Immerse yourself for a week in paradise. We will spend a week deepening our practice of yoga, relaxing on the beach and developing a joyous community of like-minded people. We will practice twice a day, varying the practices so we all feel strong and powerful in our minds and our bodies.

This retreat is appropriate for yogis of all levels, from beginners to teachers. Every student will be met at their individual experience level, as Matt Giordano guides practice in a way that will anyone to their own next level.

Every retreat with Matt is a full spectrum experience. Encounter it all: standing poses, hip openers, inversions, shoulder openers, arm balances, restorative poses, thai massage techniques and more. Alignment and technique will be layered intelligently day-to-day so that each student begins to understand their body on a new level with increased confidence! Between yoga sessions, we will enjoy freedom in nature. Relax, and enjoy time alone to reflect or journal, or spend time with your fellow retreat travelers to laugh and play, bathing in the water and on the sunny beaches. There will be time to choose your own adventure each day as well, taking advantage of the activities you can add to your agenda, including surf lessons, horseback riding, zip-lining and massage.

The Instructor


Matt Giordano

Yoga Ambassador

Matt (500 ERYT) gives credit to an influential figure from his teenage years--his high school art teacher-- for sparking within him the curiosity and tenacity that eventually led him to yoga. It was Eileen Walk who told Giordano: "You are not allowed to say 'I can’t.' You must rephrase to a question: 'How?'"

That inquisitive and unrelenting spirit laid the foundation for Matt to begin a devoted yoga practice. When coupled with his passion to understand the physics and subtle alignment of the body, Matt’s dharma as a teacher came into focus.

Originally from Sea Cliff, Long Island, Giordano is primarily based in Connecticut and Manhattan, where he teaches at local studios and shows off his daring side riding motorcycles along the open road. Matt is often on the go, traveling internationally to teach yoga and perform acrobatics. Well-known for his ability to guide students deeply into postures with his refined attention to detail and precise action cues, Giordano is an adept guide for all-levels students at festivals, workshops and in his weekly studio classes. His study of biomechanics and integrative mind-body techniques informs his teaching, as he draws upon wisdom from traditions of yoga, martial arts (Aikido and Tae Kwan Do), acrobatics, AcroYoga and Thai Yoga Massage. In the end, Matt inspires a humble confidence, allowing students to find ease while expanding the edge of their comfort zones.

As Giordano helps make AcroYoga a household name, the media has taken notice; featuring him in Martha Stewart’s Whole Living, Alignyo, Yoga Dork and on LIVE! With Kelly and Michael. Events the world over are allowing countless students the opportunity to practice with Matt. No one misses the action, as his growing digital content (YouTube, Instagram, Twitter and Facebook) has become another platform for Matt to share delight, technique and even the occasional appearance of his dog Tito, a Papillon and heart-melting super yogi.

The location was spectacular! The staff at Costa Dulce were wonderful often going above and beyond. I enjoyed the Nicaraguan foods we were treated to for many of our meals. The activities offered were unique and so much fun! My only concern would be about organization/ communication of activity arrangements, whether regarding times, additional costs... Etc. Loved this trip, would do it again I. A heartbeat!!!

The transportation to the hotel was easy to find and conveniently set up for us. Costa Dulce was not what I was expecting. I think I would have enjoyed it more if I had known what I was getting into, and would have packed very differently. It was more of a hostel on the ocean than a hotel. Small rooms with no locks, screen walls, and bugs everywhere. Some rooms had bathrooms, others you'd have to walk outside to get to the bathroom, and showers were shared by several rooms. No A/C and limited airflow in the rooms lead to hot and buggy nights. The meals were good, and what seemed to be authentic Nicaraguan food-very carb heavy and little protein. There was a super convenient 'honor bar' where you could get beer, wine, rum, or soda and charge it to your room. Massages were great, on site, and super cheap. Most of the activities were done by local contractors and very well done. Horseback riding was awesome. My group and ambassador was great, but have a few more creature comforts would have been appreciated.

My trip to Costa Dulce was incredible beyond words. From the location to the food, from the yoga classes to the energy of the city, everything was perfect. The location is beautiful and very rustic, the food was some of the best I've ever had--each meal was more delicious than the one before, and the yoga itself was absolutely amazing. Massages, surfing, and nature walks were wonderful too. Would recommend and definitely travel there again.

The retreat location was great, rustic, but that was to be expected. Food was fantastic, they were wonderful about accommodating dietary restrictions and the place was so relaxing.

My group and I loved Costa Dulce and the staff! The location was idyllic and I could not have asked for a better retreat venue and participants who joined.
