There is a place in Costa Rica where a unique award winning Yoga retreat awaits to provide travelers with breathtaking scenery, serenity and a holistic method to alleviate body and soul.
Vacations are supposed to liberate us from stress, but sometimes they become anxiety-filled affairs. The problem with modern vacations is that they often mirror the modern lives we are trying to get away from, meaning that many resorts are essentially filled with many of the same stressors that lurk back home. Combating stress takes a lot more than just a change in scenery; it involves a wellness approach.
Located in a mountain hideaway near Puriscal, past the campus of the University for Peace, the Amatierra Retreat and Wellness Center offers travelers a life-enhancing experience consisting of yoga, tranquility, organic nutrition, herbal medicine, bodywork, and mind/body awareness. A vacation taken at Amatierra is unlike any other vacation in the sense that travelers are given a tangible opportunity to free themselves from stress and to detoxify from the noxious agents of modern life that prevent us from being at peace with ourselves.
Amatierra is a yoga retreat that caters specially to travelers who are interested in taking a vacation in which healing and rejuvenation are proactive. This is one of the most peaceful resorts in Costa Rica, a perfect combination of mountain forest serenity and holistic attention that soothes the soul with yoga, organic meals lovingly prepared with sustainably-grown produce from local farms, spa treatments, and a number of deeply relaxing and beneficial therapies including:
- Sound Therapy
- Mind-Body Sessions
- Herbal Medicine and Nutrition
- Beauty Treatments
Amatierra’s location is essential to the relaxing and detoxifying experience. The retreat is tucked away in a eight-acre mountain forest patch where stress is non-existent. Amatierra is surrounded by lush vegetation and a great variety of birds and butterflies. A carefully-tended organic garden allows visitors to learn about some of the wonderful gifts from Mother Earth that can help us live healthier lives. Guests stay in individual casitas that guarantee solitude and privacy, perfect for couples who would like to enjoy an intimate honeymoon, or who would like to strengthen their relationship bonds by becoming healthier together.
Yoga is at the heart of Amatierra’s rejuvenating experience. The open-air studio provides not only an amazing and peaceful view, but also a blend of sound and scents that enhance the healing properties of yoga’s meditation and bodywork. Amatierra is not just for the casual travelers; extended retreats, seminars and workshops are available for those who are serious about holistic practices.
Amatierra offers a host of other amenities, from a relaxing swimming pool to the most scenic dining points to hiking adventures, and even an Equine Experience in which guests bond with gentle horses to remind them how a great portion of the holistic approach to life involves interacting with Nature.
Travelers can choose from a variety of packages and lodging options, but for a meaningful period of relaxation and detoxification the staff at Amatierra recommends the 5 to 7 days packages.
