As the legends say, when you take a step towards healing yourself, you take a leap towards healing the world.



The story of Shambhala Costa Rica is a love at first sight story. From setting foot on the land for the first time, we instantly knew that was the ideal location for the retreat center. Its proximity with Playa Ostional where three different species of turtle come to lay their eggs every month, the beautiful ocean view from the lush garden, the gentle slopes and trees. And close enough to experience the sense of community that exists in the area of Nosara.

After travelling through the lands of the East and learning about yoga and meditation in India, Thailand and Indonesia, the founders of Shambhala, Urusvati and Isabelle decided to create a space where they can share their discoveries in Costa Rica. Costa Rica is home to the Pura Vida way of life. Pura Vida means “pure life”.

The nature, the people and the atmosphere provide a safe ground to slow down and reconnect with Self.
