Where in Costa Rica?

Playa Grandé, Guanacaste, near the resort town of Tamarindo will be the retreat location where we will connect, explore and play through yoga, pranayama, meditation and movement. This charming and peaceful little town is known for its tropical beauty, great surf and friendly community. Attracting surfers and yogis, Playa Grande is a nesting ground for Leatherback turtles, a national park and beach paradise with spectacular sunset views.

Where We'll stay

Rip Jack Inn is a family-friendly boutique hotel that is a mere 75 meters away from the white sandy beaches of this ocean paradise. For our retreat, you’ll have a choice of single or double occupancy – based on a first-come-first-served basis. 

During your week, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Hear the morning calls of the howler monkeys and view spectacular sunsets
  • Enjoy downtime to read, nap, explore, journal…relax
  • Visit Tamarindo. This lively town is accessible by walking 3 miles along the beach then a water taxi , by biking or via 30 minute cab ride. There you can enjoy shops, restaurants and night life.
  • Arrange for eco-excursions and bike rentals through the hotel
  • Relish our final moments together with a special closing ceremony

Additional views Of The Region

A Few Words From Lisa

“I have been intimately connected to this region since moving here in 2017 with my family.

As a skilled yoga teacher, seasoned dancer and Certified Zero Balancing practitioner, I share a unique skillset developed from my devotion to the language of the body.

With a blend of yoga, meditation and E A M (Expressive Authentic Movement) I focus on building a safe space to listen for the whispers of your innate inner voice and the murmur of your heart’s desire. In an era marked by cell phones and computers it is easy for us to disconnect from our internal compass and dampen the deep listening we need to connect authentically.

This retreat is designed to gently tap the reset button on your body, mind and spirit to help you reach your authentic self once again. Be prepared to move both on and off your mat.” ~ Lisa Bardarson
