Testimonial – Blissful Costa Rica Retreat I had never been on a yoga retreat when I signed up for Asami’s Blissful Retreat in Costa Rica. After taking, and loving, Asami’s classes in Montreal for a few months I has no hesitations about signing up as soon as she announced it. I was excited about escaping from the winter and getting to do Asami-yoga for nearly a whole week. If this is what I had experienced I would have been over the moon, but the retreat was so so so much more than I could have imagined! I thought I would be working on my physical strength – my balances and inversions – but instead, in the space of a few short days we built and strengthened a close community of compassionate, vulnerable, courageous, empathetic and supportive women. Yoga and meditation – along with our other activities (surfing, SUPing, hiking) – was the vehicle, not the destination. That my experience was this magical was no accident! Asami had clearly put in a lot of thought into the themes and tenor of each practice, which made it easier for us to connect with ourselves and others. Apart from this, Asami’s own open-heartedness and enthusiasm means that she brings out the same qualities in others. The location was perfect. We were tucked away from the distracting tourist hustle and bustle but still surrounded by a welcoming community at Vida Asana. The basic but thoughtfully renovated premises and delicious meals made it feel like a home away from home. I hope that you are able to find the opportunity to go on one of Asami’s retreats.

This was my first yoga retreat. And I wish there was a word to describe how amazing it was. I came very open minded and nothing I envisioned could have prepared me to what I actually experienced. I let go of everything and just lived my life to the fullest as if I was a child again. Every day we did yoga, ate the delicious food that was prepared to us, played, shared and discovered together as if we had know each other forever. I didn't really knew anyone (except for Asami) coming into this retreat but I left having found my tribe. Those ladies are in my life forever.

The trip was really good, as the accommodations were very nice and the ambassador was wonderful. The meals could have been better, but the owner of Vida Asana was so thoughtful, and an above-and-beyond concierge for us!

I had a wonderful, energizing, yet relaxing, trip at Vida Asana. The food was amazing, the people so friendly and welcoming, and I loved cooling off during the day in the pool. I would definitely book a room at Vida Asana again in the future!

Our trip to Vida Asana was more than I could have imagined. Peaceful, beautiful, entertaining, delicious. The whole group came only knowing only one other person or none, yet we could not have felt more connected. Avery did a beautiful job planning our days, yoga sessions, meditations on the beach, opening and closing ceremonies, connecting us with ourselves, nature and each other. My body and soul were rejuvenated after this retreat. Thanks to all for such a memorable experience! I can't wait to do another yoga retreat soon.

The perfect uplifting, revitalizing getaway. I went on this trip with my sister for our birthdays. She knew Avery from yoga class but I hadn't met anyone. From the start, Avery was available, helpful, warm, kind, and comforting.. And her yoga classes were awesome all around. The trip agenda was flexible and accommodating, Vida Asana was paradise. On this trip, We were able to give back to Costa Rica through a planned tree planting evening on the beach. I Have so many memories and often think back to the beautiful women and beautiful country I was able to spend time with this past March.
