I am so excited to announce our Spring 2016 yoga retreat in Costa Rica!
Costa Rica holds such a special place in my heart, which is why I seem to find my way back year after year. This retreat will be different from any other we've done in Costa Rica before because we'll be staying in Playa Hermosa - just a short bike ride away from the beach. We'll be at an amazing eco boutique hotel with a dedicated yoga space. All meals are included as well as transfers from the airport. There will lots of down time so you can read and relax, or so you can take off and explore with your newfound friends.
I have to say, one of the best parts of leading these retreats is seeing the friendships that blossom from the trip. One pair of friends who met while on a Costa Rica retreat with me recently paired up again to go to Amsterdam! How awesome is that?!
We often get emails with concerns about traveling alone, and I always let people know that the majority of people travel alone which is fun because everyone becomes fast friends. By the end of the week, you feel like you've known these people for years.
The other concern that's usually addressed is the level of background yoga experience that's required, and I always let people know that no prior yoga experience is necessary. Prepare to be lovingly challenged so you can learn and grow, but know that you are encouraged to do what you need to do in order to have a good class. If you are exhausted, or for whatever reason just aren't up for pushing yourself and need to take child's pose for the entire class, then by all means, go for it. No ego, no worries, just do what you gotta do. That's the highest form of yoga.
