COSTA RICA RETREAT: FINDING STILLNESS

January 2017 Dates TBA

Create space in your life and enjoy 5 nights in Costa Rica resting into its natural beauty and quiet then learn ways to carry that sense of internal stillness back into your daily life.

This 10 person gathering will be held at a private retreat center nestled in the hills five miles from the beach town of Tamarindo. The retreat fee includes lodging, vegetarian meals, yoga, meditation and yoga nidra.

Along with yoga, meditation and discussion, we want to help you quiet your mind through out of the ordinary experiences in Costa Rica as well. Included in the retreat fee are excursions that will be tailored to meet the group’s needs such as sunset ocean sail, a night time adventure watching turtles nest, a day long volcano/waterfall/hot spring hike and daily trips to Tamarindo. Not included are airfare to Liberia and ground transportation to the retreat center.

Contact Penny with any questions and reserve early. This will sell out. Pura Vida!

ASHTANGA YOGA SECOND SERIES INTENSIVE

Expand your Ashtanga Yoga practice as you are guided through this introduction to the Second Series. It’s not harder, it just begins focusing on more back bends with modifications for all. In the Ashtanga Yoga system the philosophy is that the forward bends focused on in the Primary Series prepare the body for the back bends of the Second Series. This is an excellent and structured way to provide your body with balance and improve back discomfort. Some experience with Ashtanga or Vinyasa Yoga is helpful.

YOGA SUTRAS STUDY INTENSIVE

Written 2500 years ago, Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras is the foundation of modern yoga and details techniques to quiet our minds. This text instructs yoga as a form of psychology, a set of predictable scientific methods that consistently helps us drop out of our repetitive loops of thinking and fosters an awareness of the sense of peace that is always just under the surface of our noisy minds. During this workshop we will read through a portion of these writings and discuss how this ancient wisdom applies to our lives. It is helpful but not required to have a copy of The Yoga Sutras translated by Satchidananda

BHAGAVAD GITA INTENSIVE

The Bhagavad Gita is an ancient text that acknowledges and discusses the challenge we all face in developing an inner sense of connection while simultaneously living with two feet in the outer world and all the duties and responsibilities that entails. This poetic and incredibly beautiful writing lays the framework for how to live our purpose as we move through our daily lives with a sense of awe, devotion and connection to what has always been with us, guiding us and adoring us. It is helpful but not required to have a copy of The Bhagavad Gita translated by Satchidananda.
