    AHKI is a boutique retreat with big energy, hosting only one group at a time. What is so unique about AHKI 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. A true, Vastu built dwelling helps to maximize the flow of positive, healing energy throughout.

    AHKI Retreat is an intimate yet spacious facility. Nestled amongst the trees along a mountain ridge and infused with simple elegance, their two large cabinas, just a short walk down from the main house, offer six, sizable, guest rooms that can accommodate up to three people per room. All rooms have ceiling fans, large windows, and doors, as well as plenty of overhead ventilation for optimal airflow.

    Each room has a private bath with a large unique and luxurious indoor / outdoor shower, as well as patios and decks that command stellar views of the mountains and valleys. The accommodation also includes private baths with large, luxurious indoor / outdoor showers, fine linens, US style on-demand heaters for reliable, safe, environmentally-friendly hot water, handcrafted Costa Rican hardwood furniture made by local artisans, and daily housekeeping.

    Free Wi-Fi is available (at the main house only) for those who need to stay connected and there is a large 42-inch flat screen TV and DVD player for movies and training videos. You can use all the facilities in the 5-acre property such as salt-water pool, library / game room, and yoga hall. Shampoo, conditioner, body wash, pool towels and beach towels, as well as yoga mats and props, are provided.

    The shala

    AHKI's 750-square-foot covered, open-air studio overlooks the ocean, mountains, and valleys, as well as the beautifully landscaped courtyard and mountainside, infinity pool. A teak-wood floor (with planetary gemstones intentionally installed beneath to connect the above to the below) offers a forgiving surface for all kinds of bodies and practices. A prop closet is filled with mats, blocks, blankets, straps, sandbags, bolsters and back-jacks. For musical enjoyment, facilitators can enjoy their Bluetooth surround sound system.

    The library

    The library is a cozy living room filled with books and games. Whether you are curling up with a book, sharing in a board game, watching a video or enjoying an intimate chat with a new friend, you will no doubt slip into the home-away-from-home vibe. Of all their many nooks and crannies to sink into, and as hard as it is to choose, many people have said this is their favorite spot.

    The pool

    AHKI has constructed a pool as a true testament to the healing powers of water, which is intentionally placed in the northeast corner of the house's mandala, the most auspicious location for the water element in Vastu. The pool is spectacular. Whether sitting in contemplation on one of the nearby day beds or floating under the stars, you will find the infinity edge, salt water swimming / reflecting pool a grounding and nurturing experience.

    The day will start with a mindfulness walk and a Vinyasa flow yoga class that will invigorate you for the day ahead. After breakfast, the rest of the afternoon is yours to explore, surf, horseback ride, zip line, relax at the pool or beach, or whatever your heart desires. There will be an evening yoga practice followed by dinner with a meditation or yoga Nidra to end your day.

    This retreat will take place at AHKI Retreat where there is lush green mountains, blue ocean waters of the pacific, and plenty of sunshine. There, discover the magic of Nosara located in one of the five blue zones of the planet where the environment is the purest.

    AHKI Retreat is located on the Pacific Northwest coast of the Nicoya Peninsula in the Guanacaste region. It is located 11 kilometers south of Nosara, home of the internationally acclaimed Nosara Yoga Institute.

    AHKI Retreat is only 3 kilometers away from Garza, a quaint fishing village with a lovely beach where you'll find more ticos (locals) than tourists. Another 8 kilometers north finds you in Nosara with Playa Guiones and Playa Pelada. There, you can experience wonderful restaurants, shopping, various excursions, and some of the finest surfing in the country.
