Chasing Waterfalls and Sunset View Point

6 reviews
On this adventure tour, you will be taken to 2 waterfalls, a scenic rocky beach and a secret mountain lookout to see the sun set. You will be able to swim, jump and slide into a beautiful fresh water river, see ocean waves crash on picturesque rocks and see unparalleled views of the Uvita valley and Whale's Tale as the sun goes down, all while being surrounded by Costa Rican jungle. We believe that tourism can promote acceptance, cultural understanding and environmental consciousness. Encountering a new country is one of the best ways of opening one's mind. We hope you join us in experiencing what this tour has to offer.

I took the 200 YTT with Lura. She is a very experienced yoga teacher who combines the classic old school yoga with updated healthy body postures. Her insistence on body consciousness is what I personally enjoyed the most. Her type of yoga was exactly what I was looking for : spiritually, emotionally and physically always respecting our personal limitations. Instagram or facebook arn’t a thing for her - another reason why I decided to do my first training with Lura. Housing, food and class size (we were just 4) were all excellent. The fact the the class was small really allowed us to ask all the questions we needed to ask and get 100% of Lura’s expertise and attention. Anatomy classes are included in this program and taught by a very knowledgeable lady. Apart from the course itself, Lura is a lovely, generous and patient person. She is always available for you and will always be available for you in the future as well. My experience couldn’t have been more complete or better. Every now and then there would be extra events we could participate in such as sound baths, traditional indian music, etc. Last but not least Lura gifted us with a professional photoshoot to be ready for the real world. It was a fantastic experience. Lura always makes sure there is a good atmosphere. Great energy, support and care. I got a volunteer job right after the course and I felt ready to tackle the classes as a new certified yoga teacher! Thank you Lura for all your love and motivation! ❤️🙏🏽

My significant other and I discovered this lovely yoga shala during our vacation in Uvita, and we're so happy we found it! The owner, Lura, is a yoga therapist with an abundance of knowledge about yoga and an eye for alignment. She also has wonderful teachers who have a great understanding of anatomy and how to use yoga for strength and mobility. This is a great place to enhance your yoga practice through yoga therapy techniques in a beautiful place! We will definitely be going back in the future!

My experience with Bienestar exceeded my expectations with being provided a thorough education. Lura is bursting with knowledge, and I couldn’t imagine a teacher being more accessible. She worked so hard to make sure my needs were met as an individual, and as a student. With a small class size- I was free to ask all the questions I had, and the experience was so personal. Also speaking to her partner, Ananda, teaching A&P to an extent I wasn’t expecting. I left with such incredible information and resources all around. As a regular yoga practitioner- I came in rather confidently about what I thought I knew. I was able to reshape my foundation for a stronger practice, and learn how to teach this practice with integrity. I was afraid to find a YTT that only focused on feeling more like a retreat, or getting lost in the crowd of a larger class. This was definitely not that- I definitely recommend Bienestar to anyone looking for a solid, thorough education in traditional yoga.

Thank you Katie, Yoga is a deeply personal experience, and each individual arrives with a different level of knowledge, practice and abilities. We work at opening up your experiences in a variety of yogic practices and trying to bring each individual forward in their practice. Thank you for your appreciation of our program, your were a attentive and diligent student and I know a dedicated yogic practitioner.

I recently completed my 200 hour teacher training course with Lura. Her patience, knowledge and caring approach made for a unique and growing experience. She goes out of her way to accommodate everyone and their individual needs and cares about each and every student. I wish I could’ve packed her in my luggage and taken her with me. Laura F.
