SPRING RENEWAL RETREAT IN COSTA RICA
Discover an unspoiled corner of the world where yogis and surfers renew among nature’s most beautiful offerings.
Here in Costa Rica, pristine beaches are blessed by endless ocean and expansive lush forests flourish in delicious jungle air. This paradise is guaranteed to dissolve every tension and restore your energy, fluidity, and joy.
TRANSFORMATIONAL PRACTICE IN PURE BEAUTY
Practicing Yoga for 7-days in a row, away from daily responsibilities and routines always creates incredible shifts. Add in this amazing natural environment, organic gourmet meals, beach bonfires, a shaman purification ceremony, world class surfing, adventuring into the local community, and relaxing in an unforgettable retreat center and you have the conditions for the ultimate revitalizing experience.
This retreat is designed to renew you completely. Our yoga program is sequenced to maximize spring’s rejuvenating energy and will progressively move you deeper and deeper through the body and mind, gracefully and thoroughly rejuvenate every system. Weaving in essential teachings from Deep Listening, Jillian will masterfully guide you through slow flow vinyasa, restoratives, deep relaxation, and meditation. You'll surrender layers of deeply held stress and tension, nurture your capacity for greater joy and compassion, and open to your own inner wisdom.
Classes are perfect for both advanced practitioners who enjoy a mindfully invigorating flow as well as for newer students who are just discovering their abilities. You will be guided to work to your fullest capacity without struggle or strain, enabling you to create sustainable new strength and openings.
Blue Spirit provides an extraordinary setting to all who are dedicated to spiritual transformation, personal development, and environmental sustainability.
Perched on a hilltop that overlooks the Pacific Ocean and a three-mile long white sand beach that is protected as a turtle refuge – Blue Spirit offers an extraordinarily beautiful and natural setting on one of Costa Rica’s renowned beaches, supporting a deeply nurturing and unforgettable experience.
The north and mid sections of Guiones beach offer great surfing for beginners and advanced alike. Blue Spirit is located at the quiet South end of the beach, where swimming is easy, thanks to the gentle current. The 700 foot walk (220 meters) from Blue Spirit to the beach transverses lush grounds full of mango trees and coconut palms.
Your stay at Blue Spirit offers you a comfortable and elegant accommodation of your choice, delicious gourmet vegetarian cuisine, a salt-water infinity pool, koi pond, café, gift shop, spa and longevity services, outdoor excursions, and complimentary wireless service.
