Never been on a Yoga Vacation and wondering what to expect?
Imagine this: Wake in the morning to the sound of ocean waves. Stroll down to the open-air restaurant for a delicious breakfast before taking a leisurely walk on the beach. Head over to the spacious, ocean-view yoga shala for an invigorating morning yoga session led by Brynn. Spend your afternoon riding world-class waves or taking your first surf lesson, indulging in a massage, snorkeling in the tide-pools, lounging at the pool, taking a zip-line adventure, or hiking in the Cabo Blanco Absolute Reserve. Then meet back to the yoga shala for a more restorative and centering evening yoga session complete with guided meditations and breath work. Saunter back to the restaurant to laugh and converse in the company of your new friends over a glass of wine and gourmet dinner prepared with fresh local ingredients. Finally, return to your luxurious villa or bungalow for a restful night’s sleep, filled with feelings of gratitude.
In a place where your biggest decision of the day will be: “Should I get a massage today or read by the pool?” you will easily find yourself slowing down and moving into a state of calm reflection. Spending a week so close to nature allows our minds to detoxify from the effects of the constant inundation of media and technology and gives us the opportunity to re-connect to the most essential and true nature of ourselves.

Arrival & Departure Information
Plan to fly into the Costa Rica's international airport San Jose Juan Santamaria (code SJO). If you plan to arrive on Monday, March 3 make sure that your flight arrival time is no later than 12 noon so that you can make the transfer to Santa Teresa that day. You may instead opt to arrive on Sunday and spend the night in the San Jose area before continuing on to Santa Teresa the next morning. True FLOW Yoga and Pranamar are happy to offer you advice and assistance with determining where to stay if you choose to arrive early.
There are several ways which you can arrive to the retreat location in Santa Teresa on the Nicoya Peninsula. From San Jose, the quickest and easiest way to get to Pranamar is by taking a domestic flight with Nature Air or Sansa (The nearest airport to Santa Teresa is Tambor which is a 25-minute flight. Tambor to Santa Teresa is a 45-min taxi drive.) If the flight times on these airlines are not convenient, you may instead choose to charter a private flight for up to 6 people. To save money and try a more scenic journey via land and ferry, you may opt for a private shuttle and driver (travel time is about 5 hrs one-way) Transfers are not included in the retreat package cost. However, True FLOW Yoga and Pranamar are happy to help you make your travel arrangements. Feel free to email Larissa at Pranamar with travel and transfer questions:
Due to its more remote location, Santa Teresa has been protected from over-development and maintains a laid-back vibe. While it might take a bit more time to reach this pristine beach lined by wild jungle on the Nicoya Peninsula, it is a tropical paradise worth the journey!
