My adult daughter and I did the Yoga Retreat to Playa Cativo Lodge near Golfito, Costa Rica. The experience, orchestrated by Sandra Tedeschi, was absolutely wonderful and exceeded any expectations. If you enjoy yoga, nature, wildlife, outdoor activities, delicious cuisine and spending time with fun & interesting people you will LOVE this experience! The age range of participants in our group was 25 - 75. Beginner to experienced yogis. Singles, couples and me with my daughter.
Sandra Tedeschi, the owner/trip leader, is a beautiful person inside and out. Every little detail of this incredible retreat was handled with grace and ease.

The Lodge is only accessible by boat. You take a small plane from San Jose Regional Airport to Golfito then shuttle to the marina where a boat transports you to the Lodge. You may see dolphins swimming next to your boat on the 30 minute ride. We did, and a sea turtle. There are also whales there in the fall. On another boat ride we saw a couple of gorgeous toucans flying along the coast.

Upon arrival you are greeted and given an orientation and shown to your room or casita. The lovely rooms are open air with beautiful views of the ocean. The Lodge staff were all very courteous, hard working, friendly, helpful. Most spoke/understood English. Tomas gives a fabulous Thai massage. I didn't try any of the other spa services. The laundry service was great.

We were woken every morning by the howler monkeys. It is an incredible, haunting experience. The sounds put out by these relatively small monkeys are enormous... shocking actually.

3 great meals a day in our own dining area and happy hour before dinner. Yoga, led by Sandra, usually twice a day on a platform in the woods overlooking the beach. Gorgeous setting!!!
The other activities you could participate in included kayaking, SUP, hiking, snorkeling and swimming.

An unforgettable, wonderful experience!

I am so happy I took a plunge and decided to join Sandra's retreat in Montana. Travel restrictions and uncertainty of Covid's ebbs were the reasons for hesitation, but Sandra's magic positivity, calm, professionalism made all worries recede. It is my second retreat with Sandra and she is magical. The whole enjoyable, meaningful flow of those 5 days appeared to unfold so effortlessly. I am sure it was preceded by thorough preparation, scouting of the location, and making sure all safety precautions that present time requires are observed (and they were). The ranch selected for the retreat deserves the accolades in its own rights. It draws you to look into your soul whether it was your intention or not. The trip to the National Glacier park was wonderful. It is a place you'll want to go back again and again. Oh yes, yoga! It was a big part of our days and never do I look forward to practice as when Sandra is leading it. Have to mention food. Phenomenal (kudos to Ananda and Tylor).
The first thing you will do when you come back from Sandra's retreat is to check the schedule for the next ones. I surly did.

I just got back from the Montana women's yoga retreat with my adult daughter. The retreat space was magical, the food was incredible and nourishing to the soul. Every detail was well thought out and communicated.

Sandra is an amazing yoga instructor and a kind, humble human. Many women were there by themselves, and we all jelled into a welcoming community from the first day. No drama, no egos!!

If you are considering a retreat, I highly recommend hers!!

Thank you for sharing your Montana yoga retreat experience and your kindest words. It was a joy to see you both as mother and daughter meet up in Montana and enjoy a special time together. I greatly appreciated both of you and your presence on and off the mat during the retreat! Sandra @vajrasolyoga

If you are considering taking a retreat organized and lead by Sandra - my best advice is to sign up now!! No need to look any further. My husband and I just completed our retreat with Vajra Sol in Santa Theresa, Costa Rica. It was exceptional in depth and breadth. Sandra’s yoga classes appealed to all levels of experience. We were gently guided to meet ourselves ‘where we were at’ in our bodies and practice. We were supported, encouraged and challenged throughout our time together on our mats. Sandra has inspired me, at 62yrs young, to move back to a more active practice both personally as well as In a teaching capacity and for this I am so grateful. Beyond the daily yoga practices, Sandra arranged for SUP and Surf outings, and from transport to the instruction everything went smoothly. Our week was 5 star: Sandra’s presence, Malé’s food, Eduardo’s villas, Juan and Andy’s SUP excursions as well as our soulful connections (within and without). Pura Vida!

Vajra Sol Montana yoga retreat was beyond my expectations. Sandra is AMAZING and everything was taken care of from the transfers to and from the airport and fun excursions as well as free time for rest and rejuvenation. This retreat was a reset and was life changing for me. It came at a very pivotal time in my life. Grateful for the fabulous yoga, hiking, restful, rejuvenating and making connections with like minded super fabulous women from all around the U.S. Highly recommend Vajra Sol!!

It was second retreat with Sandra and several people I met in Costa Rica joined this retreat as well. Sandra has now devoted group of people traveling with her all over the world. She has a great taste to places and properties. The ranch where we stayed this time was beautiful: trees, lakes, easy trails, wonderful spiritual structures. Yoga was accessible and challenging at the same time. We did a great hike on of the days.
If you want a beautiful,clean, luxury location and excellent yoga, join us next time.

This was a wonderfully balanced retreat - lots of down and active time in the loveliest setting imaginable. Sandra's attention to every detail from the accommodations to the meals to the activities was flawless. I felt completely taken care of. Our daily yoga practice was relaxed, focused and growthful.

Our chef, Male, prepared FANTASTIC food, accommodated special needs with creativity and was just a delight to meet.

The accommodations were sensational - casual, modern European sophistication in the land of pura vida. The manager and the staff were very attentive and friendly.

I just returned from a five day retreat at a gorgeous ranch in NW Montana. I could not have asked for a better experience, especially during Covid and this new way of moving around. This was not my first retreat with Sandra and Vajra Sol (it was my 5th! Yup, Sandra's retreats are THAT amazing!) but it was my first retreat during Covid. The ranch was beautiful, safety measures were in place and Sandra worked her magic to create a warm and inviting atmosphere, where it was easy to drop into the calm of yoga and meditation and connect with the group while maintaining physical distance. The majority of our time was spent outdoors enjoying nature, which included an absolutely stunning hike in Glacier National Park! So grateful for this retreat - I'm already looking forward to my next one!

I highly recommend Sandra's yoga retreat in Santa Teresa. Beautiful rooms (with private pool if you choose) fabulous food, and Sandra is the real deal. She embodies so much of what's great about yoga. She is calm, focused, sweet, attentive. Our retreat was ages 21 - 70 and it worked for all of us!

This was my first winter retreat. I knew going in that the retreat would be well done…I’ve traveled with Sandra/Vajrasol before. And as always it exceeded my expectations. The location what a gem. The Vista Verde Guest Ranch sits on over 600 acres of land in Clark, Colorado…just outside of Steamboat Springs. Rustic feel with all the luxuries. The ranch and surrounding area is beautiful. One of the first activities I did was back country skiing. I was lucky enough to have the guide all to myself. I had never been any type of skiing before. I so appreciated my guide’s patience and thoroughness with teaching me how to stay upright and to fall and get back up. Not only did I have the guide to myself but as far as my eye could see, I had all this glorious snow-covered land to myself. To be able to be out in nature like that and experience it without the noise of civilization was incredible and special. Even when I was with the people in my yoga group it was still that same experience of being the only people on the land for miles on end. I also went dog sledding which was on my bucket list. What an adrenaline rush… a very unique experience. Also snow shoeing and snowmobiling. Both fun. Yoga with Sandra of course was fantastic. In the huge loft of a barn where you could say hi to the horses on the way in. The employees that work there were all so great! From the guides to the front desk staff, to the chef staff etc. Friendly and helpful they really make the experience. And they even had the expected ranch dog…a beautiful and easygoing golden retriever. Also, the meals were all incredible. Every meal we were offered something different. And always dessert. We were very well fed…good thing we were being so active 😉 Oh and happy hour every night. An unforgettable experience. Wherever Sandra goes I will go.
