Thank you for visiting the Danyasa™ Eco-Retreat website. Located in Dominical, Costa Rica, our movement arts and yoga retreat oasis lies just two minutes from the beach and the warm Pacific Ocean, at the base of rain-forested mountains where the Baru River meets the sea. Waterfalls rush down the mountain valleys behind, iguanas bask in the sun and scarlet macaws squawk and squabble in the tree tops. Waves crash on the shore and the river winds past our back door. As home to the gorgeous Bamboo Yoga Play studio, we offer a variety of movement classes and workshops, yoga retreats, hooping retreats, dance retreats and teacher trainings. We also offer eco-accommodations, adventure tours, healing mentoring and bodywork and rest and relaxation amidst the majestic natural beauty of Costa Rica. We invite you to visit us and open to experience the boundless creative life force which naturally wants to move through us!

"A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play; his labor and his leisure; his mind and his body; his education and his recreation. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence through whatever his is doing, and leaves others to determine whether he is working or playing. To himself, he always appears to be doing both."
