Costa Rica yoga retreat #1:

The Goddess Garden Hotel is in the rainforest, and a 5 minute walk to the beach. (10 of us so far for this first trip)
Come visit the lush, wild, and wonderful Caribbean side of Costa Rica. After three years on the Pacific coast, last year we moved our yoga retreat to the less touristy Caribbean side. We hold our yoga retreat at the beautiful Goddess Garden (see below), but we will also have a relaxing first and last night of the trip at the lovely Adventure Inn, about 10 minutes from San Jose airport.
Goddess Garden Rainforest Retreat Center
will be our home for 7 of the 9 nights. Goddess Garden sits right in the middle of a wonderful rainforest. The biggest tree in the area, a 340 year old “Sangrillo,” grows within sight of the yoga facility, where we will see monkeys and sloths right from where we do our yoga. There is also another nice yoga deck, a pristine swimming pool, and very nice, good sized rooms with private baths. The place where we eat is elevated, also sitting right in the middle of the rainforest, where the prana is very healing. The Caribbean beach is only a five minute walk away, and the town of Cahuita sits three miles south of the Goddess Garden.
Goddess Garden has amazing and healthy food! Virtually all your meals for the trip are included: 3 meals daily at Goddess Garden, breakfast at the other hotel, lunch en route, and a special dinner out. Mostly vegetarian.
Compassion will be our theme for this retreat. Compassion includes acceptance of self, others, and life situations. Compassion moves us out of resistance and suffering to joy and love.
