We scheduled a 90 minute yoga session with Cyn on the beach during our family vacation for myself and two daughters ages 14 and 27. She met us at a little restaurant on Manual Antonio beach and then we walked down to a perfect quiet and shady area underneath almond trees. The sun was filtering through and there was a gentle breeze, we could see the beautiful view of the ocean and smell the salt air. It was magical!
Cyn brought us through a wonderful yoga session, providing opportunity for my oldest more experienced daughter to push her stretch further, and also for me to go a little slower. She used essential oils to make the experience even better. We loved her "happiness in a bottle" spray, which was a mix of orange essence and lavender essential oils. I even bought some when I got home and use it each morning to go back to this amazing experience! She also used a gong and provides lots of positive when words for us to clear negative energies and bring in the positive!
I literally felt like something was lifted from me after this session and it still feels this way even two months later. I will always be thankful for our experience with Cyn on that beautiful beach in Manual Antonio. Hope to go back soon!!

What I needed on my revitalizing trip to Costa Rica
My boyfriend and I decided to take a yoga class together while visiting Costa Rica and stumbled upon reviews about Cyn. Needless to say, she was amazing! It was David's first time (EVER!) taking yoga, and I have been practicing since I was a young girl, and somehow Cyn was able to balance a class to satisfy both of us. She even assisted us both with inversions!
The savasana may have been both of our favorite parts- isn't it always?! This was unlike any corpse pose I have done before, though. The sound of the ocean so near, the breeze through the trees above our my head, her essential oils and meditative music, made the experience truly magical!
In addition to a wonderful class, Cyn was a very welcoming and kind person. We were late for our class, and she waited for us for a bit of time when she could have just left. She was "no judgment" and knowledgeable in her practice. She emulates the Costa Rican "pura vida" lifestyle, and I am anxiously awaiting an opportunity to be able to go back.
This was a wonderful experience! At one point while sitting cross legged, I looked past Cyn and saw a man riding horses down the beach and thought - I am so grateful for whatever I did or path I chose to lead me to this moment. practising yoga on a shady, quiet corner of the beach is one of the most incredible experiences I have ever had. The sound of the oceans, the birds, the breeze - so healing.
Cyn was amazing and created a yoga routine for my boyfriend and I, on the spot, that was easy enough for his first yoga lesson, and challenging enough for my beg/intermediate level. Cyn was a bilingual pro and led our yoga session in both Spanish and English. As well, she uses essential oils and incense to enhance the relaxation elements of the practise. I highly recommend!
