Yogeswari and April Joy

Annual Jivamukti Yoga & Surfing Retreat

Join Yogeswari, April Joy, and the world-class team of surfing instructors from Surf Pacifico for a monumental retreat experience at Blue Spirit, a luxury retreat center nestled on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica.

This week promises to be an unforgettable journey, as you will dive deeply into the practical and mystical practices of Jivamukti yoga. Three hours each morning will be dedicated to asana practice, in “El Pacifico” an open-air studio, surrounded by Guanacaste trees, tropical flowers, hummingbirds, and the crashing waves of the Pacific Ocean. Whether you are brand new to yoga or have been practicing for years this intimate setting provides the optimal learning environment to deepen your practice.

Together we will chant and meditate, and once you get moving you can expect lots of hands-on assists, alignment instruction, mini asana labs, vinyasa breakdowns and partner work. Three fresh and delicious vegan meals will be served buffet style each day, with an abundance of rich tropical fruits and vegetables. There is also a separate bar with made to order elixirs, superfood smoothies, vegan treats, coffee and organic wine, which can be ordered to your room at an additional charge. Day excursions and on-site spa services can be arranged which includes phenomenal massages.

Retreat with us to Blue Spirit for an unforgettable week of Jivamukti yoga, saltwater goodness and as much activity or rest as you desire, you will leave feeling rejuvenated, and glowing from the inside out.
