QUEPOS, COSTA RICA - August 17-24, 2019

Flyer.jpg

“Pura Vida!” The unofficial mantra of Costa Rica. It means “Pure Life,” and it’s the truth. From pristine beaches to breathtaking rain forests, to volcanoes dripping lava and a cornucopia of tropical wildlife, Costa Rica is indeed a land of pure life. Give yourself a break this August and join me for a week of yoga, relaxation, jungle exploration, gourmet food and an immersion into the land of Pura Vida.

Our base for this adventure will be the stunning Vista Hermosa Estate, a five-star, fully modern villa surrounded by lush rainforest and just a five minute walk to its own secluded beach. In addition to morning and afternoon yoga, as well as twice-daily gourmet chef-prepared meals, we’ll also have easy access to Manuel Antonio National Park, one of the most stunning rainforests in all of Central America. Optional activities include white water rafting, horseback riding, canopy tours, ATV tours, surfing or simply relaxing on the beach or by the pool at the villa. It promises to be an exceptional adventure, and I hope you’ll join me!

MALLORCA, SPAIN - March 21-27, 2020

There’s just something about Mallorca. Maybe it’s those azure waters and white sandy beaches. Maybe it’s those rugged mountains and stunning coastlines. Maybe it’s the idyllic Mediterranean vibes, pastoral landscapes, old world charm and amazing cuisine. Or maybe it’s all of those things and more. Whatever it is, it makes Mallorca special. So much so that it’s drawn everyone from great artists to royal families to champion athletes to its shores, as well as many a beauty seeker, nature lover, culture-and-history buff and foodie. There is something for everyone on this enchanting island off the sunny eastern coast of Spain… and now comes an opportunity to discover what’s there for you!

For this Yoga Adventure, we’ll be staying at the spectacular Cal Reiet, a stunningly beautiful boutique retreat in Santanyí, a gorgeous small town near the southern coast of the island. In addition to morning and afternoon yoga sessions, as well as twice-daily gourmet chef prepared plant-based meals (all made with fresh, locally-sourced ingredients, many of them from Cal Reiet’s own garden), we will also be venturing out to explore some beautiful and fascinating places on the island, including the Es Fangar vineyard, as well as the Son Moragues olive oil estancia. There will also be an optional hike to San Salvador, as well as a bike tour for anyone who is interested. And of course, there are beautiful and secluded beaches in abundance, including Cala Mondrago, which is just a short bike ride away.

This promises to be a unique and wonderful adventure, and I hope you will join me!
