"I don't think I would have ever developed the love for yoga I have now if it hadn't been for Kelly and Chillasana.  Walking into my first yoga class 8 years ago I was so nervous- Kelly made it so welcoming and there my yoga practice grew every Tuesday and Thursday.  Kelly is an amazing instructor one of the best I have ever had in all my travels, and daily in my yoga classes I wish Kelly could be my instructor wherever I go. Do yourself a favor and get to one of Kelly's classes, or better yet do a retreat with surf and yoga combined, all in paradise. Believe me, you will not regret it!"

Becka Anderson

"I had an absolutely amazing week with Kelly as my yoga guide. She is very knowledgeable and has a beautiful energy about her. I had a blast surfing, paddle boarding and doing yoga. Everyone was very professional and helpful, easy to get along with and made planning my trip a breeze. I would highly recommend Chillasana if you want to have a relaxed and peaceful trip.  I learned SO much and was able to take home with me a lot of good habits and to really progress in my yoga practice. I stayed in Samara which was a great town, delicious food and friendly people. The beaches in Carrillo and Samara are lovely, natural and clean. Treat yourself!"

“Amazing tour and surf lesson!

Chillasana was absolutely great!  My family and I had an amazing time learning how to surf with Nelson, he was incredibly nice, a great instructor and most importantly he cared about our safety.  We also had the opportunity to go on the kayak and S.U.P tour to the mangroves.  We absolutely loved it, our guides were very organized; they provided us with all of the equipment and even brought snacks and drinks for everyone!  We also learned a lot of new and interesting things about the mangroves, definitely a tour that we recommend.  Overall, Chillasana and their guides made our trip to Costa Rica wonderful."

Julia Song

“I loved Kelly's yoga practice, spirit and energy at Hotel Punta Islita.  The embodiment of Costa Rica living and just the escape I was looking for.  Highly recommend and will return to Samara for all their offerings!”

“Chillasana Surf was amazing!!  We had a large group with no experience and John, Elder and Marcello were kind, supportive fun and amazing instructors- turned all of us into converts... not only did they keep us safe, they made the days fun and successful for all of us... We Will Be Back.

5 Huge stars⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐”

“Kelly is a unique and gifted teacher and yogi!  She is so attuned to each student and really crafts her class to what will most benefit each participant.  Made a huge difference in our trip and a great opener of the way to yoga and deeper awareness.  Don't miss out!”

Moshe Rudin

“Wonderful! John and Kelly are so nice thank you so much for some of the finest moments of my life!  If there is anywhere in the world as good as this let me know.  Friendly and fun what more can one ask for?  Ending the day doing Yoga at sunset is a great experience.  John is a great teacher he makes learning to surf a blast.  I highly recommend this beautiful paradise in sunny Costa Rica!
Pura Vida.”
