During this retreat, you will be staying in a private room in Essence Arenal Boutique Hostel. The eco-hostel has majestic views of the Arenal Volcano, the Arenal Lake, and the El Castillo Valley, which you can see from the hammocks spotted around the farm. There is a yoga deck, Jacuzzi, vegetarian restaurant, organic permaculture farm, and swimming pool. All beds have orthopedic mattresses and anti-allergic pillows.


Are you ready to deepen your yoga practice, transform your eating habits, and perception of life? Join Essence Arenal Hotel to learn to be more mindful, relaxed, and enjoying every second of your life!

In this holiday, you will have a yoga session once a day outdoors, with breathing techniques and guided meditation. During and after the retreat, you will become much more relaxed and less distracted by fleeting thoughts and you will be able to apply the newly learned skills in your everyday life.

Additionally, this retreat will be a total mind, body, and spirit change. As NLP master Tony Robbins said, "Change your perception, change your world, nothing in life has a meaning except the meaning you give to it, so let's start giving it a positive a productive meaning because the quality of our life is directly proportional to the quality of our communication so let's communicate to our brain and body in a way it can fulfill our dreams and make them a reality."

There are hiking trails on this 22-hectare property farm and rain forest. You can even sign up for a relaxing massage in the Spa after a magical hike. You will also have time for meditation, swimming, or anything you wish to do. You will even have a workshop where you learn the basics of designing your own practice. This experience will improve many aspects of your life as you will deepen your yoga practice.
