"Just over ten years ago, Dagmar came to my class at the newly-opened Virayoga and asked me if I'd ever be interested in teaching a yoga retreat. I'd never done so, it hadn't even crossed my mind. She told me she'd be opening a yoga studio down there and I'd be the first to lead a retreat group. I signed on for the adventure, and was forever grateful for that experience and the many that followed thereafter at Dagmar's haven. Ten years later, amidst hundreds of retreats annually in Costa Rica, Montezuma Yoga is one paradise that stands out among the rest. Dagmar and her team have a level of professionalism, hospitality and care that is unrivaled. The food on her retreats is always of a superb quality, nourishing and satisfying even to the most discriminating of clients, and of course the yoga pavilion boasts one of the most idyllic views on Earth. I'm proud to have been the first teacher at Montezuma Yoga, and I cannot wait to return. "
Join Philly Power Yoga March 2nd – March 9th as we retreat to Costa Rica for a week filled with yoga, surfing and connecting to whatever feeds us in the moment. We will begin and end each day with our signature style of yoga, as taught by Steve Gold and Sara Ronsvalle. Fresh, organic meals prepared daily by local restaurants will nourish you from the inside – out. And the undeniable energy of the Costa Rican “pura vida” spirit will no doubt ignite your own spirit.
“You have no idea how stressful your life is until you go on a retreat. When you stop; when everything gets still, it has an amazing impact on your yoga practice. You find yourself doing things on your mat you never thought possible.” – Steve Gold
If you’ve been curious about a yoga retreat, or already know the profound effects one can have on your practice, this is the time to join us. Mark your calendars and stay tuned in the coming weeks for full details.
Steve Gold Years ago in what now seems to be another life, Steve Gold, owner of Philly Power Yoga, worked behind a desk as a successful sales and marketing executive. Although success and wealth came quickly for Gold, his career path proved to be unfulfilling. Gold realized the most important wealth is health, and spent the next 17 years studying and practicing spiritual principles and lifestyle, including eight years with Baron Baptiste. Gold’s primary goal when teaching to both his students and instructors is to be honest, real and accessible. He teaches that beginning with unhealthy baggage and habits are ok. Simply be still in the moment no matter how painful, and begin to reconnect with the real you.
Sara Ronsvalle For Sara, yoga is about constantly moving toward a greater connection with herself. It’s a tool that inspires and reminds her that the best of version of her self already lies within. Through both stillness and movement we practice listening to ourselves in the present moment. Whatever we hear is information we can use to make more authentic choices about how we want to live our lives. It is from this place, as a guide, Sara encourages others to trust the wisdom that resides within.
Sara is certified through the Nosara Yoga Institute in Nosara, Costa Rica and has received over 400 hours of training in yoga for both adults and children.
Pricing starts at $920 - $1,095 based on accommodations.

An Immersion Into Nature
Vinyasa Flow & Hang Music retreat
with Dagmar & Gaudan
at The Sanctuary At Two Rivers, Cabuya
We are very excited to go back to this special retreat place!
Jungle treehouse accomodation, completely off the grid,
3 delicious vegetarian meals per day, you will be surrounded by waterfalls and pristine rivers....the perfect place to immerse yourself into the beauty of Nature, Music & Yoga....
Mornings will be a dynamic vinyasa with Dagmar, evenings a slow flow vinyasa accompanied by Daniel's magical Hang music.
One of the most precious gifts you can give yourself is the gift of stillness. Moments of simply breathing, whether alone or together, to just sit quiet and watch a beautiful sunset over the ocean, take in the fragrance of a tropical ylang ylang flower or listen to the sounds of the monkeys and birds…how often do you make time for stillness?
The aim of our yoga retreat is not only to strengthen you physically, but also to bring you closer to your self, to a place where you are comfortable with stillness and refine your ability to listen more. You will deepen your practice this week as you learn to surrender more into your breathing. We will create more space in your body, leaving you feeling more spacious in your mind. You will explore new ways of nourishment on and off the mat.
Music is magic. It beautifully enhances our emotions and brings balance and harmony to our bodies, it also helps us to surrender and soften into the flow of life. The Hang is a very magical instrument, it is handmade in Switzerland and often used for sound healing. In this magical retreat we will enhance your practice with the melodies of the Hang to give you a deeper experience of your self. Mornings will be a more dynamic vinyasa and sunset sessions slow flow with Hang music.
Rates are starting at $895 for the week including all meals, accomodation and yoga. For further info please refer to the website:
