LUXE Cowgirl Yoga™ Costa Rica

Women’s Yoga & Horseback Riding Retreat in Nosara, Costa Rica

Yeehaw, Namaste & Vámonos!

From horseback riding through melodic jungles to yoga on remote beaches, Luxe Cowgirl Yoga™ Costa Rica is your perfect tropical winter escape. Join us in idyllic Nosara, Costa Rica for a week-long retreat with our maravilloso ("marvelous") local partner Equisol to deepen your yoga practice, steady your mind, explore the magical horse-human connection, and discover the beauty and allure of Costa Rica.

NOTE: We're in the planning stages for the next Luxe Cowgirl Yoga™ Costa Rica retreat. Stay tuned for future dates in late 2019 and/or 2020. 

Yoga, Horses, & Beaches

Join fellow yoginis and riders of all experience levels for “laid-back luxury” at its finest. Luxe Cowgirl Yoga™ Costa Rica is a 7-night women’s retreat held in the breathtaking hills and remote beaches of Nosara (northwestern coast of Costa Rica). Thanks to our local partner Equisol, you’ll enjoy a private 150-acre ranch Finca Austria with extensive riding trails, crystal-clear rivers, ocean views, waterfalls, and transcendent peace.

Deepen your yoga practice, spend quality time with horses both in and out of the saddle (even some horseback swims), and nurture your mind, body, and soul as you immerse yourself in nature.

Stay in a luxurious villa with views of infinity pools stretching straight out to the ocean and jungle below. After three square meals of fresh tropical delights, and all the down dogs and horse nuzzles you can handle, kick up your heels and relax under a blanket of stars on the outdoor lounge decks as you listen to the symphony of howler monkeys.

Enjoy healthy, gourmet meals and fresh fruit cocktails prepared by our resident chef, along with 2-3 dinner outings to the finest local restaurants.

Meditation & Journaling

Set your intentions through a series of meditation and journaling exercises specifically designed for Cowgirl Yoginis.

  • Heavenly is an understatement when it comes to describing this retreat. Finca Austria was stunning, the riding trails were beyond scenic, and I met life-long friends.

    Nicole, Indiana

  • What a glorious treat. They've managed to strike the perfect balance between physical/spiritual stimulation and luxurious relaxation. I returned home with a renewed passion for my yoga practice, for horsemanship, and for travel in general.

    Talia, Vermont

  • I loved being paired one on one with a horse for 7 days, picking up his feet, stretching his neck, and watching him respond to me. Connecting with a gentle giant like that is life-changing — it allowed me to relax and enjoy the ride.

    Heidi, Washington DC

  • A perfect retreat. Leave your cares behind and get restored!

    Lynn, Tennessee

  • Euphoria is not a big enough sentiment to describe the feeling of taking in the beauty of Costa Rican beaches and jungles on horseback.

    Talia, Vermont

  • I’ve loved my time on this Costa Rica retreat so much that I’ve gone twice!


  • WOW! Yoga- horsemanship-bliss. I was so impressed I am booked for 2017 already!

    Lynn, Tennessee

  • Every need was met, from food (delicious, chef-prepared, locally-sourced fare), to transportation and planning extra activities. I didn't worry about a single thing from the second my plane touched down.
