“Our bodies are meant to breath fresh oxygen, to walk, climb, exercise, dance and practice yoga and various art and healing forms for health, expression and balance,“ says Ireni Stamou, accomplished Canadian dancer of Greek descent, who will be “Artist in Residence” at Nosara B&B Retreat from June 15-July 15. She will be offering classes, workshops, and healing sessions. “I want the classes to be a creative, spontaneous exploration,” she adds.
“My work integrates yoga, dance and healing. I would like to take the time and space to pursue my research in a low-key personal retreat giving me the opportunity to integrate on a deeper level meditation, yoga and dance. I’m excited to go into the studio and see what emerges.”
“I also want to explore a sunset salutation yoga, dance ritual on the beach inspired by the amazing landscape and sunset at Pelada Beach. I would love by the end of the retreat to offer a performance as a work in progress.”

Ireni describes her unique experience of Yoga in the wilds of Costa Rica:“My yoga path truly began in the sacred rivers and deep ocean wildlife calls of Costa Rica. Suspending my life off the trees.
Enveloped in a living paradise, challenged by tropical storms, and hurricanes demanding me to completely let go. Isolated in a remote fishing village without immediate neighbors, telephone and internet in my beach shack for two years…the universal call to face oneself and the cry of the soul to awaken began. I dove into my yoga training like the sages of thousands of years ago, into the cave of my own being, taking off layers to arrive at the core of my own heart. In my yoga journey I am an eternal student and caring teacher. I integrate my love for dance, spiritual philosophy and poetry to my practice and teaching, all that resonates deeply within me and aligns with divinity.”
Poetic, spiritual, and joyously spontaneous Ireni encourages everyone’s perfect place in the universe and in themselves. She balances technique with improvisation, presence with imagination, devotion, discipline and commitment, science with artfulness, mindfulness and playfulness in the studio and in nature.
