Serve. Love. Give. Purify. Meditate. Realize.

At Vastu School of Yoga we teach and practice an integral style of yoga. Our teachings positively affect not just the physical body, but also the mental, emotional and spiritual aspects.

While we are registered members of Yoga Alliance, our approach links back to the roots of yoga itself, to the ancient sacred texts of India, the Vedas, and the sciences of Vastu and Ayurveda Shastras. We honor these sciences with a practice that contemplates asanas as more than physical positions, but as sacred geometry.  We teach proper exercise, diet,  relaxation, breathing and thinking to balance the five elements: earth, water, fire, air and space.

Swami Sivananda, one of the greatest Yoga masters and Ayurvedic doctors of the 20th century, is the inspiration behind Vastu Yoga. The essence of our lineage is captured in these six words: Serve, Love, Give, Purify, Meditate, Realize.


Sanskrit for ``dwelling place``

Lorrie & Lal

Co-founders, accomplished yogi masters and healers, Lorrie Conglose (right) and Lal Maharajh (left) are the visionaries behind Vastu Yoga. They both trained in the Sivananda lineage, under Bharata, a senior disciple of Swami Vishnudevananda.

Growing up in Ramrick Sadhu Sewala (temple), yoga was a part of Lal’s life from a very early age. He received initiation and mantras from his guru Pujya Sat Gurudev Pundit Lutchmee Persad, who ardently followed Swami Sivananda`s teachings of karma service. In 1964, Lal received Janeau (sacred thread).

Lorrie has studied yoga at the Sivananda Ashrams in India, the Bahamas and New York. She is a licensed massage therapist, certified in Reiki, Thai Yoga, and experienced in aromatherapy, relaxation imagery and pain management through breath work. She has also worked as a holistic therapist for hospice, and has taught yoga extensively to children, adults, seniors and individuals with disabilities.

Both Lorrie and Lal are individually registered with Yoga Alliance at the E-RYT 500 level.  Their commitment to the healing properties of yoga has allowed them to travel the world, and together they have trained hundreds of yoga teachers.


Join us as we journey into the formless. We practice a very classical form of yoga. And don’t worry, there is space for everybody.



With hands-on assistance, we focus on proper breathing and alignment.  We bring the joy of mantra and meditation into each class, helping new and practiced yogis find their balance. Through this chakra-specific yoga practice, Vastu helps each student to channel their energy in each pose.

In our classes, we honor and protect the body, no matter your physical condition. We understand that yoga asanas are intended to prepare the body for meditation, as well as keep the bodily systems in top shape. We encourage students to come to their edge, never forcing a pose or competing with others or themselves. While deep muscular release and very advanced practices are achievable, the number one priority is to practice ahimsa, non-injury. Our classes are a perfect fit for all students. Whether you are an accomplished yogi or a beginner, there is a spot for your mat in our classroom.



We host classes, yoga training intensives, retreats, and workshops at Na Balam Resort and Hotel, located on a small island off the coast of Cancun. Our teacher training is taught during a 21-day yoga immersion. We teach techniques that can be used for the rest of your life to deepen your practice and navigate the art of teaching others.

Our training is comprehensive and thorough. You will learn and become proficient in both practicing and teaching asanas, assisting, yoga physiology, yoga philosophy, the chakras and their mystical meanings, sacred yoga texts, pranayama and breathing, a yogic diet, meditation and traditional sanskrit chanting.

During our immersions, we ask that our students maintain a vegetarian diet and withdraw from stimulants such as caffeine, Internet and TV, as well as depressants such as alcohol and drugs. If you would like to earn your 200-hour yoga teacher certification, or if you simply want to find an authentic spiritual connection, our teacher training is for you.



Private ayurveda yoga sessions are a gentle soothing and relaxing way to deal with physical, emotional and mental dis-ease.  Our body is sometimes referred to as our subconscious mind, and holds the key to our healing. These private sessions include placing you in passive and gentle yoga poses, along with Reiki, Thai massage and Aromatherapy, allowing you to completely relax and learn to identify and let go off energetic blocks and imbalances. Deep physical and emotional releases are most often experienced by the receiver.

Lorrie haas worked as a Holistic Therapist for hospice, offered ayurveda yoga in nursing homes, hospitals, to adults and children with multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, scoliosis, arthritis, back pain and injuries.  Lorrie has also helped many individuals with chronic pain and breathing disorders such as COPD, and helped many clients with depression and anxiety.

Ayurveda yoga sessions usually last for 1 – 1.5 hours and are individually tailored to meet your need.  Clients do not need any prior yoga experience.  Therapy is provided either on a mat, chair, or massage table.  Home sessions may be available depending upon your location.  Contact us below for more information.
