Practice Deep. Play Big. Adventure Wild.
Join Victoria and Oso as we adventure to Costa Rica for a restorative retreat like no other. You work hard, you yearn for adventure and you focus on health and vitality. We’ll immerse in daily practice to reconnect with our internal rhythm and inner knowing, play in nature to reconnect with mother earth, and create community in an Ecoresort in the Caribbean jungle.
Jaco Jungle, Costa Rica (August 3-10, 2019)
The lush jungle of Playa Chiquita will be our home base, from which we will explore some of Costa Rica’s cultural, natural, and geographical landmarks. At Tierra De Suenos you can experience ecotourism at is very best. The lodge is surrounded by rainforest and is committed to preserving the pristine environment through conservation, preservation, and recycling. We’ll enjoy the nourishment of scrumptious vegetarian meals featuring freshly picked produce prepared by a local on-site chef.
Costa Rica is the perfect place to explore the rich earth and the vast sky as we find tangible connections to what grounds us here on earth and connects us to the source of all creation. At the heart of the practice of yoga lies the secret to living your fullest life. This experience is for all who wish to embody yoga and cultivate a deeper connection to the joys of living. We’ll begin with the foundation of our own practice that will ground us to the here and now, connecting us to community. Opening to the limitless possibilities of surrendering to the present moment, you will dive deep into your own yoga practice and experience all the adventures that nature has to offer.
Each bungalow is custom designed to belong in the environment. Each has its own bathroom, private deck, and unique setting. Both Private bungalows and small community bungalows are available.
Each day will begin with an early morning yoga practice lead by Victoria and/or Oso in the open air yoga deck. Breakfast follows morning yoga and then we get ready for the day’s activity. On three of the 7 days, we will go as a group to zip-line through the jungle canopy, hike into the headlands to a hidden waterfall, and learn to surf at a nearby beach. The other three days you are free to explore the local town (it’s a real village, not a tourist trap), visit other local attractions, catch more wavce, go horseback riding, kayaking, and more! We will wind down the day in the afternoon with a second yoga session to bring us back to community before dinner.
Evenings are for resting up for the next day, exploring the nearby towns, or learning more about the ancient wisdom stemming from the sages of India. Oso and Victoria will offer optional sessions on yogic living and Ayurvedic wellness as well as meditation and ritual for those that want to dive deeper into the limitless benefits available from the ancient wisdom of Yoga and Ayurvedic medicine.
