You will stay at Vida Asana Eco-Retreat and Yoga Center. You may choose to spend the nights in either a shared double room or single room. The hosts, Sean and Jessica McDonald along with their daughter Julep, want their guests to enjoy a simple and mindful experience that is often lacking in their daily lives. They encourage their guests to soak up the sounds, smells, and visually appealing landscape, while letting go and allowing their soul room to breathe.

Liz and Carrie will create a safe space and supportive sangha for asana, meditation, and workshop sessions. You will explore poetry, music, and creative expression as you deepen your personal practice and expand your experiences with asana, pranayama, meditation, and mantra.

Your mornings will begin with yoga and meditation. Following breakfast, the day is yours to explore or relax. The workshop sessions will be held later in the afternoon or as a satsung after dinner. This week is for you, so join in as much as you want, or as little. This retreat is appropriate for yogis of all levels, abilities and experience.

On this retreat, you will enjoy a day trip to Manuel Antonio National Park and beach.
