Simpleveda

Ayurveda + Yoga Retreat

Costa Rica

July 6-13, 2023

Pura Vida! I’m beyond thrilled to be hosting your next wellness retreat in one of the most magical blue zones in Costa Rica. This will be my 3rd visit to this particular area of Costa Rica – it truly is my om away from home. I can’t wait to share this experience and the serenity of the blue zone with you as I host, teach, and offer you the kind of retreat that I would want to attend.

There will be plenty of time to unplug, rest, and reconnect with YOU. I also want to immerse you in the culture and the amazing people who live here. Some of what you can expect is an opportunity to contribute to the ecosystem by planting a tree with one of my favorite organizations, snorkeling with the beloved sea turtles, horseback riding, ziplining on one of the tallest and longest ziplines, and a visit to the local farmers market. From our farmers market finds, I will offer a cooking class with my favorite Costa Rican chef! Of course, there will be yoga, sunrise meditations, and offerings to support you in taking this experience home with you.

I strive to create an experience that is fun, relaxing, and expansive. Join me in watching some of the best sunsets I’ve ever seen!

MEET YOUR HOST

Christina Vargas

Ayurveda Health Practitioner | Yoga Therapist

Hi, I’m honored you’re here. 

I am thrilled to host my next retreat in Nosara, a BLUE ZONE of Costa Rica, an incredible place to remember your true nature.

As a long-time yoga teacher, certified Ayurvedic practitioner, and sound practitioner, I enjoy integrating many modalities of wellness during my retreats.

Immersing yourself in nature,  with vibrant food, therapeutic yoga, lots of time for mental rest, and conversations about manifestation, living well, and loving life create the perfect environment for growth and learning.

I will offer the kind of retreat I want to go on. No over-planned days – we will move our bodies each morning with a yoga class, and then we’ll spend time doing other things with our bodies; jungle walks, surfing (beginners welcome!), getting a massage, or endless walks on the beach.

I look forward to sharing this week with you!

LOCATION

Welcome To Nosara

Your Costa Rican Om Away From Home

In 2013, in the quaint surf town of Guinness, and just steps away from the beach, Jade was born and has won numerous awards for its design.

You’ll wake to the tropical gardens, howler monkeys, and exotic birds and after a day at the beach, you can enjoy a refreshing swim in the serene saltwater pool.

Around both sides of the pool are 5 stand-alone bungalows with private terraces. There are two additional private garden bungalows covered in lush flora and fauna where you will see hummingbirds and butterflies.

All rooms have private en-suite bathrooms, AC, wifi, and safe, with room to relax and spend time alone.

The common dining area and yoga shala are bright, open, airy and surrounded by local vegetation.

What I love about our location is that we are the only group on site. The staff is positive, happy, and ready to help with whatever you need.

Words can not describe the gratitude I have for meeting Christina, joining on her retreats, cleanses and having her as my practitioner. Her treatments, knowledge and care helps you back to balance and have det beautiful side effect, of me feeling more content, happy and healthy! She is a light and her knowledge goes beyond this life! Seeing Christina in person, is magical and is the best stress antidote by far – but after moving back to Denmark I am beyond grateful, that she also offers online consultations as well! So people all over the world can benefit from her knowledge and love for supporting others to a better life! Dallas/ Fort Worth area – you are so lucky to have Christina next by! Can’t wait for Christina to come to Denmark and spread her love and support to the Scandinavian people! Thank you for everything your beautiful soul! <3 Looking forward to seeing you soon!

The retreat in Tulum was the perfect atmosphere to escape everyday life, helping to unplug and focus on actually relaxing. The retreat’s location was steps away from the beach providing a beautiful backdrop for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. An added benefit was having fantastic meals prepared by the staff that took into consideration our dietary concerns. Through Christina’s guiding in Tulum, I was able to make connections with old and new friends creating memories that I look back on with fondness.

Om Away From Home offered me the opportunity to reset the basic tenets of a healthy lifestyle that we tend to ignore in our overly booked home lives. Not having to worry about the details, every meal was delicious as it was nutritious. Freeing up our time to meditate, practice yoga, or just enjoy the gorgeous beach. It was a much-needed breath of fresh air that gave me a new perspective to take on the rest of the year reinvigorated. I’m so looking forward to going back.

I went on a weekend women’s nourishing retreat hosted by Christina/SimpleVeda. It was very informative and Christina has a wealth of information when learning more about the Ayurvedic practice. She is very approachable and can serve people on any level of their journey to a more holistic way of living.
