Yoga in PachaMama

    Yoga in PachaMama is an essential part of village life. The oxygen-rich Costa Rican forest environment along with high-vibe, organic, vegetarian nutrition support the physical aspect of the yoga journey, while the meditative atmosphere – which is the foundation of this community –  allows to deeply explore yoga’s spiritual facets.

    With the support of ceremony, emotional awareness workshops, daily silent sitting, and other healing processes, a complete and unique experience of yoga is created, tapping into its transformative potential. Whether participating in a specific yoga retreat or attending daily classes, the presence of silence and transformation lies in the foundation of every practice.

    A unique, non-dogmatic approach to yoga has developed in PachaMama, inspired by the new generation of Western teachers currently leading the evolution of this ancient science. Some of the paths and traditions explored in PachaMama include Hatha, Restorative, Vinyasa, Iyengar, and Calligraphy Yoga.

    Free yoga classes are offered daily, and various yoga retreats are scheduled around the year, including Dance & Yoga, Yoga Intensives, and Restorative workshops.

    Yoga Teacher Trainings also take place throughout the season, taking participants on deep transformational journeys into the heart of yoga and beyond.

    200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training

    The 200-hour PachaMama Yoga Teacher Training is based on the modalities of Hatha and Vinyasa yoga. A journey through the elements, this training also serves to remember the ancient ways of the earth.

    Offering practices outside the traditional boundaries of yoga one can connect with their own fluidity, passion, and strength. Connecting to the inner curiosity and trust gives a foundation to follow one’s individual, unique path of yoga on and off the mat.

    This 200-hour Teacher Training is unique in that it is held by the lush forest of Costa Rica, and immersed within a spiritually- and ecologically-minded community.

    Iyengar Yoga Retreat

    This Iyengar Yoga Retreat provides an opportunity to open a portal to self-realization and freedom through an individualized and supportive yoga practice while attuning to nature and the beauty that surrounds the village of PachaMama.

    The Iyengar Yoga style 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 prevent physical injuries. A new quality of the practice is revealed through this unique lens – the quality of “effortless effort”.

    Iyengar Yoga

    Iyengar Yoga is characterized by great attention to detail and a precise focus on body alignment. Iyengar pioneered the use of “props” such as cushions, benches, blocks, and straps that function as aids to allow the practitioner to experience asanas on a deeper level. Throughout the season, Iyengar workshops are offered in day events, morning intensives, or full-day groups.
