Costa Rica Yoga & Meditation Retreat

Explore a unique, subtle and exploratory approach to yoga and meditation with Patricia and Surya, who bring 33 years of experience to their teaching.  Open your senses to the prana-filled air of the rainforest and the expansive views across the Golfo Dulce inlet to the South Pacific while beginning, deepening or inspiring your yoga and meditation practice. Awaken each day surrounded by pristine rainforest and rugged natural beauty in the area that is called the Hawaii of Costa Rica.  Walk just steps to swim in the Pacific or explore the secluded beaches. Rest each night revitalized, renewed, relaxed and re-connected to a deepened sense of yourself and what truly matters in your life. Striking a balance between the vibrant energy of nature and the material comforts of present day, Blue Osa Retreat Center offers a rare opportunity to be immersed in one of the most bio-diverse areas in the world. This yoga retreat offers four sessions daily.

Teachers

Patricia Brown has been teaching yoga and meditation retreats since 1981.  Patricia's teaching is a quiet exploration of Awareness...Yin yoga, breath, gravity, silence, quiet sitting. She focuses on ease and naturalness and on noticing and sensing what we already are. She creates a silent, undistracted environment for developing a quality of listening from which a self-referenced practice and orientation to one's inner life can emerge.

 

Surya-Chandra Das began studying hatha yoga and meditation in 1988 and has taught classes and yoga retreats since 1990. His teaching is a blend of the various teachings he has experienced and his own explorations. Nondual Awareness or Presence is the foundation of the retreats.  Surya is interested in helping participants understand the depth and breadth of Yoga - that it is so much more than performing asanas (postures) and can permeate every aspect of our lives well beyond the retreat – that at its essence it is the practice of Love. 

Testimonials

“Coming to Blue Osa is like entering a magnificent painting. The setting is surreal from the secluded beach to the spectacular yoga studio and accommodations. The staff is amazing and the food, out of this world. Running a retreat here was truly one of the most heart opening, expansive, and wonderful experiences of my life.”

 

“I highly recommend this hidden sanctuary! It was quite simply the best trip I have ever planned for myself. I went on a yoga tetreat with my teacher whom I respect very much, and I am so grateful that she led me to this place! From the hammock where all you can see as you look upward are the tops of the Palm trees and the sky and all you can hear are the tranquil sounds of the ocean and the birds…to the yoga studio where the view and sounds are quite similar, this place is a little slice of heaven. Treat yourself right – you will certainly leave this place feeling enlightened, relaxed and happy.”

 

“This was my first time leading an international yoga retreat. Yogi Aaron was helpful throughout the process. The staff is comprised of happy, loving ticos and ticas (Costa Ricans). Blue Osa has a family feel to it that made me feel very comfortable. The open air yoga room was perfect, the food was amazing, and love permeated everything, helping us all unwind, open up and let go. It was an amazing journey.”

Meals

Blue Osa believes nutritious, wholesome food is not only the foundation for a productive life, but is also essential for a happy one. Food that nourishes our soul not only needs to be healthy, but it also needs to be tasty and delicious! Blue Osa is devoted to serving the freshest ingredients possible that are delivered daily to our kitchen. Locally-sourced red snapper and mahi mahi are freshly-caught by neighboring fishermen. Whether it’s pineapple from the Blue Osa property or eggs from the farmers down the road, all produce supports the local economy. Loving hands knead homemade bread, gardeners gather herbs from the greenhouse, and knowledgeable chefs create a gourmet menu under the guidance of Chef Marie. This is truly a “farm to table” dining experience.
