Costa Rica Renewal Retreat: Yoga, Meditation and Feldenkrais

Learn new ways of moving and being.

As we age, we get stuck in old patterns and habits of movement and thought, yet there is great potential for renewal through these combined practices. Feldenkrais Method gently and systematically reorganizes the nervous system and body for ease of movement.

Meditation breaks old patterns of thought and emotion creating new neural pathways and building grey matter. Yoga soothes the nervous system and gives space for integration and healing. A week-long immersion in a quiet, beautiful and serene location allows a deeper integration and lasting change.

You will get to explore the combined practices of Feldenkrais, Yoga and Meditation and experience neuroplasticity as you learn new ways of moving and being in the world.

TENTATIVE DAILY SCHEDULE

Everything is optional. Take the time to rest or go an adventure!

Each day will begin with sunrise meditation and practice of silent reflection. Students are invited to journal or take a morning walk on the beach.

Following a light breakfast, we will gather for our morning practice: either a Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement session with Debra or an all levels alignment-based yoga practice with Joanna. After our morning practice, we’ll break until lunch. A walk or further journaling and reflection is welcome.

After lunch, we’ll gather for lectures and discussion about neuroplasticity, meditation and more.

Prior to dinner, we’ll again gather for either a Feldenkrais Session or a Restorative/Gentle Yoga Session.

We’ll close our evenings with meditation.

Both Debra and Joanna are available for one-on-one private sessions during break time.
