Tantra Vinyasa Retreat with Banyan Gallagher February 1st-8th, 2014
Explore the majesty of Montezuma, Costa Rica with Banyan Gallagher, one of the world's most sincere, genuine, dedicated, and lighthearted yogis. Never afraid to have a laugh and always prepared to challenge students on levels physical, mental, and energetic, Banyan is a warm soul whose presence offers a genuine calm to all those around him. Anyone who's spent time in the tutelage of this athlete/mustache competitor/performance artist/yogi/clown will speak to Banyan's capabilities as a teacher.
Two full sessions of yoga daily in the tantric tradition This retreat will revolve around a deeper understanding of yoga and tantra, the ancient yogic science of techniques designed to help us overcome our limitations(think subtle fears and mental blocks, not just tight hamstrings!). Banyan’s deep and yet playful approach will inspire a loving self-inquiry and a new direction to your practice. All levels of student are welcome.
Each day we will have two sessions together.
The morning session, from 7-9 am, will be a more solar, physical practice to help us wake, detox and prepare for the day. The afternoon session, usually 5:30 - 7:30pm, will be on the more subtle side focusing on philosophy + discussion, breathwork, meditation, and inversions. The schedule is designed to maximize free time so we can explore everything the Nicoya Peninsula has to offer.
This will truly be a life-changing retreat, with a small, intimate group. Expect to leave more relaxed, stronger, invigorated and with more mental clarity on how to live your life to the fullest. Prices range from $1165 to $1350 for the whole retreat, or "Yoga Only" budget option available (find your own food and accommodation) Please visit www.yogaretreatwithbanyan for all details.
