15I was wrong about Nosara.
I am going to a language school which is there with whom I hav ealready studied and feel trusting of them.
I seem to be able to find people who speak Spanish when I go to CR when there are english speaking people around.
So it goes.. I am going to go to a small beach town with a good language school and find yoga in the same small city. I am not so worried about if there ar etourists though I shy away from them. I travel and stay in nontourist places in between the study places. I like yoga studiso because I like doing yoga wiht other people. I like studying it and teaching it and developing fun and possible future plans with healthy minded good positive people. I find the Osho people at pacha mama to be too cultish.. I have interacted with them over the internet. They have a little group in my city here which is too mentally disconnected. Fine for many, not for me.
You dont need to help me. Just relax. Do yoga on your porch. I will go to my little places and find what I need.

16this might be the most confusing conversation i have had on thorn tree -- and there have been many.
you said, among other things, that you were going to a language school in dominical. now you say you are going to a language school in nosara. if you are looking for a language school, also consider samara and the intercultura school there.
it's sad, really that you have no interest in mountains. you are missing some of the best parts of costa rica - plus - a more mild climate. rainforests, cloudforests, volcanoes, ancient lava fields, wildlife, rushing rivers, the great lake arenal, to name a few. obviously, it's your trip and your choice.
you also said "Please help me out." and then went on to say "You dont need to help me."
anyway - i think you have some resources for your quest and hope it works for you. if you could come down to earth a bit and give us some more information about your trip, we could certainly help you with lodging and transportation recommendations -- but obviously, you can handle that yourself.

18I said plesae help me out because I was hoping someone might have EXACT names of yoga studios in PT.
I have a language school already selected which has a few sites- D and PT.
I do NOT need lodging or transportation help. I knwo wo to look that up and the school has services which are reliable.
I wanted to correspond with specific studios to find out if there were workshops on certain dates which i might attend if I had advanc enotice. For example, last year Yogaplay at Dominical had a 3 day workshop which I didnt knwo about until I arrived, unfortunately the last day was my departure day from San jose.
You guys are jumping with indo I didnt ask for as well as distracting info.
All readers and potential travelers have a right to ask nicely and to prefer mountains, beaches, churches, rivers, meat, cats, cars, bus, air transport.
I wont come back to LP. This has become a time water. So sad

20love that time water! one of my favorites..........
and -- why does my post at #1 not fulfill your needs?
wait -- it just occurred to me -- sugee is able to arrange a suitable language school, all lodging and transportation for his/her time in costa rica but can't figure out how to find a yoga studio in tamarindo? of which there are many?
really? boomer is right, sugee, you asked for a name.... he gave you one.

21well, tamarindo is one of the most beautiful areas in Nicoya, Tamarindo town itself is quite colorful with plenty of local Tico flavor. Here you can find several bakeries, an outdoor vegetable market, an art gallery, pottery stores, a beauty spa and more than 40 restaurants, bars and discos with cuisines to suit every palette.You can check it out http://www.yogafinder.com/yoga.cfm?yogacity=Tamarindo&yogacountry=Costa%20Rica. I am not in Tamarindo yet, this info was gave by my Brother. I have Taken yoga in Costa Rica , but in a place called Pranamar Villas. (http://pranamarvillas.com/) it was a great experience, I think that Yoga in Costa Rica is an amazing experience , You will love Tamarindo I am sure!

22tamarindo: 60 restaurants and counting.
james- if you have not been there, you are just guessing as to what it's like.
for some, it is heavenly with a subway, tcby, those 60 restaurants, lots of surf shops, upscale shopping. for others, it is not a place they want to be. expensive, pretentious, about 180 degrees from any kind of costa rican authenticity. (in the morning, you can watch as the cars and buses come into town, bearing the costa ricans who work in tamarindo. very few "workers" actually live there) except for the signs in spanish, it could be a town on the coast of california. count me among those who don't want to be there -- and i've actually been there.

23I lived there for a year in 2004 and loved it....now I can't spend an afternoon there without hating it. Its just still possible to enjoy that golden bay which does have something for everyone (when you aren't getting shaken down by the Colombians). The town itself is an absolute disaster and if the truth were told there probably isn't a single person there who wouldn't sell out tomorrow if only they could (they can't say that and "burst the bubble" though of course- if they do they will never be able to sell!)...

24thank you James. I use yogafinder at times, but it is often NOT accurate and simply didnt use it. I will be fine. The school also has a class. I am deciding where to spend my weekends in case I might be able to attend a special workshop one place or another when I am there. Advance planning and info has its ins and outs. results always vary.
