Join Hollis in Costa Rica and celebrate The Divine Source within as we ‘Return to YOU’.
This retreat is designed to relax, renew and rejuvenate your mind, body & spirit and take you deep into the Heart of Yoga through a steady daily practice of asana, pranayama and meditation while listening to the rhythm and sounds of the surrounding jungle and ocean. In between yoga practices and retreat sessions, there will be opportunities to stroll the quiet beach, swim in the crystalline chemical-free lap pool, kayak, surf, lie in a hammock, zip-line through the jungle, take a chocolate tour or a boat ride to a nearby animal sanctuary – passing leaping dolphins along the way and a chance to pamper yourself in a variety of highly professional spa treatments.

blue osa presents: YOGA RETREAT WITH REBECCA COFFEY

When: April 20 - 26 2014

Slow down on the Osa Peninsula and listen in to your body, mind, heart and movement! Set this time for friendship, laughter, nature and rejuvenating work for body and soul!   It can be daunting to join a yoga retreat, especially if you don’t know anyone attending. Fortunately Rebecca’s retreat fosters a non-pretentious community that

Slow down on the Osa Peninsula and listen in to your body, mind, heart and movement! Set this time for friendship, laughter, nature and rejuvenating work for body and soul!

 

It can be daunting to join a yoga retreat, especially if you don’t know anyone attending. Fortunately Rebecca’s retreat fosters a non-pretentious community that is anything but a closed group. All ability-levels are welcome. The only requirement is a willing and open heart and mind. This is a great retreat to find your own stillness, but also do so with the spirit and play of warm people around you. The true beauty of Blue Osa and this April retreat, is the amazing inclusive community that’s formed. Take a leap, come alone or with a friend, and we’ll meet you there!

 

“I express my gratitude to Rebecca for bringing together the most wonderful group of people, not just those who were part of our practice and retreat, but also those who worked so hard to make us feel welcomed. It is very hard to pick a favorite part of the retreat, quiet mornings, lively evenings on the veranda, the sounds of nature, oooh, the spa area with pool and shade. At some point in that time they were all my favorite.”

 

~ Barbara

 

“I attended Rebecca’s retreat last April. I loved Rebecca’s yoga classes and guided instruction. I am a physical trainer and I like to “go” until I hurt or I physically can’t move anymore. Her practice helped me feel like I was accomplishing something very worthwhile without abusing myself. Her instruction helped me appreciate my body more. Rebecca has strong emotional intelligence. She is so in tune with her students and creates a magnificent flow. During her classes, while at Blue Osa, I felt so happy and burst with emotions on some occasions. It was also nice to be calm; in her classes, I found my calm.”

~ Lorren

 

Meet Your Instructor

Rebecca Coffey is a Kripalu yoga instructor. What is Kripalu Yoga? “I had practiced many styles of yoga before finding the Kripalu Yoga Center in Western MA. I felt drawn to Kripalu because of its underlying philosophy of self-compassion. In my experience, the Kripalu yoga tradition is inclusive of all body-types, abilities, life-stories and world-views. I believe that it is within self-compassion and in a community that fosters inclusiveness and not competition there is great potential for personal growth and healing. It is my intention as a yoga instructor to hold space for my students to safely go within their bodies, minds and hearts to reflect, heal and grow.” ~ Rebecca visitwww.kripalu.org

 

Rebecca is a Kripalu yoga instructor, registered ADTA dance movement therapist, spiritual teacher, meditation guide and community gatherer. She is the founder and owner of her business, Bravedancing, through which she offers workshops, trainings, retreats and weekly classes in a variety of movement and healing modalities. www.bravedancing.com

An esteemed yoga teacher and celebrity trainer in Los Angeles, Elise is known for her versatile and athletic sequencing and deeply philosophical class themes. She inspires her students to find their inner strength and joy, while shining their light and following their bliss.

 

Bring your sense of adventure to these stunning jungles and beaches, where the theme of our retreat will be the battle cry of Costa Rica: “Pura Vida!”. Literally translating to “the pure life”, ‘Pura Vida!’ embodies the idea of living a full and authentic life of joy, wonder and adventure.

 

There will be plenty of energetic and empowering vinyasa flows and workshop style classes, but the focus of this retreat is just as much our “off the mat” adventures! We’ll practice finding our own personal ‘Best Life’ as we explore the lush jungles and stunning beaches of the area. We’ll get to practice balance and fearlessness in the surf, and enjoy the meditative beauty of nature. There will be personal intention setting, jungle trekking, and endless opportunities to connect with nature.

 

Expect delicious local foods, phenomenal yoga, and lots of outdoor time. Expect to open your eyes to the wonder and beauty that surrounds you, and to look for small miracles everywhere. Expect to channel your inner champion and adventure through the jungles and surf. Expect to breathe, and flow and journal. Expect to open your heart and mind to staying in a place of happiness always. Expect to be changed…. and maybe even transformed.

 

What’s included: Elise Joan May 10-17, 2014
Yoga classes twice daily with Elise Joan
Morning Jungle Trek
Three meals a day
Accommodations at Blue Osa
Transportation to and from Puerto Jimenez airport

with Ewa Josefsson and Valentina Rose

 

 

 

“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.”

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.

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.”

Your Instructor

 

Meet Carrie:

“Hi! I’m Carrie, co-director of Bella Vita Yoga’s Teacher Trainings and Retreats. We are so pleased that you are interested in sharing in our heart-centered mission!

 

My yoga education includes 200 and 500 hour certification through Wilmington Yoga Center, current participation in 500 hour training through Asheville Yoga Center, and full Thai Yoga Therapy Practitioner certification through deonThai School of Thai Yoga Therapy.

 

I love teaching creatively flowing vinyasa and yin/deep stretch classes that integrate breath awareness and mindfulness into practices that both challenge and support my students. I also adore working one-on-one with Thai Therapy and private yoga clients to address individual needs and goals. Through the evolution of Bella Vita Yoga, Jillian and I have had the immense pleasure and honor of hosting yoga retreats emphasizing joy, connection, and living the Beautiful Life through Yoga, as well as designing an abundant 200-hour Teacher Training program saturated with our love and desire to empower teachers to teach and live yoga in a way that celebrates the Bella Vita!”

 

 

Meet Jillian:

“Hi! I’m Jillian! co-director of Bella Vita Yoga’s Teacher Trainings and Retreats. Bella Vita Yoga is meant to be an opportunity to spread your wings and fly.

 

My yoga education includes a 200 hour Certification from Asheville Yoga Center with Stephanie Keach and a Yoga Warriors International Certification for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder in War Veterans from Lucy Cimini of Central Mass Yoga and Wellness.

 

My love of teaching yoga is something that I want to share with you! I find I am most “at home” when teaching Vinyasa Flow with a creative, organic and heart centered approach as well as Gentle Yoga, where we can focus on the “whole body”s” system from the ground-up, inside-out.
We look forward to sharing the gift of yoga with you and those joining you on this beautiful life-journey!

 

 

“I truly enjoyed this experience. From the moment I arrived you both made sure everything was just right. I like that there were no expectations of us. We could do whatever we wanted. The relaxed approach was exactly what I needed. Every yoga class was so beautiful. There was such positive energy. I didn’t stop smiling the entire time. It truly was magical to be together with so many people that have a passion for yoga. I feel lucky to have had the opportunity to share this experience with both of you!!! Thank you again for making this happen!!!!”

Join us on this playful empowering journey into your higher self.   Through the flow of Hatha, Kundalini, and Meditation this retreat is designed to help one remember their true self, their Sat Nam.

Join us on this playful empowering journey into your higher self.

 

Through the flow of Hatha, Kundalini, and Meditation this retreat is designed to help one remember their true self, their Sat Nam. The Sanskrit mantra, Sat Nam, refers to the radiant pure essence that is the unique, incorruptible, pure heart of every soul. The circumstances of daily life often cause us to forget our True Self, leaving us confused, anxious, depressed, tired and/or physically compromised. 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.

 

Your Instructor:

Kerry Smith is a Naturopathic Healer as well as the owner and founder of Healing Earth Studio that is nestled in Pennsylvania’s rolling countryside. Her yoga is an adventurous, intuitive, musical flow that constantly adjusts to meet her student’s needs. Her personal journey with autoimmune disease has led her to rigorously study wellness from many traditions and transform her own experiences into compassionate, inspiring, and effective healing for all who work with her. Her knowledge of Ayurveda, Herbs, Indigenous Cultures, and Spirituality is vast, and just being in her presence is often enough to begin the process of bringing oneself into balance.
