Playa Troncones was discovered just about 20 years ago and it is known for it’s tranquil, and untouched environment,  with the ability to walk the stretch of the beach without running into many people. The landscape is beautiful, open, and hammock laden, with a few eco-lodges and restaurants strew about. Close by, there are two sea caves called Troncones and Majahua and a waterfall called Cascadas Artesianas.  A true oasis.


Yoga Teacher , Reiki & Energy Worker, Integrative Nutrition Coach

Alana Roach

Alana’s love for yoga came from firsthand experience with just how powerful the practice is. “In 2009, Yoga found me.” Inside the studio, she experienced a deep sense of belonging, but the most profound part was what happened after. “I felt as though I was at true peace. I finally knew what the word meant. Until that moment, I had just understood it cerebrally. There is something profound to be said about peace dropping into the heart.” With a background in ballet starting at the age of 2 that continued through age 15, Alana realized that she had been doing yoga even then. “The girls in the dance studio and I used to see who could hold full lotus the longest when I was just 4. I realize now that I have been training to practice and teach yoga my whole life”

In 2012, her journey took her to India for 3 months where she trained with incredible locals near the Himalayas and fell into a rhythm of practice that felt sustaining. She knew that when She returned from the East, she would begin in creating a life as a teacher of Yoga to help others journey to find whole health and well-being in the mind, body, and soul. She has been teaching ever since. With over 2,000 hours of teaching experience, E-RYT certified teacher trainer and teacher of Vinyasa with a focus in Ashtanga Yoga and her personal studies of many holistic modalities including integrative breathwork, pranayama, plant-based nutrition, tantric studies, and various yoga theory and practicum ranging from restorative to advanced vinyasa and everything in between, Alana teaches all levels and all ages. In

“I want to reach you at the level of your needs, and I try to communicate with you on a mind, body, soul level to find out what that is. We co-create a beautiful practice together. My students are my best teachers. In that light, we are co-teaching each other in every moment. It is really a beautiful experience.”

This was a great place for Yoga lovers, it’s magical. For surfers, it’s a dream come true. She went beyond and above , and was always there making sure we were taken care of. What a wonderful experience.” – Lynne Roye


“Thanks to Caileigh’s nutrition support and exercise guidance I feel my healthiest EVER! When I began working with Caileigh, I was in chronic pain and my body was bloated. No doctor could help me. Now, after working with Caileigh, I am in my fourth month with nearly no pain, and my body is leaner and stronger and I feel more in touch with myself than ever. The best part is that it was all natural. I feel great and I can’t stop saying thank you for the lifestyle changes Caileigh helped me make. She’s simply the best!” – Daniel Cabrera

Massage Techniques Available


Thai massage is believed to have been developed by Buddhist monks in Thailand as a healing modality 2,500 years ago. Thai massage uses passive stretching and gentle pressure along the body’s energy lines to increase flexibility, relieve muscle and joint tension and balance the body’s energy systems. Thai massage is both deeply relaxing and energizing. This form of bodywork is performed on the floor, and the client wears comfortable clothes that allow for movement. No oils are used. (Scroll down to watch a short video of Thai Massage in action!)


Swedish massage is the most common type of massage in the Western world, and the perfect match for a relaxing vacation. The primary goal of this massage technique is to relax the entire body. This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. But this therapy goes beyond relaxation: Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, and improving circulation and flexibility, all while easing tension.


Shiatsu is a massage technique originating in ancient Japan; the name means “finger pressure.” The principles of the massage are based on the acupuncture points, and pressure is carefully applied to each point using the hands. The pressure stimulates and balances Meridians (the pathways through which life energy flows.) This natural system of energetic touch supports physical health, well being and personal development.

Deep Tissue

A deep tissue massage is designed to relieve severe tension in the muscle and the connective tissue or fascia. This type of massage focuses on the muscles located below the surface of the top muscles. Deep tissue massage is often recommended for individuals who experience consistent pain, are involved in heavy physical activity (such as athletes), and patients who have sustained physical injury.

Also available:

Detoxifying Massage, Stress Relieving Massage, and Craniosacral Therapy
