Soul Culture Yoga Retreat
in Paradise with Jaishree
Costa Rica January 23 – 30, 2016

Immerse yourself in the gorgeous tropical landscape of the Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica’s last remaining low-level rainforest preserve. Live lush in the jungle and blissful on the beach. Attune your body with the rise and fall of the sun. Meditate on the ripening of coconuts. Cleanse in the ebb and flow of pristine ocean waves. Pura Vida! This is Soul Culture!


Your Inner God/dess Awaits You


Want to reconnect with your perfect soul? For us, creating abundance means diving deep into our eternal transcendent spirit, clearing out space, and rekindling the fire of our bliss. Add the natural elements of untouched jungle and ocean, and you have a master recipe for creating Soul Culture Yoga.


Coconut-oil-benefits

Our days begin by watching the sunrise, and ends to the tune of singing creepers. We eat delicious pure vegetarian meals, home cooked with love. We swim and surf in the ocean near high tide, and lounge by the pool to rest when it’s low. Our yoga is dynamic, devoted, and fun for all levels. Spa treatments of massage, facials, wraps, and acupuncture envelop our body and mind in bliss. Daily adventures like waterfall river hikes, horseback riding, kayaking, birdwatching, or visits to the local arts fair keep us totally alive and inspired. Everyday, we’ll enjoy Osa papaya and mango while stunningly red parrots flock in a nearby tree. The sand feels warm under our feet. Life becomes close to perfect, and we can connect to our soul individually and in family style community.

In Costa Rica the motto is ‘Pura Vida’.

Pura Vida means attuning yourself to the simple rhythms of life. We add the profound practice of yoga to these elements, and create sacred community for transformation.
The natural abundance of the Osa Peninsula will draw out your radiance. Everything on the Osa is ripe for falling in love with life.
Miraculous moments happen all day, and we intend to practice bliss.

How do we get there?

You’re responsible for purchasing flights, both to Costa Rica (San Jose airport) and to the the Osa herself (Puerto Jimenez airport).

US airlines cover the 1st flight. Sansa or Nature Air cover the 2nd.

Both Sansa http://www.flysansa.com/en/home and Nature Air http://www.natureair.com/ are good companies. We try Sansa first as we find they make traveling a bit easier. Be very sure to give them your US flights. You need at least 2 hours in between arriving and departing to allow for customs, baggage check, etc.

Ask us about for the name of our travel agent.

Plan to leave very early and travel half the day on Saturday January 23.

The “puddle jumper” flight to the Southern Pacific tip of the country is a truly phenomenal view and highlight of our journey. You are picked up fresh off that flight, and driven by taxi to our home at Boca Sombrero. Located near Matapalo beach, world famous for it’s amazing surf, Boca Sombrero sits on the Osa Peninsula of Costa Rica. It’s one of the last low-land rainforest preserves in the world, and you can feel the blessed energy through the sounds and sights of it’s animal life. Our house Mother Monika will graciously greet you and take you to your room. We’ll meet for dinner at 6:30pm.

Discover Your Bliss through
JaiShreeYoga Soul Mapping™

jaishree-bio

Soul Mapping is the time tested yoga process of reclaiming your passionate radiant being. Our classes involve vinyasa flow yoga, pranayama breath technique, ayurveda ‘science of life’ diet and lifestyle consultation, chakra cleansing (subtle body energy field freedom), guided meditation, archetype journey (bringing union to the male and female figures inside all of us), dream journaling, sacred mantra chanting (mind detox), and bhakti philosophy education.

Retreat classes are special as we attune to the time of the day we practice, and get to focus on goal poses, group assisting and play.

Sacred Mantra Kirtan

The roots of kirtan go back 528 years to the birth of a saint named Caitanya Mahaprabhu. Millions of people are experiencing the benefits of mantra chanting today because of His glory. But what are we chanting? And to whom are we chanting? Jaishree is initiated into the unbroken lineage of Bhakti Vedanta. You will enjoy the ecstasy of chanting the great mantras and hearing their meanings and benefits. These stories pierce right to our very essence and leave us with sweet dreams and compassionate moods.

TRAVEL & PACKING & PASSPORT/VISA

Packages are all inclusive of accommodations, meals, yoga. *Airfare, Taxis, Adventures + Spa Services not included.
There is a $29 airport tax when you leave the country, payable by cash or credit card.
If you are greatly pleased by your staff, you can show that with a nice tip upon departure (we recommend $50 per person).
We recommend you prepare about $500 for your stay. Most decide they want to enjoy spa services and adventure trips. Although we’ve had good luck with them ourselves, the ATM’s in town are not always reliable.
Pack Lightly! We’re in the jungle, it’s hot. Bring swim wear, yoga wear, a sarong, shorts, hiking shoes or sneakers for the river hike, flashlight/headlamp (a must), bug spray, sunscreen, your meds, a book yoga mat, and a water bottle. Our yoga deck is so lovely and fully stocked with mats and blocks, but always best in sweaty times to use your own mat.
The water in Costa Rica is amazing! No need to buy bottles. Drink up.
You MUST have a valid passport to enter Costa Rica (and it must not expire within 30 days of your arrival for U.S. citizens and 180 days for some other nationalities).
You do not need a Visa if you are a U.S. citizen. Other nationalities should check with your consulate.
You do not need any vaccinations.
