The Instructor

Tasia Sabatino
Yoga Ambassador

Tasia of Rebel Yoga's mission is to maintain an environment for people to grow both physically and mentally at their own pace through the practice of yoga. Individuals are guided to invite the benefits of yoga into their lives from a different perspective, not just your average yoga class.
Our focus is not on the attainment of a perfected yoga pose but to familiarize your body with asanas and proper alignment as we tend to loose correct posture throughout day to day.
Rebel Yoga's practice is built upon the foundations of vinyasa yoga, correct anatomical alignment and power. Through years and still to this day the main focus of yoga is to connect your mind, mental state, your body, physical awareness of ones self, and your spirit, or a higher power of what you believe. Connecting mind, body, spirit results in countless benefits and especially maintaining balance in all aspects of life.
Rebel Yoga does the same but in addition awakens that inner fire within you that you've been searching for, spreading your wings like a butterfly ready to take flight.

Words can not describe our unreal experiences, everyone stepped out of their comfort zone multiple times during the trip, faced their fears and most of all we all gained 15 new sisters. This trip was a truly unforgettable experience that all of us will keep close to our hearts for years to come. Our stay, the people, the country, the food is just amazing! #costaricarebels !!

Perfect location to retreat to and focus on what matters. Secluded yet close to beautiful beaches and towns. El Sabanerno felt like home. An excellent spot to wake up in and come home to after a day of exploring or soaking up the salt water with an Imperial in hand.

The trip fulfilled every need I had coming into it- from peace on the mat, an amazing group of women, to a tranquil space for reflecting and growing. Shayna was the best retreat leader I could have asked for- attentive to all of our needs, supportive, warm, on top of every detail and aspect of the trip. Just fantastic.

WOW. Just WOW. Considering that A. this was my first yoga retreat and B. this was my first time traveling with Trip Tribe, I am entirely blown away and slightly addicted! I traveled with my boyfriend, who is NOT a yogi (bu really enjoyed the trip!!). We loved meeting new people and exploring with such a fun group of singles, friends, other couples and fellow travelers: Details: First of all, the coordination of flights and transportation was perfect. Everything went smoothly. Trip Tribe communicated everything we needed to know well ahead of our departure and Amy, the trip ambassador, supplemented with additional information as needed. Once we arrived at our destination, I was pleased to see that our accommodations at El Sabanero were humble, yet comfortable and adequate (think: clean but simple), and that there were common comforts like hot water (with some patience), safes and wifi (slowish wifi). They even provided a few shampoos, bars of soap and beach towels, which was unexpected. The natural surroundings of El Sabanero were beautiful and it was such a treat to stay in such a lovely natural environment. The general atmosphere at El Sabanero was amazing. The pool was lovely to swim in after our sweaty yoga sessions. The large meeting/eating space was tranquil and lovely. And the yoga spaces where we practiced were calm and peaceful. And the staff from all different parts of our trip -- from Harold to Hazel to Ana to Fernando to Donald, etc. -- were amazing, kind and welcoming. They made it really feel like home! The food at El Sabanero was AMAZING. A-MA-ZING. The kitchen staff really knows what they are doing and totally spoiled us with fresh bread, homemade gourmet meals and amazing dishes all week long. Even some of the packed lunches (for when we weren't there during lunch) were good! A HUGE thumbs up and major reason why you should stay at El Sabanero! Also, it doesn't hurt that beer/wine/cocktails are crazy affordable and also delicious! As for the yoga, Amy did her usual amazing thing. I've taken several classes of hers in DC, so I wasn't surprised to find that she taught similar wonderful classes in Costa Rica. Newbie or advanced, this girl's classes are a MUST-do! I particularly loved her Fusion Flow Yoga class (think martial arts meets HIIT meets yoga) and the nightly Nidra/Restorative classes. Major thumbs up for the quality of the classes, variety of classes and expertise of our instructor and trip ambassador! Additionally, I went to several beach visits during my trip with the group, and loved them both! I event tried my hand at surfing which was a total blast. I would also recommend getting a massage from Ana, going on the adventure tour and heading on the Catamaran Sunset sail (erm, skip that if you are seasick!). All in all, this was an amazing trip. Kudos!

Couldn't have asked for a better first experience on a yoga retreat! The lodge was tucked away in a very small secluded area which was nice and transportation is a must to venture out. The food provided by Donald was mind blowing. The opportunity to practice above the lodges was incredible, practices were greeted with gorgeous views and a variety of local sounds. I would do it all over again in a heartbeat!

Foundations and Flow with Tina and Christina at El Sabanero was a truly special experience and one that I will never forget. This trip was a unique opportunity to create a close-knit community from people that had been only barely acquainted before. The natural environment, pool, and open-air yoga studio provided the perfect peaceful setting to recharge and relax. The lodge itself is rustic and a bit far from major attractions. The scenery is not the lush jungle one might imagine when picturing Costa Rica, but it is only about 20 minutes from beautiful beaches. I cannot highly enough recommend Christina and Tina as yoga instructors and spiritual leaders, nor can I praise adequately the healthy and delicious food, prepared mostly by Donald and Hazel.

What a wonderful experience! Trip Tribe was fantastic throughout the process especially this being our first retreat with a very large group attending. The staff at El Sabanero could not have been more hospitable. Harold, the resort manager communicated directly with me throughout the process answering questions as they came up. Donald and Hazel, our chefs were wonderful. They worked with varying dietary needs of our large group of 33 students. Yoga space was lovely and even enjoyed a closing ceremony bonfire at the fire pit. Already planning our next retreat! PURA VIDA!

Unbelievably beautiful. Friendly, courteous staff. Food was prepared and offered for all discriminating palates, a 5-star rating for sure. Butterflies, flowers, birds and gorgeous landscaping surround this tropical paradise. A place to truly get away and unwind. Hammocks await afternoon naps while the pool calls for a refreshing swim. Safe, inviting and highly recommended.
