Shiva & Friends in Costa Rica to Ring in the New Year! Bring on the New Year with a transformational yogadventure retreat to Nosara, Costa Rica where the jungle meets the ocean. Nosara is a world-class surf spot where the power of the warm, clear healing ocean is the primordial teacher. Enjoy the magic of each day with optional activities ranging from surfing, transformational yoga, sunset horseback riding, to zipping down the longest, most exhilarating canopy in the world! Whether you are an experienced surfer, have always wanted to surf, or just want to go deeper into fluid power vinyasa with Shiva, we will enter the Full Moon New Year in an empowering and rejuvenating rhythm of living yoga, healing relaxation, and liberating play.
Blue Spirit Retreat: Blue Spirit Retreat in Costa Rica provides an exceptional setting to all who are dedicated to spiritual transformation, personal development, and environmental sustainability.
Perched on a peninsula overlooking the Pacific Ocean and a three-mile long white sand beach that is protected as a turtle refuge - Blue Spirit Retreat offers an extraordinarily beautiful and natural setting on one of Costa Rica's finest beaches, allowing for your retreats, workshops, and trainings to be a deeply nurturing and unforgettable experience.
Located in Nosara on the northwest coast of Costa Rica, Blue Spirit Retreat is remote yet accessible; we are only a two-hour-drive from the Liberia International Airport, which has frequent daily flights from all over the United States and Canada. Once you arrive, you will find yourself worlds away in a region renowned for its spectacular scenery, excellent restaurants, local cultural events, and an international community that gives the region a vibrantly creative and peaceful atmosphere - a combination you won't find anywhere else in Costa Rica or perhaps the entire Western hemisphere.
