Summary

How would it feel to LET GO, to just BE YOU and to FLOW LIKE WATER in a remote and lush corner of southern Costa Rica where the rainforest meets the sea? The Osa Peninsula is one of the most biologically diverse places on earth where there are giant trees, pot-bellied spider monkeys, harpy eagles, prowling jaguars, herds of white-lipped peccary, northern and southern humpback whales, beautiful sea turtles, playful dolphins and so much more!

yoga retreat costa ricaAligning with nature, each day begins with a group meditation walk followed by a flowing series of asanas (vinyasa) linked by the breath, designed to build strength and stamina in the body and tranquility in the mind.

Evening practices will include Sound Healing, Yoga Nidra/Meditation, Yin, and Daily Reflection that will allow time to let all your good days work crystalize so that it becomes permanent and real.

Teachers

KERRY MCKENZIE
Kerry McKenzie is an E-RYT 500 hour certified yoga teacher. She began to deepen her yoga practice over 10 years ago when she was faced with the reality of having to undergo yet another knee surgery. She was feeling helpless, depressed, and scared that she would not be able to have the life that she loved adventure and physical activity. Soon, she turned those doubts into action by studying the physical, mental, and spiritual side of yoga so she could help herself physically, calm her mind, and connect with something greater than herself. She completely fell in love with yoga. She began teaching vinyasa, restorative, and yin soon after completing her 200-hour certification and she hasn’t stopped studying (and never will). She studied yoga Nidra, Ayurveda wellness, and yoga therapy, completed her RYT 500 level, and now has put in over 1,000 teaching hours that include studio classes, private sessions, yoga teacher training, workshops, karma yoga, kids yoga, and more. Her most adventurous and unforgettable accomplishment was successfully co-leading a yoga retreat in Peru in 2018.

DAVID WHITE
David White was introduced to yoga decades ago by his brother when he showed him one of the sun salutations which he integrated into his morning meditation and movement…but it was about 15 years ago when he started practicing in a yoga studio. He met Kerry McKenzie in 2007 and they started doing yoga together and immersed more fully when Kerry started teaching. In 2015, Kerry and David spent a week in the Bahamas at the Sivananda Ashram for a weeklong yoga Nidra certification course. In 2018, David provided a supportive role on a yoga retreat in Peru that Kerry co-led, including logistics, leading hikes, and meditation as well as music. In 2019, he completed his RYT200 level at Integrative Yoga Therapy in Easley, SC, and soon started teaching, primarily vinyasa, filling in for teachers as needed. As a musician, David partnered with Kerry in leading several sound healing and Yin workshops. He loves sharing the practice of yoga, breath and movement and all that it brings with it.
