Yoga at Costa Dulce
Yoga is a crucial element of our life here at Costa Dulce since it is the foundation of the holistic lifestyle we embody. Yoga and wellness is the key to take care of ourselves, our surroundings, and the people we love.
Costa Dulce accommodates your next-level yoga experience in either our ocean-view yoga shalas immersed in the Nicaraguan jungle. Practice overlooking the Pacific and the mystical landscapes of Costa Rica while spotting some dolphins or whales.
Let the soft breeze stroke your skin and the ocean sound soothe your soul. Breathing in and breathing out as you come home.
Yoga Retreat Experience in Nicaragua
Our weekly experience usually runs Saturday – to – Saturday, but whenever you choose to join, you’re in for an excellent yoga experience. Our classes vary daily and weekly, ensuring your growth and experience on and off your yoga mat. In our Yoga School we believe yoga is way more than ‘just the poses’, we see the poses as a way to explore the depths of yourself, your body and your connection to the whole.
Daily yoga in one of the most stunning yoga shalas I have ever practiced in, overlooking the jungle and incredible beach and ocean sprawling out below. Every time I close my eyes to think about paradise, that is what I see and will never forget it.

I just returned from my week long yoga retreat at Costa Dulce with my friend and I can not recommend staying here enough! – Cassandra
The yoga studio, let’s just say, it was love at first sight. Katelyn is a knowledgeable attentive instructor with a beautiful spirit. Breathing into shapes to the constant sound of rolling ocean waves, the wind on my skin and a spectacular view was far more than a grounding experience.
Ann is the in-house yoga teacher and she is quite simply the best yoga teacher we’ve ever had class with. My wife actually decided to switch her yoga teacher training from what she had already planned in Vermont, USA, to the teacher training that Ann and Monica are putting on in Nicaragua every summer.
Apart from the physical benefits of the challenging yet accessible sessions, I was blown away by Monica’s intuition. It was like she was reading my mind, and even in that short time I felt like I learned a lot of really useful tools.
We had a very lovely time at Costa Dulce! We were there for 6 nights and attended yoga daily. The yoga teachers were very experienced and we were given the opportunity to improve our practice. It was a very supportive environment.
Costa Dulce Yoga Teacher Training
At Costa Dulce School of Yoga, yoga is not a quick fix, but an ongoing process of conscious exploration and growth. With our Yoga Teacher Training program, we hope to provide you with a steady framework of both yoga and consciousness practices.
Our training is constructed around the mind-body-spirit relationship and aims to balance the physical, mental & energetic body through ancient techniques of yoga (Lyengar, Hatha, Kundalini, Vedic history, etc.) in combination with modern sciences (psychotherapy and neuroscience).
Self-acceptance and confidence are very important aspects of the training, as learning how to speak up truthfully is super important for your teaching and for your life. The nourishing Costa Dulce environment encourages open communication, where the teacher is also the student and everybody learns from each other. This Conscious Hatha Yoga YTT is a beautiful growth experience for everybody involved, inspired by the incredible natural scenery around.
Trust your journey with our talented team.
Our Yoga School is acknowledged by Yoga Alliance.
Growth is never-ending: That’s why all of our teachers are forever students in their yoga journey. Each and every teacher at our Yoga School has their own unique way of translating the ancient knowledge of yoga into daily ritual & sessions.
