Learning to Let Go Yoga & Wellness Retreat in Costa Rica

Dates: May 21-28, 2016

Location: Pura Vida Spa in Costa Rica (http://www.rrresorts.com/pura_vida_spa/)

The whole process of yoga is a learning to let go. Letting go of what? Of all that we have learned that has covered over our inner light and blocked our awareness of love’s ever-presence. During this magical week together we will be working on releasing those stagnant places within ourselves to enjoy a more dynamic free flow of energy. We will do that by various health & wellness modalities, including twice daily yoga sessions, massage and bodywork, spa treatments, spiritual wisdom teachings, breathwork, sacred song, the yoga swing, conscious films, delicious food, and enlivening excursions. And there will be plenty of free time, too, to just be & enjoy the beauty & wonder of it all in a land called Pura Vida.

Allowah has been on the yoga and spiritual path for nearly 30 years and has much to share from his engagement with various spiritual traditions, including Kabbalah, Yoga, Plant Spirit Medicine, and A Course in Miracles. For more about him, please visit his website: http://www.allowah.org.

Allowah will be joined by the very gifted Ali Gardella as co-teacher and faciltator, who will also be offering massage and Reiki. Dr. Gerry Segal will also be offering massage and bodywork.

Cost of Retreat: $1700 and up

The Five Tibetans: A Simple, Everyday Practice for Vibrant Health

This video is intended for those who might want a nice, simple workout to do any time of the day and anywhere. These five exercises are said to be ancient ones from Tibet (hence the name “The Five Tibetans” or “Five Tibetan Rites”) and are said to promote robust health and longevity. Whether one believes this or not, I find this to be a useful routine, both as a practitioner of yoga for the past almost 20 years, and also useful as a yoga teacher trainer. Many students like to have a short, structured practice that they can do anytime, anywhere, and this definitely fits the bill. The video itself will explain more how to do them, but do keep in mind that these should be done slowly, coordinating your breath with the movements.

We will be posting more educational “how to” yoga videos like this in the coming months. If you are interested in learning more yoga with us, please feel free to subscribe to this blog, and you might also want to join us for one of our upcoming yoga teacher trainings at beautiful retreat spots around the world.
