Reset, refocus, and learn how to access the joy that lies within. In our everyday lives, it is easy to fill the calendar to the max and stretch our limits. When life gets stressful, it is easy to forget how to create our own self-care rituals. This retreat has been designed to bring awareness to the quality of thoughts, habits in body movement and posture, and the overflowing of our calendars. During your seven days stay you will be encouraged to slow down, breathe deep, connect with nature, and move mindfully. All levels of yoga are welcome. Outside of daily yoga practice and meditation, you will have the opportunity to connect with the lush rainforest and beaches on the Costa Rican Coast. Become more mindful of the simple pleasures of life and find joy within yourself.
Studies are now showing that cultivating gratitude actually makes you happy – and being happy cultivates wellness! Developing these habits is often easier when we step outside of our norm. The beauty of Costa Rica will inspire a shift you can bring home with you.

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.
