A new addition to Bahia is Yoga Maya Uvita

A new addition to Bahia is Yoga Maya Uvita!

Author: J.S.P.

At an incredible location, close to the Whale Tail, owner Debbie Krejci offers a stunning space for Yoga Teacher Training (YTT), yoga practice, and retreats. 

Stemming from Ohio in the U.S., Debbie acquired her yoga training in Mexico (200) and Florida (300), E-RYT 500 status, Personal Training certification, and Pilates Mat One. Formerly a paramedic and firefighter/inspector, Debbie became interested in yoga as it was similar to the physical therapy she went through due to an injury with the fire department. Having pushed herself hard with marathon running and intensive workplaces, she found a teacher that made yoga fun and has gone on to teach in Mexico, Greece, Sri Lanka, and now Costa Rica.

She saw the growth potential in the Uvita area and was drawn to the beach, mountains, wildlife, and Pura Vida lifestyle. The easy access to local waterfalls, including Nauyaca, and the Whale Tale beach make it an ideal location for some Namaste!

Yoga Maya Uvita offers all the props (mats, straps, blocks) for all levels and will soon be offering Intro classes, for those new to yoga, in addition to the already available Yin, Vinyasa (with modifications given).  Yoga Teacher Training and High- Intensity Interval classes will also be scheduled.

Debbie is currently working on writing an Anatomy book that includes coloring pages specific to yogis.

Former Y.T.T.s have also included Gong/Sound baths, Cacao ceremonies, horseback riding, and a Medicinal Plant tour. There are bikes and surfboards available!

The grounds provide gardens for clients to have access to the Edible and Medicinal established plants of maracuya, mango, and mamones, with vanilla, turmeric/ginger, bananas/plantains, and ylang-ylang being added.

This stunning venue offers a large yoga shala with a teak floor that is easier on the body, alongside a separate area that can be used for dining, classrooms, and meetings. There are housing options for every budget, and many restaurants and shops are within walking distance. Yoga classes are currently being offered Monday through Friday. (R.S.V.P. necessary!)

We are achieving great opening numbers (more than 14,000 in the English versión alone), have breached the borders of Costa Rica, and are read by North Americans and Europeans, and surprisingly, many of my German patriots.

Everyone Has A Story

Everyone Has A Story – In 2012, one of my yoga students invited me to join her for an upcoming retreat she had planned. She was in a difficult position because her “Exercise Person” couldn’t join her, and she wanted me to go to complete her team. I asked her when and where this retreat would be happening. She replied, “Next week, in Costa Rica.”

SURF SEASON ON THE BALLENA COAST

SURF SEASON ON THE BALLENA COAST

Much like our summer and winter seasons change, the seasons of big surf also changes. The summer months of hot sunny days are gone for now, and a more wet, stormy, and cooler season brings more gifts. Many refer to this wet season as “the green season.” As a surfer, I refer to it as “ the surf season.”

RAFAEL STEYNERS HAS THE RHYTHM IN HIS BLOOD!

RAFAEL STEYNERS HAS THE RHYTHM IN HIS BLOOD!

Rafael Steyners was born in the land of the famous “Guajira Guantanamera”, in the picturesque valley of the city of Guantánamo, located in the Province of Guantánamo south of the Caimán Dormido, the beautiful island of Cuba.
At the age of three, Rafael danced and sang to the sound of a portable radio. His mother smiled when she saw him but she never gave it much importance, since another plan was in the works since then. She would rather see him become a doctor than an artist from stage to stage.
