Alchemy of yoga and how to live an inspired life

Yoga is about wholeness, health, and vital living. It is about a life inspired in body, mind, and spirit. Through movement, meditation, discussion, and journaling, you will explore the vast resources related to how to live an inspired life by focusing on the last three niyamas or personal practices that comprise the alchemy of yoga. These are necessary for bringing about real, lasting change and cultivating inner happiness and spiritual bliss.

Experience the alchemy of the five elements, the four directions, and the chakra system as an inner and outer map of transformation. These are archetypal and energetic maps that are as metaphorical as they are very real and embodied. Everything you see, taste, touch, feel, and do can be interpreted through the gateway of the elements, directions, and chakras.

You will learn how to tap into these sacred relationships and align yourself with their alchemy in order to gain insight into healing your psyche, emotions, and well-being.

When you join together in a kula (“community of the heart”), you are all the alchemist in your laboratory mixing the ingredients. You wake up to the power you have to go into the laboratory of your life experience and mix the potions you want to create your best life going forward!

How does the alchemy of yoga work?

Something magical and mystical happens when a group of high-intentioned individuals make the decision to gather together for two-hundred hours with the purpose of uplifting their lives and expanding consciousness into radical authenticity.

This program will transform you on three levels: physical alchemy, spiritual alchemy, and mental alchemy. The ancient alchemists, like their yogi counterparts, saw all of creation as composed of earth, air, fire, water, and space. Through their meditations and explorations of these five elements, they created healing and transformative potions and unlocked many of the mysteries of the universe and therein contributed to the evolution of humankind.

As an alchemist yogi, your laboratory is your mat and the ingredients are your body, poses, breath, thoughts, and the mixing it all together changes your life. You are transformed into a peace leader, leading a happiness revolution and changing the world!

Upon completion, you will be prepared to design and confidently lead intelligent alignment driven Vinyasa, Hatha, and Restorative classes, all with your own signature style. You will graduate as a happiness ambassador, ready to authentically and effectively inspire others!

Physical alchemy (tapas)

It ignites the changes you want to make in your life. It is about the getting fired up and passionate. Literally, it means heating the body through moving and breathing in the Vinyasa.

Mental alchemy (svadhaya)

While you are following the discipline of tapas and engaging in the physical practice to help move your stuck energy, you are watching yourself. In yoga, you study the self to learn about the self.

Here, the mental alchemy is through self-observation. You witness what is going on in your thoughts, what are you thinking. You tune in to your intuition to enhance clarity and harmony between what you think, say, and do. You remember to remember who you really are.

Through this, your ego softens from being I centered to seeing your interconnectedness to all things, people, nature, and energies. You humbly realize your nature of union in this interweb.

Spiritual alchemy (ishvara pranidhana)

As you are doing and watching, you let go of the ego of judgment. You will move beyond wanting life to be different and begin to feel the surrender that allows what is being offered to mix together. You practice ishvara pranidhana as you trust the universal intelligence that hugs you from all directions to know what it is doing.

Once you find this trust, you begin to believe that beauty and goodness are within you, flowing non-stop. You will understand that there is no reason to stop this flow for its natural current is to align with the current of grace that is everywhere outside you. Beauty becomes your way of life. Happiness becomes your natural alchemy once again.

Waterfall hike

This tour begins with a 45-minute hike that involves crossing a creek a half dozen times, traversing a cattle farm, and weaving through a primary canopy of tropical dry forest. Stop along the way to discover the sights, sound and smell of everything around you before discovering a series of brilliant swimming holes and small waterfalls, each cascading from one to another.

You will come to an intersection with a four-way red flashing light and there will be signs there indicate a right turn into the town of Nicoya.

You will pass through different villages, until you come to a T-intersection, turn right here in the direction to Playa Garza where you’ll soon meet the ocean on your left. Continue straight through the village and leave Garza behind in the direction of Playa Guiones and Nosara.

After approximately 300 meters, you’ll see on your left a gate and the Blue Spirit Costa Rica sign (in blue and orange letters). Make a turn to the left and follow the little winding road all the way to the parking lot and the main building.

Driving directions from Juan Santamaria Airport (SJO)

Leave Juan Santamaria Airport (SJO) and follow the signs towards San Jose Escazu. Stay on this road for about 10 to 15 minutes depending on the traffic. Turn right at the intersection and you will see a McDonald’s on the far left-hand corner. This is Autopista del Sol or Highway 27.

Follow the signs to Caldera and Puntarenas (63.3 kilometers). You will pass the Port of Caldera and once you get to Puntarenas Route 27, turn into Highway 1.

Leave Puerto Caldera and travel northeast toward Liberia and Limonal (84 kilometers). After 28 kilometers, you will pass the little town of Esparza. Keep on going straight for six kilometers, passing the first turn off to Puntarenas, the turn off to Puerto Caldera, and later the second turn off to Puntarenas. Keep going straight for approximately 50 kilometers until you reach the center of Limonal.

Leave Limonal to the west and travel toward the Puente de La Amistad (29 kilometers) and Nicoya (63.5 kilometers). Pass over the Puente de la Amistad (it’s a bridge) and continue for another 21 kilometres until you come to a T-junction. Turn right at the “T” onto the road 21. Follow this road for 13 kilometers and turn left toward the town of Nicoya. Enter Nicoya and drive straight through the town always staying on the main road, no turns. Drive slowly, as there are a lot of pedestrians in this bustling town.

As you leave Nicoya on the other side, continue south on the paved road in the direction of Samara. There will be some twists and turns as you pass through different villages, but you stay always on the paved main road.

After approximately 30 kilometers you will see a large gas station on your left. There is also a hardware store and a little Soda Cafe for snacks and drinks. Stop here and get gas if needed. It’s the last chance on the way to Nosara.

Shortly after the gas station, the paved road makes a sharp curve to the left. At the apex of that curve, you will notice a small dirt road turning off to the right downhill. Take this dirt road. It’s the road to Garza, Guiones Beach, and Nosara. It is marked with several signs.
