful with large panel windows, wooden floors, equipped with all the props and mats that you need.

I have back issues and Joanne's Yin class did wonders for my back. I got the opportunity to practice Iyenger yoga as well, which is unlike any type of yoga I have ever tried. Loved it!

This studio is also partnered with the Acuatic Tulum, a dive shop, which is another reason I picked this place! The staff there were incredibly friendly and professional leading me on some great dives in world renown cenotes. FYI: bring your underwater cameras for these dives.

The loft I stayed in was in the same building as the studio; it was clean, modern and homey too! It was clear a lot of detail was put into the room: from the bowl or fruits, to the cold water sitting in the fridge, and blender I used for smoothies. They give you a bike to use during your stay, which is by far the easiest way to get to everywhere you need to go, from the beach (3km+) to the shopping area, and restaurants up and down the main street. 

I would wholeheartedly recommend Tribal Yoga/Aquatic Tulum to anyone looking for a great getaway alone or with friends. I intend to come back again! Thank you very much guys!

During my two week stay in Tulum, I went to several different places. Tribal Yoga was superior. Flavio's beautifully compact and focus class was a masterpiece of sequencing, interlaced with a simple but profound teaching on the breath. 

As a nomad, I go to many different yoga classes in many different studios and countries; this is among the best any place I've been.

Please don't get sucked in by the beachfront retreat scene and think that's all there is; just _try_ Tribal. Yes, the ocean is beautiful, and maybe you'll decide you prefer to stare at it while practicing. But Tribal will be a different beautiful experience, and may well be a more wondrous one.
