Days and nights will be filled with relaxation and adventure, with Yoga and other activities overlooking the pacific ocean from the beautiful prana-filled rainforest eco retreat centre, La Cusinga, in Uvita Costa Rica. Uvita is an area known for its lush rainforest, sandy beaches, pacific sunset views, natural pools, and amazing wildlife. There’s nothing like taking a break from winter and the hectic pace of life to find yourself again in a warm and nourishing paradise.

This is the 3rd annual retreat with True Nature Education and Tiina Kivinen, and this year we are blessed to be joined by guest teacher Tara Porter, an inspiring yogini and musician from Ottawa/ Hamilton. There is also the possible addition of Luna Ray and Joshua Canter, who offer mindfulness meditation and Nada and Bhakti Yoga, the Yoga of sound and devotion. You will be guided through yoga experiences to inspire joy, deeply nourish the body and soul, and awaken the vital energy of Prana (life force).

Our days will be filled with yoga (prana flow, hatha, restorative, yin), meditation, creative play, kirtan, and ecstatic yoga dance (all sessions optional), exploration and adventure. We will enjoy lots of spacious time for reveling in the wonders of Playa Uvita; barefoot sandy toes, playing in the waves, gazing at sunsets, and just being.

We will also offer time to experience nature excursions that the area has to offer, such as zip lining, waterfall tours, surf lessons, whale watching, snorkeling, horse back riding and more… truly infinite possibilities, and everything is optional. See Location section for details.

Once again we will open our hearts with the practice of Karma Yoga, selfless service, giving back to the Costa Rican community with a service project. Many past retreat participants have reported the service project as one of the most meaningful, memorable, and heart opening aspects of this retreat. We fill our own wells, so that we can open up and give back with love.

Tucked away in a private reserve of over 600 acres, this rainforest lodge provides guests with sweeping ocean views, sandy beaches, natural pools, and the chance to experience the burgeoning forests and astonishing wildlife of the country’s most famous ecosystem – Osa. The hotel offers ten rustic cabins designed with sustainably-harvested wood and local materials to maximize comfort while minimizing impact on the environment. The open-air restaurant creates an ideal setting to enjoy delicious tropical dishes made with fresh produce grown right on the ecolodge’s farm.

In addition to the hundreds of acres of privately-owned primary and secondary forest, the ecolodge borders the Ballena Marine National Park, one of only two nationally-protected marine zones in the whole country. The lodge’s genuine commitment to sustainable practices along with first-hand experience in local and national conservation efforts enhances the exploration of the natural surroundings while the beautiful location offers the tranquility of fresh ocean breezes and breathtaking sunsets that make for the perfect tropical escape. Among the best ecolodges according to TripAdvisor.

The site has an extraordinary view of Ballena (Whale) Bay and Uvita Point, surrounded by the Quebrada Grande Stream and forest of La Cusinga Lodge. Its isolation and freedom from modern artificial audio/visual distractions makes for an ideal, relaxing paradise. La Cusinga is also next to the Parque Nacional Marino Ballena, the first whale environment preservation national park of Costa Rica.

Optional area activities include:
