Increasing the awareness of your body puts you back in touch with your inherent healing nature and sets you up to integrate these practices when you leave the retreat. Empowering students to continue with this journey far beyond our time together.

María de Miguel Ibáñez will be your Belly Dancing Teacher this week. At 7 years of age she had her first experience with dance through figure skating, but at 18 she discovered the ancestral art of belly dance and she felt in love with it. At 22 Maria became a member of the Arabesque Dance Troupe company. Her troupe traveled around Spain and Portugal dancing at Arabic events and Medieval Fairs. In 2014 Maria moved to Montezuma, Costa Rica where she works as a belly dance teacher and as a performer at different hotels in the area, private parties and street shows. Maria soon became a part of the artistic team of Anamaya, and more recently, she was part of the reality show “Jungle Live” on the Discovery Channel.
Chef Jeff is our amazing Chef at Anamaya. His solid experience in Michelin star restaurants, with his own businesses combined with his passion for new world cuisine, give the guests of Anamaya an unforgettable culinary experience. Jeffery was raised in Florida, and after working his way up the ranks in Gainsville he took charge of Emiliano’s Café, under executive Chef Ali de Paz with Chef Joe Ramos. He later worked with Michelin Star Chef John Tennick and Chef Phil Robertson all becoming major influences in Jeff’s culinary journey. Eventually Jeffery reunited with Chef Alida De Paz and opened MYA New World Cuisine in Escazu Costa Rica. Chef Jeff’s talents in the kitchen are impossible to ignore, and we are grateful to have him as Head Chef at Anamaya.
