the most magical time
Blue Spirit Costa Rica is my dream retreat and l am returning for my second year after having the most magical time last year.
It has been voted by Yoga Journal 2017 as one of the "best yoga escapes" and offers the perfect space to practice yoga and be in nature.
Located in Nosara one of the worlds Blue Zones which inspired its name Blue Spirit it is perched on a hilltop overlooking the Pacific Ocean and a three-mile white sand beach that is protected as a turtle refuge. According to the author Dan Buettner the Nicoya Peninsular is one of the five Blue Zone's in the world: a blue zone is where people live the longest and enjoy the highest levels of wellbeing.
The pristine nature, subtropical climate, dedicated staff, and the healing energy of the Nosara community create the perfect retreat experience.
The gourmet-vegetarian cuisine, holistic Spa & Longevity services, salt-water infinity pool, excursions, and the graceful and comfortable accommodations cater to all tastes and budgets.
Join me at this dream location for yoga overlooking the Pacific and experience a deep connection to your true essence inspired by nature. Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned practitioner options will be offered to support your growth as we root to earth and lift up to the sky.
Each day will start with meditation, a slow-flow asana and pranayama practice and in the afternoon a restorative practice of SATYA (sensory awareness training for yoga asana) and Yoga Nidra. You will have free time to just be and explore the three-mile long beach, learn to surf and zip-wire.
There is a delicious selection of food including a breakfast of an assortment of fresh fruit, raisins, nuts, cooked oatmeal, gallo pinto plantain, onion pickles and scrambled eggs. Lunch including pea and mint raw cold soup, curried carrot salad, watermelon balsamic salad, sun-dried tomato rice salad, crispy cauliflower, spinach tofu and stir fry Vegan spread. Dinner of broccoli and spinach soup, kale and apple salad, string-bean salad, pumpkin and corn curry, tofu paneer, vegetable koftas and naan bread. Fish is offered three times during the week.
