200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training and Thai Yoga Bodywork Certification in Nosara, Costa Rica

It's community….a place to gather to get the breath in You. 

To let the breath move you. 

It’s a shedding with special attention paid to the moments right as you are letting go. There’s a silent understanding now to submerge and swim beyond the self built boundaries. It’s the “goings on” of the deeper inner layers and how it all works. Soup to nuts. Bones to skin. All over the inside. All over the outside. It’s Practice. 

And if you’re dying to deepen it come study with us.

Lori Bonazzoli

E-RYT

Lori’s journey into the practice of Yoga began when she was 17 through self study and with the Spiritual Human Yoga School where she engaged in a deep practice of seated meditation. Through that experience, she ventured out and began her study of asana which led to her initial certification as a Bikram Yoga Instructor. After 18 years of diving deep into body and mind Lori has many asana teachers she pays homage to, blending her experiences into spiritual, compassionate, alignment based hot vinyasa classes sprinkled with little bits of Tibetan Buddhism and a strong emphasis on seated meditation. While Lori’s classes and practices are firmly rooted in the ancient Yogic traditions you will find yourself playfully dabbling in some not so traditional movements, exploring your self created boundaries and learning how to listen to the voice of the body.
