Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Retreats

Mindfulness is a meditative or contemplative intervention that has been used for thousands of years to address a plethora of health issues such as anxiety, depression, despair, as well as numerous physical and physiological conditions, including high blood pressure, fibromyalgia, chronic pain, low back pain, and rheumatoid arthritis.

Be it the effects of emotional trauma or a physical condition, mindfulness is the perfect and effective antidote for you ⁓ and you won’t need a doctor’s prescription to avail yourself of this safe intervention.

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) was a pioneering program which introduced into Western medicine by Jon Kabat-Zinn, Ph.D., in 1997 at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, where Dr. Carlo-Casellas took his training in MBSR.

Today, MBSR retreats are offered in exotic locations throughout the world. One such place is the Blue Osa Yoga Retreat and Spa, where Jaime Casellas holds his mindfulness retreats. Blue Osa is a secluded paradise located at the juncture of a rainforest and ocean. With a soft opening in 2011, Blue Osa has now reached a standard of excellence charted from the beginning.
Walk outside to breathe in the salt air and watch the ocean waves from the hotel’s beach. At Blue Osa, pamper yourself with a treatment at the full-service spa and enjoy amenities like an outdoor pool, free breakfast, or a drink at the bar/lounge.
