Yoga in the Caribbean: Bocas del Toro will host Aerial Yoga and Ashtanga Yoga Workshops

Ana Prada from Colombia and Mariela Cruz from Costa Rica will make their way to Panama’s Caribbean destination of Isla Colon, Bocas del Toro. Both workshops will take place at the over-the-sea studio in Bocas Town, Isla Colon, Bocas del Toro: Genesis Creativity House.


Genesis is a beautiful outdoor studio with wooden floors and a oriental style decorations with incredible sights of the Caribbean sea and Bocas islands. Genesis is located only steps away from most hotels in Bocas Town.



Starting Feb 21st 2014 Ana Prada from Colombia will be offering Vayu Aerial Yoga workshop. This unique form of yoga will leave you meditating and floating at the same time.

“Using the support of the swing we are able to challenge the body moving through various postures, as well as allowing the nervous system to relax, encouraging a letting go into complete surrender. Inverting the body while suspended in the air not only provides many physical benefits such as spinal decompression, it also expands the mind by creating confidence, overcoming fear and allowing a change in the standard physical perception.”


Ana Prada, an aerial dancer and yoga practitioner, has worked with companies like Cirque du Soleil, “El despertar de la Serpiente” for the Expo 2008 in Spain, the show ‘Ulalena (Maui, Hawaii) as an acrobat, dancer, and aerial coach, and she has also worked with groups such as Antigravity, Caravan Stage Barge, and the duo project Madame Molotov with Edith Sauvé. She has also done numerous special events for Cirque Eloize, Cirque Fantastic, and Samadhi Aerials in places like Thailand, Switzerland, Canada, and the USA.

Time: February, Friday 21st/ 13h-15h Sat-Sun 22-23 9.30-11.30 AM

Cost: $110 for 3 days or $50 drop in classes.


Then, from March 1st to March 3rd Mariela Cruz will be hosting an introduction to Ashtanga Yoga. Mariela Cruz is an authorized master of Ashtanga by Guruji and Sharath and is the first Central American, and third Latin American to receive a Grade 2 KPJAYI title from Mysore, India.


Why Ashtanga Yoga?

“Ashtanga Yoga emphasizes vinyasa (meaning synchronized movement with breathing), a method of synchronizing progressive series of postures with a specific breathing. This process produces intense internal heat and profuse sweating, sweat that detoxifies muscles and internal organs. The result is improved circulation, a light and strong body and a calm mind.”

If you have never done Ashtanga Yoga no worries, this introduction to traditional Ashtanga Yoga workshop is open for all levels.

Dates: March 1 2014: Saturday 9 – 11 am & March 2, Sunday 9 – 11am. $110 USD per person for 2 classes
