About this trip

Retreat from your busy life and allow yourself time and space to reflect, connect and rejuvenate. Discover more balance, greater peace and tranquility at the beautiful AHKi Retreat Center in Costa Rica with Sally Mitchell from Body Flows Retreats. We welcome all levels, beginners through advanced. We pride ourselves in creating a safe and supportive environment where everyone feels included and the yoga is available, challenging and transforming for all.


AHKi is an intimate yet spacious retreat destination nestled amongst 5.5 acres of nature, lush, green mountainsides, blue ocean waters, and lots of sunshine. With it's accessible location, AHKi is the perfect destination to totally relax, rejuvenate and recharge. As remote as the retreat center sometimes feels, it is just minutes away from beaches, kayaking, horseback riding, world famous Nosara surfing, zip-lining, nature hikes, shopping, restaurants and more.

"Ahki Costa Rica, an intimate retreat, where your soul can breathe" - founder of AHKi


With 2 yoga classes daily, including vinyasa flow for all levels and yin/restorative yoga, healing and rejuvenating for the body, mind and soul. Linking movement with the breath, and moving your body through both yin and yang postures, we'll help you to build strength and flexibility inside and out. Our daily guided meditations will help you to calm the mind and discover a space of stillness within, from which many possibilities may arise. 2 optional workshops will be offered during the retreat (learning natural, efficient and injury free ChiWalking or ChiRunning, and the Eight Limbs of Yoga, taking Yoga into your daily life). All classes and workshops are optional although encouraged.


Massages and spa treatments are available onsite at AHKi Retreat.
