Nestled into lush tropical gardens on a slope above Santa Teresa Costa Rica, Hotel Horizon looks out to the vast horizon of the pacific ocean. From here we can see, hear, smell and feel the presence of the big blue from dusk till dawn, dawn till dusk. This energy is our blessed companion, day and night. The highest point of the hotel is our wooden yoga deck, from where you look down to the beaches and surf of Santa Teresa and Mal Pais. Here we can look inwards, if we only want, beyond all that, over the sea of thoughts, into the clarity of the horizon.
Santa Teresa - Malpais are places for the celebration of life. Here you can appreciate each and every moment of being surrounded by this astonishing nature and the laid-back vibe of the surf villages.
Santa Teresa is known as a surfing temple for it's consistent waves and it's long beach breaks. On the beaches of Santa Teresa and the neighboring community of Mal Pais, you are a Robinson Crusoe on the wild beach, thanks to the building restrictions of Costa Rica.

About lead trainer, Rebecca Mayne:
Rebecca earned her B.A. in Contemplative Psychology and Yoga Studies, which included about 1000 hours of teacher training. She went on to receive her 200 Hour Yoga Alliance Certification through The Shambhava School of Yoga, during which program she lived a traditional yogic lifestyle at Shoshoni Ashram. Since then, she has studied Inner Yoga™, Principle Based Partner Yoga™, Prenatal, Warriors at Ease™, YogaEd, and iRest® Yoga Nidra with Richard Miller. Most recently, she received her 500Hr Yoga Alliance Certification through Sivananda School of Yoga. She has sought out certifications to deepen her practice and teaching because she loves tailoring classes to students' needs and goals. Rebecca is an E-RYT, having over 3,000 hours of teaching experience, which she feels has been some of her greatest study, second to the yoga of being a mother. When not teaching in the studio or retreat setting, Rebecca designs and teaches corporate yoga wellness programs for both start-up and international companies. Other than her passion for yoga, Rebecca's an outdoor enthusiast of many sorts, and is an in-love mother to 3 year-old boy.

”Rebecca is an extraordinary yoga teacher. Her personal practice is passionate, and she brings that passion, skill level, intelligence and creativity to every class she teaches. She is incredibly positive and reassuring to all students–from the novice to the advanced yogi. She has never taught the same class twice–always creative, different, fresh and intelligent. You can advance and build your practice in Rebecca’s classes and you are never ever bored. Rebecca is a special teacher and we are lucky to spend time on the mat with her.”~ Betsy J. from Precor Fitness
