January 25 - February 1, 2025
Blue Osa Yoga Retreat and Spa on the Osa Peninsula of Costa Rica

Nourished by Nature:

Immerse in the magic of Costa Rica, and return home feeling alive and aligned in body, mind and soul.

Savor a week of slowing down to come alive.

 

This 7-night all-inclusive nature-based retreat offers the perfect blend of relaxation and exploration as you recharge in one of the most biodiverse places in the world.

Our private beachfront yoga retreat center will be home for the full week, with all of your needs taken care of, from meals to accommodations, guided self-care sessions and more. During this retreat you'll have time and space to reconnect with the elements of life that make you feel nourished & alive, and receive support in bringing the magic home.

Nourished by Nature

Nourish body, mind and spirit with the healing power of nature.

Costa Rica, known as the Land of Pura Vida, is a place where you have permission to just BE, slowing down in a way that allows you to reconnect with the harmony & flow of our natural world as you reconnect with the harmony & flow within yourself: 

Rise with the sounds of the jungle, move with the energy of the sun and the sea, savor the sweetness of local foods, rest with the gentle breeze.  

 

This retreat experience is meant to give you the time and space to disconnect from the hustle and receive nourishment from the magic and wisdom of our natural world. There are few places within Costa Rica as untouched as the Osa Peninsula, and Lindsay has mindfully curated this retreat experience to provide a nourishing balance of both structured sessions and free time.

  • Begin each day with a rejuvenating yoga session.

  • Spend an afternoon relaxing on our private beach.

  • Enjoy a massage at the lovely onsite Blue Osa Spa.

  • Restore body + mind with afternoon Yoga Nidra.
  • Attend a Nourished by Nature Self-Reflection Session and experience the aliveness and power of connecting more deeply with your True Nature.

  • Savor delicious farm-to-table meals, all thoughtfully prepared to nourish your body & mind.

*And return home carrying the magic within you.*

what past attendees are saying

The overall experience was far more meaningful and enjoyable than I could have expected. I keep going back to the word "magical" to describe the week."

This was my 3rd Lindsay/ Costa Rica experience, and it exceeded my hopes and expectations. It was a perfect mix of attention, intention, location, attendees and most of all exceptional leadership from Lindsay. If my expectation was pure magic, it was met and then some!"

I went in cold not having done a yoga retreat before and I truly enjoyed the experience. I also liked that we had plenty of time to be solo and in the moment- not always in a group setting."

 

Stepping out of the busy for a solid week in such a different environment was really life changing to be able to look at my life from a different perspective."

The Destination

The Osa Peninsula, located in the southwestern corner of Costa Rica, has been named "the most biologically intense place on Earth," by National Geographic, and for good reason! 

 

As one of the last places in Costa Rica to be settled, this iconic peninsula is almost entirely covered with lush primary rainforests, and is home to an incredible array of wildlife unique to the area.

The Osa is known to provide a tranquil and nature-rich experience for visitors. And our home for the week, Blue Osa Yoga Retreat & Spa, is located on the shores of the Gulfo Dulce, 25 minutes outside of the town of Puerto Jimenez.

 

Tucked in jungle, yet located beachfront, Blue Osa offers sunrise views and access to 3-miles of sandy beach for peaceful walks and swims. Birds, butterflies and even monkeys are known to grace the campus, inviting us into the fold of the natural world. 

Home to a yoga training center, Blue Osa offers well appointed and comfortable accommodations in a beautiful eco-conscious setting. During your stay, you will be invited to disconnect from the busy, and reconnect with a natural rhythm that feeds your true nature. 

 

Amenities include:

An open-air yoga platform with ocean views | Direct beach access | An onsite pool and spa | Plenty of spaces to relax alone or in community | Organic and primarily plant based farm-to-table meals |  Access to local adventures such as waterfall repelling, horseback riding, zip-lining, surfing and more!
