About this trip

Join Matthew Higdon, RYT, and Kasey Hall, Ayurvedic Chef, for a week of love, work, and play at the world-renowned Blue Spirit Resort in Nosara, Costa Rica. We’ll explore yoga , Ayurveda, meditation and breath work through the eyes of each of the five elements to achieve balance within and with the world around us. You’ll leave inspired, invigorated, enlivened and possess the tools for lifelong connection to Self, purpose, and community. 

You’ll have ample time to balance your study with play and enjoy Costa Rica. Melt into a seemingly endless, private beachfront, explore the lush surrounding jungle, learn how to surf, zipline, or hang with locals in the nearby town. We’ll also host Acroyoga jam sessions, inversion workshops, slacklining playtime, and latin dance lessons. 

RYT hours for existing teachers or those interested in completing their 200YTT are available as part of this experience. 

All sessions are optional for those looking for deeper relaxation on this beautiful reprieve.

Accomodations

Our retreat will be held at Blue Spirit Costa Rica, voted one of the best yoga escapes by Yoga Journal. Located in Nosara,  Blue Spirit is perched on a hilltop overlooking the Pacific Ocean and a three-mile white sand beach that is protected as a turtle refuge. The pristine nature, subtropical climate, dedicated staff, and the healing energy of the Nosara community create the ideal environment for an unforgettable and deeply nurturing experience.


Blue Spirit is located within a blue zone , which is a geographic region where more people live to be 100 than any other area of the world.

Reviews

Soulkissed 2019 with Bethany, Kasey, and Mary was phenomenal. Both relaxing and energizing, there was uptime, downtime, and any other time you might need. The resort, staff, and facilities were fantastic, and so clean, like how do they keep it so clean? And the food was perfect, just enough variety and consistency for anyone to be happy. The space that was held so that us participants could go inward and bloom, transform, or change was created by B, K, and M, it was joyous to be playful again. A+ Would Recommend, Would Repeat
Soulkissed was absolutely amazing. Bluespirit was a stunning location that immediately upon arrival offered relaxation. The setting couldn't have facilitated a more comprehensive week of resetting. It was evident that Bethany and Kacey had done their work planning, as well. Each day was logically executed and each activity (i.e. platting a tree, the beach clean up, etc.) significant to the whole experience. Bethany's yoga classes were soulful and strong. Sometimes we moved quickly and other times we slowed down for a deeper experience. It was a perfect blend of methodology. This retreat exceeded my expectations immensely, I hope to go back!
I can’t wait to go on this amazing trip again. As a man I wasn’t sure how I would connect with everyone. My worry was quickly put to rest as I connect deeply with everyone on this trip and came out with a better understanding of myself. Bethany knows what she is doing.
