No matter what holiday you celebrate, the month between Thanksgiving and New Year’s can be an overwhelming time. Escape the stress of the holiday season and your day-to-day life by relaxing for eight amazing days in paradise. Enjoy two yoga classes daily taught by Cicelee and Julia, accompanied by three delicious, healthy meals, lounging at the beach, and spending time with new friends.
We’ll even have a special class dedicated to setting intentions and resolutions for the New Year...AND ring in the New Year together with a yoga party!
El Sabanero Eco Lodge is located on a hillside in Cañafistula near Tamarindo in Costa Rica. The lodge overlooks the Cañafistula Valley with beautiful views from all chalets, and is in the midst of four of the most popular and beautiful beaches in the area. There are endless amounts of activities to keep you busy during the day, with excursion options, including zip lining, horseback riding, snorkeling, sunset cruise tours, surfing, rafting tours, turtle nesting, and many more!
If you don't have a friend to travel with, no problem! There are many wonderful people who are traveling alone on this trip. Please come along, enjoy, and make new friends.
“Pura Vida” (pronounced poo-rah vee-dah) simply translated means “simple life” or “pure life”, but in Costa Rica, it is more than just a saying -- it is a way of life.
Costa Ricans (Ticos) use this term to say hello, to say goodbye, to say everything’s great, to say everything’s cool. However, it is not the words that reflect the true meaning of ¡Pura Vida!. Pura Vida is the way Ticos live. Not surprisingly, Costa Rica has been named one of the happiest countries in the world, mostly because its inhabitants don’t stress about things the way most foreigners do. Ticos have a very relaxed, simple way of looking at life. No worries, no fuss, no stress—pura vida to them means being thankful for what they have and not dwelling on the negative.
Although many people use the saying ‘pura vida’, until you’ve been to Costa Rica, you will not truly know what pura vida feels like. It’s an emotion, it’s an attitude, it’s happiness, and it’s a way of life. Our goal for this yoga retreat is to define the true meaning of pura vida.
