Thai Massage Training lead by Janice Gagnon:
Metta first, technique second
The Spiritual healing aspects of Thai massage with a focus on the Divine Feminine.
Using your intuition for deeper healing from an energetic approach
Looking at “the big picture” with your client from a holistic point of view rather than just the physical aspects
Open-hearted loving kindness is one of the foundations of Traditional Thai massage. We will be exploring Metta through Thai healing interventions and technique as well as through guided meditation, and spiritual teaching.

Yoga lead by Sarah Robinson:
Based in Hatha yoga.  Balancing the sun and moon within us with breath work and gentle nurturing poses blended with strength and flow. We will connect with our breath through awareness and mindful movement. Activating our physical body to cleanse and purify the nadis (energetic channels of the body) to assist in connecting more deeply to our inner knowing, our inner being.
This is yoga, joining mind, body and breath.  Showing up fully in the present, just as we are. 

Meditation

Qi Gong, Yoga, Guided and Silent meditation will be lead everyday,

Itinerary

  • 7 Nights and 8 Days
  • 7 nights in an intimate group setting at a beautiful villa close to the ocean
  • Free time for reflection, journaling and relaxing on the beach or at the pool. After all you will be in Costa Rica! Yoga, meditation and Thai massage will be offered for 4 hours of the day, not necessarily all at once, so that there is plenty of free time to drop in to a deeper experience of yourself, to relax or to go on adventures.
  • Local adventures: surfing, horseback riding, zip-lining, ATVs, volcanoes, turtle nesting beach (optional)
  • Thai Massage treatments offered by your group leaders (retreat rate $60/hr)
  • Simple organic vegetarian meals with a Costa Rican twist.
  • Airport transfers included

Intentions

This trip is for anyone who wants to weave these three practices– an ancient healing art based in metta, yoga, and spiritual awakening– into their lives in order to have tools to more fully embrace all of life.
To Create an environment where you can listen to, feel and be led by your inner knowing. To reconnect with the nurturing aspect of the Divine feminine. To remember the wisdom, strength, power and beauty of the way of the woman. This journey of reconnection is one of curiosity and playful surrender,  one of trust and compassion. Together we are strong, together we heal, together we rise.

Also for those wanting a heart felt adventure in a country whose national creed is “pura vida”, which directly translates as pure life but it can also mean “life is now” or “I am alive” and it is a statement of pure gratitude.  Pura vida is a feeling of acceptance and trust and being present. The good and the bad, the triumph and hardship is all Pura vida.

Yoga Teacher/Thai massage therapist

Sarah Robinson~Sarahswati
I am passionate about helping others connect more deeply to themselves through yoga and bodywork. I have been practicing yoga for 17 years and Thai massage for 8 years. I have studied many different modalities of yoga, with an emphasis on Hatha yoga.
I received my teachers training through the Sivananda Vedanta Center in northern California and I studied Thai massage at Spirit Winds School of Thai Massage in Northern California as well. Yoga and Thai massage complement each other perfectly and I am truly grateful for the opportunity to help my clients feel better in their body, mind and spirit.
I grew up in Southern California and have had the opportunity to live in many beautiful places, including Costa Rica. I very much enjoy adventure, travel and sharing my practice of yoga and bodywork wherever I go.
