yoga retreat costa rica

Pamela invites you to join her for a yogic exploration on the breathtakingly beautiful Costa Rican coast. Become more in tune with the Pure Life Costa Rica offers as well as through the ancient art, science, and philosophy of yoga. 

Explore the pure teachings of yoga and be open to receive fully with a pure heart and mind the joys yoga can bring – physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually during this amazing week. 

Through the progression of the week, you will not only gain more strength and flexibility in the physical body but let go of stress, tension, and negative thought patterns that you no longer need to carry. 

Exploring and moving from the external to the internal landscape bring yoga to life – pure life.

“Yoga does not just change the way we see things, it transforms the person who sees.” B.K.S. Iyengar

The Iyengar approach to yoga is firmly based on the traditional eight limbs of yoga expounded by Patanjali in his classic treatise, The Yoga Sutras, written over 2,500 years ago. It is a disciplined and deeply researched system developed over 75 years by Yogacharya BKS Iyengar who practiced daily for many hours at a time during his 96 years – exploring, studying, writing, and teaching about yoga.

What is unique about Iyengar Yoga is that it is characterized in the practice of asana (poses) and pranayama (breathwork) with the innovative approach emphasizing precision and alignment, planned sequencing, timing, and the use of props. This approach has allowed people of varying ages, levels of health, and fitness to enjoy the benefits which a sustained practice can bring – the ability to face the physical, mental and emotional challenges of contemporary life with strength, vitality, mobility, thoughtfulness, and equanimity.

The term “Iyengar Yoga” was coined by students of Mr. Iyengar to distinguish Guruji’s approach from other styles of yoga.

What to expect from this method of yoga?

  • Qualified and rigorously trained instructors committed to excellence in teaching.yoga retreat costa rica
  • A safe and systematic progression of yoga postures to develop each student’s ability and skill, both within each class and from class to class.
  • Sequencing that develops strength, flexibility, stamina, concentration, and body alignment.
  • Individual correction and knowledge of how to adjust postures for common physical problems.
  • Precise use of language.
  • Demonstration and teaching of specific points to develop understanding and intelligent action.
  • Integration of the yoga philosophy with the practice of asana.
  • Incorporation and relevance of practice into daily life.
  • Ways to use yoga to ease various ailments and stress.
  • Use of props, such as blankets, blocks, and straps, to facilitate learning and adjust yoga postures to individual needs.

Pamela Nelson

Pamela is a certified level 3 Iyengar Yoga teacher. She lives in Christopher Lake, Saskatchewan on a small acreage with her family. This is her second international yoga retreat with True Nature Travels and she is so excited to be heading to a new part of Costa Rica!

She loves the life that has come from her practice and sees the changes in herself that have occurred because of her pure practice. She takes her yogic training and study seriously; however, she doesn’t take herself too seriously. Through her classes she brings a sense of friendliness, compassion, lightness, and fun, ensuring that no two classes are the same. 

Her classes include all levels from beginner to advanced, as well as Iyengar Flow, Gentle/Restorative, Backs and Joints, Senior/Modified, and Youth and Kids. She teaches in a way that is accessible to all and helps those explore all possibilities within themselves.  

Yoga means union. The union of the individual soul with the Universal Spirit is yoga. But this is too abstract a notion to be easily understood, so for our level of understanding I say that yoga is the union of body with the mind and of mind with the soul”. – BKS Iyengar, Tree of Yoga.
