-How much is the retreat?
I am offering this to you for only $2097 shared occupancy and $2597 single occupancy.
-Once I apply, then what happens?
Once I receive your application, I will review it and contact you via email (please make sure I have your best email address). We will then schedule a quick chat to answer any questions you may have prior to you laying down your cash.
-How “eco” is this eco-retreat center, exactly?
Just the right amount of “eco.” *wink* While this retreat center is totally eco-friendly, it also offers all of the necessary comforts of a luxury vacation, such as a pool, air conditioned rooms, WiFi access, a wellness center, and (of course) hammocks.
-What other amenities are available to us?
Oh, just everything your heart could desire. Our concierge will be able to book additional excursions and services for you, at your request. While these are NOT included in the retreat price (so you’ll have to pay additional fees), here’s a sampling of some of my favorite options —
- Massage and spa treatments (mmmmmhmmmm)
- White Water Rafting (what fun!)
- Stand Up Paddle (splish splash!)
- Mountain Biking Tour (why not?)
- Tamale Cooking Lesson (spicy!)
-Do I have to share a room with a stranger?
Only if you want to. Single or shared rooms are available (shared rooms are double or triple occupancy). That said, wouldn’t it be fun to make a new, awesome girlfriend?
-What’s included in the retreat price?
The retreat price includes your accommodations and meals for the week PLUS transportation to and from San Jose International airport. It also includes daily yoga classes, unlimited use of beach cruisers, and 4 optional adventures:
- One surfing lesson so you can learn how to ride the waves! (Awesome!)
- One rainforest adventure excursion, including waterfall climbing and rappelling, and zip lining through the jungle! (Yes!)
- One day trip to Manuel Antonio National Park, where we can dig our toes into white sandy beaches! (Swoon!)
- One horseback riding jungle spa adventure. (Giddy up!)
These adventures are included in the trip price, but if you decide to opt out of attending, you may do so. The price is the same for those who attend and those who do not attend these excursions. 🙂
Beer and wine will be served with dinner. If you want to get your drink on at other times, bring some extra $$.
-What’s NOT included in the retreat price?
The price of the retreat does NOT include any airfare costs. You’ll have to fly into San Jose International airport (SJO), so I would check those flight prices from your home city. The retreat price also does not include any travel insurance, which you are required to purchase in order to attend.
-What are the payment plan options?
Once you pay your initial deposit, the remaining balance needs to be paid by January 3, 2017. You choose whether it is completed in one or two payments. We can chat about this more deeply on our phone call.
-How soon do I have to book in order to grab my spot?
As soon as possible, lovely lady! Space is limited, so I’d recommend applying ASAP!
-Is this a yoga retreat?
Technically, no. It’s a retreat where we’ll do yoga. While there may be some talk of Chakras and essential oils, we’re not going to be focusing heavily on the spiritual side of the Yoga practice. My goal is for you to feel fully comfortable and alive in your body while we’re enjoying Costa Rica, so daily yoga will help us achieve that.
-What if I’ve never done yoga before?
That’s totally okay. I’ll make everything easily adaptable to beginners and advanced practitioners.
-What flights do I need to book?
You’ll need to fly into San Jose International airport (SJO). I’ll be booking a group transport from SJO to Vida Asana for 2:00 pm on March 4th, 2017. The retreat will wrap up right after breakfast on March 10, 2017, so we have plenty of time to take the shuttle back to the airport before your afternoon/evening flight on the 10th. *more info on this to come so hold off on booking your flights for now.
Any other questions, don’t hesitate to email firstname.lastname@example.org and ask away!
