Costa Rica Eco Adventure Yoga Retreat – February 2025


Soak up the breathtaking beauty of Costa Rica’s Alajuela district at Lost ‘n Found Yoga’s six-night yoga retreat this coming February, 2025. Ground yourself in Costa Rica’s unrivaled biodiversity while being lifted to new heights in the glorious Monteverde Cloud Forest. Our venue, The Majestic Lodge Retreat, is located in the heart of Costa Rica’s tropical mountain forests, nestled in amongst waterfalls and volcanic trails. Soulful yoga classes, a deep immersion in nature, and a home away from home chosen for its unbuttoned comfort and eco-chic attitude will leave a lasting impression.

Our intention is to foster the spirit of adventure and awake the inner explorer while holding ample space for deep contemplation and inner quietude. We can’t wait to share this incredible experience with you!

The Retreat

Awaken to an enlivening, all level movement practice before enjoying a healthy and satisfying meal featuring local produce. The day will conclude with an offering of restorative, yin or nidra. The space in between is your opportunity to explore the best that Costa Rica has to offer. Culture, adventure and a deep connection to the natural world are yours to discover.

Nestled in the mountainous area of La Fortuna, our eco-lodge is a stone’s throw from some of the most breathtaking landmarks and unforgettable experiences in Costa Rica. Tranquility is at your doorstep with the opportunity to bask in the natural pool of La Fortuna Waterfall, hike the trails of Arenal Volcano or take a gentle Safari Float down the Penas Blancas River. If your inner thrill-seeker is looking for a dose of adrenaline, you can soar through the air on ziplines in the Monteverde Cloud Forest, white water raft along the Balsa river or rappel into one of the area’s stunning canyons. The opportunities to come alive are endless.

Your Retreat Leader: Lacey Mayes

Lacey was originally drawn to the practice of Yoga as a means to process grief. Yoga quickly became a lifestyle, helping her heal, reconnect with herself, and feel more present in her life. Today, she is honoured to share these transformative practices with others.

Lacey knows first-hand the benefits of Yoga and she leads with the belief that Yoga should be welcoming and accessible to every body. Her students are encouraged to leave their preconceived notions of what yoga “should” look like at the door so they may explore their own potential while having fun. You can expect to leave feeling uplifted and empowered.

Lacey is a lifelong learner who became a 200-hour certified teacher in 2017. She has gone on to take additional training in creative cueing, hands on assists and adjustments, yoga philosophy, meditation, restorative yoga and yoga nidra.

These excursions are an integral part of the experience of travelling to Costa Rica, and the itinerary provides ample opportunity to experience many of them. We encourage you to challenge yourself to step out of your comfort zone to try something new and adventurous… you will come home with memories, stories and shared experiences with your fellow retreat participants that will last a lifetime!
