"Great, but some things can be fixed "

Loved the location, liked how the learning was dynamic and we could choose what we wanted to learn.

"Fantastic experience "

I went into this training with no intention of teaching yoga and have come out of it trying to figure out a way to encorporate it into my life! It was a really great experience and builds your confidence enormously. It's a fairly intense programme, but is a nice mix of asana and theory of yoga (which is a lot more interesting than it sounds!). The chanting was great too and we had lots of opportunities to teach classes to our fellow students and the public. Cheryl, Julie and Tamara are all great teachers and are very inspiring. I would most definitely recommend this training to anyone who's looking for a rounded 200hr YTT course.

"Incredible experience from start to finish"

I loved absolutely everything about this experience. So well organized, the best vegetarian food you have ever tasted, inspiring and talented teachers and staff, variety of yoga classes where you are learning something new everyday, many other interesting activities to choose from, super strong family and tight community environment. I felt so happy and at peace there. I feel so grateful I got to experience it. Truly unforgettable memories. Thank you!!!!

Big thanks to the super host Tamara. She is such a grounded and knowledgeable yoga teacher, and most importantly, an amazing cook(I miss the food of Casa de Sol so much)!!

Also I want to thank her for creating this place filled with good vibes, cool people, fun and helpful staff; and of course, cute puppies and kitties!!

I had an amazing time during my stay, thank you, Casa del Sol for the wonderful experience!!

"Relaxing but Stimulating"

It was a very calm and relaxing environment with great staff while also rejuvenating for the body with good food, yoga, surfing and an amazing breath workshop.

"Casa Del Sol is a dream"

Casa Del Sol is an oasis, tucked away from the party town reputation Montanita holds in the cutest little neighborhood next to the point. My favorite moments from Casa was the sound of the crashing waves that rolled over you while deep in your yoga practice; and also talking to the incredible souls that were either in the retreat or just passerby's in the hostel. Tamara and her staff were outstanding and I will never be able to rave enough.

"This place is Amazing!"

If you like yoga and the beach, then this yoga retreat is for you! Tamara and Michelle were great yoga teachers providing a mix of vinyasa and yin classes throughout the week. Pablo was the most fun and patient surf instructor I've ever had, he's also got amazing stories to share and was fun to have around Casa del Sol. Also, the food was amazing, thanks to Tamara for all the creative vegan/veg meals and thanks to Juanito for our deciduous breakfast everyday. Jackson, the bartender and story teller was always there to assist and we all had a good time thanks to his hospitality. From the hammocks, to the sunsets, to the amazing people I met, I liked it all. I highly recommend booking a yoga retreat at Casa del Sol!

Everything was so amazing, it's hard to know where to begin! The location, the accommodations, the food, the yoga, the community of was all beyond what I had expected. I would not have changed a single thing about this retreat...other than having to come home from it!

"Amazing Experience "

Myself and two friends attended the May 2017 yoga retreat and it was more than we could have ever expected! The staff, accommodation and food were amazing! A road from the ocean and 10 minutes from the country side jungle, it was the perfect location. Tamara, Jackson, and Andres were all so helpful & made the trip so enjoyable.

Mir hat alles gefallen, der Ort, der Yogaraum, die abwechslungsreichen Yogastunden, die lieben und sehr guten YogaleherInnen (hier nicht auseählbar aber sehr kompetent auch die liebe Katy Shea und Jackson Smelzer) Das Essen war gut und die gesamte Atmosphäre im Cada del Sol einfach herzlich. Ich habe mich so wohl gefühlt, dass ich am liebsten nicht abgereist wäre. Es war sicherlich nicht mein letzter Besuch.

I don't think I could ever put into words what a wonderful experience I had doing a yoga/surf retreat at Casa del Sol! Tamara, the staff, my fellow yogis were all amazing. The food was delicious, the location was great, and I have so many memories from my time there that I will cherish forever! Thank you, Casa del Sol!
