Join Beth James & Cinda Lark for their 2nd annual Jungle Prana Yoga retreat. After the sold-out success of last year, these two are back for more jungle yoga paradise. This retreat is full of everything blissful & free~~ yoga twice daily with an emphasis on vinyasa yoga but also look forward to learning much about asana, pranayama, partner yoga, inversions, yin & now Cinda teaches Dharma yoga! Great company, come gather as a family for a week & watch how you will transform.

 

Together we welcome the slow laid back pace of the jungle to help us slowly release deep old patterns of busyness & stress.

 

About Your Instructors

Beth James has been in love with the practice & philosophy of yoga for
over a decade. Without sounding cliche, Beth will wholeheartedly tell you that
yoga has changed her life.

 

Seeking to share in her passion and joy for the practice Beth has been spreading
kindness as a teacher for over 8 years.

 

Having studied astanga, vinyasa and hatha yoga; Beth incorporates a beautiful balance of effort and ease into each one of her classes. Whether in a slow and soothing yin or a sweaty intense vinyasa, students can count on creative intuitive flows, soulful music as well as yogi philosophy mixed with personal insight and FUN!

 

~~ When not practicing on the mat Beth can be found doing almost anything outdoors in nature, sharing vegan delights in the kitchen, and loving life with her family yogi musician partner, Jojo the husky and their newest yogini to the family daughter Aura Lavender.

 

Cinda Lark, E-RYT was former gymnast and dancer. However vinyasa yoga first challenged her with the physicality of the practice. She felt immediately at home on the four corners of her mat and soon realized there was much more to this practice, that the entire world was her yoga mat! Mindfully, things began to fall into place. Entering teacher training almost immediately upon finding yoga, she soon found so much more through this ancient philosophy. Teaching at several studios and a variety of classes including Vinyasa, Hatha, Ashtanga, Yin, as well as hybrid classes like Yoga with Weights and VinKick gave her the solid foundation to open her own studio.

 

Opening Breathe Yoga Studio in 2012 was a natural extension of her desire to share her passion of yoga in a way that she could make accessible to everybody. There are Power Vinyasas on her schedule as well as Gentle MettaYoga classes for people with special needs. Breathe is also a Registered Yoga School through Yoga Alliance. Helping people find a balance of ease and effort not only on their mat but in their lives. Cinda specializes in inversions and arm balances. They are cued in almost all of her classes to some degree. Cinda is also a Graphic Designer and Photographer. She is a mom to two beautiful children and hopes to eventually train them to teach yoga as well. She will tell you that being a mom and teaching yoga are the two most rewarding jobs and she is grateful to have been graced with the ability to do both.

How to make Reserve Your Space for this Yoga Retreat

 

 

“Our Jungle Prana Yoga Retreat was very enjoyable. My husband and I had been to Blue Osa before on a vacation, we explored, savored the beauty and even did a bit a yoga.

 

After returning home, we got more involved in yoga and decided we wanted to branch out and try a retreat. So we explored the choices that Blue Osa had to offer. Jungle Prana stood out to us and we signed up.

 

We went not knowing Beth, Cinda or anyone else signed up to go. On our arrival Beth and Cinda were so warm, friendly and welcoming. We were exposed to a variety of styles of yoga with love, fun, sweat, and laughter. Partner yoga was an all time favorite, challenging but amazed that we could do it! The yoga studio has a breathtaking view along with an ocean breeze. Free time every day was wonderful. My husband really enjoyed the horseback ride and waterfall repelling adventure. For me, I loved exploring and swimming in the ocean but I cherished our last evening fire near the meditation hut. We came away with a much better knowledge of our yoga practice, and strengthened ability. We got to make so many new friends. We had such a great experience we signed up to go again!”

A week of bliss though yoga, the comfort and beauty of Blue Osa, and the power of Pura Vida.

 

Through the practice of asana and pranayama, we become familiar with ourselves: our tendencies, patterns and rhythms.  When we re~align ourselves physically, we are essentially bringing into harmony the different sheaths ( Koshas) of the body: physical, energetic, mental, intellectual, spiritual. The Elements of the external are a reflection of the internal, and are associated with the senses, organs of perception and different layers and levels of our being. Through asana we redefine the elements within, we experience the qualities of Earth, Water, Fire, Air and, most importantly, Space … Learning to be in and of our human predicament ; living between the Earth and the heavens , between the past and the future, and the timelessness of the present moment.

 

This retreat is suitable for people of all levels of practice.

Meet Your Yoga Teacher

 

“I started practicing yoga in 1999 and have been teaching at Yoga Works since 2003. I teach public classes and personal clients in Los Angeles, as well as travel nationally and internationally teaching the Yoga Works 200-Hour and 500-Hour Teacher Training Programs. The heart of my teaching is alignment-based vinyasa taught with thematic sequences that tell a story and that challenge students to slow down.

 

I am passionate about teaching the nuts and bolts of the physical practice, as well as weaving in the philosophy of the “Eight Limbs of Yoga.” I enjoy creating a space for students where they can define their own meaning of yoga. My hopes are to inspire students to look beyond the physical and to use the whole practice of yoga as a means to deepen the connection with one’s true self. Ultimately yoga teaches us to go inward, and by creating an attitude of contentment, we are able to embrace all of the parts of our self and can harmonize with the world around us. We can be grateful for not just one thing, but everything. The practice of yoga teaches us how to live with an open heart and with a willingness to dig deeper.”

She will teach you functional anatomy and its’ important role in innovative and intelligent sequencing, adjustments and modifications for all populations. Transform your yoga practice and your life in this three- week 200 hour yoga teacher training in beautiful Costa Rica!

 

YOGA STREAM 200 HOUR YA - CERTIFIED TEACHER TRAINING WITH LARA HEIMANNLara Heimann, founder of YogaStream, invites you to a life-changing 21 days filled with yoga practice anatomy, training and adventure for the spirit! Each day will begin with a theme-based two-hour vinyasa practice followed by relevant lessons in anatomy, asana (both basic and advanced), adjustments, methodology, finding your teaching voice, and yogic theory. After completing YogaStream Teacher Training Program, you’ll walk away with knowledge of anatomy and kinesiology and the confidence to teach your own classes and/or deepen your personal practice. Your practice will evolve (complete with core work, arm balances and inversions) using the same sustainable philosophy with which you will teach others. The YogaStream Teacher Training Program is a unique, proven method that develops confident, creative, and knowledgeable teachers while maintaining the fun and play that initially drew you to the mat!

 

This 200 hour yoga teacher training course structure will give you confidence in:

  • Anatomy, biomechanics of yoga and functional movement
  • Ancient and modern/practical yogic principles including meditation
  • Intelligent and creative class sequencing
  • The art of adjustments
  • How to plan a class from start to finish
  • Working with different populations, injuries, etc.

 

Lara approaches ancient yogic principles and philosophies in a practical way with the intention of fostering passion, compassion, creativity, and skill into your practice and teaching; her highly focused training program empowers students to truly advance their practice in a strong, sustainable manner and gives them confidence to share the yoga joy with others.

 

 

“YogaStream really is a yoga revolution in the yoga world. It combines classical yoga with kinesiology and anatomy. The intense yet intelligent sequences always help me to enter the meditative state of the mind quickly. With the knowledge that I have learned from the teacher training, I am able to help people with their posture, alignment and to design an appropriate exercise to reduce their physical pain and improve their overall well-being. Personally I am getting stronger in my body, mind and spirit everyday with practicing YogaStream. I feel so strong and capable that I actually can change the whole world.”

 

From Ariel W, a yoga teacher with a previous 200 and 500 hour training.

“YogaStream teacher training was amazing! I left the training feeling extremely confident that I can create intelligent, anatomy based yoga classes which will challenge students while keeping them safe. Lara has such amazing anatomy and yoga knowledge I would not want to learn from anyone else! This experience was life-changing.”

You know that feeling… that “post savasana feeling” at the end of a great yoga practice? What if you could cultivate that for a whole week and then take it home with you as an inner souvenir? Experience the power of a yoga retreat in a natural peaceful setting.

 

A yoga retreat can change the way you operate in the world…forever.

 

Begin with meditation and yoga each day. Your mind and body begin to shift, change, heal. The sounds of nature will soothe you during the day.

 

Enjoy a walk on the beach or explore all that Costa Rica has to offer. Eat nourishing, healthy food. Make new friends or reconnect with old friends… lingering over great conversation and laughter. Close each day with another yoga session and meditation.

 

At the end of the retreat, your body, mind and spirit will be refreshed and re-inspired.

 

You will wanrt to take that “post-savasana feeling” home with you.
