“We are never more fully alive, more completely ourselves, or more deeply engrossed in anything, than when we are at play.” ― Charles Schaefer
This retreat is designed to take the adventurous yogi to a deeper level of self-awareness and is perfect for those who want to unblock all mental & physical barriers to live the best life ever! Throughout this week, we will embark on a transformative process of mind and body detoxification using a combination of dynamic poses, meditation, journaling and community for an experience of deep connection and awakening. Join us at Costa Rica’s premier 100% Off-The-Grid, Solar Powered, Gourmet Vegetarian Retreat Center where you will live and learn the lessons of one of the Earth’s only five “Blue Zones: places in the world where higher percentages of people enjoy remarkably long, full lives” according to author Dan Buettner.
Yoga in paradise means we will awaken each morning and end each day with a yoga practice designed to bring awareness and balance. Come unplug in a modern Zen tree house where you have time to relax, read, journal, set mindful goals, rest and renew your entire sense of well-being in between morning yoga, pool yoga, restorative yoga and incredible vegetarian meals. In the afternoon, wander through the Jurassic jungle enjoying adjacent secluded waterfalls or walk 1000 yards to a glorious surf and swimming beach. In many ways, attending a yoga retreat is always a type of overall collaborative experience because it provides you an opportunity to share, have fun and connect with other like-minded people.
Furthermore, as your guides and life coaches with a combined twelve years experience organizing group travel adventures, we are 100% committed to helping you reach your full potential in a friendly, unpretentious, and supportive environment. Join us at this private 40-acre eco-estate exclusive for only 12 guests with comfortable breezes that provides a magical place where you deepen your yoga practice, relax, refresh, detox your body, transform your mind and catalyze change for living a LIFE-inspired!
This trip embodies the vision of transformation. In 7 days you will:
*Integrate Spirit and Nature as you enjoy exceptional yoga, hiking, eco-adventures to a waterfall, horseback riding, connecting with pristine beaches, organic food, and relaxing jungle spa treatments.
