Power Yoga Immersion

What is greatness? We use the word great so much that much of its significance is lost. To call something great could even make us think that whatever it is, it’s nothing special. However, the word “great” is synonymous with words such as: immense, enormous, huge, vast and grand! Within each of us is greatness. An immense, vast and grand energy of love, light, hope, talent, spirituality and freedom from the perceptions that hold us back.

This January, make a plan to join Melanie Taylor and Joseph Stingley in stunning and exotic Costa Rica for a yoga retreat you won’t forget.

Included in your retreat:

  • 5 relaxing and life affirming nights at the Pura Vida Spa nestled in the lush jungle of Costa Rica.
  • Each morning will begin with a guided meditation walk, followed by a healthy gourmet breakfast.
  • 90 minute morning practice led by either Melanie or Joseph.
  • 3 delicious health-minded buffet style meals with vegetarian, fish and chicken options.
  • Another powerful 90 minute evening practice.
  • 2 additional workshops offered to you during the week led by Melanie and Joseph for the deepening of your practice and offer an even closer look at how we tap into the greatness that we already possess. This awareness with ourselves can bless our lives and others.
  • Use of swimming pool and hot tub.

You can fill your day with amazing hikes around the property, spend it in the spa receiving wonderful treatments, lounge by the pool, zip line over the jungle, read a book or take a nap . . . the sky’s the limit!
