Why Costa Rica? 

Take a trip to this breathtaking country and its incredible beaches, and you may never want to leave. Nosara is located on the Pacific coast in the Nicoya Peninsula of Costa Rica. Its pristine beaches are protected from development, and hundreds of acres of protected forest surround this small but special town. World class surf abounds. The waves are consistent, and the water is warm and safe for swimming. Bodhi Tree is a consciously green resort, designed around nature to leave the jungle exactly as it was meant to be. Meet peace in paradise, Pura Vida!

Kathleen and Wade made this retreat a great experience.  They introduced new things to me and delved into the 8 limbs of the Ashtanga practice.   I highly recommend this to someone who wants to truly enjoy time “living in the moment” because that is what it felt like!” Bianca Ware, Long Beach, CA
