About David Roma – our thai massage teacher

David Roma first discovered Traditional Thai Massage while on assignment piloting for a prominent communication company in the mid 1990’s. Based in Bangkok, flying a private jet, David began teaching yoga within the city limits. It was then that he began to experience Thai Massage as a healing modality to the body and a blissful state of well being.

David is a Nationally Board Certified Licensed Massage Therapist, a member of AMTA, Thai Healing Alliance, Certified Yoga Instructor and an Instructor for the Sunshine School of Massage in Chiang Mai, Thailand. NCBTMB symbolizes commitment, dedication and expertise. Massage therapist who are Board Certified have gone above and beyond licensure.

I have choreographed classes with profound techniques allowing the practitioner to be present and use their body effectively by using less energy while practicing the art of slowness. To become a true Thai massage practitioner, it is imperative to be mindful in listening to your heart. Your ability to use your intuition and move with good intention.

I’m honored to share and provide beautiful flowing transitions. In my bodywork practice, I am continuously elevating myself, always learning how to become a true artist from within.

Embrace the path of a Thai massage practitioner and with each breath and every pose, empower yourself to transform lives and create a ripple effect of positive change.

Our Retreat Center

Rancho Cerro Largo is a beautiful, rustic, eco-retreat center on San Agustinillo beach in Oaxaca, Mexico. Created from the desire to return to nature and connect with the earth and the elements, every detail of center offers us an opportunity to be immersed in the beauty of the natural world. It is truly an oasis where you can reconnect with yourself and nature.

Perched on a hill overlooking gorgeous San Agustinillo beach, our yoga sala and our cabañas invite tranquility and relaxation.

The views from the cabañas and main house are stunning.

After yoga class you can take the short walk down to the beach and hop in for a swim, soak in the sun, or take a stroll to town or to Mazunte beach.

 Some days you might want to lounge in your hammock on the porch of your cabaña, drink in the sea views, read a book, and take a nap!

Simple, natural, and eco-friendly are the guiding principles at Rancho Cerro Largo.

Our simple cabañas are rustic and charming.
There is no need for AC as the cabañas are open air design so that the ocean breeze will keep you cool.

Some cabañas are more open air than others!

All open air cabañas have mosquito nets over the beds. Others have screens on the windows and doors.

Water is scarce in the state of Oaxaca, so at the center they have “Organic” bathrooms with compostable toilets.

Instead of regular showers, we will bathe in the “old style” of dipping a coconut shell into a container of water and pouring it over your body.
