Christmas Yoga Retreat || Blue Osa Yoga Retreat For the Holidays

About us

Escape the cold, and come experience the meaning of Christmas, Blue Osa style.


Christmas in Costa Rica, a yoga retreat at Blue Osa offers much more than retreats usually do. With one daily energizing yoga class in the morning and one healing gentle flow yoga class in the afternoon, you are going to leave Blue Osa clear-minded and focused, ready to take on 2019.

In between the classes you can enjoy the beach and the turquoise ocean, swim in the pool, or take part in an adventurous jungle tour. 

The enchanting Blue Osa beach-front resort is situated in one of the most bio-diverse areas of not only Costa Rica but of the planet! Enjoy delicious, healthful farm to table meals. Swim in the ocean or chemical-free pool. Indulge in the spa. Tour the jungle, chocolate farm, or animal sanctuary. Give yourself a chance to reconnect and recharge. 

Every day, we serve the freshest farm-to-table meals at Blue Osa. Additionally, in the week you will be treated to an optional morning walk with our in-house guide. He will take you for an invigortating morning walk to see some of the wildlife waking up and the journey will end at our farm where you will get to see farm-to-table come to life.

The location is just as beautiful as the pictures and it was heavenly to practice in a yoga studio that overlooks the ocean! The kitchen and office staff are incredible. And the FOOD is delicious every meal farm to table. ~ Azlisa

Event Highlights

  • What makes Blue Osa a superior yoga center are the many yoga spaces you can encounter throughout the property: the Ganesh temple, the re-birth labyrinth, the Buddha statue, shrines and places to sit for quiet reflection.
  • Central to the small yogic displays through the grounds, you will find our yoga deck. Surrounded by lush architectural gardens and the sounds of crashing waves, our elevated yoga deck is a stunning place to practice for a world-class sensory experience.
  • Calming yet vibrant, serene yet energetic, there is no better place to unplug and connect than Blue Osa.
  • While hatha yoga is at the core of what we do, we differentiate ourselves by offering a holistic approach to yoga that emphasizes function over form. We believe yoga should be tailored to the individual. The Blue Osa methodology has been influenced by multiple traditions, including Vinyasa, Iyengar and Anusara yoga.

Menu/Cuisine

At Blue Osa we believe that nutritious, wholesome food is not only the foundation for a productive life but is also essential for a happy one. Food that nourishes our soul not only needs to be healthy, but it also needs to be tasty and delicious! Blue Osa is devoted to serving the freshest ingredients possible that are delivered daily to our kitchen.

Our locally-sourced red snapper and mahi-mahi are freshly-caught by neighboring fishermen. Whether it’s pineapple from the Blue Osa property or eggs from the farmers down the road, all produce supports the local economy.

Loving hands knead homemade bread, gardeners gather herbs from the greenhouse, and knowledgeable chefs create a gourmet menu under the guidance of Chef Marie.

This is truly a “farm to table” dining experience.

Accommodations

With 12 rooms and a capacity for 32 guests, this intimate beachfront eco-resort offers the ultimate sanctuary if you’re seeking solace from the hectic world. Nestled off-the-beaten-path in the virgin Costa Rican rainforest of the Southern Osa Peninsula, guests have an endless selection of quiet places to meditate and reflect. Only 50 meters away from the waves, you can see the private beach while practicing yoga from our elegantly designed second floor Yoga Studio. Onsite, there is also a chemical-free lap pool for an afternoon swim.

Directions

Blue Osa is located about 8 miles (11 km) south of Puerto Jimenez on the Osa Peninsula of Costa Rica which National Geographic Magazine labeled “the most biologically intense place on Earth.” We are nearest to the border of the world-renowned Corcovado National Park and on the warm shores of the Golfo Dulce. While visiting our tropical eco-resort you are likely to spot some of Costa Rica’s shyest and most endangered rainforest inhabitants, including the red-backed squirrel monkey, scarlet macaws, harpy eagles, and maybe even a jaguar.

Thank you!

We're glad you've joined our retreat community. See you around :)

Why Retreat?

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

My inspiration is a desire to gain a deeper connection to and understanding of myself, something that I've been working hard on for so long and will continue to do in the future. I view a retreat as a wonderful way to focus entirely on this without the distractions of every day life! Nicola

Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health.
