Ybc Yoga & Surf Retreat In Costa Rica Nov 6 - 11, 2014

1 post in this topic

There are a couple spaces left at the Yoga & Surf Retreat in Costa Rica next month! All the details (and pictures) can be found here on the blog, but if you're just quickly skimming, here's what's going down: 

The Plan

I've secured a stunning house 15 minutes from the beach, and it has breathtaking views, an infinity pool, and the perfect covered patio for our yoga sessions. I've done a ton of research and consulted with a number of locals to create the best deal for the type of retreat I wanted to offer - an upscale and relaxing week, with a little adventure. This 5 night yoga retreat includes: transportation to/from our villa (to/from Liberia airport), 10 yoga classes, 4 meditation and pranayama classes, a two hour surf lesson including all equipment and transportation, all breakfasts and dinners, and a welcome swag bag!

8:00am - 8:30am Morning meditation
