Pranamar's manifestation began a long time ago, but each situation and experience has led us to exactly where we are now. Pranamar is a dream, a vision, an accumulation of talents and personalities all joined together in an effort to create and sustain this unique, unforgettable place.
At the heart of Pranamar are owners Susan Money and Greg Mullins, whose hotel experience began nearly 20 years ago when they opened their first bed and breakfast in Costa Rica. Finding themselves to be quite popular they enlarged their vision and built the immediately successful Florblanca Hotel in Santa Teresa. As time went by, and the family expanded, the vision for a place more focused on their love of Yoga and simple elegance unfolded.
Amongst the Pranamar extended family is co-owner Stefano Allegri, originally from Milan, Italy, now living in Costa Rica for almost 20 years. Stefano built and ran a hotel in Tamarindo for many years, while also teaching Martial Arts in his Dojo. After extensive studies in Costa Rica, USA and India, Stefano's skills as a massage therapist are considered the best in the area. Besides his work as a masseuse, he is also a certified Pilates and Yoga instructor and teaches classes in our studio.
Another integral part of the Pranamar family is Nancy Goodfellow, whom you'll find hard at work in our Yoga studio. Born and raised in California, she left the States more than 15 years ago to join her mother, Susan, in search of adventure in Costa Rica. Nancy's life passion and dharma is teaching Yoga and she has studied and practiced for many years. She teaches our daily yoga classes and private lessons, and is director of our Yoga Retreats program.
Pranamar Villas and Yoga Retreat is the creation and vision of years of experience and passion from a myriad of diverse people. Our extended family includes many cultures and nationalities, ages and interests, for we work together as a family and as a team. We invite everyone to experience the sacred beauty of Costa Rica and enjoy the gifts that Nature so abundantly offers us here.
From our family to you...we welcome you to be our guests at Pranamar!!
