Pilates & Plants ​Retreat in Costa Rica


  • Finca Luna Nueva Costa Rica (map)

Experience the vibrancy of native wild edibles in lush mountain rainforest with daily practices of pilates, yoga and meditation.

Join Six Petals Retreats for their fifth year at a beautiful eco-resort in Costa Rica's lush mountain rainforest for a culturally immersive, intentional, and transformative experience!

As a perfect punctuation mark to winter, our Pilates & Plants Retreat in Costa Rica begins right after the spring equinox. Participants will experience the vibrancy of native wild edibles and medicinals, organically cultivated veggies and herbs, and meet foragers, herbalists and farmers who are deeply connected with the lush land of Costa Rica.

Daily classes include open-level Pilates, yoga, and meditation. Easy, full breathing is encouraged in every moment as we allow our minds to settle and release the last of winter from our bones with the help of warm, tropical breezes. Delicious biodynamically-grown meals are included and dinners are eaten together, mindfully, with Buddhist and Indigenous contemplations offered. During the week, there is plenty of time to attune to your inner rhythms, read, write, hike, swim or simply relax in a hammock... with many shared laughs, stories, revelations, and joy!

This experience is for you if you like to: 

  • Explore or deepen a Pilates, Yoga and mind-body awareness practice

  • Be guided to bring mindfulness and meditation into your daily life

  • Learn about the medicinal plants and flowers of Costa Rica

  • Bring increased core connection to your Yoga practice

  • Get up-close with a variety of tropical birds, baby monkeys, Morpho butterflies, and sloths

  • Swim in rivers or the pool, or soak in the solar-powered jacuzzi

  • Experience an authentic Costa Rican community & be surrounded by the spanish language

During our week-long retreat we did gentle Pilates everyday by a stunning river surrounded by flowers and butterflies. It is literally a paradise to truly unwind and enjoy Mother Earth.
