The Sanctuary at Two Rivers:
Cabuya, Costa Rica
The Sanctuary at Two Rivers is a magical private rental property exclusively for amazing Yoga Retreats, Yoga Teacher Trainings, or any group of up to 16 people whom are interested in health and wellness. They are one of a select few Retreat Centers in the world that was specifically designed and built by veteran yogis whose sole intention was to create a first-class Retreat Center to commune with nature, practice yoga, contemplate, meditate, detox, and become balanced through health and wellness Yoga Retreat Vacations.
The Sanctuary's 100% off-the-grid solar powered facility with luxury-deluxe-modern accommodations, Extensive Spa menu, and Gaia Gourmet Organic Vegetarian, Vegan, and Gluten-Free Cuisine is exclusively for Yoga Retreats, Yoga Teacher Trainings, Wellness Retreats, and Nature Wildlife Adventure Retreat Vacations. The Sanctuary is also the ideal location to become a Yoga Alliance Certified Yoga Instructor on any of the 200 hour 3 week or 300 hour 4 week Immersion Yoga Teacher Training Certification Programs that they host.
Imagine rising with the sun and the howls of Howler Monkeys, not hearing any urban nor suburban noises, all the while infusing yoga, meditation, wellness and spiritual healing, with wildlife and bird watching. The Sanctuary at Two Rivers will rejuvenate your body, tidy up your mind, and boost your spirit.
Plan for your experience:
Fly on Sansa (not Nature Air) from San Jose into Tambor. It is a beautiful 20 minute flight followed by a 40 minute taxi ride. There is a $2.25 airport tax to be paid upon disembarking the small plane. Be ready with exact change for that. It works best to plan your travel for the day before the training begins and to spend Saturday night in Montezuma. This will give you a chance to settle in at The Sanctuary on Sunday. We will be served a delicious lunch at 2:00pm and our first training session starts at 4:00. This session is a required part of the training so please don’t be late! Plan your departure for late morning on the departure day. Our program ends after breakfast and check out time at The Sanctuary is 10am.
The YTT schedule is very full and does not leave much unstructured time to explore on your own. Please come a few days early or plan a few days after the program to do that.
What to bring:
You will also need at least 2 notebooks, several pens in different colors, flashlight with batteries, sturdy river walking shoes (have these on your feet upon arrival), insect repellant, eco-friendly personal care products (lavender, peppermint & tea tree essential oils come in handy, so does baby powder), first aide necessities (insect bite soother & arnica are essentials), easy to store snacks like dried fruits, nuts and nut butters, and cash for taxis ($50 each way from Tambor airstrip to The Sanctuary) & staff gratuity (suggested amount is $280 for 28 days for dining service, daily house keeping, weekly laundry service, luggage transport, concierge services and more). The Sanctuary's housekeeping staff will do laundry for you at the end of weeks 1, 2, & 3. Bring eco-friendly laundry soap (like Dr. Bronner's) to supplement with hand washing if you wish. The Sanctuary has yoga mats and props there, but we also recommend bringing a yogi toes towel because it will get sweaty ;).
