Kai Earth Immersion "on site" in Costa Rica!!!



RELAX, RECHARGE AND ENERGIZE in this beautiful spa retreat setting. Pura Vida Spa and Resort is known for it's beauty , and is easily accessible ( great for single new travelers ....Pura Vida picks you up at the airport and returns you at end of the week.) It's your "Summer dance Camp" for adults! Time away, out in beautiful nature, in an exotic country with fun friends....practicing body love thru yoga, dancing and somatics via Kai.  

Kai is a dance based movement class that integrates body, mind, emotions and spirit. Daily workshops will go over 7 somatic principles ( including brain awareness, embodied anatomy, 21 moves, the elements, archetypes and more) that will bring you deeper into the earth of your body. A new added section on voice will be explored throughout including sounding exercises and basic chants led by Kelly Atkins. 

We will be in the mountain tops overlooking San Jose and the coffee bean fields. The resort is an oasis for the senses with hummingbirds of all colors flittering by, fireflies in the evening and cool temperatures to sleep with. Pure Vida looks out at a mountain range with "cloud forests" , volcanos, and trips you can take to natural springs, waterfalls, white water rafting, zip lining thru the tree tops and more. There is something for the adventure seekers and there is so much beauty and peace on property with walking trails and hidden alcoves to meditate and journal as well as pool/jacuzzi, many hammocks to nap in and a full spa of healthy treatments you can sign up for.  

It's a week of taking deeper care of your body/mind/emotions and spirit. The food is all prepared with local ingredients offering delicious buffets for each meal ( and fish and chicken options as well as smoothies, juices, teas, coffees, or for the indulgence of wine or beer for purchase. ) You can take as many or as few classes as you like, this is YOUR WEEK to set aside every day life, listening in deeper, and give to yourself exactly what you need. You will leave feeling re-freshed, re-newed and ready to create more goodness in the world. Some come as couples, some as singles ( you can choose either for your room) and we usually have a wide range of folks drawn from people who've never done Kai, to yogis, to people who fly in from different states. It's always an adventure and fun to make new connections also with others staying at the retreat center during the week.  

Kelly Atkins is an experienced dancer/choreographer/yoga teacher with over 30 years experience, and founder of Kai. She will facilitate all of the hot yoga and dance/movement classes . Kelly is known for her ability to create warm, welcoming and rich mind/body experiences and has led many group retreat experiences through the years. ( This is her 4th to Costa Rica) You don't need ANY EXPERIENCE in dance/Kai or yoga to enjoy this trip. It's your vacation, you can pick as many or as few classes as you like !
