Sometimes images are more powerful than words. And so I share a visual story of my holiday trip to Costa Rica. The written reflection of my experiences and the gifts I received and brought home with me, as well as the insights and moments of clarity I experienced, will come later. Still processing… Enjoy the pictures!
feliz navidad, playa guiones
chicas ride on horseback to a secret waterfall
so many fun insects in Costa Rica
and interesting mammals, like this “Pizote”
lots of time to play at the beach and what a beautiful backdrop for side plank (Vasisthasana)
“mommy, what does this say?” said the girl, as she stopped to look at my word in the sand
“5000 colones” – celebrating new year’s eve
celebrating the 1st day of 2012 on a canopy tour!
lots of internal recitations “breathe…trust…relax” on the first of many L O N G lines (13 total!)
new year’s sunset exhalation
my Costa Rican amigo, Herbe (Air-Bay)
celebrating a glorious sunrise with HANDSTAND
commemorating a tradition I started last year, I wrote intentions and affirmations in the sand
the most beautiful sunset of my ENTIRE life; it felt like God was speaking from the heavens, or it might have been Horton saying “hellooooh….”
rappelling down a 200 foot waterfall!
oh..my..goodness (actually, that was fun! not nearly as scary as it looked from the platform)
come on volcano, show yourself, I came all this way to see you!
laguna in the crater of a dormant volcano; no views today, instead I had to embrace the cloud forest
but I did get to see these copulating frogs
and I did capture a shot of this hummingbird!!
Costa Rica yoga family
…there’s no place like OM (for the holidays)
