We know, finding balance in life can sometimes feel like hunting down Nessie. But sometimes, all you need is quality time in nature. Located in the lush forests of Costa Rica, this retreat is all about bringing balance back to your life. Join passionate practitioners and flow through rejuvenating Hatha yoga classes in the open-air studio, and drift into deep relaxation in a group meditation and toning session with quartz singing bowls. And if that doesn’t restore peace to your life, an hour of holistic healing treatments should do the trick.
