  • Description


    Costa Rica is now our location after closing our operations in Perú. We are now in Shiroles, Bribri indian territory, Talamanca, Limón.

    For the ones interested in yoga. Yoga has 12 branches, from asanas(phisical exercises) to Pranayama(breathing exercises), meditation, the way of life, diet, philosophy, etc. . We will learn together sharing the experience.

    We do some light work to take care of our basic needs and lead an organic life out of the grid.

    There are not rigid rules or schedules. The only exception is not animal flesh eating while here. So you can be flexible.

    Usually I wake up early with the light of the day, take a snack, do some work. Around 11 am, we watch some video about the Vedic culture, meditate for a while and do the asanas. Then we have lunch and do some reading from our small library and then work a little more and at the end of the day we watch a Video and retire.

    We cook and have meals as we like, fruits and vegetables are freely available.

    This is an organic agricultural tropical farm and we attend an orchard for vegetables. Vegetarianism is practiced. and we have some light work to reconnect with mother earth and for our basic needs of living.

    We will arrange for accomodations as needed, since this is a new location, we don´t have much infrrastructure,

    -This area is a indigenous territory of the Bribri etnia near the caribean sea, close to the border with Panama..
