Guest Teacher Lindsay Dann
Lindsay Dann’s yogic path led her to Anamaya for a yoga retreat in 2014 when she fell deeply in love with the retreat center, yoga, beauty and nature of Montezuma. After returning home from a magical week at Anamaya, she decided to pursue yoga and meditation in Costa Rica. Her time here influenced her teaching style in a slow down and feel it all kind of way. Central America boasted many adventures like traveling by bus from Panama to Belize, indulging in the Central American culture and finding herself through a new lens of freedom and understanding. She wants to share her experience and love for this magical place with you all, 5 years later!
Lindsay received her first 200 hour teaching certificate downtown Montezuma, at Deveya Yoga Studio and since lives in Jackson Hole, WY. Counting her blessings, Lindsay, found a strong, healthy, mindful yoga community amongst the Teton mountain range (Jackson Hole, WY) where she now teaches yoga and enjoys the outdoors. She has completed many hours of training in Yoga therapy, Kundalini yoga, Shiva Rae’s Lunar Arts yoga, Chakra Restorative and most recently Sculpt Yoga.
Lindsay’s classes focus on a body-mind connection within deep yet simple meditations, pranayama and movement. Breath is the number one source to the asana in all of her sequences and in turn she urges students to slow down and sink into the pose. Her style is accessible and practical for all ranges of students as she cues from a Hatha structural alignment perspective while still allowing each student to be organic. Guiding each pose from the ground up she loves to provide hands on assists and verbal tips that are specific to the students needs.
Cleansing and detoxing the body’s organs and aiding in improved heart function, cardiovascular health, less stress and more relaxation guides all Lindsay’s classes. She gets excited about teaching students the benefits that are happening on the inside of the body and the importance of moving away from the exterior idea of yoga. Lindsay hopes all students come to the mat with an open mind but more importantly open heart. She fosters close relationships with students and believes people need acceptance, awareness and a way to let go of what is no longer serving them physically, emotionally and mentally.
What to Expect
The morning classes for this retreat will follow the heat of the sun with a solar vinyassa flow, infused with soothing movement to build heat yet more importantly nurture the muscles, joints and connective tissue. She will guide the alignment of your body as you practice linking and integrating breath with each posture in longer holds to build strength, endurance and flexibility. The evening will be mellow and restorative with a lunar practice to foster ease in the mind and body. Using props and supports this will be a tonic for the nervous system and a healing space to soften from the day before sleep.
Live Music with Isaac Dann
Professional musician, Isaac Dann who is Lindsay’s talented husband will be joining in on the retreat. He is honored to add live acoustic guitar and vocals to add another element to the retreat. Isaac creates improvisational music that provides space for the environment to create the music and the music to create the environment. Lindsay and Isaac have taught live music retreats locally and internationally and are excited to collaborate in the heart of the jungle.
