What is Tortuga Wellness Program?

Tortuga is therapeutic.
It repairs and strengthens aged, stressed or challenged weakened muscle groups.

Inspired in Costa Rica, Tortuga wellness is a dynamic exercise program, designed for the adult body.

The Tortuga Wellness Program demonstrates a more comprehensive way to exercise the body. Tortuga not only promotes wellness, rejuvenation, and longevity, it holds a promise of renewed energy and strength, adding years of quality living to your life.

Tortuga encompasses the intelligence of yoga, the discipline of Pilates, the energy work of Qigong, and the flow of dance and martial arts. It benefits the entire body, the cardiovascular system, a sharpening of the mind and a profound increase in energy.  In general, it makes the body strong and flexible, like bamboo.  It demands precise movements and coordinates breathing, that both targets and challenges the myofascial system. 


Peter Mico is a talented, dedicated and engaging teacher of both yoga and somatics who can assist you in navigating the difficult and troublesome path of aging. His passion for life and service is infectious. His skills and experiences make him both entertaining and knowledgeable.

I wanted to tell you how amazing the yoga retreat was: you make a special team. You brought a whole other experience to the retreat that I don't think you will find anywhere else... so thank you.

Our trips are designed to attune body and mind to care about longevity, to embrace the new ways of being strong and fit in our bodies. Because, let’s face it, these damn knees aren’t exactly what they used to be. 

At the core of our retreats is yoga, but probably not what you are picturing. This yoga is accessible to the beginner and the advanced yogi alike, because it focuses on joint health, dynamic range of motion and core strength. Combined with meditation, delicious, abundant and healthy meals, and adventuring through Greek Islands, we can pretty much guarantee you’ll be feeling fresh.

" Peter is a crafter of moments."

Peter Mico


An unwaveringly devoted student and teacher, Peter has found profound joy in guiding non-traditional yoga students on a path of gradual lifestyle changes that enhance one's relationship to self, community and planet. 


He has had the honor of studying with many master teachers around the world in his 23 years of yoga practice. His main teachers for the past 10 years have been Tias Little and Surya Little at Prajna Yoga School. His other teachers and primary influences are: Erich Schiffman, Manuso Manos, Shiva Rea, Rodney Yee and James D'Silva.


Currently, Peter is living in rural Costa Rice living and studying the principles of a lifestyle centered around a wellness that is intrinsic to the health of the planet.​

Peter's warm personality brings a relaxed and playful style to his classes. His deep knowledge of anatomy and the myofacial systems of the body inform his teaching, and guide his students into greater strength, flexibility, alignment, and grace. Peter's approach is greatly influenced by Iyengar Yoga, Buddhism, and his personal experiences both as a teacher and a student.


Always ready with an absurd joke or a piece of ancient wisdom, Peter’s down to earth demeanor, his knowledge of the intricacies of the body’s mechanisms, and inspired practice draws a range of devoted students.

"Blue Earth Yoga was one of the most amazing adventures in my whole life. Going to a completely unknown place, no logistics to worry about, staying in the wonderful villa, comfortable room, wonderful food, such helpful yoga mentoring and skillfully led discussions but, most of all, instant community! It was just magical for me how everyone was accepted by everyone else for who they were and all were at one with the group."
