“The Balanced Life Retreat was nothing short of life changing for me. The time away from my regular hectic schedule to focus completely on nourishing my body, mind and spirit, along with the teaching and guidance from Shasta, allowed me to deal with things that were holding me back and unlock new potential for myself and my future. I can’t wait to get started! And I can’t wait for the next trip.” – Sara, Ajax, ON
“Thank you from the very bottom of my heart for the 2014 Costa Rica Retreat. You have given us all a gift like no other! I never realized how much I was limiting myself with my own thoughts and how trapped I felt in my own body until you helped me open up and do the work. I now feel I can achieve things I never thought possible for myself. I experienced happiness, freedom and awe as I went places I’ve never been before both physically and spiritually. It has been both incredibly challenging and liberating this week. I really enjoyed the enlightening and inspiring lessons that came with each practice. Your teachings Shasta, are an absolute blessing. I look forward to having this knowledge, experience and sense of community to bring home and incorporate into my everyday life. I am very thankful to you, Ian and everyone else who has made this experience so incredible. Sending love and appreciation!” -Sabina, Uxbridge, ON

“It was a pleasure and privilege to be a part of Balanced Life Yoga’s 2013 Costa Rica Retreat! I thank Shasta for sharing her insight, hindsight and foresight in such a meaningful way. She provided us all with the motivation to grow daily in our yoga practice, while challenging us to seek out and create the communities that will support what we aspire to achieve in mind, body and soul. Shasta is indeed an inspiration and I am so glad that I was able to experience the essence of “pura vida” in Costa Rica with Balanced Life Yoga! And Blue Osa is truly a magical place and I can’t imagine a more fitting venue to nurture the spirit of natural harmony within.” – Kathy S, London, ON.
“Thank you to Shasta and Ian from the bottom of my heart. I cannot thank you both enough for your continuous love and sharing of your hearts unconditionally as well as the dream you create for others!! I simply said “yes” to loving myself and attended your “Magical Yoga Retreat in Costa Rica”! I soaked up and experienced true life unfolding before my eyes and it took my breath away many times! I am so grateful for the love and passion that Blue Osa and its kind people mirrored back to us every day. Being surrounded by the natural beauty and peaceful setting, the ocean and true treasures of the Jungle was truly amazing and allowed me to witness the beautiful unfolding of the many new courageous butterflies in the attendees. I am truly grateful for all your love and sharing! Grateful with love.” – Helen M., Ajax
“I attended the 2013 Costa Rican yoga retreat with the extremely talented Shasta and a group of wonderfully inspirational people. The trip was a magical experience filled with tears of joy, laughter, encouragement and support. I have never felt so rejuvenated and relaxed in my entire life. The yoga and meditation each day soothed my soul and left me with the feeling of ultimate tranquility. The staff at Blue Osa were absolutely amazing and I have never had more delicious and gourmet meals! Thank you Shasta for making this such a memorable experience for me that I will cherish for the rest of my life. Namaste” – Alicia T, Toronto, ON.
