Costa Rica’s tropical jungles and serene beaches make it the perfect destination for any yogi traveler who’s looking to break away from everyday modern life to really connect with nature. Its rich biodiversity makes it one of the most unique regions in the world to spot rare wildlife and plant species that can’t be found anywhere else.
This May, we’re giving away a 7 day, 6 night Costa Rican summer sojourn yoga retreat courtesy of Trip Tribe. Our lucky Yogi Surprise retreat winner will enjoy this week-long stay at the beautiful El Sabanero Eco Lodge in Cañafistula Valley, located on the North Pacific side of the country.
Connect With Yourself in Costa Rica’s Cañafistula Valley
Situated on a hillside overlooking the valley, El Sabanero Eco Lodge is close to four of the regoin’s most popular and breathtaking beaches. The lodge is nestled among the natural Costa Rican landscape and features 15 separate chalets made out of local teak wood — each with a private porch overlooking the tropical gardens that surround it.
Yoga sessions will be offered twice a day during this retreat with a focus on asana and self-exploration. Morning sessions will be dedicated to an hour of asana practice while afternoon practices will involve group workshops involving AcroVinyasa, arm balancing, backbends, and more. The lodge’s yoga chalet overlooks the Cañafistula Valley so that you can connect with all the sights, sounds, smells, and feelings of the tropical jungles and ocean waters in the distance as you go through your practice.
