Yoga and Dance in Paradise with Jurian Hughes

March 9 - March 16

Treat yourself to seven delightful days of yoga, dance and adventure in paradise!

For the first time, we’re headed to the Osa Peninsula (one of the most biologically diverse regions of Costa Rica), where we’ll be nestled on a secluded beachfront property surrounded by coconut trees, colorful wildlife and the sounds of the ocean. Our private center is complete with a world-class yoga and movement studio, eco-friendly accommodations, and meals harvested from the on-site organic garden.

You’ll be guided by Jurian Hughes, senior Kripalu faculty for over a decade and an expert retreat leader and movement master, known for her ability to make everyone feel comfortable and at home. You’ll enjoy daily morning yoga and meditation, delightful dives into guided movement and dance, delicious gourmet cuisine created by a French chef, forays into nature to get up-close-and-personal with Costa Rica’s abundant wildlife, early morning dips in the ocean, afternoon swims in the pool, and plenty of time to simply do nothing at all.

Appropriate for all levels of yoga and dance experience (and fitness), Jurian offers something for everyone – yoga both enlivening and restorative, with posture modifications and options to suit your body; meditation; pranayama; daily opportunities to dance, write, hike, swim, and be in community; as well as quiet time for healing massage, private reflection and peaceful solitude.

Your week includes daily sessions with Jurian, accommodations just meters from the ocean, a special group excursion to the Osa Wildlife Sanctuary, all meals, a $50 spa credit, plus plenty of free time to unwind or explore. Optional excursions include a canopy/zipline tour, mangrove kayaking, rainforest jungle hikes, and waterfall rappelling.

Dive into the restoring practices of yoga, dance and meditation, and discover…joy. You do not need to be an aficianado of yoga or dance to attend. Feel free to bring partners and friends who may not wish to participate in all sessions. Everyone is welcome!

Jurian’s 2018 Costa Rica retreat sold out quickly, and we have limited space, so register quickly!
