Beachside Winter Sun Yoga Holiday Costa Rica

03 - 12th March 2020 (Tuesday - Thursday, 9 nights)

A destination that is on everyone's yoga bucket list, join us this winter for our beachside yoga holiday Costa Rica.

We are so excited about our new yoga holiday Costa Rica for 2020. We have searched high and low to offer you a relaxing and adventurous 10 day winter sun yoga holiday. We have chosen to stay in the exclusive area of Playa Guiones, right in the heart of the wellness and surf mecca, Nosara.

Based on the Pacific coast, you will be staying in two beachside villas with private pools, right next to each other. With acres of space, a rancho (that is two storeys for outdoor communal living downstairs and above a yoga shala), hire a golf buggy or catch a tuk tuk into Nosara and experience the vibes of the Pura Vida (Vital Life) and see how the wellness world has flourished in Costa Rica.

Begin the day with yoga in the rancho yoga shala to the sounds of monkeys and tropical birds, followed by breakfast al fresco and take a dip in the pool or head down to the beach. Relax at the villa or try surfing on one of the best surf beaches, wander into town or feel exhilarated with one of the many activities on offer in the surrounding area for eg, zip-lining through the rainforest canopy, a quad bike tour along the coast, visit a chocolate or coffee factory and so much more.

Enjoy evening yoga and then settle down to a vegan / vegetarian dinner with our own chef. Fall asleep listening to the sound of the waves meeting the shore.

We have chosen this area as you will be in the thick of the wellness zone and free to make the holiday what you choose it to be so it could be; a pure surf holiday, or you might opt for adventure activities or you might want to simply relax on the beach and read a great book. It’s up to you as it’s your yoga holiday. We are available to help you make it whatever you want it to be.

About the teacher

Amy’s style of teaching comes from a place of nurturing. She wants you to feel free to explore the capabilities of your own body, respect your boundaries and learn how to heal and protect it. By blending strong, grounded hatha practises with the freedom found in Scaravelli and vinyasa she believes that each practise can help create the perfect balance between flexibility and stability in both body and mind.

About the yoga

Morning yoga on your yoga holiday Costa Rica: wake up early to the sounds of the tropical jungle waking up, arrive on your mat in the Rancho overlooking the pool and grounds. The practice will begin as a gentle awakening, building up to more dynamic poses – slowly building so that over the 11 days of yoga asana you find your body opening up to new depths in poses you’d never imagined; that you can settle in meditation quicker than before, that silence is something to be cherished. Feel energised and refreshed and ready for your day in the sun.

Evening yoga on your yoga holiday Costa Rica: Arrive either at the Rancho or on the beach for sunset yoga. Settle into a more restorative practice to begin with and once the deep rest has been satisfied with yoga nidra and restorative poses, find more playful partner yoga being welcomed.



  • Stay in a choice of two villas 5 minutes walk from the beach
  • The beach Playa Guiones is the best surf beach in Costa Rica
  • Be independent and choose activities in the 11 day holiday that you want to do
  • Enjoy two pools and two ranchos for extra chill out space
