At dinnertime, your mouth will take a culinary tour through Costa Rica and also savor dishes from around the world. Connect with yourself and others enjoying the candlelight mood or the reflection of the moon over the ocean. Leave some time to enjoy your comfortable bed and surrender to your sleep with the sounds of nature.


John Wylie: I am RYT – 200 certified under Bill Raup at Power Yoga Works in 2007. I have also done teacher training with Shiva Rea at Kripalu and I am currently studying Iyengar with John White in Philadelphia. I have been practicing yoga for about 12 years and teaching for three. I love the flow and I think of my style of teaching as “Flowing into Form, then freezing in Stillness and into Freedom!” I am also an ex-martial artist, having studied Muji-Shin Te under Sensei Thomas Coleman for approximately 20 years. I love the beach at any time and I love the sun.

Melanie Lighty: Melanie began her yoga practice seven years ago as a way to release stress and tension from a fast-paced, high stress job. Her desire is to help lead others down this path with the mind, body and spiritual connection yoga brings to light. Melanie received her teacher training from the Mt. Nittany Institute of Natural Health in 2010. Her teaching style has been influenced by her teachers, past experiences and a goal to help each student create their own version of what yoga means to them with a sense of humor and the mindset of a beginner. She is also the mother to a peppy Corgie/ Shiba Inu mix, Javier. Besides her love of yoga, Melanie enjoys spending her spare time running, hiking, biking, traveling and exploring!

Alain Benitez: I was drawn into yoga by a headstand but it only took just a class to realize there was more to yoga than that. I’ve been practicing for over 5 years and teaching for the past two years. My teaching is based on the sequences by Baron Baptiste, and incorporations of others styles such as Anusara and Iyengar. The combination of alignment and breath with an egoless practice is key for safety and growth. Born in the Caribbean, a lover of winter and snow but with hot breaks in the tropics.
