Join Baxter for his 10th season in the magical town of Yelapa, and his third year hosting this yoga adventure at the lovely retreat center, Pura Vida. Located at the end of the bay, an easy 10 min walk from the pueblo of Yelapa, Pura Vida is a perfect place to cultivate what Costa Ricans call “Pura Vida” or Pure Life.
In yoga, we call the underlying energy of life Prana, and there is lots of it here, including on the open-air yoga deck overlooking the Pacific Ocean that will be our home base for our twice daily yoga sessions, designed to be accessible to students of all levels, including those new to yoga.
Yelapa, reached only by boat, takes people back in time enhancing the feeling of “getting away from it all” and invites participants to remember the simple life. Walking the beach, hiking in and out of the village, crossing the lagoon, walking up river, getting in waterfalls all create a sense of grounding in this other cultural world steeped in nature...

Yoga Retreat and Travel Adventure
May 12-22, 2024
11 Days on The Royal Circle - Casablanca to Marrakesh
Labyrinth medieval cities, shops piled high with exotic spices, rugs and pottery, medinas, kasbahs, mountains and ocean, Morocco is a land of vivid contrasts. It is the gateway between two continents, Europe and Africa, and home to ancient traditions and diverse peoples. This tour is a cultural immersion of Arab, European and African influences.
We meet in the famed Casablanca, travel north to the capital, Rabat, and then on to Fes, into the Atlas Mountains and we will end in Marrakesh. All along the way we visit souks, medinas, mosques and other important sites, led by an educated and informed English speaking guide. We’ll have yoga classes with Baxter and Melina, eat excellent and interesting food and immerse in the beauty, diversity and mystique of Morocco...
