RENEW yourself in the warmth of the sun this winter along the beautiful beaches and lush rainforests of Costa Rica. Surrender to the natural rhythm of this tropical paradise while creating a special space for your yoga practice. We will focus on tapping into our own “flowing guidance” as we awake each day to the songs of the birds and we will wind down on our mats each evening, with the symphony of the jungle in full chorus as our backdrop.

Join us for a week long wellness getaway to enliven your mind, body and spirit.  Along with our daily yoga and meditation practice, we’ll carve out plenty of time for play and exploration of Costa Rica’s hidden gems._MG_4347
