jungle spirit yoga retreat
The Costa Rica Yoga Spa, Nosara, Costa Rica
February 21-27, 2015
Imagine spending 7 days and 6 nights of uninterrupted yogic bliss in one of the world's 5 Blue Zones; a place where people live longer than anywhere else in the world. The retreat includes 6 nights of jungle accommodation at a surreal farm lodge, as well as 3 fresh organic meals daily, 2 daily all-levels yoga classes in an open air palapa, and 1 daily beach excursion.
Nestled between two magical rivers, The Costa Rica Yoga Spa was voted the #1 hotel in Nosara, Costa Rica by Trip Advisor for the past two years. While staying at the Jungle Spirit Yoga Retreat, guests can choose from private, semi-private and shared accommodations. Located a short drive from multiple beaches, the Yoga Spa overlooks a National Park.
The comfortable shared accommodations on the lower level have two bunk beds each, a separate desk and sitting area and separate closets for each guest. These rooms open on to an ocean view veranda with hammocks - ideal for viewing sunsets. The shared bathrooms are modern, very spacious and environmentally friendly.
Private suites upstairs offer spacious covered patio balconies with spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean—a perfect place to sip your fresh morning coffee and greet the day.
The Costa Rica Yoga Spa also has an open-air kitchen and dining area, a delightful dipping pool overlooking the ocean and river basin, a poolside lounge area, hammocks for down time, and a telescope for stargazing at night. Services include WiFi, maid service, laundry service and more.
HEALTHY LOCAL FOOD:
At the Jungle Lodge the amazing chefs Xinia, Nieves, Cherie, Big Tony—and an occasional special guest chef—serve fresh, healthy and wholesome family-style meals with a local flair. They specialize in gourmet organic vegetarian cuisine and can accommodate special dietary requests. Most of the food is locally-sourced, some of which is grown right on the finca in the organic gardens. Please note that our final dinner is not included in the package price; we will be going out to a medium-priced local restaurant on our final evening together.
Laura will be leading 2 yoga classes a day. The morning class will be more vigorous in nature and the evening class will be more gentle and restorative. The classes will average 1.5 hours each and may include asana practice, pranyama, lecture, and meditation. The classes are suitable for all ages, levels, and experience of yoga student. Please advise Laura of any injuries or health concerns upon arrival at the retreat.
