Your Instructor

 

Marlize Joubert has been studying the healing arts most of her life. Her roots are in Yoga; (Vinyasa, Iyengar, Pranayama, Ashtanga, Yoga philosophy), Meditation modalities, Nutrition and the juicy mystery of life itself. Curiousity and honest self-exploration has always been a source of tremendous healing for Marlize and her calling to be of service to the world at large has been clear to her since a very young age. 

Marlize currently lives in sunny California where she teaches Yoga to a wide variety of people, privately and in Studios. Marlize also leads workshops on a monthly basis. You can check her website for her retreat destination schedule. Marlize is a qualified E-RYT500 teacher and leads yoga teacher trainings locally and soon globally. Meditation and breathing circles are another gift she offers to her students. The work is highly transformational and empowering.

 

 

“I did my 200 hour yoga teacher training with Marlize and I also have attended various workshops she has led and classes she has taught. The amount of presence and positive energy she brings is strongly felt by all in the room. In each one of her classes, I learn that much more about my own awareness and become more connected to the environment around me. Marlize is always learning and growing as a teacher to continue to give to her students. I continue to recommend students and fellow teachers of any level to take her classes. Marlize is creative, inspirational, and holds a positive and supportive space for her students to flourish.”

A deeply nourishing service retreat in Costa Rica with Karina Ayn Mirsky.

 

Take a sacred sabbatical from your busy life and the cold winter weather. Join Karina Ayn Mirsky on the Pacific shore of the lush Costa Rican Rainforest. This retreat offers an opportunity to restore your vital energy, revitalize your life, and reach into and out from your Heart.

 

Your Instructor

Karina Ayn Mirsky MA, ERYT, is a widely sought after senior ParaYoga teacher and trainer, a faculty member of the Himalayan Institute, and an educator at YogaInternational.com. Karina brings 17 years of teaching experience to her understanding about service to others and to ourselves.

 

The focus of this retreat stems from the Tantric view that the human body and mind is like a vessel; a container for “prana” or vital life force energy. When we serve others but don’t replenish our own internal resources, we can become depleted and susceptible to ill health.

 


When we regularly fill and refill our energetic vessel, we can joyFULLY and healthFULLY serve the world from “a cup overflowing.”

Held on the edge of the biggest rain forest preserve in the world, this retreat can help one relax, heal, grow, and come unstuck from life’s circumstances so that one may joyfully remember and experience Sat Nam. Between daily yoga classes enjoy strolling the peaceful beach, touring an animal preserve, repelling down a water fall, swimming in the crystalline chemical-free pool, or revitalizing with various spa treatments and sumptuous organic, local food.

Join Beth James and Cinda Lark for a yoga retreat to the beautiful Blue Osa in Costa Rica! Disconnect from the busyness of your life in the concrete jungle and reconnect to your true nature in the jungles of paradise!

 

We are thrilled to offer this ocean side yoga retreat surrounded by jungle to all that would like to come – immerse yourself in the natural beauty this place has to offer.

 

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.

YOGA RETREAT WITH SARAH EZRIN

When: March 14 - 21, 2015

“We all have an innate brightness, but sometimes the stresses of day-to-day life can dim that light. Yoga retreats are the perfect setting to recharge your inner battery. Twice daily yoga in an idyllic backdrop will leave you feeling light and replenished. We will start with strong vinyasa flow classes in the morning and evenings

“We all have an innate brightness, but sometimes the stresses of day-to-day life can dim that light. Yoga retreats are the perfect setting to recharge your inner battery. Twice daily yoga in an idyllic backdrop will leave you feeling light and replenished. We will start with strong vinyasa flow classes in the morning and evenings will alternate between workshop style and restorative practices.

 

What I love about Costa Rica as a retreat destination is the “choose your own adventure” aspect. You can spend your days at the beach unwinding in the sand and surfing the waves. Or the adventurers in the group will journey into the jungles to zip-line through the treetops, mountain bike, and hike. You could even do it all! This retreat will be exactly whatever you need it to be.

 

So get ready to practice lots of great yoga, eat delicious farm-to-table cuisine, make life-long friends, and laugh until you feel like you’ve done 100 navasanas. The Costa Ricans are infamous for the saying ‘pura vida’ which means ‘pure life’. Your ‘pura vida’ energy will be radiating brightly after this restorative and fun-filled retreat!”

PEACE IN PARADISE

When: MARCH 21-28, 2015

Connect to the Silence Within   Something transformative happens within the mind when you practice yoga twice daily, eat wholesome, organic meals prepared with love, and spend a week in one of the most biologically diverse places on earth … it’s called inner peace, and it’s our birthright.

Connect to the Silence Within

 

Something transformative happens within the mind when you practice yoga twice daily, eat wholesome, organic meals prepared with love, and spend a week in one of the most biologically diverse places on earth … it’s called inner peace, and it’s our birthright. We just have to be reminded sometimes . . .

 

Nestled between the Pacific Ocean and the Golfo Dulce, the Osa Peninsula is home to more than half of Costa Rica’s biosphere. Monkeys swing through ancient trees. Dolphin and whales dot the glassy Gulf coast. The richness of Coast Rica’s fauna and flora surrounds you in pristine beauty.

 

Activities range from relaxed to adventurous. Ease into your adventure with swimming in the Pacific, a Costa Rican chocolate tour, horseback riding, bird watching, or an Osa Wildlife Sanctuary Tour to watch monkeys and dolphins. Dial-up the intensity with a surf lesson on waves tailor-made for beginners, a rainforest adventure hike, mangrove kayak exploration, Cape Matapalo excursion, zipline tour, guided tree climbing, or even waterfall rappelling.

 

 

“Jodi’s emotional and spiritual intelligence has deepened and expanded my practice. I’ve taken classes from Jodi in Whitefish, Nepal, and Mexico and I can always count on her wisdom, laughter, and inspiration to move me further down my yogic path.”

 

Peggy K

“I have practiced Yoga for many years, though have never appreciated a teacher quite as much as I do Jodi. She is highly skilled at teaching mixed level groups and somehow makes everyone feel as if they are receiving a private session. She is a gifted communicator, has a deep understanding of asana and yoga philosophy, and a terrific sense of humor. More than any of that, she has a kind heart and a keen intuition. I’d follow her anywhere.”
