7 Day Yoga Retreat in Guanacaste

Malayka Retreat Center, Playa Bejuco, Nicoya Peninsula, Guanacaste Province, Costa Rica

Spiritual Yoga Retreat in Costa Rica

Join Crystal Gray and the Yoga Goddess Academy team in this transformative yoga retreat in beautiful Costa Rica. With views of the ocean and a short drive to the beach, you'll spend your time getting in tune with what you need to let go so you can make space for what you want to call into your life. And if you're a yoga teacher, you're in luck! Crystal will offer four workshops geared towards helping newer teachers feel more confident in their skills. Not a teacher? No problem! Relaxa by the pool or lay in the hammock during those workshops. Don't worry, there will be as much or as little for you to do as you like! Crystal has coached many yogis in her programs on how to live a more confident and empowered life. She helps participants draw out their natural gifts so they can shine their unique light in the world. Not only will there be daily yoga with themes set around helping you live your best life, there will also be art therapy to help you process any emotions that come up during the retreat. You'll connect deeply to Mother Earth, your Spirit, your tribe, and Source to make magic and manifest your best life. It's time to start living the life you were meant to - if not now, when?

Retreat location

Set in the jungle, Malayka Retreat Center looks over the ocean. You get the best of both worlds here! Listen to the howler monkeys during morning yoga and meditation then explore the beach during the daily trip to the beach to end the day. Secluded but not isolated, you'll feel just far enough away from it all at the stunning location. The group will take one afternoon to explore the nearby hidden gem of a town, Samara, where you'll dine and have time to shop for souvenirs and presents.
