The vibrant and bountiful coastline of Santa Teresa, Costa Rica invites you to tune in to the rejuvenating rhythms of nature. Nestled on the Nicoya Peninsula on the edge of the Pacific Ocean, you will be inspired and nourished by the pristine beaches, jungle covered hills, colorful wildlife, and breathtaking sunsets. The environmentally conscious beachfront boutique hotel offers space for you to slow down and tune in to your true nature. You will have an abundance of time to immerse in activities that nourish your spirit, including daily yoga and meditation, relaxing at the pool and spa, reading under the palm trees, and long walks along the coastline or jungle hillside.
During the Tuning In retreat, you will easily drift into a tranquil and leisurely pace, allowing for any veils of tension to be lifted. Each day, Heidi will guide yoga classes that will be devoted to exploring ways you can tune in to and flow with the rhythms of nature. You will also learn how to create sincere and meaningful personal yoga practices that effortlessly weave together breath, movement, mudra, and mantra. Heidi’s signature style of creative and compassionate teaching incorporates alignment-based flowing practices, restorative yoga, pranayama, and aromatherapy. She will also introduce you to L.A.F.: Lean In, Allow, and Flow, which is her authentic approach to igniting play, joy, and gratitude into life experiences, on and off the mat. When you lean in, allow, and flow you find clarity and recognize your natural rhythm that is just like Costa Rica: Vibrant, Bountiful, and Beautiful.
