Join us for a week of bliss, relaxation and yoga! We’re returning for the third time the beautiful Iguana Lodge & Spa, located on the Osa Peninsula. Described by National Geographic as "one of the most biologically intense places on earth", the peninsula offers the best of both worlds - lush tropical rainforest and beautiful wide beaches.
Nestled in the jungle on a private 6-mile beach, the award-winning Iguana Lodge offers an chic, modern twist on jungle living. The lodge boasts a lap pool, jacuzzi, spa, two gourmet restaurants, and a bar and two beautiful yoga decks.
The retreat includes two daily, outdoor yoga practices, morning practice on the ocean facing yoga deck and evening practice on the lofted treehouse-style deck nestled in the jungle . Morning practice will be a powerful, flowing ashtanga-based style, accompanied by the ocean waves. Evening practice will be workshop style, with individual attention on handstands, back-bending, arm balancing and more, accompanied by the sounds of the Costa Rican Rainforest. All levels are welcome and individual goals and needs will be addressed. We aim to give you both the rigor of our practices and teaching as well as the freedom to make this week exactly what you want and need from a vacation!
All meals are included at the Iguana Lodge's incredible two restaurants, enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner made with the freshest ingredients that Costa Rica has to offer. Choose between two different lodging options - stay in a Chic Club Room, ocean or jungle view, king, queen or two twin beds, with lofted ceilings, frosted glass french doors and an individual outdoor balcony. For more of a jungle experience stay in a private Casita, with both jungle and ocean views, this secluted two story treehouse is an airy, large space with a queen and daybed, a luxurious private deck with hammocks and chairs, a large bathing area (with the option of a private outdoor jungle shower) and a relaxing reading nook with a private library.
Enjoy complimentary boogie boards and stand up paddle boards in the warm Pacific Ocean, take out a complementary kayak to explore the nearby reef, or head up the Platanares River and explore a gorgeous mangrove estuary.
There are some great surf spots for all levels on the Osa, including the Matapalo area and we have arranged to have a car and guide take our clients to these surf spots daily, as requested. Guided jungle hikes, horseback riding, zip lining, tree climbing and waterfall rappelling, bird and monkey watching with the Iguana Lodge in house naturalist, are just some of the many adventures the area has to offer.
