Called by the energy of the Costa Rican mountains, ocean, spirits, and each other, they invite you to come to evolve on your spiritual and yogic path. They encourage you to begin the practice now, by reflecting on your intentions for yourself and what brought you on this journey.

Together, you will create a safe and sacred space within your group that will help to reveal the wisdom within and the nature of the self. This path will ask for self-reflection, growth, and discipline. Your journey will be greatly guided by what you chose to bring to the experience. Open yourself to what is there, leave all expectations behind and enter the clear, crisp perspective and sacred landscape of Costa Rica with an open heart.
