Trimmed by a creek and shrouded by Costa Rica’s dense tropical forest, the spacious al-fresco Yoga Deck prompts full communion with nature. Fragrant earth, billowing wind, fluttering candles, and streaming water fully engage the senses and enliven the spirit.

Private yoga classes are available but must be pre-scheduled with the reservations department. El Silencio Lodge & Spa can also host specialized Yoga Retreats. Yoga instructors are encouraged to organize their own groups, yoga enthusiasts can ask us to create a fully customized event.
