Here are the details of the Prasada Wholebeing Journey to Costa Rica, May 19-26, 2018. If you missed my invitation you can read it here.
This 7-day trip is a journey to an extraordinary place, fresh, farm-to-table, organic meals, opportunities for rest, relaxation and connection with yourself, others in one of the world’s most beautiful natural environments. You can enjoy the beach, the pool and some amazing spa options and there are many adventures, from horseback riding to kayaking and a jungle zip line that you can explore. There will be daily yoga and mindfulness classes and time to learn about some other ways in which you can bring the ease of Costa Rica’s Pura Vida back to your own life.
Blue Osa is an intimate, beachfront eco-resort off the beaten path. It built from the ground up as a sustainable micro-grid that runs mostly on solar power, with the intention to leave the smallest footprint possible and live in harmony with the environment. Their mission to provide us, their guests, with an unforgettable experience that nourishes body, mind and spirit.
So what does this mean for you? A week at an extraordinary place, healthy organic, fresh food, opportunities for time to rest, relax and connect with yourself and others. A place to explore and learn more about yoga, mindfulness, and positive psychology so you can bring the ease of Pura Vida in Costa Rica back to your own life.
Our group of 14 will have 4 rooms for double occupancy (2 double beds/room) and 2 rooms for three people (3 double beds/room). The rooms are spacious and have private baths, gorgeous furnishings, lots of drawers, and refreshing ocean breezes. Our hope is that you’ll be coming with your best friend, mother, partner or sisters to have the time that is hard to find at home to really relax and connect with each other. If you are traveling solo, let us know and we can connect you with others who are considering the trip to help you find roommates.
There are many beautiful, quiet spots to rest near the pool, the ocean edge and near the cocina, the open kitchen and dining area. There is a small lounge near the staff offices with complimentary wireless internet access. If you want some deeper relaxation and healing there are some spa experience offerings including signature facials and body scrubs and Thai and Deep Tissue Massage in addition to a Chinese Medicine acupuncturist.
The yoga studio on the second floor has open sides with views over the beautiful gardens and the beach and ocean. Meg Townsend and Alice Dommert will offer daily yoga classes, mindfulness meditation, and conscious breathwork sessions. We’ll also offer several positive psychology mini-workshop so you can explore new tools to bring home with you. There truly is nothing like lying in savasana after a yoga practice soothed by the sounds of the nearby waves. It’s a special practice space.
Dining at Blue Osa seems to match the rhythms of the day, the place, and their belief that “nutritious food is not only the foundation for a productive life but is also an essential for a happy one.” The food is delicious, healthy and organic, served with the freshest ingredients possible. Meals include a light breakfast at 6am, brunch at 10am, a snack at 2pm and dinner at 6:30pm.
Their organic garden provides fresh vegetables and herbs along with mango, guanabana, starfruit, citrus, bananas, coconut, avocado, papaya and pineapple. Additionally, they grow their own spinach, yucca, and other root vegetables. Every day, farmers bring freshly laid eggs to the cocina and the red snapper and mahi-mahi are freshly-caught by neighboring fishermen.
It’s an international gourmet menu (with tasty desserts) prepared under the guidance of Chef Marie. The menu is primarily vegetarian menu but with chicken and fish options and slight adjustments can be made to accommodate requests that are submitted prior to our arrival. See a sample 7-day menu here.
Typically the lovely meal hosts at Blue Osa prepare a special drink each night available before dinner and bar drinks are available as additional incidentals.
