AHKí Retreat, A Sanctuary for the Soul – Costa Rica
AHKí is an intimate yet spacious retreat nestled in 5.5 mountain acres on the Pacific North-West coast of Costa Rica. Imbued with lush, green mountainsides, blue ocean waters, plentiful sunshine and with it's accessible location, AHKí is the perfect destination for your retreats. As remote as AHKí feels, we are only minutes away from beaches, kayaking, horseback riding, world famous Nosara surfing, zip-lining, nature hikes, shopping, restaurants and more. What is so unique about AHKí is that it is a truly sacred space - built specifically according to the ancient science of Vastu Shastra, "the yoga of space", invoking peace, wellness and harmony - with the environment as well as within one's Self. Included in your retreat are accommodations, practice space with a closet full of props and 3 gourmet gluten/dairy free, vegetarian meals a day (fish & chicken options available).See more events in this venue
Join us for this 7 night, 6 day yoga and culinary retreat! You will have 5 days of comprehensive cooking and yoga classes focused on healthy, clean eating. Chef Daniela’s main goal is to bring awareness and understanding of how nutrition relates to our bodies and all aspects of our lives. By seeing food as more than just simply ingredients, we learn how to make the most out of their nutritional value and healing properties.
Expect to get started right away! On your first full day you will receive nutritional orientation focusing on the basic principles of clean and healthy eating. You will learn how to make basic recipes from scratch with ingredients such as plant based milks, nut butters, tahini and date paste, and gluten free flours. Of course you can get all those items at the store but making them at home will guarantee that they are organic, additive free and at the same time you will be able to reduce waste and lower the cost on your shopping list!

Daniela Mayorga, Chef, AHKi Retreat
People tend to forget and some things get lost in time, but the ability to bring back all those memories and use them as the basis of an idea is what makes us who we are today.
After culinary school and working in several restaurants, from fancy fast food to fine dining, I arrived to the Nosara area in 2014.
Once here and after settling down, I started to notice that big part of the community has a healthy lifestyle approach oriented to yoga, meditation, clean whole foods, spiritual healing and holistic treatments. With all the geographic and demographic advantages that this area has to offer, it’s easy for people to get inspired by nature in all possible ways, giving me the opportunity to integrate my early life experiences with fresh foods.
At AHKí, my mission is to take Mother Nature’s gifts and put them on a plate – not just to satisfy your hunger, but to feed your body while nourishing your soul!
