Returning to Sansara Resort in beautiful Panama for 2018!  Join experienced teachers Dan Hines and Marcia Wilson for this themed Courage & Renewal and yoga experience in sunny Panama. We will play and learn at Sansara Surf and Yoga Resort in lovely Cambutal.

The theme guiding this exploration is Wayfinding.

Wayfinding is the traditional art of navigating the open ocean. Sansara offers a beachfront location and graceful thatched roof studio facing the Pacific Ocean: waters where ancient navigation practices are being rediscovered among the Pacific Islands.

Through practices that will include the Circles of Trust© Approach, daily yoga, journal writing, mindfulness, and large and small group work, we will be attentive to our bodies, listen to our hearts and minds, and invite our personal narratives to speak to us. The stories and images of wayfinding will guide us as we navigate the complex journey of a human life.

*More detailed information including travel dates and other options are provided on the registration page.

Marcia Wilson: I come to the yoga world with a passionate belief in living a life that connects and inspires. This philosophy fuels my life both on and off the yoga mat. I’m a mom, a lifelong learner and a deeply passionate and open being. My life explorations have included studies in occupational therapy and biochemistry, long self propelled journeys by bike and foot in mountains and on remote roads, and testing my edge in triathlons of all distances including Ironman. My yoga journey has included exploration of Anusara, Ashtanga, and Bikram yoga. I have been teaching children and adults since 2010 and opened a studio in downtown Kamloops- the Yoga Loft-  in 2012.  Creating and connecting are my passions.
