Beat the Winter Blues early this year with a Yoga Adventure and Retreat to Costa Rica!
On Saturday, November 14th, make your way to San Jose- Costa Rica’s busy capital. Stay the night with us at Hotel Adventure Inn, conveniently close to the airport, with free shuttle service to and from the airport.
After a delicious breakfast and some downtime, we will board our own privately chartered plane with Nature Air to the Caribbean Coast. Upon arrival, we will be whisked out of the main town of Puerto Limon up the mountain to the Samasati Retreat and Rainforest Sanctuary.
You will be free to get acquainted with your home for the week and its luscious surroundings before we meet up for dinner. All meals are served buffet style, with a lovely variety of locally sourced food, including vegetarian and vegan options.
Each day will begin with a sunrise meditation and yoga practice outside while we salute the sun as it rises to greet us. All yoga classes are optional of course- this is your retreat! After breakfast you will be free to lounge in the hammocks, receive a massage or spa treatment, or take a nature hike. Enjoy the company of each other or indulge in your own solitude.
An afternoon /evening yoga class will be offered daily as well. There will be a total of four hours of playful and rejuvenating yoga offered daily with Rachael and Becca, with the exception of Wednesday. Wednesday is ‘Excursion Day’ and you may choose to surf, zip-line, go on an expert-led hike, explore the town and culture, or just sun-bathe at the beach. Of course you are free to stay at Samasati and have a nesting day if you prefer to retreat rather than adventure!
On Thursday & Friday we return to our yoga practice and enjoy our last days in this beautiful land! Saturday is a travel day to return home with all the gifts you discover in Costa Rica. Get your passport ready! Let the adventure begin!
Join Rebecca Niamtu & Rachael Goolsby for a week long rainforest adventure on Costa Rica's Caribbean coast- it's playful and rejuvenating!
