Past Trips


The yoga retreat was superb in all areas! The Akai retreat truly is a place of beauty and serenity and the food was beautifully prepared, healthy and delicious! Melissa and Andrea worked well together drawing on each other’s strengths to beautifully balance their unique teaching styles. The morning meditation and silent breakfast helped us to start our day centred and peaceful. The daily teaching was interesting and thought provoking, and the yoga practice was challenging and strengthening. I felt at peace with my life and strengthened physically and spiritually to deal with the many challenges that it brings.
I first took a yoga class with Melissa in our home town Kelowna, she quickly became one of my favourite teachers. So when I heard she was putting on a retreat in Nosara I signed up without hesitation. It was a bonus to have Suniti co-host as they both have so much to offer each person. What beautiful women inside and out. The yoga/meditation took place in an outdoor studio surrounded with the sounds of the jungle and the ocean view in the distance. It was peaceful and breathtaking. I went solo but I shared my hut with two other women. Our room was large with a private bathroom and outdoor shower. Everything on the property was well-maintained and beautifully designed. I feel blessed that I had the opportunity to participate in a retreat hosted by Melissa and Suniti.
I am feeling blessed to be returning for a week with Melissa in the Jungle. The food is nourishing and delicious, accommodations are luxurious. Whether you want to walk one of the many beautiful beaches nearby, float in the pool, curl up with a good book or experience one of the many Costa Rica excursions, the choice is yours. Melissa is one of the very best facilitators and teachers I have had the honour to experience retreat with. Looking forward to returning for my third year. Shannon Port Perry ON
