Imagine a day on the legendary healing waters on Playa (contact info blocked)

You wake up in bright and early to the sounds of the jungle, surrounded by mature jungle, mango trees and howler monkeys. You walk out your front door and take a few steps to our open air, yoga studio to a 2 hour morning sadhana with powerful flowing yoga, potent pranayama and meditation and blissful savasana listening to the sounds of the wildlife all around.

You emerge and walk with your sangha (yoga community) to breakfast which is made from local Costa Rican cuisine, the world famous blue zone, plant based, whole foods diet. Nourished.

You take time throughout the day to read, explore, swim in the ocean, have lunch with your new yoga friends, bask in nature, grab a smoothie from local restaurants, and have lunch with the group.

In the afternoon you head back to the yoga space for a restorative yoga practice with pranayama, meditation and a lengthy yoga nidra. You feel completely renewed, whole and at peace. You are becoming completely enchanted with the surroundings.

You walk to the ocean to watch the sun set, a ritual that the whole town takes part in. You swim and float in the beautiful oranges and reds, you smile. You are completely awake to the presence and beauty of life itself.

You join the group to walk to on of Nosara's famous restaurants for a holistic and nourishing meal together. You have the best sleep.

You wake up in the morning and do it all over again.

About This Event


A ONE WEEK TROPICAL YOGA (contact info blocked)  

This is an invitation to both new and dedicated yogis, nature lovers, meditation enthusiasts, yoga teachers, mermaids, travel junkies, and conscious women of all ages. We invite you to join us in the wild jungle of the Nicoya Peninsula and legendary, healing waters of the Pacific Ocean on Playa Guiones in Nosara, Costa Rica.    

We are so excited to share with you this rare opportunity to study with Ally Boothroyd and Tiina Kivinen together in person. A time to dive deep into personal sadhana (practice) and sangha (community), to recharge every layer of your Self.      

Rooted in our Kripalu lineage, this week-long soulful journey is a groundbreaking immersion for the modern day woman with daily yoga, pranayama, meditation, yoga nidra, connection with nature and earth & ocean ceremony. We invite you to celebrate the expression of life that is here right now, to heal deeply in the cocoon of conscious rest and the tropical surroundings and connect to your whole integrated Self. We invite you to re-enchant yourself with the magic of life and the beauty of the natural world.   

We would be honoured if you would join us for one week on the shores of the Pacific Ocean in Nosara, Costa (contact info blocked)  

"With Ally and Tiina, there are so many different elements of yoga coming together. It’s not just about asana. They are always bringing in wisdom from the Vedas, Ayurveda, Kirtan, Yoga Nidra, Sound Healing, Aromatherapy, Archetypal Wisdom, Mantras, Meditation, Chanting, Mudras, Reiki, Jnana Yoga, Karma Yoga, Restorative Yoga, 5 Rhythms, Energy Work and Integration of the Chakras. They are so all encompassing. You can start to really get a sense of how vast and full of wisdom these ancient sciences are."

Venue Highlights

Our location, Patitos is located right in the middle of town within wild rain forest at one of the few places where you can walk to the stores, yoga studios, and restaurants in town. The property is covered in magical mature trees of all kinds including three giant mango trees which means we have howler monkeys that visit almost daily! The rooms are all newly renovated and include shared kitchens & bathrooms, outdoor showers and access to the pool at cafe de paris right next door!


Our accomodations, "Patitos" include a small community of 3 homes tucked away on Playa Guiones. Just a 5 minute walk gets you to the beach with one of the most beautiful and consistent wave breaks in Costa Rica and the world. We have on site, a brand new, open air, yoga studio, with all the bells and whistles, fully stocked kitchens, and pool access at Cafe de Paris (the little cafe next door).

Why Retreat?

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

I teach yoga part time and am a mom of two toddlers full time. I love my life, but goodness do I need a break. My husband and I have been putting off our wedding ceremony for 4 years because life has gotten in the way. We haven't had a single night alone since our family has grown. I wouldn't change a thing about our lives now, but it would be so wonderful to remember what it's like to 'just be us.' Antrim

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.
