Paradise in Paradise II – Costa Rica July 2014
Hello! I want to keep this short and sweet and invite to feast your eyes and indulge your imagination as I attempt to describe a week long Yoga retreat in Osa peninsula, Costa Rica, with 13 amazing participants and one thrilled instructor (me!). Here is how I can summarize:
1. It was an amazing experience, full of incredible food, incredible sights and sounds coupled with the fresh air of nature, in an incredible place that is best described through visual images (see below).
2. Everyone had a blast. There was laughter almost non-stop, there was intense yoga practice, there were friendships formed and relationships strengthened.
3. It was a game changer, for everyone. Those new to yoga are no longer new, and those more seasoned broke through long held barriers of doubt, fear and hesitation. Poses were de-mystified and breath was deepened. It was a joy to witness and a pleasure to facilitate such transformation. Read below:
