I would like to express my deep gratitude to you introducing me to Iyengar Yoga. I must have lived on another planet as I had no idea of the profound differences.
I love every minutes of your classes, it was challenging and satisfying. I am so excited that I can now share what I learned to people that can truly benefit greatly from Iyengar Yoga, including my husband, David. I told him that he just have to come with me next time as I am tired updating him the dinner menu and having him drooling at home.
I wish you could have seen my puzzled face when you were instructing about folding the blankets. This will be my favorite moment to share. You have such a magic touch, sharp and experienced eyes. Within a glance, you know exactly what our needs are. I will never forget when you adjusted me on my shoulder stand, how I miraculously straighten upward. Little did I know, I had my butt sticking out all these times with no one ever correcting me, another of my favorite moments to share.
I went online yesterday and purchased 6 blankets, 2 chairs, 2 wooden blocks and the book you recommended. My little yoga practice space at home will be stocked to the rim. I will pursue a weekly Iyengar class starting in May, if I survive this coming tax season, LOL !!!
Wishing you a very wonderful Holiday Season.
Much Love to You,

From the daily yoga to the tranquil setting this retreat is just that... a genuine RETREAT far far away from the daily clamor. The fabulous food and incredibly caring staff at Blue Osa make it a very special place. Lorna is both an experienced teacher and wonderful human being who caters easily to students of all levels. Although I don't practice Iyengar yoga exclusively, studying with Lorna on retreat has created a solid foundation for my practice. The principles of Iyengar teachings have taught me how to practice safely in any class. Working with lower back issues, it has truly changed my practice + my life. There was a time when I thought my injuries would keep me from yoga and other activities I love. Retreats with Lorna have been key to my recovery. I cannot say enough about the magic of this particular retreat. It is an experience you will not forget.

I went to Blue Osa last November, 2015 with Lorna and her group. I have been a student of Lorna's off and on for 15 years. I had seen photos of the previous year and thought I knew what it was going to be like. Well I didn't. I found paradise. Everything from the food to the beach to doing yoga was an experience that rocked my world. The location was beautiful, the food beyond delicious. The beaches were pristine, the yoga was invigorating in the morning and restorative in late afternoon. I found such serenity. I fell in love with this pace of life...This experience will stay with me the rest of my life. I am blessed.

I have been on Lorna's retreat to Costa Rica twice. The whole experience was amazing...a once in a lifetime adventure. Luckily, I got to go again.
Lorna is a phenomenal Iyengar yoga teacher. She is able to teach a whole class, yet deal with each persons individual needs. There were two classes a day that were wonderful.
Blue Osa is a spectacular place where you are able to leave all stresses behind. The food is organic and delicious! The property is right in the rainforest and feels like a paradise. Blue Osa is on the beach and the water is magnificent. I went in at least twice a day. One of the amazing a things about this paradise is that there is no one else around. Everyone who works there is caring and genuine. I also appreciated the meditative quality to the atmosphere.
I highly recommend this experience!!!
