Summary

Our yoga retreat destination is Manuel Antonio bay, a small town located on the Central Pacific coast and close to a national park. You’ll sleep in an enchanting 5 star villa in luxuriously appointed ensuite guest rooms. Set on 6 floors with views of the sparkling blue ocean and beach below, the villa’s award-winning design means you feel part of the surrounding abundant jungle.

This will be a deep immersive retreat with one of London’s most respected yoga teachers. Explore the rich movement practices of yoga, somatics, breath work and meditation whilst drenching and absorbing yourself in the stunning nature of Costa Rica.

There are plenty of places to relax at the villa and spend lazy afternoons watching monkeys in the trees. Try the comfy lounges or rooftop hammocks, the 6th floor jacuzzi or the infinity swimming pool with its own smoothie bar. Or our golden sandy beach is less than 10 minutes walk away.

If you wish to explore further afield we can organise a trip to Tortuga island, sailing by catamaran to an uninhabited island 10 miles off the coast with palm lined beaches and some of Costa Rica’s best snorkelling. You can also experience the jungle up close with a rainforest and waterfall hike, explore on horseback or enjoy the striking coastlines by ocean kayak.

Our chef Bettina will host a spice farm tour and cooking class where you spend the morning picking local spices and the afternoon in the open plan kitchen helping to create dinner with your chosen spices.

Yoga with Jean Hall

Jean teaches a soulful and deep dynamic, slow flow form of yoga. She is known for her unique creative sequencing of postures which helps to draw students and teachers safely beyond limitations and closer to their true potential and confidence through the ancient yogic system of asanas, mindful breathing and meditation with an approach of devotion and playfulness.

You’ll have a 2 hour morning practice where breathwork/ pranayama unfolds into a fluid movement and dynamic yoga asana flow to awaken, invigorate and cleanse.

Your evening practice will be 1.5 hours of gentle, calming and healing with yin and restorative poses, inversions, meditation and deep relaxation (yoga nidra).
