Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga

Deepening Mindfulness Through Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga - 50 HRS: 30 CONTACT HRS + 20 NON CONTACT HRS

Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, a practice deeply rooted in ancient wisdom, carries a rich tradition and lineage. Devoting time to understand the profound philosophy and fascinating history behind Ashtanga Vinyasa not only enriches our comprehension of the practice but also deepens our appreciation of the art of yoga as a whole.

The essence of Ashtanga Vinyasa lies in the profound concentration and presence it demands throughout the entire practice. It insists on an undivided, continual focus on the rhythmic flow of your breath and the sensations within your body. This concentrated focus cultivates a state of mindfulness that extends beyond the yoga mat, permeating every aspect of daily life.

In consciously directing your attention in this manner during your Ashtanga Vinyasa practice, you invite an increased awareness of your inner self. This heightened awareness fosters a deeper understanding not just of oneself, but also of our relationship with the world around us. The wisdom and profound self-discovery that emerge from a dedicated practice of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga are among the many gifts it bestows.

Yoga Nidra

Serenity Unveiled: Yoga Nidra in the Heart of Eastern Traditions - 10 HRS

Yoga Nidra, an Eastern meditation practice, guides individuals to a state between waking and sleeping, transcending ordinary relaxation. Beyond physical postures, it dives into the mind and emotions, offering profound relaxation, mental clarity, and inner peace.

Yoga Nidra facilitates deep self-connection by rewiring the nervous system, eliminating negative patterns and stimulating cellular healing. It cultivates rejuvenation and growth in your Yoga practice and teaching profession.

About The Host


Originally from Canada, Terry found her heart rooted in the vibrant jungle life of Costa Rica in 1995. Back then, Cahuita was a tiny town with one public telephone - and Puerto Viejo wasn’t even on the map. For Terry, life had been filled with adventurous inspirational tales of travel, cultures, languages, foods, and leaping into the unknown. The decades of travel had shown her the best and worst of humanity, the love that transcended all cultural barriers, as well as the hate that could turn human hearts cold and violent. Most of all chaos, surrounded by dramatic family strife, alcoholism, abuse and depression - in hindsight, a collision of unresolved traumas mixed with a deep desire to love and be loved.

The beacon that guided Terry out of her darkest abyss was Yoga with Horses, a journey that began in 2013. As a woman experiencing the solitude of autonomy for the first time, after the dissolution of two marriages and the heartache of losing both parents, she found herself at the crossroads of life at the age of 50. No longer bound by the roles of a dutiful daughter and wife, she embarked on a quest for meaning and purpose. The realization dawned that there was a space waiting to be filled, a path yearning to be tread upon - a path leading to her own self, her unique purpose. It was through the practice of yoga and the serene companionship of horses that she discovered a haven from her trauma, a sanctuary where her spirit could heal and flourish. As well as the monumental strength to release her soul from the chains of generational cycles, to dare to really change, create new patterns and write her own story.

Terry's story is a testament to resilience, a narrative that echoes the transformative power of self-discovery and the healing essence of connection - not just with oneself but also with the vibrant energy of the natural world.

It's a journey that resonates with the desire within us all, to find the joyful love within.
