About the Retreat
This intensive is specifically for current yoga teachers and serious practitioners who are looking to deepen their practice while relaxing and recharging. With twice daily practices and several workshops, this will be a chance to fully immerse yourself into your own practice and re-inspire your teaching. Irene will teach a variety of vinyasa style classes, as well as a few “non-traditional” classes. There will be workshops on inversions, backbends and hip openers, as well as chances to apply what you’ve learned into the vinyasa classes. In between classes you can relax by the beach or pool, or take a short walk into town. There will also be a professional photographer (Brooke Michelle Jackson) available to capture photos during practice.
About the Teacher
Irene is passionate about Yoga Asana as a tool for deep connection. She sees the body as a puzzle, and therefore a chance for self discovery. Over the past 7 years Irene has studied Ashtanga Yoga, Rocket Yoga, Yoga Nidra, as well as various styles of Vinyasa Yoga. She has also studied with hand balancers, circus performers, movement artists, and contortionists to expand her understanding of the body. Using this combined knowledge, Irene teaches in a way that will help you understand your own body better, so that you can begin to apply that same knowledge into your practice and teaching.

“Rarely in life do we take the time to invest in ourselves, in our growth, in our restoration, and in our dreams. This last week with Irene was exactly that! I cannot say enough about how highly educational this week has been and how many things I learned, and that makes this training invaluable. She lead classes that focused on furthering and deepening our own personal practices as well as thoughtfully engaged us on how to strengthen our teaching abilities with new and innovative perspectives. As a teacher and a human, Irene is the utmost example of how to lead with integrity and character. She was always engaged in students’ needs, mindful of the varying degrees of skill and practice. She integrated multiple styles of asana practice as well as yoga nidra, and explored interesting journaling topics. If practicing under the guidance of Irene is a thought floating around in your mind, do not hesitate! I whole heartedly recommend this training. The Casa Om retreat center, staff and the location of Puerto Morelos is amazing and not something to be missed! You deserve it! “ - Sarah
"My primary goal as you know going into the week was to get advice and tools for developing a better home practice- and I think that was an overall theme of the retreat for everyone. I can say that in the weeks since I have been home, I have practiced more, and practiced more deeply than I have before. I am now comfortable coming home from work and knowing that I don't need to rush off to a studio class to get a practice in for the day. Overall I thought it was a beautiful experience, Casa Om is definitely amazing, and I liked the different subjects that we were able to explore in the week I was there." - Julia
"After an intensive with Irene feel that I have been given the tools needed to thrive as a yoga instructor both in my personal practice and in sharing the wisdom with others. Her down to Earth attitude and wealth of knowledge make learning an easy process. I would highly recommend her retreats and workshops to anyone looking to learn and grow as a student or instructor." - Jenessa
“My week spent at Casa Om with Irene was nothing short of amazing! The facility was absolutely incredible, with great accommodations, a gorgeous yoga studio, incredibly accommodating staff, and just a three minute walk to the beach. Irene herself was such an inspiration and I truly learned so much in the short time we spent together. Her teaching style allows for open communication and questions in the workshop setting, which helped me to grow as a student and a teacher. Thank you Irene and the entire Casa Om staff (including the amazing photographer Brooke!) for an informative and transformative week in paradise!” - Dudley
"Training under Irene’s leadership was tremendously valuable to me both as a current full-time yoga teacher and practitioner. Not only is she extremely knowledgable and articulate in her craft, she is also a wonderful human and her warm energy easily invites you near. I left this training feeling validated and inspired, and am very interested in pursuing other training opportunities she provides as she continues to spread her light and passion around the globe.” - Margaret
