Renew, Recharge & Regenerate: 8-Day Chakra Tuning Yoga Retreat in Costa Rica

with Deb Buck

December 31, 2021 – January 7, 2022

Blue Osa | Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica

Immersed in Nature’s sanctuary, this oceanside Hatha Yoga retreat will support our bodies, hearts and minds to renew, recharge and regenerate over the New Year. We will transition into this new beginning together with practices, community and relationship with Nature. Each day’s practice will be an invitation to transform and fortify ourselves through tuning one chakra per day. Classes will be woven with rich insight through the wisdom of Patanjali Yoga Sutras to compliment the process.

In the summer season of Costa Rica on the awe-inspiring Osa Peninsula, we will follow the path towards home inside of ourselves through playfulness, self-reflection & honoring the sacred. The practice of Yoga in Nature reflects to us the deep innate wisdom and remembrance which lies within each of us. This retreat is a call to heal, a call to remember, a call to fortify. The practice of Yoga is a process in which we literally come to land in ourselves.

Blue Osa, a place dedicated to deep healing and personal growth, located on the Osa Peninsula, one of the most biodiverse places on the planet. In the jungle, 50 yards from a secluded beach.

All levels welcome!

All activities are optional to give you permission to take the space you need to embody the intention of renewal & regeneration.

Testimonials about Deb:

“Deb’s authentic embodiment of yoga and generosity of spirit are what make her such a special teacher. Her ongoing dedication to deep study and devoted practice allows her to seamlessly weave together classes that are innovative, challenging and thought-provoking.

While she approaches yoga with profound sincerity and respect, Deb also brings a lightness and sense of play. She encourages her students by providing thoughtful cueing and supportive variations, so that each individual feels cared for even while in a group setting. It has been a true gift to have studied with Deb for over a decade!” ~ D.L.

“As a student of Deb’s yoga classes for the past 4 years, I have found her to be an extraordinary teacher. Deb has the rare gift of holding a container for her students allowing each to feel seen and cared for according to their own needs. Deb effortlessly connects the spiritual practice of yoga with the physical and challenges her students to lean more deeply into the postures through the teachings of the yoga sutras. Her classes always give you something to take into your day for reflection and practice. My posture and alignment have improved significantly under Deb’s expert guidance. I highly recommend experiencing yoga with Deb Buck.” ~M.H
