7-Day Chakra Activation Retreat In Playa Uvita, Costa Rica
With Myla Ivers and Lauren LiBrandi

You deserve a break! This Summertime yoga retreat will help rejuvenate and revitalize your overworked mind and tired body. There is nothing quite like heading to the turquoise waters of Costa Rica that will give you exactly that!

This retreat has everything you could want to bring the spark back into your life. Each day we will activate one of the 7 chakras to help bring balance and harmony back into your life. The chakras are our energy centers in the human body. When life gets chaotic (and we know it has been!) focusing on these centers can massively transform your life. Get ready to release old, stagnant energy so you can feel fully present and alive in your body.

This particular retreat center felt incredibly special to us and we are so excited to experience all it has to offer with you! The eco-lodge borders the national park Bellena Marine and hosts a variety of animals like monkeys, exotic birds, and marine life. Imagine waking up to an ocean view with the birds chirping and whales swimming right outside your window.

Start every day with an energizing power yoga class, followed by a fresh coconut, coffee, and homemade breakfast. Steps away from the yoga shala, which is embedded with crystals and based on the elements, is a private beach meant just for our group!

You can spend your days taking a stand-up paddle board class, hiking, and swimming in either the pool or the sea. Afterwards, balance your chakras at the spa as it offers massage, facials, exfoliations, and volcanic clay wraps. As for exciting excursions we have the opportunity to horseback ride to the Uvita waterfall! You can even head to Tortuga for the top-rated snorkeling experience or zip-line through the clouds!

Additionally, for the adventurous ones, the beautiful landscape of Uvita offers ATV tours and surf lessons. Later in the evenings, feel free to unwind with yin yoga, reiki healing, or an akashic records reading.

Join Myla & Lauren in Playa Uvita, Costa Rica! This is the best time for you to get the self-care and love you need to feel your best in 2023!

With over 10,000 hours of yoga teaching experience, Myla Ivers is a leading voice in the rapidly growing yoga and healing industry. Her unique approach to healing is both practical and spiritual. Her goal is to teach others the tools to heal from emotional trauma so they don’t have to look outside themselves as often for results. Myla believes issues that arise in our physical life all stem from an imbalance in energy. Myla gets to the heart of the problem so that the issue never returns.

Myla co-hosts international yoga retreats that create community, adventure and a safe space to heal.  She is an advanced certified akashic records practitioner with Dr. Linda Howe and a certified Reiki master.

Master Your Magic is on a mission to mentor women to swap fear and confusion for clarity and empowerment. I believe everyone, no matter where you are starting from, has the ability to manifest a life that feels like magic.


Lauren has been studying the body for her entire life. Since she was three she began expressing herself through movement and dance and eventually received her BFA in Dance Choreography from FSU in 2007. She performed all over the world and found various ways to move, twist and fly her body across space. Eventually she tore her ACL and meniscus which caused her to be unable to dance. From this experience, Lauren found that yoga was a way she could heal her body, move and breathe at the same time. It became a deep form of meditation and she began to study the various styles of teaching and methods of healing. She became a Reiki master, yoga teacher of vinyasa, yin, hot and sculpt. Lauren now teaches a very unique combination class combining yoga, reiki and deep partner stretching! I can say from experience- it’s juicy! Receiving a healing session from Lauren is a powerful yet calming experience. Everyone is going through something different and Laurens intuitive ability helps her cut straight to the source of the issue. No matter what life has thrown at you, Lauren can help speed up the healing process by holding immensely powerful space for the receiver.


Myla and Lauren’s yoga/meditation/healing retreat this past summer in Greece was a remarkable experience and the beginning of my journey towards self-discovery, healing, and transformation. With their guidance, I have gained more awareness of my underlying fears, doubts, and worries and now have greater clarity and control over my emotions, thoughts, and feelings. Myla and Lauren each bring their own unique style to their yoga classes and together they are truly a magnificent force. I am beyond grateful to have been invited to be a part of this transformational journey and can’t thank them enough for all their support, encouragement, and for empowering me to trust my own intuitive voice!

“It was amazing. I had so much fun. Myla and Lauren brought such an amazing experience that uplifted my soul.”-Past Retreat Participant

“If you do not believe in magic than you have not met Myla Ivers. Back in April 2017 I had the privilege of attending Myla’s yoga retreat in Thailand. My life was forever changed. She led us through a week of Chakra Balancing yoga classes over the oceans of beautiful Ko Samui. This healing experience exceeded my expectations. Not only through physical yoga classes, but her one on one Reiki sessions, mind-expanding insight on my personal journey, and emotional conversations that heal the soul. I can only describe this experience as being high off energy. I can’t wait for the next one.”-Past Retreat Participant

“Lauren & Myla are the yin and yang – the detox to retox experience you want and don’t even know how to ask for because it’s such a game changer. After going to Nicaragua with L & M, the bar of how I travel is now set higher – with every activity the intention to transform was thought out with deep love and creativity. If you’re reading this – Don’t think, just GO!” — Past Retreat Participant

“Myla and Lauren really put in a lot of heart, energy and time to each class that we did in Greece  Every class was dedicated to a Greek God and had a theme! It was such an amazing experience to do yoga in such a beautiful resort, with breathtaking views. I made such special connections with new friends, old friends and with myself. I don’t ever want to miss any retreats they go on because they sure know how to create a life changing experience!”
