Pura Vida Yoga Retreat
Santa Teresa, Costa Rica
24 July – 30 July 2022
Costa Rica is one the most beautiful and biodiverse countries on the planet, an ecological gem of tropical rainforests, rolling green hills and pristine beaches. Costa Rican culture is defined as Pura Vida, Pure Life, where the beauty and power of nature is the temple and sunlight is the soul.
Pranamar Villas offers a barefoot luxury boutique experience on the beautiful beach of Playa Hermosa, Santa Teresa. Stunning white sand beaches, lush vegetation, tropical forest and spectacular sunsets make an unforgettable setting for your retreat experience.
Pranamar Villas has been ecologically constructed with tropical simplicity in harmony with the beauty of nature. The villas are Balinese inspired architecture, built from bamboo, hardwood and stone. The buildings surround a river-lagoon theme pool, tropical gardens and beautiful beach.
The elegantly designed villas offer stunning nature and ocean views. Each villa has two air-conditioned bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living space and terrace. Decorated with hand-crafted Indonesian furniture, the villas inspire a naturally relaxed atmosphere. Luxurious granite stone tubs surrounded by tropical gardens give a unique, exotic touch to the open-air bathrooms.
On waking up in this stunning location, we will do a blissful sunrise sadhana in the Balinese Yoga Shala, surrounded by tropical gardens. Moving through beautiful sequencing and creative namaskars, we will explore Mythical Vinyasa Flow and inspired Dharma Yoga. These soulful practices create a sense of lightness and radiance, leaving you feeling lovingly uplifted and alive. In the afternoons, we will surrender to a restorative Yin Yoga practice, allowing your being to rest, renew and rejuvenate.
Pranamar’s restaurant has beautiful high bamboo ceilings, an exotic, relaxed atmosphere and serene views over the lagoon pool and gardens. The food is delicious, nutritious, creative and lovingly prepared to nourish the body and enliven the senses.
In your free time, relax by the pool, in the tropical gardens or walk along the white sand, banana-palm lined beach. You may wish to indulge in a luxurious massage. The Spa is set in blissful surroundings and offers a range of massage treatments. It is a sanctuary for total body relaxation and renewal.
Pranamar offers a wide variety of tours and activities. Santa Teresa is blessed with some of Costa Rica’s best surf spots and enjoys ocean swells year-round. You can experience high quality surf instruction and SUP paddle boarding. You can also visit beautiful Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve and Montezuma Waterfalls.
We will close each day together watching the stunning sun set into the Pacific Ocean, sharing gratitude for the Pura Vida of life.
We are blessed to retreat together in the pure beauty and power of nature in Costa Rica!
