February 7 – 14, 2024, with Tama Soble
in association with Merit Travel
This Retreat is full. Please contact the Studio to be placed on the waiting list.
The Beach Garden is a beautiful private property located in Nosara, Costa Rica. It is one of a handful of villas bordering the protected beach reserve of Playa Guiones, with its own 200 metre path through the mangrove to the ocean. The charming town of Nosara is a short walk away. Taking long walks along the ocean, body-surfing in the waves, and visiting the famous turtle nesting refuge nearby at Ostional may be part of our adventure.
Our yoga space is a gorgeous open air platform. The peace and serene majesty of this place enhance the union of body, mind, breath, spirit and nature. We’ll practise yoga and meditation twice daily with howler monkeys, mot-mots, hummingbirds, giant cicadas and chachalacas for company.
Tama Soble has been studying, practising and teaching yoga for 40 years. She co-owns and co-directs Esther Myers Yoga Studio and conducts classes, workshops, Teacher Training, and retreats at her home studio in Toronto, Canada, and internationally.
Your payment is separated into two parts. The Studio $700 non refundable payment for twice daily yoga is due now. For room assignments and more information, please contact Tama Soble at email@example.com.
