Have you ever dreamed about a family vacation where you find balance for yourself and share the mindfulness practice with your children and teens? Harmony Family Yoga is hosting a family-friendly wellness retreat to spend 6-nights at Santa Teresa, Costa Rica.
Treat yourself to a week-long “me time” to focus on self-care and reawaken inner wisdom. Offer your children and
teenagers the “kids yoga time” to learn mindful techniques and build a lifelong healthy habit. Gather your loved ones for a “family fun time” to strengthen the bonds and re-align mind, body, and spirit.
Starting each day with a breath-work ritual, followed by a gentle vinyasa yoga to wake up your body. At least 1-2 daily yoga classes will be offered with combined asana, breathwork, and guided meditation. Give yourself space and permission to just be and join an evening in restorative yoga, mindfulness meditation, sound healing, or yoga Nidra session.
Located at the world-famous surfing spot, when you’re not practicing yoga you can visit the beach, surf, swim in the pool, go on an excursion (snorkeling, waterfall hikes, eco-tour, etc.), or simply bath in nature. Join as an individual, couple, or family for rejuvenation, connection, reflection, and more. Let us take care of your physical health as well as your mental and emotional balance. Find peace in your heart and bring harmony to your family.
Family Yoga: is where children, parents, and even grandparents spend healthy, happy, and quality time together. Enjoy practicing yoga while we support each other and most importantly have fun. We encourage you to introduce yoga to your children and families by sharing your own practice and journey with them.

Cici is a mother, a daughter, and a lifelong learner. She has dedicated herself to yoga and incorporating its philosophy into her family life since discovering its joys and benefits. She earned her RYT 200 Yoga Alliance certification, Children and Teens, Trauma-informed Yoga, and taught her first children’s yoga class for physically and mentally challenged children at an orphanage in a local village outside of Ubud in Bali, Indonesia. Cici was inspired to see the joy on every child’s face while attempting each movement despite their limitations.
Cici’s background includes working on the creative and production side in the film and television industry. She was also a principal dancer for 10 years with an award-winning youth dance academy during which time she performed with numerous live performance productions and recordings.
Now she aims to share the healing she experienced through yoga with families and friends throughout the community. Cici’s goal is to create a nurturing, safe and non-competitive space for everyone to receive the benefit of yoga by offering a practice that you can embody in your daily lives and find balance mentally, physically, and spiritually. She shares yoga and mindfulness education to help and support children, parents, and families in our community with the mission of harmony.

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). For Non-U.S. Residents this policy with Trawick insurance is available: Safe Travels Multi-National.
We encourage you to research the insurance company and policy that best meets your needs.
