Danyasa Eco-Retreat  |  Dominical, Costa Rica

– A Journey Into the Feminine Mysteries –

Embody. Empower. Express. Evolve.

 

Danyasa Yoga Arts, created by Sofiah Thom, comprises a dynamic fusion of vinyasa yoga, and expressive movement designed to access creative potential and empower the graceful warrior within. Dance + Vinyasa = Danyasa!

As a Danyasa Yoga Arts teacher, you are encouraged to listen to the wisdom of your body as your innate and ultimate teacher in order to bring your dreams and visions into form.

At Danyasa, we teach and practice yoga guided by the Four E’s:  EMBODY, EMPOWER, EXPRESS, EVOLVE.

EMPOWER: While honoring the wisdom of traditional yoga practices, Danyasa Yoga Arts empowers you to explore the wisdom of your own body, mind and spirit as you awaken your graceful warrior and claim your purpose.

EVOLVE: Recognize life is about the journey and how you you show up to live into your pure potentiality, always growing and shifting on this path of evolution.

EMBODY: Come home to the wisdom of your body. Learn the ways of moving and aligning in asana that support your physical and spiritual growth.

EXPRESS: Give yourself permission to let go and allow your authentic self to shine through. Confidence in your uniqueness of style and voice is what makes you a great teacher.

EMBODY: Come home to the wisdom of your body. Learn the ways of moving and aligning in asana that support your physical and spiritual growth.

IS THIS TRAINING FOR ME?

Do you feel ready to step into the role of an embodied feminine leader?
Practice finding and expressing your voice with a supportive group of women as you clarify and crystalize what your unique offering to the world looks like. Through peer teaching, communication exercises and song circles we hold space for you to practice the leadership role in divine feminine grace.
Are you interested in learning more about yoga at its roots beyond the physical practice?
Experience the power of ceremony and ritual to set intentions for the way your life unfolds. Claim your sovereignty and step through the multidimensional portal of the practice of yoga. Through mantra, meditation, dance and asana, we’ll weave together beauty beyond the mat.
Do you feel called to move and dance, but have no dance background?
 
Movement is our birthright. No dance training or background is necessary to find your flow. It’s not about being “good at it”. We dance to get out of our heads, connect with our bodies, and find the freedom that comes with movement. 
Are you curious about the asana practice?
 
Although dance is blended into this YTT, you will also leave with a solid understanding of Vinyasa class structure. Sun Salutations, key poses and mini sequences will be covered extensively. You will also learn hands on assists and how to safely offer assists and adjustment to your students.

Colynn Vosburgh yoga lead instructor YTT

Colynn Vosburgh – E-RYT 500

Co-Lead Trainer

Colynn Vosburgh E-RYT 500 started her journey in the healthcare field in 2000 while simultaneously also beginning her path in yoga. Moving through the ranks of uncertified Home Support Worker, Care Aide, Licensed Practical Nurse and then Registered Nurse, all within the Emergency Department, she thought she had found her place in the world. After years of service, being overworked and under appreciated, Colynn experienced burnout and decided that being a doctor was likely the answer to it all… She applied to and was accepted to Medical School and coincidentally also did her yoga teacher training. She immediately recognized that Med School was not the answer, but felt locked in due to family support and an incredibly large student loan. Colynn journeyed through it all, starting a yoga business while raising a family, while working as a nurse and becoming a doctor. Little sleep and an incredibly packed schedule, brought her to a place of committing to a path, and she chose the path of yoga. She decided to leave medical school and retire from nursing and put all of her energy into yoga and eventually coaching others in life and business. As life does, continued challenges of empty nest and new relationships brought her to the point of selling everything and starting on the nomadic path.

The path of yoga and coaching has brought Colynn’s western knowledge and clinical experience to meet with her eastern yoga philosophy and chakra work to create her very personal and individually tailored offerings. She is filled with joy to offer anatomy lessons, yoga classes, past life regressions and facilitate teacher trainings to support awakening however that looks to each person. She has been a part of over 100 yoga teacher trainings and has thousands of hours of study, programs and self development to guide each student in understanding their own yoga journey.

Maite Onochie – E-RYT 300

Pre-Post Natal Teacher, Women’s Yoga, Womb Wisdom

Maite will be joining us to share an introduction to prenatal and women’s yoga. After 15 years of working internationally as a social anthropologist specialised in early childhood development and childrearing, Maite’s deep heart-knowing took her on a profound pilgrimage, from her heart into the depths of her womb. It was here that she realized the need in these modern times to re-inhabit our bodies, and in doing so, the potentiality in ending cycles of violence.  

Today, she weaves the ancient practices of the yogic tradition, her background as birthworker and the latest science that supports and reaffirms the ancient ways of returning to the body through intentional breathwork, expressive movement, prayer and intention. 

Maite supports women to explore, dive deep and access the inner wisdom that enables one to live in joy, liberation, pure presence and radical pleasure. 
In the same way that Maite supports birthing people to remember how to inhabit the divine vessel that is the body and how to trust in their ability to birth lovingly and pleasurably, she calls upon all of us to access and TRUST the sacred potential of conscious conception, conscious gestation, conscious birth and ultimately conscious parenting.

The more we live connected to our bodies and its cyclical rhythms the more we will ultimately live in harmony with the Great Cosmic Womb.
