Yoga Retreat

Practice Yoga, Change Your Life, Manifest Your Dreams

Ser La Luz is a Holistic Mountain Costa Rica Yoga Retreat center.  At Ser La Luz, we practice yoga because it makes us happier, healthier and with less stress. It’s that simple and easy.

While many people have their own reasons to develop a practice, we have found one thing to be true. People are often looking to either unwind and destress or answer important life questions. Or a combination of both.  We practice for a combination of both.

Yoga Retreat 1

We believe that the answers to life’s questions come from a deep place of stillness. Your life will change when you do yoga.  Doors open and the impossible becomes possible.  This belief not only helped us to find each other, it also helped us find our way to Costa Rica and build Ser La Luz.

This can only happen when one practices yoga.


As an an international center for learning and transformation, Ser La Luz celebrates yoga in its many forms and practices.

Whether it’s a yoga class or a yoga retreat, you will be guaranteed to find a high degree of knowledge, creativity, integrity and professionalism. At Ser La Luz we strive to make it utterly effortless for you to experience happiness and self-realization, and carry them home to share with others.

Yoga Retreat 2

If you are looking for a dedicated space for an authentic practice, look no further. Starting from the morning silence, our singing bowls, to the nightly blessings. Ser La Luz captures the essence of a learning center aligned with some of the oldest traditions and rituals. Ed received his training from the Baptist yoga family.

What makes Ser La Luz a superior Costa Rica yoga retreat center are the many spaces you can encounter throughout the property: our grand room, the 80 ft terrace, our comfortable rancho and the gardens.


Surrounded by a lush countryside and the sounds of the creak in the valley below plus the many flocks of birds flying overhead, our terrace is a stunning place to practice for a world class experience.

With the breathtaking view of the active Poas Volcano from anywhere on our property, you feel the calming and yet energetic energies around us.  There is no better place to unplug and connect than Ser La Luz.  Poas Volcano is just over 8,000 ft high and we are located at 4,800 ft elevation.  As you can see, we are located a bit more than halfway up the side of the volcano.

For those of you who are able to sense energies, it truly is amazing here.  It is one reason our WiFi is limited to where it is.  We actually have issues with signal strength and Michael feels it’s because of the energy of the magma flowing beneath us. No need to worry about lava or ash coming from Poas.  It’s latest eruption cycle gave us some amazing views but no lava or ash in our direction.


As a world famous Costa Rica yoga retreat center, we are proud to host a wide choice of programs.  Programs ranging from blissful yoga retreats to deeply transformational 1-on-1 with some of most world-renowned yoga teachers from around the world. Whether it’s to heal, rest, restore, connect to the divine, or learn, Ser La Luz will provide a unique and enriching experience. Through the power of yoga, meditation and holistic eating, we create a community to feel in connection with everyone, from all parts of the world.
