Costa Rica Mindfulness & Yoga Retreat with David Yglesias

June 24, 2017July 1, 2017

Playa Uvita, Costa Rica

In our modern, hectic world we have so much competing for our attention.  With commitments at work, school, and home, it is so easy to lose our true meaning and purpose. That is why it is so important to take time for yourself, using the tools of mindfulness, to reconnect your body, mind, and spirit.  What better place to make time than in the natural beauty of Costa Rica on the unique Pacific coast!
