Heidi Pascual Yoga Retreat / July 24th to 30th, 2022

Costa Rica is one the most beautiful and biodiverse countries on the planet, an ecological gem of tropical rainforests, rolling green hills and pristine beaches. Costa Rican culture is defined as Pura Vida, Pure Life, where the beauty and power of nature is the temple and sunlight is the soul.

Pranamar Villas offers a barefoot luxury boutique experience on the beautiful beach of Playa Hermosa, Santa Teresa. Stunning white sand beaches, lush vegetation, tropical forest and spectacular sunsets make an unforgettable setting for your retreat experience.

Pranamar Villas has been ecologically constructed with tropical simplicity in harmony with the beauty of nature. The villas are Balinese inspired architecture, built from bamboo, hardwood and stone. The buildings surround a river-lagoon theme pool, tropical gardens and beautiful beach.

The elegantly designed villas offer stunning nature and ocean views. Each villa has two air-conditioned bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living space and terrace. Decorated with hand-crafted Indonesian furniture, the villas inspire a naturally relaxed atmosphere. Luxurious granite stone tubs surrounded by tropical gardens give a unique, exotic touch to the open-air bathrooms.

On waking up in this stunning location, we will do a blissful sunrise sadhana in the Balinese Yoga Shala, surrounded by tropical gardens. Moving through beautiful sequencing and creative namaskars, we will explore Mythical Vinyasa Flow and inspired Dharma Yoga. These soulful practices create a sense of lightness and radiance, leaving you feeling lovingly uplifted and alive. In the afternoons, we will surrender to a restorative Yin Yoga practice, allowing your being to rest, renew and rejuvenate.

Pranamar’s restaurant has beautiful high bamboo ceilings, an exotic, relaxed atmosphere and serene views over the lagoon pool and gardens. The food is delicious, nutritious, creative and lovingly prepared to nourish the body and enliven the senses.

In your free time, relax by the pool, in the tropical gardens or walk along the white sand, banana-palm lined beach. You may wish to indulge in a luxurious massage. The Spa is set in blissful surroundings and offers a range of massage treatments. It is a sanctuary for total body relaxation and renewal.

Pranamar offers a wide variety of tours and activities.

Santa Teresa is blessed with some of Costa Rica’s best surf spots and enjoys ocean swells year-round. You can experience high quality surf instruction and SUP paddle boarding. You can also visit beautiful Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve and Montezuma Waterfalls.

We will close each day together watching the stunning sun set into the Pacific Ocean, sharing gratitude for the Pura Vida of life.

We are blessed to retreat together in the pure beauty and power of nature in Costa Rica!

My yoga journey began in 2009 and since that time, my soul journey has been beautifully transformed. I have a successful full-time career, sharing Vinyasa Flow, Dharma Yoga and Yin Yoga classes, workshops, festivals, worldwide retreats and yoga community. My yoga journey expanded spontaneously and rapidly, unfolding with many enriching experiences, colourful travels, beautiful friendships and soul growth.

My twenties were dedicated to exploring our exquisite world in the wild of Africa, the wonder of South America, the exotica of Asia and Indonesia, the colour and culture of India, Sri Lanka and the Himalaya of Nepal. Experiencing the beauty of our world from sunrise to sunset, I fell head over heels, enamoured with life. I married my Peruvian husband in the Andes of Peru and returned home after a decade of discovery. I found life distant and disconnected on my return to the U.K, as if the world had lost its colour. It was then that I discovered yoga. My thirties and forties have been a very different kind of journey, an inner journey. The path of yoga lights the way to our inner world: an ocean without depths, bliss beyond beauty, an expanse without horizon and love’s forever open arms.

As a writer and teacher of Literature, I am innately inspired by language, nature and art; therefore creative narrative, classical yoga texts and mythic story infuse my choreography. These creative qualities are woven within precise alignment of classical asana. Flowing transitions between dynamic and static asana, guided by the tala of the breath, creates a graceful dance of breath and movement, stillness and serenity. I design each class with a balance of alignment, yoga assists, form and flow; pranayama, Indian philosophy and meditation.

Tapas has burned brightly and I have completed over a thousand hours of training: Triyoga teacher training, London (390 hours); Vinyasa Flow Yoga teacher training with Claire Missingham (200 hours); advanced Rasa Yoga teacher training with Sianna Sherman, Berlin (300 hour); advanced Life of a Yogi Teacher Training with Sri Dharma Mittra, New York City (500 hours); advanced teacher training with Ambra Vallo, London (100 hours); Yin Yoga with Sarah Lo (40 hours). My extensive travel across India enriched my studies with authentic insight into the history, tradition and practice of yoga.

I have been fortunate in working with world renowned international tutors including Claire MissinghamSianna ShermanAmbra ValloJeff Phenix and Sri Dharma Mittra, who have instilled authenticity and inspiration into my practice and teaching.

I hold the E-RYT 500 designation from Yoga Alliance and Excellence in Yoga Teacher Training Awards. I offer authentic, creatively inspired Vinyasa Flow, Dharma Yoga and Yin Yoga classes and workshops, exploring philosophy sadhana, infused with Indian culture and tradition, live music and sound experience.

I share Vinyasa Flow Yoga Retreats in the UK, India, Sri Lanka, Bali, Costa Rica, Peru and worldwide. I offer an authentic retreat experience; infusing blissful yoga in abundantly beautiful nature. In addition, I work for Sardinia Yoga in Italy, Spain and Croatia.

My love for uplifting hearts and souls through the sacred sadhana and sangha of yoga inspired me to offer a Yoga Teacher Training. This authentic, inspirational yoga journey aligns with the heart of yoga and empowers you to follow your own heart’s calling.
