A typical day at Blue Osa will start with an early sunrise that can be enjoyed with a silent walk on the beach and you may be lucky to have the company of Blue Osa's canine family.
Feel free to take some coffee or tea with you and enjoy it as you watch the sun come from behind the mountains reflecting on the vast Golfo Dulce.
A light breakfast will be available in case you want to fuel your body with fresh cut fruit, homemade granola or yogurt before yoga practice.
Morning practice will take place at 7:30 am starting with the group gathering at the Yoga Deck, a structure designed to allow you to enjoy the green lawn disappearing into the sand and leading you into an ocean of crashing waves.
Very often you will have the opportunity to see as the macaws, usually in pairs, fly in front of your eyes. A centered and grounded practice based on alignment, flow, breath and meditation will give you the tools to build your own path during the week.
There is nothing better than a group of like minded men working together towards a common goal, the improvement of the self. Replenishing all the energy invested in your morning practice will not be a problem.
Chef Marie and Chef Jose will make sure your tastebuds take a culinary tour through Costa Rica and the world with a succulent brunch. All meals are cooked fresh with the best local ingredients. Make sure to savor every bit of your meal, the menu is so varied that you may not get a chance to experience the same dish again.
There will be plenty of time to enjoy Blue Osa and its surrounding right after brunch. Feel free to walk around and spend your afternoon laying on the beach, going for a swim in the crystalline lap pool or simply resting in a hammock to the sound of crashing waves at your footsteps.
There is also the option of enjoying some of the wonderful body treatments that Blue Osa's Spa offers. Surrender to a peaceful massage or body scrub with Marcela or Jose using the most natural products that the Osa Peninsula can provide.
Create your own adventure, or simply pick from the great variety that Blue Osa has to offer. Whether you are zip-lining in a Nature Reserve, kayaking through the mangroves of the Osa Penisula, touring a cocoa plantation during the Chocolate Tour or hiking up and around waterfalls during the Waterfall Rappel, you will always be surrounded by natural beauty and tranquility.
The afternoon practice, around 4 pm, may take place in the yoga deck, the pool pavilion or the beach. This would be the time when you let nature decide the location and let yourself be adventurous with your practice. A Restorative or Partner Yoga sequence is always possible. Sharing your own knowledge with others and helping them go deeper into their poses is quite rewarding.
The body will be about ready to enjoy once more Chef Marie's kitchen delicacies. Family style dining is arranged by the kitchen staff and there are always surprises when you arrive to the table. The candlelight setting or the reflection of the moon over the ocean will only accentuate the beauty of what is being served.
There is always the choice of a delicious tropical mixed drink with your meal, just request it before coming to the table. The night arrives fairly quick at Blue Osa.
A full day of yoga and adventure can easily prepare the body for a restful evening. Surrender to your sleep with the sounds of the ocean and jungle and when you wake up in the morning you will realize it was not a dream. Your journey will begin as soon as your eyes make contact with light.
