Guest Teacher Natalia Chaverri
Natalia is a Costa Rican passionate of different healing modalities. She has been involved in yoga, bodywork and healing Arts since the age of 16, when she recognized that this path touched her soul and awakened her desire of learning more about the beautiful mystery of life. She first studied for 4 years at the GAIA Holistic Institute in San Jose, Costa Rica to become a Holistic Balance Instructor; which involves several techniques including Holistic Massage, Reflexology, Deep Tissue, Reiki, Bio alimentation, Bio Creation and Holistic Hypnotherapy. At the same time she took a program at the same Institute to become a Yoga Teacher, specialized in Sufi Yoga, Hatha Yoga, Yoga Assisted Stretching, Gaia Yoga; Sound Healing Vibrations and Meditation. A few years later, she did a 300 hour Yoga Teacher Training of Hatha Yoga in San José and then another 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training of Anusara Yoga with International teachers.
In 2005 she started to explore Aquatic Bodywork where she found one of her favourite and profound passions, and then in 2011 became a Watsu and Aquadinamic Instructor. Since then she has been providing Watsu trainings, and has organized different Water Healing workshops around the world. This year she is organizing the First International Congress of Aquatic Therapies in Costa Rica.
In 2006 and 2012 she travelled to Thailand to learn Thai Massage and abdominal Massage (Chi Nei Tsang). Beside the holistic vision, as a complementary tool, Natalia studied Physiotherapy at Santa Paula’s College in San Jose, funded Alternative Physical Therapy in Costa Rica and Watsu Costa Rica. Every year she travels to different parts of the world to keep learning other healing modalities and share her beautiful work. Last year she spent 6 months in Bali, Indonesia with her husband Simon.
Life is a beautiful journey and each second counts. Every time we are on our Yoga mat, we have the choice to connect to the source of healing energy, which makes us feel inspired, content and fully connected to our true nature. When we feel our bodies, mind and souls connected to the fountain of wellness, we feel empowered to achieve the life of our dreams.
My intention in each yoga class is to help you find those ways of connection, where the inner light shines and we feel complete. Body, mind and soul feel at home. Choosing different yoga styles like Hatha Yoga with active and creative movements, Gaia Yoga with conscious healing sounds, Restorative Yoga to rest deeply and restore each cell of the body, Therapeutic Yoga following the principles of alignment of Anusara Yoga, different ways of active and passive Meditation and Intelligent Movement, we will have a lot of fun awakening our own consciousness and the consciousness of the planet!
Tantsuyoga Workshop (Watsu on land)
10 hours $225
Tansu is energy work that is based on the principle of Zen Shiatsu, being not doing, It’s an incredible opportunity to connect with that space within ourselves where healing occurs.
Tantsuyoga will make you feel like a baby again by creating an unbelievable sensation of wellbeing and that all is well. Bringing Watsu’s movement (practiced in water) onto land and together diving into the Ocean within.
The containment and the oceanic movement that you will experience on land while holding someone will make you feel subtle, receptive, and will help you accomplish a state of emptiness and grace in your body, mind and soul.
We will work as couples and triads, holding, supporting and playing with one another. Yoga means Union, let the Tantsu energy embrace you and guide you through a state of complete and deep relaxation.
