This five day retreat has several purposes such as relaxation, coming to self understanding, get closer to nature and finding your inner and outer peace.

The "In Harmony With Nature" Retreat is held in Portasol; Your journey begins at noon with the check in and a guide.

The first yoga class takes place on the first day in the afternoon and this is where it all begins: with a balanced program of yoga, meditation, dance, sensibilisation for the chakras and other things in the wonderfully green, wild rain forest in the bosom of nature.

This is a fifth day (4 nights) retreat with half board. Yoga and meditation experiences are desirable but not required.

The retreat ends on the sixth day at noon. You will continue your trip on your own, perhaps to nearby Manuel Antonio National Park, or further south to Corcovado National Park or 3 days relax in Drake Bay …

The Program:

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.

At 17:30 the delicious dinner is served, all Ticostile (costarican). Please let us know in advance if you have any incompatibilities or if you are eating vegetarian food.

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.

On day seven of your stay, the retreat closes at noon. After that you can continue your journey on your own. It will give you the chance to visit one of the nearby parks; Manuel Antonio National Park or, further down south Corcovado National Park. Or you enjoy a 7. night at Portasol as a gift for free including breakfast!!!
