Your Yoga Guide: Brady Wilson


Born and raised in Snowmass Village, in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, Brady was exposed from a very young age to the power and beauty of the natural world.  Through adolescence, Brady enjoyed a brief, young career as a competitive aerialist snowboarder.  After receiving a bachelor’s degree at Fort Lewis College, he became a Certified Yoga Instructor at Durango’s premier yoga studio: Yoga Durango.  During his third year as an instructor, he was invited to be an assistant for an international Yoga Teacher Training program in Costa Rica at the Pavones Yoga Center, where he is currently completing his 500 hour certification. Among a variety of other activities, he is passionate about mushroom hunting, performance poetry, singing and dancing, and pretty much anything that involves being in the wilderness.  Warm and welcoming, with a keen sense of humor and a love for adventure, Brady will lift your spirits and your hearts with his infectiously enthusiastic and optimistic outlook on life.


Seven Days For Seven Chakras
From the serenely pleasing home base of Finca Mia we will embark on an exploration of our chakras. Beginning with the root, moving up through each chakra sequentially, and culminating at the crown by the end of the week, we will use intentional breath work, visualization meditation, bija mantras, and chakra-specific asana sequencing to optimize energy flow within our bodies, and create balance and harmony in our energetic vortexes.


A few times in a life, you visit a new place and there is an energy about it that makes your heart sing. Finca Mia is nestled along the Rio Tilari whose headwaters originate on Costa Rica’s tallest peak, majestic Mount Chirripo (13,500 feet elevation at its peak). The elevation of Finca Mia (4000 ft) has the perfect climate…cool nights and warm days, surrounded by lush forest.  With extremely clean water and pure air, our retreat center is wonderfully secluded from the hoards of tourists.  Costa Rica has many different lodging locations available. But if you’re looking for something unique, an experience that is full of warmth, opportunity for self reflection and insight, and restful rejuvenation, Finca Mia is your refuge. Spend your days on beautiful Rio Tilari for sunbathing and a refreshing swim, or adventuring through cloud  forests, dramatic mountains, and lush tropical jungle.
