You find connection and community among women, and a deeper presence, trust and resilience. All supported by the land, delicious nourishing organic vegan or vegetarian food, and two experienced coaches and teachers.

Venue Highlights

Nestled between the magical waters of the Rio Montaña and the Rio Nosara, our hosts at the Costa Rica Yoga Spa enjoy the breath-taking beauty of Costa Rica's coastal Blue Zone. A Blue Zone is a concept used to identify a geographic area of the world where more people live to be centenarians (past 100 years) than elsewhere. You have the most spectacular views of the forest and ocean below, not to mention the gorgeous sunsets, and plentiful friendly wildlife.

The Costa Rica Yoga Spa has been awarded the TripAdvisor Green Leaders award for their efforts for several years running. They have solar panels, a sweat lodge, an on-site permaculture garden that produces herbs and vegetables used in their wide variety of (soon to be famous!) gourmet organic vegetarian meals.

Why Retreat?

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

This sounds like a dream! I am an education student and I have spent way too much time working all summer to pay for school. My boyfriend of 5 years is a government firefighter and has been away working most of the summer. His 30th Birthday and our 6th anniversary is coming up this winter, we would love to celebrate with a yoga retreat! We both love yoga but have barley had time to practice in the past few months. Keeping our fingers crossed! Jaimee and Dan
