Pura Vida Costa Rica: Yoga, Sacred Rituals, Beach & Jungle Retreat

about this event

Get ready for an unforgettable and transformative all-inclusive yoga retreat in Costa Rica with sacred rituals and plenty of beach & jungle adventures.

In Costa Rica, Pura Vida is more than just a saying—it’s a way of life. Pura Vida is an expression of happiness, optimism, and living life to the fullest.

It’s time to free your mind and reconnect with a simpler way of BEING. It’s time to practice LIVING abundantly in the present moment. Joy is always accessible in the present moment— let’s practice this together. 

Join Katrina, Tankut, and Elise for an 8 day yoga immersion in Costa Rica to dive deep within, reconnect with the natural world, and rediscover your most natural state – loving awareness.

Our retreat at Rayos Del Sol will hold space for you to relax, refresh, cleanse the lens of your perception, and awaken to the power of the infinite present moment.

Over the course of 8 days, we’ll co-create a loving and non-judgmental community that facilitates personal growth and expansion.

This retreat will offer you the tools, guidance, and support you need to begin to move beyond the limitations of your own mind. This retreat will hold space for you to see, feel, and experience yourself and your life in an entirely new way.

We’ll spend our retreat days working with abundant healing practices and sacred rituals that support physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual growth. Twice daily practices (morning + evening) will guide you to develop daily rituals and habits that support your long-term wellness, vitality, and happiness.

Yoga asana (vinyasa, yin and/or restorative), meditation, pranayama, sacred rituals, philosophy chats, and guided self-reflection journaling will help you feel more connected, inspired, and present in the moment.

Katrina’s experience as a mindset coach will offer powerful insights about how the mind works, while offering tools to help you build self-awareness and train your mind to support your happiness and personal evolution.

Mindset & philosophy will be interwoven into our daily yoga sessions and will offer you the tools and guidance to:

  • Observe your thoughts and feelings with non-judgmental awareness
  • Develop mental and emotional resilience
  • Listen to your inner voice and intuition
  • Release the old and welcome the new
  • Heal from unresolved past pain
  • Evolve into the best version of yourself

In addition to our daily practices, there will be plenty of time to relax, explore, and adventure around Costa Rica – check out our list of included excursions + experiences!

Regardless of your current yoga experience, this retreat will hold space for you to evolve your personal practice and empower you to move forward in your life with powerful insights, profound knowledge, and a fresh perspective on yourself.

The benefits of this retreat will extend well beyond our time spent together in Costa Rica. The experiences that we’ll share together will serve as a powerful reminder enjoy the simple things in life, appreciate everything you have, and make the most of every moment.
