This year has found the world troubled by the complications the COVID-19 pandemic has enforced on the people. Social distancing, quarantines, fear of the virus, restrictions on what leisurely activities are available and reduced business hours, etc.
Thankfully, we are moving in the right direction and ways to treat the virus as well as the incoming vaccine have given people a reprieve from the hopelessness and uncertainty that was felt in the beginning of the year.
We are happy to say that borders and travel to Costa Rica are finally open again, and we’re already welcoming anxious and excited travelers with open arms! This has been a tough year, and so what better way to start the new year off with a relaxing yoga vacation into the natural world and bring peace to body and mind?
Yoga is Not Just Stretching
Many people think of Yoga as just a means to an end. You do the poses, bear the discomfort, and you are rewarded by feeling more limber and free than when you walked into class. However, as dedicated yogis’ know that yoga is and always was a spiritual practice. In a way, the idea that yoga is a means to an end is true, but the stretching is just so that the body can be more comfortable entering a meditative state. A yoga retreat in Costa Rica can be life-changing.
Yoga Vacation Costa Rica
At Ylang Ylang, everything we do is so that our guests can truly be out in nature while enjoying the comforts that a beach resort can offer. Truly, if you have been feeling stressed this year, there is no better way to relax your body and mind than through unwinding at our resort and bringing peace and healing to your body through our yoga classes.
While regular yoga classes may remind you of neon colors and bright lights, with us, you’ll be out in nature surrounded by the sounds of wildlife, the waves, and the gentle instructions of our expert yoga instructors Dianne and Stephanie.
The American Heart Association often stresses the effectiveness of being out in nature for lowering stress levels and bringing on a host of mental health benefits with meditation and yoga both making the list.
At Ylang, our classes take place in a wonderful open air yoga studio with phenomenal views of the ocean, beach, and jungle! Classes are open to the public whether they are staying with us at Ylang or elsewhere. If you’ve never done yoga before, don’t worry. Our instructors create offerings for people of all experience levels, so whether you’re shaking on your first downward dog or you can jump into a handstand no problem, there’s a class for you.
