Now let’s set the scene here…. beautiful white sanded beach, spectacular fresh food, yoga retreat specialists, Balinese like architecture, just steps to the ocean, Costa Rica. Can this get any better? This is Pranamar Oceanfront Villas and Yoga Retreat and what better place to experience a yoga retreat than here.
Pranamar Oceanfront Villas and Yoga Retreat is located in the trendy, foodie oceanside town of Santa Teresa which is about next to perfect. This small, cosmopolitan setup is a mixture of surfers, yogis, food lovers and lovers of the good life all in one little place but what a place it is. This is beyond amazing in so many ways and will make you want to come back time after time.
As one guest stated on Trip Advisor about this fantastic getaway, she called “My soul`s home”, “I love everything about this place. The people, the food, the pool, the beach, the beautiful Yoga Shala. This place just feels like I have come home. It makes me happy being there and I wish I could stay forever.”. Vacations should make you feel like that, shouldn`t they?
So, let`s see why Pranamar is your Soul`s home away from home at Santa Teresa.
A yoga experience for everyone
The Yoga Shala is a place of welcome, of balance and well-being. This beachside paradise has a yoga experience for everyone. One of the most beautiful things about a shala is that it represents a home or a school and it is a space that brings people together with a sense of community as its core.
So, whether you are a beginner or a teacher, in your twenties or in your sixties, curious or committed, you will be welcomed with the same enthusiasm. The Pranamar Yoga Classes will challenge you on a physical level but they will connect your body and spirit. And when you have the sounds of the sea close by, the experience is even more beautiful.
Pranamar offers yoga retreats throughout the year so there will surely be some dates that will suit you. Thanks to its fantastic location, your yoga-based vacations can be even combined into a surf and yoga retreat or a belly dance and yoga retreat. Add on some amazing food and adventure activities and your perfect time in paradise is ready to be lived.
As there is a possibility for everyone, this very loved and respected Yoga Retreat also runs classes for future yoga teachers under the guidance of wonderful, devoted mentors. On the other end of the scale, if you are just wanting to do a yoga class daily and then head to the beach or zip-lining or relaxing by the pool or in your beautiful bungalow or villa, that just sounds perfect too.
Yoga and new friends
One of the wonderful aspects of yoga is the community atmosphere that is created. The common interest and love for yoga is a wonderful way to make new friends and get to know people from all walks of life and from all over the world. Through spirituality and kindness, your world will grow and it is a great way to celebrate life.
Making new friends is always better over a delicious meal. Pranamar has beautiful spaces to share moments with special people including the Kavita Restaurant, the hotel’s on-site eatery that will entice your taste buds. This unforgettable dining experience, not only specializes in creating culinary experiences using local, fresh produce, it is in open-air bamboo and wooden setting overlooking the river-like pool. This is where fun and laid back conversations with new friends unite.
Yoga and the food.
As one guest recently posted about Kavita Restaurant, “The restaurant, Kavita, was outstanding – already miss walking to every meal barefoot.” And another said, “The food was unlike anything I’ve ever tasted, so delicious. It was beautiful and relaxing and so much fun. I can’t wait to go back.”.
When you are not at Kavitas eating the delicious, fresh food or at the yoga class, Santa Teresa has some great options for filling up your days in paradise. Pranamar is on the beach and you are only steps away from white sand, palm trees, rock pools, and the surf. Pick up a refreshing smoothie from Kavitas and head to the beach with your new yoga friends for a day under the sun.
