Contact Yoga is excited to be hosting their retreat at Brave Earth who have been implementing beautiful permaculture and biomimicry design.

Farm Loft

This light-drenched space consists of two private double rooms on the first floor plus four semi-private single rooms on the top level. The common area is comfortable, spacious, and its decor is inspired by the jungle just outside your doorstep. Steps away are shared facilities including two toilets and a beautiful jungle shower.

Earth Tambos and Gaia Domes

Beautifully crafted earthen and air-crete domes, Earth Tambos are beautiful adobe structures made from deep red clay and bamboo harvested from the land. Gaia Domes are built using a pioneering, sustainable, masonry material called AirCrete. These stand-alone structures help you feel grounded and spacious.


Contact Yoga has taken special care to host their retreat at an extraordinary center that prioritizes sustainable design in harmony with the environment. You will have plenty of time to explore the property and learn about the systems they and their neighbors have put in place with biodynamic farming, biomimicry, and natural design.

You'll immerse in the elements by touring an award-winning cacao farm, exploring the pristine local waterfall and river, and adventuring up to the thermal baths near the volcano. Take this unique opportunity to experience the power of the elements while deepening your yoga and wellness practice. Limited space, so reserve your spot today!

The practice

Contact Yoga invites you to join them for this amazing opportunity to study and explore new inner and outer terrain in beautiful Costa Rica! You can expect heart-felt, all-levels morning yoga classes themed with the elements to revitalize the body and provide space for reflection and nourishment.

Afternoon sessions will feature our signature Contact Yoga classes weaving together practices from partner yoga, contact improv, and Thai massage. These classes are accessible to all levels and open to singles and couples. Both Contact Yoga's movement and bodywork teaching are framed by the Buddhist principle of Metta (loving-kindness) and the Chinese five elements.

You will come away with powerful insights and new somatic tools to balance your body that you can take back home and incorporate into your practice or daily routine. To support your integration upon returning home, Contact Yoga will provide you with a series of videos that will allow you to seamlessly continue the practice.
