2021 DATES

November 28th – December 8th ZB I & II

November 28th – December 3rd ZB I only

December 3rd – December 8th ZB II only

Dates include 2 days for arrival and departure.

This class in Costa Rica (November 28th-December 8th with a day off in the middle for exploring Samara and its wonderful beachfront) is additionally special in that Zero Balancing is usually taught in two segments separated by months.  In this very special class, ZB I and II will both be taught, giving you in 8 class days, the entire Zero Balancing Core Protocol!  And, for people who’ve previously studied ZB, you are welcome to join in the ZB II portion of the curriculum (December 3rd-8th).

Zero Balancing I and II with David Lauterstein in Costa Rica

We are musculo-skeletal beings, yet most therapists focus only on the muscular side of that equation. That addresses only half of that system!  Zero Balancing – by adding a mindful focus on the bones, key joints, and the energy flowing through them, as well as on the soft tissues associated with them – for the first time, also gives you access to the deepest layer of the person – who they are in their bones – thus Zero Balancing adds a much-needed wholeness to your work and your clients’ experience.  Zero Balancing is the missing piece in the world of bodywork and bodymind therapies.

Playa Samara is a perfect paradise for massage therapy continuing education in Costa Rica. The town is nestled in the beautiful green hills of the famous Nicoya Blue Zone on the Pacific Coast of the peaceful Central American nation.


Enjoy strolling the streets of the small downtown area and visiting the many local and international restaurants, bars and discos, and cute gift shops. The beautiful and tranquil Samara Bay is surrounded by miles of palm tree lined white sand beaches and provides a perfect and safe location for kayaking, snorkeling, surfing, SUP, and swimming as well.


Enjoy simple and comfortable accommodations in our Costa Rican style bungalows tucked away in the heart of Playa Samara just seconds from the beach. Each 2 or 3 bedroom bungalow is fully furnished with a fully equipped kitchen, bathrooms and living room. Single or double bedrooms are available as well as studio apartments. Enjoy the swimming pool, lush gardens, WiFi access, hot water showers, and fans. A/C is available at an additional charge.
