An easy 25-minute drive from the international airport, the lush tropical gardens, cozy sitting nooks and spectacular views create a sanctuary for the soul.

Recover from the holidays and the stresses of your life by beating the winter blues in the beautiful country of Costa Rica.  During this Kripalu Yoga and mindfulness retreat, you will have an opportunity to slow down, take a few deep breaths, and soak in the beauty of the present moment. 

In the sacred space we create together you can allow your spirit to slowly Costa Rica Pura Vida poolawaken and reconnect with the simple joy of being fully alive.
Kripalu Yoga is much more than a physical discipline. Kripalu Yoga is a practice of transformation - a way to open the heart, find clarity and experience stillness within. Mindfulness is about living consciously with kindness and compassion. Both yoga and mindfulness emphasize listening to the body's needs and respecting its limits. This approach allows each of us, beginner or experienced, to receive the benefits of the practice and make each moment one to celebrate.

As a group we will welcome each new day during your vacation with a specially designed morning Kripalu yoga class. Throughout the week you'll learn more about yoga, mindful eating and living, and meditation. There will be a theme for each day that will lead you deeper into a celebration of life. Workshops will include yogic breathing to move energy in the body, various types of mindfulness meditation to develop inner peace and lovingkindness, and restorative yoga and yoga nidra to soothe your body and mind.

There will be plenty of time to receive treatments at the wellness center, lounge by the pool, soak in the hot tub under the stars, take in the spectacular views, meet new friends, and enjoy the many optional eco-adventure tours which are available at Pura Vida Spa. Journey home feeling truly refreshed and re-charged, with a new appreciation for the beauty of life.
