Classes you can enjoy any day of the week! Super friendly, grounding, centering and beautiful! Loved this place! Great deal for 10 classes at $10 a piece, including mat rental. Great way to spend the morning. I love the 10am classes. Perfect time for yoga to start the day and carry over to the rest of the day! Super peaceful,... More

I stayed at Danyasa during my visit to Domincal for a surfing trip. I have seen shipping containers turned into living spaces on TV and have always dreamed of staying in one. The homes at Danyasa do not disappoint and are amazing! The property is aesthetically pleasing, and the homes are beautiful. I felt very relaxed during my stay here.... More

My friend follows Sophia on Instagram. After a few beers one night, she says we should go to this really fabulous resort in Costa Rica. I say, sure why not. Best snap decision I've ever made! Dominical is a TINY hippie village on the ocean. It has one main road, and there are only about 400 residents. Don't let that... More

Danyasa Eco-Retreat is a stunning getaway in the small beach town of Dominical. The owners Sofiah and Brendan are so warm and welcoming to any and all! The studio offers about 20 yoga-related classes per week. The variety of classes definitely kept my interest... everything from alignment focused classes to dance inspired vinyasa, you'll learn new ways to move and... More

After a festival where I camped for a week, it was a great relief to end up at Danyasa, where I was treated with care and felt pampered at their facilities. I stayed for several nights in the Ganesha Room. The air conditioning and really comfortable bed made it very difficult for me to leave the room. The location is... More

Exceeded expectations!!! My husband and I were looking forward to a nice vacation at the beach, complete with surfing for him and yoga for me. This is the perfect location and space. Walking distance to the beach and right on the main road in Dominical. I teach yoga in Lander, Wyoming..where it can easily be below freezing when I head... More

I had never done yoga before and took two beginner classes. The classes were great and relaxing and the yoga instructor was very helpful and welcoming! The blackboard outside the studio/shop entrance is very helpful as it lists the classes available for the week ahead.

I loved this place so much for multiple reasons: The staff is welcoming and helpful. It attracts a diverse crowd of yogis. The construction of the units with shipping containers is brilliant. Its clean. It oozes authenticity and I felt like I was at a new home from day 1.

Danyasa is the perfect sum of its parts, part yoga studio, part retreat, part sanctuary, part socialising, part paradise. Brendan and Sofiah own and run Danyasa with passion, they genuinely care about their guests, and Akayate, who is on reception is a wonderfully warm and incredibly helpful lady. The yoga classes are varied, challenging, chilled, and focuses, with several different... More
