Why this Retreat?

I want to share a little bit of my own healing journey with you through the art of yoga! Come along with me to a very special place called Nosara, Costa Rica. Amongst an intimate setting (10-12 participants) learn how to clear away the blocks in your body on a physical level to help you lead the life you were meant to live. Leave this retreat with a open heart filled with more wisdom and love, with a fuller and more nourished soul, with your physical body stronger and your energetic body ready to shed layers of what no longer serves you and holds you back.

Outline of the Week

To invigorate you upon rising, your morning yoga practice will be a 75 minute vinyasa class. Vinyasa yoga is a very subtle, beautiful, introspective practice, and exercise can be a side benefit as we move to sequences that will naturally create agni (heat) in the body and build strength. Our evening class will be restorative and will include meditation, yin postures and pranayama (breathwork). The theme of the retreat is A Seven Day Exploration of the Chakras therefore each day’s class will centre around the seven energy centres of the body. Our body is an energetic system through which the universal life force flows. Our seven chakras are a part of this energetic system – they connect us with the larger part of ourselves, the universe, and at the same time they hold the secrets to a healthy, prosperous and gratifying life. We will learn about these subtle energy centres from the root up to the crown and how these chakras affect us daily.

  1. Muladhara (Root Chakra) located at the base of your spine and is responsible for our basic survival skills; food, water shelter. {Think finances and resources}
  2. Svadhishthana (Sacral Chakra) located at the lower abdomen at the base of the coccyx and is responsible for pleasure and sexuality. {How comfortable are you with your sexuality and can you experience pleasure free of guilt and shame?}
  3. Manipura (Naval Chakra) located at your naval centre and is responsible for your personal power. {Do you have confidence and a strong sense of self? Are you overly indecisive and a bit insecure?}
  4. Anahata (Heart Chakra) located at the heart centre and is responsible for love for others and also towards ourselves. {This translates to ALL your relationships including the most important one, with yourself and letting down your defenses and your ability to be vulnerable}
  5. Vishuddha (Throat Chakra) located in the throat and is responsible for communication; the words we speak but also the words we hold back and wish we could express. {Can you speak your truth with ease or do you speak too much?}
  6. Anja (Third Eye Chakra) located between the eyebrows and is responsible for intuition, our deep inner knowing. {Do you trust your intuition or do you rely on your cervical brain to make all your decisions?}
  7. Sahasrara (Crown Chakra) located at the top of the head and is responsible for enlightenment and a sense of spiritual accomplishment. {Balance the other 6 Chakras and the seventh will open more naturally}
