The beach at Uvita, Costa Rica slides outward in a point towards the sea, the end of which goes in either direction along a sandy expanse known as Cola de Ballena, ‘tail of the whale.’ Above the beach, the jungle stretches up the mountains where monkeys and macaws watch as majestic whales glide past their beach-shaped counterpart.
Selva Armonia is an immersive jungle resort offering an eco-luxury experience woven into ocean view permaculture gardens. Our time there is an exclusive experience – we’ve booked the whole site. We’ll enjoy the full attention of the staff, explore the permaculture gardens and soak in the beautiful ocean views.
This retreat is co-created and co-led by Sonya Jordan of Monticello Yoga and Jennifer McIntee of Beyond Bending Yoga (full bios at the bottom of this page) who have designed this experience to with twice daily yoga with instruction, local excursions, and opportunities for private sessions to fill in your week. Slip in the pool and sip on a smoothie. Wander the jungle on the waterfall hike. Fill up on farm to table food.
This is your retreat.
Six days and five nights feels like the right amount of time to slip off to tropical Costa Rica for this Yoga Lifestyle Retreat.
Immerse yourself in the Yogic Lifestyle with session twice daily, morning and evening. The morning session is the active side: flow-based practice with mindful movement that prepares you for meditation. The evening session is the slower side: restorative practices such as Yoga Nidra, Restorative Yoga, and Yin Yoga. We are intentionally making space for you to choose activities according to your own needs. There is time in the schedule for you to fill it with adventure and excursions or time find a quiet nook and relax.
Amenities abound on this retreat with all meals are included and made with a farm-to-table, plant-forward approach. Fresh fruit smoothies will be flowing freely (unlimited and complimentary!) to keep you flowing through the yoga sessions. Shuttles to and from the resort are complimentary. Your retreat package also includes a beautiful waterfall hike and the use of the pool. Climate controlled rooms are available.
We are also offering CECs with Yoga Alliance for this retreat for those of you who are looking to build or refresh your credentials through our trained and accredited teachers.
This retreat bundle offers convenience and exclusivity. The staff is there for us, and they will shuttle us in, give us unlimited smoothies, take us on a waterfall hike, and then give us the space to do whatever else we want.
