The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind.

Peru 2019: Information Coming Soon

Join our third experience to this magical land... Pachamama just keeps calling us back into her Peruvian embrace.

“It seems that the more places I see and experience, the bigger I realize the world to be. The more I become aware of, the more I realize how relatively little I know of it, how many places I still have to go, the more there is to learn.

Maybe that’s enlightenment enough; to know that there is no final resting place of the mind; no smug clarity. Perhaps wisdom…is realizing how small I am, and unwise, and how far I have yet to go.

COSTA RICA: Yoga, Service, Adventure


Puerto Viejo de Talamanca is a beautiful town located on the Caribbean side of Costa Rica, just over 250 miles south of San Jose. On our journey we will pass through the misty heights of Braulio Carriollo National Park, the lush lowlands of Guapiles, and the Caribbean port town of Limon. It is a magical place that is newly on the radar of a global yoga and meditation community. It's a super laid back energy and it's filled with color, local businesses, warm waters, and beach beauty. 


Enjoy the tranquility of Samasati Nature Retreat. This stunning retreat rests on a 250-acre biological reserve overlooking the Caribbean, sitting amidst the Costa Rican rainforest.  Your private bungalow offers a stunning view of the Caribbean Sea - you'll sleep and wake to the sound of birds, waves and howler monkeys. Look forward to organic food at every meal and adventures in zip-lining, horseback riding, swimming, hiking, visiting an animal rescue center, an optional river rafting and a day of service.


Our service work is focused in Carbon, a small village five miles inland from Puerto Viejo. There are about 750 inhabitants spread throughout an area of approximately two square miles and it's a high-need area with children and their families that we have come to know and love. You'll spend an afternoon at our International Center for Girls. They love sharing what they are learning with us and we encourage you bring your interests and talents to share.


All levels of yogis will feel welcomed and supported in our classes that we'll offer daily in the morning and later afternoon in Samasati's tranquil space. In the sacred jungle. Surrounded by sound and color and smells that will infuse your cells with bliss.
