Living a mindful empowered life is living with no excuses. It’s when you are in the flow with your relationships, health, and career. At the base of this powerful person is a dedicated practice – one we believe includes yoga and jiu jitsu. That’s the vision. Let’s manifest it.
But wait, let’s be real. We all have something holding us back – somewhere in life where we are stuck. This retreat was designed for the yoga and/or jiu jitsu practitioner that wants to operate on a higher level and is open to expanding their toolkit for success. Personal breakthroughs and getting “unstuck” often occurs when we least expect it. How about in a jungle in Costa Rica? When you take time away from the daily grind you open up space to absorb new learnings, dive deeper into a yoga and jiu jitsu lifestyle, and connect to yourself and a supportive community.
Now is the time to commit. Commit to yourself. Allow yourself time and energy to take this journey with Omar Lopez & Ryron Gracie. All levels welcome. We encourage both women and men to sign up. All levels are welcome…all we ask is that you are open to personal growth. This isn’t just a vacation. This is yoga & jiu jitsu lifestyle immersion. Are you ready?

Healthy Gourmet Cuisine
Delightful, Locally Sourced
Secluded within the natural ambience of the jungle, Bodhi Tree Yoga Resort strives to use natural, fresh ingredients to promote a healthy lifestyle. Gathering ingredients harvested from nature stimulates individual well being on a ground level and allows ones health to blossom to its fullest. Bodhi Tree dining offers an array of hot and refreshing cold soups, an excellent buffet of veggies and salads, organic chicken, fish and vegan options, catering to all palates!
Bodhi Tree Juice Bar offers fruitful indulgences throughout the day. Chakra Juices and smoothies are packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Revitalize after yoga or surf session with an energy boost.
Plus, solar panels heat the hot water needed for the facility; a self-built water treatment plant is installed to ensure every drop of water goes back into the grounds, irrigating the gardens and keeping everything green without draining supplies; and it is a plastic-free resort!
Yoga & Surf Culture , Jungle & Ocean Exploring
Immersive, Diverse, Adventurous
Looking for Adventure? Nosara is your destination! A year-round surf break, surrounding jungle and yoga enclave provide for any combination.
Rent a Surf board, take a lesson and paddle out into one of the world’s most renowned breaks. Called one of the world’s 20 best surf towns, Nosara offers diverse waves inviting everyone from world-class to novice and intermediate surfers to enjoy the magical and consistent waves year round from dawn to dusk.
Stand Up Paddle around Garza’s northern headland to the fabled Isla Rosada, visit the tucked away “Coco” beach, explore the outer reefs of south Guiones, cruise the Garza bay OR choose the serene waters of the Rio Montana and Rio Nosara, weaving your way through mangrove tunnels to a hidden trail that leads out to Playa Nosara. Either route through adventure or serenity… each will blow your mind!
Kayak the Rio Nosara and Rio Montana, two of the largest rivers in Nosara. Natural beauty abounds where these two rivers converge. For nature lovers, this is quite simply the best tour in Nosara. Kayak alongside great blue herons, anhingas, roseate spoonbills, and maybe even a few crocodiles. Surrounded by the exquisite sounds of the jungle, you’ll weave through mangrove tunnels sometimes no wider than your boat then, cap off your trip with an ice-cold watermelon or a sunset cerveza at the Boca.
Enjoy the longest Zip-Line Canopy Tour in the world located within a pristine 2500-acre forest reserve. Nestled in the mountains surrounding the village of Nosara, travel across majestic mountain ridges and soar high above multiple ravines with breathtaking views of rivers, waterfalls and the Pacific Ocean.
Hike one of Nosara’s hidden gems! This tucked away waterfall destination is a refreshing treat that includes criss-crossing creeks, traversing a cattle farm, and weaving through a primary canopy of tropical dry forest. Stop along the way to interpret the sights, sounds, and smells of everything around you before discovering a series of brilliant swimming holes and small waterfalls.
Plus Horseback Riding, ATV Tours, and Wildlife Refuge offer adventure and excursions daily!
Walk through the jungle path to your own private oasis of tranquility and relaxation. Choose from a variety of unique treatments using local products to restore your body and prepare for another amazing day in paradise.

Coming alone? Great! We can work to find you a roommate* if you want a shared room. About half of our travelers come alone – it’s a great way to travel. Check out our blog post on why traveling alone is a great option!
*Please note that we do our best to match you with your desired room type and price point. In the event we can’t find you a roommate for your first pick, we will present you with different rooming options.
About the Rooms
Rooms are assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis. Book early to secure your preferred lodging.
There are private bungalows with private baths or single, double, or triple rooms with shared baths. All rooms are nice, but the bungalows offers more luxury and privacy.
