Namaha is a Sanskrit word that means “not me” or “it is not about me.”

It reflects the notion that the yogi is not in control of his/her life or the universe and that he/she submits to a higher power or the higher Self. Namaha is used in mantras and shlokas.

In yoga, chanting a mantra is a practice that yogis use to focus concentration on one thought and/or still the mind in meditation. When namaha is part of a mantra, it reminds the yogi that he/she is part of the universe and gains peace only by removing the focus from him/herself.

Let me help you plan your
perfect vacation

I have been living in Costa Rica for the past 15 years... I've lived in several different places and I choose Nosara as my special place. I know my way around and I love to surf and enjoy the perks of living in beautiful Costa Rica, so I know where to go see the turtles nesting, or where to get some nice waves, get surf lessons and also all the yoga activities around the area.


Nosara has had a sustained growth in la last 10 years and has many attractions, -mostly dependant on our awesome climate, nature and wildlife- that can be better enjoyed with a good planning and some useful information I can help you have some fun on a reasonable budget. I hook you up with Horseback Riding tours, ATV tours, bicicle rentals, car/truck transportation, etc.

    ...To walk it's about 30 min. to the beach (playa pelada) but there is a good bicycle you can use. She's a very nice open hearted person with a lot of knowledge. I will stay there again. Also the dog "Papi gordo" is super sweet and a good protector of the house. I can recommend it a lot!

    Rosemarie’s house is simple, though it has everything you might need. It is surrounded by the jungle, and you can see many animals around while relaxing in the hammock.
