  • Sheila McVay

    Johns Creek Yoga is the fulfilment of a long-held dream for Sheila. She began practicing yoga in 2000 with the idea that the postures would help stretch the muscles that were contracting as she trained for a half-marathon. What she discovered is that yoga stretched her mind and soul as much as it did her muscles. Her greatest pleasure is the opportunity to share the gift of yoga, and in that spirit, she resolved to bring a studio to her community in Johns Creek. In addition to daily classes at the studio, she facilitates Yoga teacher training and offers retreats and workshops.

Step into the tranquil oasis that is Blue Osa. Set on a remote beachfront location, this eco-resort houses guests in three main buildings along with on-site facilities including an open-air yoga studio on the second floor of the yoga building that overlooks the private beach. The lap pool is with a solar-powered filtration system. An eco-friendly copper-silver ionizing system is used so that algae and other bacteria cannot live in the water. A lounge area near the staff office features complimentary wireless internet access.

Blue Osa is located about eight miles south of Puerto Jimenez on the Osa Peninsula of Costa Rica which National Geographic Magazine labeled “the most biologically intense place on Earth.” The resort is nearest to the border of the world-renowned Corcovado National Park and on the warm shores of the Golfo Dulce. While visiting this tropical eco-resort you are likely to spot some of Costa Rica’s shyest and most endangered rainforest inhabitants, including the red-backed squirrel monkey, scarlet macaws, harpy eagles, and maybe even a jaguar.
