The value of what I want to share in this workshop is undeniable to me as I have been practicing most of these techniques for over 30 years and what it has done for my body, mind and spirit is a gift that gives me great joy to share as some of you who know me can testify. All of the proceeds will go to make it possible for a local Tico family to have a safe home by the time the rainy season sets in after having lost all of their possessions in last's seasons floods. To those of you who are willing and able to donate more before or after the workshop, your support will be most appreciated.

One of the most fundamental tools we are endowed with to create harmony and balance is breath. It is the first thing and last thing we do in life.

This day long intensive will reveal to you the profound influence our breath has on our lives and how changing the way we breathe profoundly impacts our physical and psychic health.

You will learn:

  • The destructive and beneficial effects of different kinds of breathing

  • Specific ways to breathe to manage and eventually be free of anxiety and depression

  • Breathing techniques for healing respiratory disorders and their effects on your physical and emotional health

  • Breathing techniques for maximizing athletic performance

  • How to use breath to facilitate and deepen your meditation practice

  • Powerful breathing techniques that boost your immune system and your vitality


Previous experience in pranayama and meditation is helpful but not essential.

Testimonials from Previous Retreats

“I so enjoyed the retreat. Daryl Vansier guided us so beautifully. He has the energy of such a strong, yet gentle, leader. Such a great model for us. As a teacher, each of Daryl’s interventions was so valuable, pertinent and appreciated. What a privilege it was to be there with him and all those dear souls and that beautiful setting.”
