Pura Vida-the pure life
Costa Rica is known for Pura Vida, meaning the pure life. This retreat combines daily surfing, yoga, and poolside continuing education. All of our meals are organic, chef prepared, and locally sourced. This retreat will be like none other as we escape to paradise to learn, connect, and heal. Take this time to reconnect with yourself, your purpose, and create a pure life.
Expect invigorating swims in Costa Rica's best waterfalls, drum circles, amazing food, and true Pura vida hospitality. This retreat will be co-lead by the amazing Dr. Kristina Stitcher who will be sharing her genius with us along the way.
Adventure into the Nosara Jungle just minutes away from the ocean. This retreat center is one like none other, enjoy healthy hand crafted meals, daily yoga classes, jungle hikes, and surf lessons. Enjoy the best of both worlds--the salt of the ocean and the tranquility of the jungle. This wellness retreat center is worlds away from ordinary.
Located in a "Blue Zone" Bodhi Tree Yoga Resort is luxury in one of the healthiest places on earth. Blue zones are known for their purity of food, air, and water. They also have some of the healthiest people in the world.
We are beyond excited to partner with Bodhi Tree and their on site surf school, open air yoga shalas, and locally sourced organic food. This is the way to do Costa Rica. We can't wait to see you there!
