I INVITE YOU TO COME DO YOGA WITH ME IN PARADISE.
THE "PURA VIDA" LIFE
Carefree, laid-back and optimistic, Costa Rica's motto literally translates as "Pure Life." It's not only a greeting you'll hear daily from friendly locals but a way of life. Just like yoga, it's about living in the moment, with a smile. It's what makes this magical place the perfect setting for My Yoga Retreat.
HERE'S THE STORY
After 8 years of annual visits to Santa Teresa, Rebecca finally said, "F*ck it, I'm moving to Costa Rica." A yoga teacher and recovered corporate junkie, she believes in chasing the dream in a smart and inspired way. That’s what led her to start My Yoga Retreat, so she can inspire others to do what lights them up.
"We are all still living off the good vibes of our trip. It was such a special experience —I honestly can’t thank you enough!" - Lee

A family-owned and operated establishment, Yoav and Gali take exceptional care of their guests from attending to every detail of your stay to cooking beautifully presented organic meals.

AT MY YOGA RETREAT, THE FOCUS IS ON YOU. Because this is a private yoga retreat, custom-made for you and your group, each day's yoga practice is deliberately designed so it feels like "just what the doctor ordered."

Meet your teacher
DON'T TAKE IT TOO SERIOUSLY. SMILE. RELAX. DON'T FORCE IT. JUST BREATHE.
Rebecca Bly first audited yoga classes as a teenager, opting out of the tedium of high school phys ed. Before Madonna made yoga popular, it was all "roll and glow" classes; the word "chatarunga" had never muttered. She was instantly addicted.
The yoga scene may have changed, but her enthusiasm and passion haven’t. Classes are infused with teachings on letting go, breathing deeply and giving things a try. These embodied yoga gems go beyond the retreat. You’ll see how they sneak into your everyday life and make you feel more easily at home with yourself.
With over 12 years of experience as a teacher in Washington, DC and now in Costa Rica, Rebecca has the skills to make your yoga classes just right for you. Her expertise lies in "reading the room" and offering creatively designed sequences, deliberately cued and perfectly suited to your energy level and ability. Beginners are always heartily welcomed.
She received her certification in Vinyasa Flow Yoga at Tranquil Space in Washington, DC in 2006 and draws upon her experience in many other interests: flying trapeze, Pilates, dance and of course, surfing.

MAGIC – that’s the word visitors always use to describe this place. It’s impossible not to feel touched by this town. You will be mesmerized by the beauty of the beaches, transfixed by the wildlife and invigorated by the lifestyle.
Santa Teresa was a sleepy fishing village when foreigners started arriving in the '90s. The trailblazers were hippie surfers living in tents on the beach. Now the town attracts a chic crowd; indeed, celebrities such as Gisele Bundchen, Tom Brady, Matt Damon and Miley Cyrus have been spotted vacationing here.
There's no better way to experience Pura Vida and enrich your yoga retreat than through the countless fun activities this town has to offer. We can organize and book any activities for you during your retreat.
