Moving through the Chakras in Costa Rica

A Feldenkrais®
Creative Body Immersion with Lavinia Plonka




Moving Through The Chakras: A Feldenkrais/Creative Body Immersion

Join me for this very special learning vacation in the tropical paradise of Costa Rica.

I have been leading international retreats for nearly 20 years, and this is the third one in Costa Rica. Each time I have found different venues and possibilities to explore, both in terrain as well as curriculum. This will be no exception. Moving Through The Chakras will link Awareness Through Movement lessons with guided meditations, dialog, inquiry and more.

My lifetime of research into everything from the Tarot to Neuroscience will come together for a whole person adventure into the self-image and its possibilities. No experience of the Chakras or Feldenkrais is necessary to enjoy this workshop. Just bring your curiosity!




Two to three Awareness Through Movement lessons per day

See workshop for complete details. 


Beach and relaxation time


Inspiring activities and dialog for practical application to the lessons


Optional excursions to wonderful Costa Rican sites

Who will benefit?

Bodyworkers – Experience practical movement approaches for yourself and your clients.

Feldenkrais teachers – Enhance your observational abilities and integrate new understanding of how Awareness Through Movement can help people realize their “avowed and unavowed dreams.” 

Mental Health Professionals – Discover somatic strategies that don’t involve touch but help release old stories

General public –Enjoy a luxurious and rewarding learning experience. 


You integrated Feldenkrais & spirit & mind into a wonderful flow.

Thank you again for the life-changing three days. For the first time in many years, I drove without any pain in my shoulders. It freed me from a decade of darkness.
