Pura Vida Immersion

With Nate Amado

September 19 - 25, 2020


Imagine a week immersed in PURA VIDA – beautiful greenery, beaches, and waterfalls all around – moving and grooving with a tribe of like-minds.

You’ll learn how to move your body with skill and with grace, how to be strong to be helpful, how to defend yourself and others, how to win the morning so you can win the day, how to breathe for relaxation and for energy, how to sharpen your mind for ultimate clarity, and more.

You’ll move with PURPOSE, explore the lush Nature all around you, and adapt your new skills to the real world. Challenges will be overcome, and growth will be had.

You’ll get to enjoy the best of what life has to offer in the jungles of Costa Rica, from sunrise to sunset.
