Awake - A Costa Rica Yoga Sanctuary

How it works

You have the opportunity to stay at Awake for a minimum of 1 week, to participate in our daily classes and select 3 workshops per week from the teacher training program.

Here is the list with the workshops you can choose from:

 

  • Week 1: (May 6-10) 

  • Time 10-11:30 am

 

Yoga Philosophy Workshop : Karma to Dharma (May 6)

The ancient teachings of yoga empower you to re-shape your mental habits, physical health, relationship dynamics and connection to existence. 

 

In this workshop you will be introduced to the yogic knowledge and processes that makes this possible.

 

We will:

 

Unpack the meaning of the word “karma” - as well as dispell common myths surrounding it - as we examine how it dictates our experience of life 

 

Explore the vast and rich meaning of the word ‘dharma’ and why it is the fundamental principle that helps us create the life that we truly want

 

Explain the yogic view of how our thoughts, feelings and choices can be directed to a deeper purpose that connects us with the evolutionary process

Somatic Workshop: The Body Oracle (May 8)

What if your body was one of your greatest allies? Meaning that by turning towards the sensations of the body, you can tune into what’s really going on in your life?

 

Soul-Somatic Inquiry uses practical & mystical modalities that invites curiosity— the portal to creativity, intuition and our innate healing capacities & wisdom.

 

The framework for these inquiries ranges from explorations in movement, postures, body sensing, dialoguing with “parts”, identifying negative core beliefs, affirmations, aroma point therapy, (essential oils on acupoints) authentic relating & core energetic principles.

  

As we become familiar with the messages brought forth from the nervous system we begin the journey into sense making. 

 

Here is where we systematically receive guidance and formulate our own inner standing of what was, what is and what will be.

Sound Yoga: Mantras and Myths of India (May 10)

India is a land of story, a place where the Gods show up to play and communicate in the language of nature and soul. The basis of the Sanskrit language was downloaded by the great Seers of old in the form of mantra - mystical energies encased in sound. Some say each letter corresponds to a divine energy, hence the name of the Sanskrit alphabet “Devanagari: the city of the gods”.

 

In this workshop, we will explore the mythic stories and mystic truths behind the mantras we’ve come to love in the eastern traditions of India. We will also chant them together and open our voices through simple exercises in Indian Music. 

  • Week 2 (May 13-17)
    Yoga Philosophy Workshop : The Yogic Blueprint
    Somatic Workshop: Polyvagal Theory and The Gunas
    Sound Yoga: Kirtan and Devotional Music

 

  • Week 3 (May 20 - 24)
    Yoga Philosophy Workshop: Samkhya Philosophy
    Asana Clinic: Yoga alignment & Sequencing
