The Instructor


Lissa Ress

Yoga Ambassador

Organizing a week of healing and happiness. With daily yoga, meditation, local healers, massage therapists, nature, healthy eating, community and charity we can feel the shift into happiness and the true meaning of life and ourselves. It is about allowing time and stillness for everyone to go within. Self care combined with giving back, because without being whole we cannot be of service to others. The modern generation I know and am a part of is a peaceful, consciously aware, generous and loving group of people. I want to bring like minded individuals to heal themselves and heal the world. With education, exposure and donation of time and money we can help and make a big difference in others lives. Each retreat will have 1-2 days focusing on a local charity in need. Guests are encouraged to fund raise for their cause to help raise money and awareness.

Samasati Retreat & Rainforest Sanctuary

The architecture of Samasati’s Caribbean casitas were designed to silently sit within the terrain, climate and natural offerings of this land. We deliver comfort within an earthy simplicity. We have ten Caribbean style casitas built with precious native woods that are nestled within lovely tropical gardens and the lush forest. All casitas have private bathrooms and a spacious veranda overlooking the rainforest and South Caribbean Sea. Some casitas have lofts that accommodate up to three people. All of our casitas have comfortable new mattresses, which are king, queen, full or two singles. Our guest House bungalows are smaller private rooms with a choice of a full or two single beds. The bungalows are semi-private with each sharing a bathroom with one other room. Outside, there are large verandas with hammocks overlooking the rainforest.

Our spa house consists of two cozy rooms sitting high up on a hill. A cool breeze gently brings in just the right amount of fresh air during your treatment. This is a sweet space where our guests feel comfortable and nurtured.

Samasati was amazing! It's perfect for nature lovers, tucked away in Costa Rica's rainforest with a quick 10 minute ride to the beach. The drive from the airport is long ( 4 1/2 hours approx.) but the views are worth it. The staff at Samasati are so wonderful!
