Playa Hermosa, Cost Rica 2018

February 4 - 11--Retreat and Outdoor Activities


How do we use our life experiences to awaken and deepen our understanding of our humanity and our spirituality? Going on retreat can help us reconcile our secular life with the sacred.  On retreat, we take the time to care for and connect with the body that is the instrument through which our life and creativity flows.   We will stay at Vida Asana Eco-Retreat and Yoga Center, an oasis tucked away in the rainforest, a kilometer from the beach. Playa Hermosa, in the Puntaneras region, is a quiet surfing community, located between the beach towns of Jaco and Manuel Antonio, about 90 minutes south of San Jose (SJO) airport. This location allows you to enjoy a wide range of activities—beach-combing, hiking, surfing, paddle-boarding and jungle excursions—IF you choose to venture off of the serene, paradise-like property! Our hosts, Sean and Jessica McDonald, along with their daughter Julep, want their guests to enjoy a simple and mindful experience that is often lacking in their daily lives. They encourage their guests to soak up the sounds, smells, and visually appealing landscape, while letting go and allowing their soul room to breath.

Our mornings will begin with yoga and meditation. Following breakfast, the day is yours to explore or relax.  We can help arrange excursions, or make suggestions for restorative “activities”.  After sunset at the beach and a delicious, lovingly prepared dinner, we can join in the common area for cards or conversation, and for four of our evenings, we will have satsungs–“gatherings”.

In our evening satsungs, we will explore poetry, mantra and music.

This retreat is appropriate for yogis of all levels, abilities and experience.
