Slow Down, Refine, & Awaken: Costa Rican Yoga Retreat w/ Kristin

  • Playa Uvita, Costa Rica
  • Apr 11 - 18, 2020 (8 days)
“Kristin’s teaching combines the principles of proper alignment with a flow that requires mindfulness and core strength. It is this strict attention to mindfulness that brings you deeper into your practice. She inspires a sense of community and commitment that automatically moves you to keep reaching higher and deeper levels in your practice.” -Laurie L., Yoga Student “Kristin is knowledgable and takes the time to make sure each class is tailored to the students she sees walk through the door to practice. The classes challenge the students who want to be challenged, but gives the developing yogi the time and space to grow in their practice.” -Joan P., Yoga Student “Kristin is so full of knowledge regarding alignment and asana, the philosophy of yoga and intelligent sequencing. Her passion for all aspects of yoga is apparent in her teaching and as a result it was really fun, easy and interesting to learn from her.” -Amy R., Yoga Student

Event Highlights

  • Every retreat is unique and, as such, the itineraries are ever-changing! We finalize the itineraries about 3-6 weeks before the retreat, but after 10 years of hosting retreats, we do have a general idea of what most schedules look like.
  • Costa Rica Yoga Retreats
  • Most retreats include one-to-two daily yoga classes. One class takes place in the morning, either just before or just after breakfast. After the first class and meal, you have free time to explore, relax, or take part in optional add-on activities. Lunch (if included in your retreat) will take place midday, during this free time. There is then, usually, an afternoon class followed by dinner. Occasionally some teachers choose to offer an evening restorative class or group gathering after dinner as well.
  • In addition, there is usually one dedicated “excursion day” in which we do not have scheduled yoga classes. This is a day for people to take advantage of some of the more involved tour and excursion offerings and is always a lot of fun!

Accommodations

Beautiful, eco-friendly accommodations situated amidst acres of lush gardens, hiking trails, and a secluded jungle trail leading to Playa Uvita, a beautiful beach (only a 15-minute walk). The atmosphere of the retreat center is simple, healthy, and relaxed. Rooms are single or double occupancy. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are prepared daily and include healthy vegetarian options along with fish and/or chicken. The food is organic when available and prepared with nourishing ingredients.

Gorgeous bungalow style accommodations all with huge ocean views, where you can see Ballena National Marine Park, the rainforest, and much more. All of the rooms are made from reforested wood from our trees planted on the same land 20 years ago. The architecture includes local craftsmanship using wood, stone, shell, and sand.
