A yoga retreat is a transformative journey. You want to choose one that will truly light you up and meet you where you’re at in terms of your yoga practice, your level of self-awareness, and your desires for adventure. The one you choose can make all the difference in your quest for inner peace and self-discovery.
I’m offering two distinct options that promise unique experience, one nestled in the mountains of Alajuela, Costa Rica, and the other amidst the ocean and jungle landscapes of Belize. Whether you seek grounding and restoration or a thrilling exploration of your limits, these retreats offer the perfect avenues for personal growth.
Of course, I’d recommend both – one for a mid-year reboot and one to send the year out with a bang. Here’s what each offers and how to decide what’s right for you!

Choosing Your Path:
Your choice to attend a yoga retreat is a huge step toward your personal goals. Deciding the right one for you depends on many factors, including:

Selecting the right yoga retreat is a deeply personal decision.

Listen to your inner voice, and let the path to serenity unfold before you. Both adventures promise to awaken your inner explorer and yogi – even if you didn’t know they were there.
Attending both retreats means experiencing the yin and yang of your inner journey—finding peace and purpose in Alajuela and testing your boundaries in Belize. It's a dual immersion into tranquility and adventure, a comprehensive approach to self-discovery that promises a richer, more multifaceted you at the journey's end.
