It truly is paradise, the surroundings, the people, the food was out of this world. Everything is so well orchestrated that it made the experience so relaxing and restful. This is my fifth time there and it just keeps getting better every year. The food was exceptional this year. The place is wonderful and the staff go out of their way to make it special for everyone. It is such a great experience that it is very difficult to describe accurately in words, you need to just experience it yourself. No one yet has walked away disappointed and that is why they keep coming back if they are able.

This was my first time to Costa Rica and my first yoga retreat. Making the decision to go was one of the best things I've ever done for myself. Every aspect of this trip was amazing. Beautiful location and accommodations, delicious and healthy food, yummy drinks and twice daily yoga with Ali! I can't think of a better way to start the new year. Looking very forward to the 2021 retreat!

Another amazing year with Ali Matt at Pranamar! This year I brought my husband to see if I could get him excited about initiating a yoga practice in his life. I was so pleased to see him looking forward to doing yoga twice a day! He felt very comfortable with the group and really enjoyed the R&R to start off his 2020 year. I consider this Mission Accomplished! Thank you again Ali for your acceptance of all levels and all people. ? Highly highly recommend this retreat.

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
