    • NEW YEAR'S RETREATS 2017

    • CONNECTION

      A 5Rhythms, Yoga + Live Music New Year’s Retreat
      December 27, 2016 - January 2, 2017
      in Nosara, Costa Rica

    • Amber Ryan and Kevin Courtney invite you to join a roving global community for an epic week of connection at their second home - the magical Costa Rica Yoga Spa.

      This year is calling for a different kind of experience. In our time together we will unwind, refresh and explore the multiple dimensions of CONNECTION.

      We’ll go inward to pause and rediscover –with an impassioned heart-- the kind of life we want to create moving forward. We’ll invigorate our strength, sharpen our clarity and expand our vision while taking care to also connect outward to the shared experience of community and tribe.

      In ritual we will cross the threshold into 2017 with a sacred fire ceremony supported by the sounds of musician Serena Gabriel followed by a galvanizing DJ set by Amber Ryan. 

      CONNECTION is a time to boldly stake our claim - with intention and purpose - our path for the year ahead.

      THE PRACTICES:
      Yoga & Qi-gong
      5Rhythms®
      Sound Meditation
      Sitting Meditation
      Ceremony

      Supported by breathtaking views from the yoga deck, nourishing whole and superfoods, the warm waves of the pacific ocean, and onsite massage, revitalize your everything and move forward into 2017 with a totally fresh perspective. 

    • THE GOLDEN THREAD
      January 2 - 7, 2017

      The Golden Thread will bring together the complimentary practices of 5Rhythms & a fusion of Yoga and Qi Gong on the gorgeous yoga deck at The Costa Rica Yoga Spa.

      Join Kevin Courtney and Amber Ryan for five days of guided practice as we step into The Golden Thread and collectively seize the opportunity to enter the new year in an exhilarating way - connected, centered, nourished and inspired.

      What is the Golden Thread?
      The Golden Thread is an untapped resource which pulsates at the center of our center. A channel of energy running down along the body’s central axis that when penetrated by the light of awareness, becomes an irrefutable refuge. This sacred source of our creativity connects us to self and others, is both named and nameless and is experienced through deep listening, breath, and surrender. 

      Each day will consist of a 2-hour yoga practice with Kevin and a 2-hour movement session with Amber. We will each hold optional Q & A sessions throughout the week to answer specific queries about your practice. The rest of the week will be held for you to create your most ideal experience. Our invitation is for you to feel into the balance between practice and living the practice, then generate from there.

      Experience the Golden Thread.
      Come for the 5 days, or immerse yourself and join Amber, Kevin, & Tribe for a full 12 days of deep connection and surrender.

      The Golden Thread is for participants who have a solid foundation in both yoga and a conscious movement practice. (The New Year's Retreat would qualify you if you are inexperienced in one of the practices.)
