For me, yoga started as a supplement to strengthen other activities - swimming in high school, rowing in college, and distance running as an adult. Yoga became my primary practice when I became pregnant and couldn't run as much as I had anticipated. After the birth of my son, Dario, yoga was there for me during my transition into motherhood. This is where I began to appreciate all that I could accomplish and enjoy through yoga.
Yoga was, and continues to be, my oasis away from the constant needs of being a mother, a wife, other people's something. And because of yoga, and my dedication to my (almost) daily practice, I am a better mom, wife, other people's something. When I am my best self, I am better to others. Often people forget to take care of themselves and then just out of blue, on a random day where maybe nothing out of the ordinary happened, they look around and ask themselves, "Where did I go?"
When not doing yoga or teaching yoga you'll find me running around with my boys, drinking coffee, listening to a good thriller, eating tacos, going for a walk on the beach, swimming in the ocean on hot sunny days, looking up on dark, starry nights.
Spend time with you again, come back to your breath; your body and soul welcome you back with love and compassion.
Sirena Serena Boutique Hotel and Retreat is a charming, boutique hotel offering stylish accommodations in Playa Tamarindo. Situated in a luxurious tropical garden beneath palm and banana trees, you will be surrounded by nature, but still at a short walking distance to everything in town. This is the ultimate getaway. There is a pool with a waterslide and a rancho where there is ample seating to eat, read a book, take a nap… whatever your heart desires.
Breakfast, lunch, and dinner is included in the retreat. There will be an opportunity to eat out if you want to, but once you taste our delectable creations you won’t want to.
Breakfast is a typical Costa Rican breakfast with eggs, rice, beans and cheese.
Lunch will be an amazing vegan lunchbox from Vegan Tamarindo.
Dinner is plated and sometimes too beautiful to eat - until you try a bite and then its gone before you remember to take a photo for Instagram.
