SANTA TERESA, COSTA RICA
Before you book that yoga retreat in Bali, check out the sprawling forests and unrivalled coastline of Costa Rica. The beach town of Santa Teresa has already made a name for itself as a yogi hub, so pencil in a vinyasa class under the trees before hitting the surf and fuelling up at an organic cafe.
Unwind in a beachside villa at Florblanca ( florblanca.com) and practise your backbends in the open-air studio. To pick up the pace, ask the hotel to organise a horseback ride through the jungle or test out the famous zip lines.
Mix yoga with guided surf sessions on a Vajra Sol Yoga retreat (vajrasoltravel.com). Perfect for beginners, it bookends each day with a little Savasana and leaves you plenty of free time to roam the gardens.
