Yoga with Robin returns to VerdEnergia!
This retreat will focus on Reconnection! Reconnection with the Earth, with your Body, with your Breath, with your Spirit. Our physical asana classes bring a renewed confidence in and relationship with your body. Meditation and study encourage your exploration of self, spirit, and inner truth.
Break free from the bitter North American winter this January to a sunny, prana-filled deep jungle in Costa Rica!
January 3-9, 2016 | Verdenergia -- an Organic Permaculture Farm in Lanas, Puriscal, Costa Rica
This all-inclusive 7-night yoga retreat in the heart of the Costa Rican jungle will nourish your soul, provide rest and restoration to your body and overworked mind, and ignite your passion for living your best life!
This retreat will focus on Reconnection! Reconnection with the Earth, with your Body, with your Breath, with your Spirit. Practice and play in the bamboo open-air yoga studio. Meditate, study, or relax and unwind at the rancho and casita sun-soaked valley overlooks. Your private accommodations are shining examples of sustainable construction and Earth-based designs, just meters from a spring-fed swimming pool.
At your own pace, participate in twice-daily Yoga classes (meditative yin, chakra balancing, dosha yoga, or uplifting and strength-building Vinyasa depending on the day), daily meditation or philosophy discussion, Ayurveda workshops, and transformative Yoga Nidra! Robin will make sure you're comfortable and inspired to enjoy YOU, each and every day, in this sweet jungle home.
In your plentiful free time, lounge in waterfalls surrounded by lush green flora, hike to rivers or jungle overlooks, or swim in the crisp and clean pool. You can also learn about sustainability and permaculture basics through farm tours led by VerdEnergia's permaculture wizards and land owners. Other activities include making your own chocolate and taking a day-trip to the Pacific Ocean where you can relax, soak in the sun, and practice yoga on the beach!
