    The yoga class in Perfect Sunset School will challenge you physically and mostly mentally because there is an opportunity to increase self-awareness, knowledge, and joy.The yoga lessons are five- minutes walking distance from the school into the most beautiful place to practice yoga around. As committed students of yoga, the instructors began to notice, with curiosity and awe, subtle yet profound awakenings in their daily lives. These shifts occurred on so many different levels, appearing spontaneously, and increasing your connection to life and spirit that they began to feel happier.

    Vinyasa yoga

    There are four basic definitions of Vinyasa. The first is the linking of body movement with breath. The second is a specific sequence of breath-synchronized movements used to transition between sustained postures. The third is setting an intention for one’s personal yoga practice and taking the necessary steps toward reaching that goal and the last is a type of yoga class.

    Sridaiva yoga

    What is the bowspring? The bowspring is a dynamically balanced posture and ideal spinal shape for all of your daily life’s activities. It considers enhancing your capacity in ordinary tasks like walking, sitting, housework, and even more specialized activities like yoga, jogging, or any athletics. The goal of the bowspring alignment is to achieve tensile strength and rooted lightness in any movement while using the least amount of physical energy. The bowspring offers a new view on body alignment that keeps you living more healthfully at any age and cultivates graceful lightness and whole body strength.

    Restorative yoga

    Restorative yoga is particularly effective for those who feel weak, fatigued, or beat up from surfing. This is a gentle practice and it is accessible for everyone. It's a great way to relax after an action packed day in Costa Rica.

    You will get a chance to enjoy a tour to Montezuma Waterfalls (usually on Friday).

    If you can imagine beaches, waves, mountains, lakes, volcanoes, jungles, rivers, cloud forests, exotic plants, and animals of every kind, odds are you will find it in Costa Rica. It is a country that will not only surround you with unequivocal beauty, but also one whose people will immediately welcome you as a friend and make you feel at home.

    Costa Rica has a beach to meet your every desire. You can picture yourself surrounded by palm trees, hammocks, and a peaceful ocean breeze. Depending upon your location, you’ll relax on white, grey, or black sand beaches met by the cool, crystal clear blue waters of the Pacific Ocean or the Caribbean where viewing exotic marine life is a daily event.

    When you are in Costa Rica, it’s not long before you begin to realize that you have left the “ordinary” far behind. From the Osa Peninsula to the Nicaraguan border, the Pacific coast offers you every type of opportunity you can imagine to enjoy your vacation.

    This package does not include meals, but there are many options you can choose from around the place. Two of the best restaurants are within walking distance. There is also a little kitchen where you can cook your own meal. You can find a restaurant really close.

      "I had an amazing experience staying at perfect sunset school in Playa Hermosa! Playa Hermosa is an amazing place just outside Santa Teresa, it is less busy and you will fell the community spirit. The beach is one of the most beautiful ones I have seen with amazing waves. I had yoga class everyday and it was some of the best classes I had in my life, the teacher Nancy is amazing and every lessons is different from the last one. The best part of Perfect Sunset School is the amazing people working here that took great care of us everyday and both Gustavo and Augusto invited us to spend time with them and took us to amazing places and great restaurants. You felt very welcome and this makes Perfect Sunset School so much more than just another hotel. "


      "This is the perfect place to come for vacation because it is beautiful, lots of things to do such as surfing, yoga and exploring waterfalls so on as well as having a great atmosphere."

      "WOW! Is the best word I can describe the school! I stayed a month at the school to surf and practice my Spanish more. The surf is far out better than Santa Teresa, not crowded and super fun! The school is at the perfect location to escape from the busy Santa Teresa and relax. I made a lot of friends here because it's so small and local, you really get to know everybody in town! Gustavo is the best guy ever! He is a really good surfer and he makes you feel at home! There are several cool things to do around Playa Hermosa: tide pool, Montezuma falls, Quad riding and more! I miss my time at the school so much.....!! Only good vibes at the school! I know for %100 that I'm coming back next year! Perfect Sunset School you ROCK!!!!"

      "Gustavo was a super fun and engaging teacher for my entire family. We spent two weeks in Playa Hermosa near Santa Teresa, and Gustavo came to our house to teach my wife and I and our three teenage children. We all learned a ton and from the first day Gustavo truly became our friend. He's very casual and relaxed in his teaching style and was able to accommodate our wide range of ages quite well! "

      "I would highly recommend Gustavo and The Perfect Sunset School to anyone wanting an amazing Spanish immersion in a super beautiful part of Costa Rica. The surfing is awesome as well!!"

      "I took Spanish classes in different countries when travelling in Central and South American and Gustavo's were by far the best! And besides being a great teacher, he is also a great person to hang out with and a great guide. I didn't stay at the school but the location is great, super close to the best beach to surf in the area (and very good for beginners as well). Highly recommend it and if you're in Santa Teresa area and want to learn Spanish this is the place to go!"

      "The sun, the beach, the people and everything had been great. We spent our vacation with my companion about 10 days in a private room and it was super silent, except for the sounds of the jungle, for those who live in big cities. All services had been excellent. The beach, the waves, and the teachers were perfect. I enjoyed the yoga classes and the excursions to the waterfall and jungle treks. The guys who organize everything were very friendly and cheerful, and always ready to help. It was a 100% happy experience. I will definitely be coming back! "

      "I took two weeks of classes at Perfect Sunset School and was very satisfied. I love the small groups, great teaching methods, good location of the school, and the great support from the staff. Moreover, we went to waterfalls, amazing secret spots like an infinity pool into the mountain, and cool restaurants. The place had a lot of local spirit. It was the best beach break for beginners and intermediate surfers because of the empty line up and clean waves. I will come back for sure! Thanks to Augusto and Gustavo for everything."

      "Our family, with 13, 10, and 7-year-old kids spent over 2 weeks with Gustavo and the crew for surf and Spanish lessons. Gustavo was very accommodating and flexible. He worked great with the kids and parents, and even helped me change a flat tire on my car! He obviously loves to surf. The Spanish lessons are great for everyone as well. "
