iyengar yoga intensive pachamama costa ricaThe Iyengar Yoga Intensive is a three-day workshop that explores the family of asanas as they were taught by renowned teacher B.K.S Iyengar. Iyengar Yoga emphasizes precision in the asana, using props, accurate sequences and timings to cultivate respect for the body and eliminate physical injuries. A new quality of the practice is revealed through this unique lens – the quality of “effortless effort”.

For many, Iyengar’s language of yoga is a gateway into the ancient art-form. Its creative use of props combined with Vaya’s meditative approach to yoga allows the asana to be embodied fully and deeply, transcending the limitations of physical and mental flexibility. Vaya’s vast knowledge and experience, attention to detail and her soft, light-hearted approach to the practice sets the stage for a deep and meaningful meeting with yoga.

The group’s daily schedule is comprised of three classes: pranayama and asana practice in the morning and gentle, restorative yoga practice in the afternoon. The last morning will be spent practicing on the beach, exploring ways to practice outside and integrate yoga more fully into everyday life.

Unstructured personal time will be dedicated each day to address questions concerning injuries and special physical conditions, create personalized sequences and turn inward for self-practice.

Iyengar yoga workshop was a great gift for me. From the beginning Vaya created a friendly and competent atmosphere, leading the class with a dedication and grace. In addition to being very structural and helpful Vaya connected me to the main force and source of Iyengar yoga – Iyengar himself! The wisdom of his beliefs and philosophy brought the last piece of a great puzzle together and planted deep trust in this type of yoga. Thank you, Vaya!

Thank you Vaya Yoga for such a wonderful and profound Iyengar Yoga workshop!
Your inspiring teaching, together with the magical atmosphere of Pachamama have made it a unique and insightful experience.

Thanks for these uplifting and memorable three days.
Much love and gratitude,
Naama Tanne & Doron Cohen
