Colynn Vosburgh E-RYT 500 started her journey in the healthcare field in 2000 while simultaneously also beginning her path in yoga. Moving through the ranks of uncertified Home Support Worker, Care Aide, Licensed Practical Nurse and then Registered Nurse, all within the Emergency Department, she thought she had found her place in the world. After years of service, being overworked and underappreciated, Colynn experienced burnout and decided that being a doctor was likely the answer to it all… She applied to and was accepted to Medical School and coincidentally also did her yoga teacher training. She immediately recognized that Med School was not the answer, but felt locked in due to family support and an incredibly large student loan. Colynn journeyed through it all, starting a yoga business while raising a family, while working as a nurse and becoming a doctor. Little sleep and an incredibly packed schedule, brought her to a place of committing to a path, and she chose the path of yoga. She decided to leave medical school and retire from nursing and put all of her energy into yoga and eventually coaching others in life and business. As life does, continued challenges of empty nest and new relationships brought her to the point of selling everything and starting on the nomadic path. Continuing on this path, Colynn spends a majority of her time in Costa Rica, loving the ocean, the jungle and most importantly the people.

The path of yoga and coaching has brought Colynn’s western knowledge and clinical experience to meet with her eastern yoga philosophy and chakra work to create her very personal and individually tailored offerings. She is filled with joy to offer anatomy lessons, yoga classes, past life regressions and facilitate teacher trainings to support awakening however that looks to each person. She has taught over a hundred Yoga Teacher Trainings and has thousands of hours of Yoga Training to support on this path.


For Colynn, Yoga is a sacred teaching offering us tools that help us to navigate life. The postures (known as asana) remind us to connect to our individual anatomy and bring us back into our bodies, while meditation sparks a conversation with our minds, and the breath nourishes us and helps to connect the mind and the body. While it can all seem so heavy, it doesn’t have to be. Colynn mixes humor, real life and spirituality into a themed, awesome playlisted and fun yoga class that will help you release tension, relax your body (yes, even in flow) and reconnect to you.

During the week at Anamaya, morning classes will be strong, flowing sequences that focus on waking up your body and mind, while being present to your breathing, alignment and experience in each moment. Evening classes will have alternated between candlelit Yin & candlelit Restorative and will mirror not only am classes, but will also be the perfect compliment to your activities throughout the day, be they adventuring, surfing or suntanning. 

Beyond wanting to teach you great yoga classes, Colynn wants to make the entire experience at Anamaya rejuvenating and impactful. Colynn’s classes, workshops & healing work are aimed at increasing your awareness of you as the observer of your body, thoughts and mind to offer you understanding and knowledge of a way to disentangle yourself from the dramas of life. Slowing down is not something that you do, it is a state of being and no matter what you are doing in life, you can find a way to be. All work done during this week, will be centered around reconnecting, slowing down and enjoying life with lush jungles and sandy beaches as the backdrop to immense growth.
