Root 2 Rise Yoga Retreat in Costa Rica Program

"Freedom to Flow" is calling you if:

  • You are an adventurous spirit seeking inspiration outside your daily routine.
  • Your inner child seeks playtime to explore the wonders of nature.
  • Your body or mind craves a recharge for optimal wellness.
  • You'd like to learn from the culture of one of the happiest countries in the world, as named by Happy Planet Index.
  • You'd like practical tools for awakening inner joy, regardless of rain or shine.

Picture yourself here

Lying in your king-sized luxurious bed, you eagerly awaken to the serenade of howling monkeys and melodic birdsongs as the rising sun shines over a luscious green jungle and ocean landscape beckoning you through wall-sized windows to come play outside. Like an 8-year-old ready to open birthday gifts, you flow with breath-taking awe into a day of hiking to waterfalls, savoring home cooked local meals, zip lining over vast aerial views of the rainforest, revitalizing with group yoga and meditation, wandering around town to practice your Spanish at the beach and souvenir market and making new friends at an after-dinner Latin Dance session or live-music cafe for wine and dessert. Unplugged, you reconnect to the life force that sustains all humanity and nature. Each day a new inspiration awakens your soul to pure life and you deeply know why this place, this experience, these beings, and your life are special.

You just have to have been there to know. And the best thing is, the journey doesn't end when you leave Costa Rica; Pura Vida is a free, most meaningful souvenir you can share with your loved ones when you return home.

  • Unplug and detoxify from big-city life, bathing your senses in the fresh rainforest, ocean air, and inspiring views of enchanting biodiverse wildlife - tropical jungle plants, exotic birds, mischievous monkeys, mesmerizing sloths, and much more.
  • Balance effort and ease - through guided inner work and free time to play - as you redefine your priorities and flow with pure life, or Pura Vida, Costa Rica’s motto, of living in the present moment, among other definitions you'll explore.
  • Discover and experience the insightful parallels between yoga philosophy and Pura Vida living as facilitated by your yoga teacher, who is a former Manuel Antonio resident passionate about Costa Rica and thankfully eager to share its life-enriching power.
  • Expand your global perspective and dive into Tico culture, creating heartfelt memories with locals and world travelers, both within and outside the tribe, while practicing or learning Spanish.
