One Truth, Many Paths

Yoga Retreats with Kevin Courtney | The Eightfold Path: YAMA in Nosara, Costa Rica, March 2018

YAMA is a one week immersion into the vast teachings and practices of the sankhya yoga tradition.

The aim of the retreat is to improve the quality of your life through the acquisition of self knowledge, increased vital energy. and connection to conscious community.   

YAMA is not a yoga vacation.  It’s an experience designed for students and teachers interested in an intensive study of asana, pranayama, meditation, philosophy, and self reflection.

YAMA offers a full stop.  It’s a break in the rhythm and patterns of your life and a chance to engage with yourself at the highest level.

 

Through practice and contemplation we’ll explore the following themes:

Ahimsa
kindness to self and others

Satya
Truthfulness

Asteya
Integrity

Bramacharya
Conservation of vital energy

Aparigraha
Letting Go

The retreat experience will be supported by:

Daily asana, meditation, and philosophy w/ Kevin Courtney

Two 5Rhythms movement sessions w/ Amber Ryan

A Seva Session (selfless service to give back to community)

Onsite Massage Therapist

Three locally sourced meals daily

Daily shuttles to the local surf break

Plenty of integration and down time.

Location

Set amidst the vibrancy of the Nosara jungle, our home for the week is the family run Costa Rica Yoga Spa.  The Yoga Spa sits on sacred land conduCive for deep self-study and communion with the natural elements of the GUANACASTE PENINSULA.

 

Presence. Purpose. Clarity. Intent. Will. Action. Union.

This is the art, science and philosophy of Yoga.

THE EIGHTFOLD PATH
THE BIGGER PICTURE

YAMA marks the beginning of an eight year cycle which will move through the complete architecture of Ashtanga Yoga as taught by Patanjali.  Each Spring an immersive week long offering called THE EIGHTFOLD PATH will take place in a unique location.  Each year will focus on one limb at time.    

We start at the beginning this March of 2018 in Costa Rica with YAMA.  The cycle completes in the Spring of 2025 with SAMADHI.  Each retreat is an independent and complete offering.  You can attend any number of retreats over the years.

THE EIGHTFOLD PATH is for anyone looking for a template for deep self inquiry and a path to self knowledge.

THE PATH BEGINS MARCH 2018
