Your Journey Home

Oftentimes, the obligations and routines of our daily life challenge our ability to connect with our inner wisdom.

The practices of yoga, meditation, journal writing, and discussion, throughout the week will help guide us back to the place within each one of us which is our home base.

Our intention is to provide an opportunity to find the tranquil space within via the practices of yoga, meditation and mindfulness. During our twice daily scheduled time together we will weave these practices together, so that the physical practice of yoga may become the metaphor for the inner journey home.

Transportation Information

Airfare and Ground Transportation

Air Transportation:
You’ve picked a great time to travel to Costa Rica because the airfare rates are the lowest we’ve seen in years. Book your travel into the Liberia Airport (Code: LIR) – this is a modern airport that services many major airlines. Be sure to check Southwest (United States) for amazing fares. Most airlines will arrive mid-day and depart around 1-3 pm.

Ground Transportation:
You will need to take a shuttle from the Liberia Airport to the Costa Rica Yoga Spa (approx 2.5 hours). We will arrange two shuttles the day the retreat starts (from LIR usually around 12:30 and 3:00) and two more on the final day (approx 7:00 am and 9:30 am) if you would like to use those. We can also recommend trusted shuttle options if you would like to arrange your own transportation.

Arrival, Departure & Check-In Info:
Most planes arrive in Liberia between 11am and 2 pm and it takes approx 2.5 hours to travel to Nosara from the airport. Check in on Saturday will be between 2pm and 8pm. We will have an evening class that night to welcome you to Nosara. On the final day we will have a morning practice available to students who are able to attend (depending on your departure time back to the Liberia) and checkout will be completed by 11 am. Let us know if you have any questions about the schedule!

Journey Home

During your retreat you will be offered the silence, space and beauty to slow down, tune in, connect and journey home to the wisdom necessary to do your life’s work. Yoga is used as the organic metaphor for life experiences. Away from the busyness and routines, a new rhythm arises; A rhythm woven with movement, nurturing and deep connection. Challenge, feel and connect to the wisdom always available and already within you. Daily practices of mindfulness, meditation and journaling will be easily incorporated beyond the retreat environment. Take home with you the ability to connect amidst the storm of life’s challenges and beauty.

Erin – Yoga Instructor – E-RYT

Five Parks Yoga

Erin received her 200-hour teaching certification in 2008 in Arvada, Colorado. For the next several years, she taught classes at her neighborhood studio.

In December of 2011, she and her husband moved their family of five to Tamarindo, Costa Rica for six months. They fell in love with Costa Rica and decided to split their time between Colorado and Costa Rica. Upon her first return to Colorado, she opened her own studio, Five Parks Yoga, which allowed her to teach in both Colorado and Costa Rica.

In an effort to bridge the gap between Colorado and Costa Rica, in February of 2015, Erin and her husband Matt started filming her yoga classes and posting them on YouTube, so that her students could practice with her when she wasn’t in town, (either town!). Since that time, she has posted over 250+ classes and now has 90,000 subscribers and students from over 200 different countries. While her original intention was to simply share her classes with her students at her two homes, the unexpected result of her YouTube channel has given her an opportunity to connect with students from all over the world. Visit Erin online at: https://www.youtube.com/c/FiveParksYoga

Erin’s other passion project began in 2013 when she co-founded Warrior Girls Yoga – yoga workshops and camps for middle school and high school-aged girls. ( http://warriorgirlsyoga.com/ )The program has been an amazing part of her passion for sharing yoga in a full-hearted and meaningful way.

Erin strives to share her love for self-discovery through the practices of mindfulness, meditation, and yoga during this retreat.

My time with Erin and all the yogis at the Costa Rica Yoga Spa was truly magical! The yoga was perfect and the outings were so fun! I especially loved the paddle boarding. The food was healthy and good and of course, the accommodations and setting were beautiful! I couldn’t stop taking pictures!!:)

My favorite part though was yoga with Erin!!:)

Kim – United States

 

The Five Parks Yoga retreat in Nosara was one of the most amazing experiences I’ve had in my life. I cannot recommend it highly enough! The Costa Rica Yoga Spa is a magical spiritual reprieve. Starting and ending the day doing yoga with Erin in the rancho was breathtaking. Erin is a fantastic yoga instructor, and also an incredibly genuine, warm and authentic person. It was so much more than yoga though…personal growth, meditation, new friendships, fun activities in Nosara, beautiful photos and amazing food.

I came home feeling balanced, strong and grounded.

Trip of a lifetime!

Josee – Canada

 

I had the most amazing week with Erin at the Costa Rica Yoga Spa!

Erin is an amazing yoga teacher and a wonderful person and practicing with her surrounded by the most breathtaking view was unbelievable! The classes were suited for all levels of yogis, the activities were great and there was just enough time to relax and hang out. The hotel was perfect, quiet and peaceful and the food was amazing (I am not vegan but I discovered awesome food).

The entire experience was very well balanced and I would definitely go back without any hesitation!

Hila – United States

 

The Costa Rica Yoga Retreat with Erin in Nosara was one of the coolest experiences I’ve ever had.

I have never done a yoga retreat before but I really liked Erin’s youtube videos, and the same caring, relaxed vibe that she gives off in her videos is what you’ll experience in person. The location is absolutely beautiful and the view from the outdoor yoga “studio” is just breathtaking. I found a week to relax from the hectic pace of day to day life, meditate, reflect, and have some fun. Daily trips to the beach just made it that much better!

Most importantly, you’ll find that Erin and Matt and incredibly genuine and caring, and seemed personally invested in making sure that everyone had a great experience.

I would highly recommend this retreat and would love to do another one myself!

Jennifer – United States

 

This retreat was truly incredible.

One of the best decisions I ever made was to go, and I would encourage anyone even remotely considering it to DO IT. The setting is breathtakingly beautiful and peaceful; the food is unbelievable; the staff is warm and helpful and accommodating. And that is not even touching on Erin and the yoga and all that she so generously offers. Erin and Matt created a sense that this was YOUR retreat to spend how you liked. You could partake in as much or as little as you wanted. The generous and warm spirit of Erin and Matt “trickled down” to create a sense of community and closeness among the group that we all felt and that has remained with us after the retreat has ended.

The words I have used to describe the retreat: transformative, peaceful, healing, inspiring, fun, invigorating.

JeanEllen – United States

 

This yoga retreat with Erin Sampson was amazing. The Costa Rica Yoga Spa is a great place…very authentic and so peaceful in a beautiful setting. The food was some of the best I’ve ever had. The yoga was fantastic. The week soothed my soul. Highly recommended!

Deborah – United States

 

Pura Vida! I can’t recommend this trip enough. Each day had a very nice balance between yoga, activity and relaxation. The schedule was very smooth. The food was incredible! The accommodation were incredible-and it was a great group of people! Everything was my favorite! Thank you!!!
