I first traveled to Costa Rica In 2011, which was my first solo International trip. It was during this adventure that the seed was planted in my heart to lead Yoga Retreats. It was also the first time I ever stood up on a surfboard, and where I fell in love with the ocean.
I've been wanting to lead a retreat to Costa Rica for many years now, but it wasn't until I experienced the magic of the Osa Peninsula in August of 2023 that I realized where I'm meant to take a group.
This is the most beautiful place I've ever visited!!!
This boutique Retreat will be held at a premier luxury villa on Backwash Bay in Matapalo, which is located on the Southern tip of Costa Rica's Osa Peninsula. The Osa Peninsula is known as one of the most biologically diverse places on Earth, an incredibly remote, secluded nature wonderland, playing home to many of the country's rare and endangered animals and bird species.
The Retreat Villa offers high-end luxurious accommodations nestled into a rugged extraordinary jungle setting. Take in breathtaking views of Costa Rica's natural wildlife from the privacy of this eight-acre estate property. The property rises gradually from Backwash Beach and stretches across a section of lush tropical gardens backing up to a mountainside draped in abundant rainforest. The Villa is situated at the base of the mountains offering incredible views of the ocean from above, but is less than 100 yards from the incredible white sandy beaches of the Matapalo region.
The moment you walk through the lush jungle and reach the white sandy beach of Backwash, it will completely take your breath away and leave you absolutely speechless.

"The Pure or Simple Life"
My hope for this retreat is to create a sweet space to relax, unwind, and disconnect from the hustle and bustle of life.
We will tune into the rise of the sun with daily Himalayan meditation followed by a Himalayan Kundalini Yoga journey.
Breakfast, a light afternoon snack & dinner will be prepared fresh daily onsite.
Spanning roughly 10,000 square feet, this luxury Retreat Villa consists of a large communal area known as the Casa Grande where the master bedroom is located as well as the kitchen, dining area, bar, living room, guest bathroom, pool and yoga deck. There are three detached private bungalows each equipped with two queen beds, ceiling fans, full bathroom, outdoor shower and cozy patio space. The focal point of the Casa Grande is a large infinity pool that disappears into the tropical scenery and blue water of Backwash Bay. The pool includes a shallow area perfect for sunbathing, as well as a deep end that measure 15 feet deep.
I'm capping the retreat to offer an intimate, quiet experience, so space will sell out fast.

SEE WHAT PAST RETREAT GUESTS HAVE TO SAY
I attended my first ever yoga retreat in Bali, Indonesia in August of 2019. It was a marvelous retreat with life changing outcomes.
With the wisdom and guidance of Angie Hall, my meditation practice makes more sense and has more meaning to me than it ever has. The shift started with learning techniques to help increase and improve my self love.The changes that I witnessed and felt in just a few days were substantial. Then add the backdrop of Bali, which was one of my “to do” list destinations, which elevated the experience to beyond wonderful.
Thank you so much for a beautiful experience.
I have to say the best part of the entire journey was the meditation and yoga practices in the mornings. Through this I learned more about myself and my own spiritual path, how to meditate in a way that brings me peace and not frustration, and I gained a deeper understanding about Sattva yoga. Angie makes what can be a confusing and obscure practice understandable and sustainable in daily life. This was not a "woo-woo sit around and navel gaze" experience, that would never work for me. This was real and deep and powerful. I feel deeply connected to everyone from the trip and they will be in my hearts forever. I am now meditating regularly in addition to my yoga practice. If I allow myself to become still, I can still feel the Bali breeze on my skin, hear the birds, smell the sweet air and feel the love of my new friends.
Angie’s retreats are life-changing, but they are also very intense. Do not sign up expecting a low-key vacation of pampering self-care. Though the locations are idyllic, and there are many memorable moments of humor, fun, and relaxation, that’s definitely not end game. You will work. You will move way beyond your comfort zone. And you will rediscover who you are in the process. It’s not easy. But it’s worth it. And if you show up and do the work, you will leave far better than you came, feeling lighter, more aware, and more rooted in your truth than you ever thought possible.
