    Hi! I'm considering booking a yoga retreat at El Sabanero - found it on YogaRetreats. Add "/el-sabanero-eco-lodge-/7-day-harmonic-shakti-yoga-retreat-in-costa-rica-" to the URL and you can see the listing. How/what site did you use to book your stay and how much did it cost? Did you do a pre-set retreat? What's the food and yoga like? I am a fairly experience Yogi and particularly love Vinyasa Flow, Bikram, Ashtanga. Any tips, advice, etc would be so helpful! THANK YOU!
