Join us May 10th-17th for a week of yoga, wellness, and relaxation at the beautiful Luna Lodge.
Luna Lodge is truly a unique experience not found elsewhere in Costa Rica or the world! The lodge was constructed by Costa Rican people with the issues of conservation and preservation of the rainforest a priority. The lodge has been developed with creative initiative and commitment to the ideals of educating visitors to be environmentally and culturally sensitive. The 1600 square foot, open air, yoga platform hangs high over the rainforest hillside, providing an awe inspiring view of the Pacific Ocean, rainforest, and wildlife. Choose to stay in one of the thatched roof bungalows, a hacienda-styled room, or a completely enclosed “nature-lover tent with private bathroom and balcony overlooking the canopy of the rain forest.
Lana and her staff have created a wonderful blend of natural landscaping and organic agricultural abundance surrounding the lodge. Counted among the fruit trees are mango, water apple, papaya, banana, china fruit, mandarin orange, lemon, cacao, avocado, and cashew. The pleasant, intoxicating aromas of ylang-ylang, frangipani, and night-blooming jasmine permeate the grounds. Their talented chefs will create dishes to cleanse and heal our bodies. We will have 2 days of raw food prepared by an incredible chef who will offer a workshop to teach us all how to create the dishes when we are in our daily lives.
The perfect yoga accompaniment is surfing. Whether you’re pro or a beginner, the excitement and challenges of riding the waves can be transcended from the yoga mat to the surf board. Warm water year-round, and rolling waves make Boca Sombrero an excellent place to learn to surf, or improve your skills if you are more experienced. Their instructors are fun, professional, and fully qualified.
Our first week at Boca Sombrero we will be practicing vinyasa yoga which suited for all levels and abilities. Vinyasa Yoga is a flowing, dynamic practice that builds strength, stamina, and flexibility using the breath. Moving through yoga postures also helps to create a space that fosters steadiness, meditation, and mindfulness and allows us to find a deeper and more fulfilling connection to ourselves, others, and the world around us.
Our second week at Luna Lodge we will practice two yoga classes a day. In our morning classes we will be practicing vinyasa yoga which is suited for all levels and abilities and in our evening classes we will be practicing a combination of styles based on what our bodies and minds need for that day. We will practice a combination of restorative yoga, yin yoga, pranayama, kundalini, meditation, and relaxation. Our goal for this week is help you find your individual balance. We will work together to make sure this happens.
