the land of pura vida

April 20-27, 2024

daily yoga (asana, pranayama + meditation, healthy + locally-influenced meals, hike + waterfall swims, wellness-inspired workshops, zip-lining through the canopies, opportunities to challenge your body + mind, and connecting with community (kula).


spend a week with us in the luscious jungle and coastline of nosara, costa rica, where you will feel the transformative energy of being somewhere new, reconnect with nature, and dive into your inner and outer worlds.


your chance to be present with yourself.

Join us for a week-long journey where you will peel back the layers that are hiding who you really are. 

Come as you are.

Leave as who were always meant to be.


This journey is for you if you are looking for an escape from your everyday routine- so you can reconnect with and rediscover your body, mind and spirit. Whether you practice yoga daily, or have never practiced at all, you will reap the benefits of the physical practices (asana), breathwork (pranayama), and meditation (swadhyaya) I will be guiding you through. So, beginners, welcome!

We will be practicing together, dining together for almost every meal, and taking trips together to foster a strong sense of community. I believe that real-life human connection can lead to even more powerful transformations, especially in a world where we are separated by screens most of the time.

Everyday will begin with a 2-hour practice (yoga asana, pranayama and journaling), and end with a restorative or meditative practice. Our week will begin with a cultural excursion to truly appreciate the lush and robust country of Costa Rica. We will have daily activities planned, such as hiking or zip-lining, and will spend plenty of time in the water (surfing optional).

And to those hoping to rest and recharge, don't worry! The retreat is designed to be a holistic experience - practice, play, and power-down - so you can return home feeling energized and refreshed.
