Is Pura Vida really paradise?
If you like a blast of warm weather, sun & fun in February, to be surrounded by gorgeous tropical plants and flowers, eat healthy, fresh and delicious food, do daily yoga and compassionately explore the best of you, then yes it is.
Learn more about Pura Vida and the Room Accommodations that will determine your rate for the retreat. Please note that as of 12/1/17 the spa is filling, and the following room types are sold out: Prana, Lila, Zendo, Vista and possibly Pagoda. Annie is holding a block of gorgeous rooms, but as time passes, there will be fewer. Book now!
Room, meals, pickup at the San Jose airport, and programming with Annie (2 to 3, 1.5 to 2 hour sessions per day).
What's not included? Airfare, add-ons like massage and bodywork, other activities at Pura Vida (they do excursions).
Annie B. Kay is an integrative dietitian, yoga therapist, plant alchemist, award-winning author, and Lead Nutritionist at Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health, the largest yoga center in the North America.
How much $ and when?
A deposit of $400 will hold your space, and the remainder is due on 12/1/2017. After that date, the entire amount will be due (if you leave a deposit here, Annie will be in touch to get you settled into the retreat so long as there is space). If you leave a deposit here and the retreat is sold out, 100% of your deposit will be returned to you. The retreat will run from February 17th to February 22nd, 2018.
What happens next?
When you click on any of the buttons on this page to let Annie know you'd like to reserve a space, you will be taken to a checkout page to create your account and make your deposit (via paypal). Once your deposit is made you will be taken to a thank you page with a small reservation form where you can select your room and other preferences. Annie will email you to complete your registration.
If you would rather pay by check or chat with Annie before registering, email her (annie(at)anniebkay.com) and she'll answer any questions you have and send along the registration form and detailed schedule of the retreat.
Annie has reserved a selection of rooms, which are first-come, first served, so book early (the earlier we book, the more we can reshuffle our rooms based on preference).
If you do not have a passport, getting started on the process of having a current one is excellent to begin sooner rather than later. You can find out more about getting a U.S. Passport here.
No refunds for cancellations after 12/1/2017 unless we can find a replacement for you, in which case we will give you a refund minus $75. Pure Vida only provides refunds within 30 days if people can't get into the San Jose airport, so please let Annie know as soon as possible if you register then are unable to attend.
Everything about this place is purely magical. The grounds are impeccable featuring fruit, herbs and flowers. The food is cooked with love and extremely delicious. The studios offer breathtaking views. The staff is so friendly and knowledgable. It was a retreat of a life time!-Alyssa Z, Columbus, OH
