About Ricky

I have been teaching more than 20 classes a week in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada since 2005. I have taught and continue to teach individuals at any stage in their journey. I teach and practice many styles of yoga including ashtanga yoga, vinyasa(flow) yoga, Bikram’s(hot) yoga, hatha yoga, yin yoga, arm balances & inversions and more.


Why Join

Living in Canada we experience long winter months and can benefit from a getaway to warmer climates. A week with me will definitely help make it through another frigid season. I am passionate about yoga and have dedicated a significant amount of time learning the craft. I can’t wait to share my knowledge, challenge and help individuals take their practice to new levels. This will be done through deep introspective work that comes from regular practice. I will share lots of active and passive approaches to aid in ones development and healing.

I taught a retreat here last week and everything was perfect! Highlights from our trip— sunrise and sunset yoga on the deck overlooking the jungle and the ocean, super fun jungle hike, clean delicious meals, and lots of down time to connect, go the beach, and relax.

A few of my students said it was the BEST VACATION THEY HAVE EVER TAKEN. As a teacher/retreat leader, I felt so taken care of by the staff. Rodolfo, Alex, and Julien were so kind and made me feel very supported. Thank you so much for an incredible experience — take me back!!!

A truly superb experience. The location and facilities are beautiful, with tremendous views of the bay and sunsets. The food is delicious. The outside activities were most enjoyable. Every member of the staff was extremely helpful. The facility, location, food, and service combined to create a perfect setting for yoga and meditation, with ample opportunities to enjoy Puerto Vallarta as well.

I was thoroughly impressed with the property, the food, and the service that was offered to us for our retreat. Everything exceeded my expectations. Lucy and Julien were very attentive and had so much information for us! I’m not a vegan, however after eating the vegan, gluten free no sugar added menu I have started making more positive choices in my regular diet. The views were spectacular, for anyone needing a break from the busy lives they lead... I highly recommend going to unwind and disconnect in amapas. I was so excited for this trip and it went way beyond my expectations!

I recently participated in a yoga retreat at this beautiful location. At the top of a large hill are a number of villas nestled in the jungle that provide for gorgeous vistas and luxurious comfort. The beautiful and spacious living room and kitchen make you feel at home, while the retractable glass walls give you the feeling that you’re in nature, almost like a treehouse. The onsite chefs, Mario and Israel, provided for an outstanding food experience. I can’t wait for their cookbook! All the staff ensured that we had a great experience and took great care to meet our needs. Thank you!!!

Yoga Retreats & Co is in an absolutely beautiful jungle location. But still within easy reach of town and the beach (by foot or cheap taxi ride). The penthouse suite with its retractable glass doors lets you feel like you’re outside when you’re actually inside and you could wake up to the jungle view every morning. Food was absolutely delicious (both in looks and taste!). I particularly enjoyed the jungle hike excursion, followed by beach yoga and relaxation time. Thank you to all of the team for making my stay an awesome one. Highly recommend!
