The Retreat and Workshop
Join us for a 5 Day intensive retreat to give you the opportunity to deepen your knowledge and experience of all the 8 limbs of yoga. All levels of experience are welcome, from beginner to experienced yogi.
During this retreat we’ll be looking at the depth of the postures, breathing techniques, meditation and more. It will give you everything you need to create more health and happiness in your life!
You’ll be staying at the Tiskita Jungle Lodge, located in a biological reserve in the beautiful south of Costa Rica. With the beach just five minutes away and abundant wildlife on your doorstep.
Jess joined the Tiskita team last year and when the season was over travelled around Central and South America. She is back this year for a couple of months and we want to learn as much as we can from her experience and teachings. We thought to offer a workshop and retreat so everyone can benefit from her knowledge.
Jess has a 500 hr yoga teaching qualification in Karuna yoga (Iyengar inspired) and has been teaching regular classes to the public and privately since April 2012. She incorporate aspects of physical postures, breathing, meditation and relaxation into her classes and is able to work with a range of abilities as needed. She also works as an Ayurvedic Health Practitioner which includes many types of Ayurvedic massage and body therapies along with health consultations.
If you’re not going to the retreat and are interested in coming, you may reserve at a reduced rate by contacting us
