The retreat center platform
provides ample space for large groups.
The Retreat Center is located up and away from the bungalows with a
platform that hangs majestically over the rainforest hillside,
providing an awe inspiring view of the Pacific Ocean, rainforest, and
wildlife. Luna Lodge provides superb facilities for organized retreats
with eight bungalows, three hacienda rooms, and five tents that can
provide sleeping accommodations for up to 32 people (double occupancy).
With over 1600 square feet of covered open-air space, the Retreat
Center can accommodate large groups who wish to explore activities such
as Yoga, Tai Chi, Nia, massage therapy, and aromatherapy. The solitude
of the rainforest surroundings is also great for language study,
creative writing, meditation, guided relaxation, vocalization, and
business workshops that need meeting space- any activity that would be
enhanced by solitude and privacy. Other convenient amenities include
equipment storage space, two bathrooms, and a shower. In addition, our
large restaurant building with a fully staffed kitchen provides ample
space for meetings, workshops, and dining.
The platform hangs
majestically over the rainforest hillside.

Yoga Immersion Retreat with Cyndi Bulka
March 16 - 23, 2013
Escape from the demands of your daily life and experience a relaxing, rejuvenating week immersing yourself in the nourishing practices of Yoga while enjoying the beautiful rainforest of the Osa Peninsula at the Luna Lodge. Journey into Yoga…move towards the balance and equanimity that comes from finding your sacred center. Together we’ll explore Yoga asana, pranayama, meditation and Yoga Nidra. All ages and levels of experience are welcome. The week will inspire those new to Yoga as well as those looking to rekindle or deepen their practice. Enjoy exhilarating rainforest air and beautiful nature adventure, delicious cuisine and the warm companionship of fellow Yogis. Return home with fresh energy and enthusiasm for the next steps in your personal journey. Cyndi Bulka leads the retreat.
Cyndi is the owner and director of the Moving Mantra Yoga Studio in Raleigh, NC. Her teaching reflects a combination of many years of study and practice which culminate in an eclectic and individualized approach, focusing on organic movement and gentle unfolding from the 'inside-out'. Hatha Yoga, meditation and contemplative writing have provided a foundation for Cyndi's personal journey towards wholeness. "My practice helps me to remain grounded and open hearted while taking in all life has to offer. I find my way to spirit through the experience of embodiment. Yoga reminds me of who I am at essence. Noticing my breath, following sensation in my body, I am reminded again and again the value of presence in the present. This is the gateway inward for me, and is at the heart of my teaching as well."
Your retreat includes
7 nights' accommodation in the beautiful Bungalows. Rates are double occupancy.
3 amazing, freshly prepared organic meals each day
All Morning and Evening Yoga and Mediation Classes
Domestic flights (San Jose to Carate) and group ground transport in Costa Rica
