Spend your time in Costa Rica deepening your Pilates practice through intensive study and practice. Each day you will cover a different anatomical structure of the body and then learn how to strengthen that structure through an intensive Pilates mat class. Your afternoons will be free filled with beach excursions, waterfall hikes, and a jungle-spa day along with one therapeutic massage to help your body recover from all your built up winter stresses all set in the beautiful mountains of Costa Rica's West Coast.
Selva Armonia or “harmonious jungle" provides exceptional retreat space deep in the rainforest of Costa Rica, overlooking the South Pacific Ocean. It is a true eco-lodge combining elegance with a natural atmosphere in a breathtaking jungle setting. This space is used for world-class teachers, healers, yogis, facilitators, and nature-enthusiasts to celebrate and share their gifts and teachings with others.
You will find yourself removed from the mundane. With a breathtaking view of the famous Whale’s Tail in the Pacific Ocean, Selva Armonia Retreat Center & Eco-Lodge is a private and sacred space with an open-air “floating” bamboo yoga deck surrounded by peace-invoking edible and botanical gardens.
