Bikram Beginner Yoga Retreat with Juliana and Lynn
At Pura Vida Spa in Costa Rica November 4th – 11th, 2017
Join us for a week of yoga in paradise!
Relax at the beautiful Pura Vida Spa in the mountains of Costa Rica, practice yoga with us every day, and return home feeling refreshed, renewed, and re-energized.
We will offer Bikram yoga classes and meditation sessions every day in a beautiful heated yoga hall overlooking the Central Valley. Classes will be held twice a day – you can practice as much or as little as you like. Our classes are suitable for yogis of all levels – beginners are welcome! Your retreat also includes three healthy and delicious meals every day, prepared by the chefs at the resort using fresh local produce.
In your free time, you can go on optional days trips organized by the resort, including zip-lining, bird watching, white water rafting, coffee field walks, and more. You can also treat yourself to one of the many spa services available, such as hot stone massage, myofasical release, reiki, ayurvedic counseling, and watsu (water massage). We also encourage you to spend time simply relaxing by the pool or napping in a hammock, taking some time to decompress from the stresses of daily life.
Juliana and Lynn will lead traditional Bikram method yoga classes daily on this retreat. Bikram yoga is a series of 26 poses and 2 breathing exercises done in a heated room for optimal healing benefits. This practice is designed for beginners, but is beneficial to all levels – many of us practice this yoga throughout our lifetime for its physical, mental, and spiritual benefits. If you have never been on a yoga retreat before, this is the perfect way to get started!
