Balance, Restore, Rejuvenate

 

This week at Blue Osa in Costa Rica is all about self-care. Practice gentle yoga, meditate, frolic on the beach, relax in the spa or enjoy the sweetness of doing nothing.

Aida has inspired thousands of students for over 30 years to live and experience life to the fullest through the practice of the art and science of yoga and meditation.

 

Why come to Blue Osa for a yoga retreat?

Something happens when one practices yoga in a pristine natural environment devoid of distractions. Our senses become deeply attuned to our body’s wisdom. Our minds become clearer and connected to our heart’s deepest knowing. Blue Osa is one of those unique, ecologically diverse places on this beautiful planet that inspires profound personal connection to self. When we return to our lives we are more fully alive, energized and yet deeply calm.
Kripalu Yoga is a gentle form of hatha yoga that fosters non-judgmental, compassionate self-acceptance through the practice of postures, mindful breathing and meditation. Co-ordinating breath and movement while being finely attuned to the wisdom of your body defines the art and science of Kripalu yoga.

The Pathways Institute Reclaiming the Shadow Conference is a profoundly transformational workshop designed to accelerate deep healing and spiritual and personal integration.  During the conference you have the opportunity to reclaim parts of yourself that are unknown, untapped, lost or underutilized.  As the conference unfolds you will experience a renewal of love, courage, freedom, energy and a path to a more authentic and fulfilling life.

 

In this journey we deepen the meditative practices begun at the Heart Conference along with exploring new areas such as sexuality, power & vulnerability, construction and destruction and collective energetics.  We shine a light on childhood issues, healing old emotional wounds.  You will emerge able to be fully present in life with increased ability to live fully and consciously.

 

Shadow 2015 takes place in a breathtaking and inspiring setting on the beach on the Osa Peninsula rain forest of Costa Rica.  Along with our usual curriculum of meditation, movement, ritual, and group work, you will have plenty of personal time to swim, walk, connect with nature, meet new friends, draw, sculpt, paint, dance – or simply rest and renew.  Through this retreat, one’s internal and external lives come together to create a new and profound sense of wholeness.

 

Pricing:

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.

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.
