Perfect Sunset School Yoga Retreat in Costa Rica Program

During this retreat, you will experience five two-hour yoga classes. Perfect Sunset School will challenge you physically and mostly mentally because there is an opportunity to increase self-awareness, knowledge, and joy. The yoga lessons will take place on the most beautiful place to practice yoga around located five minutes away from the school.

These shifts occurred on so many different levels appearing spontaneously and increasing your connection to life and spirit that they began to feel happier. You will also have the opportunity to experience a visit o the beautiful Montezuma waterfalls and plenty of time to relax or explore the location on your own.

Vinyasa yoga lessons

During this lessons, you will learn the four basic definitions of Vinyasa. The first is the linking of body movement with breath, the second is a specific sequence of breath-synchronized movements used to transition between sustained postures, and the third is setting an intention for one’s personal yoga practice and taking the necessary steps toward reaching that goal and the last is a type of yoga class.

Sridaiva yoga lessons

During this sessions, you will learn that the "bowspring" is a dynamically balanced posture and ideal spinal shape for all of your daily life activities. It considers enhancing your capacity in ordinary tasks like walking, sitting, housework, and even more specialized activities like yoga, jogging, or any athletics. The goal of the "bowspring" alignment is to achieve tensile strength and rooted lightness in any movement while using the least amount of physical energy.

This posture also offers a new view on body alignment that keeps you living more healthy at any age and cultivates graceful lightness and whole body strength.

Restorative yoga lessons

Restorative yoga is particularly effective for those who feel weak, fatigued, or beat up from surfing. This is a gentle practice accessible for everyone and also a great way to relax after an action-packed day in Costa Rica.
