Power Your Practice

April 8 - 15, 2018

POWER YOUR PRACTICE!
April 8th-15th, 2017
Playa Hermosa, Costa Rica
Join us next year for another wonderful retreat in at the exotic Vida Asana Eco-Retreat & Yoga Center in Costa Rica. In addition to daily pilates and MELT classes there will be day excursions, and ample time to spend by the ocean!

Classes (Pilates, MELT and even some Yoga)
During this 7 day retreat you will practice the MELT Method, including its Neurostrength Techniques designed to activate the core and strengthen and stabilize the shoulder and pelvic girdles. We will then use the increased flexibility and strength to delve deep into the Pilates Mat work. We are hoping to lure special guests to do some complementary instruction, but that will be a secret surprise. On top of this, optional daily Yoga classes, by a wonderful local instructor, will happen at the retreat for those who can’t get enough of a workout.

Vida Asana Eco-Retreat & Yoga Center
For those of you who weren’t able to make it this year, we missed you and you will love this place. Vida Asana Eco-Retreat & Yoga Center located on the pacific coast in Costa Rica. It is a beautiful retreat center and eco-resort providing lodging and delicious, fresh organic meals. On site are spa treatments as well as yoga classes.

Optional Activities available (at additional cost):

  • Paddle Boarding
  • Surfing Lessons
  • Temescal Sweat Lodge
  • Zip Lining

We encourage guests to soak up the sounds, smells, and visually appealing landscape, while letting go and allowing their soul room to breathe. Be as active or as indolent as you like. This is your week to unwind, renew, refresh and recharge.
