I'm here on this beautiful planet to explore and learn as much as I can. I believe life is all about perspective and gaining as much of it as possible. Perspective is gained when an individual uses any one of there five senses to better understand there environment.

Words can not describe our unreal experiences, everyone stepped out of their comfort zone multiple times during the trip, faced their fears and most of all we all gained 15 new sisters. This trip was a truly unforgettable experience that all of us will keep close to our hearts for years to come. Our stay, the people, the country, the food is just amazing! #costaricarebels !!

Perfect location to retreat to and focus on what matters. Secluded yet close to beautiful beaches and towns. El Sabanerno felt like home. An excellent spot to wake up in and come home to after a day of exploring or soaking up the salt water with an Imperial in hand.

The trip fulfilled every need I had coming into it- from peace on the mat, an amazing group of women, to a tranquil space for reflecting and growing. Shayna was the best retreat leader I could have asked for- attentive to all of our needs, supportive, warm, on top of every detail and aspect of the trip. Just fantastic.

WOW. Just WOW. Considering that A. this was my first yoga retreat and B. this was my first time traveling with Trip Tribe, I am entirely blown away and slightly addicted! I traveled with my boyfriend, who is NOT a yogi (bu really enjoyed the trip!!). We loved meeting new people and exploring with such a fun group of singles, friends, other couples and fellow travelers: Details: First of all, the coordination of flights and transportation was perfect. Everything went smoothly. Trip Tribe communicated everything we needed to know well ahead of our departure and Amy, the trip ambassador, supplemented with additional information as needed. Once we arrived at our destination, I was pleased to see that our accommodations at El Sabanero were humble, yet comfortable and adequate (think: clean but simple), and that there were common comforts like hot water (with some patience), safes and wifi (slowish wifi). They even provided a few shampoos, bars of soap and beach towels, which was unexpected. The natural surroundings of El Sabanero were beautiful and it was such a treat to stay in such a lovely natural environment. The general atmosphere at El Sabanero was amazing. The pool was lovely to swim in after our sweaty yoga sessions. The large meeting/eating space was tranquil and lovely. And the yoga spaces where we practiced were calm and peaceful. And the staff from all different parts of our trip -- from Harold to Hazel to Ana to Fernando to Donald, etc. -- were amazing, kind and welcoming. They made it really feel like home! The food at El Sabanero was AMAZING. A-MA-ZING. The kitchen staff really knows what they are doing and totally spoiled us with fresh bread, homemade gourmet meals and amazing dishes all week long. Even some of the packed lunches (for when we weren't there during lunch) were good! A HUGE thumbs up and major reason why you should stay at El Sabanero! Also, it doesn't hurt that beer/wine/cocktails are crazy affordable and also delicious! As for the yoga, Amy did her usual amazing thing. I've taken several classes of hers in DC, so I wasn't surprised to find that she taught similar wonderful classes in Costa Rica. Newbie or advanced, this girl's classes are a MUST-do! I particularly loved her Fusion Flow Yoga class (think martial arts meets HIIT meets yoga) and the nightly Nidra/Restorative classes. Major thumbs up for the quality of the classes, variety of classes and expertise of our instructor and trip ambassador! Additionally, I went to several beach visits during my trip with the group, and loved them both! I event tried my hand at surfing which was a total blast. I would also recommend getting a massage from Ana, going on the adventure tour and heading on the Catamaran Sunset sail (erm, skip that if you are seasick!). All in all, this was an amazing trip. Kudos!

The entire staff at El Sabanero was amazing! Harold, Donald, Hazel, Amit and Fernando were a dream team. We were well fed, taken care of, and given space when we needed it. The setting was so peaceful and beautiful I would highly recommend it!
