About Casco Yoga

The People

Originally from Holland, Maya received her 200 hour teacher training in Nicaragua. While deepening her practice and widening her knowledge, fate presented love, a Panamanian by the name of Edwin. Following the path of destiny, the couple established a home in the heart of the Casco Viejo in Panama City. Together as partners in marriage and in business, they strive to be a positive force in their community. 

The Studio

Once in their new home, both Maya and Edwin’s passion for yoga sent them in search of a space to practice and for Maya to teach, but to no avail. In a series of serendipitous events, their quest to fulfill this desire lead to the realization of Casco Yoga and the studio came together in a whirlwind. With Edwin’s business background and Maya’s focus on yoga, they combined their talents. From conception to fruition, Casco Yoga came to be in a matter of a month. Realizing the absence of mental, spiritual, and physical healing within the community the studio quickly developed an offering of a variety of classes, workshops and events for all levels. In addition to yoga, classes in barre, pilates and tai chi are available as well as massage. 

The Philosophy

As a yoga studio and health center, Casco Yoga is committed to bringing the art of healing through movement and massage to residents and anyone passing through. We immensely believe the practice of yoga is greatly beneficial in our lives. We strive to share our intention of love and light with our community by creating a blissful and wholesome space for people to come together and share their practice. Casco Yoga believes in an ever-evolving, varied and approachable program. Our classes are lead by a professional and dedicated staff. Classes are taught in English. All are welcome.

  • I went to this place twice in the week I was in Panama. It was so nice to have a convenient place to go to yoga in the middle of my trip, to be able to relax and stretch between long bus rides. Maya was so nice and professional!
