Join the Rhode Island Hot Yoga crew for our 5th trip to Pura Vida Retreat & Spa in Costa Rica in 2024!

Our Costa Rica yoga retreat offers a little something for everyone. We'll have a combo of hot yoga, non-heated yoga, and fitness classes every day. You'll have plenty to time to book excursions, enjoy top quality Wellness Services, or take a nap in a hammock. Whether you're interested in rafting through the jungle on the Rio Pacuare (one of the best white-water spots in the world!) or relaxing by the pool with a great book after a hot stone massage, this trip has something for you!

We will offer a mix of Original Hot Yoga (26&2), Core Fire Conditioning (high-intensity interval training), and Yin Yoga classes throughout the week. Beginners are always welcome and all class are optional - choose the schedule that's best for you.
