We usually start at 7.30 in the morning with a cup of ginger tea on the yoga mat followed by a two hour session including asanas, pranayama, meditation plus final relaxation with or without sound bowls.
All of above happen in a ten minute walk distance from the bungalows, through a cleard path in the forest of Cazuelapark. There is a nice pavillon nearby a waterfall and sometimes you can see large exotic blue butterflies or toucans. (If you are not used to functioning with empty stomac, we recommend half a banana also called the fruit of yoga).

Shortly afte 9.30 am a well deserved, hearty breakfast takes place near the Bungalows. The time after breakfast is usually yours to spend as you wish, except on day two or three, where we take a river walk to experience the jungle from a different perspective. This ends with refreshing dip in the waterfall pool. In the the mornings or early afternoons you can also enjoy our relaxing massages, with oil and hot stones, finishing with the healing vibrations of sounds of singing bowls on your body.

In the afternoon we meet again at 3pm for another one and a half-two hour session; this can vary from yoga and meditation, nature experience, moving meditation or dancing…
One afternoon we practice yoga and qi gong at the beach and one evening we may go out for dinner together.

If you have any allergies or follow the blood type diet please let us know your dietary requirements when registering with the program and if you are a vegetarian or a vegan it should also be noted at the registration.

The evening is free, so you can spend as you wish but majority of people like to go to bed early which is welcomed as part of the program.

It will give you the chance to visit one of the nearby parks; Manuel Antonio National Park or, further down south Corcovado National Park.
