Join your new tribe on an invigorating week of yoga, fitness, movement, relaxation and adventure in the lush Osa Peninsula of Costa Rica, where lowland rainforests merge with mountainous terrain and isolated beaches. This patchwork of greenery houses some of Costa Rica’s most endangered plant and animal species, and is considered one of the most biologically diverse places on earth. We’ll stay at the breathtaking Iguana Lodge a few minutes from Puerto Jimenez, where you'll practice yoga & workout on open jungle decks, sleep in colorful accommodations surrounded by nature and eat fresh, healthy gourmet food to suit all diets.
If you love the jungle and the beach, this is the perfect way to unplug, reflect and reconnect.
THE QUINTESSENTIAL YIN & YANG ADVENTURE
Jungle + Ocean | Yoga + Workouts | Meditation + Waterfall Rappelling | Sloths + Lizards
SoulPlay Retreats motivate personal growth and supportive community with experiences that connect and challenge your body and mind.
Our deal is, "you do you," but we offer plenty of opportunities to make this a an experience that will ignite positive shifts in your life. There are 1-2 yoga classes and one workout sesh each day, as well as arm balance & inversion workshops to help you learn to fly!, meditation sessions, group games & activities, hikes and an epic tree climbing & waterfall rapelling adventure! Do the group things that make your soul play, and take the rest of the time to "do you," get a massage, nap in a hammock or chat with new friends.
This is not your typical yoga retreat!
The accommodations we select and the activities we curate may bring you out of your comfort zone, encourage you to face fears and look at how you show up to new and exciting challenges. We work hard, play hard and rest hard. We start to break through patterns that have kept us from our full potential, all while building real friendships for life.
We start the day with a Vinyasa Yoga class every morning and include a daily Metabolic Effect workout class (30 minute workouts at your own pace). If our day isn't too activity-packed, we'll often end the day with a yin or restorative yoga practice. In between, there's down time and lots of pre-planned activities including a workshop on how to maintain a balanced lifestyle, a session on standing upside down (handstands, headstands and other shenanigans, beginners welcome!), a mala bracelet making workshop and other opportunities to connect...or disconnect.
Play is a big part of our programs - we believe that dropping the hats we wear and being a kid again brings us back to who we truly are and gives us a chance to look at life with a fresh perspective.
This hybrid adventure is perfect for someone looking for an active retreat designed to help you focus on your fitness & wellness while enjoying much deserved down time. Enjoy soulful conversations with people from all over the world and absorbing the rejuvenating energy that comes from being secluded from the rest of the world for a few days.
This trip is designed to refresh and inspire you, and make you feel truly part of something.
We show up for ourselves and for each other, we dig deep, we play hard and come home transformed in some way, every time.
We welcome all levels of experience and make our classes accessible yet challenging, inspiring and fun for everyone. You don't need to be a yogi or a fitness buff - you just need to be a human being interested in exploring, playing, growing and getting your movement on! Basic familiarity with yoga is recommended but not required.

Is this the right retreat for you?
- Have you had an interest in a yoga or fitness retreat but didn’t want to sit in silence for a week or show up and feel out of place physically?
Have no fear! Our yoga and fitness classes are challenging to all levels and we meet you where you are in your practice and physical abilities. Nathania loves to make yoga playful and accessible no matter how much or how little experience you have. Gary’s workouts are designed for all levels of fitness as well. He likes to say that his grandmother and an Olympic athlete could both get a good workout. If you want to dabble in the world of mindfulness and meditation, without being TOO serious about it, we've got you.
- Do you feel like you need to put down your phone for a bit and disconnect with other amazing humans and reconnect with yourself mentally, spiritually and physically?
Let’s get out of the rat race and feel alive again all while making new friends, recharge our batteries, and create some new memories that will last forever!
- Are you a little bit adventurous and that little voice inside is urging you to “get out and flex your holy sh!t muscles”?
We are a perfect fit if you’ve been looking for new ways to challenge yourself mentally and physically in a safe and encouraging environment. The best cure for inaction is to put yourself in uncomfortable situations and be ok with that. Our adventures span the realm of cave drop-ins of 300ft in Belize to zip lining on the longest line in Mexico to jumping from a 50ft pendulum swing. Regardless, we will meet you where you are and help you get to the next level in whatever area you’ve been stuck.
- Ready to see how you stand in your own way so you can move through that and start living the life you deserve?
All you need to be is open to having a new experience and connecting deeply with others from all over the world. You can go as deep into reflection as you want, or keep it casual. If you’re feeling stuck or looking for answers, this is the perfect opportunity dive in.
- Are you a little excited and nervous about doing something like this?
Good! That’s exactly what we want you to feel. From this place of fear and excitement, magic happens! You’re not alone. See what others have said just below. Know that we are going to do everything we can to make sure you have a great experience. All you need to do is show up with an open mind!
