Irena Bartolec’s Tailored Retreats


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 Azul Ocean Club, a beach front Boutique Hotel, situated at Playa Azul, a heavenly location on the Guanacaste coast of Costa Rica, in on one of the world’s 5 blue zones.

The Azul Ocean Club offers quiet and fully equipped villas and rooms, with private entrances and balconies that give guests the opportunity to enjoy a relaxed and pleasant stay.

All the rooms are air-conditioned with spacious private bathrooms, volcanic stone showers, and hi speed Internet access.

Each room has a terrace or balcony with a hammock and outdoor dinning area where you can enjoy your book or take an afternoon siesta.

The Azul Ocean Club has an outdoor swimming pool, gym, game room, hot tub, beach front restaurant, pedal boards, kayaks, kids playground and and much more.

To respect the current times, this retreat has a very limited attendance. All of our activities will be held outdoors, including meals and yoga. The restaurant and yoga area are both outside and spacious, with a steady ocean breeze. Mats and props will be sanitised after each class. Rooms and community area are treated daily according to the Costa Rican health protocols.
