Give the Gift of Relaxation and Rejuvenation!
Give yourself or your loved one the gift of Relaxation and Rejuvenation this year!
Join us for our retreat to the Osa Peninsula in Costa Rica. Fly into San Jose, and travel to our private beachfront retreat center in Puerto Jimenez.
Nestled in the jungle on a deserted 6-mile private beach, the Iguana Lodge hosts the only swimmable beach in Puerto Jimenez. The ocean temperature is an inviting 84 degrees, and the water so clear that Jacques Cousteau declared it to be one of the most pristine waters in the world. Free kayaks and boogie boards allow for plenty of time on the water, and a nearby reef is a great destination for hardcore swimmers or casual kayakers.
There are hammocks for quiet time with a book, sipping a fresh mango smoothie, a cocktail daquiri, or fresh-squeezed lemonade. Small waves make this a perfect location for beginning surfers, lessons are available as are dolphin-spotting boat rides, fishing trips, and kayaking excursions through a mangrove-lined river. Guided jungle hikes, early morning birding with the staff naturalist, waterfall rappelling, and zip-lining are just some of the other adventures. All are led by qualified and trustworthy guides.
Take this opportunity to invigorate your mind, body, and spirit. We will be offering five each of yoga classes, nutritional lectures, and cooking workshops. John and Jan will be leading the lectures and workshops, and will be joined by Julie Rappapport of Yoga Bliss Berkeley, California. Julie’s teaching is warm, inspirational, and adventurous. She has a strong, intuitive way of helping her students develop healthy alignment, and creating an atmosphere where attendees are comfortable being themselves. Yoga for all levels will be provided in the cost of the retreat.
Diet and lifestyle can make all the difference. This is a seven day trip. During each week, five days will offer 2 hour lectures on heart or gut health by John in the mornings. The late afternoons will offer a 2-3 hour cooking classes by Jan. There will be plenty of time to explore, swim, relax and take on some new adventures. Learn to surf, zip line and fish. Come to the Osa Pennisula where you will experience delicious food and a unique adventure all centering on energy and vitality!
