Perri’s Annual Yoga & Fun in the Sun Costa Rica Retreat
Perri’s 2018 Costa Rica Retreat: April 6-12, 2018
For over 20 years, Perri has been sharing the wisdom and practices of yoga. Perri is an International Association of Yoga Therapist-certified yoga therapist, C-IAYT, and a Canadian Yoga Alliance Gold Registered Yoga Teacher. Perri has studied philosophy in general and Indian philosophy in particular for over 40 years.
Perri’s teachings focus on integrating principles of yoga, optimal conscious breathing, and awareness in all that you do, on and off the mat. Through the body, by way of the mind, you practice and discover how to live, here and now, in peace and joy. The practices of yoga guide you to experience what is already within, the source of your joy, your very essence.
As a spiritual guide, Perri’s medium is the practices of yoga postures, breathing, and meditation. She guides her students into discovering what they CAN do, where they are, in the present moment.
Each day you will have the opportunity to nourish your soul by starting and ending your day in the practice of silence which gives you the opportunity to stay tuned inwardly as you share in the wonders of the forests natural sounds.
The guided practices will be tailored to the setting and participants. Perri’s teachings allow for each person to find just the right way to benefit from any asana, pranayama, or meditation practice suggested.
Perri weaves the principles and wisdom into the practices so that each person can learn how to discover what feels just right for them. This retreat will be an educational experience as well as a practical journey through the body, by way of the mind to discover what makes your soul sing. This is the promise of the spiritual wisdom of yoga.
Participation in all guided practices are optional, however, the practice of silence is a group effort. Each class will be accessible to the beginner and advanced yogi alike. After all, any practice can be as simple or challenging as you make it. It’s all an inside job.

“I had a great experience at Perri’s retreat! The daily yoga classes and teachings in the magical atmosphere at Mystica were amazing and I really enjoyed the silent component of the retreat as well as the time spent as a group. It was so nice to be taught by Perri once again, reunite with classmates and meet new ones! I can’t wait for the next one!”
