Our Programs


At Maha Vidya Caribbean School of Yoga and Ayurveda, we hold space for the realization of Yoga. We move through each layer of the Self (mayakosha), from the microcosm to the macrocosm, fully appreciating an integrated approach to mindful living and wellness. Abide in a state of yoga as a lifestyle (sadhana) and a rite of passage, sustaining our mutual heritage. Journey through the deepest layers of one’s being to merge with the heart of Creation as transcribed by the ancient rishis.

Join us to share in the knowledge and methodic approaches to personal practice and teaching, challenging your body, mind, and power of spirit. Learn what it means to be karmically unbound as free yogins on this path, moving in the world with conscious awareness, holding space while nurturing love and positivity in every thought, word, and deed within ourselves and the world surrounding.

An Electrolyte Drink Recipe


Ideal for warm days, dehydration, exertion and overall refreshment. This can be enjoyed at room temp year round, though especially useful during warm days. We share this frequently surrounding cleanse programs for guests during Pancha Karma. You can make the Ayurveda-Aide by the cup or easily multiply the recipe for a large mason jar. Feeling creative? Add a few mint sprigs, rose petals or cucumber to the cup, play with what is in season.

Why a Seasonal Cleanse is Essential

Ayurveda discusses the “Man and Universe” theory which gives us insight to the unique reflection we share with Nature itself. While it can be obvious that ingesting certain qualities in foods and other sensory channels have the potential to increase dosha, or vitiate the body and mind through accumulation of substances it can be overlooked that the same thing can happy due to the qualities in Nature itself. This is why around the junction point of the season cleansing is a recommended practice to essentially wipe out any doshic imbalances created either by intake through the 5 Senses or the Nature we live in and prepare the body with a clean slate for the next season and experience to come.

Ayurvedic Superfoods

The fad of Ayurveda is fast moving through the Western world and unfortunately calling something “ayurvedic” whether it’s a super food, super skincare blend or delicious herbal tea simply IS NOT “ayurvedic” without the consideration of the individual using the products at play. Many of these presentations and combinations are actually not recommended in Ayurvedic practice and much of this is playing with Indian herbs instead of understanding how these herbs work.

Rice Pudding

Rice Pudding is the creamiest, sweetest and life giving breakfast you can enjoy! This nourishing meal is recommended specifically to build ojas (energy container and immunity) especially in the winter season, after intense cleansing or Pancha Karma, during certain stages of pregnancy and after giving birth. While we eat it warm to support digestive function it is sweet, heavy, cooling and unctuous but with the addition of the spices listed below supportive to digestion and can be used specifically to build tissue health, reproductive function, strength and longevity. 

Thank you to Carlisle and Zaplin for a soul enriching experience. I am already looking forward to joining you on a next program. Namaste.


Such a beautiful bunch of beaming lights you are.


Thank you for giving my heart and soul a 5 day long hug. I can't wait to see you guys again. I miss the rainforest, the beach, the sun, but most of all, I miss all of you!
