The tropical rainforest of Costa Rica is one of the most ecologically diverse and beautiful landscapes in the world. Through masterfully led yoga, breathwork, and Forest Bathing you will experience the profound sacredness and vitality of this landscape as well as the wholeness, sacred, and vitality within you. On this journey, your heart will expand and awaken to experience greater joy, inner peace, and freedom that you can incorporate into everyday life.
