Journeying Through The Chakras
January 20 - 27, 2018
A Yoga Retreat in a cool jungle setting sure to be filled with fun, adventure and personal discovery. Each day we will focus on a chakra, or energy system within the body, that can be used to explore the body-mind connection for healing and transformation.
One – two daily sessions including yoga, meditation and learning about the chakras, leaving lots of free time to engage in your choice of excursions or just relax by the pool or go to the beautiful beach! This will be an unforgettable week!!
Our retreat center, Vida Asana, is tucked away in the jungle, less than a mile from the beach in Playa Hermosa, which is a quiet surfing community with beautiful volcanic sand beaches, located between the beach towns of Jaco and Manuel Antonio, about 90 minutes south of San Jose Airport (SJO).
Vida Asana was built in 2002, and at the time was one of the first yoga retreat centers on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica. Since then Vida Asana has grown into a beautiful eco and yoga school to foster a fantastic yoga and meditation learning experience. Guests enjoy a simple and mindful experience that is often lacking in their daily lives. Guests are encouraged to soak up the sounds, smells, and visually appealing landscape, while letting go and allowing their soul room to breathe.
