Winter Yoga & Meditation Retreat 8-day
Winter is a time of deep stillness and inner reflection. We can use winter’s introspective energy to gain clarity and insight to achieve spiritual growth and understanding. Willpower and determination are required to look deep into the darkness of this season to face our deepest fears, discover our hidden realms, and unlock our unconscious minds. In this week long retreat we will practice daily meditation and use specifically tailored yoga practices and sequences to create inner-strength, tranquility, focus and contemplation during this powerful time of year.
In this retreat we will invite, instruct and inspire you to:
- Strengthen your ability to be focused, assiduous, and devoted to a spiritual path
- Cultivate radiant energy and inner focus
- Experience deep stillness and inner peace
- Revive, renew & relax!

Costa Rica Yoga Alignment Retreat
As we address body alignment through different approaches to yoga, (ayurvedic, the chakras, shamanic energy concepts, crystals, etc.), we take the alignment concept beyond our physical beings and connect with the heavens and cosmos through the exploration of astrological concepts and celestial bodies. We will build our foundation and feel rooted to Mother Earth and seal in our work by learning the secrets of one of the planet’s most biodiverse habitats: Luna Nueva, a private rainforest reserve. Luna Nueva is an organic, biodynamic herbal estate, providing ecotourism and harmony in the rainforest of Costa Rica while demonstrating a tropical example of sustainable living. A spring-fed pool and hot tub heated by the sun will soothe your senses as you transform yourself through easy healing yoga. We provide all-organic, vegetarian meals created from Luna Nueva's own fruit and vegetable gardens.
