The Uniqueness of YOU Yoga Retreat

About us

What Makes This Particular Retreat So Special?

The attention to detail around YOU.

From  the organic Essential Oils we use on your face and body to the nurturing content of our yoga sequencing and meditation practice .

From the inclusion of a uniquely Costa Rican CACAO CEREMONY with the Tibetan Bowls AND  an afternoon in a SWEAT LODGE followed by Sunset Meditation.

This retreat takes YOU to the centre of the experience.

Where YOU become the experience.

Venue Highlights

Vida Asana is situated between the lush tropical beauty of the jungle and the world famous surf beaches of Playa Hermosa. This location provides easy access to a variety of activities, excursions, restaurants, and shopping, yet offers a peaceful jungle setting. Come and get lost between the ocean and the jungle and we’ll take care of the rest

Vida Asana sits on 1.5 acres conveniently located immediately outside Jaco in beautiful Playa Hermosa, Costa Rica. Just 90 minutes from San Jose Airport (SJO).

The food at Vida Asana is created with a healthy lifestyle as the inspiration. Every meal is made from scratch using whole, and as often as possible, organic ingredients. Vida Asana is continuing to install more permaculture gardens to increase the onsite organic harvest.

Vida Asana takes water very seriously. All water from the property goes through two filters before reaching rooms and kitchen, and then continues through a diverse filtration process complete with restoring any beneficial minerals pulled out during the filtering, before reaching the water station.

Why Retreat?

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

After participating in more yoga classes and events this year than in my entire life, I am yearning for the opportunity to attend a professional retreat. The opportunity to grow my practice, learn from talented students and teachers, and immerse myself in this gorgeous Red Feather Lakes sanctuary is the dream of a lifetime! Sara
