The Central Pacific Region of Costa Rica is home to some of the most breathtaking coastal scenery in the world. Featuring impressive cliffs that rise high above the coastlines and and tropical vegetation, it’s no wonder that this unique travel destination has become one of the country’s most sought-after places to visit.

Win an 8 Day, 7 Night Vagabond Vinyasa Yoga Retreat in Costa Rica

Vagabond Vinyasa yoga is a style of yoga that puts the focus on being carefree and unleashing your deeper sense of creativity. Rather than sticking to a more structured formula, yogis are encouraged to get more creative with their movement in ways that inspire them to really tap into their inner spirit.

The yoga platform at Alma de Hatillo is situated on the edge of the forest right across from a beautiful brook. Yoga classes will be held each day in the late morning, with every day's class specially designed to focus on something different.

On day one, you’ll celebrate May Day and the New Moon before moving on to focus your practice on the journey (as opposed to the the cool Instagram photo you want to post of your best asana) during day two. Find peace in stillness on day three, locate your centrer on day four, practice on the beach on day five, take risks on day six and finally to end an amazing week, you’ll be invited to a closing ceremony practice on day seven that will keep you inspired long after the retreat is over.
