February 2-9th, 2019, with Lily and Oliver, Costa Rica

Travel with us to a land teeming with life, beauty and abundance: Costa Rica. For one week in February, we will immerse ourselves in the living classroom of Finca Luna Nueva (New Moon Farm). This extraordinary getaway is also a working farm and educational center. The hosts have deep ties to the land and are leaders in regenerative agricultural practices.  They lovingly cultivate hundreds of species of fruit and vegetables, as well as more than 300 medicinal plants.  We are so excited to share this magical and sacred place with you. 

Each morning the rainforest itself will inspire your yoga, as we move through an invigorating vinyasa practice accompanied by a playlist of bird and frog songs. Around the open aired yoga pavilion the vibrant greens and supercharged air of the jungle inspire awareness and conscious breathing. In the afternoons we will practice at a slower and softer pace as we integrate the day's adventures and turn our attention to the inner realm of our true nature.

During this retreat, you will have an opportunity to:

Refresh your senses, reengage with your body, and recommit to your health.
Reconnect to the Earth as you hike the pristine rainforests, play on the lake and relax in natural hot springs fed by the Volcano Arenal.
Develop personal practices that nourish your spirit and reunite you with your own radiance.

 

ALL levels of yoga experience welcome!  

We are so excited to share this incredible week with you. Together we will practice yoga, pranayama, and meditation twice daily, dine on delicious organic meals, soak in the lodge's chlorine-free pool and solar powered hot tub. Each day brings a different adventure- taking a tour of the farm, paddleboarding on Lake Arenal, soaking in the volcanic fed hotsprings, learning how chocolate is made, and more. You can choose additional adventures or spa treatments, or just unwind by the pool with that book you've been wanting to read.

 

About Lily and Oliver We relish the freedom we have found through the daily practice of yoga and meditation.  For us yoga is about cultivating harmony in your mind, breath, and body, taking the practice from your mat into your everyday life. It's about letting go of negative thought patterns, and unveiling your own highest potential. Read more about Lily here and Oliver here.

Earthbag House (SOLD OUT)

Casa de Barro is an adobe “earth-bag”house made from the deep red clay found on the farm.  The spacious circular structure was  handmade by the Finca Luna Nueva farm team with local participation, and the building materials make it feel like this house is a natural extension of the land.
