With its vibrant rainforests, energizing volcanoes and tropical beaches Costa Rica embodies the ideal setting for practicing yoga.
Being surrounded by the mystical elements of Mother Nature it is only a natural outcome that the mind calms, the body expands and the heart opens. On our retreats we align to the philosophy of keeping it simple, to cultivate a carefreeness and to be open to the path in Self discovery.
The aim of the yoga component is to allow those who enjoy a regular yoga practice to maintain their practice while on vacation. For those who want to delve further it offers the opportunity to reach a greater depth in physical and spiritual awareness and learn how to implement the practice as a useful tool for daily living.
The type of yoga offered on Vajra Sol retreats is Vinyasa Flow with influences from each teacher's background. Vinyasa Flow is generally a stronger practice, however, it allows for creativity and each class is different and caters to the group's daily energy level and overall experience. It synchronizes the asanas, or poses, with the breath creating a rhythmic flow. It is about the integration of mind and body with a physical focus is on improved flexibility, balance and strength to build and maintain a healthy body.
The yoga sessions are designed for mixed levels with posture modifications always offered for those with less experience and for those more advanced. Practicing yoga surrounded by Costa Rica's magical pura vida energy leaves one blissfully renewed and rejuvenated.
