2021 Costa Rica Yoga Retreat - Joanna Dunn Yoga

Renewal Retreat: Yoga, Meditation and Feldenkrais from the perspective of neuroplasticity, healing and healthy aging

Join Debra Lerman, licensed physical therapist and guild certified Feldenkrais Practitioner, and Joanna Dunn, 500 Hour Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher and Teacher Trainer for a week-long retreat in Costa Rica!

As we age, we get stuck in old patterns and habits of movement and thought, yet there is great potential for renewal through these combined practices. Feldenkrais Method gently and systematically reorganizes the nervous system and body for ease of movement. Meditation breaks old patterns of thought and emotion creating new neural pathways and building grey matter. Yoga soothes the nervous system and gives space for integration and healing. A week-long immersion in a quiet, beautiful and serene location allows a deeper integration and lasting change.

Tentative Daily Schedule – Everything is optional. Take the time to rest or go an adventure!

Each day will begin with sunrise meditation and practice of silent reflection. Students are invited to journal or take a morning walk on the beach.
Following a light breakfast, we will gather for our morning practice: either a Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement session with Debra or an all levels alignment-based yoga practice with Joanna. After our morning practice, we’ll break until lunch. A walk or further journaling and reflection is welcome.
After lunch, we’ll gather for lectures and discussion about neuroplasticity, meditation and more.
Prior to dinner, we’ll again gather for either a Feldenkrais Session or a Restorative/Gentle Yoga Session.
We’ll close our evenings with meditation.
Both Debra and Joanna are available for one-on-one private sessions during break time.

 All levels, ages and abilities are welcome. Participants under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult guardian.

About the instructor: Joanna Dunn

joanna-dunn

A yoga teacher since 2001, Joanna’s background is eclectic. She teaches a variety of styles, including beginner level alignment, a Level 2 slow paced Vinyasa, Yin and Restorative as well as somatic movement and meditation. Her teaching is influenced by Iyengar-based teachers, Judith Lasater (Restorative yoga), Kathryn Payne (Pranayama) and Theresa Elliott (alignment, sequencing, and Vinyasa). Her primary influences from her early studies also include choreographed multidimensional vinyasa of Lynn Kingston and the accessible, gentle yoga of Kripalu. Joanna is currently studying with Tias and Surya Little of Prajna Yoga. Prajna fuses traditional yoga practices (Ashtanga and Iyengar) with the energy body wisdom of yoga and Chinese Medicine, Meditation of Buddhism and somatic movement of Feldenkrais and Hanna.

 

 

 

Debra Lerman

 

I bring all that I know to my work: My early years as a dancer and massage therapist, 40+ years of experience with moving bodies of all shapes and ages, my 30 years as a physical therapist, and my 20 years of teaching the Feldenkrais work, in order to help people find comfort, ease, and power in simple human functions. How we use our bodies and ourselves is the physical picture of our level of well-being and potency. The organization or our skeleton and muscles are as individual as our height, the length and tonus of our muscles, and our history.
