Blue Osa Yoga Retreat & Spa
Blue Osa Yoga Retreat and Spa is the perfect place to rejuvenate through the practice of yoga. Yoga is the at the foundation of Blue Osa. From the friendly smiles of the staff who know your name, to the way the bread is baked from scratch daily, everything is done mindfully with love. With 12 rooms and a capacity for 32 guests, this intimate beachfront eco-resort offers the ultimate sanctuary if you’re seeking solace from the hectic world. Nestled off-the-beaten-path in the virgin Costa Rican rainforest of the Southern Osa Peninsula, guests have an endless selection of quiet places to meditate and reflect. Only 50 meters away from the waves, you can see the private beach while practicing yoga from our elegantly designed second floor Yoga Studio. Onsite, there is also a chemical-free lap pool for an afternoon swim.
Yogic not only in design, Blue Osa encourages guests to be mindful by implementing a morning silence to a pre-dinner ritual of presenting the food during their freshly prepared organic farm-to-table communal meals. Napkin rings with guests names are rotated at the dinner table each night to encourage mixing and mingling. For full relaxation, there is also a full service eco-spa offering locally sourced fruit facials and body scrubs. Massage practitioners offering therapies such as Watsu and Deep Tissue Massage. A Chinese Medicine acupuncturist is also available. Built from the ground up as a sustainable micro-grid that runs mostly on solar-power, Blue Osa intends to leave the smallest carbon footprint possible for a property of their size. In living in harmony with the environment, guests are able to experience true mindful living in balance with the earth.See more events in this venue
