The Facility

Over the course of 3 years, RBY&W Founders  (Meg and Peter) have been immersed in a 2500 sq ft indoor/outdoor renovation project in the heart of Isla Mujeres’ downtown district. The finished product is unlike any other space on Isla, boasting 2 Indoor classrooms, Treatment rooms and 1 Large palapa space able to facilitate 40 students.  Adjacent to the wellness center is a large apartment welcome to visiting guest teachers, healers and musicians.  Meg and Peter were involved in every step of the process and were dedicated to making the project as Green as possible.  The facility is 50 meters to the main ferry dock of Isla Mujeres, and a short ferry ride to the mainland.
