FAQ

YogAyahuasca is offering you the opportunity to grow, as a human being and as a soul. It offers you the opportunity to learn key skills to advance in your spiritual path. The combination of theoretical class and personal experiences make it easy to integrate your discoveries into your own spiritual practice.

Yes, definitely. You will have the opportunity to learn a lot and enlarge your understanding of yourself and of the universe.

Our program has been designed to provide great teachings and experiences to everyone. There is no specific pre-requisite. We try to teach in a way that it is understandable for everyone.

You will most likely not learn a lot about asanas, meditation techniques or prayanama. But for sure, your practice will evolve in a more energetic, mindful and spiritual dimension. You will be able to experience by yourself what the experienced yogi describe in books and integrate it in your spiritual practice.

Doing ayahuasca is sufficient and complete by itself. But the combination of yoga, meditation and breathwork allow you to:

  • Be prepared for the ceremony in a way that the energy is flowing, your chakras are more open and your resistances are less active for the ceremony. You can then expect a deeper experience and more profound healing.
  • Ease and accelerate the healing you got during the ceremony. The yoga, meditation and breathwork help to move out the old energy that is now free from resistances.
  • Doing yoga, meditation and breathwork just after a ceremony helps you integrate the ayahuasca experience into your spiritual practice. You will learn how to achieve similar state of consciousness by yourself, without any substance.

One effect of ayahuasca is to wake up the pineal gland, which is linked to the third eye chakra. It leads people in a deep perceptive state where it is possible to experience a profound spiritual experience. I mean a profound connection with one’s spirit. You can achieve the same kind of connection with yoga, meditation or breathwork, but be ready to train daily for years or decades.

It is safe to take ayahuasca with the appropriate guidance in an appropriate setting, as we do at YogAyahuasca.

Medical contraindications are well documented and can be checked in the Ayahuasca page.

It is quiet common and natural to feel fear when you think of drinking ayahuasca for the first time. If last minute you don’t feel like doing it, it is 100% fine. We are glad that you respect your own feelings.

If you can afford it and if there is availability, a more personal environment is recommended. After an ayahuasca ceremony, some elements from the past might wake up, some old emotions might raise, some old traumas might come back to be healed. It is then more comfortable to have some privacy to feel free to let things go out. A single room or sharing your space with your beloved one or close friends is recommended.

Costa Rica’s health care system is considered to be one of the best in Latin America, and many doctors speak fluent English. Public hospitals are located in every province and provide good service at low cost.

Yes, but it is always important and wise to follow precautions when you are traveling. Many precautions may seem like basic common sense, but are excellent reminders. For instance, if you rent a car, do not leave exposed belongings inside and venture off. Do not leave unattended items on the beach, like your money and cell phone when you go in the water. Use the hotel safe for jewelry and important items, such as passports and credit cards. It’s a good idea to make a copy of your passport to have on hand.Travel insurance may be something to consider. It’s also recommended to avoid visiting an ATM machine after dark, taking nighttime trips to bars or the beach, or walks in areas you don’t know are safe. Be aware of your surroundings. Do not show displays of wealth, such as expensive watches and jewelry. Violent crime is extremely rare in Costa Rica, but theft is a concern. Petty crime is most frequent in the capital city of San Jose, where pick pocketing, mugging, and purse snatching occur.

English is the first foreign language and the second most taught language in Costa Rica, followed by French, German, Italian and Chinese.  Spanish is the official language of Costa Rica.  English is spoken natively by many people (but not everyone) on both coasts, particularly on the Caribbean side. Many Costa Ricans are bilingual since most of them work in tourism or customer service.

The Costa Rican unit of currency is the colón, with a value fluctuating between 500 – 550 colones per $1 US dollar. The cost of travel in Costa Rica is higher than other countries in Central America, but is still significantly cheaper than in the U.S. or Europe. Most major hotels and resorts, large restaurants, and chain supermarkets will accept US dollars and change, while small stores, roadside vendors, and If you plan to use US money in Costa Rica, bring bills of $20 or smaller. And be sure the money is in good condition. If you have change coming, expect in to be in colones. Using US dollars is a good option in Costa Rica, rather than exchanging US dollars into colones. Another good option if you need colones is to use your debit card at ATM. Only get what you think you will use while in Costa Rica, converting the money back to US dollars will cost you in fees.

A valid passport from your country of residence is required to travel to Costa Rica. There are no requirements to obtain a visa for travel to Costa Rica for US Citizens, Canadians and most European countries.
