One of the biggest additions to the Envision grounds in 2016 is the new Yoga Village which includes two movement zones for revelers searching to discover wellness, serenity, consciousness, nature, and mindfulness through sacred movement and yoga practice. Designed and engineered by sustainable building team Living Space Costa Rica, these semi-permanent yoga and movement temples also include a juice bar, chill-out lounge and space allocated to those seeking a substance-free campground.


Building on the ethos of the festival itself, Envision has extended its reach outside the festival grounds in 2016 by embarking on a series of six specialized Educational Retreats – intimate events leading up to and directly following the festival itself with some of the Envision’s featured teachers such as David Wolfe, 7Song, Troy Hadeed, Kaypacha, and Stephen Brooks. These retreats are part of a new branch of Envision Productions focused on bringing the transformational qualities of the festival into everyday routine and include a pre-festival tour through Costa Rica.  One of the featured retreats, Embody, encompasses an in depth immersion into the overlap of dance, yoga, somatic intelligence, self-care, nature’s patterns, living rhythm, and intimacy with life-energy flow and takes place February 19th – 24th in Uvita, just ahead of Envision. Further retreat details and ticket information can be found online at Envision Education.
