Returning to Panama for 2018. Join Dan Hines and Marcia Wilson for this themed yoga and Courage & Renewal experiences. The theme guiding this exploration is Wayfinding. Wayfinding is the traditional art of navigating the open ocean. Sansara offers a beachfront location and graceful thatched roof studio facing the Pacific Ocean: waters where ancient navigation practices are being rediscovered among the Pacific Islands.
Through practices that will include yoga, journal writing, mindfulness, and large and small group work, we will be attentive to our bodies, listen to our hearts and minds, and invite our personal narratives to speak to us. The stories and images of wayfinding will guide us as we navigate the complex environment of human life. Explore with Dan and Marcia, experienced teachers and facilitators, who are excited to weave together their distinctive learning from their lineages and traditions.
We'll spend 6 nights and 7 days at the beautiful Sansara Resort located on the Pacific ocean in stunning Cambutal, Panama. Your days will be filled with soulful exploration, journal writing, yoga, chanting, friendship, adventure, and relaxation. You will have a wide array of activities including surfing, sup, kayaking, snorkeling, fishing, hiking, bike riding, and exploring all that Panama has to offer.

Marcia has a passionate belief in living a life that connects and inspires. This philosophy has fuelled her life both on and off the yoga mat. A mom, a lifelong learner and a deeply passionate and open being, her life explorations have included studies in occupational therapy and biochemistry, long self propelled journeys by bike and foot in mountains and on remote roads, and testing her edge in triathlons of all distances including Ironman. Her yoga journey has included exploration of Anusara, Ashtanga, and Bikram yoga. Her current journey? Exploring the edges of vibrant health and energy through practices of yoga, ayurveda and healthy living. She owns and operates a yoga studio in Kamloops, BC – a reflection of her belief that we need to look creatively at how we can best care for ourselves and the world around us. Marcia trained primarily in the US and has over 1000 hours of study with Martin and Jordan Kirk, Noah Maze, Marc Holzman, Paul Muller Ortega, Todd Inouye, Cate Stillman, Stephen Thomas and John Friend. Her background in health and rehabilitation and her own health challenges of scoliosis and asthma have inspired her to explore all aspects of yoga, including gentler practices such as restorative yoga and subtle practices of breathwork and meditation. Marcia has been teaching children and adults since 2009.
