Since I visited Costa Rica for a yoga retreat, I realized that this is something that everyone needs to do for their mental and physical well-being. In this blog, I’m going to discuss why Costa Rica is the perfect place to do a yoga retreat or teacher training, and why I have chosen Costa Rica to start running a yoga retreat and teacher training program.
Costa Rica lends itself perfectly to yoga because it offers the perfect balance of relaxation, adventure, nature, and beauty that brings peace and happiness to the mind, body, and spirit. – Mantra is located in one of 5 blue zones in the world where people live longer with lower rates of illness, and it was easy to see why!
When I arrived at Montezuma, I was blown away by the beauty of the location. I was also greeted by a family of howler monkeys in the trees outside my balcony. My breath was taken away, and I was mesmerized by the beauty of the jungle that surrounded me. After coming to my senses from staring at the awe-inspiring scenery on my patio, and the sun started to set, I decided to take an outdoor shower while the monkeys played in the trees above, and I realized what a great decision I had made coming to this magical place.
The weather was perfect with sunshine and temperatures in the low 30-degree Celsius range every day. Some people might say it was too hot, but coming from Canada in the middle of winter, I enjoyed every minute of it.
Here you have the opportunity to sign up for whatever activities or spa treatments you want to do. There are so many options to choose from: surfing lessons, zip-lining, horseback riding, cooking lessons, Spanish lessons, a snorkeling excursion, a sunset beach trip to Santa Teresa, a waterfall hike, and so more.
There is also the amazing yoga deck where you can have an early morning vinyasa class overlooking the ocean, and meditation at sunset to wind down after a busy fun-filled day.
If anyone is holding back from doing one of these retreats in fear that they are not fit enough or don’t have enough yoga experience, you can rest assured that these retreats are suitable for any level of experience and ability.
The meals and snacks at the resort are amazing as well – all very healthy, delicious, balanced meals with fresh produce sourced from local farmers, prepared by local people.
You will feel incredible health, happiness, and healing like you’ve never experienced in your entire life. This is an eye-opening experience that would change the course of your life. I decided to make it my goal to one day open my own yoga retreat and teacher training program in Costa Rica so that I can not only live this lifestyle on a regular basis but also give others the opportunity to experience the same level of healing and happiness that I enjoyed in my first Costa Rica retreat.
Have a life changing experience!
