Relax, Restore, and Rejuvenate ~~A retreat for those who serve

Playa Hermosa at sunrise

Teachers, caretakers, medical practitioners, body-workers–parents and friends–how do we take care of this one wild and precious life while in service to others? While caring and sharing is as much a gift to the giver as to the receiver, going on retreat can be a gift to the part of ourselves in need of some replenishment. This Pranawork retreat theme is about taking the time and using the tools (some familiar, some new) to rest and reflect, repair and renew.

Join Pranawork at Vida Asana Eco-Retreat and Yoga Center, a very special place we love so much that we’re returning to it for our fourth year in a row. This unique community is tucked away in the rainforest a kilometer from the Puntanera region’s Playa Hermosa Beach–a quiet surfing community located 90 minutes south of the San Jose (SJO) airport. With Vida Asana as your home away from home, you can enjoy a wide range of activities like hiking, surfing, paddle-boarding, and jungle excursions IF you choose to venture off from the site’s lush gardens and relaxing swimming pool.

Our mornings begin with yoga and meditation. Following breakfast, the day is yours to explore or relax.  We can help arrange excursions, or make suggestions for restorative self-care treatments.  After sunset at the beach and a delicious, lovingly prepared dinner, we come back together for our evening satsangs of music, vibrational sound bathes, mantra, poetry, and reflection. By sharing this time together, we deepen our sense of community (sangha), deepen the connection with ourselves, and realize a renewal only a retreat can offer.

This week is for you, so join in as much as you want, or as little.  Carrie will be there to facilitate a meaningful and authentic experience filled with friendship, laughter, and an opportunity to deepen our practice.

This retreat is appropriate for yogis of all levels, abilities and experience.
