Creating SPACE Within
La Fortuna, Costa Rica Retreat with Rachel & Melissa

Join Rachel & Melissa for a nurturing 7-day Yoga + Sound Healing retreat!

Creating Space is absolutely necessary if we desire to have personal growth and expansion. Space is created in many ways within the physical body and consciousness. This process looks and feels different for everyone, as we are all unique individuals with our own life experiences and stories. Therefore, we designed this retreat specifically to support your intention for creating space within, through the sacred practices of yoga + movement, sound healing, guided meditation, breath-work, and love.
Above all, this retreat will celebrate YOU.

To begin, every day will start in the F L O W with delicious, local meals to nourish your body. Feel grounded and centered by experiencing our beautiful Earth Mother through ALL of your senses. Afterwards, we’ll connect with your physical body through daily yoga + yin yoga practice. Allow your consciousness to expand inward + outward with daily sound healing sessions. Relax and heal in Costa Rica’s natural volcanic mineral springs. Open your heart and connect with the local community.

Finally, the time is yours to spend doing as much or as little as your body + heart desire! We want you to feel FREE to lounge around at the pool with a good book, or engage in some fun outdoor activities if you are feeling more adventurous!
All Human Beings are welcome!

Rachel White, owner of SPACE Yoga Studio, began her yoga journey in 1997 at Ashtanga Yoga Studio in Norman, OK. Throughout the years, yoga has been her constant…the place to connect and feel. In 2012, she made the choice to deepen her practice, and enroll in teacher training at YogaLife in Norman, OK. She received her RYT-200 in 2013 and began teaching.Throughout the years she has found many new roles in the yoga community. From becoming Reiki certified in 2015, to finding her voice and leading guided meditations, Rachel has embraced her yoga journey with immense love and gratitude. Opening SPACE Yoga Studio in 2018 has brought more roles and opportunities for her own personal growth and expansion. She currently teaches hot vinyasa flow, deep slow flow, chair yoga, and gentle/beginner’s yoga. She also is very involved in the Norman community, donating time and resources to help others.

Rachel truly believes in co-creating. She is deeply passionate about guiding others to be fully present in their bodies, and to discover what they need and what they do not. She hopes to share space with you soon, in whatever way that manifests!

Melissa Hobson is a Sound Healer, Usui-Tibetan Reiki Master, Lithotherapist and a Neonatal Intensive Care RN. She is a deeply spiritual and devoted student of the Universe. Her passion for holistic healing modalities came from experiencing a personal health journey that Western medicine alone could not heal. She became relentless in her pursuit for knowledge, dedicating her time and energy to truly understanding these ancient vibrational techniques, and how specific frequencies heal the body, mind and soul.

Melissa has been doing individual healing sessions, workshops and group sound events in Oklahoma since 2013. Her deepest desire is to create a peaceful and loving space, where people can strengthen their own intuition, realize their creative power and connect more authentically with themselves + the world around them!

Travel Insurance

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). 

Read more about our insurance partners and their policies here. We encourage you to research the insurance company and policy that best meets your needs.
