Yoga, Mindfulness + Creativity Costa Rica Retreat: February 17-24, 2018

Join Kimberly Wilson for a week-long escape filled with yoga, creativity, and mindfulness. Savor the tropical splendor of Pura Vida Spa—a private mountainside estate enveloped in lush gardens surrounded by coffee plantations.

This experience includes daily yoga and mindfulness sessions, creative play, and ample time for relaxation. Spend down time reading poolside, soaking in the hot tub, napping in a hammock, or enjoying a luxurious spa treatment.

Open to late beginner to advanced students, all classes will be taught at Tranquil Space Open Flow level with variations and modifications for your body. No experience needed with mindfulness or creative play. Bring your beginner’s mind and open heart.

This retreat is for those seeking a safe space to unwind, connect with their creative spirit, and deepen their yoga and meditation practices.



Both Saturdays are travel days with no programming so arrive and depart at your leisure on Saturday.
