March 4 – 11, 2017
Transport yourself to one of the most bio-diverse places on the entire planet. Join us on a yogic journey to a secluded eco-lodge set in the pristine and captivating Osa Peninsula near Corcovado National Park in southwestern Costa Rica. Whether practicing yoga, meditating, hiking with the possibility of encountering rare wildlife, birdwatching, or walking/playing on a black sand beach, this will be a truly a unique experience.
“Paradise. Luna Lodge is the perfect balance between rain forest rusticity and total pampering. Every single person who works there is gracious, warm, and extremely competent. Ask for almost anything; the answer will be, “Con much gusto!”. Evalena and Ariel were also in perfect balance with each other, offering two yoga classes each day. They left me with yet another feeling of perfect balance–mind, body, spirit. It was also just so much fun! I can’t wait to go back. Pure vida!” –Susan Lemak (2016 retreat)
