Yoga Retreat in Costa Rica - March 8th-14th, 2020
Treat yourself to a tropical yoga retreat in paradise that will be

The 3 Pillars come from ancient wisdom that offers practical solutions to antidote the stress of modern living. It is based on these foundational healthy principles: Eat right, Think right, & Move right.
For the Move right and Think right portions, Sonja will be teaching 2 yoga classes a day. Morning classes will be all level vinyasa Flows. Before dinner classes may include restorative and hatha yoga. During these classes will be some instruction in meditation or mindfulness practices.
For the Eat Right portion, along with the spectacular cuisine at the facility, Dr. Mark Smith will give an informative lecture on Wednesday night on how to eat for optimal gut and brain health.
Between classes will be plenty of time to hit the beach, hike, swim, nap, or explore this bit of paradise. This retreat is a take home, life-changing experience!
Sonja Stoeckli - Retreat leader
Born in Switzerland, Sonja was introduced to yoga nearly 43 years ago on a visit to England. Inspired, she found a deeper awareness for life and started her own yoga practice several years later. A student of many inspirational teachers who instilled in her the love of different aspects of yoga, she experienced a deeper compassion a belief in herself for the first time in her life. She found a doorway to her soul that opened the love and strength in her body to become an inspirational teacher herself.
In her vinyasa flow classes Sonja’s intention is to both challenge and guide her students, encouraging flexibility, strength, and alignment in their bodies and in all aspects of their yoga practice. Her goal is to support her students on their own journeys towards peace, acceptance, compassion, contentment and a deeper awareness, connecting body, mind, and spirit.
I had been out of my yoga practice for several years, just not able to find a place I was comfortable with. What a lucky day when I first tried out Spiritual Flow Yoga! The staff and members are warm and welcoming, yoga at all levels is well supported. After just a few months I’m already practicing at my highest level yet. The instructors are well trained and lead each session with enthusiasm and warmth. I particularly like the focus on correct pose positions and how to ensure you are getting the most out of your mat time. In addition to Yoga practice, Sonja offers many different services – meditation, nutrition, special guest (we just had an acupuncture session). It is well worth everyone’s time to visit Spiritual Flow you won’t be disappointed.
Spiritual Flow is a friendly welcoming Yoga Studio. It is a beautiful light and bright space, which is often decorated with lovely fresh flowers. It’s both relaxing and rejuvenating to spend time taking classes at Spiritual Flow Yoga.
I thoroughly enjoy the classes, which are varied and interesting, focusing on asanas, the breath and meditation. Two teachers I’ve taken classes with regularly are Mindy and Jessica.
Sonja is enthusiastic and energetic however at the same time caring and considerate. The atmosphere she provides at Spiritual Flow Yoga Studio is unlike any other, her yoga lessons are serious business and her approach is very goal-oriented however, this doesn’t stop her from having fun — always smiling, cracking jokes, and up for good conversation.
I’m a frequent gym-goer (which is actually where I met Sonja), and her lessons are of great intensity and satisfy my routine. Whether I’m looking to de-stress and relax, or looking for a challenge, Sonja knows how to teach an effective workout that achieves great results.

I began taking Restorative Yoga with Christina last February. Initially, I began taking the class to address a lower back issue, but what I hadn't expected was that, not only would Restorative Yoga help me restore my lower back, but, more importantly, it would help me begin to restore my mind as well. Specifically, it's been a great help to me to "quiet" my mind in everyday situations.
