Lovely Time @ Epic Living Retreat
Feb 2016 • Solo
Amber & Daniel are wonderful hosts and such kind, grounded people! They were incredibly supportive in helping me plan and prepare for my Costa Rica travels to their retreat center. My lodging accommodations were cozy, clean, private and such a relaxing place to rest my head. And the raw-organic food was out of this world! Fresh, clean and green. The detox was just what my body needed and has inspired me to take these eating habits home with me. Amber is a phenomenal Yoga & Pilates instructor. She is super knowledgable about movement and the human body and working with many different levels of fitness. I really appreciated Ambers ability to speak calm and professionally while giving simple yet clear cues that helped me stay focused and confident in being able to follow along with her class. Her classes are creative and challenging and Amber adds in her own humor that makes it a more fun & personable experience. Thank you, thank you! Highly recommend this retreat center for your next adventure!

Fantastic guided Tour
Nov 2014 • Family
The guide we hired was fantastic; he knew the park and its creatures so well he was able to spy and point out to us not only the usual monkeys, birds, sloths, butterflies, but also a rare helmeted lizard. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and saw and learned quite a lot as well

Amber and Emily do a great job with The Center for Epic Living. I get 100% organic produce from them. They are always accommodating and helpful with my Epic Living basket that I get once a week. Thank you for being so patient. See you guys soon.

Excellent Pilates and Yoga
Apr 2014 • Solo
I started each morning during my Costa Rica vacation with Amber's classes. I practice yoga regularly, but it was my first time trying Pilates. She is a great teacher and the 1 1/2 hour class flew by. She teaches for all levels. The studio is beatuful and light filled. My body felt great each day.

A must attend location for yoga
Jan 2014 • Couples
The center for epic living is located in Manuel Antonio and affords a great view of the Pacific ocean while you are getting your yoga groove on.The owner and lead instructor ,Amber,is a 20 year veteran of ballet and dance from California.Her lithe toned body and prima ballerina face are on par with the view and her attentive instructions to all levels of yoga devotees make this a cannot miss location for Pilates and yoga.My wife and I attended both types of classes and enjoyed them immensely.Emily the always happy and smiling intern is a joy to see upon entering this studio.We only regret our week went by way too fast .For the men out there I am a 57 year old male ,a sportsman, with a body scarred and pinned together from a lifetime of activity.She is great on having you respect your body and offers modifications on poses for those physically challenged or injured.The best money you can spend in Manuel.

Great!

I am fairly new to yoga. I know lots of poses and can participate in an all-level class but get nervous it may move too fast or there will be too many advance moves (binds, inversions). This class was great for everyone. I loved the sequencing, pace and flow. Amber is an excellent teacher -providing very helpful and detailed cues so that the student could experience the proper alignment and form. The studio is lovely -- brand new room, with a mirror, lots of light and a view of the ocean. I am looking forward to returning tomorrow!

Excellent for all levels
Dec 2013 • Solo
I am new to yoga since coming to Manuel Antonio in December. I practiced bikram yoga for about a year almost a decade ago and nothing since. I wasn't sure my 50 plus year old, recently retired, recent ex-smoker, over stressed body was ready to commit, but I have found Amber's techniques of vinyasa yoga and fusion yoga/Pilates to be challenging and attainable. I have learned with my daily practices, felt welcomed and encouraged to move and grow at my own pace. I have seen almost immediate improvement in my stamina, strength and clarity.
The studio is clean, has breathtaking views of the Manuel Antonio Park and Pacific Ocean, a organic produce program, and holistic products to purchase. Very impressed with the depth of knowledge and variety of activities that the staff and studio is offering. Tourists and locals all seem equally welcome. Not sure how this internationally known nutritionist, dancer, yoga instructor ended up in this piece of paradise, but my body and soul are sure glad she did.

Best place in Manuel Antonio for Yoga and Pilates
Dec 2013 • Solo
I've been living in Costa Rica for several years and visit Manuel Antonio often. I've taken Yoga classes at several studios in Costa Rica over the years, but I must say that the studio at The Center for Epic Living is not only my favorite, its by far the cleanest and nicest studio I've been to in all of Costa Rica.. And from the studio's floor to ceiling glass windows you can see the ocean and watch amazing sunsets while taking a class with Amber (the owner) or one of the guest teachers. This is also a great place for Yoga and Pilates teachers to host retreats, since there are several hotels within walking distance (two located directly across the street), and its also located near shops, restaurants, cafes and a quick 2 minute drive to several of Costa Rica's most beautiful beaches, including Playa Espadilla and Playa Biesanz. Next time you're in Manuel Antonio, stop in to The Center for Epic Living to take a Yoga or Pilates class or pick up natural foods and health products at their store!

I have been inspired and motivated to activate my lifestyle. I have gotten dietary nutritional advise, been re-inspired to practice yoga regularly and to generally re-evaluate my health life.
The Center for Epic Living is an asset to Manuel Antonio.
