Pilar Salazar - Costa Rica Yoga Retreat Instructor


Our new yoga retreat will go into the history and philosophy, as well as the physical part of the yoga practice. Most importantly, it will help you explore ways to take your yoga practice off the mat. It will have two main components: the Asana (physical practice), and the 8 Limbs of Ashtanga Yoga (philosophy and history).

"Yoga has never been a thing that I enjoyed doing in the past... but I think a lot of it is I've never had instructors that were kind of explaining the philosophy behind the yoga. I LOVED the yoga class with Pilar because it was much more than all the movements, but there was also the philosophy and what all the postures mean and represent... I would take classes with Pilar probably every day if I could. She is AMAZING!"

"I am someone who has never really enjoyed yoga, but that completely changed with Pilar's classes. Her yoga classes were hands down the best yoga classes I have ever taken, and the first ones that really made me understand why so many people love yoga practice. She is great at providing adaptations for those who are beginners, and with helping the more advanced students progress."
