  • Shae Sterrett

    Shae came to yoga about six years ago seeing it as a fitness routine she could work into her healthy lifestyle training for triathlons, running, biking, and general fitness. Today, she is a yoga and spin instructor by night, and a responsible business consultant by day under the name Shae Studios. Yoga has flourished in her life and become the cornerstone of her lifestyle today. She wants to share the love, joy, and peace of yoga with everyone around her. Whether you practice every day or you have never unrolled a yoga mat, she accepts, encourages, and invites anyone to join her.

This retreat will take place at Playa Hermosa, Costa Rica. Playa Hermosa is a quiet surfing community, located between the beach towns of Jaco and Manuel Antonio, about 90 minutes south of Juan Santamaría International Airport (SJO).

Surfing

The beaches of Jaco and Playa Hermosa are internationally known surf destinations. Jaco is primarily the domain of neophytes, who take advantage of the relatively calm and consistent wave produced at high tide, to learn in a safe environment.

Playa Hermosa produces powerful waves all year round. The three and a half mile beachfront opens up to swells from all directions. Playa Hermosa attracts top surfers from around the world, who come not only for the frequent surf contests but also to enjoy the consistent waves, warm water, and friendly community of Playa Hermosa.

You may also book zip lining and paddle boarding sessions, sign up for a visit to Manuel Antonio park, or join a group shaman hot house experience. Please let Shae Studios know if you would like to book any of the activities mentioned above.
