Enter our spacious open-air yoga studio and feel yourself go, ahhhh. Relax your gaze onto layers of deep green jungle as the sounds of geckos and birds punctuate the silence. Look out onto the incredible natural surroundings. No walls. No mirrors. The space itself is soothing. And so are our classes. We believe in a conscious practice and encourage balance from the inside out. We support a healthy, balanced lifestyle. With a roster of incredible instructors a variety of classes offered seven days a week, we love working with yogis at every level. Adjacent to our yoga studio, is an additional open-air yoga sanctuary located near a lily-filled pond where our animal friends get water in the dry season.

Our yoga schedule is posted below, and full class and workshop descriptions/schedules are available by clicking HERE (to view or download a PDF).  We’re happy to offer our hotel guests one complimentary yoga class per day during their stay. Personal and private classes are available as are studio rentals. For more information: yoga@harmonynosara.com.

Harmony Yoga

Start the morning right.  This class, taught by a different teacher each day, offers a unique opportunity for students to explore various approaches to Hatha Yoga. All levels.

 

Open Shala for Meditation*

A space for silence and reflection in our intimate screened Shala.

 

Intermediate Vinyasa

An intentional flow class aimed to create and preserve wellness of the body and mind. In this class you will work on alignment, balance and muscle control. This class is fun, playful and includes inversions and arm balances. One year Yoga experience is recommended. Level 2-3.

 

Restorative Yoga/Meditation/Breathwork

A practice that soothes and seduces your nervous system into an organic receptivity as well as pleasurable release.  This process opens space for multidimensional healing and peace of mind. Props are used to support your body in this subtle and profound practice. Touch quiet, the natural sound of your spiritual heart. All levels.

 

Breathwork

A profound tool for transformation and healing on all levels–body, mind & spirit. It uses the ancient practice of circular, connected breathing. Breathwork is one of the purest and most effective techniques to release stress and tension, heal and resolve trauma, and awaken you to your true Being. All levels.

 

Aerial Yoga

Aerial Yoga provides a fun and challenging workout that allows you to stretch and strengthen without overstressing your joints or compressing your vertebrae. The key to Aerial Yoga is the hammock, a swath of silky fabric that acts as your support system. Using the hammock, you invert and hang suspended in the air. Some health restrictions might apply. All levels.  (Please sign up in advance at the HC.)

 

Vinyasa Flow/Evening Flow

An intentional flow class aimed to create and preserve wellness of the body and mind. In this class you will work on alignment, balance and muscle control. This class is fun, playful and includes inversions and arm balances. One year Yoga experience is recommended. Level 2.

 

Core Restore

A unique practice designed to activate and integrate your core physically and emotionally. First strengthen your center with targeted exercises, then drop into restorative poses to balance the belly and brain. Based on cutting edge science. All levels.

 

Alignment Based Vinyasa

This class blends the Ashtanga and Iyengar traditions of yoga asana – embracing flow as well as stillness. We will practice moving mindfully through yoga poses with a focus on alignment, moving safely and intelligently and going inward. This will be a vigorous practice that will increase your strength, stamina and flexibility, with many opportunities given to challenge yourself as well as modify as needed. Level 2.

 

Body Rolling**

Inspired from the teachings of: Body Rolling by Yamuna Zake, The M.E.L.T. method by Sue Hitzmann, The Roll Model by Jill Miller, and their mentors, as well the eastern healing art of QiGong blended into one eclectic mix. Led by Roland Aber, certified massage therapist, yogi, and dancer. Limit 6 students. First come first served. All levels.

 

Open Heart/Open Hips

Using the breath to facilitate deep stretches, strong standing heart openers, simple inversions, and profound hip releases, you create an opportunity for deep energetic and emotional release.  We work to untie the knots that have been created in our animal bodies with the hope of feeling more energized and happy! All levels.

 

Self Awakening Yoga

This unique experience is designed to awaken awareness towards the self and help the student to re-align body, mind and spirit in an almost effortless way. Gentle movement sequences in combination with mindful breathing invite the student to evolve a new connection with thoughts, feeling and emotions. All levels.

 

Yoga para la ComUNIDAD

For the love of practice! This class, taught in Spanish by local Costa Rican teachers, offers a unique opportunity for students to explore various styles of Hatha Yoga. Complimentary. All levels.

 

Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra is the slow introduction of a meditative or lucid dreaming state through guided instruction. A simple and graceful practice to reduce anxiety and connect to the present moment. All levels.

 

Moon Salutations

Take your linear vinyasa practice sideways on the mat with Moon Salutations, known in Sanskrit as Chandra Namaskara. This practice is grounding and opening.  A minimum of basic yoga experience is suggested. Level 1-2.
