On a pristine and breath-taking Pacific Coast beach lined by wild jungle and gifted with mesmerizing sunsets is the setting of our Costa Rica Yoga Retreat. Enjoy a relaxing and fulfilling week delving into your yoga practice and learning to surf or stand up paddle (SUP) in the warm water on the Nicoya Peninsula.
Santa Teresa is one of the best beaches in Costa Rica for its long stretches of white sand, beautiful scenery and great year-round surf. It has been rated in the top 10 beach destinations in Central America for 2013 on TripAdvisor. Due to its relative remoteness, it has been protected from any over-development and maintains a low-key feel. It is ideal for those seeking a more secluded escape into nature.
At our beachfront hotel, luxurious accommodations include bungalows and villas from where you hear the soothing sounds of the surf and feel the balmy breeze evoking the recognition of being in a tropical paradise. A 5-minute drive or 20-minute beach walk from the hotel is the colorful and laid-back town of Santa Teresa.
Travel to Santa Teresa from San José international airport (SJO). See Getting Here for more details. Plan to arrive early to late afternoon. The retreat starts in the early evening with an orientation and welcome dinner.
The retreat is led by Vajra Sol Yoga staff members who are with you throughout the week. Begin each day with breakfast at your leisure. Customize your retreat by choosing either Surf, Stand Up Paddle or Pure Yoga for the morning activity.
After lunch there is free time to relax by the pool, take a siesta, receive a massage, walk the beach or visit with new friends. Wednesday is a free day from surfing for those who want to participate in one of the exciting tours offered in the area. If you are SUPing there will be three half-day outings with the other two mornings free. The Pure Yoga option includes daily morning yoga classes (take a free day if you like).
The whole group joins for the 1.5-hour afternoon yoga session which are held in an enchanting open-air yoga studio surrounded by tropical gardens.
The retreat ends after breakfast. Guests may leave at anytime to transfer back to San José. Check-out is at 12 noon.
Disconnect from a busy lifestyle, reconnect to slow and conscious living, take time for inner reflection and have some fun in the sun and surf!
