Life is about adventure. Through exploring the world we can also discover more about ourselves. Come join me on an exploration of the beautiful Costa Rican jungle and beach and find a deeper connection to yourself along the way. This 5 day, 4 night yoga retreat will offer the chance to unplug from life and tune in to your body and soul.
Morning and evening Vinyasa classes offered daily will provide nourishment for the physical body and the spirit with challenging and creative Vinyasa sequences, dynamic music and real life philosophy that can be applied every day. In addition, there will be two mindfulness workshops offered and we will explore the special powers of essential oils. When we aren’t practicing yoga or in workshops there will be plenty of time to explore this jungle paradise or just relax on the beach.
The retreat will be held at the Iguana Lodge; a four-star tropical beachfront resort in the remote jungles of the Osa Peninsula in Costa Rica. The resort sits on 15 acres of grounds and gardens including a Native Species Jungle Trail while being surrounded by the Playa Platanares Wildlife Refuge. Three species of monkeys reside at Iguana Lodge, as do numerous other mammals such as sloths, kinkajous, anteaters, raccoons, agoutis, etc. (The are 400 species of mammals on the Osa). Meanwhile crocodiles and many other sorts of other reptiles and amphibians live nearby (not too near).
In addition, the Iguana Lodge is situated on a six mile long gorgeous deserted stretch of beach made for swimming, boogie boarding, paddle boarding and kayaking and a there is a reef less than a half mile out. The warm water has Bioluminescence in the evenings so swimming becomes a Tinkerbell-esque experience.
Enjoy complimentary boogie boards and SUP boards in the warm Pacific Ocean, take out a complimentary kayak to explore the nearby reef, or head up the Platanares River and explore a gorgeous mangrove estuary. In addition, there are some great surf spots for all levels on the Osa, including the Matapalo area and Pavones. Guided jungle hikes, horseback riding, zip lining, tree climbing and waterfall rappelling, bird and monkey watching with the Iguana Lodge in house naturalist, are just some of the many adventures the area has to offer.
The Iguana Lodge has two incredible open air yoga studios and two award winning restaurants where we will enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner made with the freshest ingredients that Costa Rica has to offer. All meals are included in the price.
