About us


April 8th-15th, 2017

Playa Hermosa, Costa Rica

Join us next year for another wonderful retreat in at the exotic Vida Asana Eco-Retreat & Yoga Center in Costa Rica. In addition to daily pilates and MELT classes there will be day excursions, and ample time to spend by the ocean!

Classes (Pilates, MELT and even some Yoga)

During this 7 day retreat you will practice the MELT Method, including its Neurostrength Techniques designed to activate the core and strengthen and stabilize the shoulder and pelvic girdles. We will then use the increased flexibility and strength to delve deep into the Pilates Mat work. We are hoping to lure special guests to do some complementary instruction, but that will be a secret surprise. On top of this, optional daily Yoga classes, by a wonderful local instructor, will happen at the retreat for those who can’t get enough of a workout.

Vida Asana Eco-Retreat & Yoga Center

For those of you who weren’t able to make it this year, we missed you and you will love this place. Vida Asana Eco-Retreat & Yoga Center located on the pacific coast in Costa Rica. It is a beautiful retreat center and eco-resort providing lodging and delicious, fresh organic meals. On site are spa treatments as well as yoga classes.

Optional Activities available (at additional cost):

  • Paddle Boarding
  • Surfing Lessons
  • Temescal Sweat Lodge
  • Zip Lining
  • Waterfall Tour

We encourage guests to soak up the sounds, smells, and visually appealing landscape, while letting go and allowing their soul room to breathe. Be as active or as indolent as you like. This is your week to unwind, renew, refresh and recharge.

Carol LeMaitre

Pilates and Melt classes will be taught by Carol Le Maitre, founder and owner of Sanchez Street Studios. Classes open to all levels. Space is limited to allow for deeper work and a greater sense of connection with the place and fellow participants.

Free Retreat Givewaway

We love you. And because we do, we're giving away another free retreat.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Reconnecting with myself after a very crazy few months with a new baby! Just having that feeling of being grounded again. But also having an opportunity to connect with new amazing people. Getting exposed and Inspired by new (to me) yoga instructors (and community). Being in the presence of real, authentic and raw emotion (the whole spectrum).. So many reasons! Alyson

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
