La Selva Movement + Sound Retreat

About us

Welcome to La Selva Movement + Sound Retreat in the rainforest of Caribbean Costa Rica!

In our week together we celebrate the balance of all things: stillness and movement, silence and sound, the ecstatic and quiet, the rumble of the Jungle and the soothing sonics of the Ocean.  We will practice a fusion of movement and sound medicines; ritualizing our day with dreamy hatha vinyasa sequencing, song circles, meditation and ceremony, with much space for free time for yourself.


Event Highlights

  • Daily yoga and ecstatic dance sessions.
  • Sound bath ceremonies.
  • Morning meditations.
  • Local vegetarian food (3 meals a day).
  • Use of hot tub and amenities.
  • Ocean views.

Venue Highlights

Perched 1400 feet above sea level in a lush tropical ecological reserve, Samasati will immerse you into one the most bio-diverse ecosystems on Earth.

Let the soothing sounds of the rainforest lull you to sleep and wake up to the calls of howler monkeys; lounge in a hammock on your terrace with views of lush vegetation and the Caribbean Sea. Enjoy our fresh, locally sourced food, sip a drink in the lounge or relax in the outdoor Jacuzzi. A short drive from the bottom of our mountain lies Puerto Viejo, a culturally rich Caribbean town with laid back vibes, delightful local cuisine and an unspoiled environment. Here you’ll find some of the best beaches, snorkelling and surf spots in the world.

Each day your adventures are fuelled with delicious, fresh meals and round the clock coffee and tea served in our open air restaurant. After sunset, fall asleep to the soothing sounds of the Rainforest and wake up refreshed to the breath-taking sight of sun reflecting off the ocean.

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.
