Renew and replenish in the wild elements of Costa Rica. Bask in the sun. Breathe in the ocean breeze. Walk beneath the tropical rainforest canopy.  Bathe under wild waterfalls.  Discover local healing plants. Restore your energy in harmony with the elements of nature and let your tensions melt into rejuvenation. 

Join us at a jungle oasis in central Costa Rica where mango trees thrive, passion flowers bloom and healing herbs abound.  Here you can treat your body and soul to the delights of nature, be nourished by delicious inspired meals prepared with the freshest local ingredients, and reconnect with your own rhythm and spirit. 

Begin your day with yoga practice and pranayama in the open-air shala. End your day around the fire, under a warm starry night sky.  Spend the day by the ocean, and walk barefoot on the sand. Hike to a forest waterfall, and let it shower over you.  Explore the healing plants of this tropical region with guidance from two herbalists.  Indulge in an array of bodywork, spa treatments and healing offerings.  Take a dip in the pool, and soak in the sunlight.
