Anamaya yoga retreat center is located in Montezuma, in the Southern Nicoya Peninsula. It overlooks the Gulf of Nicoya and the Pacific Ocean, with 270 degree views.
It’s located next to one of Costa Rica’s most popular waterfalls, Montezuma Falls, and it has a private path to get to the top of the falls, where there’s a rope swing, and the most adventurous tourists of Montezuma come here to jump into the very large and deep pool and admire the surrounding rainforest.
Anamaya runs several yoga teacher trainings each year, usually four weeks long, and since opening in December of 2009, has become one of the world’s most popular yoga centers. All of its yoga teacher trainings sell out early.
Between teacher trainings, a variety of week long retreats are held, with a variety of teachers from all over the planet travelling here to teach their favorite styles.
Anamaya also offers Zumba classes, aerial silk classes and retreats, and a variety of other types of programs. It offers organic food, with a menu specifically designed to be as healthy as possible, with a specific focus on “superfoods.” The restaurant is occasionally open the public. Call 2642-1289 and ask early in the day if you can sit in. There’s no menu, but the food is certain to be delicious.
The resort’s salt-water infinity edge pool is perhaps the most spectacular feature of Anamaya, and thousands of people have had their photo taken there. It’s one of those things that has to be seen to be believed.
