  • Description


    Are you looking for a safe and loving space to share, work, grow while being surrounded by beautiful nature and tropical garden?
    I'm a holistic health practitioner i.e. yoga and holistic health teacher, healer and health coach since 1996.
    I live with my wife Eva, who is a spiritual counclilor and strategic coach and trainer and our two boys (8 and 6 year old) in our holistic health center, a beautiful place that I built 7 years ago in the jungle of the Caribean side of Costa Rica.
    The place is off grid with water coming from a mountain source and electricity from solar system.
    We have two little rivers(and a naturally made river hole to bathe into) joining on property, one of them has formed a natural pool
    We would like to bring our center to higher standards by building a green house to provide more organic foods from our garden.
    Also create a community to host a few more families
    We are 20 from the beach.
    We love to do yoga, eat healthy meals, have fun and great talks, beautify our space.
    We have 3 cats and our place is peaceful.
