Yoga & Nature Retreat
with Cat Doyle (Unroll the Mat)
November 11-17 2023
Imagine waking up to a peaceful soundscape of gentle waves,
chirping birds and howler monkeys. You walk out the door of your cabina and are met with lush green gardens and the fresh ocean breeze. After following a small pathway, you arrive at the main beachfront building with both the downstairs restaurant and the upstairs yoga shala boasting stunning ocean views. This is your home for 7 days as you join us and our intimate group for a beachfront yoga and nature retreat that is sure to leave you feeling replenished and deeply inspired.
Cat and I are thrilled to be partnering up once again to deliver an intimate retreat experience that is sure to be the escape that you’ve been yearning for through these last few challenging years of pandemic restrictions. I have been living in this area of Costa Rica for four and a half years so we are able to offer a uniquely local experience of the region – you’re getting the insider’s scoop.
Ylang Ylang Beach Resort is located in Montezuma, a small Pacific coastal town in the southern part of the Nicoya Peninsula. This is one of only five blue zones in the entire world – regions that are marked as having the happiest people with the longest lifespans. Montezuma is known for its never-ending white sand beach, as well as the nearby Romelia Wildlife Reserve (turtle sanctuary and hatchery) and the majestic local waterfall.
The boutique luxury resort is owned and operated by locals, which means that we are helping to support the local economy and population. We will also have a Costa Rican guest teacher to guide one of the daily yoga practices, giving participants a unique taste of the local yoga community.
Guests can customize their retreat experience to be as relaxed or as lively as they’d like. In addition to twice daily yoga and meditation, we’ll enjoy the waterfall hike together, as well as a day to explore the vibrant town of Santa Teresa. Optional horseback riding, surfing, zip-lining, mountain bike or ATV rentals and on-site spa services can be arranged at an additional cost.

Meghan is the antidote to our busy, over-scheduled, fast-paced western lifestyles. As soon as I show up on my mat in her class, she guides me out of my stressful and overthinking state to a place where I feel calm and present. Meghan has been the sole facilitator in my journey to practicing yoga on and off of the mat. I am forever indebted to her, as she has guided me through many tough times in my life this past year. Meghan has a very rare gift and if you are fortunate enough to experience this through her classes, consider yourself a lucky one.
