About us

Welcome to your Pura Vida experience! Join Heidi L. Audet, ERYT-500, NAMA-Certified Ayurvedic Health Counselor and outdoor adventurer for a week of building ojas through practices that bring peace, tranquility, exploration and fun! Now is the time to reconnect to nature, prepare to let the winter wash away and embrace the transition toward Spring wellness, all from the encouragement of the lush tropical Payagayo region of Costa Rica. Yoga’s sister science, Ayurveda, focuses on health and wellness. In Ayurveda we call the practices of rejuvenation “Building Ojas.” Ojas is your vital sap, your vitality. Papayago provides many opportunities for you to build your vitality and support your mental, physical and spiritual health.

Set on Papagayo Bay along the Pacific coast of Costa Rica, Secrets Papagayo Costa Rica sits on a black, volcanic sand beach. It’s coupled with lush, mountainous surroundings, making an ideal location for this unique and fulfilling yoga retreat offering with Heidi.

This is an upscale all-inclusive resort in a private and secure area. Unique bungalow-style suites tucked away in the hills, offering intimacy and beautiful ocean views. Single, double, and upon request triple occupancy suites are available.

All food and drinks are included, with chefs and restaurants familiar with many dietary needs. Upscale service allows rejuvenation time, self-care and reflection. View further guest inclusions and amenities above retreat pictures, below.
