Be barefoot all day, swing in a hammock, learn to surf or stand up paddle, stretch and breathe deeply in yoga, sleep restfully. The laid-back coastal town of Santa Teresa is rated one of the top 10 beach destinations in Central America on TripAdvisor. It is known for its beautiful scenery and great year-round surf.

FAQ

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 20 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 (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.

Sustainable travel + the environment

Travel Insurance for your Yoga Retreat + COVID-19

* Contact Us for the policy for COVID-19 related cancelations *
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.

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

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!”
