MEET OUR TRIBE

 
Robin Berger
Owner | Pilates Instructor | Barre Instructor
Raised in NYC, Robin has always had a love of the beach and flair for fashion and styling.  Opening up an eco-fashion & lifestyle boutique has been her goal ever since attending Parsons The New School of Design in NYC for Sustainable Fashion. It was, therefore, no surprise when she decided to leave the city and head south to open up Mermaids in Tamarindo, Costa Rica.  She is an avid barre and pilates practitioner and has completed her training in barre through Multi Style Yoga International and pilates at Pilates Nosara at The Bodhi Tree. Her high energy and love of fitness will be sure to get you up and moving!
Marcela Nuñez
 Studio Manager | Yoga Teacher | Barre Instructor
Marcela has been a disciplined Yoga student since 1995 when she developed her personal home practice studying with books, videos and the occasional passerby instructor in her small beach town. Feeling the void of a light-hearted yoga teacher in her life, she got certified in 2009 guided by the knowledge of internationally respected Noah Mazé, Sianna Sherman, Kenny Graham and others who continue to inspire her practice and teachings.

Her creative and coherent sequences have the right balance between personal freedom and thoughtful, responsible alignment with emphasis on breathing and attention to muscular integration. Her playful classes are in fluent English/Spanish.

She’s a contagious optimistic who loves nature, music, animals, the little surprises of life and sharing the transformational science of yoga, which for her it’s essentially the way to a peaceful and joyous life journey.

Virginia Fugman
Yoga Teacher |
Virginia went to her first yoga class in high school at her local YMCA in Dubuque, Iowa and fell asleep during Savasana. Ever since she has used yoga to supplement her other sports: swimming, running, and rowing. It wasn’t until her pregnancy that forced her to hang up her running shoes and gave her the space to focus internally - mind, heart, and body as a complete whole.  Yoga is always a practice, never a perfect so in her classes you’ll always find modifications for all levels. Even though we are practicing as a group, we are all on our own, individual, personal yoga journey. So whether you’ve been practicing for 50 years or today is your first yoga class, come, practice, spend time with you again, replenish your cup.
