Winter is Coming – Do you remember how much it snowed last winter? We do too! That is why we have created a relaxing wintertime escape to Costa Rica. There is no better time to escape the grasp of a Midwest winter…and why not head off to a tropical beach destination with sand, yoga and friends?
Join your Power Life family for a 7-day retreat on Costa Rica’s Nicoya Peninsula, an area rich in biodiversity with its rainforests, mangroves, lagoons and pristine beaches. You’ll enjoy 6 nights in Santa Teresa, where the sound of the ocean waves breaking on the shore is the first thing you hear after a peaceful night’s sleep. Look out your window and enjoy your view of lush gardens and pools. The on-site restaurant will serve you three delicious meals daily with a strong emphasis on locally sourced and organic ingredients.
All-Level Power Yoga classes will be offered daily along with a mix of Restorative/Yin and Meditation classes sprinkled in. Increase your confidence and practice your power in the Arm Balance Workshop. Attendees will also have the option of spending an afternoon “in service” by giving back at a local school. There are numerous excursions and activities that can be added onto your adventure for an additional cost (think Zipline Jungle Tour, Fishing, Surf lessons, Horseback Riding, ATV tours, Stand Up Paddle Boarding).
- 6 nights accommodations
- 3 meals per day starting with dinner on the first night and ending with breakfast on the last day
- In-country flight to Tambor and Shuttle to/from retreat center
- Daily yoga practices
- Personal retreat time (having time to nap, explore, walk, read, and just be)

Kirk was working 80 hour weeks and wearing his shoulders as earrings when he found yoga in 2005. Always the competitive athlete, he loved the physicality of yoga. When the spiritual and philosophical side of yoga were exposed to him, he was hooked. Yoga provided him what his other activities couldn’t, the ability to foster the benefits of practice both on and off of the mat. Yoga was something that he could bring into all aspects of his life.
Kirk knows that yoga can be intimidating, so he crafts a class that is playful and inviting, while still being challenging and safe. His creatively planned classes build strength and flexibility in your body and mind while establishing clarity, giving you more confidence to overcome obstacles in your life, and keeping you injury free. His classes are themed with a message that is relatable and will inspire you to take it with you off your mat. Kirk helps you to connect with your higher Self as you peel away the layers and bring out the best in yourself.
Kirk’s playful nature is his remedy for life. He leads a light-hearted class that is fun because too often in life we sweat the small things that don’t really matter and lose focus on our true path. He will be gentle with you when you’re low, honest with you when you’re lost and will celebrate with you always.
After stepping on his mat in ’15, Stefan noticed how the discipline and mindfulness transferred to every aspect of his life. He truly feels his practice allows people to encounter a better version of him, which they deserve. This positive ripple effect yoga had on his life left him with the desire to share this practice with others. Stefan completed his 200-hr Power Yoga TT at Power Life with Christen Bakken. He views being an instructor as a vehicle to leave his mark and make a difference through positive change. Students will be challenged to turn their thinking into action and practice discipline before expression. In his class, Stefan aims to create a challenging and motivating environment to empower students to design their lives with passion and constant intent. Expect to experience a physical class filled with difficult transitions, strong beats and the opportunity to take your practice to the next level- physically and mentally. He’s an arm balance kind of guy.
When he’s not on his mat, Stefan can be found staying active whether it’s on the tennis court, at the gym, or outdoors. He’s passionate about his involvement in the Power Life, Lululemon, and Big Brothers Big Sisters communities.
