Join Yoga instructors, Shayna Frankel & Carol Collins for an adventure in the gorgeous mountains of Costa Rica.
Spend six days immersed in the magic and charm of Costa Rica, and the beauty, tranquility and uniqueness that comes with a visit to El Sabanero Eco Lodge. Often times we go on vacation and return home tired and tanned. However, a yoga retreat vacation is a chance to take time off to return renewed, enthusiastic, and full of energy. Furthermore, a daily Yoga practice will allow you to build a healthy habit with Yoga that you can bring back home with you.
Shayna, a Maryland native, has been teaching in DC since 2014.
She completed her 200-hr RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher) training at Tranquil Space Yoga Studio in 2014 and her 500-hr RYT training in 2017. She currently teaches many varieties of Vinyasa yoga for adults and children, catering each class to meet the needs of her students. She aims to create a welcoming and friendly space where students can be comfortable exploring their own edge without self-judgment. Shayna loves crafting creative playlists that can help guide her students through each moment of class from centering the mind to finding bliss in Savasana.
Carol loves helping people learn about their bodies and themselves through yoga.
She focuses on mindfulness, encouraging students to reach within themselves, to slow down and find their grounding. In her classes, she facilitates a calming flow balancing strength and flexibility and explores the science of yoga alignment. Her music is a combination of kirtan and new age calming music with a sprinkle of folksie, jazzy and funky lyrical music. Carol founded the Baby and Me Yoga Classes at Tranquil Space Yoga Studio and offers Teaching Training for fitness instructors in postpartum issues. She has been teaching since 2002 and has E-RYT 500 certification with Yoga Alliance. Carol also holds a master's degree in education and is a former elementary and middle school teacher.

"Most rejuvenating experience of my life!! Shayna is an ingenious yoga instructor who provided us with the most exhilarating yoga practices I’ve ever encountered! We did aqua yoga, partner yoga, yoga under the stars, sunset yoga, sunrise yoga, yoga on the beach, restorative yoga, and a variety of vinyasa flows! What a magical retreat with unforgettable memories!!"

"Shayna’s retreat was everything I expected and more. She created a comfortable and warm environment for all retreat attendees and was very attentive of everyone’s needs. Her classes are welcoming to all yoga levels and she is always happy to incorporate any special requests into her class. Shayna is fun and understanding and she was there to help me take my practice a step further. Joining Shayna in Costa Rica allowed me to escape my everyday schedule and learn how to find happiness in the present moment, an ability I have been able to translate back in to my city life. Lastly, Shayna went out her way to make my birthday a very special and unforgettable one. Thank you Shayna!"
