Slaves to the Waves in Costa Rica with Kula

  • Who/What: Schuyler Grant, yoga rock star, and Allison Sinatra, yogi and board certified shaman, take a who's who of Tribeca's hardcore and trendy Kula Yoga Project for a week of yoga and surfing at a private beach in Costa Rica.
  • Why: Some retreats serve up yoga and hotel rooms, others massages and organic food. SOME freaks, however, will take you on a shamanic journey to the depths of your soul, and ALSO give you the surfing, yoga, organic food, and massages. Nevermind the howler monkeys, macaws, and mangoes, and the interesting cross-section of very limber New Yorkers....
