This was my second time back to Pranamar with Ali Matt, and I can’t wait to go back next year! With the amazingly friendly staff and beautiful accomidations you can’t help but settle in quickly. Yoga twice a day is a must; the restorative yoga in the evening is just what you need to unwind and deepen your vacation relaxation. Through out the booking process Ali had all the answers to my questions, and great suggestions once I got there! Thanks for another fabulous year!!
SUCH AN AMAZING TRIP!!!! The area of Costa Rica (Santa Teresa) is absolutely beautiful, the staff at Pranamar are instant family, and on top of it all, you get Ali Matt leading Yoga Classes 2 times a day!! Unreal!! So i had done Yoga a total of 3 times before this trip, so clearly inexperienced. This was the perfect combination of vacation, relaxing beach setting, and slow paced lifestyle to really let you experience Yoga the way i figure it should be like. My lack of prior experience did not deter at all from my experience, if anything i think it amplified it. Thank you to our amazing group of people on this trip, and mostly thank you to Ali for organizing everything and absolutely crushing it!!! See you next year! JM
This was my second year at Pranamar for Ali's yoga retreat! Hard to believe that it could be better than last year but it was just perfect -- amazing yoga, incredible resort, terrific people........there aren't enough superlatives to describe just how wonderful it is to start your new year in Costa Rica doing a week of yoga with Ali Matt :)

This yoga retreat exceeded all of my expectations regarding yoga class quality, group dynamic, location, service and food. The setting at Pranamar was gorgeous and allowed a real reconnection with nature. This was my first trip to Costa Rica and I cannot say enough about the friendly people and warm culture. It is EXACTLY what I needed to kickstart my new year. 🙏🏻
Such a wonderful trip! Beautiful location, breathtaking views, amazing company. Ali and Sarah taught classes that were highly accessible to any yogi. Being the newbie in the group, everything was extremely welcoming and warm. 10/10 experience.
