The Lodge: El Sabanero Eco Lodge was built in 2004 using all local material. Construction time was about 18 months and it was opened in 2005 to cater to nature seekers giving them a home away from home. A private escape cloaked in serenity and embraced by natural beauty, a unique place for those with a passion for authentic experiences. The lodge is conveniently positioned just 10 minutes away from Hacienda Pinilla’s golf course and 15 minutes away from world-class surf beaches such as Avellanas, Negra, Tamarindo and Langosta!In 2012, Jamie Kalynuik, owner of Torontoyogamamas visited us for the first time and fell in love with El Sabanero as a Yoga retreat.
Being herself a certified prenatal and postnatal yoga instructor she welcomed the peace and serenity of El Sabanero.
The result: In 2015 we had over 180 days of Yoga teacher Training and Yoga retreats bookings.
Yoga transformed Amit´s life. It helped him get the balance he needs between his mind, body and soul. He chooses to practice yoga as a lifestyle both on and off the mat as it is the foundation of his everyday life. He believes yoga provides a consistent source of positive energy through all of life’s ups and downs, and he aspires to share his passion with others.
He moved to Costa Rica from Toronto to experience a simpler life, be closer to nature, and teach yoga for a living. He finds yoga teaching both uplifting and humbling experience as it pushes his limits and challenges him physically, mentally, and spiritually.
