About this trip

Join TwinSol's Yoga Retreat Exploring the Elements: Water in the lush rainforest of Costa Rica's Osa Peninsula!


Experience the Water Element with us through daily meditation, pranayama, asana and 2 TwinSol Element Workshops. Through these teachings we'll explore the Chakra System, especially connecting with Swadhistana, the Pleasure Center, also know as the water element. Together we will let go and shed any unnecessary energy and make space for the new.


This unique retreat will be held in the lush rainforest of the Osa Peninsula in Costa Rica. We will live in a tucked away high vibration oasis abundant with wild life, sunny mornings, tropical  therapeutic afternoon showers, gushing waterfalls and absent of electrical power lines. Between classes enjoy a massage in the open-air jungle spa, surf the best right point breaks, waterfall rappel down Kind Louie Falls or simply spend your time sunbathing on the beach watching the crystal blue waters lap the sand or relax in your hammock watching the Tucans fly by. Alive with prana this breath-taking paradise will give us the opportunity to truly connect with the Water Element on a physical, energetic and spiritual level. 


Equally stunning, the Eco-Friendly Retreat Center offers a safe space to unwind, unplug, and relax. Awake and fall asleep to the sounds of the rainforest in your cabina, each unique in it’s own but equally enchanting. Follow an exotic jungle trail that weaves through the cacao and mango trees, leading you to one of the most gorgeous two-story yoga decks in the world where we will spend our time diving deep into our asana practice, meditation and workshops for ultimate healing. Feel free to stay and relax after class to watch the peeling waves of Pan Dulce roll by from the yoga deck or say hi to the monkeys who love to hang out in the trees to watch us do our daily practice. Fresh, locally grown and health conscious, all meals are a part of your stay including delicious 3 course dinners. Any dietary restriction will be gladly accepted without hesitation by the talented retreat Chef and your taste buds will not be disappointed!


Whether you are deep in your own personal practice or have never done yoga before, this experience is suitable for anyone of any level. All we ask is that you come with an open mind and a curiosity to explore the Water Element. We have no doubt you will enjoy your time with us.


Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or just want to say hi!  We would love to hear from you.


love, light & shakas,

Who would benefit from this retreat? Everyone. All we ask is that you come with an open mind and willingness to share yourself. Whether you have experienced a yoga retreat before  or this is your first time, your practice will go deeper in your body and consciousness and you will feel empowered both physically and spiritually. Age, sex, coming on solo, coming as a couple,  never taken yoga or someone who practices every day- it does not matter.  We truly believe this will be a transformational week for anyone who would like to join us.

It was absolutely wonderful to be able to tune into myself and have a blend of more active and restorative yoga. Jenna and Ana have both been fantastic! Good, positive women who are very grounded and truthful but also very knowledgeable and passionate! The lodge had amazing food with a lot of healthy options and the nature surrounding the area was breathtaking! Good spa, but a bit noisy (a lot of people from the hostel). Can’t wait until the next retreat with TwinSol!

Anna and Jenna are phenomenal at what they do! This was just the relaxing get away I needed. I recommend any of their retreats to anyone looking to get centered and meet a diverse group of people.
By Ashley McShane for Spa and Yoga Retreat on May. 22, 2018
The experience that Anna created for us was beyond what I could of imagined! She is a beam of light and love and is truly gifted. I would absolutely do another retreat with her! I am a beginner at yoga and I was challenged both physically and emotionally, but never felt intimidated. I plan to continue my practice at home. Thanks Anna!
By Ashley Reaney for Yoga in Yosemite on Sep. 27, 2017
Anna is wonderful. Her yoga classes are fulfilling for the mind and body. The accommodations are rustic and very comfortable. The food simply delicious. I would recommend this retreat to all of my friends.

Amamamazing! These ladies made everyone feel like it was okay to be vulnerable, but were also very mindful of everyone's comfort level the entire time. This retreat allowed me to connect with myself in a way that was previously lacking. I would do another yoga retreat with Anna or Jenna in a heart beat.

Anna and Jenna's Yosemite retreat was awesome! it was both my first time on a yoga retreat and to yosemite, so this was extra special. I could not have asked for a better group of people to be on the retreat with. It was the perfect combo of meditation and yoga surrounded by nature. The accommodations also exceeded my expectations. While it was a short amount of time, the retreat related activities never made me feel rushed or like i was lacking time. Thanks again Anna and Jenna for making my first retreat experience so special. Cant wait to attend another one!

TwinSol retreats provided the best possible retreat by offering a very relaxed, casual, no pressure environment, but also cultivated an inclusive, intimate environment where they were welcoming, encouraging and authentic. I think their style of yoga and communication is calming, encouraging and I would recommend their retreats to anyone who wants to disconnect and get away by practicing mindfulness and balance. Love these ladies! They deserve all the success in the world, they truly know how to connect with people.
