YOGA RETREAT with Nicole Bratt

Leave your stress far behind and immerse yourself in the exquisite natural beauty of Central America! Nurture, pamper, and rejuvenate your senses at Ama Tierra: a rural, holistic eco-resort where you can reconnect to your most vibrant and relaxed self. This retreat is for those who are craving spaciousness, ease, and clarity for head, heart, and spirit. Surrounded by lush nature, enjoy twice daily yoga, guided meditation, nourishing meals, great company, soothing massage, and the gift of time to truly dive deep into a slower pace.

Accomodations

Eight days, seven nights in paradise, surrounded by the vivid, natural beauty of the Costa Rican mountains. Ama Tierra is a cozy and welcoming yoga retreat and wellness center nestled on eight verdant acres, situated 1 hour west of the capital city of San Jose, and 1 hour north of the Central Pacific beaches. Translated to mean "beloved earth", this special eco-resort features an infinity pool, dining/activity room, balcony with breathtaking views, organic greenhouse, and ten private casitas (guest rooms). Surrounded by tropical flora and fauna, you'll enjoy the relaxing atmosphere and get in touch with the sweet, slow rhythm of nature. 

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be provided daily, catered by our lovely hosts at Ama Tierra. Meals will be organic and locally sourced, whenever possible. Vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free diets can all be accommodated.

There are ten total guest rooms. Each casita includes two queen beds, sitting patio, private bathroom with tub and shower, screened windows, DVD player, mini fridge, and ceiling fan.

Yoga

Nicole Bratt, RYT-500, will lead twice daily yoga, movement, and meditation practices from the magnificent open-air studio pavilion with its inspiring views of the mountains. Your morning practice will be alignment-based, Hatha-influenced yoga and movement; your evening practice will be gentle and slow, and will include yin and Restorative postures. Each practice will offer modifications and options suitable for beginners and those working with injuries or physical limitations, and conclude with a seated meditation and savasana.

Massage

All guests receive a one-hour therapeutic massage from the welcoming staff at Ama Tierra as part of their retreat package. 

Transportation

Private group ground transportation to and from the nearest airport, Juan Santamaría International Airport (code: SJO), is included in your stay.
