About the Yoga Retreat

Going on retreat is a gift. It is a powerful contribution to yourself. An allowance of self care. Rewarding yourself, unapologetically.

On a virgin beach in Costa Rica, surrounded by the sounds of ocean and tropical jungle, value yourself. Rest, practice, and rejuvenate.

My private retreats are customised to fit your needs. After our initial consultation, I will create a yoga and mindfulness program specifically suited to your experience and goals. Whether to support your ongoing practices, or to start from the beginning and strategically build a foundation for the future, these tailored retreats truly allow a person the space and time to receive individual attention from a teacher, and cultivate a practice that is authentic and sustaining.

Together we will reinforce your well being, balance your mind, and keep your body fit and healthy.

This private service allows you the flexibility to reserve and book a retreat in accordance with the dates that are suitable for you. To have exclusive access to a teacher, and to experience peace and discretion without the social constraints or pressures of a group setting.

Breakfast and dinner are included in the retreat, and we can design a menu that suits your dietary requirements and goals.


Our retreat is taking place at The beach front villa,Rancho De Linda.

Rancho De Linda is a cozy villa on a sprawling patch of land, sat on a low cliff directly above Playa Azul and the Pacific Ocean.

This modern Tico ranch home has been transformed into a retreat centre, hosting travellers, families, yogis and peace seekers since 1998.

The property is a private oasis of gardens and salt water pools, with a luxurious view of the Pacific Ocean and the Western horizon.  The lush nature of Costa Rica abounds in this wild area, with long empty beaches and rugged mountain ranges.

At RDL one can truly embrace the peaceful lifestyle and pure nature that Costa Rica encourages.

Our open yoga area looks over the beaches, waves and sunsets.  The space is roofed and well shaded, with a constant ocean breeze.

Our salt water pool and additional lounging pool is always warm and inviting.

Our private path to the beach, or numerous sitting areas amongst the gardens, offer peace and privacy to those searching for escape and connection.  

Our personal chefs are well trained in preparing healthy, balanced food according to your personal preferences and requirements.

All of our food is locally sourced from our farmers, bakers or fishermen. In this way we are supporting our little local communities and growing together.
