Costa Rica Retreat – A Mindful Vacation

Pura Vida Friends!

Join us October 7 – 13th for 6 days and 5 nights of an all-inclusive retreat experience at the Goddess Garden Eco – Resort on the beautiful Caribbean coast of Costa Rica!

From taking time to relax on the beach, decompressing during Classical Hatha Yoga sessions or embarking on an excursion to the Cahuita National Park, this 6-day journey will be full of joy and harmony.

The purpose of this retreat is to revive, relax and revitalize. To bring yourself to a state where you experience life more intensely, not just on the surface. The ancient Yogic practices will bring balance, physical strength and flexibility into your system. Each day of the retreat we will be focused on practices which allow you to cleanse and balance the five elements which constitute the human body. We will also offer afternoon activities for the group to bond, explore and experience the beauty of Cahuita.

All levels of yogis are welcome. We will lead practices in a way that meets each practitioner at their own level of comfort. Whether you are brand new to yoga, or an experienced practitioner, you will find both the opportunity to safely challenge yourself and to deeply relax and rejuvenate.

About The Yoga

Learn authentic, powerful and ancient yogic techniques. You will be guided by Isha Hatha Yoga teachers, who have undergone 1750 hours of intensive full-time teacher training. The retreat will equip you with take-home practices for life. These can easily be integrated into your daily routine to bring an overall wellbeing.

At Isha, yoga is taught in its full depth and dimension and communicated on an experiential level. The programs involve simple postures, meditation and powerful ways of transforming one’s energies.
