Leave the routine of your daily life and come home. Come home to what you already know. Erin Sampson with Five Parks Yoga is the online yoga home for yoga students from over 200 countries and now you have an opportunity to practice in person with Erin in one of the most stunning locations in Costa Rica.

Each day Erin will guide you through an active and invigorating yoga practice in the morning, and a nurturing and restorative yoga practice in the evening. Each yoga class will be unique and intentionally connected to the theme of our retreat. All classes are All-Level and inclusive. Erin will film a few of her classes during the retreat for her YouTube channel so you’ll be a part of the Five Parks Yoga online experience! (don’t worry, you don’t have to be on camera!)

Our meditation and mindfulness practices will be led by Alyson. She will teach a variety of meditation and mindfulness techniques and practices, which will be in union with the style and theme of the yoga practices.

Your Journey Home

Oftentimes, the obligations and routines of our daily life challenge our ability to connect with our inner wisdom.

The practices of yoga, meditation, journal writing, and discussion, throughout the week will help guide us back to the place within each one of us which is our home base.

Our intention is to provide an opportunity to find the tranquil space within via the practices of yoga, meditation and mindfulness. During our twice daily scheduled time together we will weave these practices together, so that the physical practice of yoga may become the metaphor for the inner journey home.

Transportation Information

Airfare and Ground Transportation

Air Transportation:
You’ve picked a great time to travel to Costa Rica because the airfare rates are the lowest we’ve seen in years. Book your travel into the Liberia Airport (Code: LIR) – this is a modern airport that services many major airlines. Be sure to check Southwest (United States) for amazing fares. Most airlines will arrive mid-day and depart around 1-3 pm.

Ground Transportation:
You will need to take a shuttle from the Liberia Airport to the Costa Rica Yoga Spa (approx 2.5 hours). We can help arrange shared shuttle service or private group service if you would like assistance. For shared service, the Costa Rica Yoga Spa recommends CR Terratour (TerraTourNosara.com) but you are welcome to use any service you would prefer.

Arrival, Departure & Check-In Info:
Most planes arrive in Liberia between 11am and 2 pm and it takes approx 2.5 hours to travel to Nosara from the airport. Check in on the 11th will be between 2pm and 8pm. We will have an evening class on the 11th to welcome you to Nosara. On the 17th we will have a morning practice available to students who are able to attend (depending on your departure time back to the Liberia) and checkout will be completed by 11 am. Let us know if you have any questions about the schedule!

Journey Home

During your retreat you will be offered the silence, space and beauty to slow down, tune in, connect and journey home to the wisdom necessary to do your life’s work. Yoga is used as the organic metaphor for life experiences. Away from the busyness and routines, a new rhythm arises; A rhythm woven with movement, nurturing and deep connection. Challenge, feel and connect to the wisdom always available and already within you. Daily practices of mindfulness, meditation and journaling will be easily incorporated beyond the retreat environment. Take home with you the ability to connect amidst the storm of life’s challenges and beauty.

Erin – Yoga Instructor – E-RYT

Five Parks Yoga

Erin received her 200-hour teaching certification in 2008 in Arvada, Colorado. For the next several years, she taught classes at her neighborhood studio.

In December of 2011, she and her husband moved their family of five to Tamarindo, Costa Rica for six months. They fell in love with Costa Rica and decided to split their time between Colorado and Costa Rica. Upon her first return to Colorado, she opened her own studio, Five Parks Yoga, which allowed her to teach in both Colorado and Costa Rica.

In an effort to bridge the gap between Colorado and Costa Rica, in February of 2015, Erin and her husband Matt started filming her yoga classes and posting them on YouTube, so that her students could practice with her when she wasn’t in town, (either town!). Since that time, she has posted over 200+ classes and now has 50,000 subscribers and students from 209 different countries. While her original intention was to simply share her classes with her students at her two homes, the unexpected result of her YouTube channel has given her an opportunity to connect with students from all over the world. Visit Erin online at: https://www.youtube.com/c/FiveParksYoga

Erin’s other passion project began in 2013 when she and Alyson founded Warrior Girls Yoga – yoga workshops and camps for middle school and high school aged girls. ( http://warriorgirlsyoga.com/ )The program has been an amazing part of her passion for sharing yoga in a full hearted and meaningful way. Alyson and Erin have a unique ability to work together to seamlessly integrate the life changing practices of meditation, mindfulness and yoga and have since chosen to work together beyond the Warrior Girls program.

Erin strives to share her love for self-discovery through the practices of mindfulness, meditation, and yoga, in partnership with Alyson during this retreat.

Alyson – Meditation & Mindfulness

Authentically You Workshops

Alyson Jiron has worked with families and children in numerous settings and capacities (Counselor, Teacher, Parent Coach, Victim Advocate, Trainer) for over 20 years. She has a Masters degree from Naropa University in Transpersonal Counseling Psychology and currently has a private therapy practice in Broomfield, CO.

Our day to day lives are full of unpredictability, joys and sorrows, errands, deadlines and overwhelming to do lists.  We cannot escape these experiences. It is part of what makes us alive and also why so many of us lose ourselves along the way. The mindfulness component of this retreat will offer opportunities to learn and/or deepen meditation and will include other practices which will support us in accepting the entirety of our experiences.  Participants will learn to turn toward (rather than resist) the challenges of life and to work with emotions and the constant thinking of the mind.  The beauty and ease of a retreat environment provides spaciousness and a perfect opportunity to relax and find peace. Alyson aims to bring an understanding and ease to the experience, so that even when the retreat is over, the awareness and connection to these practices remains with you.

Alyson – MA – of Authentically You Counseling

Matt – Photography & Videography

Matt has been living part time in Costa Rica with his family for the past seven years. Matt is a professional photographer and videographer and will capture the retreat in photos as well as video.
