A Phoenix Rising Yoga Retreat:
Soul renewal and empowerment through yoga and meditation

Playa Uvita, Costa Rica Retreat with Lindsey Gallegos

Join me for this soul healing and empowerment retreat on a private beach resort in Costa Rica! This retreat is designed to help participants heal and connect to their deep well of light within and awaken their inner-phoenix through the practice of Hatha yoga, yoga nidra, and mala making. 

Hatha yoga is a style of yoga that focuses on physical postures, breath control, and meditation to align the body, mind, and soul. During this retreat, participants will have the opportunity to begin or deepen their yoga practice and learn new techniques to enhance their mind-body-soul connection. I welcome yogis of all abilities and can modify any practice based on individual needs and goals. I offer very gentle and healing yoga practices.

Yoga Nidra is a powerful relaxation practice that promotes deep rest, soul healing, and manifestation. Through guided meditation and visualization, participants will experience a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping that will help them release stress and anxiety so they can heal and connect fully with their inner wisdom. If you are a fan of yoga nidra, I guarantee you will experience several magical nidra experiences throughout this retreat.

Mala making is a meditative and intentional practice that involves stringing beads and creating an intentional yoga necklace. Participants will spend time each session creating their own mala and then tying and finishing it on the last day to take home as a reminder of their retreat intentions.

In addition to these practices, participants will have plenty of time to explore the natural beauty of Costa Rica’s Pacific coast. They’ll enjoy delicious, healthy meals made from locally sourced ingredients. Participants will travel home from this retreat with a newfound sense of purpose, connection, empowerment, and deep healing. Register today for this life-changing yoga retreat to heal, empower and connect to your soul purpose and unleash your inner-phoenix.

Yoga Styles and Practice:

The focus of this retreat will be healing and empowerment so we can connect to and create from our deep inner-sanctuary. Unleashing our true inner-light so we can burn brightly in this world – just like the phoenix rising. We will engage in gentle Hatha yoga practices during morning sessions. The rest of the retreat will focus on deep Nidra meditations, self-compassion activities, private healing sessions, and exploring our creativity through mala making. Participants will leave feeling deeply connected to their inner-source of wellness and have a toolbox of strategies to use when they feel disconnected. In addition, participants will have the opportunity to cleanse and detox through healthy coastal food, deep contemplation, and the magical effects of the Costa Rican culture and environment.

“I really enjoy Lindsey’s yoga teaching. Her guided journey connects not only your physical self but your mental space as well. She encourages you to focus on not only where you hold stress in your body but where you are at ease. She also walks you through recognizing where your mental space is and acknowledging that. I always feel refreshed, grounded, and energized after spending time on my mat with Lindsey, my Happy Little Yogi.” – S.

Travel Insurance

We cannot emphasize more the importance of travel insurance. As we all know, especially as travelers, “life happens.” Whether it’s family, work, mother nature, or a change of heart, it is important to be prepared in case you need to unexpectedly change your travel plans. Often for less than $150, you can purchase a travel insurance policy and be protected in the event that you need to make a change or need to be covered financially prior to or during your trip. 

We have partnered with two insurance companies: Trawick International and CSA Travel Insurance (available for U.S. Residents only). 

Read more about our insurance partners and their policies here. We encourage you to research the insurance company and policy that best meets your needs.
