From the rush of catching your first wave to the complete blissful relaxation of yoga on the beach at sunset, you will wonder why you haven’t done this sooner.
Engaging in daily activities of surfing and yoga, you naturally step into the flow of nature and the Earth’s energy. Faced with new situations, you learn more about who you are, what you are capable of, and your connection with the world around you.
On a surf yoga retreat in Costa Rica, not only will you soon be laughing and enjoying good times with new friends, you will take your experiences back home with you to integrate into your daily life – creating a difference lasting far longer than any regular vacation.
Costa Rica yoga surf retreats at Pranamar Oceanfront Villas & Yoga Retreat bring people from all over the world. Besides world-class surfing and internationally-acclaimed yoga classes, the tropical beauty and exotic nature at the beachfront hotel in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica is enough to put you in heaven. The intimate, Bali-style boutique hotel fronts the spectacular beach of Playa Hermosa, backed by lush jungle.
Pranamar Villas was named a Top 5 Yoga Retreat in Costa Rica by Travel & Leisure Magazine, and holds TripAdvisor’s 2015 Certificate of Excellence. Santa Teresa Beach is not only a favorite Costa Rica surf spot on the southern Nicoya Peninsula, it also was named one of Central America’s top 10 beaches for 2015. Santa Teresa is the home surf spot for Costa Rica surfer Anthony Fillingim of the Costa Rica National Surf Team, which was crowned 2015 World Surfing Champions earlier this year.
Benefits of a surf yoga retreat include surfing lessons, yoga classes, sharing experiences with like-minded people, healthy food, and additional adventures – all in a gorgeous, warm, tropical destination. Daily yoga classes at Pranamar Villas with Pranamar yoga director, Nancy Goodfellow, are very popular in the hotel’s beautiful oceanfront Yoga Shala.
You will have plenty of down time to get a soothing massage at the Pranamar Spa; or to enjoy tours and activities like stand-up Paddleboarding, horseback riding, zip lining or hiking; explore the funky cosmopolitan town of Santa Teresa; or simply relax in a hammock and blissfully do absolutely nothing.
