SLOW DOWN, REFINE AND AWAKEN: A COSTA RICAN YOGA RETREAT FOR ALL LEVELS WITH KRISTIN OLSON

Costa Rica

Highlights

Daily Yoga Practices 3 Whole Foods Meals Each Day Personal Retreat Time

Overview

Join us in beautiful Costa Rica for a yoga retreat that will awaken your senses and renew your spirit. Not only will you partake in daily alignment-based vinyasa and relaxing restorative classes, but also the surrounding rainforest will offer unique healing that only nature can offer. This retreat is open to any yogi, or potential yogi, looking to unwind from the stressors of everyday life and return home feeling refreshed and focused.

Kristin teaches an alignment-based vinyasa class that borrows moving with breath from the Ashtanga tradition and precise alignment from the Iyengar system. The result is a focused practice that forces us to slow down, pay better attention, make better choices and thus act more skillfully — which, as the Bhagavad Gita says, is the definition of Yoga.

In this vein, each day will offer an in-depth look at the different families of yoga poses in accessible ways for participants of all levels. Days will end with a quieting, more restorative practice, allowing participants the stillness to take in the beautiful environment.

Instructors

KRISTIN OLSON

Kristin’s yoga journey began at age 14 when she stumbled upon an Ali McGraw yoga video at Blockbuster. Since then she has been practicing for nearly 26 years and hopes to be practicing for decades more. She loves noticing how her own practice, and others’, ebbs and flows depending on different stages of life, yet always knowing the constant is a disciplined yoga practice, whether that is rigorous asana or quieting meditation.

Kristin’s teaching has been strongly influenced by internationally esteemed yoga teacher Natasha Rizopoulos, with whom she earned both her 200-hour and 500-hour Yoga Alliance-compliant teacher certificate. She has assisted Natasha with YogaWorks teacher trainings and at Kripalu Yoga Center continuously. This unique mentorship has allowed her to lead students through intelligent sequences with precise instruction. She has also study regularly with revered master Iyengar yoga teacher Patricia Walden.

Kristin leads workshops and teacher trainings for beginner students as well as advanced practitioners. She is a contributing writer for Boston Yoga and LA Yoga magazine and writes a monthly column Poise dedicated to emphasizing the true essence of asana.
