#7: You’ll Make New Friends
Yoga retreats attract like-minded people: people seeking peace and looking to spread love just like you are. You’ll share sacred space and get to know your fellow retreaters like you wouldn’t be able to just by taking a few yoga classes together.
You’ll meditate and practice as a community, supporting each other through the growth and learning that happens during a week at the Goddess Garden. You’ll not only share classes, but also meals, living space, refreshing time at the beach, good vibes, and maybe even adventure during a fun eco-tour.
A yoga retreat to Costa Rica will attract travelers from all over, so you’ll meet new and exciting people with whom you have common values and interests. Lasting connections are forged when you share an awe-inspiring experience in the tropics.
#6: You’ll Learn New Things
The journey through yoga and meditation is a constant learning process. There is potential to learn something about yourself and the world around you each time you get onto your mat or cushion. A yoga retreat to Costa Rica will just accelerate that learning.
The ideas and minds of your teachers and fellow retreat-goers will show you new things you wouldn’t otherwise be exposed to. This is an opportunity to dig deep and open yourself to fresh concepts and to share insights with your group. Unlike your regular yoga class back home, a retreat provides a platform for collaboration and understanding that goes above and beyond what you would expect.
#5: You’ll Expand Your Comfort Zone and Grow
Adventure, new experiences and travel are an amazing trifecta in helping you grow as a person. It’s very empowering to know that you have the opportunity and the ability to leave your country and do something unfamiliar and exciting for yourself.
A yoga retreat to Costa Rica will open your mind and heart to new perspectives and new horizons. You’ll find bravery and fierceness in yourself that you didn’t know existed!
“Gather experiences, not things,” is a common adage these days, and it’s said so often because it’s true. At the end of your life, it won’t matter how much money you have or what material possessions you own. You’ll be rich in stories and in life experiences; these are the things that have true value.
#4: You’ll Experience Physical And Mental Rejuvenation
If we’re being honest, we’ve all experienced burnout in our daily lives. We all have stresses, schedules, to-do lists, appointments and countless other things that occupy our time and energy. A yoga retreat to Costa Rica is the perfect solution to the exhaustion that our day-to-day rigors can cause.
The luxurious accommodations and healthy diet at The Goddess Garden make pampering yourself easy. Leave the cooking and cleaning to our attentive staff, because you deserve a break!
Daily yoga and meditation classes, constant access to the beach, time relaxing at the pool and getting spa treatments are all amazing ways to unwind physically and mentally. You’ll be able to go back home after your retreat refreshed, revitalized, and ready to take on life with renewed energy and zeal!
#3: You’ll Deepen Your Relationship With Your Practice
When you make the effort to dedicate several days to just your practice, you produce actual change in your daily habits. A retreat can be a real treat to yourself and just the thing you need to make yoga and mediation an integral part of who you are.
Putting yourself in a constant headspace that revolves around peace, health and love will make your practice so much more in-depth and meaningful. You are sure to find new ways to use yoga and meditation to nourish your life and your soul.
#2: You’ll Get In Touch With Nature and Your True Self
Most of us don’t spend nearly enough time out in nature. It’s no secret that time spent outside and away from the hustle and bustle of our modern world is good for the soul. After all, we started out living in harmony with the land and our fellow Earthly inhabitants. When we get back to that, we get back in touch with our true nature, our true selves. There is amazing peace and confidence in these kinds of experiences.
Costa Rica is famous for its natural beauty, and we pride ourselves on protecting it. There is nothing like a week in the rainforest to cultivate gratitude for the wonderful planet we live on. You’ll be reminded why we’re here: to coexist, thrive, and love our planet, ourselves and each other.
#1: You’ll Start Seeing the Divine in Yourself and Everything Around You
One of the most amazing things that a regular yoga and meditation practice can do for you is cultivate your ability to see the divine beauty within you and your surroundings. As you spend time bonding with nature, your retreat group, and yourself, you’ll begin to see how everything is beautifully and unmistakably connected.
This knowledge is empowering. This knowledge is life-changing. This knowledge is likely the most valuable thing you’ll take away from your yoga retreat to Costa Rica.
