Rachel VerValin

December 30, 2017 - January 6, 2018

“Exceeded my expectations. Awesomely Fantastic!” – Wendy

There’s really no “typical day” in Costa Rica – everything is laid back and easy, Pura Vida style – but a day will include: Morning yoga, breakfast, lunch, lounge time, afternoon/evening yoga, and dinner – did we mention all of the food is SUPER fresh and amazing! Other activities throughout the day might include: a trip into town for a fresh coconut to drink, surfing, stand up paddle boarding, lounging on the beach, drinking a beer in the hammock, bird watching for parrots, listening to the sounds of the jungle, white water rafting, zip-lining, and basking in the glorious sun! (remember, it’s January everywhere else… brrr!)

– 7 days, 6 nights accommodations at Vida Asana Eco Lodge and Yoga Shala – all rooms with private bathroom, hot water, fridge, air conditioning, and ceiling fan

– 2 Daily Yoga classes taught by Rachel and Keri, including: Vinyasa Flow, Restorative, Pranayama, and meditation

“The retreat was everything I expected and more. Structured but loose enough to work in what I wanted to do. The right amount of yoga, and at an appropriate level for our group. A real vacation in a beautiful setting with yoga as a plus! The perfect way to re-set your energy/body/mind going into a new year.” – Maggie

“Sean, Jess, and Juju really made their resort feel like they were opening up their home to us. That’s exactly what I wanted going away on a long trip away from my family. I’m happy I stayed at their lodge instead of at a fancy resort 🙂 They were so kind to accommodate extra rides for us, and even bought us ice cream!” – Kathleen  

Additional Activities: 

We know that some people want to lounge around, read a book, and rest on vacation, while others want to explore the favorite activities of the locals, so we’ve added these adventures ‘a la carte’ – pricing is approximate, and may vary slightly closer to the trip:

All day White Water Rafting Adventure – $150 (highly recommended)

Ocean View Zip-lining – $70

Pressure Point, Swedish, or Deep Tissue Massage – $60/hour

Energy Healing Session – $90

“This retreat will change your life. It is the perfect combination of yoga, meditation, and fun. The teachers are awesome – they teach for all levels. The activities are great, but you don’t have to do them if you want to spend the day at the beach or getting a massage. The food is delicious and healthy. Vida Asana is a great jungle retreat. I give this retreat an A+” – Nicole
