A Practical Yogic Lifestyle – Personalized Diet, Nutrition, Health, Balance, Vitality, Relationships, Joy and Happiness
November 28 to December 5, 2020
Light On Kundalini is delighted to invite you to our 2020 Costa Rica Retreat lead by Karuna, an Academy Member of the Kundalini Research Institute.
Join us for a week of deep spiritual exploration in the serene and beautiful surrounds of the Blue Spirit Yoga and Meditation Retreat Center in Nosara, Costa Rica. Blue Spirit has been named a Yoga Journal Best Yoga Escape 2017.
We will be breaking down the walls of resistance by going deeper into peace and tranquility through meditation. Inviting new relationships into your life or restoring old relationships into abundance with yourself, your partner, your family. Great for couples.
Finding the balance between where you think you have done enough and going past the false WALLS that keep us in FEAR, we want to welcome the new beginnings everyday!
WE have all created these imaginary walls that “force quit” us before we break through! Yet we have to allow the tenderness to do so and acknowledge the walls which we have built around ourselves. We all live in a Sanctuary of Peace!
We need to ask the question daily: “can I press through and break down the WALLS?” The answer is clearly YES!
On this retreat we will offer you tools to continually vibrate the frequencies that will assist you in limitless flow. You will relish these times we spend on the beach, floating in the natural waters and feeling the digestive juices of compassion.
Understanding that Kundalini Yoga and meditation along with Rebirthings and Gong workshop work quickly to rejuvenate, regenerate and reorganize us back to our original blue print, our authentic voice: our sound current, our HEART which is the Truest ART of ALL!
The week will include in-depth exploration of the technology of Kundalini Yoga for re-rooting, rest and restoration of the Complete Self from the stresses of daily life. You’ll develop a fulfilling everyday discipline, creating devotional practice with Sadhana at the ambrosial hour, meditation and chanting, and conscious walking on the ocean front, experiencing deep immersion into the Soul!
For convenience and maximum benefit, sessions include emphases for both relative beginners and seasoned practitioners.
Elements will include principles of meditation with yoga asana, breath work and swimming.
Karuna will also offer coaching concerning lifestyle (nutrition, exercise, wellness) and well-being and happiness.
Our daily experience will include:
- Sunrise Sadhana overlooking the ocean as the day dawns
- Refreshing fruits and juices, and a bountiful breakfast
- Morning Workshop with Karuna
- Fresh and nurturing lunch
- Afternoon Workshop with Karuna
- Time to explore Costa Rica or relax at the resort

Testimonials from our retreat
The lush surroundings, beautiful private beach, outstanding healthy cuisine and tranquil setting makes Blue Spirit the perfect place to recharge and reset. It’s my favourite place on the planet when combined with Karuna’s deep teachings and guidance. I leave refreshed knowing I’ve done lots of work on yourself with lasting benefits. A truly transformational experience!
~Steve from Vancouver, Canada
I was encouraged to attend the Costa Rica Kundalini Yoga retreat with Karuna after my partner came back from this retreat the year before. The transformation that I witnessed in my partner, the beauty and glow, and brightness that wasn’t explainable is what got me to start my Kundalini practice in the first place. So fast forward a year, and I find myself very excited about this retreat. A week long, soul searching, challenging, amazing, transformative kundalini yoga experience was just what I needed. Life happens… to all of us… I lost my mom about a month before this retreat. Karuna’s expertise and guidance helped me process and let go of things that I didn’t need to carry. It was the most wonderful experience. Karuna is so miraculous; she is able to tap in so deeply, that she not only makes your individual experience special, but the culture she creates with the group truly makes for a remarkable experience and elevation of mind, body, and soul. All of this, plus the beauty and lush surroundings, and highly nutritious, amazing food of the Blue Spirit Resort in Costa Rica couldn’t be a better combination. What a way to end the year and reset for what’s next! Sat Nam! See you next year!

Teg Ranjeet 2019:
Where to start? Rock bottom? I would like to say that’s where I was, but one can keep falling and falling. Addiction in many forms ravaged my body, emotions, mind, and soul. Drugs, over eating, online shopping, obsessive screen time, and sensual pleasure ruled my life, did I even exist? I had to stop falling. I signed up for this retreat the very last day, through a stroke of grace. After the long trip to Blue Spirit, the walls and boundaries I created to survive my deep pain began to weaken and crumble. Through Karuna’s powerful instruction and gentle guidance of Yogi Bhajan’s teachings, I began to peek at the seat of serenity in my soul. Through the cleansing of the warm, salty, wavy, alive oceans near the resort, my heart began to beat a little lighter and happier. Through the fresh, prana-rich meals prepared by the wonderful staff, I began to feel replenished. And finally, and most important to me, through shared experience with fellow retreat students, I began to be lifted up by their powerful love, support, and guidance, reminding me that we are not alone, and we share the same feelings of pain, addiction, and loneliness created by boundaries and walls we create to shelter our hearts. A day did not pass where my heart didn’t weep at least once, and much more often than that, emptying me completely so that I may filled up again with light instead of darkness. This retreat can help you through whatever you are dealing with, and fill you up again. Wahe Guru. Sat Nam.
