Sanctuary Santa Ana

Our newest Costa Rica location is set on a private gated estate in Santa Ana upon a verdant hillside known as Alto de Las Palomas. This 5-acre oasis is nested against a gently sloping lawn with dramatic palm trees, manicured gardens and vibrant tropical flowers. It offers a magnificent natural environment with the comfort and facilities of a luxury retreat. This unbeatable location is close to the best cultural experiences and shopping spots, 30-minutes from SJO international airport, 90-minutes to the nearest beach, and 5-minutes to CIMA hospital, yet secluded enough to enjoy incredible sunsets in the privacy of your own jacuzzi.

The villa is a former colonial mansion full of old world charm and sophistication. It has been fully restored and updated so we can enjoy all the convenience of a luxurious modern home, including a library-lounge with wall to wall bookshelves, comfy sofas and club chairs.  The guest rooms vary from cozy standard rooms to spacious luxury suites. Each room is uniquely adorned with tasteful decor and hardwood furnishings.

Live Well, Be Well

The delightful grounds include a fully covered open-air yoga space, blue Spanish mosaic-tiled elliptical cold water pool, jacuzzi and a sandstone deck. The outdoor common areas are ensconced in palm trees, gardens, airy Mediterranean style terraces, poolside lounging areas, and balconies that offer stunning views of the bustling capital and distant volcanoes. The weather is pleasant all year round.

We have two intensive immersion trainings scheduled at Sanctuary Santa Ana this season. We invite you to arrive at 4:00pm. Each weekday you’ll sweat and flow with a morning Lakshmi Rising Hatha Vinyasa class. Basic accommodations include a shared double room, but we have options to upgrade to a single occupancy private room. The natural beauty of this region makes it a perfect site for a fabulous wellness-infused eco-adventure. Excursion options may include coffee and cacao tours, visit to and hiking at nearby Poas Volcano, local museums, wildlife sanctuaries and more!

It works best to plan your travel for the day before the training begins (Sunday) and to spend Saturday night in any of the neighboring towns of Santa Ana. There are hotels, hostels, and Airbnbs at all price points. Travel delays are quite common, so this will give you some buffer time to avoid stress or missing our opening session. 

The simplest route for international travel is to fly into Aeropuerto Internacional Juan Santamaría in San José (SJO). From there, we recommend taking a short taxi from San José our villa. 

We do not recommend renting a car.

Our program begins at 4pm with and opening circle followed by dinner on the first Sunday of the training and ends after breakfast on the third Saturday. Arrival time at The Sanctuary is between 2-4pm. Plan your departure for late morning on the final Saturday. Our program ends after breakfast, and checkout time at The Sanctuary is 10am.
