Costa Rica

Costa Ricans (Ticos) use this term Pura Vida to say hello, to say goodbye, to say everything’s great, to say everything’s cool. However, it is not the words that reflect the true meaning of Pura Vida. Pura Vida is the way Ticos live. Not surprisingly, Costa Rica has been named one of the happiest countries in the world, mostly because its inhabitants don’t stress about things the way most foreigners do. Ticos have a very relaxed, simple way of looking at life. No worries, no fuss, no stress—pura vida to them means being thankful for what they have and not dwelling on the negative.

Although many people use the saying ‘pura vida’, until you’ve been to Costa Rica, you will not truly know what pura vida feels like. It’s an emotion, it’s an attitude, it’s happiness, and it’s a way of life. Once you’ve visited, you will understand the true meaning of pura vida. The World Database of Happiness ranks Costa Rica as the #1 happiest nation on earth out of 148countries!


This retreat again joins the 2 inspiring international yoga teachers – Filipa Veiga and Silvia Stojanovic. They will join their experience to make this retreat the most amazing adventure, both personally and emotionally, taking you into a deeper level of understanding the practice and its transformative essence.

Filipa Veiga

Born in Portugal, Filipa grew up in Macau, Asia. As a the mother of two girls and after studying Law and having been a journalist, she fully dedicated herself to yoga after moving back to Asia and living in Ubud, Bali. Being an authorized by KPJAYI, her yoga practice started more than 14 years ago.

In addition to the Ashtanga Yoga method, she also studies meditation and Ayurveda at the Vedic Institute, which teaches not only the asana technique but also how to maintain a healthy and balanced lifestyle.

Living between Bali and Portugal, the teacher dedicates her life to inspiring people and transforming lives through classes, workshops, yoga and Ayurveda retreats, and through her Yoga-me blog, a project that gave birth to her first book of success, which now enters the second edition. Presenter at the Bali Spirit Festival and ambassador of the Wanderlust Portugal since the 1st edition, she also brought to her birth country the Portugal Spirit Festival spreading her love around the yoga lifestyle.

Silvia Stojanovic

She’s an activebody at heart, native German, living in Portugal who would happily spend every day practicing yoga, surfing and spending time with her beloved son Keanu. She loves to cook for others and can’t think of anything better than spending all day in the kitchen with friends cooking a meal for them. She is a devoted student of yoga and mindfulness. Her practice has changed her life in infinite ways – most of all it has helped her feel more at home with herself and aligned her with the rest of the world.

Teaching is her life’s calling. After studying sports in Germany and completing her 500 hr teacher training she has now been teaching for 15 years. As a yoga educator, she’s led a few teacher trainings in Portugal. she’s skilled at motivating people of all ages to change their life and find their true purpose, making yoga feel accessible to beginners and Yogis of all levels and creating practices that are physically, mentally and emotionally transformative. While she loves practicing and teaching asana, the mechanics, anatomy, and the poetry of mindful movement, she is ultimately interested in the process of yoga and how it reveals a deeper understanding of who we are.
