Nosara Yoga Retreat

7 Day Yoga Retreat in Nosara, Costa Rica!
Dates: February 7 – 14, 2016

Demonstrating an environmental sensitivity unparalleled elsewhere, Costa Ricans have set aside one quarter of their land as protected areas and national parks. Ecotourists are rewarded with botanical and animal marvels found nowhere else on Earth. Although Costa Rica is best known as an invaluable refuge for nature, this small nation is also a haven of peace.

This retreat takes place in Nosara… Nosara is unlike anyplace on the planet. Its rich vegetation, amazing surf, and active wildlife make it a truly special place for people looking for adventure, rest, or simply a different way of life. The lifestyle here is relaxed and friendly–most people work hard but know how to let loose and enjoy their surroundings. With so many natural cultural attractions it is easy to see why.

The guests will arrive in Liberia and depart on a complimentary shuttle bus to Nosara. The bus is a 2.5 hour journey from the airport on a scenic route.

Testimonials

“Do you ever feel that the best adventures in life are the ones we did not meditate on or seek out? I certainly do, and I have recently had the good fortune to experience it firsthanon my Seven Day Nosara-Costa Rica yoga retreat in Feb 2016.  I did not have this vacation planned out, and had no idea about it until a week before I left. Having booked it last minute, I had many questions. Amanda Huculak, from Travel Roots answered all my questions, and even helped me find a flight last minute.
 
She was very kind and compassionate with all of the members that took this trip. She made sure everyone got picked up from the airport, had what we needed, including food, excursions, and planning out our days as a group or independently. A small example of her mindfulness was when my flight was very early in the morning on the day I was to return to Winnipeg and she made an arrangement with our amazing chef to pack me a little breakfast to take out on the road! The owner of the retreat came to my door to wake me upgave me hugs, and handed me my breakfast while wishing me safe travels! I don’t know of any travel agency or 5 start hotel can give you that experience!
 
Noah Krol, our Yoga teacher, was absolutely amazing! He coordinated our days according to what we desired to practice for the day. Noah also taught me to do a hand stand, something I had wanted to learn for years and did not think I could ever do! Our group was absolutely wonderful and supportive, and by the end of the week I could do variations of handstands. I learned the strength of team support, as well as positive awareness of body vs mind through taking this trip. I feel fortunate to have met and made friends with such a wonderful group of people.
 
At the end of the trip, I learned that Travel Roots is not only an organization, but also a  friend that opens the door of adventure and curiosity to show you anything is possible with the support of great people and a purpose. I will definitely look for more opportunities to venture out with Travel Roots in the future, in hopes to create more of these unforgettable memories!  I want to thank Amanda Huculak from Travel Roots and Noah Krol from Peg City Yoga for helping me experience one of the best adventures of my life. Seven days at the Nosara – Costa Rica Yoga retreat was exactly what I needed in this phase of my life. :)” – Saila Mukta, Winnipeg, Canada
“I had such an amazing time on the retreat and honestly can’t think of any feedback for improvement. I appreciated how chill it was in terms of creating space for everyone to feel free to do their own thing or join in, as well as having the options of additional activities. While at the same time the structure for the meals and organized transportation made everything so smooth and easy! And yes, the FOOD was incredible!” Marisa Cline, Winnipeg, Canada

A Typical Day…

Wake up at 8am with a morning yoga session followed by a delicious healthy breakfast. After breakfast head to the beach to surf the waves and return just in time for lunch. After lunch go for an afternoon hike in search finding a secluded place to rejuvenate by one of the 3 different beaches. The evenings you will have the option of attending another yoga or meditation session followed by a delicious locally sourced meal prepared by the local Chef duo Meghan & Isaac. With close access to a local community you can venture out for a couple beers or continue to relax at the Nosara Bed & Breakfast.

The whole idea behind this retreat is to allow yourself to unplug and rejuvenate. The beauty is to have an unstructured itinerary so you can find time to slow things down and reconnect with yourself. We live in such a chaotic world that sometimes simplicity is a beautiful thing. Plus it leaves room for spontaneous moments.

Optional activities can be arranged either beforehand or upon arrival at Nosara.

More About Nosara

Nosara and its surrounding beach towns of Garza, Guiones, Pelada and Ostional have become favorites among traveling surfers of all levels for both its waves and relaxed pace of life. It‘s located on the Pacific coastline of Costa Rica about 2 hours from the Liberia airport, 4 hours from the San Jose airport or a short 45 minute commuter flight.

Nosara recently appeared in National Geographic and New York Times Travel as “World’s Best Surf Towns” and “45 Places to Go in 2012”. Friendly people, year-round warm water, great restaurants, fun nightlife, world renowned yoga, world-class fishing, snorkeling and the longest zip line in Latin America are just some of the reasons for its popularity. But we chose Nosara for a different reason. It’s one of the most consistent surf breaks in the world which means that during your trip, chances are high that you’ll score ideal conditions regardless of your SUP ability level. We have over 350 surfable days a year with 90% being clean waist high to head high waves.

The area is also home to the Reserva Biologica Nosara which is a 90 acre nature preserve that is situated along the Nosara River. The reserve sets the stage for all sorts of eco-activities including SUP flat water paddle touring. The Reserva is packed with over 270 species of birds, monkeys, pizote, iguana’s and all types of flora/fauna.

Unlike other surf towns around the world, you wont find condo’s lining these beaches. Back in the 70’s the Nosara Civic Association declared a large portion of the area a Preserve thus creating large green spaces and buffers throughout the community. 40+ years later, Nosara still looks and feels like a tropical jungle.
