Yoga & Running Retreats

Playa Azul / Guanacaste


“Run often. Run Long. But never outrun your joy for running!”

At first sight yoga and running seems like polar opposites, but in fact they greatly compliment each other, and combined together they can foster healthy and happy lives.

While running is more cardio based, yoga keeps our body in balance, and deepens our sense of mindful connection between the body, mind and breath. That can help runners to recover faster, lower the risk of injuries, and stay focused when challenges are arise.

Our SOUL RUNNER Yoga and Running Retreats are specially designed for runners who are curious about how to implement yoga practices into their daily training routines, or want to expand an already existing yoga practices.

Each morning we will start with mindfulness and breathing exercises, followed by group or individual trail running on near by trails. In the afternoons we will practice restorative yoga, specially curated for runners.

Evenings are reserved for breath taking sunsets, bonfires and fun times.

Our retreat location is a perfect compliment to your much needed weekend getaway, providing a healthy atmosphere where we can trail run and restore our bodies.


This Soul Runner retreat takes place at The Azul Ocean Club, a beach front boutique hotel, located at Playa Azul, a serene destination on the Guanacaste coast of Costa Rica, in on one of the world’s 5 blue zones.

The area of Playa Azul and Marbella have plenty of dirt roads and trails suitable for a variety of running styles. Trails  here are an enjoyable combinations of beach front and low hill  running, or venture up the surrounding mountains for sustained climbing and bigger elevation.

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 high 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.
