More is not better. Eliminate the “no pain, no gain” mentality.

At Hacienda del Sol we believe physical movement should be treated as a nutrient that feeds your freedom to move and melts away stress hormones. Activities that accomplish this is what we call nutritious movement. Nutritious movement is also about cultivating a deeper connection with your body and not just pushing as hard as you can so you can to burn more calories or get “better results”. The best results come when you use physical activity to melt stress hormones and gain pain free movement. You do this by going to your edge but not falling past it. You know you’ve gone past it when you are performing a physical activity purely using a stress hormone dump. This is experienced as a feeling of separation from your body or the infamous tunnel vision. The antidote for this is to always remain mindful of what you are doing. Nutritious movement conditions you that when you are experiencing a mind-body disconnection, you will slow down, reconnect, and then continue exploring your edge while never going over it. This guarantees you’ll be processing the stress hormones rather than adding to your daily stress load, and safely expanding your physical freedom.

Our primal yoga classes, reflect and recharge classes, and primal fitness classes, are all rich with nutritious movement.

Primal Yoga:

  • It moves dynamically between tensión and releasing, the Yang and the Yin.
  • Focus is on movement. 90 blissful minutes of dipping in and out into flow state.

Primal Fitness:

  • High intensity training, rich in ranges of motion.
  • Primal fitness offers an antidote for the no pain, no gain mentality that inevitably leads to injury.
  • Engage in progressive body movement exercises that take you to your limit while still managing to strengthen your body-mind connection.

Reflect & Recharge Classes:

  • A collection of western and eastern Yin practices focused on activating the parasympathetic nervous system in unique ways, while teaching you the essential skill of processing the stress that has accumulated through out the day, therefore avoiding the eventual condition of chronic stress.
  • Tree top dinning 🌿💫 tropical open air dinning. Sip on coconuts 🥥 and watch as monkeys 🐒 pass by 🙌🏼 #sustainabletravel #concioustravel #ecotravel #ecoluxury #costaricaretreat #haciendadelsolcr
  • Pura Bungalow #2 recently remodeled and refurnished with custom handmade old teak furniture and this incredible canopy bed. The original high vaulted ceilings keep the bungalow fresh and spacious (even though it does also have air conditioning). If you’ve stayed in this bungalow before you’ll notice we added the glass doors in the bathroom so that you have the option for it to be open to the jungle or closed in, but still have the incredible view while showering!  Give us a comment if you love this bungalow ❤️
  • So excited for all our new #primal and #keto menu selections 😋 healthy food has to taste good and be easy, otherwise it’s impossible to live your life actually enjoying eating healthy food! If it’s a “diet” then it will never last. Focus on finding healthy things that you actually like and will make at home. It doesn’t have to be what we make, it  has to be what you like! Happy cooking, and happy lunch time!!
