I’ve only been to Manuel Antonio once before, and thought perhaps this was a perfect place to get our adventure started. Manuel Antonio is a national park and beach community on the Pacific Coast, which houses tropical forests, white and volcanic sand beaches, clear blue waters, and plenty of shopping, dining and lodging options. For Anna and I, a visit to one of the most beautiful beaches wouldn’t be complete without practicing Yoga on the beach.

I was the last guest to arrive at Enchanted Mountain Yoga Center late that evening to join our group of 15 yoga student teachers. Because I was last to arrive I took the taxi, which I am told was the best choice because taxis were small enough for the private dirt roads that take you away from the one paved road that is always full of traffic, horses, bicycles, and generally blocked by a carnival like atmosphere. Some of the guests had charted a van which remained on this highway for hours after their arrival. There are people selling cotton candy and toys to all the passengers stuck out there on the pavement all day, everyday.
If you feel any kind of pain, stress or uneasiness, while practicing yoga with your instructor or at an yoga retreat, immediately stop the exercise and consult your doctor.
