Since the month of September, we have put in place yoga group lessons for our entire team. Every week, we gather around Cécile, teacher at Mana yoga Center, for one hour of relaxation despite a few painful minutes. Although the yoga studio is a very welcoming venue, what is better than a session by the seaside to relax to the soothing sound of waves. Beaches of the Pacific or Indian oceans are dream destinations to do beach yoga. Ready to follow us ?
Revitalise yourself on the heavenly beaches of the Pacific
Let us start our "yoga world tour" with a nice walk on the sumptuous beaches of the Pacific.
Let us greet the sun on Costa Rica's beaches
First of all, let us fly to a destination which is dear to our creators : Costa Rica. Early this year, Stéphanie and James went to revitalise themselves in the jungle and on the beaches of this fabulous country where nature is lush. The country of happiness and "pura vida" is an ideal place for surfing, with its famous spots, but also for its yoga activity.
During their trip, Stéphanie and James fell instantly in love with the numerous Pacific beaches. Exceptional stretches of sand which will definitely help you escape you mind during your yoga sessions. Let us discover some of these Pacific gems.
Make the most of this yoga retreat by discovering the stunning Isla del Caño, a dazzling biological reserve. Its golden sand beaches are the ideal spots for some asana soothed by the sounds of the jungle and waves. Between relaxation sessions, do not hesitate to discover underwater fauna and flora by attending diving sessions offered by numerous diving centres.
Further in the south, you can head off to the "whale's tail". Do not worry, it is not the animal itself ! It is in fact a very well-known place in Costa Rica : the Punta Uvita. At low tide, Playa Uvita reveals a small whale tail-shaped island. A beautiful setting which is definitely ideal for a relaxation session.
Before you go there, do not forget to check the tide times to be sure you see this such unusual shape.
These few beaches are just a taste of the beauties that Costa Rica has to offer.
