the perfect backdrop for the art of relaxation and serenity


Yoga (by definition) is a physical, mental, and spiritual discipline, originating in ancient India. The goal of the person practicing yoga is “the attainment of a state of perfect spiritual insight and tranquility.” Once you know the true definition of yoga, it’s not hard to believe that Nosara has become world-renowned for its practice and teaching.

Our choices are many

Your options begin with just up the road from the Shanta Pura is Bodhi Tree Yoga Resort which is truly amazing. In addition, you will find several other options in the area offering yoga instruction and programs at all levels. The stunning Blue Spirit Retreat Centre is the vision of Stephan Rechtschaffen, MD, a founder of Omega Institute in New York who had long-time dream of creating a similar facility internationally. He saw Nosara as the perfect location and opened Blue Spirit in December 2010.

Located at the south end of Playa Guiones, Blue Spirit is immersed in pristine nature. Perched on a hill overlooking the ocean and surrounded by beautiful hills and abundant flora and fauna, the beach is only a three minute walk away. Food at Blue Spirit is provided by an onsite restaurant and café serving beautiful meals sourced locally from natural ingredients.
