Full Description

Ananda Yoga Retreats IS IN COSTA RICA OCT 10 -15, 2018

If you've been following Ananda Yoga Retreats lately, you know we just finished our 2018 yoga retreat in Aruba and it was fabulous! We are so blessed to have met everyone who attended and get to know them with an open heart in a beautiful sacred place.

We just made our final bookings for Malpais, Costa Rica for our next yoga retreat this year taking place October 10-15, 2018! I've dreamt for years to host our retreat in Costa Rica and it's finally coming into reality. We've worked hard to get here and we have (literally) the PERFECT sacred space right by the beach in Malpais, which is a quieter more relaxed area just outside Santa Teresa.

Malpais has become quite legendary over the years, since many famous musicians have shown up unexpectedly and rocked Malpais at the open-mic event that used to happen here at Malpais Surf Camp, and the area still has many celebrities who visit here to escape the paparazzi. You never know who you may see surfing the wave next to you. A greater amount of intact jungle, and more water in the hills keeps the area greener, and because there are less tourists, it’s quieter.

This will be a Reiki and Yoga Retreat as we welcome Ben Van Bemmel Reiki Master to help serve at this event. Reiki will be included with each yoga session and we will be moving our retreats deeper into energy healing work. The experience of Reiki in combination with yoga has changed our retreat it's created a space for deeply healing personal transformation. With both Reiki Masters Ben and Caitlan, you will be fully supported along your journey into releasing deep anxiety, and allowing a beautiful sense of joy and love to grow within your heart. Caitlan will be guiding you through the yoga and meditation sessions that will also provide a deep understanding of the yoga philosophy and how to apply it to your life. For more information on this go to our website and check out our student reviews.

If you've been curious or want to know about attending one of our yoga bubbles: now is the time to book your spot. We create a close-nit yoga kula (tribe/family) environment where those who attend become deeply connected. Many life-long friendships have been created at our events and we are always so honoured to experience the true meaning of yoga at our retreats (UNION).

This will be a wonderful experience just like all of our other and yes Danah Corrigan will be cooking for this one as well! She is an experienced vegetarian gluten-free chef. Our students rave about our food and always ask for the recipes after the event.
