Join Jennifer in Costa Rica’s Nicoya Peninsula, one of the world’s Blue Zones, for a week of yoga, nature, fresh local food and self-exploration. Begin your new year with a shift of perspective rather than a list of resolutions. According to Dan Buettner’s book, The Blue Zones, people tend to not only live longer but thrive by including the following in their everyday life: Move, Eat Whole Foods, Have a Sense of Purpose, Connect with your Family and Community, and incorporate Rest & Relaxation. Be ready to live easier, not harder.
A variety of yoga classes and mindfulness practices will be offered daily to explore the Blue Zone principles. Plenty of free time will be available ,as you step away from daily life, to be in nature, rest and relax, and connect with the vibrant community the retreat will create. You will leave with not only the knowledge but having the experience of how the elements of diet, lifestyle and outlook lead to an amazing quality of life. Yoga classes will be available for all levels of practice including vinyasa, therapeutic, yin and restorative. Take home materials will be given to support your meditation and journaling. The Costa Rican climate will provide the perfect backdrop to start your new year a new way!

Situated on four acres of unspoiled tropical beach, you will find beautiful swimming areas and also outcroppings of rock where natural tide pools form.

Jennifer is an E-RYT500 yoga instructor on Hilton Head Island, SC where she teaches both group classes and private clients. Her favorite ways to teach our outside on the beach where you can really ground into the earth and reach into the sky, and chair yoga which makes yoga accessible to those who find getting on the ground challenging. Jennifer began her yoga journey after accepting that depression and anger were taking over. Yoga gave her the awareness and power of choice and she uses her sense of humor to open up this awareness to others.

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.
