Balanced in Bliss Yoga and Healing Retreat Costa Rica

An Equinox Yoga and Healing Retreat
With Erin Berry and Sheila Sheeran
March 21-28 2020
AHKi – A Sanctuary for the Soul in Nosara, Costa Rica
Release yourself from the “Human Doing” part of life and journey to a magical place in the jungle canopy, overlooking the ocean, to reconnect with YOU…and remember who you are at your deepest truth. Return to a place of balance within you as you immerse yourself in the many facets of retreat bliss for eight days and seven nights among the expansive sky, the talking trees and the exquisite sounds of nature as only Costa Rica can provide. On this private yoga retreat for men and women (singles and couples), our group will have private use of the entire space. As Costa Rica envelopes you and your senses in her mystery, you’ll be drawn to allow old patterns to slip away…and the true you to emerge. And BE. You’ll experience yoga in a blissful way as you become one with nature in a serene open-air yoga shala with natural teak floors and awe-inspiring ocean, valley, and mountain views. Yoga mats and props are provided for you.

Your free time truly invites you to reconnect with you as you explore over five acres of lush mountainside surrounding the resort or relax in the salt water pool, hammocks, lounge areas, library, game room and on-site spa. As remote as AHKí feels, you are also only minutes away from other activities such as beaches, kayaking, horseback riding, surfing, zip-lining, nature hikes, shopping, and restaurants.

Costa Rica retreat


AHKí is a sacred space that was built specifically according to the ancient science of Vastu Shastra – the yoga of space – invoking peace, wellness and harmony with the environment as well as within one’s self. All of the structures are built oriented to the nine directions, five elements, the earth’s vibrational grid, and the planetary energies. All floors, walls and roofs have been painstakingly measured according to Vastu to maximize the flow of positive energy throughout.

You’ll slumber blissfully in a cabana nestled amongst the trees along a mountain ridge. The heads of all the beds are positioned to the south or east, a Vastu principle that helps to induce a restful night’s sleep. All rooms have large ceiling fans, large windows and doors, plenty of overhead ventilation, mosquito nets, and oscillating floor fans (if needed) for optimal airflow and complete comfort. Each room has a private bath with a large unique, indoor/outdoor hot water shower as well as patios and decks with stellar views of the mountains and valleys.
