Embark on a weeklong retreat that will inspoire and energize you!
Blend a spa-like atmosphere with lush mountainside views, top it off with some yoga, creative activities and the relaxing sound of soothing river waves and you've just dreamed up your next enchanting adventure. 

Take a journey of self-discovery away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Awaken all your senses in one of Costa Rica's most tranquil and pure environments.

Discover a haven at the foot of the famous Chirripó mountain, considered the highest peak in the country. Let your creativity run wild as you experience the immense beauty that surrounds you. Lush tropical flowers, flowing rivers and green mountain peaks touching the clear blue sky.

Be inspired to paint, photograph or draw in the lush gardens of tropical flowers. Walk through Cloudbridge Reserve to the base of an impressive waterfall. Spend a day on the Pacific coast and enjoy the endless beaches and warm waters of Ballena National Park, home to the famous Whale's Tail. These are just some of the exciting adventures that await you on this unique yoga retreat. 

Each day will include periods of guided yoga, meditation, silence, nature, discussion and creative activities with your teacher extraordinaire, Elaine Clark. Replenish your body, mind and heart through spacious, quiet and reflective time in nature and connecting with like-minded souls. If you need to recharge, this is the perfect escape for you. 


Head to the heart of the Talamanca Mountain Range located in the south central portion of Costa Rica. It is here, nestled between wooded hills and the flowing Chirripó River that you will find Rio Chirripó Lodge, a refuge from the pressures of a busy world, a place of refreshment for mind, body and soul.
