"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. "

200-hour Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training with Banyan Gallagher,
with La Escuela Del Sol
"If you want to learn something, read about it. If you want to understand something, write about it. If you want to master something, teach it."
– Yogi Bhajan
By the end of this program, each participant will be certified and inspired to teach yoga as recognized by Yoga Alliance. The focus of our work together will be the art of teaching, or the manner in which we share what we learn about ourselves with others. We will emphasize learning to safely lead a successful, intelligent, and inspiring vinyasa class. To get there, we will immerse ourselves in a month of powerful practice and study, deepening our connection to yoga and transforming our lives. We'll build a strong foundation in breathwork, energy locks, mantra, and yoga philosophy to support us on this journey.
One year of previous yoga experience is preferred.

Vinyasa Flow & Hang Music
at Loma Sibo with Dagmar Spremberg & Gaudan
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.

Retreat Fran Medina & Cynthia Scher at Los Mangos
Crossing the Threshold: An Intimate Journey into Power, Wisdom, and Transformation
Are you a woman over 45? Are you ready to finally embrace the life you were meant to live?
Join your facilitators, Fran Medina and Cynthia Scher, on this week-long retreat of self-discovery and self-empowerment for women in the second half of life.
In this retreat, you will learn to:
Envision your empowered life
Overcome the blocks that keep you from fulfilling your dreams
Recognize the tremendous amount of wisdom that you have accumulated over the years
In many indigenous cultures, women have been revered for their creativity and wisdom as they age. But in Western society, where youth is worshipped over wisdom, we have forgotten this. We ourselves must first honor and embrace this stage in our lives so that we may move into what we want to create at this glorious time of our lives.
Some of the techniques we will use include:
Experiential exercises and techniques
Encounters with local Elders
An opportunity to share our wisdom and gifts with the local community
The retreat also includes optional daily yoga classes, spa/healing modalities, private sessions, and tours.
You’ll go home ready to live a truly authentic life—the life you were meant to have. If not now, when?
The cost for this retreat, including accommodations, two meals a day, yoga, a spa treatment, and a group tour is only $1499 FOR A LIMITED TIME! Visit www.CrossingTheThreshold.biz for more information.

She also is certified in IGM Acupressure, Stress Resiliency coaching, and Smoking Cessation counseling; has training in Clinical Aromatherapy and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT); and has extensive experience teaching as a Reiki Master.

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.
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.
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.
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 Danielle Yarusso
at Los Mangos
Simplify Costa Rica Yoga Retreat
with Shannon Cluff and Lisa Sanson
What are you doing Spring Break 2015? Join me for the trip of your lifetime!
I will be leading a 7 day retreat in the beautiful beach town of Montezuma, Costa Rica. Montezuma is a laid back village with breathtaking white sand beaches and blue-green waters set against a thick jungle backdrop. Stay right on the water and enjoy the view and sound of the beautiful pacific ocean as you practice yoga daily in an outdoor pavillion. Go surfing, zip lining, stand up paddle boarding, snorkeling, jump off a 35 foot high waterfall and tour the remote island of Cabuya to meet with locals to make coconut oil. Spend your days practicing yoga, exploring Montezuma or relaxing and your nights partying in the center of Montezuma, which is just a five minute walk along the beach from the hotel. End the week with a New Moon Party on the beach (it's a new moon people!) to celebrate new beginnings and your transformative experience in Costa Rica!
To provide a fun and transformative experience through travel and yoga.
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. www.SacredHealingArts.net
