Accommodation

The Goddess Garden is a yoga retreat and a yoga teacher training retreat center. Most of all, it is an intentional place for yoga, meditation, and transformation in Costa Rica. The resort is known for its unique gardens and prime location, delicious meals, comfortable accommodations, and a wholehearted team of staff members. Its buildings are distributed over an area of 14 acres, using the natural clearings in the forest to build the resort.

The water in the rooms is heated by solar panels to cut down the use of electricity. They compost their organic leftovers. This compost is put back as fertilizer in the garden. Every action to conserve energy helps to minimize the damage that people cause to the earth, and they go the old fashion way of drying the clothes in the sun, when possible.

Conference center

The conference room is designed for 100 souls to enjoy the spectacular view of the rainforest. It has a stage for artists or speakers to perform. They offer the newest audio and video system. For your comfort, it is equipped with air conditioning. In the back of the room, a built-in waterfall with tropical plants will delight your eyes.

Indoor yoga studio

They provide these facilities so you can take advantage of your yoga and meditation practice while learning from your yoga instructor. Many certified yoga instructors have chosen this yoga retreat destination for yoga teacher training retreats, not only because of its natural surroundings but also because of its suitable installations. The Goddess Garden offers the best atmosphere to practice yoga in groups.

Outdoor yoga studio

The spectacular “palapa” (hut), with its 13-meter diameter, is an invitation for yoga sessions or for outdoor meetings. This yoga teacher training and retreat center is surrounded by huge jungle trees, which follow the path of a small creek. Just a step away, you will find the oldest and most amazing tree in Cahuita, Costa Rica. Its roots, as tall as a man, will leave you breathless. This beautiful setting will invite you to practice yoga and meditation.

Pool and gardens

Naturally, the most important part of the retreat center is the exotic flowers and the animals that inhabit the huge jungle trees throughout the property. In the beautifully designed gardens, you can be a part of it, either by watching, listening, or just relaxing in a hammock or taking a dip in the magnificently designed pool.

Rooms

The Caribbean inspired bungalows are nestled in the midst of the rainforest.
