Fountains of Youth – Where people live the longest and happiest lives

Did you know that there are locations on this planet where people live to be centenarians (past 100 years) and experience the highest levels of well-being and happiness?

Out of all the thousands of cities around the world there are only five of these locations.

These locations are called Blue Zones and they include:

One location we can tell you about in particular is Costa Rica’s Nicoya Peninsula, because we’ve held retreats there before and have one coming up in April 2019

What you’ll find in the Blue Zone of Nosara, Costa Rica:

  • Pristine beaches and warm water
  • Ocean coves to swim in
  • Natural lush green jungles
  • Organic fruits and vegetables
  • Bright, colorful singing birds, butterflies and lizards
  • Really, really, happy and accommodating people

And of course the singing howler monkeys to welcome you as you arrive. They even have matching outfits. Okay not really, but the humans aren’t the only ones happy and living a long time in this location.

When’s the last time you visited a place that says that people are so happy and healthy that they live to be over a hundred years old?

The only thing that would make this location better is if you experienced the energy of this land first hand for yourself.

Having The Best Blue Zone Travel Experience

You’ll find many opportunities to visit Blue Zones but none like our relaxing and magical all-levels friendly April 2019 Yoga Retreat. There’s nothing quite like having someone else curate the ultimate week long vacation. That’s what we’ve done with this retreat. There’s nothing for you to think about. Simply being in the environment with your world-renown teachers who know exactly what you need is enough for your mind, body and spirit to know what to do.

During your week in Nosara, Costa Rica you’ll wake up to sunrises over the ocean on a pristine 3 mile beach protected as a turtle refuge. This is a week of recharging and rejuvenation.

What A Next Level Yoga Retreat Looks and Feels Like

If it is vitality you seek, then Kundalini Yoga is exactly what you need. Through the chanting of mantras, the magnificent sounds of the gong and the ocean as your backdrop – there is nothing else that compares to what Kundalini Yoga can do for you.

You may have heard whispers of DNA recalibration, increasing your manifesting powers and activating youthful vitality using Kundalini yoga…and it’s all true. In Kundalini yoga, there is a mantra and kriya for everything. Whatever your heart and mind desire, Kundalini yoga delivers.

This is what you can expect in our April 2019 retreat in the Costa Rica Blue Zone which happens to be offering a big special until January 31st 2019. We’ve designed the perfect soundscape setting in a high-end, relaxing resort called Blue Spirit Center.

When Yoga Retreats Go Above The Ordinary

Adding value beyond the typical yoga retreat is what sets top yoga retreat companies apart from others. Value added experiences and hand picked teachers are a couple of ways the April 2019 Yoga Retreat does this. The gong is a healing tool whose sound reverberates in, around and through your body. The sound currents know exactly where to go. Chakras are aligned, and you feel like a brand new being. One experience is incredible, but a weeklong experience of Kundalini yoga coupled with gong energy is absolutely transformative.
