About the Yoga Teacher::Desirae Penton

Desirae’s journey with yoga started in 1997 while searching for a way to help recover from sports injuries. Desirae’s style of teaching aims to make yoga more accessible to every individual and to help create a practice balancing strength, flexibility and a deeper connection to one’s personal peace. After teaching for seven years, she opened Hidden Dragon Yoga in the summer of 2013. Since it’s very beginning, Desirae has seen what yoga is truly all about and loves being able to empower people to find their own strength.

Testimonials

“Hola Valentina, it was wonderful to spend some quality yoga time with you at Blue Osa. I came home feeling healthy and re-charged. You are a very fine teacher…I will enjoy hearing about your retreat (I’m not able to come back in June), and I will hope to do one in the future. Please get in touch if you are coming through Los Angeles this summer.”

~ Alex

“Valentina, I am still grieving that you left us in Miami. The studio is not the same without you. We miss the positive energy your brought which always infused the place. I want you to know I really enjoyed your class and I especially like your sequencing.”

~ Salley

“Ewa’s class is a melody from moment to moment, from beginning to grand finale. Poised and lovely, she starts the journey with a meditative explanation of the Mayan calendar date and an inspiration. Her gentle voice, breath and graceful movements guide your path throughout this multilevel experience. Every sound is soft, smooth and seamless. This blend of music, motion and breath filled with variety and skill is a symphony of health, mind, body and spirit that is guaranteed to glorify your day. Her Shavasana, set to etherial sounds is divine and blissful and, even more so, with an occasional oil and massage. Before and after class, her smile and personality consistently portray her message. Ewa Josefsson is goddess-like in demeanor and appearance, she is yoga personified.”

– Susan Rosler

costa-rica-yoga-retreat-iyengar-blue-osa-500x300A week of bliss through 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.

“I stumbled across Rebecca’s retreat somewhat randomly, and I’m incredibly grateful to have found such a remarkable teacher. Her thoughtfulness, luminosity and humor made me feel at home right away. Having the chance to soak up her wisdom for a whole week was such a treat. I left Costa Rica feeling renewed – physically, mentally and spiritually.”
~ Tessa

” Having a week to practice at Blue Osa with Rebecca felt like the ultimate luxury. The resort was spectacularly beautiful, right on a magnificent beach with breathtaking views. It even has a spa with masseuses with magic fingers. Even better was having a week to truly relax and breathe into my yoga practice and Rebecca’s teaching. I learned more about my practice in those 5 days of yoga than I can remember in a long time. Now that I’m home I’m still observing the effects.”
