Pura Vida 2020: Yoga, Adventure, and Bliss

  • Santa Teresa Beach, Puntarenas Province, Costa Rica
  • Jan 26 - Feb 1, 2020 (7 days)

About This Event

Join Amy and Tracy to discover the true meaning of Pura Vida!

When translated, Pura Vida means “pure life” or “simple life” but in Costa Rica, it is more than just a saying—it is a WAY OF LIFE. We invite you to leave behind the busy-ness of your daily schedule with the intention of establishing a Pura Vida state of mind to carry you through 2020!

During the retreat, we will explore yoga through an uplifting Vinyasa Flow practice as we elevate our awareness and open our hearts to the beauty of Costa Rica. All classes will be geared to all levels of practitioners with modifications offered… beginners are very welcome! You will enjoy a sense of community and connection with others while accepting the opportunity to drop into your SELF. Throughout the week we will work to unveil the most vibrant, positive and HAPPIEST versions of ourselves!

We’ll also immerse ourselves in the beauty and culture of our surroundings. In our downtime, we’ll enjoy swimming in the Pacific Ocean (located right outside your door), relaxing by the pool, walking the beautiful coastline and eating deliciously prepared local cuisine.  You’ll also be given options for excursions like hiking through the rainforest, snorkeling off Tortuga Island, zip-lining over the treetops, horseback riding, and surf lessons…to name a few! Or maybe you’d prefer to relax with a massage at the on-site spa. The choice is yours.
