The word yoga means "union" in Sanskrit, the language of ancient India where yoga originated. You can think of the union occurring between the mind, body, and spirit. What is commonly referred to as "yoga" can be more accurately described by the Sanskrit word "asana", which refers to the practice of physical postures or poses. "Asana" is only one of the eight "limbs" of yoga, the majority of which are more concerned with mental and spiritual well-being than physical activity.

Many people think that yoga is just stretching but yoga is really about creating balance in the body through developing both strength and flexibility. This is done through the performance of poses or postures, each of which has specific physical benefits, which can be done quickly in succession, creating heat in the body through movement (vinyasa-style yoga), or more slowly to increase stamina, and perfect the alignment of the pose. The approach to poses varies depending on the tradition in which the teacher has trained.

The amazing thing about yoga is that your practice is always evolving and changing, so it never gets boring. Anyone can start a yoga practice, even if you do not feel like you are very flexible or very strong. Another great thing is thinking about "your practice" that it encourages the noncompetitive spirit of yoga. One of the most difficult, but ultimately most liberating things about yoga is letting go of the ego and accepting that no one is better than anyone else. Everyone is just doing their best on any given day.

Excursions to Tortuga island including snorkeling and to the Costa Rican jungle that can give you the best interesting experience during your vacation, are included in the price.
