Lead Teacher


Born in Canada, Corinne (Coco) started to practice yoga more than 20 years ago after the birth of her son.  With a background in both practicing and teaching ballet and contemporary dance for more than 16 years, Corinne warmed up to yoga easily. For her, yoga became much more than a physical practice; she felt very soon the connection between body, mind and soul.

In 2005, Corinne traveled for the first time to Mysore, India.  She studied and was certified as an Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga teacher with V. Sheshadri, B.A. International Yoga Asana Champion, traditional Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga by the system of T. Krishnamacharia, Shri K. Pattabhi Jois.

Lead Teacher

Michael Gannon

In the late 90s, the practice of yoga lured Michael Gannon away from chaotic deal making in the American advertising and music industry. He subsequently spent 10 years studying in India with Sri K. Pattabhi Jois (1915 – 2009) learning the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd series of the traditional Ashtanga Vinyasa system. Authorized directly by Jois in 2001 to teach, Gannon has taught in over 50 countries on five continents.

Having trained over 500 teachers worldwide in Ashtanga and Power Vinyasa Yoga, his unique teaching style makes the transformational powers of yoga accessible to all with the desire to learn.

Gannon additionally uses a broad range of meditation and breathing practices to guide people in transcending their self perceived limitations.

Taking on the playful moniker long ago, “The Yoga Dealer”, he founded the Yoga Dealer Brand in 2005. His live teachings have been extended over the years via many DVDs, the first ever Ashtanga Yoga App on iPhone/Android, and the online video platform yogadealer.com/practiceonline. His first book, Ashtanga Yoga Made Simple — A Practice For All Levels, was published in 2018.

On his home beach in Mexico, Gannon designed, built, and directs one of the most beautiful yoga schools on the planet, Yogaloft Playa del Carmen. When he’s not traveling, it is here that he spends time at the feet of his three most powerful gurus — his daughter and two sons.
