The Osa : Jungle Life Yoga Retreat

January 13-19, 2019 // Yoga, Surf, Hike, Nature

WITH Jessica Desiree


What's Unique

The Osa is the last untouched area of Costa Rica. The last truly wild, far out, off the beaten path corner of this beautiful country. Located just north of the Panama border, the Osa is home to Corcovado National Park, dubbed the most biologically intense place on earth. With the rainforest on one side and the vast ocean on the other, the country’s largest population of scarlet macaws floating above, the Osa is truly a unique, inspiring and life changing place.

THE HEART // We were hesitant to offer a retreat in Costa Rica because it’s so cliche. Then we discovered The Osa. Away from the traditional tourist stops and Californized towns up north, The Osa is what Yogascapes is all about. Our home is at the edge of the most biodiverse place in the world, where you can walk for days without hitting a man-made structure. The wildlife at the property is abundant and the retreat center is right on the beach. This yoga retreat in Costa Rica is the opposite of cliche because it is designed to pull out your wild side and give your unique voice space to express itself. 

OUR PROCESS // Did you know that we build all our trips from scratch? To learn more about our process and what goes into the making of a Yogascapes retreat, click here.



Jungle Life

This yoga retreat in Costa Rica is designed to fill your heart with nature, your soul with daily awakening and your body with nourishment and deep rest. Most days will feature a morning flow class and an afternoon restorative yin class. During the day we’ll have a couple of group surf classes planned and a group excurion to Corcovado National Park. The rest of the time you are whole heartedly invited to do whatever you want. Whether it be walking the beach with the hundreds of beautiful Macaws, taking a nap in a hammock, getting one of our wonderful massages or finding another adventure to embark on (kayaking, ziplining, fishing), your time is yours to make the most of. No matter what you decide to do with your free time, we’ll come back together over family style meals that will most likely be the highlight of your trip!

Testimonials & Our Story

“I just returned from a Yogascapes trip to Bali. It was everything they said it would be and more! From the extremely organized planning to the week of fun, I was completely thrilled.  Leah was an amazing host/organizer and made sure everything ran smoothly.

The location was AMAZING.  Naya Ubud was the perfect place for the retreat and was a wonderful home away from home. Many different options (private room, shared room, etc.) made it flexible and comfortable for everyone.  Plenty of free time and terrific organized trips as well as great yoga kept it well balanced.
From the top of the volcano for sunrise to the water temples to a variety of yoga routines, we were exposed to so much!  I am looking forward to taking another trip with Yogascapes soon!” – Sharon

“This was my first retreat with Yogascapes and it far exceeded my expectations! The breathtaking location, the wine tasting, the delicious food, everything was just fabulous.”

Jessica Desiree

Jess embraces letting the beauty you love be what you do! She first began teaching yoga in remote villages in Mongolia and was amazed at yoga’s universal ability to inspire and heal. She enjoys guiding her students toward a celebration of the heart, an awareness of the intuitive body, and a deep sense of belonging. She embodies the belief that until we give adequately to ourselves, shining light into our own souls, only then can we find the wealth of energy to give with true intention. With that concept in mind, Jess’s classes are full of playfulness, optimism, forgiveness, empowerment, and humor; reminding her students that anytime we link the mind, body, and soul and give selflessly with intention, on and off the mat, we are practicing yoga.

Of Every Yogascapes Retreat

Our mission is to connect people to their deepest purpose/truths, wellbeing and inspiration. We combine vibrant yoga and wellness teachers with incredible guides, local culture, nourishing food, inspiring adventure and a crew of fun-loving people from around the world. Along this journey, you’ll have a Yogascapes Guide supporting you every step of the way, from signing up to helping you on a glacier. 

While every single retreat we create is unique based on the local culture, incredible teachers, the time of year and the environment, every experience is built on the following pillars.



Each retreat is filled with a mix of yoga, mantra, mudra, meditation and more. To learn more about the specifics of this retreat, check out the schedule or contact us. 

When you come on a yogascapes retreat, nothing is mandatory and we build in plenty of time for you to be own your own, to rest more, to explore more, or to be open to whatever shows up. 

We love food, period. Delicious, healthy, beautiful, thoughtful food that nourishes the body and inspires the creative soul. Food is where we come together to replenish our bodies and where our community is built.

Traveling is adventure of the senses and we build each trip to open our senses up to the world and be open to the world through our senses.  

We believe the experiences that last a lifetime are the ones in which you are learning and integrating what you learn into your life. Our teachers and guides create unique opportunities for deepening and expansion of your practice.

We know that life is overwhelming at times and our nervous systems beg not only for the medicine of adventure, but for deep rest and rejuvenation. A week of quiet nights and deep sleep, time for napping and giving yourself permission to do nothing at all. 

Our mission is to connect people to their purpose by exposing them to practices, people and places that bring out their deepest truths and desires. Each one has the intention to bring you into a deeper connection with yourself and your true gifts. 

Come with no story to defend and no judgement to be had. Meet people who will change your life and/or share in all the ups and downs. Connect to old friends and family in a new way, on a retreat, or when you go back home. Our own healing is the healing of the planet and so we work work with eco-lodges and companies that have similar ethos and missions. 

​Giving Back: 2 trees are planted every retreat sign up to help protect our planet and natural resources. At check out, we also offer you the opportunity to give to inspiring local and international projects. Find out more here.
