Costa Rica: Yoga, Service, Adventure
NOVEMBER 2-10, 2019
WELCOME TO PUERTO VIEJO, COSTA RICA
Puerto Viejo de Talamanca is a beautiful town located on the Caribbean side of Costa Rica, just over 250 miles south of San Jose. On our journey, we will pass through the misty heights of Braulio Carriollo National Park, the lush lowlands of Guapiles, and the Caribbean port town of Limon. It is a magical place that is newly on the radar of a global yoga and meditation community. It's a super laid back energy and it's filled with color, local businesses, warm waters, and beach beauty.
SEVA = SELFLESS SERVICE FOR OTHERS
Our service work is focused in Carbon, a small village five miles inland from Puerto Viejo, and will benefit the Peace Through Yoga Foundation. There are about 750 inhabitants spread throughout an area of approximately two square miles and it's a high-need area with children and their families that we have come to know and love. You'll spend an afternoon at our International Center for Girls. They love sharing what they are learning with us and we encourage you bring your interests and talents to share.
All levels of yogis will feel welcomed and supported in our classes that we'll offer daily in the morning and later afternoon in Samasati's tranquil space, nestled in the sacred jungle and “…specifically oriented and designed to facilitate transformation, breakthroughs, celebrations and moments of bliss.” You will be surrounded by sound and color and smells that will infuse your cells with bliss.
All meals, accommodations, and outings are included in the listed price.
