Embodiment Yoga Retreat with Ahmed Soliman

Explore yourself, learn your capacities, discover your capabilities.

Let’s escape the winter to a jungle beach paradise, with an experienced registered yoga teacher (ERYT) and wildlife biologist as your guide. This is a chance to dive deep and understand your body, your heart, exploring beyond the physical heart, your soul, and yourself. A chance to understand how, through the practice of yoga, you can master yourself.

This week-long immersion is for yogis at every level — the experienced yogi looking to deepen the practice; the beginner yogi looking for a teacher to breakdown myths and make the practice accessible; and the newly-trained teacher seeking a well of understanding to offer students.

Ahmed, with his 2nd consecutive year returning to Blue Osa, combining his yoga teaching experience with his wildlife biology background, will bring Blue Osa’s natural wonder into vivid relevance for the yoga practice. At its core, yoga is about balance. Through the study of fragile ecosystems, He learned quickly that balance is essential for any community — human or wild. At beautiful Blue Osa, set within the incomparable natural rainforest, join him on an adventure through the balance of our bodies, our minds, and our natural world, as we explore the thread that connects it all.

About Your Yoga Instructor:

Ahmed Soliman

As a yoga teacher, I am deeply influenced by the personal journey that brought me to yoga practice.

I began my professional life as a wildlife biologist and environmental scientist. Serving the natural environment and helping to recover endangered species was my way of giving to a greater good. This is a concept that I carry daily into my yogic lifestyle, both in teaching and in practice, seeking to serve my communities in a way that supports strength, healing, and sustainability. I also bring my science background to my students through yoga retreats in locations that provide the incomparable forces of nature as a backdrop to our yoga journeys. My retreats incorporate hikes through nature, identifications of rare species, and meditations on the privileges and responsibilities of living in a world that will go on for millennia past our natural lives.

I have additional specialized training in anatomy, meditation, and Yoga Nidra.

“Ahmed’s retreats create magic! He inspires through gentle example and his learned expertise deepens the experience. HIs retreats blend a gorgeous location and delicious healthy food with yoga and meditation specially tailored for the group. But best, he creates an environment that is inspiring for yogis of all levels – fun but focused, challenging but safe, exploratory but nurturing. The vibe draws out the unique personalities of the participants while unifying and bonding the group. I came away a better yogi, more conscious and committed, but also with new friends that I will keep for life”

“After working with Ahmed for over a year, I cannot say enough about what learning with him has done for my practice. He has the wisdom of an old man and the physical energy of a young man. As a teacher, his eagle eyes keep me honest but his gentle nature makes me trust him to push me. I trust him with my practice in a way that I’ve never trusted a teacher and that trust has paid great dividends.”

“I had a wonderful time on a Yoga retreat last winter (2018) with Ahmed. Truly it was a magical experience: great classes, 2 a day looking over the Pacific Ocean, guided meditations filled with calming-wisdom, delicious food, excellent camaraderie. All in all nourishment for mind, body and soul”
