YogaMandali Experience Teacher
Dagmar Spremberg is the founder and director of Montezuma Yoga in Costa Rica. While growing up in Germany all she could envision for herself was a life in the sunshine and under palm trees. After 20 years of soul searching and many detours that let her explore city life in Los Angeles and New York, she found her dream life by the beach in the lush & tropical nature of Costa Rica . Through her own experience she believes that everybody can live their dreams and that our work is to become clear and open to receive the gifts we all deserve.
Dagmar is a 500hr E-RYT and has trained for over 20 years with renowned teachers like Elena Brower & Rod Stryker in Vinyasa Flow and Yin Yoga. In addition to her yoga certification she also received training as a Holistic Heath coach in 2005 from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition in New York.
In her yoga classes she emphasizes a softening and deepening of the breath as the key to unlock your potential and your intuition, that will lead you to live the life of your dreams. What she has learned from living in nature is that we have all lost the deeper connection to source and that it is very important to return to nature to find stillness and to re-connect to our hearts and inner voices to live our life to the fullest.
When not in her home in Montezuma, Dagmar travels with her life partner Gaudan to teach vinyasa flow & hang music classes and retreats, that will guide you to get back into your flow and to celebrate stillness as well as finding your unique gifts.
What makes you truly happy? Can Happiness be found by adding more "stuff" to our lives? Or does real happiness rather feel like inner peace and contentment, those "simple" moments when you are still, watch a sunset, receive a smile from your lover, your child, a stranger?
You can't make happiness happen like a triangle pose. It's rather like savasana pose, where you can only create the perfect conditions to invite deep relaxation in.
So come down and relax. Enjoy yourself, surround yourself with beauty & nature. Take time to observe, enjoy & find yourself, reconnect…..
Learn to center yourself in the heart and be comfortable with stillness.

“Often we’re cast about by the noise of the world and the noise in our heads. Often we’re mesmerized by the stunning cacophony that masks itself as excitement. And though there’s much to be gained for being in the world, we can’t make sense of it till we stop the noise, till we go below the noise, till we go below the habit of our own thoughts. But it’s impossible to be still and quiet all the time. As a whale or dolphin must break surface, only to dive back down, only to break surface again, each of us must break surface into the noise of the world, only to rest our way back into the depth of stillness, where we can know ourselves and life more deeply, until we have to break surface again. No one is ever done with this crossover between noise and stillness. Not even those committed to a contemplative life. Not even those who are blind or mute. For the noise of the mind never dies. It can only be put in perspective, quieted until we can hear the more ancient voices that give us life. At every turn, we need to stop the noise, our own and everyone else’s, not to retreat from the world but to live more fully in it.” - Mark Nepo
