About the kitchen
Gaia Gourmet Cuisine provides plenty of protein by using legumes, seeds and nuts, artisan cheeses, and eggs from free-ranging chickens. They only use whole grains and natural sweeteners. With an ever-expanding orchard of over 300 various tropical fruit trees, our freshly picked organic fruits also make great complements to your dining experience. Overall, this will produce a more lively healthy body and mind and is the most environmentally friendly diet.
We always do our best to accommodate food allergies. We can omit certain items from dishes, such as cheese, dairy, and nuts. We cannot guarantee a completely gluten-free or nut-free environment. Persons with serious food allergies such as Celiac's Disease or those on a 100% raw food diet should not attend a retreat. We must know of all serious food issues at least three weeks prior to arrival. Bring an open mind and allow your taste buds to savor this unique culinary adventure!
Visiting The Sanctuary at Two Rivers is nothing short of an out-of-this-world magical experience. By attending a Yoga Retreat or Yoga Teacher Training, you are consciously investing into your own personal growth and transformation portfolio, and this return on investment is priceless! Chasing lizards, scoping birds, photographing flowers, hugging a tree, howling at the moon, and dipping under waterfalls, is an interesting juxtaposition to your usual day-to-day routine.

Surfing, Body Surfing, and Beach-combing
Costa Rica is known as one of the world's premier surfing destinations. There are several good surfing spots very close to The Sanctuary. A 15 minute taxi ride will get you to the Montezuma breaks near Playa Grande and 30 minutes to Playa Carmen/Mal Pais/Santa Teresa where we are happy to arrange a lesson or board rental for you with top notch instructors. You can stroll down the hill to our local beach at Rio Lajas or walk another 10 minutes down the beach to Los Cedros and watch the surfers tear it up when the break is going off.
Rio Lajas - high tide / south swell / right point break. On good days it runs a few hundred meters.
Los Cedros - high tide only lefty point break, best when there is a south swell but always fun.
Playa Grande Montezuma - a mid/high tide spot with a consistent wave; best when there's a south swell.
Mal Pais-Playa Carmen - Santa Teresa areas are known for good constant surf and is only a 25-35 minute taxi/shuttle away.
