Yoga Shala (practice hall)

The second floor, the Yoga Shala (a place to practice yoga, tai chi, movement or music), welcomes you into an expansive 1200 square foot yoga practice hall with a 16 foot (4.85 meter) high ceiling with long overhanging roof eaves. Its hardwood floor provides comfort to bare feet. The fanned rafters above give way to rising, cloud burst, roof eaves that encourage a free-flowing feeling with a sense of no beginning nor end inherent in traditional culture.

This hall is ideal for movement arts such as Yoga, Tai-Chi, and dance; the acoustics due to the parabolic shape of the roof are incredible for music and singing as well! This floor is great for hammock lounging too! At the north side of the Lapa Lapa Lodge, there is a wooden staircase, with swirled hardwood steps that leads up to the observatory and meditation cupola. Behind the stairs with large open windows overlooking the gardens are located two guest rooms with indoor bath. There is also a massage room and study and the high ceilings allow the warm air to rise, keeping the rooms and halls cool in the heat of the tropical day.

At Guaria de Osa various types of healing modalities are offered seasonally, such as: Healing with local medicinal plants, Tui Na -therapeutic massage, foot reflexology and Reiki are also gifts the staff can offer.
