Imagine your best self- vibrant and radiant health, happy and fulfilled in your heart, and on track with your life/soul purpose. Kick off the auspicious year of 2020 by investing in your health and happiness.
Join Drishti Point Podcasts founder, Farah Nazarali for a 7-day Retreat in paradise. This yoga retreat on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica is designed to inspire you in creating and committing to practices and rituals that serve your highest health and happiness and contribute to a deep feeling of serenity and peace.
We will explore intention, ritual, powerful yogic practices, and how to align with the natural laws of karma and dharma to create joy, cultivate contentment, and experience abundance.
Play in Paradise!
Nature and the Divine are abundant. We are born of the Light and our bodies are made up of the natural elements. The easiest way to access our Divine and creative capacities is to surround ourselves with natural beauty, nourish our bodies with wholesome and pure foods, immerse in wisdom teachings, and be among inspiring and supportive friends. This allows us to feel abundant and act, speak, and create from a place of wholeness.
Each day will include:
- Morning yoga and guided meditation
- Optional workshop on yogic and buddhist wisdom (YA credits available)
- Free time to play, explore nature, or rest and reflect
- Gentle, restorative evening yoga class
Every retreat is unique and, as such, the itineraries are ever-changing! We finalize the itineraries about 3-6 weeks before the retreat, but after 10 years of hosting retreats, we do have a general idea of what most schedules look like.
Most retreats include one-to-two daily yoga classes. One class takes place in the morning, either just before or just after breakfast. After the first class and meal, you have free time to explore, relax, or take part in optional add-on activities. Lunch (if included in your retreat) will take place midday, during this free time. There is then, usually, an afternoon class followed by dinner. Occasionally some teachers choose to offer an evening restorative class or group gathering after dinner as well.
In addition, there is usually one dedicated “excursion day” in which we do not have scheduled yoga classes. This is a day for people to take advantage of some of the more involved tour and excursion offerings and is always a lot of fun!
Again, this is a very general look at what your retreat schedule could be. We work closely with the teachers to design unique itineraries that reflect their style and the group that’s traveling with them. Once your specific retreat itinerary is complete, we will send it out via email, usually two or more weeks before the retreat starts. Please keep in mind all retreat itineraries are subject to change.
