Yoga Retreats with LEANNA HAMILTON - Anamaya Costa Rica Yoga Retreat Hotel Teacher Training, Surf Camp and Eco Lodge

Yoga Retreats with LEANNA HAMILTON

Anamaya is no ordinary retreat center…we provide an experience that transforms people at a cellular level. Our guests connect to nature, they connect to others from around the world, and most importantly they connect to themselves.

You can come for the yoga…but it’s not necessary. Many of our guests come to simply enjoy everything else Costa Rica has to offer.

Holiday Retreat Dates:

March 21 – 28, 2020



Leanna discovered yoga in 2010, after an invite to what turned out to be a three-hour, heated vinyasa flow. With her foot shaking in her hand, Leanna was overwhelmed with laughter and joy. There was no turning back. Coming from a background in dance, Leanna was exhilarated by the challenge of developing both athleticism and breath-body movement. She found that as the dance world became something of the past, yoga became something of the present. She was able to express her artistry through yoga. After two years as an eager student, she decided the next natural step was to pursue her teaching certificate. Leanna trained under Tiffany Yoga (now Yoga Medicine) and received her 200-RYT in 2013. She is currently finishing her 500-RYT program with Yoga Medicine.

Leanna has found that her passion as a teacher lies in the integration of anatomical awareness, and playful, mindful movement. She strives to give each student the opportunity to learn within his or her own body, through very specific and guided cues. Leanna’s specialties are in shoulder, spine and hip dysfunction, yoga for athletes, myofascial release, Chinese Medicine and inversions. While her classes may require unique movement, multifunctional use of props and a possible inversion, or two, they are always accessible for all levels.



There are probably more people wondering what the actual benefits of an inversion practice are than those who are ready to jump upside-down. The truth is, there are actually many benefits to getting inverted, including improved blood circulation, mental clarity and increased energy! There are also many levels in which that can be accomplished. I will be here to guide you into your inversion journey safely and with a playful approach. This workshop will look at armbalances, forearm balances and headstand. We will go over specific stabilizing exercises for the muscles involved and then play upside-down! This 2-hour workshop is designed for all levels and is $25.


Myofascial Release is a technique used to release and soften the fascia back to a healthy state in order to function properly. When the fascia is functioning properly, the body can work in a healthy way allowing for decreased chance of injury, and/or healing in areas that are already injured. You will receive two tennis balls and will learn the tools of self-myofascial release from the toes to the head. This “hurts so good” technique will leave you wanting more! This 2-hour workshop is designed for all levels and is $30.


The goal of this workshop is to get you into handstand using a safe, alignment-based method. We will go over strengthening exercises, anatomy of the handstand, how to fall out of handstand, and secret tricks of the trade to get you flying. For those more advanced in your handstand practice, we will also be going over multiple approaches in handstand, including, pop-ups, kick-ups and presses. This 2-hour workshop is designed for all levels and is $25. See you on the flip-side!
