An overall incredible place. I cannot put into words how much I love and appreciate the classes and dances at Danyasa. It is yoga in a way I have not experienced before and they accommodate all levels, so don't be intimidated- whether it is your first class or you have practiced for some time, you will gain! I have been in town for the past month and am very grateful to have participated in classes, moon celebrations, and workshops. I am so much more in touch with my body and have learned so much. If you are seeking a mental break, internal growth, or to just practice yoga in the jungle, Danyasa is the spot. Magical!

I had an amazing time. Impossible to describe. Everything was nice, from the check in to check out. The staffs are very friendly, the rooms are stunning, the yoga classes are perfect (beyond my expectation), the breakfast is delicious, the swimming pool is o funny. Serious...if I could, I would stay the whole year just enjoying the place and the amazing atmosphere. Thank you all so so much for the time I spent . Hope to see you all soon. Pura vida!!!

Allow yourself the opportunity to come into an energy center within yourself given the support of the conscious staff in a conscious setting. Danyasa offers a schedule of mindful activities each week led by incredible practitioners. Healthy breakfast options are nourishing to mind and body as prepared by caring locals. Habitation details are fully considered, down to fragrant local shampoos and conditioners. Public areas and the pool are welcoming, comfortable, and exceedingly clean/insect free. The support staff are readily accessible and infused with divine presence and energy. For traverses in the journey, this is a replenishing pit stop that cannot be missed.

Perfect place to rest and recover after my Chirippo summit hike. I loved the design and lay out of the shipping container rooms. I enjoyed relaxing by the pool and in the common spaces. A healthy breakfast was included and it was delicious. The two yoga classes were exactly what I needed to help recover after the two long days of hiking. Thank you Danyasa staff and instructors for their care and attention to ensure a memorable stay!

Danyasa definitely has something special to offer. You won't even feel like you're in a shipping container, they have been thoughtfully remodeled to be almost like upscale accommodation. The air conditioning keeps them fresh. the common area is super nice as well as the pool - and so close to everything.

I don’t often leave reviews but this little yoga retreat/ hotel was amazing! Such a nice and friendly staff, really cool rooms with A/C and the features you could need. Great pool to cool off too! Located 30 minutes from Diamante, 15 minutes from Nauyaca and 2 minute walk to the beach! They also offer yoga classes as well. Would stay here again and recommend to anyone. Cheers!

This place was awesome. Cool vibe. Great staff. Incredible build. Shipping containers, yoga studio, air conditioning. Was very impressed and plan on returning. Right around the corner from a great surf break.

My experience in Danyasa has nurtured my relationship with my own body & all aspects of myself. Through movement, Danyasa has encouraged me to take initial steps into a path of self discovery, stepping into my core and personal power, whilst getting very clear on what it is I am calling in. I have found new ways to move, releasing regressed traumas and freeing my body, whilst opening my heart. I continue learning the importance of nurturing this delicate and precious relationship with Self; finding self-acceptance, self-honoring, self-love... whilst embracing my shadow, shining my light, and cherishing the unknown.

This place taught me to truly love myself, to express myself in more ways I could. It taught me more patience, self worth, stregth, alignment, confidence in my life's path. It gave me a place to truly let out my true nature and live fully in the moment while being in the most beautiful environment there could be with beautiful souls surrounding. It helped me grow more and it will always be a home to go back to. It has a big place in my life and heart. Thank you

Danyasa is the perfect place for Yoga, coincidence, transformation, growth, love and friendship. You are surrounded by the beautiful nature and the wonderful people of Dominical. The Danyasa team are lovers of life and creator of happinez. Nicole is a teacher of wonderful lessons and a teacher who touch your soul. The whole team make my visit to a wonderful experience. I will be forever grateful.

Loving the beauty and tranquility of Danyasa! In gratitude for this space to relax and connect to my body, mind, heart and soul.
Jacqueline, June 2017
Paradise on earth. Stayed for almost 2 weeks. I cant thank Sofiah, Brendan and all the wonderful team enough. I felt at home and happier than ever. After a week I left for a short trip and after staying away for a night I felt like I had to go back... I was already missing them so I delayed my flight and stayed longer. I am so grateful and hold a beautiful big space for the Danyasa family in my heart.
Mimi, May 2017
Great studio with the most amazing sounds of nature <3 I had the pleasure of taking a class with Anne and one with Amanda and loved them, as a yoga instructor it's such a privilege to attend classes especially with instructors that teach from the heart =) In Amanda's class we were offered to take a moon card at the beginning of the class and then read about it which was really special ! I also loved the bamboo shop with a great selection of yoga gear and goodies ! If you're in town, check this studio out

I had such an amazing experience at Danyasa. The people in Dominical were very friendly, the space was beautiful, safe, and comfortable. My room was so comfortable, clean and made me feel at peace. The kitchen, the hammock, and the yoga studio were my favorite parts. As most people would feel visiting Costa Rica, I could’ve just lived there forever. As a woman traveling alone, I felt welcomed and overjoyed to meet so many amazing people traveling and doing the same thing I was. I will be back to Danyasa without a doubt. Much love!
Claire, May 2017
I stayed here for nearly a week in July of 2013, and my memories of this tranquil place situated in the quiet town of Domincal make my heart happy. Even if you are not staying at their eco-retreat (now called Danyasa), taking a class in the studio (Bamboo YogaPlay) is an experience you won’t forget. This studio is the epitome of the beauty in yoga.
Jess, May 2017
Our stay at Danyasa was perfect and exactly as described in the listing. Their eco-retreat was calm, relaxing, very safe, and Brendan and his team of hosts were always so friendly and welcoming. This was our last stop in Costa Rica and we truly felt it was our favorite. In addition, the rooms were incredibly clean and the bed was super comfortable. The outdoor shower was also really nice and refreshing. I can’t wait to come back to Costa Rica and we would definitely stay at Danyasa again.
Natalie, May 2017
I had a wonderful time here. As a lone female traveler, I do my best to ensure that I’m safe and comfortable during my travels. Not only is Danyasa super safe, it is extremely clean, comfortable and modern. I met many other women who were traveling alone as well. I didn’t get a chance to take a yoga class, but the studio is huge and gorgeous with such a mellow vibe.
Kimara, May 2017
Super clean, super friendly, felt safe, and so happy there was parking! The shipping container had fantastic air conditioning, a great bed, and soft sheets and towels. I loved the smell of the hand soap, the small things make all the difference.
Eileen, May 2017
Danyasa is an incredible place to stay. I met so many wonderful people passing through Dominical at Danyasa–a few who will be life long friends. The yoga studio is spectacular and the classes offered are varied–all incredible. I stayed in the womb which was perfect for me as a solo traveler looking for time to myself on a budget. The entire property is spectacular and allows for you to feel like you are always surrounded by nature. The outdoor shower is amazing! I will be back soon.
Pablo, May 2017
We immediately felt welcomed at Danyasa from the moment we walked in the door. All of the people were so friendly and helpful, and the accommodations were exactly what we expected. We really enjoyed meeting the other guests as well as Brendan and Sofia. The two owners knew everyone in town and helped us find surfing, yoga, and restaurants in Dominical. Their partnership with other businesses made it really easy to sign up for surf lessons, and get reservations at restaurants. Overall, we had a fantastic time and will be sure to return next time we visit Costa Rica.
Bryan, May 2017
I was so happy when I arrived just in time for Sofia's yoga class. I loved her teaching using play in your pose and be strong and flexible just like bamboo. The studio is beautiful, big and spacious. Brandon was so helpful in accommodating taxis from the airport and patient in communicating as I was researching places to visit on my travels throughout Costa Rica. The other teachers were amazing as well. I highly recommend for you to explore for yourself. They provided me the basic necessities and I was very pleased. The people I met there were also fun and interesting. This was a trip of a lifetime and I hope to return soon.
Alicia, May 2017

Jocelyn, May 2017
I loved this place so much for multiple reasons: The staff is welcoming and helpful. It attracts a diverse crowd of yogis. The construction of the units with shipping containers is brilliant. Its clean. It oozes authenticity and I felt like I was at a new home from day 1.
Guest, May 2017
This place is magical! If you are looking for a place to just be, look no further. If you are looking for a place to find yourself, you found it. If you are looking for a place that will make you feel complete; this is it. From all yoga classes I have taken, to the friendliness of staff, the level of genuine care, the amount of amazing and heartwarming hugs, this place is a dream come true! The sheets are super soft, if you can book yourself into the suite, the beds are super comfy!! All yoga instructors are different, which makes it super enjoyable to join every single class. We were supposed to be here for 8 nights but we ended up extending another 5 more nights. Even though it was fully booked those guys figured out a way to keep us in the Danyasa-tribe. I loved every single second of it, Brendan and Sofiah, you are amazing. Thank you for making me feel this way.
Rebecca, May 2017
I am so grateful for the last 3 months in Dominical. To have been a part of Danyasa yoga studio as a massage therapist/ rosen method bodyworker. I have also enjoyed the yoga classes and dance with lovely, skilled teachers. The place has such a feminine, nurturing vibe. Thank you!
Schirin, May 2017
Beauty, hospitality, vitality and sensuality through design and dance. Danyasa and Bamboo Yoga Play Eco-Resort is the perfect place for your immersion into deeper levels of Self. Brendan and Sofiah are the perfect hosts. You'll feel at home and inspired to live artfully.
On another note, the resort is a strong container for your group retreat. I co-lead a hoop dance yoga retreat here three years ago. Sofiah and Brendan were available every step of the way from scheduling to fulfillment of the retreat experience.
Jocelyn, May 2017
If you are looking for a great vibe, a friendly team, nice views, folks who know Dominical and where to get the best of everything, how to arrange everything, and amazing connections across the country, look no further. If they were not full many of the nights, I would have spent every night there.
The yoga studio is beautiful, and the sound system for the classes and the Friday night ecstatic dance is of the highest quality. They have a great team of lovely ladies who give the place a very nurturing and cozy feel, and the many eco touches help you feel great about supporting something positive for the environment.
