Carmel Calcagno began her practice in 1989 after a book fell on her head in a local bookstore. The book, “Initiation,” was not about yoga but reincarnation. In one of the lifetimes, the author was an Egyptian Princess and did yoga every morning. Carmel bought the book and took her first yoga class the same month. After practicing for seven years, her teacher asked her to teach for him while he was away, not her plan, but it was the beginning of her teaching experience. After 10 years of practicing yoga, Carmel met John Friend, creator of Anusara Yoga, and began her practice with the most amazing group of teachers ever! She was certified in 2003 and opened her studio, Yoga Anjali, in Belmar, NJ, the same year. Carmel also has a strong meditation practice after being initiated into Neelakantha Meditation by Paul Mueller-Ortega of Blue Throat Yoga in 2008.

Carmel now has a program of mentoring teachers as she continues to grow in her own practice and has let go of owning a studio in order to concentrate more on workshops and retreats. Her summers are spent teaching Yoga on the Beach in Avon, New Jersey. Carmel is a Certified Anusara Teacher since 2003 and has been teaching since 1996. She also is a student of Paul Mueller Ortega and a meditator of Neelakantha Meditation.

The retreat will be held at an intimate beachfront hotel and yoga center located in Santa Teresa, a breathtaking white sand beach on the Pacific Ocean of Costa Rica’s Nicoya Peninsula. Situated on four acres of unspoiled tropical beach, you will find beautiful swimming areas and also outcroppings of rock where natural tide pools form. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are prepared daily and include healthy vegetarian options along with fish and/or chicken. The food is organic when available and prepared with nourishing ingredients.
