Join Mel Beck for a week of Yoga, Meditation, Adventure, Relaxation, and Exploration on the beaches of Santa Teresa, Costa Rica. The ocean air is the perfect temperature for relaxing on the balcony, swimming in the sea, and moving through your flow. This is your time and place for self-care and nourishment. When was the last time you fell asleep to the ebb and flow of the sea, or you woke up to a nourishing asana to open your physical body while connecting with your breath, thoughts, and emotions? The time is now. What are your waiting for?
A taste of the retreat
Let go of the daily grind. Here you will rest peacefully in your seaside villa, listening to the wonders of the ocean. Enjoy incredibly fresh meals prepared by an on-site chef. Ignite your day with an uplifting, moderate to powerful 1.5 to 2-hour Vinyasa in the morning and surrender in the evening with a 1-hour restorative practice. Several optional excursions are also available including snorkeling, surf lessons, hiking, biking, and zip-lining. Move slow and savor each moment as you reconnect with your true self.

The retreat will be held at an intimate beachfront hotel and yoga center located in Santa Teresa, a breathtaking white sand beach on the Pacific Ocean of Costa
Rica’s Nicoya Peninsula. Situated on four acres of unspoiled tropical beach, you will find beautiful swimming areas and also outcroppings of rock where natural tide pools
form. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are prepared daily and include healthy vegetarian options along with fish and/or chicken. The food is organic when available and prepared with nourishing ingredients.
Melany has been practicing yoga for the past 15 years in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado and abroad. She earned her 200 RYT through the Bindu Yoga School in Bali, Indonesia. Her goal is to create a space where yoga is accessible to all ages and abilities. She offers a wide variety of postures in each practice. Mel focuses on yoga geared toward athletes and includes injury prevention techniques in many of her classes. The physical asana practice is very important; however, the pranayama breath work and meditation are key points in every class. Melany’s classes embody the true meaning of yoga by enveloping a mind – body connection.

We cannot emphasize more the importance of travel insurance. As we all know, especially as travelers, “life happens.” Whether it’s family, work, mother nature, or a change of heart, it is important to be prepared in case you need to unexpectedly change your travel plans. Often for less than $100, you can purchase a travel insurance policy and be protected in the event that you need to make a change or need to be covered financially prior to or during your trip.
