Simplify & Surrender Retreat
~Costa Rica~ July 13-20, 2019
Viva la Pura Vida! Located in Nosara, Costa Rica, our retreat location is perched on a hilltop overlooking the Pacific Ocean and a three-mile white sand beach that is protected as a turtle refuge. The pristine nature, subtropical climate, dedicated staff, and the healing energy of the Nosara community create the ideal environment for an unforgettable and deeply nurturing experience. Nosara, is located in one of the 5 Blue Zones. Blue Zone is a concept used to identify a geographic area of the world where more people live to be centenarians (past 100 years) than elsewhere. These “zones” are longevity hotspots where having common healthy traits and life practices result in higher-than-normal longevity. This area and its people exude vibrant health and happiness. Yoga Journal has named our resort as one of the best places on earth for a yoga escape!
Are you convinced yet? Perhaps you’d like to hear about the amazing healthy, gourmet cuisine that will make you feel like you’re being decadent and will leave you feeling satisfied and full of energy. All meals are included in the retreat cost – breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Yes, we are in the jungle but our accommodations are anything but primitive. The rooms are elegantly decorated with options for ocean views or mountain/nature views. All have wifi and air conditioning.
Which way to the beach? The beach offers great surfing to beginners and advanced alike. Our resort is located at the quiet end of the beach, where swimming is easy, thanks to the gentle current. The short 700 foot walk to the beach transverses lush grounds full of mango trees and coconut palms. Or perhaps you’re feeling just a bit lazy and would rather chill by the salt water infinity pool and lounge with a book.
Yoga classes will be offered 1-2 times daily in a gorgeous yoga studio with views of either the ocean or the plush tropical surroundings. Morning classes will challenge you in traditional Yoga Central fashion using intelligent vinyasa sequencing to inspire, make you sweat, make you laugh and even help you get in a good cry. Evening classes will be a mix of workshops, restorative and yin.
Kick-Ass Yoga, scrumptious cuisine, comfortable and attractive accommodations, and hang time at the beach aren’t the only items on the menu. There is plenty of free time to explore or get adventurous. Some activities available are Horseback Riding on the Beach, Ocean Kayaking, Stand-Up Paddle Boarding, Zip-line CanopyTours, Waterfall Hikes and Surfing Lessons. Of course, indulging in an incredible spa treatment or two is always a good option. Because there is so much to do, see, explore and experience, this is the ideal yoga holiday to invite your significant other who isn’t quite the yogi you are. He or she will have plenty of options to keep busy or simply enjoy the spectacular accommodations and resort amenities.
The yoga vacation experience includes:
• 7-nights at a beautiful secluded Costa Rica Eco Resort located 5-minute walk from the beach
• 1-2 yoga sessions daily–morning and/or sunset
Three delicious, gourmet meals per day prepared with fresh, local foods.
There are no schedules or requirements to meet. You are welcome to attend by yourself, or with a friend. Spouses, loved ones and friends who don’t practice yoga can join us too.
