During this retreat, you will be staying for four nights at the Encantada Ocean Cottages, in Esterillos Este, Costa Rica. This private boutique retreat center provides healthy and fresh meals inspired by local flavors, beautiful grounds for your yoga practice and beach and pool access to refresh and unwind.

The Encantada Ocean Cottages is a boutique, family-owned retreat center in Esterillos Este, Costa Rica (less than two hours from San Jose International Airport (SJO)). The individual spacious cottages sleep two - four people and are just steps away from the pristine beach, relaxing swimming pool, and peaceful yoga patio. Rooms are shared with one - two others (everyone has their own beds). You can inquire for a private room which may be available for an additional fee. Also, on the property are beach volleyball, boogie boarding, and massage services (extra cost).

Rebecca’s yoga teaching style focuses heavily on alignment and even breathing without losing the element of fun and humor. She wants students to feel comfortable and at ease during their practice while still challenging them to take their practice further each class.
