Yoga Classes

Santa Teresa, Costa Rica, or Online

Join in-person yoga classes during your visit to Santa Teresa at the open-air yoga studio in Playa Hermosa. Classes are for all levels. Or take online yoga classes from the comfort and convenience of your home. Sandra teaches the open group classes via Zoom from Costa Rica (you’ll get a bonus tropical backdrop for your class!). Join an online yoga class from wherever in the world you are.



What is the Yoga like?

The principal type of yoga we practice on retreats is Vinyasa Flow, which is generally more active and dynamic to build strength, increase flexibility, and transform energy. Restorative yoga and meditation sessions are integral parts of each retreat. All levels of yoga are welcome. The premise is always – Start where you are.

A focus is on how to practically incorporate the philosophy and practices of the ancient teachings of Yoga into a modern lifestyle via a systematic method.

A fundamental concept of the practice is to reduce and eliminate unhealthy stress so that the body-mind can regenerate, heal, and transform. Learn yogic tools to reprogram unempowering behavior patterns and to create an energetically positive state as the norm.

Sandra, the owner of Vajra Sol, leads most of the retreats. She has been practicing and studying yoga for more than 25 years. See About Us page to learn more about her background.

Who is a typical retreat guest?

Most of our retreat guests are solo travelers, then friends joining together, family members, or couples. They are women and men from across the U.S., Canada and farther aboard and range in age on average from late 20s to 60s. They are usually working professionals who prefer the comforts of a more upscale hotel that maintains a casual, low-key style. The level of yoga experience ranges from beginner to more experienced.

How many people on a retreat?

The group size is kept small (on average 12 – 16 persons maximum depending on the retreat) to ensure an optimal personalized experience and comfort for group travel. Typically we require six people to run a retreat.

Is a Vajra Sol Yoga retreat right for me?

It is important to us that a retreat is a right match for you. Read reviews on TripAdvisor by past guests for first-hand commentary of their experience. Or contact us and we’ll gladly answer any questions you have. Vajra Sol has received the Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor for five consecutive years.

We make it simple and easy. You’ve worked hard and we want to take the research, planning, and the many details off your plate. Once you arrive at the meeting location or retreat property we take care of all the ground logistics during the retreat, hotel bookings, and general organizing.

Sustainable travel + the environment

We place high importance on upholding the environmental and social practices of a responsible traveler. We discerningly partner with hotel properties, tour operators, and other businesses that operate under the premise of sustainable tourism by showing an effort to negate adverse effects on local communities and the environment where and when possible.

What is sustainable tourism?

“Tourism that takes full account of its current and future economic, social and environmental impacts, addressing the needs of visitors, the industry, the environment, and host communities”. (UNWTO – United Nations World Tourism Organization)

What is a responsible traveler?

A traveler who follows a code of ethics when visiting a host destination, as outlined by the UNWTO.

  • Honour your hosts and our common heritage.
  • Protect our planet.
  • Support the local economy.
  • Travel safely.
  • Be an informed traveler.
  • Use digital platforms wisely.
  • Set a good example for other travelers

Cancelation Policy for COVID-19 & Travel Insurance for your Yoga Retreat

Travel insurance is highly recommended for coverage of any unplanned changes that may occur before or during your trip, such as trip cancelation, delayed flights, lost luggage, emergency medical assistance, and more.

We have seen over the years unfortunate travel circumstances happen, such as guests’ traveling to the retreat miss a flight and have to stay the night in a hotel and pay for other unplanned expenses. Or they have had to cancel their participation in the retreat last minute.

We recommend travel insurance with iTravelInsured which is affiliated with IMG (International Medical Group). You may customize what you need for travel and/or international emergency medical insurance. Check with your home health insurance provider to see if and for what you are covered when traveling outside the U.S.

For all retreats, if force ma·jeure (e.g. pandemic, natural disasters, travel restrictions, etc.) causes a retreat to be canceled we will offer a rescheduled date for the retreat. In this case, there are no refunds of payment when it is due to causes beyond our control.

If the rescheduled retreat date does not work for you, full or partial credit (not a refund) towards another one of our retreats at any destination may be possible. This will depend on the specific retreat as policies are reflective of our hotel partners’ policies as well. See the specific retreat page or contact us for the complete information.

Vajra Sol will not be held responsible for any expenses incurred for canceled retreats, by the participant or by Vajra Sol, or due to force ma·jeure.

Retreat travel insurance is strongly recommended for coverage of postponed or canceled retreats in such a scenario.

We want you to feel comfortable with your travel plans and options. We have made our cancelation policy more flexible than previously with the current travel environment with COVID-19.

Contact us with any questions and we will be glad to provide additional information.


Guest Reviews

trip advisor

“My husband and I recently returned from Vajra Sol’s trip to Peru. Sandra led such an amazing retreat and it was obvious from the start. Everything was taken care of from the moment we touched down in Cusco until our return back to the airport. We are already looking forward to joining her on a future retreat!”

Vera, New York

“This was my 5th time with Vajra Sol and I loved every moment of it. Sandra is over accommodating to your needs. The scene and location of your villa and yoga experience is out of this world. Trust me, this is the best retreat out there for YOGA, SUPING and Surfing.”

Steve P, Conneticut

“Go on one of Vajra Sol’s retreats; you won’t regret it. You may even
conquer some fears and surprise yourself, like I did. You will make new friends and have memories to last a lifetime! This was a life changing experience for me!”
