"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. "

Retreat Brian Williams at Los Mangos

Your Costa Rican yoga adventure with New York City yoga instructor Brian Williams will revolutionize the way you practice yoga, deepen your connection to your inner artist (yes, we all have an inner artist!) and leave you deeply relaxed, reinvigorated, and ready to take on new challenges with passion, energy, and presence.

Early morning meditation and journaling sessions will work to release and encourage your creative spirit, so that you can express yourself and pursue your dreams with renewed energy and vigor. Our daily early morning yoga sessions will invigorate, giving you strength and energy to take on the day’s adventures, and the late afternoon classes will focus more on deep stretch and relaxation, with a slower, meditative feel.
After breakfast, the day is yours, so seize it! Hang out at the beach, get a massage with the soothing sounds of the ocean in your ears, or take a surf lesson, zip-line tour through the canopies, hike to the nearby waterfalls, or just chill in your hammock with a great book. Also included in your trip is a fantastic snorkeling trip to Tortuga Island.

Brian Williams is a Core Strength Vinyasa teacher, trained by Sadie Nardini, founder of the style. He teaches Punk Rock Yoga and Core Strength Vinyasa classes in New York City for ten years, and is also a writer, Feng Shui practitioner, and Reiki Master. He considers yoga to be a great way to help his students live the most amazing version of their lives. His teachings encourage inner strength, and getting self-centered in the most positive sense. His retreats are more like vacations with great friends—filled with fun, laughter, and playful irreverence.

Sun, Sand, Surf...
and Philly Power Yoga
with Steve Gold & Sara Ronsvalle
Join Philly Power Yoga 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.

For more info or registration please contact Sara:

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.

Retreat Ken Nelson & Lesli Lang
at Loma Sibo

Celebrate the natural world with a seriously-fun eco-venture. Discover how yoga and qigong feel in a tropical wonderland with one-fifth of the world's bio-diversity. Enjoy beaches, birding, jungle walks, and eco-touring. Nurture yourself with like-hearted spirits.

Ken and Lesli offer gentle, easy-to-learn, evidence-based practices that restore wellbeing and wholeness. Yoga and qigong nurture transformation through intentional breathing, postures, guided imagery, and attention training. Qigong is graceful, low-impact movement coordinated with breathing. This soft, internal style of moving-with-less-effort promotes balance, strength and agility.  (Qigong may be done with athletic shoes or barefoot.)

Discover the wisdom of stillness with quiet, unhurried restorative and yin yoga. These simple, passive floor postures help to relieve chronic pain, awaken insight, and stimulate life-giving forces for health and healing. Yoga nidra (guided deep relaxation) calms the nervous system and releases habitual holding helping you to feel more grounded, trusting, intuitive, and creative. 

Relaxation happens naturally when you stop creating tension. Slow down. Care for your self. You’ll return vital, rested and renewed.
