About the leaders:
Dana Regan, 500 RYT & Life Coach
Experience your CREATIVITY.
Dana's classes are infused with Tantric philosophy, Freedom Flows, eclectic music & chanting. She received her first 200 hr. yoga teacher training through Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health in 2009. She furthered her studies with a BA in somatic psychology and performance art from Naropa University in Boulder, CO. During these years Dana developed a therapeutic method called Story-Awakening, which combines the techniques of yoga, drama therapy & somatic psychology. It was during this time that her love affair with Costa Rica and traveling began. Dana received her 500hr vinyasa yoga teacher training in Kerala, India through Sacred Lasya school of yoga, led by Coby Kozlowski & Danny Argueretty. Sacred Lasya YTT stems from the philosophy & lineage of Rajanka Tantra , brought to the West by Dr. Douglass Brooks. Dana has taught at the Yoga-Farm in Pavones, CR and is happy to be sharing her third retreat at the Costa Rica Yoga Spa. She is a somatic life coach, motivational speaker and improvisational artist. She believes humor and honesty are the keys to living a healthy, inspirational LIFE. When Dana is not on the road you can find her teaching with her sister’s in the New York area.
Jenese Martinez, E-RYT & Restorative Yoga Teacher Trainer
Jenese Martinez is the creator and owner of the Lotus Yoga Loft located in Pine Island, New York. I found my passion in movement and in nature as a child dancing barefoot on the grass or in an African dance class in Manhattan. After my first yoga class I felt more connected, creative, and blissed out. I have been devoted to my practice for over 12 years and teaching for a decade. I teach Vinyasa flow with attention to alignment and the breath, restorative, gentle, and yin. Weaving in chanting, poetry, and Eastern philosophy, while creating a soulful, inspiring, and playful atmosphere infused with music that will move your soul. Known to be a nurturer I provide a safe environment for my students to experience the bliss that is possible when the body, heart, and mind are in harmony. Studying dance and being a fitness teacher for over 20 years has influenced my teaching, as well as, my love for art and music.
My first certification was through YogaFit in 2002, and then I completed a 200 hour Vinyasa certification in 2003 through the Bright Spirit teacher training program with mentors Jillian Pransky and Carrie Parker-Gastelu. I completed another 200 hour certification from NYC Laughing Lotus Center under the mentorship of Dana Flynn, in 2011. In addition, Jenese is a certified Restorative Yoga teacher and leads Restorative workshops. Jenese continues to deepen her studies in restorative yoga, tantra vinyasa, philosophy and anatomy. She has been inspired by her studies with Jillian Pransky, Judith Hanson Lasater, Dana Flynn, Elena Brower, & Shiva Rea. Most recently, she is currently enrolled in The Himalayan Institute, studying to be an Ayurvedic Yoga Specialist. She is grateful to her son, family, teachers and students from whom she is filled with endless inspiration
