Awaken Your Spirit Yoga Retreat
February 15-22, 2020
with Marci Jory 500-ERYT
Retreat offers us a chance to shed routines, to enjoy the healing power of nature, to experience belonging in a safe community, to dive into supported self-reflection and to immerse ourselves in yogic teachings and practices.
Marci is thrilled to be leading this intimate, soul-filling yoga retreat. Get ready to be blissed out and connect to your spirit and community with an opportunity to fully focus on YOU! You will be surrounded by new (and maybe old) friends and nurtured by healthy food and fresh air.
On the edge of the jungle and near gorgeous beaches, you will find yourself returning to a deep sense of peace within. The sounds of Costa Rican wild life will be the soundtrack to your practice and meditation. During this retreat we will explore movement and meditation that balance and harmonize the chakras and energy body. Each day's practice, discussion, and optional writing prompts will be focused on learning about, and bringing into balance, a different chakra.
Throughout the day, you will have opportunities to relax and restore or awaken your adventurous side with surfing, ziplining, or horseback riding. Each evening you will be invited to wind down with a gentle Yin or Restorative practice complete with Reiki (energy healing) and essential oil aromatherapy. By the end of our time together you will feel more balanced, focused, relaxed, and clear. What a perfect trip to help offset the long days of winter.
Welcome to the Nicoya Peninsula, a very special place indeed! It is no wonder more and more people are gravitating to this area, as it has been designated as one of the world's five Blue Zones - "hot-spots having common healthy traits and life practices that result in higher-than-normal longevity" - a mecca for the holistic and healing arts practice.
AHKí is a short 3 kilometers from Garza, a quaint fishing village with a lovely beach where you'll find more ticos (locals) than tourists. Another 8 kilometers north finds you in Nosara with Playa Guiones and Playa Pelada. Here you can experience wonderful restaurants, shopping, various excursions and some of the finest surfing in the country!
