Experience pura vida (the good life) in Costa Rica while strengthening body and soul with two open-air yoga classes just meters from Playa Carmen, a renowned surfer’s paradise in Mal Pais.

Mal Pais is a small beachfront village with a surf-based culture at the Southernmost tip of the Nicoya Peninsula, just 4 km north of Cabo Blanco National Park. Surrounded by lush vegetation and myriad plant and animal life, it’s a bird (and lizard) lover’s paradise.

Our morning and evening practices will be followed by gourmet organic meals created by Joseph the chef of Beija Flor Resort (, and days will be free to explore nearby adventures such as surf lessons (several beginner-intermediate beach breaks), canopy tours, zip lines through monkey-inhabited forest, horseback riding, strolling the long, sandy beach collecting unusual shells, soaking in the tide pools, or just relaxing in a hammock in the shade of a palm tree.

Daily rides will be available to the nearby black-sand beach town of Montezuma for shopping, local art, sampling ice cream and local restaurants, swimming in calm sea, visiting the butterfly garden, and playing in breathtaking waterfalls.

Four instructors come together to bring you a special yoga experience, with adjustments and assists during classes, and yogic tools to take away and use throughout your lifetime. We will explore not only asana and meditation, but also chanting and beginning pranayama.

Amber Dawn Clark organized this retreat as a benefit for a local elementary school and invited a few of her favorite yoga instructors that complement each other and bring a dynamic depth to this gathering. She is a light hearted fun loving teacher who enjoys bringing light and love to everyones practice.

R.R. Shakti (Rachel Redding) is the Yoga World Reach Director and a Yoga Therapist who has been teaching “the blissipline” of Inner Power Yoga since 2000. She has an enormous amount to offer and will also be teaching a workshop or two.

Susan Sebanc is a Boulder-based Baptiste-trained power yoga instructor and poi-dancer with a passion for surf, sunsets, sunrises, and Earth in general.

Richii Jai is teaching yoga asana as a healing medium and point of entry for us all to realign with our higher selves. His playful energy and gentle strength bring warmth to every class.

We are excited to share this amazing opportunity with you and together, we will combine energies to facilitate a beautiful yogic experience.

Please bring: yoga clothes and a couple swimsuits (you might live in them), flip-flops and comfortable shoes, sunscreen, and mosquito repellent!
