This retreat is designed to take the adventurous yogi to a deeper level of self-awareness and is perfect for sanctuarystudiopeepsthose who want to unblock all mental & physical barriers to live the best life ever! Throughout this week, we will embark on a transformative process of mind and body detoxification using a combination of dynamic poses, meditation, journaling and community for an experience of deep connection and awakening. Join us at Costa Rica’s premier 100% Off-The-Grid, Solar Powered, Gourmet Vegetarian Retreat Center where you will live and learn the lessons of one of the Earth’s only five “Blue Zones: places in the world where higher percentages of people enjoy remarkably long, full lives” according to author Dan Buettner.

Yoga in paradise means we will awaken each morning and end each day with a yoga practice designed to bring awareness and balance. Come unplug in a modern Zen tree house where you have time to relax, read, journal, set mindful goals, rest and renew your entire sense of well-being in between morning yoga, pool yoga, restorative yoga and incredible vegetarian meals. In the afternoon, wander through the Jurassic jungle enjoying adjacent secluded waterfalls or walk 1000 yards to a glorious surf and swimming beach. In many ways, attending a yoga retreat is always a type of overall collaborative experience because it provides you an opportunity to share, have fun and connect with other like-minded people.

Furthermore, as your guides and life coaches with a combined twelve years experience organizing group travel adventures, we are 100% committed to helping you reach your full potential in a friendly, unpretentious, and supportive environment.

Growing Through Self-Study Benefit of Yoga Teacher Training

“Growing is the most important and essential endeavor that a human being can undertake. You can make money, you can be promoted or demoted in the world. Never, at any stage, is there certainty about what will happen to you in this life. However, there is one thing nobody can ever take away from you-the growth you attain through your own search for Self-knowledge. Furthermore, this growth and understanding become the foundation that sustains you through any and all worldly difficulties, and that allows you-whatever the form of your physical experience- to find in life a continuously unbroken flow of total well-being.” — Swami Chetanananda

My Alchemy of Yoga RYT200 Teacher Training (aka Self-Study Program) was created from this intention that our growth and personal transformation comes as a result of knowing ourselves better. I want to give you the support, space, and time to get a Master’s degree in YOU. There is no better subject to be expert in that yourself.

Join me in Costa Rica this July 31-August 18, 2013 for this incredible destination RYT200 Yoga Teacher Training Program hosted by The Sanctuary at Two Rivers!
