I have just returned from a month long adventure in gorgeous Costa Rica! Wow, it is such a lively and lovely country, filled with a rich, diverse and wild vitality. I loved it, and the people were great - the 'ticos' or natives as well as the ex-pats from many places around the globe. Although not a 'quiet' place - there are always monkeys, and other creatures reminding you of their presence - it invites you to a simplicity and ease that is irresistable. Pura Vida means good life - and indeed it is.
My good friend, Lela, and I hosted a retreat at the exquisite Samasati Eco-Resort on the Caribbean coast....and a treat it was. They took great care of all of us - I can give them the highest recommendation. I got a chance to see a few areas of Costa Rica - there is sooo much to see there. It really is like one big natural wonder - so many parks and adventures to go on. It left me wanting more...my favorite parts of the country were the mountainous, volcanic inland and Lake Arenal area, off the beaten path of the hot coastal beaches. I look forward to going back to spend more time there soon.
Next up in Costa Rica - 200 and 500 Hour Yoga and Meditation Teacher Trainings. Check back here and at oneyogalove.com for the upcoming schedule. Pura Vida!
