Dreamsea Costa Rica - Seven Signs You're In Need Of A Surf & Yoga Getaway!

Are you struggling with headaches? Feeling fatigued throughout the day? Lacking enthusiasm in the mornings?


These may be signs that your body is in serious need of a surf and yoga getaway. Retreats help us reset our minds, rejuvenate our routines and add some fun back into our life. And let’s be honest, most of us could use a lot more of that. If you can relate to any of the seven symptoms below, your body may be secretly crying out for a break.

1. Work Feels More Like Home Than Your Actual Home Does


If you’re heating up dinner at the office, checking emails in bed and you see your boss more than your friends, you definitely need a break from reality. Not taking time from stressful routines can make you more prone to falling ill, mess up your digestive system and even cause you to age faster. Instead of buying expensive creams and overloading on Vitamin C, you can book a ticket to a tropical paradise in Costa Rica and give your body a much-needed reset. Dreamsea Costa Rica’s Yoga and Surf Glamping retreat is the perfect way to disconnect from life’s stresses and get back in the flow of nature. Each morning you’ll wake up to the sound of Howler monkeys swinging from the trees outside your glamping tent, welcome the sun with a round of yoga or a sunrise surf, and get ready to head out for a full of day of catching waves and beach-lounging with your new friends. Finally, you’ll close it out with a final sunset yoga session on the beach overlooking the Tamarindo sunset. What can be more relaxing than that?

2. The Idea Of Planning A Full Vacation Sounds More Stressful Than Going To Work


Vacations are meant to assist you in getting away from responsibilities, not create more of them. For those of us who are too overwhelmed to think about scouring booking sites or figuring out which excursions we should do, just book a getaway that does all the planning for you. From breakfast to varied social events, Dreamsea Costa Rica provides an itinerary to make sure you get the full Pura Vida experience that Costa Rica is known for. Each day offers a new activity you can join in on, like waterfall hikes, soccer, salsa lessons and trips to other nearby beaches like Playa Avellanas, which has its own resident pig. It’s the ultimate break, all you need to do is reserve your spot and book a flight.

3. The Winter Months Have Left You In Some Serious Need Of Vitamin D


If you live in a place that experiences winter, you probably know that seasonal depression is very real. Months of grey skies, early sunsets and extra time spent indoors can leaving you feeling a bit blah. Vitamin D, fittingly referred to as the sunshine vitamin, is not only important for emotional regularity, but can lead to fatigue, weak bones, cardiovascular diseases and a compromised immune system (hello, flu). The best way to avoid these symptoms is to get a healthy dose of sunshine, which you’ll obviously get plenty of while riding the waves into the beach and stretching out for a sundown yoga session.

4. Your Instagram Is Starting To Look Like A Shrine To Your Pet


We all like to scroll through cute and funny pet pics, but if eight out of ten of your last IG posts are featuring your furry friend, it might be time to get out of the house. Tamarindo is the perfect backdrop to catch some envy-worthy photos – the eco-friendly glamping tents in the middle of the jungle, the community mango tree platform in the center of camp, sunsets over the ocean, waves for all levels of surfing, and a camp full of cool new friends from around the world. The best part? You don’t even need to bring your camera. With photographers on staff, all of your moments are captured in high quality, professional photos that will help freeze those fun, adventuring-seeking experiences in time forever.

5. You're Lacking Friends Who Have The Same Desire To Travel


We are all familiar with the excuses: I don’t have enough money, I can’t get the time off work, I just can’t commit to that right now. Traveling with friends is cool, but sometimes it can be a pain to get them on board. That’s probably why so many people who end up at Dreamsea Costa Rica arrive on their own. Traveling solo can feel intimidating and maybe even sound a bit lonely, but with a full camp nearly all year long, you’ll very rarely spend any time by yourself; unless you want to, of course. In that case, just hike out to the monkey tree, take the top tier of the mango treehouse, or snuggle into one of the many hammocks located throughout camp. Most people who’ve made their way through Dreamsea Costa Rica say that the best part of their experience is making so many new life-long friends from around the world. Many even go on to travel together in future trips.

6. You Have Aspirations To Live A Healthier Lifestyle


It helps if you build some strength in your arms and core before hopping on a board, but it isn’t necessary. Surfing is an exercise routine that feels way too fun to be a workout. You’re constantly working your arms and shoulders to paddle out and strengthening your core and back to lift your body off the board. Don’t be surprised if you notice some increased definition after just a few full days in the water. You’ll also get plenty of opportunities to loosen up those muscles during the twice-daily yoga or the occasional free lessons in surf massage. If you do want to get some practice in before heading out to Dreamsea, you can search “surf workouts” on YouTube and find plenty of free exercises to get your body in surf shape. The daily Surf and Yoga paired with the locally sourced and healthy food options both in camp and around town, will certainly have you feeling a boost of health, physique, and happiness in no time.

 

7. You've Never Tried Surfing Or Yoga


Not to sound like your parents, but you will never know if you like something unless you try it. Many people have walked into Dreamsea Costa Rica never having put a foot on a surf board or yoga mat and ultimately end up leaving with new life-long hobbies. Plus, mastering new skills gives us an obvious kick of endorphins and other feel-good hormones. Who can say no to that? You’ll be camping alongside your surf and yoga instructors too, so you’ll learn plenty of new tips over meals, mango tree conversations, beers and during the nightly surf and yoga tips. Who knows, you might find your new calling in life.

If you haven’t already made up your mind to book your Surf & Yoga getaway, check out our Instagram and start visualizing what life could be like at Dreamsea Costa Rica. On the other hand, if you’re already hooked, reserve your spot today!

Dreamsea Costa Rica - Practicing Mindfulness!

With so many distractions in our day to day lives, coming to Dreamsea Costa Rica can help you take a step back and slow things down.


Mindfulness is an important practice at Dreamsea Surf Camp of Costa Rica that is exercised through meditation,surfing, yoga, and positive change meetings. What exactly is mindfulness? Being mindful is being aware of how your impact affects the environment around you. It is a heightened state of focus on the present moment, your thoughts, and physical existence in itself.

In a world so heavily influenced by technology, we are often and easily lost within a screen instead of what is right in front of us.


With constantly checking our phones and receiving notifications, the ability to hold our focus on something is challenged. Your mind is a muscle and you can practice mindfulness just like you can in exercising your body for better health and performance. Not only can practicing mindfulness improve your attention span, it can allow you to have a better quality of life, improved focus and decreased stress and anxiety. You can be aware when negative thoughts enter your mind and change them to positive ones. If you are getting frustrated with learning something, like surfing, you can become aware of your frustration, take a deep breath, refocus, and put that energy instead into your surfing.

The wonderful thing about mindfulness is that it can be practiced anywhere. Instead of jumping to your phone as soon as it rings you can pause before answering it. You can observe your breathing, walk mindfully, eat mindfully, surf mindfully. By meditating and becoming aware of your thoughts and movements you can practice a higher level of concentration. It helps you monitor your thoughts and attention more mindfully. Positive change meetings allow for anyone to speak and share their thoughts on how to create a better world within the Dreamsea community. Whether it is using less water, reducing your plastic use or learning to love yourself, there is always an energy of focus on improving yourself and the world around you.

Dreamsea Costa Rica is a special place because of its ability to bring together such a large amount of travelers from so many different parts of the world. 


 Heightened mindfulness creates and illuminates empathy, which is an important dynamic in the togetherness of a community. Being able to understand and put yourself in someone else’s shoes allows you to see from different perspectives and ultimately grow from that point of view. Mindfulness is living in the present and recognizing the beauty that is all around you. Whether that’s surfing the waves, practicing yoga, chasing waterfalls, watching sunsets, or creating new friendships, mindfulness remains at the foundation of these acts and Dreamsea Surf Camp of Costa Rica.
