COSTA RICA YOGA RETREAT
November 22-29, 2019
7 Days of Yoga, Nature & Relaxation
Imagine practicing yoga to the sounds of the jungle all around you! The yoga studio (pictured left) is immersed in nature and will provide all required props so you can pack light!
When you join our Costa Rica retreat you will enjoy two daily yoga classes* to nourish your mind, body and spirit. This is your opportunity to reconnect with yourself and the pulse of the world.
Morning yoga classes will be Vinyasa Flows to energize you for the day and evening classes will be a mix of Hatha, Slow Vinyasa and Yin to unwind and relax.
*A few of our days together will only have a morning yoga class to allow for freedom + activities in the evening.
All levels are welcome but the classes will generally be at this level of difficulty and pace: https://youtu.be/Z6jRKThDCBU
Leave the hustle and bustle of the big city behind. It's time to unplug and reconnect.
We will be at Playa Cocles, staying at La Costa De Papito resort (click here to learn more). This location offers the perfect balance between jungle and beach! We are minutes away from the water and nestled in the jungle where you can hear birds, monkeys and more wilderness all around you!
This retreat is all about RELAXING. While we will have a few scheduled activities, for the most part this retreat will focus on spending time on the beach, in nature and with yourself to recharge and relax.
I've been to Puerto Viejo three times now and it is my favorite place in the world. It's a wonderful place to recharge and slow way way down.
Are you ready for a little bit of R&R? My name is Kassandra Reinhardt and I'm a Yoga Instructor based out of Ottawa, Canada. I teach Vinyasa Flow and Yin Yoga classes locally as well as online through my Yoga with Kassandra YouTube channel.
Throughout our week together I will lead you through some yoga practices to help you nourish mind, body and soul. Whether you are new to the practice of yoga or an advanced yogi, I will make sure your yoga practice is engaging and fun. This retreat is all about YOU.
I hope you'll decide to join me for a week of connection, relaxation and beach time fun on this carribean retreat!
ACCOMMODATION & PRICES
We will be staying at La Costa De Papito (pictured above) in private bungalows and using the Heart of Elevation yoga studio which is a minute walk away. La Costa De Papito also has a full spa and restaurant. Check-in on the 22nd and check-out on the 29th.
La Costa de Papito, located on the beach road one and a half Kms from Puerto Viejo town. A lush tropical “Garden of Eden” on the edge of the jungle.
Just across the road from the gorgeous expanse of the white sand Cocles beach — “Beachbreak wave” for surfers on the north end, and the cool, sweet water of the Rio Cocles to the south. Cocles Beach is the winner of the highly coveted Costa Rican government Blue Flag for pristine beach.
The Cocles lifeguard Program administered by La Costa de Papito makes Cocles beach the only lifeguard protected beach on the Caribbean coast.
This retreat includes 7-nights accommodation, with full breakfast and daily yoga classes. We will have a few excursions together as a group while also giving you plenty of time to book your own activities or simply lounge around on the beach!
My intention with this retreat is to make it affordable for all and to give you enough free time so that you can book your own extra activities or spa treatments as you'd like! Spend as much or as little as you want.
CHECK-IN ON NOVEMBER 22ND IS AT 3PM. We will have an evening yoga class at around 5pm. If you arrive early you can leave your luggage at the front desk and enjoy the beach, restaurant, spa or even go to the Puerto Viejo town half a km away until check-in time :)

WHAT'S NOT INCLUDED

You have many options for this. We are 4 hours away from the San Jose Airport. You can arrange for a private shuttle directly with the resort where we will be staying or you can spend less and take the public interbus. FOR ALL OPTIONS AND TO BOOK YOUR TRANSPORTATION, CLICK HERE. If you need help with this, let me know!
Lunch & Dinner
There are PLENTY of food options all around us! One of the best things about Puerto Viejo is the amazing food selection. It is more cost-effective to let you choose your own food options based on your budget and dietary restrictions rather than set the meals for you. The resort has it's own restaurant and there are plenty of other places within walking distance or you can go into town for a $5 cab ride or quick bike ride.
Daily food budget should be about $10 USD per person for lunch and $15-30 USD per person for dinner.
Extra activities, spa services, etc.
I'm so excited to announce that Bohemian Island is sponsoring this Costa Rica retreat! This means that each retreat attendee will receive a special surprise item from this lovely brand.
I fully support Bohemian Island and love what this company stands for. Part of all proceeds go to the Soi Dog Foundation in Thailand which saves sick and stray dogs in Phuket.

SOLO TRAVELLERS - If you're travelling by yourself but would like to cut costs, you can ask for a "Roommate Match" by sending me an email after paying using the contact form below. This will allow you to pay the Double Occupancy price instead of the Single Occupancy price. However, please note that if by August 1, 2019 no other solo traveler has signed up and no roommate can be matched with you, you will have to pay the Single Occupancy price. Only request the Roommate Match if you are comfortable with the odd possibility of having to pay the Single Occupancy price.
