“Yoga does not transform the way we see things, it transforms the person who sees.”
- B.K.S. Iyengar

Therapeutic yoga is a type of hatha yoga that intentionally invites awareness, breath, curiosity, and space into the structures of the physical body. The intention is to create a safe environment for you to explore the inner landscape of your being while becoming intimately acquainted with your boundaries and limitations. It is designed to cultivate a sense of deep listening for oneself as well as foster your body’s own healing response. It is a suitable practice for all ages, body types, and abilities.

During this week-long therapeutic yoga journey, we will practice the art of therapeutic yoga in a safe and sacred healing environment. Our morning asana practices will consist of hatha yoga sequences designed to open, empower, and awaken our bodies from the ground up. Each morning, we will practice a different tonifying yoga sequence, specifically paired with a theme, a mantra, and a particular region of the body. In the evening workshops, we will steep in practices for the subtle body with slow movement meditations, deep stretch posture classes, restorative yoga, and yoga nidra. 

Aside from our group work together, there will be plenty of time and space to SIMPLY BE. Your days can be spent liberally, taking eco-adventure tours, receiving world-class bodywork sessions, or simply basking in the sunlight at the luxurious saltwater pool. And above all, there will be plenty of time to SLOW DOWN, heal, nourish, and rest.

This coming winter, give yourself the greatest gift that you can imagine and awaken into your body in a new way! Open your heart, empower your body, and awaken your spirit on this Costa Rican yoga adventure of a lifetime. All bodies and levels of practitioners are welcome!
