Costa Rica Retreats


This small, Central American country is filled with rocky beaches, lush rainforests, volcanic ranges and sunny skies. Rustic and exotic, Costa Rica brims with life and color; it’s not uncommon to see brightly hued toucans or playful monkeys in the trees. The dramatic sunsets are said by many to be the most magnificent this side of the hemisphere. For these reasons, and so many more, it’s no wonder its inhabitants happily live the “Pura vida” lifestyle. Used as a greeting or goodbye, this commonly used phrase among locals reminds us how good life really is. Surf, kayak, snorkel, or relax and nibble on delicious local fruits on one of Costa Rica’s breathtaking beaches during your free time.

The yoga retreat is 3 nights/4 days long and includes both morning and afternoon yoga classes, meditation sessions, silent walks, and 1 meal. The schedule allows for downtime so the guests can enjoy the beach and the sun. Generally, students want a complete escape from their daily lives, to find that inner peace.

Silvina Camara, Professional Yoga Instructor, 500 E-200 RYT

Silvina Camara (E-RYT 200) was born in San Carlos de Bariloche Patagonia, Argentina.

Her first passion and love was singing, and she moved to Miami in 1995 to pursue her singing career and record music for Disney World studios.

In 2001, after enduring an accident that changed her life in many ways, Silvina found yoga – which became her greatest passion and new way of life. She took her first ashtanga yoga class with Fred Bush at Miami Yoga Shala. It was not until 2007 that she become a certified power yoga instructor with Fred Bush and Mark Giubarelli.

As she began to feel the transformation yoga had in her life, she felt inspired to share the gift of yoga with others. Silvina believes the mind, body, soul connection is extremely sacred, and that it should be nurtured and inspired. With that mentality, she teaches her classes from her heart, creating an uplifting, safe environment for students to begin to explore and expand within their own body and consciousness.

Silvina is continually inspired by yoga’s transformative power—both internally and externally, and finds it to be a source of love and strength. She strives to bring a sense of fun, freedom and kindness to her classes, and hopes to impart nuggets of yogic wisdom along the way. Her classes tend to be power yoga and vinyasa-based (linking breath with movement), with a strong emphasis on alignment.
Notably, Silvina was a director and teacher at one of the very first yoga studios in South Beach – Miami YogaShala (2008-2011), where she taught power yoga, vinyasa, and hot yoga. She founded Shakti Yoga Miami in 2011, where she offered public classes, private sessions, workshops, and teacher trainings. Additionally, she is the yoga teacher of choice for many celebrities, and NFL players.

Silvina’s commitment is to inspire others to realize their own gifts and powers and to step fully into their most brilliant self and dreams. Her soothing voice, enthusiasm, intensity, and humor, coupled with her knowledge and sensitivity leads yoga students through a practice that is genuine, personally rewarding, and well-rounded in every aspect.
