COSTA RICA: Winter Solstice Sol Celebration
About This Event
Join us for our annual Solstice-New Year retreat at Blue Spirit, Nosara. The Winter Solstice is one of the oldest and most potent rituals of renewal as the turning point of increasing light, a ritual marker to truly let go, honor and bring closure to the past year and ignite our deepest visions and intentions for our collective destiny as the light is emerging.
Welcome in the new year with a transformational Sol Revival retreat at Blue Spirit in Nosara, Costa Rica, a world-class surf spot and turtle reserve where the power of the warm, healing ocean meets the jungle. Awaken the power of the Solstice - New Year as we open to the rejuvenating rhythm of living yoga, natural meditation, and liberating jungle-ocean flow. Enjoy the magic of each day with optional activities ranging from surfing, transformational yoga, sunset horseback riding, to zipping down the longest, most exhilarating canopy in the world! Whether you are an experienced surfer, have always wanted to surf, or just want to go deeper into fluid power vinyasa with Shiva, we will enter the Solstice/New Year in an empowering and rejuvenating rhythm of living yoga, healing relaxation, and liberating play.
In our Living Flow Ashram Retreat, we create three paths of transformation and provide you with your special program for each week that gives you the space, options and menu of life-transformation:
Lunar Path: rejuvenation and relaxation
Solar Path: sacred training and adventure
Teacher Training Path: professional program for Solar/Lunar Prana Vinyasa, Living Ayurveda and Prana Danda Vinyasa
Unwind from the year, call in the Solstice-New Year, live the magic of each day and go deeper into embodied healing and vitality.
Enjoy a skillfully-crafted week in an empowering and rejuvenating rhythm of living yoga, healing relaxation, and liberating play.
