Costa Rica 2021

Everything led us to this

28 years in the making, Channon Burns and I are so thrilled to offer the adventure of a lifetime on the Nicoya Peninsula of Costa Rica. Pilates, Yoga, Meditation, Ayurveda, Surf, & more. Sponsored by Awaken Ayurveda, Pure Pilates PDX, and Wren & Wild. Reserve your spot today! Booking fast!

what's included:


8 nights in your choice of accommodations at www.pranamarvillas.com

Includes Taxes & resort fees. See pricing below for the Villa and Bungalow options - If you have questions please feel free to ask!  Retreat begins Saturday March 13, 2021 at 4p and ends Sunday March 21, 2021 at 9a.  

Breakfast and Dinner

Buffet style breakfast in the covered open air dining room and formal(ish) sunset dinner beach side. Each meal includes lots of fresh fruit and vegetables, local cuisine and internationally inspired with both Meat and Vegetarian options - GF & dairy free on request.  We've realized over the years that most folks like having the option to skip lunch, may be off site during the day or simply order something small like a smoothie so, we are leaving that up to you this year.  Each of these meals includes a freshly prepared juice.  We will have lots of fresh fish on the menu, too! Tips for these pre-planned retreat meals are also included. 

Shuttle Transportation from Tambor

Once we have everyone's Sansa Flight Arrival Information to Tambor, Pranamar will arrange our shuttles for us. We've included this into your stress-free experience. :-)

Yoga (hatha, restorative, yin, nidra, aerial), Pilates, Meditation, Green Beauty products, & more!

We have an amazing week planned for you with plenty of free time to soak up the magical goodness of Costa Rica. The schedule will include 1-2 yoga classes per day, pilates each day, silent and guided meditation, 2 beach side ayurveda workshop-style discussions, dharma talks, goody bags and more. The middle of the day is yours to explore, rest, swim, surf,  & frolic. 

Travel Tips

We will help you every step of the way.  Once you've booked your spot on the retreat you'll receive a welcome packet with lots of helpful travel tips!  We can help you with planning, booking flights, pre- and post-retreat suggestions, preparing for the week, packing, etc.

what's not included



You'll fly into SJO International Airport in San Jose Costa Rica. You'll then book a hopper flight to the peninsula (Tambor airstrip) through www.flysansa.com. We'll arrange your pick up there and shuttle you to the Retreat. 


There is so much to do in the area. You can book directly with the lovely staff at Pranamar once you arrive. Feel free to visit www.pranamrvillas.com for more info. A quick sample list: snorkeling, fishing, ATVg, waterfall hikes, zipline, bird watching, eco preserve tours, surfing, paddleboarding, & much more!  Boogie boards, surfboards, and paddleboards available for use at Pranamar - $20 per day 

Spa Treatments

You can get a massage or facial at the delightful oceanfront spa. You'll book these also once you arrive. 

Lunch, smoothies, any bar items.

We've realized that since the portions of food are plenty, many opt out of lunch or like the opportunity to order off the delicious menu. It's also nice when planning excursions - you have the opportunity to stop in town.  Most of the middle part of the day is yours to choose your adventure.  With each breakfast and dinner comes a different fresh juice and are eaten at the same time each day together.  We also recommend freeing yourself from toxins - technology, alcoholic beverages, drama, etc. 


Tips are welcome and encouraged for housekeeping, spa services, transportation, office help, additional bar and restaurant purchases, surf lessons, etc. You may use your CC at Pranamar for any services booked through them and the additional tips or you can use US dollars. 

If you have any questions about any of these, please feel free to ask!!

Once you've booked, you'll receive Travel Tips, retreat guidelines & suggestions, special instructions, retreat schedule, packing list, requests for dietary restrictions and more! We are here to guide you every step of the way!
