Danyasa Eco-Retreat is a boutique yoga retreat center in the heart of town, just a short walk to the beach, offering world-class movement arts experiences in a world-class setting. You’ll feel the brilliant green nature surroundings as you get out of your head and connect to your inner rhythm. Relax poolside at the luxurious little oasis for quiet and serene sunbathing. Their eco-friendly repurposed containers are comfortable, well-deorated and euipped with A/C, WiFi and private safes.

Enjoy daily yoga sessions in the gorgeous Bamboo Yoga Play Studio. Sessions are tailored to provide positive results for all levels of yoga practitioners, from first-timers to seasoned yogis. A friendly and knowledgeable teacher will lovingly support you in listening to your body, meeting yourself in each moment and inviting yourself to go deeper into connecting with your body, breath and creative spirit.

Program

You will be guided through several forms of meditation that include elements of the Mindful Self-Compassion program developed by Chris Germer and Kristin Neff, and will focus largely on self-compassion and lovingkindness. Through this practice, we will cultivate a deeper sense of kindness and care towards ourselves and others in our lives.

Your teacher, Dr. Anahita Holden will also draw from meditation traditions such as Vipassana to provide a focus on insight and Samatha to promote tranquility of the mind. Meditation will include a focus on the five senses, with the use of techniques such as mindful eating and aromatherapy with essential oils.

Elyse Grossman from Divinitree Yoga Studio in Santa Barbara will lead dynamic Vinyasa yoga and Heart & Sound will provide a healing sound bath. You may even get lucky and enjoy a song circle or two.

In between meditation and yoga sessions explore the laid-back surf town of Dominical, home of some of the best waves in the world, while enjoying the beach, the deliciously warm water, breathtaking views, and the transformative wonders of the Southern Pacific Region of Costa Rica. You'll have the opportunity to visit beautiful beaches, including the must-see Costa Rican gem, Manuel Antonio National Park.

On this retreat, you'll tour Alturas Wildlife Sanctuary, and learn how their work in the rescue and rehabilitation center is impacting the wildlife and ecosystem in the Southern Pacific Region of Costa Rica and beyond. You’ll make sure to reward your contribution with a Tico lunch, and a swim at a local waterfall.
