TRANSPORTATION - HOW TO GET TO PRANAMAR

There are 2 domestic airlines in the country: Nature Air and Sansa. Both airlines fly from/to San Jose International Airport (SJO) to Tambor Airport (TMU) . You can check their schedules and book your tickets online. If their schedule does not fit your itinerary, another very good option is to charter a plane, which becomes monetarily convenient also when it is 4+ people. A private charter has more luggage allowance than the 30 pounds that are allowed per person by the local domestic airlines.

Flying to Tambor takes only 25 minutes. From Tambor, we can arrange a taxi for you, or we can have a car rental meet you and do the drive yourself. From Tambor it is a 50 minute drive to Pranamar.

HOW TO SIGN UP

In order to reserve your spot, a non-refundable deposit of $600 is required. Please email caron@highland-yoga.com with any questions or to move forward with booking. We hope you will join us for this rain forest adventure!

Fundraiser Class for Susan G. Komen

Help Caron raise money for Breast Cancer Awareness Month! Virtually every resident of Metro Atlanta will be touched by breast cancer in some form during their life. It’s a staggering fact: women in Atlanta are dying of breast cancer more often than women in the U.S. as a whole. As Atlanta’s largest breast health organization, Komen Atlanta is changing this statistic by fighting breast cancer on two fronts: at home by providing breast health and breast cancer services for those who cannot afford them, and globally through cutting edge research to find cures. But, they can’t do it alone. This October, during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Komen Atlanta invites Atlantans to join in the fight against breast cancer by taking fitness classes at our participating gyms in the month of October, all while fundraising for Komen Atlanta. Our fundraising goal of $250 will allow Komen Atlanta to provide free mammograms to two uninsured women in our community.

Take a $25-30 US taxi directly from International airport to the water taxi terminal in Belize City (approx. 30 minutes).

The boat ride over is $15US one way per person and roughly a 1 1/2 hour ride.

There is a daily schedule and two water taxis, both are walking distance away from one another.  We recommended taking Tropic air over if landing after 3pm so guests can arrive to Ak'bol in time for the Welcome Dinner at 6pm.

Strong to the Core Workshop

2:00 PM14:00

Strong to the Core Workshop

As yoga deepens our connection between our mind and our body, strengthening the core becomes essential. The core is both our physical and energetic center and is the literal foundation of strength and balance. Physical core strength provides functional stability, helps avoid injury, and enhances nearly every pose, while inner core strength gives us the support we need to take our practice to the next level.

In this workshop, we will focus on bringing awareness to the core in each posture and explore how tapping into that strength from within can help you achieve any pose.

This workshop is appropriate for all levels, but some yoga experience is recommended.
