You will wake up to the sound of the Pacific's rolling waves in your luxurious, tropical accommodations and have to decide...before morning yoga should you take a walk to white sand beach of Manuel Antonio or linger by one of the private pools with a freshly made cup of coffee provided by the Villa chef? Or, maybe you will sleep in and walk up a flight of stairs to our rooftop deck for morning yoga. The tropical grandeur of Casa de las Brisas takes care of your every need so you can explore your yoga practice and experience all this authentic, Costa Rican beach side village has to offer. Casa de las Brisas is located in Quepos which is the gateway to Costa Rica's ecological treasure, Manuel Antonio National Park. Our Costa Rica retreat encompasses all that yoga teaches - bringing together the mind and body to let your luminous, creative soul shine!

Your Retreat Includes
6 nights at the Casa de las Brisas, a private, gated, 10 bedroom/10 bathroom villa complete with three pools. All rooms can be private (beds vary - mostly kings, some queens, two bedrooms with 2 twins each). King and queen bedrooms (1 bed/two people) may be shared; the twins can accommodate one person in each bed. We do have the potential to make the twin rooms into triples if a trio of travelers is registering. All bedrooms are professionally decorated using local artisan design, each with unique features. Housekeeping is included each day. The villa is tucked away on a private road, but walkable to any amenity you could need!
Typically two yoga classes will be provided daily. We will explore a number of different styles from active, vinyasa flow to myofascial "ball rolling" to restorative, yoga nidra. We will introduce additional topics such as breathing techniques and an introduction to the chakras. While there will be a general structure to our yoga, we have flexibility to address the group's interests and needs. Classes are intended for all levels - from the most beginner to the most practiced yogi!
Gourmet, Locally Inspired Meals
A private chef will prepare breakfast and dinner daily with delicious, nutritious ingredients to promote mindful eating. We strive to address all dietary requirements. Upon registration, you will receive a questionnaire where you can tell us about your needs. Soft drinks, wine and beer included. **Lunch is not included but Quepos has plenty of delicious eateries, bars, and shops just a short walk from the Villa which you will definitely want to experience!
The trip includes a tour of your choice as well as a group trip. Closer to the trip, we will provide additional details about the group activity. Manuel Antonio/Quepos offers everything your Mother-earth loving soul wants to do! Individual tour choices include a tour/hike of the Manuel Antonio National Park, waterfall exploration, ziplining, kayaking, horseback riding, and rafting among many others! You will choose your tour closer to the trip; we will book the activities for you. To learn more, visit Manuel Antonio National Park. A number of luxurious local spas are also located in Quepos at your own expense.
