About This Center

The magic of the Costa Rican Rainforest and the dance of the Caribbean Sea make the perfect combination to create this Yoga Teacher Training and Retreat Center. The Goddess Garden is a Yoga Retreat and a Yoga Teacher Training Retreat Center and most of all, an Intentional place for yoga, meditation and transformation in Costa Rica.

Transformation can take place by practicing yoga, meditating and living fully in the present. The Goddess Garden provides the facilities for yoga teacher training with the best yoga instructors and yoga group retreats in Cahuita, Costa Rica.

Costa Rica is great for yoga practice since it is a non belligerent country that disposed of the army many years ago and has a consciousness geared for peace. The practice of yoga and meditation will help to bring peace in an individual and affect the country and the world. So choose to come to our yoga retreat and yoga teacher training resort to practice and learn yoga in Costa Rica, in the midst of awesome natural surroundings.

We have opened the doors of our Yoga Retreat Center and Yoga Teacher Training Center for people who want to feel in harmony with nature and wish to practice yoga in this lovely rainforest and beach scenario.

Venue Highlights

The Goddess Garden is a magical place, where the rainforest meets the Caribbean Sea. It sits in the middle of a centenary forest with some trees more than 300 years old.

All our facilities are in the middle of the forest to allow our guests to benefit from the healing power of nature. Our yoga studios are surrounded by centenary trees, plants and wild life. During your practice, the healing energy of nature boosts the aura, balances the chakras and supports the flow of life energy. I feel, as many others who have attended retreats here, that my spiritual practice reaches a higher level in this special energetic place.

From the property, a 5 minutes walk leads you to a pristine beach 10 miles long. The only human presence you will likely find is yourself and your group. Our guests love doing their morning meditation on the beach, benefiting from the sunrise and the relaxing sounds of the waves.

At The Goddess Garden, you can relax into nature, rejuvenate, do your practice and tap into a deeper connection with your inner Source.

You can also explore the Carribean coast with organised eco tours, adventure activities or spending time in the best beaches around.
