Immerse yourself in the magical wild nature of Costa Rica, and be refreshed and inspired by daily meditation and movement practice. Find a slower rhythm to your day, tap into the uplifting energy of living in nature, wake to the call of howler monkeys, and practice yoga on an open deck visited by hummingbirds, butterflies and macaws. Navina offers a unique wild nature experience with all the creature comforts you need.
We (Justine and Jo) will be your guides. We will help you to feel good in your body. We’ll be exploring and enjoying yoga in a friendly, relaxed community. Morning sessions include meditation and mindful flow yoga – which is a combination of functional movement and yoga postures – and in the afternoon, movement workshops to focus a little more pointedly on certain aspects of both the yoga practice and of the body – and we will often close out the day with the deep relaxation of restorative yoga.
Included in the package:
- Accommodation (double occupancy)
- Three fresh meals per day
- Transfers from the Palmar Sur airport to the centre
- 2 x Yoga sessions per day
- Daily guided Meditation
- Jungle treks to waterfall pools
- 2 x day trips to the beach, with rare and beautiful wildlife and nature
A little more about the flavour of our retreat:
The Highlights –
- Wake to the sound of howler monkeys echoing across the valley.
- Start your day in the quiet grounding of meditation and movement
- Trek through jungle and up river to discover poison dart frogs and swim in river pools under waterfalls.
- Walk along jungle-fringed pristine beaches, swimming in the warm sea
- Watch the vivid blue of the giant morph butterfly as it appears and disappears as if by magic.
Magic sums it up, and that’s before you’ve had your Justine and Jo encounter. We both have 20 years of yoga experience, and bring a playful, down-to-earth vibe to learning and practising healthy functional movement through yoga.
The Yoga –
We blend functional strength and mobility focused movements into a mindful yoga flow. Our teaching style is relaxed and collaborative, encouraging you to explore what works best for you, with plenty of movement options to play with, always lending our support and guidance.
This is an opportunity for you to further cultivate your own yoga practice, ensuring it is both physically sustainable and progressive, and something which supports you in all aspects of your life and for everything you want to do.
We also give time every day to restorative, calming and rejuvenating practices, helping to tap into the body’s natural relaxation response. Something we’ll be doing throughout the more restorative practices is asking you to collectively listen and respond to the cues your body gives, especially as it relates to deep rest and deeper intuitive listening in the body.
The Retreat Environment –
We love how retreats bring people together and create connections, friendship and community in a refreshingly easy way. This valuable time for sharing, eating good food together and being wowed by the nature all around is a part of the experience we offer.
Navina provides us with a magical place to do this in the safe hands of Drew Hume and his team. Drew has built the yoga platform overlooking a natural bowl in the landscape overlooking the rain-forested hillside. It’s an incredible place to do yoga. Hawks swoop by, hummingbirds buzz and butterflies flutter and that’s before the squirrel monkeys show up.
And of Course, the Food –
The Navina menu is fantastic – varied, freshly prepared vegetarian food – 3 meals a day plus 2 snacks, fresh water from their own fresh water spring, tea and coffee available all day. Much of the produce is home grown at Navina, right next to the dining area!
If this is sounding like an incredible opportunity….. Come on, come and play!!!!!
