"Yoga, nature, wildlife and new friends"

I received unimaginably thoughtful 1-1 yoga teacher instruction and practices 2x/day. The courses were both well-designed and flexible. Daniela is very knowledgeable and passionate about energy healing through yin yoga. We added on a short yang yoga 2-day as well, allowing me to get an understanding of sequencing yin yang for meridian and chakra based healing through asanas... so amazing. I was treated with such respect and care. I feel much more confident thanks to her guidance and compassion!

The location is simply magical and healing in its own right. While there I experienced one sloth coming through close I could’ve touched her! There were watusas, giant butterflies, tropical frogs, birds and 2 cuddly cats and a sloth high up in a tree that called Vista Verde home. The staff were so helpful and friendly; we became friends. My breakfasts were especially delicious and made with such love. I just left yesterday and already miss this place and its people and animals.

The instructor, yoga training, staff and environment provide everything one needs for a transformative and healing experience. To manifest this: be present, be still, see, listen and open up. This training is surely one of the yoga world’s best kept secrets!

I LOVED being here <3 what a lovely space - very welcoming, clean and comforting. Daniela is an incredible teacher <3 I absolutely recommend this training, and property in general even if you're not taking the retreat. Daniela and Francesco are wonderful hosts and I wish I didn't have to leave!

"Great tropical spot and a wonderful instructor "

Daniela was amazing. Super sweet soul and embodies what a yoga teacher is meant to be. She was flexible with the schedule when we explained we needed an earlier date too. The class was well structured, informative, gentle but challenging enough. I left feeling like I got more than what I had hoped for.

"A solid private yoga teacher training"

Daniela is an excellent, excellent, did I say excellent already? teacher. She gives useful and honest feedback which I liked. She even modified the lessons somewhat to match my learning style, which was great.

Had a very relaxing time here. Daniela is a wonderful instructor and I really enjoyed the yoga/meditation classes with her. The guesthouse is very close to the beach, so after the morning class, I just went to the beach and have a relaxing and quiet rest of the day. The guesthouse is very comfortable and everyone were very friendly. The breakfast is also quite lovely. I went on this retreat looking for some place to find some peace and relaxation and I think that is exactly what I found.

"Yoga Journey in Costa Rica"

Daniela was a great host/ yoga instructor. She made us feel very welcome from the first moment we stepped into the retreat. She was very quick to respond to our questions. Yoga classes were tailor to our needs. We had a very relaxing experience and the breakfast was healthy and delicious! The yoga retreat was in a great location. We were only a few minutes walk from the beach, great restaurants and shops. We are very glad we chose this place as our yoga retreat. We are looking forward to coming back again.

"An amazing adventure"

The place was so nice, right across from the beach and close to several great places to eat. Daniela, Francesco and Juan were very welcoming and made the place feel like home. The yoga was transforming and done in a beautiful location:)

"Unvergessliches Erlebnis"

Daniela ist eine sehr sensible und professionelle Yogalehrerin, die mich stets gefordert und unterstützt hat. Ich hatte das Glück Einzelunterricht zu bekommen und das führte zu einer tollen emotionalen Bindung.

Weiter muss das exzellente Fruehstueck erwähnt werden, sehr reichhaltig und stets etwas variiert.

Der Aufenthalt wird unvergesslich bleiben.
