Emily Hyland & Frank Wildermann Yoga Retreat

January 29th to February 5th, 2022


Our retreat will focus on PASSION:

How can you discover your passion?

How do you actively find ways to cultivate and pursue it?

How do you define and ultimately overcome obstacles that get in your way of pursuing your passion?

As always, we will hold an intimate and compassionate space for you to explore these questions, move and breath deeply, and connect with your fellow practitioners. Expect daily yoga classes that will offer both strong vigorous vinyasa flows and also on the ground deep restorative/yin practices. We will also offer optional seated meditations, guided journaling sessions, group hikes, participation in a local service project, along with a host of other surprises!

Pranamar means “breath of the sea” and is located in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica at the southernmost tip of the Nicoya Peninsula.

Pranamar is a luxurious, yet intimate, beachfront boutique hotel and retreat center surrounded by lush greenery, a free form salt water pool and gorgeous ocean waters. All of Pranamar’s accommodations are elegant in design and decor. All rooms have their own bathroom, A/C, ceiling fans and wi-fi. The Yoga Shala at Pranamar is open on three sides to let in both the sea breeze and sounds of the jungle as you practice.

Santa Teresa is a small beach town that has recently been declared one of Costa Rica’s most spectacular beach destinations. It offers relaxing white sand beaches, exciting jungle and tropical rainforests.

In an effort to host a retreat that is truly off the beaten path we specifically chose Pranamar Villas and Yoga. Pranamar is located at the bottom of a peninsula in southern Costa Rica. To get there from NYC requires two flights. There are daily flights to San Jose (both non-stop and 1 stop). However an additional flight within Costa Rica is required from San Jose to Tambor. This will be on a smaller airplane with a flying time of approx 25 minutes. Once everyone has booked their flights to San Jose, we will attempt to gather students collectively into small groups to fly on this second flight together. Please note there will be an additional fee of approx $300 (roundtrip) for this second flight. Once we land in Tambor, Pranamar is an additional 45 minute drive, this transport is included in your payment and will be organized by us and Pranamar.



$750 and Room Request (Single/Double/Quad/Shared Bed) due ASAP to hold your spot (Venmo to Frank or Em/Cash/Check)
