Feb 17 - 23, 2019 | Yoga, Meditation & Relaxation Retreat with Kristin Cork
Experience the magic of The Sanctuary at Two Rivers ~ The Sanctuary is a private, 40 acre boutique eco-resort off the grid, nestled between two rivers on the southernmost tip of the Nicoya peninsula of Costa Rica. Hiking in 20 minutes from the ocean you will cross rivers, meet the jungle and the experience the layers of life sliding off your back. Bright butterflies, birds, monkeys and more to gaze at... daily mediation and yoga, hiking to sacred waterfalls, swimming in the Pacific, relaxing in garden hammocks. Sound incredible? It is! And wait until we eat!! An inspiration for foodie's ~ each meal better than the last with gourmet, award winning vegan and gluten-free cuisine. PS- There's wine with dinner too :)
what your retreat includes:
- 7 days/6 nights tropical, modern, zen jungle loft accommodations set amongst picturesque tropical gardens with observation decks, hammocks and jungle vistas. Private bathrooms and waterfall showers in each treehouse!!

- Morning Meditation & Alignment inspired Vinyasa Flow each day.
- 4/5 afternoons / early evening we will dive back onto our mats and enjoy yoga with a specialized focus. Experience Yin, Yoga Nidra, Restorative, and last but not least legs up the "railing"! Be.ing on retreat allows us time to experience the layers of our practices that in a typical group class we may not have the time to explore. This week together, we'll move and melt layers of mind, breath and body to connect to our truest essence. Insight and intuition will be brighter, congestion and blocked energies lighter.
