It all started when…
After a lot of talking about it, we are ready to start upgrading Vida Asana to a micro-Intentional Community. This is not a big stretch, as we already have the culture, and there are already six of us who live here in community, plus our retreat guests that join us every week.
The plans are set, and we are ready to reinvent, reuse, reimagine, and rebuild Vida Asana - allowing us to upgrade to a more eco-friendly and regenerative infrastructure and grounds. This will also allow us to create four apartments, for people who decide they want to be a permanent part of the community. Each of these four apartments will be owned for one week (or more) by you and your friends. It could mean you live here part time, or vacation, or share with friends - and each week you stay in your apartment, you are on a yoga retreat, eating fresh healthy food, minutes from the beach, and taking classes with some of the top yoga instructors in the world.
What powers us?
Being Sustainable + Eco Conscious
Solar energy, glorious and mindful outdoor showers, heat pump hot water heaters, heat recovery coils in the showers, bio-digesters, water meters, water filtration, reclaimed water, efficient appliances, communal meals, gardens, and love.
We will be zero net energy, we will use 0 VOC paints and adhesives, we will use an ERV, to reduce lost cooling. We will use bamboo and ethically harvested woods, harvested within 500 kilometers of Vida Asana. We will use natural pest control, and treatment of all woods, to extend the life of these renewable resources.
You are someone that believes in sustainability, you believe in the magic of a place, you believe in the transformational power of connection and community. You love being so close to the beach, you’re into eating healthy, local, farm fresh meals. You’re interested in exploring Costa Rica. You tell your friends about all of the cool stuff there is to see and do here, and you want to bring them here and show them. You’re proud to call Vida Asana your home away from home.
Vida Asana is booked between November 28th of 2018, and July 30th of 2019. As a result, we will plan to break ground on July 30th 2019, and complete construction on January 30th 2020. We will not book any events, until December 28th, the start of our busiest season. Our construction team advises us that we can have all 16 guest rooms complete within 4.5 months, and the total construction within 6 months.
The four units available for fractional ownership will be released on a staggered pricing model. The first 50 weeks are now available for $10k for those who commit before we start construction. This entitles the owner to one transformational yoga vacation annually in their suite, with all food and yoga classes covered by the annual maintenance fee. Owner financing will be offered to reduce barriers and objections to purchase, with three pricing models to choose from. With every unit purchase, a gift will be made to Waves of Hope, the non-profit we work with intimately. Each year parents that have lost a child are offered an all expenses paid trip to Vida Asana for a one week retreat of healing through yoga, meditation, sharing circles, activities (both bonding and fun!), and therapy.
Additional weeks will be released post-construction for, when potential buyers can view and tour the suite while they are already here and have already fallen in love with the vision of Vida Asana Community. Price post construction is projected to be set at $20k, with 50 weeks released annually.
