About Casco Yoga
Casco Yoga was co-founded by Maya and Edwin Davis. 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 2016-2020
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 yoga studio came together in a whirlwind opening January 2016. 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. Over the years the studio grew in community and space. Adding the commercial space that became available next door in 2017 doubled the studio space. From going to Taco Tuesdays after hot yoga together to having wine after class on Friday’s and going on retreats together we created a strong bond that is still palpable today.
Online Live Classes 2020 – now
The pandemic had us close down from one day to the next, though it didn’t stop us. We knew we had a strong community and responsibility to stay together, therefore we started teaching online the very next day after closing our physical doors. Going 2 years now we have a wonderful community online, students living all over the world not only in Panama. We’ve been able to practice together even when you are visiting family or are on vacation.
In-Person Classes 2020 – now
Both you and us are still craving in-person classes, when we are in Panama City we offer classes at the beach in Casco Viejo. Stay tuned through our WhatsApp announcement group (message 6265-5588 to get in), the schedule on the website or social media.

I Love Casco Yoga
A gem of a studio in the heart of Casco Viejo! Maya has created such a wonderful community of welcoming and supportive yogis, and the studio really does feel like my second home in Panama.
This is a welcoming yoga studio for every body, every level, and every individual. Practices can help the beginner and challenge the advanced student. There are a variety of classes to suit all tastes, and visitors and travellers are welcome! I love going here and it has honestly become the highlight of my week.
If you like yoga, want to advance your practice and find yourself in panama then you must go to Casco Yoga. Maya is one of the most gifted yoga teachers out there and she offers a very challenging class ... one that will leave you smiling and craving more ! Casco yoga is worth a trip to Panama!
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!
