Take a sacred sabbatical from your busy life and the cold winter weather. Join Karina Ayn Mirsky on the Pacific shore of the lush Costa Rican Rainforest. This retreat offers an opportunity to restore your vital energy, revitalize your life, and reach into and out from your Heart.
Karina Ayn Mirsky MA, ERYT, is a widely sought after senior ParaYoga teacher and trainer, a faculty member of the Himalayan Institute, and an educator at YogaInternational.com. Karina brings 17 years of teaching experience to her understanding about service to others and to ourselves.
The focus of this retreat stems from the Tantric view that the human body and mind is like a vessel; a container for “prana” or vital life force energy. When we serve others but don’t replenish our own internal resources, we can become depleted and susceptible to ill health.
When we regularly fill and refill our energetic vessel, we can joyFULLY and healthFULLY serve the world from “a cup overflowing.” - Karina Mirsky
This retreat will take place at the exquisite eco-resort, Blue Osa, situated on the Pacific coast on the Osa Peninsula of Costa Rica. National Geographic Magazine named this region “the most biologically intense place on earth.”Location_plane
Your pranic adventure begins with an epic flight from the San Jose airport to the Puerto Jimenez landstrip. This 45 minute flight will carry you over some of earth’s most breath-taking landscape, where movies such as Jurassic Park were filmed. (Flights are purchased separately, see below).
Each morning we will gather on the amazing second story yoga deck, overlooking the great Pacific Ocean. We’ll greet each day in meditation, then move into asana practice focused on absorbing and directing prana. Our afternoons will include time on the beach, time for resting, spa services, and optional activities. In the evenings we’ll reconvene for Sunset Ceremony, satsang (lecture), and practicums (including yoga nidra, pranayama, etc.)
serviceOne afternoon, after we have replenished our own vessels, we will step out in the local rural community and participate in a service project. This is a rare opportunity to give back to the Costa Rican community and feel the heartfelt benefits of outreach. Prepare to get your hands dirty and your heart touched.
